    In the spirit of making this more interactive and fun, how does one execute a coup on TSR? Or at least attempt to impose an authoritarian government / absolute monarchy?

    Normally via a violent revolution. We try to keep them clean but there's the occasional fatality or two.

    We have Votes of No Confidence whereby the government is voted to stand down, and a new coalition is formed

    Hack TSR and delete all the other parties so that there is only one party in the house of commons.

    You know what's funny? We once joked about doing this as the TSR Socialist Party a long time ago. Essentially, we were going to post a bunch of 'Provisional Government' Threads, post in the 'real' Government thread declaring it dissolved, etc. I think it was going to be a Mayday publicity stunt...

    Oh, I think the Mods are smart enough to read between the lines; and should be able to distinguish between incitement and an invitation to debate a political subject!

    I think alot of the mods and admins need overthrowing to be honest. Their integrity is non existent.

    I will join you in your quest to overthrow the government!

    I guess it would mean forming an army and spamming the forum with meaningless drivel. This will be hard however, as most of what is already on there, is meaningless drivel.

    But yes! Nonetheless, I imagine it would be forcibly forming your government with more people and more influence than the current one, and invading other parts of the forum.

    Throughout history revolutions and direct action has risen out of people's desire to change things. Clever leaders sense this, pre-empt it, and voluntarily effect change, whilst foolhardy despots blindly hope for the best, exhibiting misguided authoritarian tendencies. It's everywhere - from work places to governments!

    Sadly there is no means of the sort of revolution you seem to seek, being y'know, online and all. Perhaps you could try sending virus's to the government's computer(s)? I'm not sure.

    One pays off the mods and we then declare the current TSR Government void due to a technical error in the GE, ban the PM and cabinet for some trumped up reason or another and then pass the reigns over power over to you :sneakydevil:

    But in return you have to do our evil bidding for us, okay? But you still get to call yourself the TSR Prime Minister which is definitely what all the cool kids want to be :p:

    Not that this has ever happened before, you understand

    Only in TSR, there is absolute control by the admins and mods, so their reign of beligerence and intolerance is unchallenged. Anyone who starts a movement will be silenced, anyone who questions will get warned.

    Threads started by people questioning the logic and integrity of admins and mods usuaully close within minutes.
