    Welcome to the TSR Model House of Commons!



    Welcome to our community - please get stuck into debating and have a chat in the Commons Bar.


    You may have the following questions:


    How do I join a party?




    The best way to get involved with the MHoC is to join one of our many parties. In there you can form part of the internal community and get to post in a secret sub forum special to that party to carry out all of your internal party political shenanigans.

    Once in a party, you can get involved in a number of ways. You could take part in discussions, either in that party or the main MHoC forum - absolutely any user is allowed to do that so please do get stuck in! All of us started out in that way!

    If you're looking for a bit more fun, you could see if your party offers any policy ministerial positions where you get craft ideas on areas covering everything from drugs policy to taxes to silly walks. Better yet, you could become one of 50 of our MPs - which allows you to vote on laws proposed to the House.




    What parties can I choose from?



    TSR Conservative and Unionist Party
    TSR Labour Party
    TSR Liberal Party
    TSR Libertarian Party
    TSR National Conservative Party

    TSR uses a special version of proportional representation where any party can 'win' - so make sure you join the party that best represents your beliefs, rather than just a big name from the real world. TSR parties aren't linked to their equivalents in real life, so please do explore and ask plenty of questions.


    How do I become an MP?



    If you want to get headhunted for a party, or are not sure which one is best for you then drop a post in here and the community will help you out.

    If you like the idea of getting more involved in the MHoC then post in here, don't worry, it's not a commitment, so even if you're only slightly interested, you should still drop a note.

    All you need to drop down is the following information:

    Name: (your username)
    Preferred party(s) {if any, we can help you choose!}: (Conservative/Labour/Liberal/Libertarian/National Conservative)
    Social stance: (Examples: Left wing? Right wing? Liberal? Authoritarian? Centrist? Open minded? Any label you can think of which best describes you)
    Economic stance: (Examples: Left wing? Right wing? Communist? Libertarian? Centrist? Open minded? Any label you can think of which best describes you)
    Anything else: If there's something else you want to say, say it here


    Once you've done that, it might be worth saying hi in our chat thread.

    You can complete your journey to the MHoC by heading to this page and formally putting through your request to join the secret party subforum.

    FAQ about going further and becoming an MP
    FAQ
    What does an MP do?
    You will be the lifeblood of the MHoC community. In addition to doing the stuff that non-MPs can do (like take part in debates) you'll be one of 50 lucky people in the MP usergroup who gets to vote on new MHoC laws, you and you alone get to say whether a law passes or whether it fails and are key to deciding the future this dynamic game takes.

    Do I have to write my own laws?
    No, but it's fun. I'd wager that most MPs in the MHoC have never written their own bills. I was an MP for a year and only ever wrote two bills and one motion. If writing isn't your thing then you should just turn up to the items that other people have written and debate them, that's what I usually did.

    Do I have to vote?
    Yes, but don't worry, it literally takes seconds. Those with poor attendance will be scrutinised and subject to removal. But again don't worry, I'll be PMing you every night there's a new vote with the link so it's easy to keep yourself up to date.

    How long will I have to wait?
    I don't know, we've never tried this thread before, I'm trying to open the doors to becoming an MP to new users. We'll see how well it goes...

    This looks scary!
    Uhh... that's not a question. But don't worry, it really isn't. New MPs will receive a welcome pack from me explaining everything to you in detail, it's easy!.

    Do I have to use parliamentary language?
    Hell no. But feel free to do so if you want. The rest of us just write the same way we'd write in any debating forum.

    I have another question, where can I ask it?
    In here might be a good idea, else you could try going to ATS, that's my personal questions thread (similar to AAM)

    You guys are a bunch of neurotic nerds and this forum is really sad because you take it so seriously.
    Not really, it's just a game at the end of the day. It's effectively just a unique and more dynamic version of UK Politics and provides you with a different way of debating politics than you get elsewhere on the internet. It's all pretty laid back.

    There is a one quoting squeee but it seems to get stuck in a moderation queue every time it posts so only CAs and mods can see them
    So if someone new posts your bot will send a welcome post automatically?

    That's the idea. It's still being tested atm, but once I have it fully running I'll get it to update every 5 min or so through the day. To reduce page loads it only loads this thread when it discovered a new post (it checks for new notifications without downloading any webpages to reduce strain on TSR).

    Atm it checks:
    1) That it hasn't already quoted that user,
    2) That it is the users first post in this thread
    3) That they have fewer than 10 MHoC posts in the last 6 months.

    I'm still not sure new joiners can choose the Socialist Party or the Greens though, so the OP might need a tweak.

    But Fez, the OP is clearly a bot we need to reach out to whomever controls the bot... hmm I wonder whom that could be
    (Also can’t wait until Speakerbot tops the weekly activity rankings)

    I've updated the OP. I need to get the message to be edited a bit as atm it's a standard welcome message with with a tag at the top. I'll get it to change the message automatically when a party is closed or changes its name/color or anything, as well as grabbing the right links. For now my main thing is getting it so that SpeakerBots posts don't need approval before they can be seen -.-

    I suppose I should just respond here (mostly for the benefit of other people who might be interested in Labour) to make clear that I've been in touch with both members privately, and haven't ignored this.
