I don't know if this should be here, but does anyone wanna start up an online Model UN or something like it. I have the resources to buy a domain and get hosting, I current own a couple website I can use one of them and start a forum or something. If anyone is interested in this idea, please PM me or reply in this thread, I think it'll be a good idea, it'll be something like www.unol.org - Or maybe we can look at having on right here. I don't know just a suggestion.


Thanks,
Dexnell.

I'd always prefer a model Parliament, myself (hell, we've already had the elections), but good still.

I thought it was a good idea, so how do we go about this. Do you want it to be a TSR model UN? cause we may need an entire website. but first you need great support. I'm just throwing around ideas here.

Well, that would be excellent, especially given the success of the tsr election.
We couldn't have 650 odd members though :p:
It would probably have to be cabinet/shadow cabinet etc.

Good idea. I think having it here would create much more participation than if you had a separate website.

I thought there was already a model parliment, cause I'm minister of the Secondary Schools forums. Well, this model parliment could be more along the lines of the elctions on real issues. I still would like the model Un also, it's a growing thing, getting very popular and there's only one online and it's pretty low standard.

We should have it here, but we'd need a separate articles page or a small website somewhere else for other informations and files that can't be placed here, we'll hold all the important stuff here though.

yup, it wouldn't be as simple as the election was though. The membership of the parties would have to be in relation to the votes cast...

A model UN sounds like a great idea. I would probably show more interest in a model Parliament though... Issues a bit closer to home.

We could have a sub-forum that would be dedicated solely to that kind of information. I guess having a separate website wouldn't make much of a difference though.

Who'd come up with the topics and assign countries?

I don't imagine people from the losing parties would want to play a secondary role.

Well, interesting points being made here. Why can't we have both the model parliment and Un. We'll start with the model parliment cause as you said it's closer to home and we can gradually set up a TSR model UN. Let's get this to the mods and admins, people. I'm a member of the winning party, Woo Hoo!

Thanks,
Dexnell
