Public Council Disbanded

After discussion with the public, Council, Mur and other influential figured I have decided that the Public Council test will be stopped. It is hard to find a number of figures that have the organisational abilities and knowledge of MD to be able to fully run MD while letting the public choose these players. Mur said this issue would occur and gave that as one of the reasons why he personally chose each member of the Hidden Council. It was an interesting test.

The members of the PC did a good job however due to a lack of organisation and members going inactive for various reasons they did not manage to accomplish what I hoped they would be able to do in the time they were active.

In place of the PC I shall be forming smaller groups of interested people in various areas to do the work that the PC was hoped to perform. Keep an eye out for announcements.

public council sounds like "democracy" ..and that simply does not work in MD or in any realm that is fully based on your own skills and achievements. I must say I hoped this would work out but I stated my opinion that it won't. 


You need authority for a council. That is obtained in two ways, wither under the immunity of anonymity or by obtaining it through your role over the years. 


I believe a public council could work if its made from all the powerful people in md, in rotation.. but .. this smells like corruption over the time, i give it a 50% chance to work, but i am not willing to "try" it myself. The risk would be that all influential people in MD will be "disbanded" as well if this fails, or corrupted, and i do not want to risk that. It is however something to think about in concept, maybe someone finds the missing link that could replace anonimity...then a public council will work (and remain stable over time)


Just a note, i am currently avoiding to make any crucial decisions about MD social/organizational structure... I am too "away" from MD at this moment, and that makes me vulnerable to false information, so do not count on me to do such experiments in the near future. But there are people able to do it and i trust them. I only give advice now, not "directives".


"One day i'll be back" :P
