Something a bit different

I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I also can't think of where the proper place to put it might be. See, I'm starting up a new game. I've already got all the players for it, sorry, but I want to try something, and I need your help. Whose help? All of yours, anyone who's interested.

See, I want to try something new. The setting for this game is an Eclipse Phase orbital all-digital city inspired HEAVILY by the game Transistor, and one of the major aspects of life in this city is direct democracy and deciding things by voting. To that end, I want to make this subforum completely public: http://online-roleplaying.com/forums...lay.php?f=1923

What does completely public mean? It means I want a city of more than just me and my players. I want anyone who wants to to vote on any of the polls, comment on any of the polls with a character name, and even make any poll they feel may be of interest to the citizens of the City.

All I ask is that any comment or poll you make be made under a character name, along with two Declarations, single words that describe what that character wants to be publicly known for. So a rockstar might list themselves as Screaming K : Music, Fame, while a schoolteacher might be Ms. Johnson : Education, Discipline. Declarations are part of that character; they don't change from post to post. Additionally, if I like that character, they might appear in the narrative of the actual story.

Thanks, and sorry if I put this in the wrong place.

So, what are your feelings on vote rigging?

Perhaps these polls should go on the portal - you know, because so many people vote in the portal polls .

As much as I love corrupting democracy with a flood of false votes (who doesn't?), I would like to keep this process at a one-vote-per-person basis. But I will keep this vote rigging option in mind for the future...

Okay, okay. I think I've got it. Just one quick question.

one-vote-per-person, is that per real person? Or are votes being distributed to fictional people too?

For now, per real person. I'll post up when and if fictional people get to vote, depending on how things go.
