So I wanted to bring a few things up here.
First is about actual engagement. This is ministry is literally named the Ministry of Engagement but still faces probably the most actual engagement problems. For instance, the Minister of Engagement posted this thread two days ago and staffers or “passer-byers” are yet to respond. And yes, people for sure have a personal life. And I 100% respect that! Prioritize those real-life issues! In fact, I was/have been dealing with some big irl issues that have affected my ability to stay active on NS for the past week, or even month, come to say. But I’m back for a bit. That’s why I want to propose some of the following ideas about a “sales pitch/actual engagement” to hopefully stir up some commentary here, or well, engagement.
If you’re not interested in participating in the ministry, you’re free to leave! No one will be offended!
I want to laud Pronoun’s efforts, or should I say, their first order of business as Minister, which was launching a Discord poll to see who was actually interested in staying in/working in the ministry. That should be each minister’s first step. But…what’s next?
This might be a little radical but launching something like the Office of Assembly Affairs for the ministry.
Honestly, I’m not sure about what I think of this. It’s an idea I’ve kicked around in my mind for a while (even back when I was the Minister of Culture) about having some sort of thing where people announce a leave-of-absence just for the note of the Ministry leadership team. If they’re working on a project of some sorts, it can also be helpful to know there. And if you don’t know what the Office of Assembly Affairs is, it is simply just a place where Legislators request a leave of absence or a change to put in the official record sheet.
Advertise the forums and our regional Discord server in the welcome telegram, and in other main documents.
We already do this. But we can launch more advertisement. Maybe have it be front-and-center on the WFE. Or in the welcome telegram. Something like that.
*The dispatch system.
Yeah. Not much can be said here mainly because I am in a rush right now. Besides, there is some work around that concept.
These are more of ideas for how to “simplify the region” when a new player joins. Main thing is we don’t have to be some complex.
I want to see what others think about this stuff
Oh and please don’t take this as heated or like a official plan – bc it’s not, more just for debate
