Yeah, like if you guys could read my mind then we would have trouble...
and i'm sure the Japs could sell you the software if you're interested...!? Personally i stick to what your saying when it matters and find your minds themselves rather uninteresting, but maybe if you thought it matterred then you might use it...!?

Some great ideas being passed about here, one comment i would make is i think treboria has a point regarding representation. His federation, which he has commited his empire to. Is ranked sixth in terms of GDP and ninth in terms of military, and i feel deserves representation

I'm sure Treboria's fed could definitely have a seat right now, as could just about any other fed. Just ask for an invite from Black Scorpion.
A lot of great ideas are going around yes, but not a lot of participation. Currently there are only 7 members of the Golden Council, some of whom don't know what, if any federation they represent.
From the sounds of it, there isn't any discussion going on within federations about nominating representatives.
Perhaps a simpler way to do this would be to have the top 2 feds have 2 seats each, and every other fed have 1 seat. That way there's plenty of room and seat makeup won't be changing weekly.
Also, is there anything going on about integrating this with TNN?
UnitedFools - The benefits of this kind of forum as opposed to the Bulletin Board have already been addressed in my very first post. It wasn't very explanatory though, so I'll give an example:
Debate about and plans for the action on Kenneth the Cheat could not have happened in this public forum, but would be much better suited to something like a Council. Where the most influential players...the players who care the most about the game are forming.
I feel like I'm talking an no one is really listening with this thing, and I'm tired of putting effort into it. So I'm not going to any more. =] I'll still participate in the Council, but if everyone is fine with it crumbling into a disorganized mess, that's fine with me too. Cheers.

Matty i think feds are picking representatives atm. I think part of the reason people havent signed up wholeheartedly is confusion over who is eligble for an invite.

Well… I think that in order to keep this alive we should have anyone who is interested and willing to participate, post in this board. This way we can all see how many and how much interest the Council has attracted.
If only the same people that have posted originally keep posting, than eventually they will get tired of doing so. IMO. But if different people keep posting and bringing ideas to the table, then this thing could really happen. I mean even if you think it’s a stupid idea, it would be nice to see it, then we can all decide whether is stupid or valid.
For example, say the 3 members of each federation that is currently participating as well as the ones who will participate, post here and voice their support and ideas.
If we ALL voice our opinions, then it could only get better.

Anything worth having is going to take time. Right now the AF has HYMYLAND as a rep and need to fill the 2nd seat. 12M needs to fill their last 2 seats. GP needs to fill its 2nd seat. Turan needs to fill its last 2 seats. LYTO has stepped up. Cicero and Darrow has stepped up. The Lynx Minor fed has been contacted. Matty don't give up yet. I love the work you started. BTW the chairman position should have a vote if we cannot find an unbiased chair. With the disclaimer that the chairman represents only one vote and represents 1 seat for its home fed.

Well Erehwon has asked for reps to step forward to represent Erehwon PAC, I have volunteered since AF hasn't even discussed it yet.
I will at the moment count on representing Erehwon Pac, if it's okay with those members.

ya matty i agree some things are better discussed behind closed doors.
