Re: Governance mods?

On the JT2 server, which is predominantly anarchy survival, I've been developing a Voting Booths feature, which will allow players to submit measures for vote on issues and concerns of relevance to the community, such as auctioning abandoned properties or moving a controversial structure. The votin...

Re: Governance mods?

Getting the hang of how this forum works:) Well, a game is a collection of mods - I had to develop lots of tools to allow companies and governments. However, the mods don't aim to necessarily be compatible with all game types. Yes, in this case, though, I think it would be a palette of mods which pe...

Re: Governance mods?

oh , I get it . "ntnsndr" is short for "NaThaN SchNiDeR" -> NTNSNDR... so you must have helped write that paper. pretty cool. is this a follow up on it? you don't have to conform this. I get it if you're trying to keep a low profile. it must be hard doing that if you have a wiki...

Re: Governance mods?

Thanks, ywwv. I didn't assume the @ worked to notify—I just used it out of habit:) Is there a way to actually push notification, other than for people to subscribe to the thread? I agree on the automatic social contract. The way I'm currently building actually assumes simple consensus as the default...

Re: Governance mods?

@rubenwardy, wow, that's really neat! I think Capitalism would be fun! Probably more fun than real capitalism:) The approach I'm taking is less about designing a specific game than about creating some tools that would make it easier for people to build diverse games using diverse governance structur...

Re: Governance mods?

Thanks so much again for this—the mobkit idea makes a lot of sense. And yes, the enforcement mechanisms are key here, and I have a lot to learn about how best to implement it. On chat, one thing I've already been implementing is chat within a given "org," which could be either one's group ...

Re: Governance mods?

Thank you so much, @MisterE. Such a generous response. You really hit the nail on the head with emphasizing the centrality of who controls the server. If you're interested, I did a history of governance in online communities (ntnsndr.in/ImplicitFeudalism) that stresses, way back to the days of BBSes...

Re: Governance mods?

Thank you so much for the replies! @twoelk yes, you're right—more along the lines of the voting systems. And thanks for sharing the Agree Rules/newplayer examples. Those are definitely relevant. Are you aware of servers that use them? @ywwv, can you say more about the bill of rights you'd like to se...

Governance mods?

Greetings. I'm new to this community, but have become quite obsessed with Minetest in a short period of time:) I'm exploring the idea of using it as a sandbox for implementing a research project about online governance, outlined in this paper on the idea of "Modular Politics ." Basically, ...
