<UN> Community Conference Minutes
2PM GMT+1 ✦ 1st June 2019 ✦ <UN> Conference Room
“CONNECT. CONFER. CONDUCT.”
Our second ever <UN> Community Conference was conducted last Saturday (June 1st) by the Department of Suggestions and Department of Community. We’ve compiled all the essentials into minutes for members who missed the event and for members who wish to have a look back. The conference lasted a good 3 hours, with much content to cover and much thoughts to hear from our community!
We run this year’s conference with the motto “Connect. Confer. Conduct.”, representing the United Nation’s dedication to connect with the community to listen to their opinions and ideas, to confer with the relevant units and divisions to create the best solutions, and to conduct changes in the base and community, learning from the impacts of our changes and continuing to connect and listen again to the community.
You are welcomed to comment under this topic itself should you wish to express opinion or reaction towards the contents covered during the event. You are also welcomed to send in suggestions at our <UN> Suggestions Box in case you were not able to do so during the event. We’ll also provide a Google link here for the conference video. Enjoy!
(Special thanks to Whixie for filming the event and Aurelli for compiling the screenshots for our minutes!)

Below are the the findings of DOC shared by DOC Leader and Owner Asya.co and Admin mattyo29.
B. OPEN FORUM
This segment was an open discussion for all attendees of the conference. The platform was given to the members to give their suggestions that concern the United Nations and its people. Members were also welcomed to give their point of view towards the suggestions shared.
Below is are the suggestions and following discussions received during the Open Forum.
1. Suggestion by Jenna_Leigh
“I have an idea to put forth regarding the debate of training rooms. In other agencies I’ve been in, I’ve seen a prep area which leads to a training room. There could always be a space for obtaining arrows and a few seats for Trainee to sit on, with a few interactable items. When both Trainee and Trainer are ready, they can go into a teleport. It helps with the chaos and minimizes population drop.”

2. Suggestion by HikariAi
“I suggest we have a bigger base so that there will be more space between the DOE games are and the Training Station. These two areas are currently beside each other. I’ve seen that Trainers sometimes struggle in training when there is an event going on, due to the chat spam from the games.”

3. Suggestion by HikariAi
“As a mobile user, I have a hard time filling security. I’d like to suggest a new method, where color plates replace switches and we step on them, or place the switches with a bit of space from each other. On mobile, all switches have the same name without knowing which one is for which color tile.”

4. Suggestion by xBelleLuna
“The switch at the Front Stations is kinda hard to explain to new joiners about to be trained, as they need to step forward one tile to go through the gate. Is there a way for us to simply flick the switch and they’d be directly teleported to Security?”

5. Suggestion by supmydudes4
“I’ve been noticing a lot of problems with people trolling and I’m sure this has been highly discussed. I think there needs to be a stricter or more “monetizable” way of dealing with them. Perhaps a direct 1 day ban when they are clearly displaying disruptive behaviour, instead of giving them small warnings.”

“What are the different ranks in the UN and how do we obtain them?”
7. Question by -.hefner.-
“Why are we holding a conference?”
8. Question by Death2827
“There’s something I’ve always wondered about the OOA system. What is the process to determine whether a member is deserving of the position of Pre-Trial OOA? I understand that the pre-trial period is to test the ability to the member, but I am curious whether there is some sort of discussion made when a Government member is close to 800k rank points?”

“Please give one thing UN is best at and one thing UN is worst at.”
10. Question by supmydudes4
“For someone like me who started out in UN since January/February, if I were to buy my way to OOA, would I start with Pre-Trial OOA or Trial OOA?”
11. Question by LeossAlt to Gabbi922 (Owner)
“Apart from running base, accepting badges and clearing scoreboards, what other responsibilities do Owners have?”
12. Question by -Mendax to Cyndii. (UN_Founder)
