  1. For the past few days, I've introduced a new project to Smp2. This project is called the SSPD, which stands for Southern Smp2 Police Department. When mentioned to people who haven't heard of it yet people ask me "What is that?" or "What are you trying to accomplish with it?'' and most commonly "Isn't that what Moderators and the /Report tool are for?". My answer has almost always been "Not quite". This post should help narrow it down.

    Basically, we patrol Smp2, looking for acts of stealing, greifing, Etc. When we stumble upon such crimes, we look into, getting Moderators involved, and hopefully find the criminal responsible. You could say we are just "Side kicks" for the Moderators, Which we are.

    I am now trying to put together different "Squads" to help patrol the wilderness Frontier and I am also trying to divide the group into different sections. The different sections handle different tasks, such as patrolling, and looking for active moderators.

    If you would like to join the SSPD, there are only a few guide lines:

    - You have to have a ban record of 2 or less (Have more then 2 narrows down your opportunities)
    - You have to be active (If you are away for buisness or school, thats fine)

    You can join simply by either contacting me in-game on SMP2, My res is 3147; by posting on this thread; and by messaging me.
  2. I think it would be S2PD, because SSPD could mean any Smp Server.
  3. 1 question: Why Southern?
  4. And That.
  5. I voted that this is not a good idea. But if it was to be made I think only people who are very well known should be in it. The reason for this is because you can't trust everyone. Even if they havn't done anything wrong. Being active is not enough. Also having people who have been banned before isnt a good idea. Like the saying "Once you go nuts, you never go back" (of course i change a word so that it doesn't offend anyone).

    Edit: Plus I am in smp1, why does my opinion matter :p?
  6. because he works there is an SSRC which stands for southern.. and its sounds good.
    xI_LIKE_A_PIGx likes this.
  7. If EMC's moderation is ineffective, the staff will fix it, players do not need to concern themselves by creating groups like this. Simply by recruiting anyone and allowing them to rise up through the ranks can lead to power abuse, a problem which does not exist in the current moderation system.
  8. Why did this post remind me of 72...
  9. You may be thinking of my planned Neorepublican Armed Forces, a hybrid military and police force. The stated purpose of that is to protect and serve the New Republic and its citizens and enforce its law. :)
  10. Yep that's it :D
  11. Ok, to answer your question Mindlegokid, Souther pretty much because my res is located in Southern Smp2.

    And too you dudelol, your point has made it clear to me that the regulations to join are a bit, let me put it this way, not the greatest at the moment. You are right that people who have been banned would be bad. And yes, I am only making well known players members, for the same reason you have stated. I thank you because you have made several very valid and intelligent points.

    72Volt, not to be rude, which it may come off as, but i am not trying to overthrow Moderators, because they are the all and the mighty protectors of EMC, and the moderators are doing a great job at keeping the Empire safe. This project is only meant for the aid of the moderators. And there is no rise in power that anyone needs to worry about because if it gets out of hand, Someone with actual power will tell me. Now like i said, this wasn't meant to be rude, so if it offended you in any way, i am deeply sorry.

    Edit: I meant Southern, I didn't hit the key hard enough :p
