I had to keep resizing it, so I may go back later and fix it up some more.
And yeah, I could pass on the cigar smoke too but something that can be looked into. I wouldn't even mind reviving the Metaverse Council to be honest, but I think some overall would definitely be in order; I think, and i must state as a Non-Councilor, this is strictly opinion, but they got inundated by the bureaucracy of it all.
I do know that I personally feel that any form of the MVC, old, new, or re-imagined, should be public.
The only still active MVC councilors that I know of personally, are Neilo, Mumblefratz, and Wyndstar. I think MarshallONeil may have been one too.
Here are some of my more serious proposals:
Coordinating with Wyndstar and the Devs with the Tourneys. Much like the original idea by Ghostwes last summer (that evolved into the MVL) since its all the exact same scenario played by everyone, we could easily have Inter-Empire Games.
Promoting the MVL. And finally, really trying to see what obstacles stand in the way of integrating into the AltMeta.
Supporting and increasing the MV Empires both new and old, such as having their respective emperors and most vocal members being able to communicate in a public central locale to spur new ideas, MV issues, and friendly taunting. The OP would list each empire and a very brief summary. Basically, one thread that links to all the empires main pages.
Reinstating and expanding on the link between the Player and the Developers. The MVC had/has this but due to almost a year's worth on inactivity on the part of the MVC, something that could be reinstated and expanded upon.
