Hello, is anyone else out there?
My sons, the galaxy is burning. We all bear witness to a final truth - our way is not the way of the Imperium. You have never stood in the Emperor's light. Never worn the Imperial eagle. And you never will. You shall stand in midnight clad, Your claws forever red with the lifeblood of my father's failed empire, Warring through the centuries as the talons of a murdered god. Rise, my sons, and take your wrath across the stars, In my name. In my memory. Rise, my Night Lords.”

I am here. It is unfortunate that Perspectives lost nearly 12 years of posts, and we lost the entire history of the Model UN and Virtual Government.

If we manage to get the Virtual Government up and running again, I'm afraid I will be unable to participate as a member due to my professional obligations. However, I will observe the forum for nostalgic reasons, and I will be available as an "elder statesman" to give advice to the members.

Good to see you folks again. I sent SharkRider a PM on Facebook, but haven't got a response yet.

Anyone know how else to reach her?
I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.

She has sent me e-mails from multiple accounts over the years. Only one of these accounts is still registered. I can send you the address by PM.

If I can get at least two others interested I would like to run it as if we are separate nations who merging into one almost like a reverse Yugoslavia...

Good idea, @ Imperator.
Ya gotta find somebody like Tito, a Croatian, who would turn in his grave were he alive today.

Sharkie emailed me this morning from the addy two-five gave me. She said thanks, good to know p.com is still kickin'. No other response.

Let's hope we can get some members interested. I would like to see this place up and running again, and I'm curious to see what kind of simulation it will turn out to be. I have saved the rules thread for the Perspecticus Parliament in case we need a model to work from. For inspiration, here are the forum icons for the previous iterations of the Virtual Government:

Is there anyone who posted so far interested in participating in this?

I am not, but I'm wondering if it might not be a good idea for one of you to begin a thread on Op-Ed explaining VG and inviting people to have a look? I'd bet 95% of members/visitors have no idea it's here.

Good, Sail, but don't you think some more explanation might be good? If I didn't already know what a 'virtual government' is I'd probably overlook your post altogether.

Correct, Wilmy. Two-Five can post the explanation.

My curiosity is piqued, what is a virtual government?

In a virtual government, the members simulate a government. At various points, Perspectives has had a virtual US government, a Model UN, and the government of a fictitious nation.

This forum can also be used as a special debate forum for Perspectives. The previous Virtual Government forum was used for debate duels, which are highly structured one-on-one debates where the participants are supposed to use evidence from external sources to back up their positions on a particular issue. Although there were only five debate duels in the forum's history, the quality of the debate was high.

The debate duel format could also be modified and adapted to simulate a mock trial court or mock appellate court. A court simulation would not require a large number of participants, nor would it even require a permanent membership list.

Back when Perspectives used WowBB, I made the following image for fun. It portrays various simulations as separate forums. It uses the same style Admin used for the real forums.

The new simulation could be a hybrid or a combination of any of these.

Two-five, as I recall, the VG was fairly robust back in the day.
