Uncyclopedia:Order of Uncyclopedia. This forum has been brought up in a different place and so caught my eye. However unlike in the other place I have found different problems that need addressing. Here is an extract from the intro:

"The current Grand Master is Chronarion.

The Order is limited to 20.5 Knights and Dames Grand Cross, 20 Knights and Dames Commander, and 200 Commanders. There are no limits on the total number of members of the fourth and fifth classes, but no more than 200 Officers and 300 Members may be appointed per year. Appointments are made on the advice of the Village Dump and Users. By convention, Admins are created Officers after appointment."

The problems that I can see here are firstly that the word "current" implies the Grand Master should be updated. Should we have the head admin (Romartus) take the position of Grand Master, or delete the word "current" and have an eternal Grand Master?

Secondly I am confused as to what an "officer" user refers to and what their roles are.

Finally the extract clearly states limits for numbers of GUNs, CUNs etc. even though if you win a certain award you get appointed to them. We could deal with this by either scrapping the limit that contradicts the other rules on awards or scrap the rules on awards gaining users positions and instead create and order that is limited to only active members and requires updating.

I see no point in numerical limits on the number of officers. It is not in our interest to give fallen-away members a status that new and active members are unable to attain, as in, "I've got mine and you can't have yours." (Every so often someone moves to my town and gets so active on the Planning Board that some old-timer says, "We've found someone who wants to be the last new resident.")
To answer your question, Officer status results in an immediate 10% pay increase. Given that this is all it means, let's not have more voting — especially voting on specific individuals, except where it serves to reward new users and perhaps get them to stay.
Romartus is indeed the current Grand Master. There is indeed only one of them, but the title does not confer immortality, so there is no reason that Chronarion should be it forever. The page should acknowledge previous Grand Masters, notably ChiefjusticeDS, whose calmness steered us through last year's turmoil. Spıke Ѧ 17:36 8-Feb-14
Thanks SPIKE. I will change it to fit that then. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:19, February 10, 2014 (UTC)
If we're going to do that you might want to add people like RC Murphy, Mordillo and numerous others who have held the tiller through choppy waters... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
You might hold off and see if we get additional input. (One contributor to this page typed his complete response into the field entitled Summary.) Spıke Ѧ 19:27 10-Feb-14
PS--No problem with the edits you made. Do you think we will risk running up against the former limit of 200 Officers appointed to the Order in 2014? Spıke Ѧ 19:35 10-Feb-14
Yes but having no limit is better than having a limit that is too high. Otherwise the limit would be pointless. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:57, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

Actually I was once accused of being his sockpuppet. Back in the day. I remember emailing him hoping to get him to come back, but he's free now. He's in a better place... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Ive always found it cheesy and I dont know anyone who's taken it seriously for a long time. We should scrap the whole thing and come up with a new one...or just stick to notm and ninja stars and the hall of shame. --ShabiDOO 01:34, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
