My idea is as simple as that: That two town rankings are added. One ranking will be called "Mayor" and another one will be called "Alliance Supervisor" or something along those lines. Also I'd like to suggest that some rights are added/removed from the current rankings and I believe there should be a big change to the Councillor. Read below for more details on both ideas. ________________________________________________________________________________ Currently there are only two rankings: The Founder and the Counsillor. This causes a problem. Any Founder can "steal" a town and if one is appointed as a Councillor he can kick other Councillors and normal members out of the town. Also if you want to give a specific job to a member of the town like sorting out the Invitations you have to give him the title of at least a Councillor so that he can do his job, which is risky since a Councillor has other rights like kicking out people, editing the town's profile etc. ________________________________________________________________________________ So here are some more details on the rankings, ordered by the amount of rights each ranking has... Mayor The Mayor is the leader of the town. He has complete control of the whole town. He has control of the forum, the alliances, the invitations etc. The Mayor at the beginning is the player that founded the town. A Mayor is able to appoint town members as Mayors, Founders, Councillors (and give rights to Councillors) and Alliance Supervisors. A Mayor is also able to remove rights from the four. Founder The Founder has exactly the same rights as the Mayor, only he can't degrade a Mayor. This allows a Mayor to give all the rights to a member of his town without the fear of losing his town. A Founder is able to appoint town members as Founders, Councillors (and give rights to Councillors) and Alliance Supervisors. A Founder is also able to remove rights from the three. Councillor The Councillor in my idea is very different from the current Councillor... A Councillor can have any rights a Founder or the Mayor will give him. I'll write a list of all the rights below. A Councillor is not able to give or remove any rights to/from other members. Alliance Supervisor (Title's name can be different, I can't think of a better name right now) The Alliance Supervisor is only able to accept invitations for Alliance, create an Alliance, leave an Alliance, disband an Alliance and invite towns to join an Alliance. An Alliance Supervisor is also able to accept invitations for common forums. What makes an Alliance Supervisor different from a Councillor with the right to do the above is that he will receive a notification whenever the town receives an invitation to join a common forum or an alliance. An Alliance Supervisor is not able to give or remove any rights to/from other town members. Minor Changes Minor change in Town Hall -> Residences (see image below). In Residences when you click on the player's name you get directed to the player's profile. ________________________________________________________________________________ Here is the list of the rights that the Founder or a Mayor may chose to give to a Councillor (I can only think of these, if I missed out anything tell me): Send Invitations (chosen by default) Edit Town's Profile (chosen by default) Dismiss members Create/Leave/Disband an Alliance and View Alliance's History Accept Invitation for Alliance Manage Forum A Councillor is NOT able to appoint other members as Councillors. ________________________________________________________________________________ Changes in Town hall: When you click the player's name it immediately directs you to the players profile. You have to tick the player's box (you can only chose one player at a time) and you can dismiss the player you chose or manage his rights. When you click on manage rights you get directed to a new window: If you tick Mayor, Founder or Alliance Supervisor you can immediately confirm. If you tick Councillor something extra appears: When you chose the rights you can Confirm. If you Confirm without choosing anything the first two will be set by default. ________________________________________________________________________________ Fancy Extras: Maybe there could only be one Mayor at a time and when you chose to make someone else a Mayor you'll be automatically degraded to a Founder ? Maybe Mayors could chose whether or not a Founder can manage the town forum (Councillors can't manage the forum as they are right now, 16/10/2010) ? ________________________________________________________________________________ Administration Does this idea meet the Ideas Guidelines & Criteria? Yes/No Is this idea appear on any of the Previously Suggested Ideas List? Yes/No ________________________________________________________________________________ I wish you like my idea.... it took me all day to write this whole post. Feel free to discuss and tell me if you'd like something to change or if you want me to add something.
