I think the immediate cause of the current slowness is twg's departure. The lack of proposal resolutions, in particular, has had a large impact on gameplay. However, that's hardly a sufficient condition for inactivity. I'm also busy IRL, which is why I haven't been generating much activity of my own. I think the players have become somewhat disengaged, for varying reasons, including those you mentioned, which is why no one has picked up the slack.
Making sure all of the reports get completed would be a start to engaging the Agoran public. Proposal resolutions are especially important; Promotor, Assessor, and Arbitor are the essential offices, and having any of them vacant halts gameplay. If we could get at least a basic level of activity going again, we would be in a better position to receive new members who might bring in more ideas. Historically, we get a bunch of registrations sometime around April and May, but if the game is totally dead people may not join. -Aris On Mon, Apr 8, 2019 at 12:03 PM James Cook <jc...@cs.berkeley.edu> wrote: > > I've just been busy, personally.
