1 TWO POSTS EVERY WEEK! on September 29th 2009, 20:59

Hello Asian delegates! Smile
It is now mandaratory to post at LEAST two comments every week in the forum. We are going to check the posts constantly and we want to see interesting topics and different issues being discussed with factual and inteligent answers! We are going to post a couple of interesting articles to start a couple of discussions and make everyone excited for our REAL SALMUN!!!
And please don't forget to go to the meetings on tuesday at Ms. Garrett's room! We are there to help you as much as we can, but you also need to help us! Don't come without anything prepared or else we can't help you much either.
Good luck!!

Chair: Paula Mascarenhas
Co-Chair: Milla Goldenstein

euh.. about the organization of forum how do we post?

-like last year, we create a topic for each of our country and post on ours and the others.
-we create a major topic that is about all topics at the same time.
-we create a topic per resolution (just to avoid repeating topic) and we post on it.
-we wait until futher information.
-any other ways you already decided.

can you tell which one of them it is please...
thank you Smile

There is no restriction about this Prosper! If you want, we can make a topic for each resolution as soon as we confirm them, but you can also create your own, show some helpful articles, as questions about other countries, do anything you want basically! Smile

well, thank you a lot Co-Chair Milla, i was kind of confused.
So i think i am just going to create a topic for my MUN issue, that will be the easiest way, since people already created a lot of them like this, in Europe Caucus.

Co-Chair Milla,

Do the Delegates of the Aisan Caucus recieve grades based on content of posts, or does it just depend on whether a Delegate posts twice a week?

Delegate of North Korea,
Delegates receive a grade based on completion ( 0% if did not post, 50% if one and 100% if he/she posted twice). However every week or so delegates will receive recognition (and maybe "prizes") for the best posts, these being in content! Hope it is clear to you!

Well, thank you for all information but I still have a question

-About the delegate of the week: how does the delegate of the week get chosen? It is all about posting as many posts as possible? Most useful posts? Be present on all topics? Help people out on any caucuses?

thank you for listenning.

Pakistani Delegation,

The Delegates of North Korea do very much believe that the Delegate of the Week is a random and not planned out act. I do not understand what I did to win the title last week, but apparently somethign the chairs thought was important.

If the North Korean Delegation could take a guess, we believe that it is based on all rules and statistics that Pakistan has previously listed as a series of questions.

North Korean Delegate,
Tyler Simpson

Unlike what the delegate of North Korea believes. The delegate of the week is not a random act. We chose Tyler last week because he showed commitment to posting in the forum and posting with inteligent remarks. We judge mainly by the content but all of the other factors suggested by the delegate of Pakistan are also relevant. Did you understand?

Thank you Co-Chair for clearing that up,

I was unsure why I won the title last week, but I'm now aware.

And also Co-Chair Milla

For each post we do including new information, for example, that Japan has recently posted anti-missiles to counter the possible nuclear missiles sent by North Korea, Do we always have to state the website where the information is found or do we have to wait until the concerned person or anyone ask for it?

And also; Why is there not a "delegate of the week" for each caucus instead of one for everything? since there are already a lot of delegates and we are still waiting for the delegates from other schools to register, i think it will be better if there will be more people having their names on a special topic called "delegate of the week 'October 19-26'.

This is just a little comment to improve the forum. Very Happy

Delegate of Japan, it is up to you whether you state your sources or not, the sources are usually to give more feedback about the topic you're debating, or to prove a point you've said. We are hoping you are willing to prove during the MUN debates, since delegates have already asked for souces to be presented. Also, the delegate of the week is per caucus. Each caucus has elected their own. We will probably be announcing this week's stand out tomorrow or so. Hope that helped you !

Chair Paula,

Will our sources be required on any written document in the MUN Debates? Or will they more than likely just be asked for by other Delegations.

Delegate Tyler,
I do believe that every paper you submit needs a bibliography, position papers, etc. But what I mean mostly is that during debates I have seen delegates ask for "proof" or in other words, they want to know if your source is reliable or not. So you'll probably just have to say whether it was CNN, or NYTIMES, etc.
Hope it helped!

Chair Paula
If the source is from another website as http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.html
Should we also print it, or should we say "the delegate confirms that the source is trustable"?

Thank you for the previous informations
PS: is wikipedia any good reference of proof?

Delegate of Japan,

Wikipedia is a good website to find general information, but it should not be used as an official source nor should it be cited in any formal document.

20 Posting from other caucus on November 14th 2009, 18:15

Hello,
I think it's ok, you only have to talk to your caucus leader, because they wont search your post in the asian part of the forum.

Delegate of Japan, firstly you choose whether you want your sources printed or not, you should be ready to answer where your facts are from in case someone asks... Wikipedia, during MUN, is not considered a reliable source. As the NK delegate stated, it is useful for some brief background, but shouldn't be used to prove your arguments.
Delegate of Russia, you are more than welcome to post in the Asian caucus if you're interested in the topics! You will be surely graded for your posts by your caucus leader (Bibi in this case).
Remember delegates you can still be posting on the MUN week! For those of you who had not done so many posts up until last week this will be very useful, so keep up the good work. MUN in 3 days!
