As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Alright, so later this month I will be participating in the Model UN that takes place at McGill university. My problem is I have never before participated in model un, and since I was abroad last semester I missed all the preparatory meetings at my college. My assignment is in the UN Development Program representing an NGO. And I am completely lost as to what I'm supposed to do. I have the procedure pages printed out from the website and am kind of scared to look through it, but I am going to start memorizing all that tomorrow. A week from Saturday we're having a meeting at my school to share research and go over position papers. As of yet I have done no research and still don't have the password for the website, so can't work on my position paper yet.
What can anyone tell me about the Model UN experience? What should my research be focused on? What are some guidelines for a position paper?
Basically any advice to help keep me from freaking out. Thanks.
