2013 in review

As part of the United Nations tradition, I will post this.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,300 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Well…

I suppose CPUN is R.I.P.. Dee came back for awhile, and we did some stuff. Though, we’ll never be the same without so many of the good people. It is simply the wrong time for CPUN, and I hate to admit it. But, we all gotta move on. So here officially ends the reign of CPUN.

Reconstrucing our Philosophy

DEE EDIT: I call green 😆 . Everyone please welcome the United Revolution to the CPUN. It is lead by soraxfirework or you can all call her Sora. Welcome! 😀

Sky Edit: I call Red-Edit Color. I will be redesigning CPUN, so stay tuned.

Soccer793 edit: I call navy blue!

Greetings everyone, Dee here.

Yes. I have considered a reshuffling of the CPUN Board. Actually, I want to recruit new people into the board we already have. Those who are still around – Soccer, Sky, state your names – will stay if they want to. As of right now I’m guessing we still have a few news reporters around. If you are a news reporter of this website please raise your hand.

So yes, I don’t think this will be a traditional reconstructing of the board. There might not be any elections and there will be no registering/applying for a job yet. Feel free to comment if you think you have any ideas or suggestions. For the meantime, I will scout the CP Army World for potential candidates of certain positions. There is no particular requirement regarding ranks and reputations in the board that I want to build here. Recruitment of big names to the board is something we have ventured into doing in the past and of which we experienced great days but has proved to be difficult. Commitment is an issue. Big names have played a part in the CPUN board in the past but, understandably, they had a hard time dedicating their time to the CPUN obviously because of their larger duties in the army side of their world. This has resulted in inactivity and inconsistency in the management of the CPUN. In the past, big name army leaders have come to take up roles in the CPUN admirably and have shown great dedication in their contributions to our community. The CPUN Board understood their restrictions in becoming leaders here and we will always commend them for the great things they did for us in their little time.

As Soccer stated a while back, 2010 was one of our greatest years. After Order 67, were went under a period of confusion, and then later we experienced an era of great success. The events that occured during Order 67 was great commercially for the CPUN and for the CP World as well. The newfound appreciation for all things non-powerhungry and new brought forward advances in other departments of the CP Army world. News websites, alliances benefited a lot and most of all – small armies. More space was given for coverage of small army activity and finally, an audience began to gather in this part of the news section of CP news sites around the world. A new generation of CPUN leaders came about to replace the old: Jedimaster17, Ktman2, Itachi6Dark, Benu2 who lead the CPUN with me all went on to become RPF, ACP, and UMA legends. This new generation consisted of more established people however thanks to the CP World that was now becoming more open than ever to things they would’ve once upon a time deemed inferior. However, most of these people – established or not – are now nowhere to be seen.

I would like to change that.

We have been in decline for the past couple of years and it is only thanks to Sky, Soccer, and those of you reading this that the CPUN is still up and has not been shattered to pieces. They have done well in preserving the vision of this community. I am promoting our Prime Minister – Soccer793 to Secretary General. I will also take up the position alongside him and the current Secretary General and Global Defenders leader Wyoskyguy. I have set new goals for us a community and I believe the vision I have in my head right now will bring forth better days. I will explain this further in a while.

We hope you stick around. Stay tuned.

If you guys haven’t already, please read Keith’s post on armies changing. It gets you thinking.

A Boost

Greetings everyone. It’s Dee here. I know I’ve been coming in and out – I have yet to make a post of what has happened to me in the past two years but that will come later. Let’s say a part of the reason I disappeared and have struggled to return is realizing my value in the CP Community. For years, I worked with countless numbers of people to bring back the great days of the CPUN to no avail. Great friends and fellow workers – Wyoskyguy, Soccer, and all those who are still here today keeping the site up – they have succeeded in keeping the true CPUN spirit alive. Thank you for being the UN’s faithful guardians. Relevancy is what I have struggled to attain in the CP World. It is what the CPUN has struggled to attain. But like I said, all will be explained when I finally have the strength to make a full post again. But why am I here now? I will tell you, that my dear friend Bluesockwa2 of the CPA Central has offered me a chance to become an author at the CPAC. As of now, I don’t know exactly what it is I’m going to be writing about but it has given me a great boost. What I have been hinted to write about is something that brings me so much joy. They want me to write something inspirational. I think this chance might help me get back on track with everything I’ve been missing and the many things I have left go. We shall soon see. The world may need us afterall. Anyone can contact me via Twitter or e-mail. I will be online regularly now. Sky, anyone, try to find me! 😉

Hey CPUN! Long time, hasn’t it? How long has it been? 3 months? Looks about right, damn, time flies. Anyways~ This isn’t a return, just a howdy. I’ve approved all the comments, re-added Fido.

Dj, you commented along the lines of The CPUN needs new, active leadership that actually bother to help it’s members. :/ Damn straight. However, without Dee as Head. Hell, even ATM, CPUN won’t be returning. That’s that. I’d rather see this be a memorial site where people can see history. CPUN had a great, long run – but now is not the time for CPUN~ If you wish to contact me, my email is MrWyoskyguy@gmail.com . Shoot me an email, however, CPUN won’t be coming back. I’m proud of everything we did, impressed as hell. But all good thing must come to an end, and CPUN’s end was 3 months ago, when I decided to just leave without any notice. Yep, ass-move right there, but that’s besides the point.

Let’s talk about CPUN as a memorial site ~ I will be creating a database with a link to a bunch of important events, posts, etc. I’ll be hopefully updating the post as often as possible as I come across more events. Comment if you want to see certain posts linked.

We had a hell of a run, now lets not forget CPUN and look all to SMAC and CPAC. CPUN had the least-biased news of the three, just because we didn’t hire willy-nilly. However, thats besides the point.

Also- Any author/editor/admin that wishes to post something that is not an advertisement, feel free to do so. Use CPUN, want to get some peer review before posting a post to CPAC or SMAC? Post it on here, and we’ll look through it and give our opinions. :3

CPUN General Assembly

February 17th, 2013

We discussed the meaning of CPUN – What is CPUN? Were a community-alliance that is the voice for the voiceless. We act as a guardian for those who aren’t strong enough – We won’t help in battles, but we will help in arguements between armies.

We decided we will do news, because there are people like myself who hate SMAC and CPAC – So we’ll be doing news for those, so we’ll be recruiting for that soon!

Luc brought up the idea that CPUN should become the new council, as the Council is headed by Tap and has bias towards GT. My proof is the case where they attempted to remove Water and Pain from armies – but it didn’t pass because Tap and his bias towards GT, Pain is a former leader of GT. Then Jack brought up each army should have an ambassador – not the leader, an owner rank that is dedicated to the army. Each army must make 15 or more in an event OR be alive for more then four months gets an ambassador on chat. For every ambassador that does not come to two meetings in a row – that ambassador will be replaced by another one selected by the leader.

Ah – A Slight Return

Hey CPUN – Sky here. Wow. What a month – I’ve been busy with Global Defenders and Assault Force, haven’t had time to post on CPUN. Sad, I know. Let’s see – recent updates… Molly and Eco have returned- Welcome Back. It would appear that we need a General Assembly – And I’m terribly sorry for the short notice, but hopefully we’ll still have a good turnout.
