The United Shops of Scratch [USS] [OPEN (50 SHOPS & 5 SUBSIDIARIES)] - Restructured

The United Shops of Scratch (USS)

“Lunctus tabernas et cooperantem.” / “United and cooperative shops.”

A RESTRUCTURE OCCURRED ON JULY 17, 2017, MEANING SOME INFORMATION HERE MAY BE INACCURATE! It will be updated to accuracy soon.

MAIN DIRECTORY

Welcome to the official discussion topic of the United Shops of Scratch (the USS), which is a large network of fifty shops, five subsidiaries, and no EASs (Externally Affiliated Shops) as of August 3, 2017. The USS offers shop assistance in endorsement, order completion, promoting, and representation.

The USS is open to partnerships, which follow the line of “if one union fails, the other has it's back.” That motto has been used in six partnerships, and four out of those six are ongoing.

We, since April 2017, have been the self-proclaimed largest shop federation since TSF, but on May 29, 2017, largest one ever on Scratch, by quantity of shops. In May 2017, there was 48 shops and more than 40 users under our democratic legislature. Now, it's expected to be around 80 users, and more than 110 is the goal by September 2017!

The USS is lead by the Head Department (acting as an Executive branch), but it is not an absolute dictatorship. The current President, -Anvard-, has an ongoing first term until December 31, 2017 at 11:59:59PM. (Their term started on August 2, 2017.)

So what are you waiting for? Learn more by clicking the links above!

Reserved

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

The History of the USS


The United Shops of Scratch is a relatively large collaborative effort hosted on Scratch, and unsurprisingly as a result, results in a lot of history. This is a compiled history of how our initial shop union became a large shop/collaboration/university collaborative work space.

Since this is incomplete, please read this short excerpt from our previous original post:

The United Shops of Scratch (better known as the USS) is a shop federation that was founded on October 27, 2016, by Austinato and monkeytrooper in hopes of organizing and promoting shop progress. Since then, the USS has became one of the most partnering and largest shop federations of Scratch.

The United Shops of Scratch initially only accepts shops, but now it accepts anything found in the Requests forum within reason (if they are not shops then they are subsidiaries, members without any representation.) Each shop earns representatives that may participate in decisions, voting, and other actions, but in court cases, justices decide upon the verdict.

The judicial aspect of the USS is technically incomplete, however it has the required three justices to have a verdict. Seven is the limit and the Head Justice must appoint two at a time to maintain an odd-number justice system.

On November 11, 2016, the USS notably promoted the first agreement, originally a merger with the Scratch Union. The Scratch Union and the United Shops of Scratch could not come up with an agreement, and it resulted in an agreemeent/partnership that lasted until the Scratch Union's closure the next month.

On January 17, 2017, an agreement was offered between the USS and the Confederacy, a shop federation once led by Sigton, which was finally approved and accepted by the Confederacy on February 3, 2017, when they changed their name to the Shop & Collaboration Confederacy.

March 2017 became an eventful month, in which on March 7, an activity sweep removed seven shops. Later, on March 12, 2017, the USS officially partnered up with the Triple S. Since March 22, 2017, the USS is the "largest [self-proclaimed] shop federation" (since TSF.) On the same day, shops received the benefit of being automatically placed in the Shop Directory.

In April 2017, two official partnerships were sealed. On April 10, 2017, the judicial department was called upon for their first court case. Within a week, their verdict was delivered. On April 28, 2017, QuantumSingularity, the USS's only secretary ever, quit Scratch. Days later, jromagnoli is selected to fill in as a permanent (not acting) replacement. ISOOC (Inter-Shop Old Order Completion) is also passed through a representative vote.

I: Start (November-December 2016)
Early Days
October 13, 2016 had marked the day that the great TSF had officially closed. This, almost immediately, caused former members to create their own individual shop federations, varying in size. Despite joining at last minute, Austinato created his idea of the USS, and brought it to experienced member monkeytrooper.

The United Shops of Scratch had been opened on this topic, on October 27, 2016 (read the linked post's date), with only Austinato's existing shop SmartShop (an indirect successor to Austinato's Art Market.) It had gained TacoCatProuductions' Magical Market and Perfection Graphics, therefore becoming the founding shops, but SmartShop closed in late November and Perfection Graphics declined in activity in 2017, causing it to be officially removed in May 2017. As a result, TacoCatProuductions' Magical Market, despite not being as active as before, is the only surviving “founding shop.”

Failed Merger
Almost immediately after the creation of the United Shops of Scratch, Austinato had pushed a proposed merger with the Scratch Union, one founded by also former TSF member Monkey_Legend, but after a near hour of debating, the merger was called off after no one could decide where the topic would be relocated to.

Both federations had decided to partner up, but not merge, therefore forming the USS's currently ongoing partnership goal of "in case either federations fail, the other shall help. In addition, the USS agrees to have the other (partnered) federation merge INTO the USS.

Slow Expansion
II: Expansion (December 2016-February 2017)
Rapid Expansion
Position Adjustments
III: Reform (March 2017-)
March 2017 Activity Update
March 2017 Position Reform
April 2017 Position Reform
The Deals
Reconstruction in Justice Department & USS BASE
IV: Growth Maximum
Limit
The United Shops of Scratch had an eventful month of June 2017. On June 2, the USS Base released it's first results, on June 15, the former watcher position was filled, June 19 saw the limit of 50 shops and five subsidiaries, and the limit of 50 shops was met on June 22.

On July 17, 2017, the United Shops of Scratch was restructured to allow simplicity to flow through. The first Presidential debate lasted July 17-24, the election 24-31, and concluding with the victory of -Anvard- on August 1, 2017. -Anvard- later took the oath and assumed the position of President officially on August 2, 2017.

From August 15-20, 2017, -Anvard- will direct an activity check across the entire USS, removing inactive users and shops over the course of the minimum of two months.

Planned
The following goals were updated on August 3, 2017, by Austinato - all of these goals are planned to be met by January 2018; 50 total shop members (which was met), 10 subsidiaries, and 20 EASs. Overall, Austinato aims for around 100 active participants of the USS.

July 17, 2017 Goal: 50 shops, 20 others, 100 representatives, 110 affiliated users.
June 19, 2017 Goal: 50 shops, 5 subsidiaries, 60 involved users, and 20 USS employees.
The USS expects, according to Austinato, more than 60 individuals under all USS shops, subsidiaries, and non-shop-aligned jobs, or 30 unique users; 40 shops under the USS in total; and the entire Justice Department filled properly (by Fall 2017.)

The United Shops of Scratch Bi-Annual Statistics Event (USS BASE) is also set to occur from June 1, 2017, to June 3, 2017, in which statistics about users, jobs, and shops under the USS are expected to be collected (like a census.) It is also scheduled to occur on January 1, 2018.

The Official Guide to Joining the United Shops of Scratch

Membership Comparison
Being a member of the United Shops of Scratch (USS) can mean a lot of different things, and here is a more specific breakdown on what shops, subsidiaries, EASs, and staff members mean.

Shops - The integral focus of the USS, but also the one that is completely filled. Shops have two representatives that may vote in the USS, bumping service, and moderation assistance. Shops may also seek assistance from other shops through partnerships or from the USS.
Subsidiaries - The secondary focus of the USS, but another filled one. Subsidiaries have one representative, and have bumping, moderation, and standard assistance.
Externally Affiliated Shops (EASs) - Coming soon is the third focus of the USS, which allows shops to be in queue to be the next new shop of the USS. EASs will have limited representation, but standard shop perks.

Staff + Hierarchy

Executive Department - Most highest department of the USS, has limited-yet-powerful rights.
  • Owners - Complete owners of the system, have every Presidential power.
  • President - Allowed to pass automatic laws, propose legislative votes, appoint individuals/accept applications, and command the other departments.
  • Vice President - May assist the President, and succeeds the President in the line of succession.
  • Secretary - Commands the judicial department and serves as the moderator of this topic.

Judicial Department - Department that settles disagreements within the USS.
  • Chief Justice - First ranked participant in any settlement case, and may appoint, fire, or alter other justices in terms of position.
  • Associate Justices (6) - Second-through-seventh ranked participants in any settlement cases.
  • Moderators - Essentially the former position of watchers, except a name change. Exchange information between this topic and the USS's shops, subsidiaries, and EASs, while moderating and bumping those topics.

Legislative Department - Department that votes on laws being passed.
  • Representatives (100) - Each shop appoints two representatives, that must be affiliated with their shop in some way. These representatives may discuss laws and propose them, or vote on them.

Membership
  • Shops - The central focus of the USS; has two representatives (representation), moderation, and promotion under the USS.
  • Subsidiaries - The secondary focus of the USS; have only one representative (representation), moderation, assistance, and promotion under the USS.
  • Externally Affiliated Shops (EASs) - Future shops that receive small representation (one representative), moderation, and slight promotion under the USS. Every month, the USS will do a EAS sweep if there are any vacancies in the shops of the United Shops of Scratch. (Read more about them later.)

Unaffiliated
Archivists, or users who collect old information inside the United Shops of Scratch, are not affiliated with any of the other departments; the membership department, judicial, or head departments. Their job does not affect any of these groups, and should not.

Archivist tasks can only be called by the Executive Department.

Please take these into consideration

MT

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to.

Alright, as for the proposed change to 2.1, I approve of. For 3.1, I approve of as well. These are reasonable and help us with moderating activity of USS shops.

If anyone opposes to these new laws, please say so immediately. If opposition goes through, we shall have an official vote.

You're able to, but just with the approval of us. Are you already in another federation, if so which one?

I officially approve of this interchange, so you have not broken a rule.

As for voting through the shop, it's a decision for all shops - not just yours. When elections occur, I was asking if all representatives participate or just simply shop owners. The only cons to representative-based votes is that representatives from the same shop may cluster up and take up most of the votes.
