    -Title: Starting Salary

    -Type of Motion: Creation

    - Elaboration & Reasoning: I have been playing for a while now and have realized that over half of the new players that come onto the server, leave because they cannot pass the exams. We tell them to look at job guides but most of the time, that doesn't seem to help either. Most likely because they have not played on the server for very long.I propose that we give new players a "starting salary." A starting salary could be something so that players get a certain amount of money every 15 minutes, kind of like a government job as soon as they join the server (this is obviously only for new players), that is temporary, maybe 2 weeks or so. The starting amount could be decreased to possibly 200. In that time, the player can learn about the server and have a higher chance of passing the exam.

    - Additional Information: I am open to suggestions. :) Thanks!

    I agree with the beginning part of your motion, as almost every new player leaves because they cannot pass a/some exams. When new players join, they already have a starting amount of money, k400. Allowing them to get some krunas per minute could lose the need for non-government paid/no jobs in total for their beginning journey. They should spend their money wisely in the beginning instead of laying around (most likely) getting paid while doing nothing, and that's not what we need. It could spread laziness, and not many newcomers would want to get jobs and such, and when the time for the free money stops, they mind as well would just leave.

    I kind of went off of my experience as a new player since you don't really have anything and you run out of food really quickly. Personally, most of my money was spent on food and exams, and I could barely afford both. It is also very difficult to get a job to make money if you did not pass any of the exams. I just feel that a temporary starting salary would help pay for things like medical situations, food, and exam fees, while the player learns more about the server and can pass the exam.

    Sounds like welfare, doesnt seem like a valuable investment of government money. It'd be almost tantamount to increasing the starting balance. If you'd like to do something like this I would probably just lower the starting balance to something like 200 and then allow government pay for 1 week at k40/hour

    Possibly. A salary is better than a starting amount because a salary would allow them to spend on exams and needs. A 400 starting amount however, is a bit of money that will be spent quickly without a source of income.

    I like the idea of income rather than a starting balance because it rewards them for playing longer, but I don't think they should rely on it

    That's why it is temporary, and it should be known that it is temporary so they can't take advantage of it.
