Bank Robbing at Ashford Bank!
Attention! You can now ROB the bank at ashford! This system is in a Trial stage really, but hopfully we can work on it and keep making it better.

Basic info: There are "gangsters" around the city hinting you at how to rob the bank, Once you find the secret tunnel to the bank vault, you need to find a way into the vault and rob it!
Once in the vault, You have to step on a pressure plate for about 15 seconds, then a secret code will pop out, You must take that code and find the "drop off" point to redeem that code for a prize!

While robbing the bank, Ashford Cops will be notified and they will try to chase you down. If you are "Arrested" (Meaning the cop gets with in 2 blocks of you and yells "You are UNDER ARREST" You will have to give up the chase and hand over your code you got.) If you make it to the drop-off, You type the code in and get a prize! Congrats you're a wanted felon now in Ashford!

RULES of bank robbing:
-the bank will only be stocked with new "loot" every few days or so. (this could change)
-If cop arrests you, and you do not comply with being arrested, that cop will report it to me, and you will be banned from robbing the bank for a week. (2nd or 3rd offences could result in a perminant ban from the bank.)
-This event will not be fun if cops and robbers do not have equal authority and it wont be fun if cops say you get arrested but you don't listen. We want this to be fun for all.

-If you are arrested you must go with the officer to the police jail, You will be held for 3 mins each time you are caught.

-More rules can be added/changed.

-If the bank robbing is heavily abused and robbers do not follow the rules, the bank vault will be shut down for a short time so people can think about their actions.


Ashford East Shore Country Club and Golf Course
The East shore country club and 9 hole golf course is finally complete! Its right off the Piers on East bay ocean. This is going to be an elite club!

[+] Memberships
-A membership runs at 2,000 Forsals, This makes you a member as long as the club stands.
-You can keep your membership as long as you stay in good standing with the community and club. (We won't tolerate being banned, trolling, or other threats to the reputation of the club)

-If your reputation is damaged the club can revoke your membership until further notice!

- A membership gives you the opportunity to play our stunning 9 hole course, hang out in the country club lounge, eat a meal in the restaurant, or host parties. You can allow 2 guests at a time to join you at the country club, as long as they are with you at all times.


[+] Dress Code
Guests are required to observe good taste and dress appropriately when visiting The East Shore Country Club at Ashford.

Ashford now has a courthouse near the central park and mcblockies.
The courthouse has offices, courtroom, office for the judge and a jail/holding area for inmates being tried.

Getting Married:
-If you want to get married to someone in Ashford legally, you can. Come to the courthouse and set a date with the judge for you and your spouse to get married. (Court will just give you papers)

-Ashford does not care who you marry, whether it be a person or llama for all we care! As long as your happy right? Just set the date and come with whoever to make it official!

*Please note that although Marriage in Ashford will make you legally married in Ashford, we can't guarantee that other cities will look at you from a legal marital status since it's not server wide yet.

Filing lawsuits:
-If you want to file a Civil lawsuit (like sue someone) you can file a request application on THIS topic and the judge (undecided as of now) will try to get in touch with the people involved in the lawsuit.

-If you want to press charges for attempted murder, violence, or robberies etc, Apply for them to be charged on THIS topic as well.

-A trial date will be set and both parties need to show up or the party that does not show will automatically lose the case. if both parties do not show up, the case will be dropped.
Each party can hire a lawyer or be their own lawyer. One will not be given if you can't afford it or don't have a lawyer.

-Please note the only cases that will be heard in Ashford court are issues that happen in Ashford city. The Ashford Court system rules by all local city rules but has no authority over HelloMiner Server rules or issues.

[+] Punishments for crimes in Ashford
If the judge/jury find you guilty, you will be sentenced to one of the following for criminal law:
-Certain amount of Community Service in Ashford
-Certain Time in Holding cells, (1 minecraft day example)
(We hope players will play along for roleplay as we won't make you do anything extreme and unfun like sitting in a cell for hours, only little amounts of time)

[+] Punishments for Civil cases
-Community Service
-Fines
(We hope players will play along for roleplay as we won't make you do anything extreme and unfun like sitting in a cell for hours, only little amounts of time)


Enjoy and this system is still under review and some tweaks might need to be made.

--------------------------------------

[+] Current plans
-Ashford Eastcove suburb area is almost complete in development and building! Only the parks, landscaping and plot rging need to happen. You can check the area right next to the airport and reserve homes. Just remember that these homes can not be modified on the outside.

-The Ashford Estates: This will be the mansion area with a golf course next to it and hopefully a country club as well. These have just started being developed and a lot of land needs to be clears for starters!


Ashford’s Small Business Program:
If you are getting a plot and have a small business or plan on making on in ashford, You can apply to be apart of ASBP. (Application in application section) If you qualify for the program you will get monthly perks from the Ashford government inlcuding : Possible Monthly payment bonuses, Monthly small business shop days, Free airplane tickets for you and customers, and free advertising. More to come as well!

Ashford Politics/Government.
I have a lot typed on the city announcement topic about this topic, Here I will explain a bit more.
Creating a party-
Citizens will be allowed to create Political Parties with any beliefs, then they can gather a following and Apply their Party to the Ashford Government.(Application in application section) If accepted, they will be eligible to elect a member from their party to run as a candidate for our presidential election. Independent candidates can also run if they get at least 6 citizens to sign a petition that they are eligible and fit to run as an independent. Political Parties that are created have seniority over independent candidates and their members will be accepted as presidential candidates before independent parties.
You must buy a plot and build a party headquarters to run in the election and have a political party approved. Independents do NOT need a HQ but do need a plot in ashford or some type of residency.


[+] Voting, presidential Term, campaigns, etc
A presidential Term is currently 3 months long. Any candidate can run as many times as they want, and they can keep being re elected in to office if they win the popular vote.

Ashford vote system will run under Popular vote, Meaning whoever has more votes wins the election, Each citizen in ashford has a weight of 1 vote. There will be a voting topic when the elections are held and will be open for 48 hours.

When the election is live, no voting fraud, cheating, buying votes, or making multiple accounts will be tolerated from any party or player. You will be removed from the race and a revote will happen if someone is caught cheating.

You will need to register to vote (Application in application section) if you want your voice to count, and you will be automatically approved if you have a plot or live in Ashford.

The Owner of Ashford will not host campaign rallies or help set up debates/primaries. If parties want to do this, feel free to help get votes for the election. Ashford does not care how you advertise and campaign during an election. (Fourm topics, in game, etc)

In addition, once elected president they will be sworn in and get to have the top office in Ashford City hall, and live in the Ashford presidential estate if they choose.
The main job of the president is to help the citizens voices be heard and try to make Ashford better. You can bring up ideas, write or draw out plans, prepose business dealings etc. Example: You want to add an eyesore rule, you write the rule up and it will either be approved or denied by the Owner of Ashford. The president can bring 3 workers with them to the presidency from their party to help with plans, ideas, work and defense.

The first election will be held shortly after parties are submitted for approval!
