  1. Today
  2. Such an interesting thread! I love having our own local historian here in TWP. Although most historians aren't also important historical figures...
  3. Yesterday
  4. Hmmm...... There's a form of ingame participation that has not been tried to my knowledge...."Sign This Pinned Dispatch Petition by clicking the Up arrrow" It's a small action, but people want something to do. Or pin two dispatches...competing proposals......"The dispatch that gets the most upvotes by Karaoke Friday will become regional policy" Just keep engaging with the players wherever you can.
  5. If anyone would like to know more of the history of The Crimson Order, there is a thread in TRR in progress since no one has ever asked me about it before. I'm revealing tales of Crimson that have never been shared before. https://rejectedrealms.com/viewtopic.php?f=79&p=10023755#top
  6. Last week
  7. @Jerusalem, your citizenship is approved. Welcome!
  8. I like the idea of a statement of principle, but I'm not sure that having TWPers sign on to it would really add anything. I'm not against that, though. Let's hear what others have to say. Even if we don't do this, @Reçueçn, I applaud you for raising this issue. I do agree that even just having the discussion has improved how we interact with new players on our RMB. It will be even better when we launch the Gameside Advocate program ... probably right after Easter.
  9. I thought the RMB discussion was really good, and I don't know if it's just me, or if it seems like our RMB is doing a bit better the last couple days. I think talking about this has made me personally more aware of how I interact with it and with the other people on it. Westwind's also definitely right in that it's important to include everyone in these sort of discussions, and it was nice that using the RMB allowed people even from different regions to weigh in. (I didn't mean to be exclusive when I started a topic in the Hall, my bad.) I don't feel, though, that just talking about it has really resolved the issue. I don't want to monopolize the conversation, or drag this on if people feel it's not worth their time, but I do want this dialogue to move forward and arrive somewhere. Just talking about it and saying "yeah we should do something" might make us individually a bit more mindful for a little bit, but that wears off awfully quickly. As Dali has said, legislation isn't the answer. We don't need more rules. But I think what's attractive about that is that if we voted on something, the symbolism of a collective agreement would make it more meaningful. So here's another idea from me before I just let this drop. What if we drafted a statement--not strict guidelines, not rules--just a declaration of the kind of behavior we'd like to see on our RMB. We'd talk about where we've come from as a region, what it is that makes TWP unique, and talk about the RMB culture that that's created and that we'd like it to create. We can put our values--order, respect, merit, snark, second chances--and say something about who we'd like to be. Then, to make it truly true-to-TWP love of game-side authority, as well as making it more inclusive and representative, we can put it in a dispatch, have a poll on the WFE, and have people sign it through the poll like you might a petition. The names of all the signatories can be added to the dispatch. This was just one idea I thought of while brainstorming last night. Thoughts?
  10. @Westwind, I agree that this should be open to non-citizens too. I'll begin a discussion about this on the RMB. :-)
  11. Since I can't comment in the Hall of Nations, I'll comment here.... Activity creates more Activity. Yes. Spend your time where the new players are it. In game, not offsite. I notice many important players are not active ingame. They rarely post on the RMB. It seems to me there is more interest in Discord than NS itself. It doesn't matter if my perception is true or not, but if it's true for a 15 year player like me, what do you think confused new players ingame think? Inviting new players to Discord and Forums is good, but don't ignore NS itself. That's the primary reason we are all here. Have your general conversations on the RMB, it'll keep it active and encourage new players to participate. THEN they'll be ready for offsite venues. When I was a new player, it wasn't the forums or chatrooms that engaged me to participate, it was the telegrams I received ingame, and the commentary on the RMB. Talking and planning is great, but accomplishes nothing without action. Action is the only means to Progress. Again, folks need to pay attention to the region itself ingame. The game is not Discord, it's NationStates. Engage with the Game itself. Frequently. This was the point of the Crimson Order eleven years ago, to bring activity back to an inactive game environment. Yes, it was very distressing to pop in and see that. I've never seen a proper explanation, and every time I've asked, I've been ignored. I notice the silences. They are loud and concerning. How but including us non-citizen residents and moving the discussion out of the Hall?
  12. I recently received a telegram from their leader. Having seen my condemnation, they seem to think I am of like mind. I have not responded as I don't have time to decide if I should be offended or not. the Joke Condemnation is hee-fricken-larious!
  13. I’ve actually got some additions to make to this based on some more rank stupidity from CoCD. Will try and get it done this week.
  14. Earlier
  15. @Plomesious, your citizenship is approved. Welcome to full participation in The West (Best) Pacific!
  16. Welcome, Zander! Our best regards to your excellent region!
  17. Greetings to the people of The West Pacific. I am Zander Cerebella, the newly appointed ambassador from Europeia to The West Pacific. Nice to meet you!
  18. I, Plomesious, swear that I have, to the best of my knowledge, been completely truthful in applying for citizenship in The West Pacific and that I have no other NationStates identity that has not been made known in this application. I swear my allegiance to The West Pacific and its citizens, and I swear not to engage in hostilities against The West Pacific or to violate The Manners of Governance, the constitution of The West Pacific, or any laws made pursuant to that constitution
  19. I, Kobraland, swear that I have, to the best of my knowledge, been completely truthful in applying for citizenship in The West Pacific and that I have no other NationStates identity that has not been made known in this application. I swear my allegiance to The West Pacific and its citizens, and I swear not to engage in hostilities against The West Pacific or to violate The Manners of Governance, the constitution of The West Pacific, or any laws made pursuant to that constitution.
  20. Mandate that Rehab be a part of it, perhaps?
  21. How "could" this legislation interfere with individual National Healthcare?
  22. Hey guys, we have a new resolution in the General Assembly chamber. My recommendation for this one is AGAINST as this resolution would conflict with many nations' healthcare policies and judicial ordinances that are currently in effect. Furthermore, this resolution is rather a bit all over the place in terms of the powers it grants to the WA as some clauses are extremely intrusive while others are rather more loose or broad in application. As always, feel free to debate and voice your opinions below!
