    I will always respect the Delegate's will, I'm just saying we should not pretend we are being fully open to the options. I'm ok with whatever result

    New Theme Chatter

    From what I'm seeing, there's three main opinions: those in favor of one of the three presented themes, those in favor of a change, but not one of the themes presented, and those not in favor of a change. While it's Halo's perogative and I understand the reasoning, adding either a "Different Theme" and/or a "No Change" option would have soothed people's opinions and made them feel more included and valued. As we've seen here and other places, a community involved process doesn't mean all thousands of nations are involved, this thread alone has less than twenty different posters in it. Just because it may be a little more contentious and complicated doesn't make community involvement in decision making a bad idea. Regardless of what happens, I have faith that Halo will make it work and we'll have a successful theme, even though the one that wins won't be everyone's first choice.

    57 replies during a 5 day discussion between about 9 players is not "a discussion at lenght" nor a "most people" You have the right to do this, lets just not pretend it is a public driven thing when it isn't. I am all for making clear what is clear. You are merely taking the opinion of a few in something you already decided to go with, but there isn't any real option. Let's not fool ourselves. I do wonder, if you are so sure "most people" supports this, why didnt you take it to an in game poll, make it official, and add the no change option That would have been the fire test to your supposed massive support.

    Exciting turning point for TWP. I’m gonna vote for Japan, cause I’m a weeb I know a lot about the shogunate and it fascinates me more than the others do. The votes are really close right now!

    No, this was discussed at length here and elsewhere and most were in favor of a theme change, or at the least not opposed.

    If you are going to do this by vote, why not add the option to REMAIN as we ARE? Would that be something you will be willing to do? Seems fair to me...

    I must say this echoes what I mostly feel about it. I don't like gimmicks, as they are easy to derail and harder to maintain. We already have a laid back culture which is easy to go and learn, get used to, etc. Furthermore, the themes proposes seem forced to me... Not natural or native... I'm not a fan. I also vote for tradition tbh

    I will have a runoff among the top two. We've had a lot of participation so far! Woo hoo!

    All of the three themes are almost tied in voting right now. Hard to tell which one will come out on top at the end!

    I have only recently started to be involved in TWP so I'm not sure I feel as strongly toward the current theme as some, but I don't think there would be harm in exploring new themes using the ideas active and contributing members have come up with. I also kind of feel the theme TWP has now is very reminiscent of previous cabinets and region personalities that have long since changed their roles in this region. I think TWP has changed a lot since such members and think it'd be healthy for our theme to adapt and reflect that, showing newer members that they can be involved with the shaping and changing of this region instead of looking on it and feeling a bit disconnected from the culture of those previous cabinets. In the past I have worked alongside The West quite a bit and looked in on TWP as other regions have and I do admit I associate the theme with certain members and kind of freeze framed TWP like that. I'm not sure if other regions or players did that as well but only after joining have I seen how much it has changed since then. I think that is a little alarming and a changed theme might help others on the outside looking in see how much it's changed up in here. I do recognize some people not being thrilled about it, but what if there were a trial period for a theme? After the trial period we could reevaluate to see how everyone likes it overall and determine from there if it's a bust or not.

    I promise that whichever theme is chosen, I will take my time implementing it, using it only as a starting point to come up with something that is uniquely TWP. My thought is that I will form an implementation committee to advise me on this so that I receive a broader range of ideas. No plan will make everyone happy, but my goal will certainly be to put in place something that at least most of us can be proud of.

    In all seriousness, this is why the mere mention of Japanese culture is a bad thing on the internet. Even if it's done as a joke, things eventually deteriorate into exactly what just happened.

    Hello, this conversation has been very interesting! In the spirit of togetherness and friendship, I believe that I would like to change my vote to The Weeb Pacific. Here's a picture of Badger as an anime girl for inspiration: I think that we can all agree this is the best direction for TWP. I'm gonna go ahead and assume that we're all on board here and heavily instigate this on Discord. Can't stop me now!! Bwahahaha! >:)

    As for me... Well, to be honest, anyone of you folks who've been around me for any amount of time will know that I'm absolutely crazy about Japan. Not weeaboo crazy, just, y'know, love how they do life over there. So when I heard that you guys had a Japan option for the theme, I was like, hell yeah! Japan is such an amazing country. The food, culture, people...the list goes on and on. Even if you don't admire it you gotta admit they've got some cool staff over there. I think the main reason why is because we will have the advantage of the Japanese culture as well. Think about it. Their culture emphasizes honor and respect which goes perfectly with what were aiming for here in TWP! Also is the emphasis on the group and working as a team which can work for our raiders...I guess what I'm trying to say over here is that we would do well to learn from the Japanese and their way of life and that it would help us to be a better TWP! Also Japanese food Did I mention the food?
