  1. [PASSED] Commend Alasdair I Frosticus

    Commend Alasdair I Frosticus was passed 17,331 votes to 1,613
  2. Short and to the point. This is a normal liberation for a change. Bovitt Cay is a puppet by Lenlyvit. The three unnamed raider forces are TRE, TI and USSD. Native support has been expressed in the discussion thread. Occupants have stated their plan to lock and refound the region. The basics look good. TRE's leaders have recently been declared PNG by us (and many more regions) for their egregious behaviour (see here). Them leading the occupation should be reason enough by itself to support this liberation. So unless I am missing some more political connections my advice is to vote for this proposal. discussion thread
  3. [DEFEATED] Agricultural Invasive Species Act

    "Agricultural Invasive Species Act" was defeated 11,452 votes to 8,193
  4. The author submitted this after a very short drafting period. They don't seem to be very keen on criticism. In my eyes this proposal has several flaws. First thing are the weirdly circular definitions in 1.a and 1.b. 1.c limits this to laws that require retention of all customer data making this proposal effectively useless. A law only requiring the retention of most data completely falls out of the scope of this proposal. Then there's of course the question if this is really an international issue. This would have needed much more time and frankly, the author's attitude isn't exactly destined to win many hearts. Due to its numerous technical flaws I recommend to vote against this. discussion thread
  5. Yes, really minor but still a noteworthy point. I must admit I find the whole ordeal oddly fascinating. So now Greater Cofrienolls seems to have been DEATed for repeated WA multiing if I interpret moderation's comment on their RMB correctly. Also the proposal lost a few delegates thanks to a disapproval campaign by Lenlyvit and sits at: I guess that means that it'll soon be discarded? Well, I'll wait until that happens and close the thread then. Perhaps there will be a few more minor occasions for me to get the popcorn. /edit: and it's gone, I'll close here
  6. [IN QUEUE] Commend Solorni

    Rachel (Solorni) undoubtedly has a long career in NS to look back onto (and that is still developing). Her influence on Balder is hard to overstate. I am personally not that versed in all the details of this proposal, especially things that go back a few years but even the critics in the proposal thread admit that at least the general gist of it is absolutely correct. TWP is on good terms with Balder and Europeia (as written in the proposal) and Rach is even a citizen here (unless I am mixing up something in my mind). This proposal has been in the works since 2014 (with long idle phases), Rach seems to be fine with it as far as I can tell, this will likely have the support of WALL, giving it a big headstart. The writing is fine and has obviously been refined for a long time. Unless there are some political reasons or major details I am not aware of, I see no reason to not vote for this. discussion thread
  7. If your first reaction to this was 'Who??' you are not alone. This is the second time this has been submitted. The first time the submitter openly talked on their RMB how this proposal was written by the person to be commended themselves and that they were given stamps together with the pre-written proposal for a campaign. The proposal was yanked by moderation. Only because no more evidence was found in TGs, moderation left it at that. Now the proposal has been submitted again. On their RMB they are talking about how they fear being raided by TBH, who of their friends to commend or condemn next and how they drive to school together. These really are just a bunch of clueless kids with too much money to spend on stamps. The content isn't noteworthy anyways. Of course against. discussion thread
  8. [PASSED] Repeal: “Liberate Femdom Empire”

    Repeal "Liberate Femdom Empire" was passed 16,777 votes to 2,471
  9. Eurks. Proposed by a Kaiserreich resident. The usual "We have less than zero Nazis and you forcing us to police our nonexistent Nazis would actually make you, the WA, the real Nazis" line. Holocaust jokes on Discord and RMB as well as antisemitic propaganda posters are a matter of public record. Whenever this resolution comes off the books, it should not be through a proposal by a Kaiserreich resident in which they get to paint themselves as the victims and some sort of martyrs for free speech. Nuke it from orbit, take no prisoners, salt the land - against! discussion thread
  10. [PASSED] Commend Alasdair I Frosticus

    Well, I got feedback from exactly one person: This pretty accurately mirrors how niche NS Sports is on the whole. Again, this is no reason to vote against this. All in all I'd say - if in doubt, vote for. This niche probably deserves a bit of love.
  11. Well, this is a special one. Wallenburg is an experienced GA regular. The drafting thread goes back half a year and eight main version. Yet somehow the proposal still manages to be kind of a mess. The first thing that attracts the eye is the discord between name and category. In earlier drafts this still was in the environmental category but now it is tarrifs. While those are in the proposal, a few other categories are touched too. The definition in 1. is pretty broad thus putting very few limits on what this proposal would cover. On the other hand it is really questionable if a nation has to be told by international legislation to deal with detrimental invasive species. The minimum standard for tests in 2.a. feels pretty arbitrary. 3. only references an already passed resolution (one this proposal perhaps secretly wishes it could be?). 4. again is awfully broad, as basically every species could potentially be invasive while also not being mandatory thanks to the language used ('urges'). 5. tries to establish yet another agency and outright drifts into the bizarre. Flamethrowers and Heavy Artillery in 5 b.? Why not tactical nukes? Wouldn't be that big of a leap in this proposal... If one tried to sum this proposal up into a few points it draws a weird picture: Not exactly the first approach to this problem that comes to mind. In the end this is also hardly a matter of international interest or human rights, failing my personal sniff test for a proposal. So in sum I'd recommend to vote against. discussion thread
  12. Ban on Statutory Limitations for Heinous Crimes was passed 16,701 votes to 3,659
  13. [DEFEATED] Condemn Union of Confederate Regions

    "Condemn Union of Confederate Regions" was defeated 13,163 votes to 7,042
  14. [DEQUEUED] Liberate World Assembly

    The most recent founder (a puppet of Topid) refounded the region, the proposing nation admitted to it being pointless, Tinhampton went on a deapproval campaign and after some time - poof went the proposal. Glad we don't have to waste a couple of days with this being stomped at vote.
  15. Another proposal that quickly collected approvals. Not much to say about it. The proposal clearly limits itself to crimes defined by the WA as falling under 2 a-c. The three cases seem sensible enough. I honestly can't think of a real downside. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Therefore I'd recommend to vote for the proposal. discussion thread
