  1. Had already voted against There has been a big swing from "For" to "Against" over the last 24 hours!
  2. Indeed, who is going to check that the checkers are checking for valid checks in the checkboxes?
  3. Well, I am most sincerely humbled at the honour... My record as an ardent supporter of all things about The West Pacific is not nearly as long as many other stalwarts of the region, but I have always tried my best to become involved in as many aspects of the region's affairs as possible. I will wear the Order with great pride. Westwind, I thank you for your sage advice and guidance during what was for me at times a rather difficult birth into the West Pacific
  4. If the statement at the end said “... replacement legislation is being drafted...” rather than just being “confident that replacement...” I would be much happier with this GA. Some legislation in this area is better than none at all. I hope the author is right about replacement legislation.
  5. This is a 'trash' Resolution which needs to given the heave-ho treatment followed by being crushed by a road-roller!
  6. Which ever way Winnie wants this to go is okay by me... PayPal seems to be the easiest route to follow as many players probably already have an account. Well, at least I do! Do we know what sort of level of funding, apart from annual fees that is needed? Was thinking about costs for developing/enhancing/repairing features? We used to have a great feature in Vortex which allowed us to see which nations we had not endorsed and vice versa. This excellent facility fell by the wayside, but maybe that was a different feature from the forum?
  7. I would certainly be happy to provide a contribution to the running costs of the forum. The total sum is little compared to many of my monthly 'PC-related' costs so would be glad to contribute so that the total parts are four. As Winnie is the actual original 'owner', how does he feel about this proposal? Maybe Winnie, and Eli would prefer to keep things as they are? Has an approach been made to them? Just seen Dark's post... are we looking at a NEW forum as a possibility as well? It would take some real work to set it up and I'm not sure we need to or want to veer away from 'our' tried and trusted current forum format that has served us so well for so many years.
  8. Rom 101 for this I'm afraid as there has been virtually no thought put into the idea and as a result there is no substance to the Resolution.
  9. I see that the vote is about even on the matter... is it politic for The North Pacific delegate to vote “For” on the issue or just see how the NSverse votes? There is an interesting pattern for the “For” vote which is heavily stacked by individual nations... many/most North Pacific nations?
  10. The problem now for Halo is that the majority of TWP nations seem to be voting "For" so a decision to vote "Against" might be problematic. Maybe a 'forgot' to vote might be the diplomatic solution?
  11. Interesting that the Proposer of the Commendation now resides in the The Rejected Realms! Personally, I agree with Halo... there is nothing really outstanding in the write-up and even though we are allies, personally, I would vote "Against"
  12. The SC Resolution is nothing but c**p and there should be filter system to remove such trash from the game before it gets to the wider NS audience.
  13. I feel that it is based on an incorrect premise that nations feel that e-cigarettes are allowed in the first place. For my nation they would be illegal so I have to vote against this GA Proposal.
  14. Agree with you, and have already given it the thumbs down
  15. In my view a rubbish Resolution that will get its just desserts! "Against"
  16. Yes, I did vote accordingly, however, I think we are not going to win this vote!
  17. But, but, for the formal record the score is still a tie! No problem, just happy we can move to the next phase.
  18. Maybe a runoff for the runoff? Oh dear, “Curiouser and curiouser!” Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).”
  19. I am greatly saddened by where this is heading... it sounds like "It's my way or the by-way" with no option for the greatest percentage of TWP players to get a say, even if it were an advisory one. Obviously, the residents have had the option to become involved in this forum but we all know that this has not happened in the past and was never going to happen this time either so the outcome has been determined by the votes of about 31 players out of many times that possible number. It is incredulous that in an attempt to increase interest and participation we are rejecting a ploy that would have certainly achieved that objective! The result might well have been the same as the forum vote, anyway
  20. So after all the toing and froing is there going to be a Regional Poll set up along the lines suggested, or not? A simple "Yes" or "No" will suffice, Halo.
  21. I agree that interest in the theme change has been more than for all other subjects that have come up for debate in recent times, which is great news. The numbers still do not, in my opinion, come anywhere near to a mandate from the player community at large. By denying them a say, even if it is an advisory one, seems to me to be overly restrictive and may result in feelings of having been ridden roughshod and ignored. It is understood that much work has been done by yourself and the proponents of the shortlisted themes, and that by going to the populace may seem be be against your personal wishes/judgement. However, I fail to see what the cogent argument(s) for not doing so is/are. Of course, the final path ahead is your's to chart, but if I were a player and knew that a theme change was in the offing I would love, nay expect, to be at least asked my views. After all, without the players, what is the region's raison d'etre?
  22. I can see absolutely no reason why we cannot present these options, plus others, to the TWP players as a Regional Poll. It would give a much wider set of opinions and might even come up with some new options. In addition, it would make the players feel much more involved and that they 'own' what is happening. It is understood that there might be some attempts at rigging the vote by outside influences, but this issue can be easily sidestepped by clearly stating that we are only allowing nations who have been in the region prior to 1 Feb 2019, or maybe 1 Jan 2019, to vote and to make the poll as an advisory, but meaningful, one to the Delegate. Sorting out the false 'claims' from the probable few hundred voters might be time consuming but still worth the effort. Just out of interest, is it possible to delete a vote from the list by the poll originator so this might be another way of cleaning the pollsters out who are not eligible? Suggest Options: Russia, China, Japan, Pirate, No Change, Other- state on rmb with case argued. Options randomly placed in the selection list, of course!
