    RE: GORD

    For days I have been ruminating on the legislation sent to me concerning Gord. On this date, 11/25/2021, I've received your mixed-vote petition, and have come to a decision concerning Gord. Gord is hereby pardoned for all crimes in the West Pacific, and shall be set free. Unfortunately, it turns out that we don't have any sort of treaties with the entity known as "Canada", and he has not been pardoned for his crimes of being delicious there. Also, it turns out their petition date was like a month ago and I'm pretty sure his goose has been cooked. Rest assured, your delegate is doing everything in his power to repatriate his delicious remains, preferably by about 4 PM today. Dilber, Platypus Delegate of the West.

  2. Here today, we usher in a new reign. It’s a bittersweet moment for me, as I have supremely enjoyed my time as Delegate. When I entered the chair, I knew that I had big shoes to try to fill. I came in with detailed plans, but my only goal was this: When I was done, would the region be even better? I’d like to think we’ve hit that goal. We’ve accomplished so much over the past 14 months, from FA changes to launching a radio station to public high minds and cyberbullying a man named Jimmy so much we now own a shawarma shack. We’ve become a force in the Security Council, with multiple passing resolutions even with attempts to stomp them. Our newspaper is the premier newspaper in NS, putting out quality content on-time for multiple years. Our FA position is incredibly strong, with new friendships that have sprung up while old friendships remained solid. Our military is strong and active, and is on an upwards trend. We’ve come together to do so much: We’ve raised hundreds of dollars for charity, won N-Day in the most convincing fashion ever, exterminated all the dang zombies, and have continued to be the strongest community in Nationstates. People in the past have referred to us as a retirement home, but when I look out at the newer players all I see is the future. We have the best young bench of talent in Nationstates, and I don’t see that changing. The last 14 months have been an interesting time for all of us, but I want to thank all of you for growing alongside me. In the last 14 months, I’ve changed jobs, dealt with personal issues, and most importantly sold a child to other regions for Pope Hope cards. While I have not completed my personal goal of owning every single pope hope card, I want to say that I appreciate our community always being there for each other, whether it be voice chats, game streams, or yelling at me about crabs. And now, my time as delegate is over. I slip back into the shadows of the mere Prime Minister-in-Exile-in-Residence, once again a poster child for democracy. Gio is going to do an amazing job, and I hope he does so well people go “who was Dilber?” (but actually not that good because boy would I feel bad about that question). Most importantly, this community will remain strong. We’ve all been here for varying amounts of time, but gosh dangit we’re family. Thank you all for making this a wonderful delegacy for me, and for supporting Gio in whatever the future holds. There are too many of you for me to thank individually, so I’d just like to say this: You all are what made us great. I could not have achieved everything we’ve done on my own. You’ve filled in my weaknesses, and made us brilliant. Keep it up, because it’s what we all deserve as a region. Have no fear, I’m not going anywhere. I’m not even sure I can get off my couch right now anyways Dilber P.S. The real reason I stepped down is so Vara can message OTHER people at 3 AM. (He can still message me I guess though, he’s cool) (Edited because ALON and Tera noticed the spelling error I put in to see who was reading it closely and they got the dilber's choice award for it)

  3. Hello everyone! I am Giovanniland, 51st Delegate of the West Pacific, and today I will deliver an opening speech just like my predecessor. Firstly, I would like to thank @Dilber for the time and effort he has put into the region for his 14 months of delegacy. Dilber's reign has been the longest in the history of the West, and during it we saw numerous new initiatives that have benefited our region in multiple spheres of NationStates. I am thankful that he has chosen me as the next Delegate of the West, and am happy to announce that Dilber will continue to serve as a Guardian and advisor to our region. Talking about Guardians, I also have another announcement to make: @Saint Mark (Halo) will return to the team as well, so congratulations to both Dilber and Halo for their new positions! Here I will also announce some other major changes in our regional leadership. As @Fuentana has already led the Ministry of Foreign Affairs together with myself during Dilber's delegacy, I am pleased to announce that he will now assume the full duties of this position. Fuentana has done a great job so far in advancing this key part of the region, and I am confident that this will extend to my delegacy. Furthermore, @Fujai will return as the main editor of The Western Post after my leadership for most of 2021, and I believe our regional newspaper will continue to flourish just like when Fujai previously oversaw it. Now, I would like to talk about some of my plans for the West Pacific. In the World Assembly, I wish to increase our activity both internally and externally. Internally, this means there will be campaigns to encourage not only endorsements for myself and the Guardians, but also cross-endorsing between the other WA member nations in our region, as this is often one of the first steps for new nations to get more involved in our community. Externally, I wish to continue our increasing presence in resolution authorship and interregional cooperation, especially in the Security Council, as our region has seen great progress in that area during 2021. Promoting this part of the game within the region and getting other people interested in writing resolutions is one of my goals. In regards to Foreign Affairs, one of the big achievements of Dilber's delegacy was to greatly expand our Foreign Affairs horizons, and I wish to continue this legacy. A working relationship with another region means to actively collaborate with them in many ways; exchanging active ambassadors, holding cultural events, cooperating on World Assembly and military affairs, and many more. So this will be one of my key points to ensure that the West Pacific continues to have active ties with the current regions we have diplomatic relations with, as well as working on newer ones if opportunities arise. Meanwhile, our Hall of Nations has seen great reforms spearheaded by Dilber, especially on the field of transparency, and events such as government Q&As and community cabinet meetings will continue to happen under my delegacy. There will also be another election cycle taking place from January 10th to 19th to elect a Speaker and Guardian of the Hall of Nations for the next 3 months. Last but not least, the Regional Guides keep their mission to foster gameside involvement through welcoming new nations and hosting the daily Today in the West activities, while the Cultural Trust and its many communities will also continue promoting our culture to the entire region: Roleplay Community, Card Club, News Group, West Pacific Gaming, Fine Arts Society, and The West on The Waves have all achieved many things recently and deserve not only a spotlight, but also encouragement to reach even more goals. On a closing note, as I highlight many of our recent regional achievements and outline future plans, I also leave my thanks to everyone that has contributed in any way to the region: the community is what turns the West Pacific into the Best Pacific. And for the residents looking to start their NationStates journey, I invite them to look at some of the great opportunities our region has to offer. I look forward to leading the West Pacific and its community, and I am open to any suggestions or ideas. Giovanniland, Delegate of The West Pacific

  4. Updated for both of those users. @Fuentana was not in the Hall of Nations as a secondary group so I just left them in the Members group and Newspaper group. Sorry it took me so long to get to the forum upgrade, but I wasn't sure how well it would take to the new skin...aside from the header it looks fairly functional.
