  1. As a Brit, we do not cook our goose, or turkey, until Christmas!
  2. So, his goose has been cooked, then?
  3. A desert island as long as I had plenty of Pimms No 1 Cup plus accessories like a gorgeous girl!
  4. Fluent in all languages so I can tell the NSVerse "TWP is the best!"
  5. As the saying goes, the present is the key to the past.
  6. I would love to answer the poll, but I dislike both varieties of life forms! Cats eat birds and dogs are mobile pooping machines
  7. I also choose Batman because of a BBC program in the series called Only Fools and Horses where in one episode the two main characters dress up as Batman and Robin. Will never forget the scene where they run across an empty parking lot!
  8. INFJ-A Advocate I think the same as last time I took this test.
  9. Traditionally, I have always preferred the Summer Olympics but I do have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Snowboarding events with their spectacular crashes!
  10. Bran, you are undoubtedly a great choice for our next delegate. I have watched with much pleasure your enthusiasm and dedication shining through all that you do for the region and the wider NSverse over the past many months. Halo, what can I say? Your wonderfully, energetic, enterprising, and hard-working run as TWP delegate is coming to a close. It has been a sincere pleasure to have served under your tutelage. Many, many thanks for your service to the region
  11. Neither do I. In addition, I hate trying to read a quoted dispatch containing all its coding!
  12. Indeed, who is going to check that the checkers are checking for valid checks in the checkboxes?
  13. 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
  14. We look forward to a period of glorious cooperation in the field or on the high seas between our two regions!
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  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!
  23. Well, finally I have gone through the plethora of offerings from both threads. My first thought is that as a region we need to do something to get new players actually involved rather than hovering around the edges before fluttering off to do their own thing. I have to say, however, that I am not a keen fan of any of the themes presented and agree with Fujai that a great option would be to extend the Pirate theme which does not clash with TWP's past history of being a non-RL themed region. I have an abhorrence of lengthy titles for those in Ministries or positions of authority which smack of NGO titles, and believe we should keep titles short and sweet. Second, and I have a personal leaning towards Badger's thoughts of that... less is more... for the changes but would be perfectly happy for changes that the younger, and therefore the future senior players of TWP, would like to see. P.S. Suggest we combine this thread with A New Theme for The West Pacific
  24. Yes, I remember your nation, but how could I not with such a name! Welcome back, and we look forward to seeing you on the rmb!
