[Discussion] Commend Big Bad Badger

Recommended Posts

Ahoy! Following our usual nomination period, here's the first draft of our next Regional Commendation! Participation in our discussions is strongly encouraged, so feel free to suggest anything to add or improve by commenting on this thread! 

1st Draft:

Quote

The Region of The West Pacific,

Acknowledging that Big Bad Badger (hereby referred to as Badger) has contributed to the region for several years, 

Noting that, as commander of the West Pacific Armed Forces during late 2015 to 2016 (appointed by the then Delegate Elegarth), Badger unified TWPAF after a period of confusion and uncertainty, and began the work to shape the regional military's current iteration;

Appreciating Badger's term as Delegate of the West from 2016 to 2017, in which the aforementioned:

  • spearheaded the writing of the Manners of Governance, creating the regional government as it stands today;
  • solidified the purpose of the Ministries and the Hall of Nations;
  • encouraged regional members to improve West Pacifican culture and also to showcase it abroad to other regions;

Honouring Badger's administrative positions, such as an Administrator of the regional forums and Server Owner of the regional Discord server, in which the nominee ensures safety for regional members, keeps off troublemakers from both platforms, and aids in technical problems;

Admiring the nominee's terms as Guardian of the West, during which thousands of nations were banjected from the region in a record-setting purge to remove spammers, troublemakers, and many other kinds of unwanted nations, as an effort to make the region a better place for all;

Respecting the nominee's more recent term as Ministry of World Assembly Affairs under Delegates The Holy Principality of Saint Mark (Halo) and Bran Astor, in which endorsement levels increased not only for the Delegate and Guardians but also for the general WA member population, and

Concluding that Badger's contributions were extremely important to shape the current regional government and culture, and that said contributions should be recognized;

Hereby regionally commends Big Bad Badger.

As always, discussion must take at least 72 hours. However, let's take as many time as needed to write another great regional commendation!

Looks great to me but as Dilber said, you should definitely have something about all the nations Badger launched in the purge olympics.

Here's a link to the purge counts if you need it: https://discord.com/channels/221448758213345280/221448758213345280/695135308743835719

I think we should expand a bit on the guardian section, particularly his record setting purge.

Good point! I've reworded the Guardian clause to focus on the purge and how that was important to keep our region a place free from spammers and other unwanted nations.

This is absolutely brilliantly written! It truly shows Badger's commitment and contributions to the region! I wish I could add more to this but time is a luxury for me right now and I don't want to half-ass(pardon my language) research on Badger's history in TWP. If I had time I would search for more things to add but this is still very well written and does Badger justice!

Thanks for all the comments! I'm still looking for any suggestions if people have them. Otherwise, the proposal needs to receive 2 motions before going to a vote.

I've made a few edits to the clause, however I think sticking to gerunds at the clause's start follows the rest of the commendation as well as other previous proposals.

I've applied a few of your suggestions @Lollerland, however I think some are better unchanged to better line up with previous commendations (example: "honouring BBD's multiple terms as Guardian of the West" in the last one).
Your suggestions are very appreciated though, thanks!

This reads very nicely. I think these commendations are a great way for newer nations like myself to learn about the history of TWP and those who have shaped it into what it is.
