  7. Sixth Annual World Fair Starts with President Rach Giving a Riveting Opening Address By Writinglegend; Edited for distribution by Izzy (Europeia – December 15, 2017) – The Sixth Annual World Fair, hosted by Europeia for the NationStates community, began earlier today. The theme of the fair this year is 'World of Tomorrow', and focuses on safety and security within the NationStates community. Prominent lectures on the topic have been prepared, including 'Signs of Emotional or Psychologically Abusive Behavior' by Rigel on December 15th, 'Safe Social Relationships in Online Communities' by Escade on December 17th, 'Maintaining the Roleplay/Admin Divide' by Malashaan on December 18th, and 'Tackling Sexual Harassment in NationStates' by North East Somerset (NES) on December 18th. "This year, our theme is the future of NationStates," President Rach stated in a public, official welcome to kick-start the World Fair. "It is about how we can keep and expand the opportunities to make new friends while being safe doing so."The World Fair gives an opportunity to bring the NationStates community under one banner to initiate dialogue on a given subject. Europeia is taking advantage of this by discussing the issue of security in NationStates. Communication on the issue of safety and security in NationStates will be critical this World Fair, and a Forum Administrators Conference on the issue of NationStates safety has already been planned for the event. "It is easy to forget how isolated our communities and the admins of those communities can be from each other," President Rach noted. "Improving communication is key [to] being more proactive and making our communities even more safe."Over fifty booths have been established for this year's World Fair, undoubtedly showing the width of Europeia's audience for this sixth iteration. This gives the Europeian community an opportune time to showcase its culture and what makes us unique as a whole. At a bird's-eye viewpoint, the World Fair is a cultural event to build unity within the large NationStates community. Through attracting a hefty audience, the community can come together to showcase the regions they have built and the communities they have served. Undoubtedly, this is what has made the World Fair such a special event in NationStates."I would like to personally thank the committee for allowing Europeia the privilege and responsibility of hosting the NS World Fair," Rach said in her official welcome for the fair. "The opportunity to help run and do our part has led me to love the World Fair and respect all the demanding work that all individuals and regions put into it."Europeia won the right to host the World Fair through a bid developed by the Ministry of Culture and Minister Drexlore. This will be the first time that Europeia has ran the World Fair. You can view the World Fair here, Europeia's regional booth here, and Rach's official welcome to the Fair here. The Europeian Broadcasting Corporation (EBC) will be providing ongoing coverage of this year's Fair.

  13. Foreign Affairs Update - December 2017

    Thank you for the update!
  14. The Government of the West Pacific: Delegate: Davelands Guardians: Neenee, Saint Mark, Mediobogdum, Rigels Light, Bran Astor Speaker: Overthinkers MoFA: Saint Mark Commander of TWPAF: Altincredible MoIA: Rigels Light MoWAA: States of Glory MoR&C: Big Bad BadgerElections! Place your bets! In the month of November, voters tuned in to watch the latest election cycle. Due to the activities surrounding Z-Day and the change in Delegate, the Speaker elections were actually a month late, despite the First Amendment to the Manners, which offset the Speaker and Ministerial elections by one month. Nevertheless, former Speaker Drall opened the Speaker nominations on November 6, and two candidates emerged, then-Sergeant-at-Arms Overthinkers and Marilyn Manson. Soon the ballot boxes were open and Overthinkers won in a landslide victory of 18-1. The first thing on his agenda was to open the Ministerial Elections. The elected Minister positions include the Minister of World Assembly Affairs, Minister of Internal Affairs, and Minister of Recruitment and Citizenry. States of Glory was re-elected Minister of World Assembly Affairs, gathering 20 votes. Rigel (AKA Rigel's Light) received 21 votes, re-electing her for Minister of Internal Affairs, and Big Bad Badger, our immediate past Delegate, won his bid for Minister of Recruitment and Citizenry, gathering 22 votes. After the Ministerial elections, the Speaker opened up the final round of voting, for the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Sergeant-at-Arms. These positions were hotly contested and saw some intense campaigning. In the end, Atlae was re-elected as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Laururana was elected as Sergeant-at-Arms, filling Overthinkers' vacant spot. What the new government will bring has yet to be seen, but we hope it will continue TWP's trend toward increased activity! Yo ho ho, the Pirates are here! TWPAF continues raiding and taking chocolate to hoard in our massive vaults, but now it has a shipload of new conscripts ... er ... buccaneers! YARRRR!! Our gentlemen/lady raiders, paid their respects to our nice "friends" in the Iron Order, sending them a birthday present for their region! Our crew also made new friends, especially in a region called Balloons. Here's TWPAF Commander Altino on the situation. "Once upon a time, TWPAF raided a cute little region called Balloons. The natives were happy and friendly, and so good hearted Pirates stepped in and helped them do a little redecorating. The decorations were nice, and the natives liked the flag, but they didn't want to have pirates all over their WFE, so they changed it all back and begged the Pirates to just tell them why they looted and plundered all over NS like they did. Normally, the Pirates would have just shrugged off the question and set sail to their next target, but these natives were kind enough to leave the Pirates with RO in their region, so we could change their WFE again! In gratitude, Pirates wrote back and explained that they were only here to help. Hopefully the natives are glad for our reply!" In other news, The West Pacific hosted a Halloween raid contest, where other regions such as the North Pacific, the East Pacific, et al. came to compete! We had a lot of very fun and creative flags and WFEs submitted for the contest from our fellow raiders and defenders alike. Everyone who played won a fun "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" badge made by our very own Bran Astor! Read more here: https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?p=32799550#p32799550 There are some exciting new Internal Affairs initiatives! Bran, the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs in TWP, is cooking up something special for the West Pacific! Mmm ... smells delicious! He is putting together a cookbook of recipes contributed by players all across NS! Another new initiative introduced under Rigel’s term by our Internal Affairs Minister herself was the emergence of Weekly Writings, of which two have been completed: "Healer of a Different Sort," and "Spooky Story Contest," the latter of which was displayed in The West Pacifican, vol. 7. Lastly, the poll suggestion thread was opened, leaving the space for polls wide open to prospective citizens wanting to see their questions answered.Ball with Spiritus! On November 30, TWP Ambassador to Spiritus Calradia announced something special - a Ball between Spiritus and the West Pacific! The Ball will take place on December 12, from 6-11 PM Central Standard Time. The event details are forthcoming. This will be an opportunity to strengthen good relations between the two regions.

  19. Stand/Nominate for Mayor - December 2017

    Okay, I'll stand.
  20. Stand/Nominate for Mayor - December 2017

    Someone better run. In 2006, no one wanted to run for President. So I ran and voided the Constitution. Thus began The Schism that saved our region from inactivity and CTE. Don't make me do it again. I nominate @tarricoe
  21. Stand/Nominate for Mayor - December 2017

    I nominate @Lord Ravenclaw.
  22. I will be administering this election in the absence of the Town Moderator and World Assembly Delegate, as I will not be running for re-election and therefore am eligible to serve as an administrator. This quarter's Mayoral Election is now ready to begin. The term for whomever is elected will last until March. Standing and nominations will be open for 4 days, followed by a 3 day vote. If you are nominated by someone else, you must publicly accept here to be listed on the ballot. Edit: The standing/nomination period has been extended for another 4 days. Polls are now set to open on 12/9 and end on 12/12.
