I institute primaries to open up my elections and get this:
Diebold Election Inking Scale 86.33 → 85.25 -1.3%
Kind of quiet here.
Yep, we're not (yet) a chatty region. I myself have been out of the country most of the past month and was almost continuously occupied with my honeymoon, so I've had few opportunities to play with NS.
Congrats on your marriage!
Great recent marriages means CTEs. So it must be working out, no time for keyboard play. Better things to touch. :)
Sorry about the CTE and leaving you to the mercies of the raiders. But now I am back and the raiders are gone.
Not a problem in retrospect.
For short CTEs, it's unlikely raiders can do any lasting damage to a region, particularly a small, non-prestigious region like this. They can mess up our WFE, change our embassies, change our tags, and scrawl on the RMB (all of which these did), but they didn't have time to build up influence to set up a PW, eject members, and refound it as a trophy region. Large prominent regions sometimes have to content with multi-year strategies to insert as many WA raiders as possible, take over the WAD position, lower the PW, and invite the raiders in. Therefore, some of them have set up extensive security networks, like requiring one to be in a specific feeder region, prove one's loyalty and dependability, etc., before being admitted, and even then, some raiders inevitably get through. See Hell for a good example of this. Fortunately, as your Founder, I am not planning to go anywhere soon. The biggest threat to this region is not from raiders, but that RL will suck up all of my gaming time. That's kind of what happened previously. Thankfully, it was only temporary. Alas, NS used to be populated with a great many larger-than-life nations that made playing fun. A lot of those players eventually permanently CTEd because of RL issues.
The safest way to gain new members is to have RL (or at least LT NS) friends whom you invite to join your region. Alas, most prominent regions don't have that option.
Sorry about the CTE. I had misspelled this nation's name in my auto-update program and it failed to tell me that such a nation did not exist. But I am back and apparently no harm done.
Hello! It's been a while. Mind if I pall around here for a while?
Hello Esquire! I would love to hear a history of this fine region! Thanks!
Thank you for letting me enjoy some time here!
OK, I have changed the regional regs such that bad-faith actors (looking at YOU, Black Hawks!) cannot alter the region.
