Sorry, I've been busy dealing with my home region and doing stuff IRL, but now that my home region has more or less imploded, I will try to give more attention here.

There's a sweet spot between no posts for days/weeks at a time (horrible) and 150 posts overnight (which is where IDA was when I stopped paying attention several months ago). That level of activity is unmanageable, at least for me. I find it like trying to drink from a fire hose.

As of now, most of OG members have CTE'd, are inactive, or have moved on to other things in NS. This region was great while it lasted but I fee like it has met its conclusion. Though I still plan to finish the official history of IDA factbook.

I see no reason why we can't make a few tame, long-lasting debate polls to maintain at least a trickle of activity.

I've given you the ability to create polls. Please use it wisely.

If you know me, you know I can't do that ;)

I've created a poll (above) to commemorate the International Debating Area's tremendous legacy.

As for my response to the poll, suffice it to say that I'm not as new to NationStates as I appear; before my return from a long hiatus under an entirely new name, I was once the founder of a region that has held embassies with the IDA for quite a long time. I watched it grow, participated in many debates, and even sent a puppet or two over in that time, but it was not to last - I had to pry myself away from the game for personal reasons. A few months after I came back, I looked on the regional message board of my old region to find that you treasured it - and me - every bit as much as I treasure you and your community. Although I didn't say so at the time - couldn't, really, as I'd have been too embarrassed - I was touched. I was even more flattered to be made a Moderator here despite having no apparent connection to my previous nations. So, I hope you can comprehend just how discouraged I was to hear that you believe that the International Debating Area's best days are far behind it, and understand my insistence that this community isn't dead yet. It's left too great a legacy to be so quietly discarded - so, in honor of what you've created, I present to you this poll.

I have been here since the regions creation. After our ban from the Russian Federation. I remember all the controversies. I loved it.

In a strange way I miss Rafstord.

I couldn't agree more.

Thank You! Perhaps in the future, this region (or a related one) might rise once more... but for now, it has reached an end, however temporary it may be.

I honestly asked for an embassy in the hopes that you'd revive. I think you underestimate the interest.

REGIONAL TREATY ALLIANCE (RTA) | MINISTRY OF INTERIOR

Hello members of the International Debating Arena,
The council of the Regional Treaty Alliance have decided to broach the idea of public interest in a Parliament involving ALL member regions (Please see below) and I was wondering if you would be able to provide some feedback whether you would consider joining a large parliament. We may use our region to host the talks or we may use a discord server. All feedback is great.

Thank you for your time
Barlomia, Minister of the Interior

We've another Ethical Dilemma.

Tomorrow, your nation's team is to play in the semi-final of the World Cup. A television channel has acquired video of your two star players cavorting with prostitutes and snorting cocaine from their bodies. If the players are suspended, the team are unlikely to make it to the final. Do you suppress the video until the game is over (and risk being found out later), or do you insist the players are removed from the team now?

I said Laraniem out loud. I'm now confused.
