That's fair. To continue to beat that drum, though, kind of proves that it was just OOC/meta stuff dictating the changes, not some vast political debate.

Yes. Any attempt to introduce peacekeeping was met with resistance from the rules, even prior to the Kryo decision. The WA Army rule was always held as including peacekeeping by both regulars and moderators when the discussion came up. *shrug* This is just going to come down to us acting out Monty P...

In that case, would it be better to have the issue such that you're the country getting bombed, or you're the country bombing?

I think the latter is less godmodish. I can already hear the complaints about an issue that assumes Player's own country is under bombardment.

Another annoying question.

I'm guessing the "international transfer hub" spreadsheet linked earlier in this thread is no longer in use or active?

OOC: Resolutions that are recommendations and not mandates are not useless. If you are going to argue they are not strong enough, however, the logic of the argument requires that you have a stronger mandate drafted, which you intend on passing once the repeal passes. Otherwise, your repeal would be ...

Hardly bizarre, the Discard of the Rights and Duties was a major flashpoint that hurt the credibility of the moderation team in relation to the GA. Discussions quickly arose about replacing the WA Moderation team with a player-led initiative and discussions related to a new ruleset popped up after ...

I recall a very strong generational clash between the UNOG/AO faction of the WA and the Eastern Islands of Dharma authors. Most of Dharma's legislators were IntFed - and very fiercely liberal - so we were advocating for a WA that was well integrated and more liberal internationalist, more along the...

The other divide that helped the NatSovs back in the day is that a lot of the more NatSov-oriented players were just better at understanding the UN as a game construct and writing proposals that, on a technical level, didn't suck. Back in the day the proposal list was usually at least a dozen pages...
