A region's embassy thread in the Gameplay forum is not the appropriate venue for discussion of Moderation matters. As such the above post has been relocated to the appropriate location.

I've got three questions:

1. Could a successor choose a new potential successor?

2. Would it be publicly known who has been chosen as the founder's potential successor?

3. In the event that the successor has CTE'd before the founder, would the line of succession die with the founder?

I think people were getting encouraged by Reppy's statement because she was inviting information about offsite harassment cases, what was missing was the fact that, alas, inviting information is not a policy change provided NS Moderation does not do anything with said information.

Props to Catalyse. That last section made me spit out my drink about three times. "Power couple, Guy and Frattastan," was amazing. As was "I assume, some good people too." I'm slightly miffed about the UDL's Rejected Renegade Squadron though. Wouldn't I be commander of the UDL's ...

I really don't get why Gameplayers would see this as a solution to the current problem being discussed.

Principally, Gameplayers who were WA Authors. Not everyone is one or the other. I do have a question related to this conversation, since I know Auralia has always been passionate about repealing GA#2. Does WALL still take the hardline protecting GA#2? (As it did under Mousebumbles.) That case helps...

Yes they did decide to do more. They specifically tried to stop GA players from using a legitimate feature of the game in order to allow these delegates a huge level of power on what content can and can't reach the ears of their residents. The simple fact of the matter is that a TG direct to voters...

I've always thought that the old "Why Amendments are Illegal?" argument was terribly, terribly silly. That post has been held up as the gold standard of Socratic logic since time immemorial, but it's paper-thin reasoning. Why not just have an amendment feature and ban amendments that would...

When WALL decides to stomp a resolution, GA players don’t have a say in that.

If you can’t imagine the ease with which alliances like WALL can ...
