OOC: I don't usually pop around these sections anymore, but do you think there's a better way to express res judicata without having to use the words res judicata in the resolution?

Alethea then gets herself a seat at the bar, and orders a glass of milk to be placed next to her. She missed her ferret friend, and hoped to see him again.

It's been a long time since Ambassador Norrland walked into the Strangers' Bar.

Same old, same old.

Both wrote more GA and SC resolutions than IA ever did. It's not really about quantity. I don't know enough about SkyDip to comment, but Douria's impact on the GA was basically ephemeral and his play style didn't leave any impact on the community. IA has had a much larger role in shaping the modern...

It seems to the Lemmingtopian Delegation that, while the information presented here certainly makes us believe the nominee's efforts should be recognised in some way, most of it is either efforts more appropriately commended on a regional level or efforts already noted through the Resolution Author...

Europe does not partake, nor vote in SC resolutions. But I do. And with that red herring, your point being? We all know this is dead on arrival in its current form either in the GA or the SC.

These types of proposals belong to the SC forum, although I'm pretty sure it's dead-on-arrival in its current format. They don't. The SC cannot take the actions which this player wants to effect anyway, i.e. using the WA to mandate his takeover of the South Pacific. On top of that, I don't even thi...

N-Day was refreshingly unintrusive and doesn’t drag you into it against your will, which makes it better by default. I think that N-Day has quite a bit to teach Z-Day in terms of mechanics, both for better and for worse. I’ll be looking to see if staff shake Z-Day up a bit (and then the opt-out may...

I'll offer my perspective: I wasn't able to get invested in the event until the last few hours. I didn't even join a faction until there was less than 12 hours in the event. As a result, I avoided most of the early conflict, and survived into the end just by not participating. In the end, I was abl...

OOC: I do not actively participate here anymore, but you might want to note that all five freedoms of the air are not automatically granted even in an IRL context.

Because CD has a history of intertwining into abortion arguments regardless of forum (be it GA or General or elsewhere), and there are more evidence about bias than not.
