Fair enough then, I'll look at revising this.

Well, the biggest real life research was created by the Williams Institute, an independent group with a special interest in LGBT welfare, and their work covers a lot of different LGBT issues, with very little evidence of any right wing bias. It looks scientifically sound to me, and if anything the r...

Right - while I'm actually of the opinion that affirmative action is a good thing, I think the issue would be better if it were written with a more reasonable voice on that option.

Yeah, I don't think it needs abandoning, rather the direction of the choices need to be more in line with the decision just taken.

[DRAFT] 11 Angry, Tired, and Increasingly Confused Men

DRAFT 1: I've broken one of my own rules here, using a "redundant" second sentence in the opening. The reason here is I want to respect player autonomy, and that means not implying that the current situation is of any particular set of rules. Trying to make it so that nobody can say "...

Oh right. We embalm to slow decomposition, which allows for funerary viewing of the deceased over a longer time frame, makes storage of the deceased more hygienic, and makes the experience of dealing with the dead less viscerally unpleasant. Also, the law in many western nations requires that decomp...

Did he know he was HIV positive? I think that the issue is pretty clear on this. He knew he was HIV positive, and kept it a secret. Further, option 2, so he didn't even tell his family? Actually, family is often the last people that get told, because they're the people who we most fear being judged...

964 was a fun issue, glad you were the one to have edited that one! I'd note that choice 3 is a fringe choice though, picking up less than 10% of the respondents to that issue. I'm not entirely sure this consequence issue furthers the story much either. We've established in 964 that "bovver&quo...

Aussie has got it in one. The vagueness of the premise here makes it too hard to make a meaningful decision, and it strains verisimilitude to believe that a discussion would be brought to Leader without the context of describing what the contentious decision is. On a broader level, it also makes for...

I think the debate shows that there's an Issue there. I think a good approach might be to incorporate what Aussie is saying, but to succinctly summarise that position and make it the position of one of the options. That is "poor people are poor people no matter what colour they are, and so-call...

Do you mean people voting against their own interests?

There's possible issue ideas here, but you'd be best off trying to put these ideas onto paper yourself, Aussie, rather than expecting someone to build off an unclear suggestion.

I'm not sure. While "what funeral traditions does your nation have?" is an interesting question, it isn't necessarily something that the government needs to do something about, since unless there's some specific criticism of those practices (as the environmental concerns raised here), the...

So, I'm aware that we have VODAIS in the issues already, which is a metaphor for AIDS as it once was - a terrifying and fatal viral infection. I don't want to use VODAIS here, as you can never know what order issues will be received in. It'd make no sense to describe it as a treatable condition here...

You got a good point there. Validity wise, I could code to exclude Islam and Judaism, but it seems a shame to have western christian nations be the "default reality" for NS nations. There's a strong embalming tradition in some other nations too, such as in China, but you're right that this...

[DRAFT] Pickles in a Box

My region's eco-agenda this month is green burials (https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1254891) so I've knocked together this issue to push awareness, while trying to also make a suitably neutral issue.

You're right. A previous draft asked for bigger spaces, but I snipped that and didn't change the effect line. I'll come up with a new one.

Don't worry then, feel free to use the suggested text, and if you're okay with it, we can sort the rest out if and when it comes to edit.

The core story is the thing, we can work out most other stuff.
