[PASSED] Commend Xoriet

Commend Xoriet

Category: Commendation | Nominee: Xoriet | Proposed by: Escade


The Security Council:

Acknowledging the estimable impact that Xoriet, a power house nation and mentor, has had on the NationStates community over six years;

Recognizing the nation’s crucial role in shaping the East Pacific, as their former WA Delegate and member, by:
  • Aiding in developing and promoting activity in the region, through all branches of government; over a lengthy time period;
  • Enhancing the region's foreign affairs including providing guidance on treaties with TNP, Osiris, and Taijitu and forging unofficial relations across the ideological spectrum;
  • Building and gaining positive international prestige for the region and setting the region on a course that resounds positively today;

Appreciating the nation's leadership skills in leading the Eastern Pacific Sovereign Army (EPSA) to its golden age and making it one of the preeminent militaries of its time, which included such tasks as:
  • Capturing Nazi Europa in 2014 in unison with 11 other organizations;
  • Defending the European Union in 2014 from a joint raid by TBH, TBR, UIAF;
  • Cooperating with every major feeder and sinker military in 2014;
  • Hitting 100 detags per week during that time period;
  • Growing EPSA membership to a high of 20 military members;
  • Helping organize the 60 nations needed to liberate Anne Frank from the fascist occupiers in December 2014;
  • And successfully completing 315 individual operations between March 2014 and April 2015;

Observing that the nation has produced a veritable library of material on a variety of scholarly topics including safety, security, writing, politics amongst others that have been well received at international conventions such as the NationStates World Fair (NSWF);

Respecting the efforts made by Xorietian philosophers in writing and publishing well-received guides on how nations may better interact;

Lauding their role in leading the way in establishing guidelines for a safer NS community through the recognition and prevention of abuse as well as how to escape from it;

Believing that puppet nations of Xoriet have always striven to engage in military action with the utmost integrity and that the nation has had an important impact on the military dynamic as a leader: for example, in addition to leadership and intelligence roles, the nation was the most active among nations in the restoration of regions damaged by raids to their former state during the summer of 2014 and reached several such milestones over their military career.

Remarking that the military capability of the nation Anera, a nation under the control of Xoriet, resulted in the revival of Lone Wolves United so it reached a high of 70 ops and 22 members;

Impressed that the nation has estimable intel knowledge and intelligence networks and is responsible for being a power broker in international relations as well as training and mentoring new power brokers;

Honoring the nation's leadership, innovations, and Xoriet's role as an invaluable mentor to prominent nations, including several WA Delegates and founders, and their ability to develop connections and maintain relationships between nations and regions;

Hereby commends Xoriet.

Co-authored with Kuriko, Ramaeus, and Severisen.

It's...okay? But it's missing a lot of information, which indicates a lack of research.

There are also several errors and inaccuracies in it.

Hmm....well, I hope not to the second thing since it was looked at by a few people but there's probably things we can edit or add on? You can post here or DM me - as you wish. :)

How do I rephrase roleplay to mean roleplay but be in-game specific?

Thanks to Ramaeus for helping make it more solid. :clap:

I also changed roleplay (after wracking my brain to think how to describe it and going some funny avenues lol) to writing. I suppose we could also describe it as "political simulation writing."

This. A lot of the rules were added after the first 10 or 20 proposals were passed. Due to that, the earlier proposals contain a lot of things that are considered illegal now.

While the information put into the proposal thus far is good, I think that the proposal could do with a little more meat on its bones. I'm certain that Xoriet has done more positive things which would make for good inclusions in the proposal, and such would increase the chances of passage.

"by aiding in developing activity in the region over a lengthy time period, promoting the region's foreign affairs, and setting the region on a course that resounds positively today"

How did they do these things? Getting into a bit more specifics is good, atm it's largely fluff

Perhaps the EPSA, TBH and LWU could contribute significant contributions of her's to their organizations that you can add to the proposal. I did a lot of defending with Xoriet in the fall of 2014, so that's where I'd look for her EPSA accolades.

Xoriet is worth consideration for a Commendation, but as others have noted, the current proposal is mostly fluff.

Nitpicking here, but the demonym is Xorietian, not Xorietan, at least according to the nation page.

No, there's an actual 5,000 character limit on both GA and SC proposals. She's more than half-way to it right now, but she has plenty of room to add more. If it was a few months ago, under the old 3,000 character limit, she'd be unable to add much more but as is a lot more can be added. Spaces and bbcode count towards that limit as well, so if you find yourself tight on room eliminate bbcode first.

I'm a little picky about this but...

Commending the nation's leadership, innovations, and Xoriet's role as an invaluable mentor to prominent nations, including several WA Delegates and founders, and their ability to develop connections and maintain relationships between nations and regions;

Hereby commends Xoriet.

I'd rather "Commending" be changed to an appropriate synonym in the last premise. Honoring, maybe?

Also, full support... obviously. ;)

The use of the term "R/D" is probably okay, but it feels a little iffy to me. This is not a ruling, but that gave me pause. Will need to check in with others about that.

I feel like in order to really use R/D, you'd have to have a clause that explains what it stands for within the proposal.
