Good work by those involved! Hope to see the NPA keep up the good momentum they've shown.

We were kind of lucky we did this during the broken update, since detagging is the only viable type of operation to do when you have that kind of lag.

If this was a detagging operation, then I'm Alessandra Ambrosio. Zero Zero Zero Zero's WFE has been changed to "Welcome to zero zero zero zero," which comes nowhere near the region's WFE after it was refounded last year:
THE PACIFICS TYRANNY OVER OUR GLORIOUS REGION HAS ENDED! ALL ARE FREE!

0 IS ALL 0 IS THE FUTURE. 0 IS THE PAST. 0 IS THE PRESENT
OUR EMBASSY EMPIRE WILL EXPAND

I WILL CONDUCT MORE SCIENTIFIC POLLS!!!


Similarly, The Empire of Oppression's (my first ever region) WFE has been changed to a monstrocity that technically cannot be reproduced here and which in no way resembles its WFE before it got tagged by KAISERREICH last month, as presented below:
Founded over six years ago, The Empire of Oppression is a region with a long, storied history. It is now the people of the modern eras turn to rebuild this Empire into glory! A culture of intelligent, strong nations!

    👑 Join or establish a political club! Effect the government and hold public offices
    👑 Help in the founding of our Imperial Military!
    👑 Gain titles of nobility for your dedication!




Endorse the Lord Protectors Blackwood Order and Embriland. Long Live the Empire!


Aredita's WFE is now "Welcome to Aredita!" rather than its pre-tag state from last month:
Welcome To Aredita! (That's AIR-UH-DEE-TUH)
Home of magnificent madness, a touch of democracy, and a bit of spunk!

☞Join the WA!
☞Endorse everyone!
☞Want an embassy? Please read our embassy policy


Lyonesse's WFE now reads "Welcome to lyonesse," rather than "Lyonesse is a beautiful, sprawling region with many different types of environments for nations to grow in. All who are willing to work with one another in harmony are welcome to join."

Incredibly, League's WFE has not been changed at all. Some regions have had their WFEs to their oldest state as per the Grey Wardens' WFE archive; among these regions were Beans, which has had its WFE from 2018 restored despite only being refounded in 2020.

There have been some successes but these are substantially outweighed by the failures aforementioned (and unenumerated, for reasons of space and because it's half past one in the morning and I don't want to get any tireder from researching this sort of stuff).

The hills you find to die on get more impressive each time you do this, Tin. Regardless, great OP as usual from the NPA and thanks to all the orgs that showed up ~ having that many people on for detags is quite the sight to see :)

Noted, going forward I will just make all of them "n/a" since that is all I am obliged to do to remove a tag. Try to do something nice and restore these regions the best we can and still get bashed for it smh. Anyhow, good job on the op NPA and thank you to everyone who joined us for coming out and dealing with the update.

Quite clearly the regions were not restored as best as you could, as Tinhampton's post illustrates.

Setting the WFE to "Welcome to [region]" isn't any more effort than "n/a", is it? I won't even comment on The Empire of Oppression.

I mean, it does point out an interesting potential distinction between "de-tags" being just the removal of the raider-branding graffiti, and "restorations" not only removing the graffiti but also repainting everything back to the original appearance. In this specific case, the regions were definitely de-tagged in that regard, but not restored to original condition.

Considering that there's a presumed lack of sufficient natives to care, given the lack of a sufficient number to reset it themselves, what precisely a region that'll be principally used as a tag target has a WFE is not something I think really matters.

I don't disagree. Once again, I only have issues with the wording used, not the operation itself.

There's generally an accepted rule of thumb that regions lacking active natives tend to get the "Welcome to X" treatment oftentimes, especially if the old factbook is something that's been kept around for years on a dead region.

Sometimes we miss on that call, but not often. Ultimately, you're making a mountain out of a molehill here Tin.

If this is the biggest complaint you can come up with for this particular operation, I would consider it to be a rousing success. Also while I'm at it, I'd love to see CCD sometime try to do some detags - or any update activity for that matter - "the right way" sometime to show the rest of us who apparently aren't doing them correctly.

It was just delegate bumping - no changes made as the delegates are non-executive.

Inter-Regional Chat

The North Pacific is excited to join the formation of the Inter-Regional Chat (IRC) and the opening of the server which can be joined here. The IRC is an interregional organization created by a number of our allies and friends to establish a Discord server for interregional affairs and creating common ground. Since the opening of the server, we have seen a rapid growth of members, reaching over 100 members within hours of the server becoming public! We encourage any regions interested in joining to reach out to the Chair of the IRC, Peeps.
Apparently simultaneously a Ravenclaw puppet, a NPO plant, and a Warden spy. I had no idea I was that good. Depending on who you ask, my aliases include Krulltopia.
