A fish in the sea here from TWP

Postby Contest Fish » Sat Apr 11, 2015 8:43 am

Hello there! I am A fish in the sea, and I am joining the in-game forums for a contest in TWP. The first round of the contest already ended, so it's ok for me to post the rules of it up here:
[quote=Darkesia]*sips coffee*

The contest is open to any TWP nation who is interested. You may join the contest at any time as long as you follow the first steps.
This contest is designed to give future GamePlay stand-out players an idea of some of the skills they must be aware of to become sucessful GamePlayers and Delegates.

Older, more experienced players who wish to participate, please let the newer players take the lead and just go along for the ride.

There will be an overall winner and winners in several categories. Winners will have their names published in an announcement distributed to our allies and placed on our WFE.

Do not break game wide rules at any time during this contest. If you don't know the rules, ask.
You may ask any player for advice in IRC. You may telegram any player for advice. Try to keep RMB discussion to a minimum.

At the end of the contest we will have a Q&A session with several experienced players and the contestants.

*pours second cup and sips*

The Contest begins now

Step 1 : Make a puppet nation with your known name and the word contest either in the puppet name or the motto. Make a new one, don't use an old one. Move the puppet to TWP. Change the flag to that of TWP. Apply to join the WA, but do not accept the invitation. Send one telegram identifying yourself to the following three nations : Myself, BBD and your own Main TWP nation.

Remember, you can ask any player for help or advice.
This announcement will be repeated throughout the day and posted on the forum.

Good luck![/quote]

So that's why I came here. I will not disclose the next part of the rules until it is finished.

Well, I'm here for the contest too. It's actually becoming useful--I didn't know we had an in-game forum embassy.

TWP is withdrawing its embassy? Will we see an official statement soon? How big would its seal be? Will it made of chocolate?

News From TWP

Most TWP Dispatches here in the past consisted mainly of news updates: things that have happened in TWP since the last dispath. However, with the creation of a new regional newspaper, Dass Nachrichten, this now falls under the purvue of United RussoAsia, Deputy Advocate of Media. Thus this is probably the last dispatch in this format you'll be seeing. Even future foreign affairs updates may be published in the DN. If, though, you can't wait until the first issue of Dass Nachrichten comes out on the 12th (subscribe on our forums!), here are the latest happenings to tide you over.

  • Darkesia has been continuously reminding everyone that she wishes to step down soon, and has begun transitioning, announcing new guardians,
  • A conventional convention has been held, and a new constitution adopted,
  • New officers have been elected (see above) and many old, abandoned offices brought back to life,
  • And a fan fiction festival is being organized.

Of course, much more detail could be given, and activity has been non-stop on the RMB and the forum, but this is the main, more political news.

Foreign Policy Update
As the new Deputy Advocate of Foreign Affairs, I have taken over TWP's long dormant Foreign Affairs office. I recently shoveled out enough dust and cobwebs to be able to sit down at my desk; however, much work remains before the mise-à-jour can be completed. Many forum embassies in other regions' forums will need to be reopened, old threads in our own forums sorted through, and treaties reinstated. Ambassadors are once again being received in TWP's forums, but it has so far been quiet.
Because it is impossible to deal with every region individually and at once, a broad declaration of our policy will have to do for the moment. However, I believe that this policy, although generalized and not specific to our relations with any one region, is indeed applicable to almost every individual case. This is because TWP is not aligned with any large group in game-play, but is considered unique, independent, isolated, even irrelevant. Whether negative or positive, this "outside looking in" position gives us an exclusive view of the relations of the other regions, both with each other, and with us.
The common groups in game-play are often listed as raider/defender/imperialist/independent. TWP is not a part of any group, and the word "independent" already being taken, we must describe ourselves as "unaligned." While we certainly do have treaties and alliances with other regions, these are made in such a way not to tie us down to the ideals of others. There are those who would construe this negatively, describing or position in relation to the rest of the game as an unfortunate consequence of our internal policies, notably the separation of our in-game government from our forum government. Nonetheless, not only are the effects positive--we have the envied position of being able to control our own affairs without offending anyone--but they are not entirely caused by a manifestation of our internal policy. While internal policy certainly plays a part, any perceived irrelevancy is due to a lack of activity in our foreign affairs ministry for half a year or more.
This inactivity is coming to an end now. TWP's forum government will be reaching out, expressing its goodwill, affirming that of others, and building ties with their governments. As described earlier, our non-alignment will allow us to reach out to a wide variety of regions, regardless of their R/D status and interact with them. We will be able to reach out to all forms of government and perhaps write treaties with them, so long as they recognize our self-determination and unique commitment to an in-game delegacy unfettered by outside forces, whether that be our forum, or other regions.

Come see us at embassy row! Or just drop by and chat on our RMB!

You need to read again, it seems. We speak on behalf of the off-site government, a separate entity than the in-game delegacy.

Besides that, is getting old that democracy regions think everyone should be like them. Is just the same thing that nazi, imperialistic, totalitarian and anarchic regions do as well... :rofl:

But in a feeder, the Delegacy is the most important position in the region.

The West Pacific seems to me to be the Pacific's less hated cousin.

The Rejected Realms is a more democratic region then the West Pacific. Unibot is an elected WA Delegate.

And, really, you think I'm Unibot's puppet?
