New Government Appointments

~Following a shocking investigation into Taco Island Mayor Louisistan’s failure to use the official yacht as directed by the Mayor’s Private Yacht Act of 1955, Louis handed in his resignation as mayor. Chief Executive Markanite appointed Tanzoria as the new mayor, to oversee forum spam and games. Thank you, Louis, for your convivial leadership of Taco Island, and congrats Tanzoria!
~Markanite also appointed Free Las Pinas as the new President of the XKI Cards Co-op, after HumanSanity stepped down. As President, FLP will help to coordinate regional card farming efforts and direct the donation of cards to various cultural events and competitions.
~Then Secretary of State Margaux hired Porflox as XKI’s new emissary to Spiritus, Sulenia as emissary to Greater Dienstad, and Eastern New England as emissary to Deutschland.
~The new Minister of Education Free Las Pinas hired Sulenia to serve as his deputy and assist in coordinating the welcome and assistance of new members of the region.

Around the Islands

~February’s Featured Nation was Porflox, a newcomer to the islands who has already shown their talent as a recruiter, TITO Member, and the region’s new emissary to Spiritus. Congratulations Porflox, we’re excited to see where you’ll go next!
~Cultural Officer Thedairos announced the Best Flag Competition this February, where members and friends of the region could submit their flag designs via a forum thread or an on-site TG, after which Islanders voted for their favorite design. With 22 gorgeous flag designs to choose from, competition was fierce, but in the end, Grea Kriopia’s flag won the forum competition, and Megistos flag won the on-site competition. Congrats to the winners and a round of applause for all contestants for their creativity and amazing flag designing skills!
~XKI’s Forum Theme Design Competition continued throughout the month of February. Interested Islanders were given the chance to submit their own ideas for a new forum design, in hopes that their submission might be chosen as an actual theme for the regional forum. Four intrepid designers tried their hand at making a forum theme. Free Las Pinas showed an eye for pleasing pink with his Pastel Palms Theme. Pianaville lifted our spirits with their bright Beach Theme and Comfed channeled the spirit of the ocean with their Surf of the Islands Theme. Finally, Silvedania got us all ready for summer vacation with their Sand and Water Theme. The Council of Nine is currently deliberating which of these gorgeous designs to pick, so stay tuned to find out the competition winner next month!
~Perhaps prompted by the new Mayor Tanzoria, there has been a resurgence of spammy chat threads in Taco Island. Chaos reigned as Islanders debated whether or not this is a Starbucks, fired trebuchet projectiles at one another (and the mayoral mansion), and re-opened The Tanzoria Asylum for the Criminally Insane. And yes, the asylum is named after the new mayor, perhaps explaining why Taco Island has been so crazy as of late. Regardless, Islanders new and old enjoyed the excitement and got to spamming like never before!
~In celebration of The Partnership for Sovereignty, XKI, TRR, and TSP joined forces to host a trading card pull event. The event was centered around commended defenders, and participants had the chance to get S1 Improving Wordiness, Ballotonia, and Eluvatar cards. Eager to try their luck, members of all three regions spent the afternoon card farming and opening up card packs, with several participants striking gold and gaining a copy of these sought-after cards.

Islander Achievements

~Although this is a civil, rather than personal achievement, we wanted to highlight Eastern New England for all the hard work he has been doing lately as the WA Secretariat in issuing numerous WA Proposal Voting Recommendations and Overviews. With every new proposal to hit vote in the GA or SC, ENE searches through forum debate to provide Islanders with a quick, easy to understand overview of the proposal from a variety of perspectives. For political proposals, ENE goes one step further, and coordinates with delegate HumanSanity to issue a voting recommendation explaining why a vote for or against is in XKI’s regional interest. ENE’s work has provided valuable insight into the WA for many Islanders, and truly deserves a moment of special recognition for his efforts!
~Free Las Pinas also put in the work in regard to the WA this month, authoring their first-ever GA Resolution “Supporting People with Disabilities”. After months of drafting and redrafting his proposal about protecting and assisting those with physical and mental impairments, FLP submitted his proposal towards the middle of February. Following an extensive telegram campaign, the proposal reached vote and passed with a laudable 82.8% support. Congrats FLP, and best of luck in your future authorship endeavors.
~Not to be outdone, Noahs Second Country also got to work in the WA, drafting “Repeal: Commend Northern Borland”, pointing out the questionable claims of the original resolution. Although this was a controversial repeal, Noah’s hard work ensured that it would pass, with 58.9% support. Fantastic job!
~Rounding out XKI’s excellent work in the WA this month was HumanSanity. Following a raid on the passworded region The Embassy, HS quickly pushed “Liberate The Embassy” to vote in the Security Council. With broad support from many small delegates and individual nations, the resolution passed with 69.5% support. Congratulations and thank you HS!

XKI Game-Side

A regional poll by Jabberwocky asked Islanders which of a variety of movie villains would make the best parent. Most Islanders weren’t particularly impressed by any of the villains parenting skills and chastised poor Jabber for being insensitive. Those willing to disregard the problems of villain parents, however, decided that Emperor Palpatine would make the best dad.

The RMB was filled with playful banter this month:

~Another month bites the dust!
~And...and?!?!
~Kyle and his hole?
~Z-Day has come early.
~Doctor Who?
~No no, it’s cursed.
~Likely story. I want name, rank, and, Bank Balance.
~Unlimited voting Power!
~Old Folks and their lawns.
~An excellent translation!

Poet Laureate Competition

With February, came the Poet Laureate Contest. Islanders submitted poems, this time centered on the themes of courage and bravery, which were then voted upon by the region. Aersoldorf’s humorous poem, was chosen as the contest’s winner.

‘Twas long ago, both cold and dark,
The sun had slipped away,
Patrons thru my door had come,
To hide until the day.

Good food, strong drink and tales provide,
Distraction from their fear,
Yet laughing eyes can scarce disguise,
The knowledge that Death’s near.

The TITO boys were making noise,
A’boasting of past deeds,
As stronger ales make stronger tales,
They’d all been in their meads.

Kanta cleared his throat and said,
That he was bravest, true,
“While you were kicking raiders butts,
I kicked their mamas too”

Kort’s Korner did erupt in sound,
Knights spewed their drinks, guffawed,
Up through the floor came Shelter’s ghost,
The patrons silent, awed.

“I hear ye making crazy claims,
I’ve come to set you straight,
Titanica, the bravest knight,
Would use you for cut bait,

Yet even he, the noblest knight,
Was filled with doubt and dread,
When from the sand a monster plucked,
Its fearsome, fishy, head.

Halibostrichus vampiricus,
Part vampire, fish and bird,
Grub gumbo turned and ran so fast,
A sonic boom was heard,

For 80 days and nights they ran,
No respite, no time out,
When out of breath, the knight did stop,
And turn himself about,

I beg of thee my mortal foe,
A toast to death let’s chug,
But Hakke smiled and said no thanks,
I chased you for a hug.”

TITO Update - March 2021

TITO Command

Has your region been invaded, or do you want to get in touch with TITO? If so, contact one of the following nations:
~Chief Executive: Markanite
~Field Commander: Kanta Hame
~Tactical Officers: Shy Guyia, Smugglers and Mercs (TITO EF), Controlitia, Wischland, Sulenia, Flying Eagles
~Executive Officers: Hakketomat, HN67

The Update Update

TITO had plenty of mini-camping trips in March. With a total of 11 defenses, 6 liberations, 7 detags, and 1 chase run, TITO spent most of the month deep-cleaning regions of raider puppets, providing precautionary support to embassy regions, and assisting in The South Pacific’s delegate transition. This meant we spent the last couple weeks of the month switching between the same two or three regions during every update. Luckily TITO members were able to remember which puppet was in which region, which made switching a breeze and left plenty of time for update channel chatter!


Monthly Memes

TITO members had fun teasing one another this month, with plenty of playful jabs to go around.

TITO Question of the Month

We sought to resolve an age-old question in March. How is “TITO” pronounced? 19 TITO Members said it was pronounced “tee-toe”, 6 said it was pronounced “tie-toe”, and 1 said they pronounced it completely differently. Let’s get some insight from the different sides:

  • On the “tee-toe” team, Wischland said: “It just sounds better with the contrasting “ee” and “oh” sounds. Rolls off the tongue that way.”
  • Another “tee-toe”-er, Control argued: “The Spanish/Italian/etc. name Tito is pronounced "tee-toe", so I pronounce TITO the same way”
  • HN67, who says “tie-toe” said: “Just the way I first read it; probably cause I split into two distinct syllables.”
  • Finally, Kanta Hame pronounces TITO completely differently, saying "tit-oh", on the grounds that “we don’t need those pronouncement thinggies in here [Finland] since every single word is pronounced as its written and i never learned pronounce individual letters, just memorized how the word should be said”

Always nice to work with TITO.

By the way, if anyone thinks it is pronounced any way other than "tee-toe", please send me your Discord user ID so I can preemptively ban you from The League's server. Jk. Maybe.

Information about other government officials of 10000 Islands can be found here.

March Elections

Wischland was elected in a landslide delegate election, and transitioned to the role soon after announcement of victory. Meanwhile, Zaberaz Hapang secured their bid for Himes West after an uncontested campaign. Finally, Lyonnesse East saw the most activity, with both Porflox and Kohnhead running serious campaigns for the seat. After a close and exciting week of voting, Kohnhead emerged victorious. Porflox was however soon appointed to serve as Blue Canaria North after an opening for the seat appeared following Wischland's successful bid for delegate.

~The Council of Nine repealed The House Continuity and Closure Act due to its redundancy after The House Closure Requirement Reform Act was passed.

Around the Islands

~Porymonia was named featured nation for March thanks to their extremely prolific posting in A Taco Archipelago, our RP region. At more than 27,000 posts, they have posted many thousand times more than anyone else! More can be read here.

~Eastern New England has won our Extraterrestrial Encounter theme contest! You can read more about this here.

~Congratulations Silvedania on the well deserved Rookie of the Quarter awards! They have been an active poster on the RMB and discord, as well as joining TIBOE to improve regional security! Here is the full statement.

~Our forum has long been overdue for a makeover, and Free Las Pinas has sure stepped up for the job! In an very close voting, they narrowly beat out the competition, and their Pastel Palms theme will soon be the default look of our forum!

Islander Achievements

~10000 Islands's RP region A Taco Archipelago in its just under one year of existence has beaten out 10000 Islands's post count in the past 10 years (since the creation of RMB archives)!

~The Mad Surfer published its last issue this month (here) because of increased Real Life obligations and the increase in regional news bulletins which you can read more about in the article. Thank you Jabberwocky for the continued editorship and the entire staff for creating an amazing newspaper for three whole years!

XKI Game-Side

A regional poll by Jabberwocky asked Islanders what device they'd want to have. Lightsabers from star wars overwhelmingly won, mostly due to islanders having no clue about what the other ones were.

The RMB this month was filled with many insightful conversations, and some more comical ones.

~Are we mining cheese?
~April Fools! Kind of... not really

~Interesting waste disposal

TITO Update - April 2021

TITO Command

Has your region been invaded, or do you want to get in touch with TITO? If so, contact one of the following nations:
~Chief Executive: Markanite
~Field Commander: Kanta Hame
~Tactical Officers: Shy Guyia, Smugglers and Mercs (TITO EF), Controlitia, Wischland, Sulenia, Flying Eagles
~Executive Officers: Hakketomat, HN67

The Update Update

TITO saw a quieter month this April, but nonetheless stayed on their toes, ready to defend innocent regions. As the month drew to a close, our troops totaled 11 defenses, 4 liberations, 4 detags, and one chase run. There was plenty of coordination with other regions, be it through chasing and libbing regions with Libcord, fash bashes with other militaries, or assisting in delegate transitions. In fact, the last few weeks of the month saw TITO members actively supporting delegates in three different regions every update. Although there was plenty of switching to be done, TITO members were eager to put in the work and make sure regional delegacies were in the right nation’s hands!


Monthly Memes

TITO members had a blast joking around with one another in between switches this month.

TITO Interview

This April we spoke with Control, a long-time member of TITO, twice-retired member of Command, and current TITO Tactical Officer.

Wisch: When did you first join TITO, and why?
Control: I first joined TITO in 2012 because I found out that regions were getting raided and that seemed to be a good way to get involved in NS more deeply
Wisch: And since then you moved up the ranks quite a bit and are now serving as a Tactical Officer. What does that job entail?
Control: As a Tactical Officer, you're expected to provide leadership for all TITO members. That ranges from coastwatching to planning operations to mentoring TITO members to communicating with natives about potential raids.
Wisch: This is actually your third time in the position, correct? What makes you keep coming back?
Control: That's correct, and I come back for the XKI community for sure. The vibe is a terrific combination of goofy and friendly and also at this point I have a ton of old friends that it's good to see and come back to. Then, when I come back to XKI in general, it has never taken super long before the existing TITO Command go "hey you're experienced, you want to be a TO again?"
Wisch: What’s your favorite TITO mission/memory?
Control: So back in the old days, update chat was on the Proboards forum and it had a couple sound effects that command could play. One was a whipcrack, which they'd use to get our attention, and one was a meow that would signal the jump. One time Wordy, who was FC at the time, got them mixed up when we were watching two different raider groups crossing and meowed. Half of us jumped, some into their staging regions, some into random regions that they thought might be the target.
Wisch: Where do you see TITO going in the future, and what’s your part in it?
Control: I think TITO is developing into an organization that intentionally and dedicatedly communicates with natives in smaller regions and advocates for them and their needs. I hope to help in that communication and to maintain connections to many of the thriving communities that are at risk of being raided and help them defend themselves as much as possible.
Wisch: Any final comments?
Control: Anyone who'd like to get to know XKI and its people better (and isn't a raider) is always welcome to come meme with us!

On Monday, April 3rd 2021, Chief Executive Markanite of 10000 Islands announced his decision to resign from his position, and pass the torch to Hakketomat. Hakketomat is a well-known figure in the region, having served as Executive Officer in TITO, Senior Senator, and Registrar-General, among other positions. Although we are sad to see Markanite go, he has made an excellent choice for his successor and XKI is excited to welcome Hakketomat into the position of Chief Executive.

The following is the statement of resignation and conferral from Markanite:
On the 17th February 2019, I was given one of the greatest honours in 10000 Islands and was asked by Woonsocket to serve as Chief Executive. I have loved serving in this role over the last two years but now I think it is time that I pass on the role to another.

2. The Chief Executive authority of 10000 Islands shall be vested in the Founder Nation, the United States of Grub. The Chief Executive shall hold Office for life, and shall be responsible for the conferral of the Chief Executive's authority to a successor of the Chief Executive's sole choosing.

So, as per Article 2 of the XKI Constitution, I am naming Hakketomat to be the next Chief Executive of the 10000 Islands. The transition will begin today with this announcement and I will work with to bring them up to speed on all the duties of the Chief Executive over the next few weeks. I will update everyone upon completion of the transition.

The first thing we will work on is administering the elections which begin tomorrow as normal.

I'd like to thank you all for your support, help and guidance whilst I navigated the challenges of the role. I hope that I have done you all proud. Being Chief Executive is not easy, and I know I've made some mistakes however I also hope I've done some good and helped the region. 10000 Islands has an extensive and amazing history, we have endured the test of time and will continue to thrive under the new Chief Executive.

I look forward to watching how the region evolves over the next few months and years. It has been an honour and a privilege. Thank you all.

Long live the 10000 Islands! Long live TITO! Long live Hakketomat!

Mark


As the transition process begins we wish Hakketomat the best of luck and express the deepest gratitude to Markanite for his dedication and service to the region.

XKI Game-Side


The region was more or less in agreement this month on Jabberwocky's polls. Islanders decided that zoos were fine as long as they treated their animals well, and that uniforms are evil as they represent conformity.

10000 Islands' finest creative minds were at work this month, bringing along discussions on many wacky topics with them.
~ The disappearing property of lasagna
~ A stranger's last day
~ Organ donations on the rise

Meet A Nation Interview

This month, your update staff has ventured down to newly appointed Chief Executive Hakketomat's lair to ask him a few questions.

Porflox: Let's start off with how you discovered XKI. Was there a particular reason you decided to come here?

Hakke: I discovered XKI when I received a recruitment telegram. Can't say from whom, since it's disputed. Aersoldorf is very certain that he sent me one while I'm certain I got it from Cerb. I liked the telegram from XKI the best, although that's also a foggy reason since I don't really know what exactly made me choose XKI. I think I took a look at the region and its size. The mentioning of TITO also interested me. But then, I wasn't too interested in joining TITO when I first arrived

Porflox: What prompted you to start getting more active in regional affairs then?

Hakke: A change came about when non-TITO citizens of XKI were asked to take part in the Lazarus mission of 2015. I joined in and I've mainly kept to TITO until Dominion of Compassion asked me to become his deputy senator. This was a few months prior to my first successful senator running in January 2017. Markanite interested me in joining The Islands Party and helped me run for a seat on the Co9.

Porflox: How many years have you been in XKI, and is there someone in particular who helped you through your time?

Hakke: I've been in XKI for as long as I've been on NS, a bit more than 6 years. At first when I joined the forum, Ardreas was assigned as a buddy to me so he introduced me about here and there. The forum seemed overwhelming, but once I inserted myself into the culture of Taco Island I built a friendship with Aersoldorf. Aersoldorf is perhaps one of my closest friends in XKI along with Markanite and Woonsocket. Mark got me fully introduced to the political system. I worked closely with Woon when he was CE. While Aersoldorf has been close to me, I can't forget Ater Nox either. He has also helped me in getting settled in Taco Island.
That is just the civilian side of my time in XKI. In TITO, it has always been Kanta Hame who has been central. He is the first one I met when I attended update for the first time. He also was appointed Tactical Officer shortly afterwards and so, he would lead me into missions. During my time in TITO, I started eyeing up the Executive Officer position which was held by Louisistan as well as Barry. When I was appointed Executive Officer, I of course sought Louisistan's input whenever I needed some advice. Louis was my inspiration for that role. Since then, TITO Command has been the pillar of my existence in XKI and TITO. So yeah, I can't say that I have anyone in particular.

Porflox: Now that you've been appointed CE, what are some things you want to get done?

Hakke: My goals for XKI is to have silver cities and statues built in my honour! All school students will do the pledge of allegiance to both XKI and me every morning! XKI will also become a vampire haven!

Porflox:Well on that note, thanks for the interview! I'm sure XKI will flourish under your silver and vampiric oversight.

Hakke: You are very welcome!

Until next month, your XKI Update Staff is signing off!
