The East Pacific - Statement on Wonder Woman's Departure

Regarding The Departure of Wonder Woman




Earlier today, former Chief Minister and present Arbiter Wonder Woman announced their resignation and departure from The East Pacific citing "RL issues". That statement is less than accurate, and the record needs to be set straight.


The individual known in The East Pacific as Wonder Woman I, and more casually across most of Gameplay as Wonder Woman, has over the past 48 hours been uncovered as an undeclared alias used by the player Crystalsummer. This was first noticed by The Grey Wardens, where Crystalsummer had recently returned to active duty, when Wonder Woman's World Assembly nation resigned suspiciously close to the WA admission of one of Crystalsummer's nations. The information was relayed shortly after to The East Pacific, where our own further investigation confirmed through forum-based userdata that Crystalsummer and Wonder Woman were beyond a reasonable doubt the same individual.

To eliminate any further question regarding the conclusion that was reached, Crystalsummer confessed to indeed being the player masquerading as Wonder Woman. Allied governments may reach out to Fedele for evidence of that confession.

4/19/2019, 12:36:08 PM EDT: Crystal J Summer was admitted to the World Assembly.
4/19/2019, 12:35:53 PM EDT: Crystal J Summer applied to join the World Assembly.
4/19/2019, 12:35:06 PM EDT: Mysterious Wonder resigned from the World Assembly.


The East Pacific encourages our friends and allies to express caution when dealing with Crystalsummer moving forward, and is hopeful that others will similarly condemn what appears to be a dangerous infiltration attempt upon our shores.

He will not be welcome in The East Pacific again.

Sincerely,

Tim Stark
TEP Minister of Integration

Who is Crystalsummer though and why do I care beyond people pretending to be a new person?

Dear Nationstates, and the gaming community,

My name is Crystalaummer. I am the founder of The Free Nations Region. I have a huge confession to make. I went by the name Wonder Woman, and Mysterious Wonder. While I am not proud to admit this, I want to say I did not commit any malicious behavior. Wonder Woman was created back in August of 2017. Originally created as a role playing nation, it became even more when I got involved with the TEP community.
I played 2 nations and I kept them separate. I went completely inactive in my Crystalsummer identity, when I became Wonder Woman.
All my actions were exclusively in-character, not out-of-character. I did not make any OOC friends, I did not catfish anyone. I put 100% effort into my time in TEP. When I was the Minister of Immigration, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and an Arbiter, I did not try to coup the region. I worked all my extra time to benefit the TEP community, and give back to a region that gave me so much. On April 19, 2019, I decided that I would hide no longer. While I disappointed a lot of people, I want to say I am truly sorry for hiding who I really was. I have informed TEP and apologized for doing this, and I was told to quietly resign as a citizen of TEP or they will make this whole thing public. The fact that they allowed me to quietly resign as TEP citizen, without making this whole thing public, is because they did not deem me as an OOC threat. Because I am not. I did not make any OOC friends using Wonder Woman, I only vaguely alluded to being a college student studying Chemistry (which I am!)

I never catfished, or committed any malicious activity. I played the character and left it at that.
And Wonder Woman is a female Superhero from Marvel named Wonder Woman. I never said I was a girl in real life, but even if I said that, I don’t catfish, look for boyfriend, or anything shady. I NEVER befriended the same person with 2 identities (WonderWoman and Crystalsummer) to manipulate them. So no one was OOC manipulated by me.I did not join a region as a citizen using both WW and Crystalsummer.
I tried keeping both nation identities as separate as possible. For example, I used WonderWoman exclusively for regions. I never got citizenship for both WW and CrystalSummer in any 1 region.
The only “bad” OOC thing I have done, is play NS as a girl, but, in my opinion, GENDER does not matter. I never sought out boys or catfished boys.
I played as a Marvel Female Superhero, and acted entirely in-character, I didn’t commit malicious activity. I played the character and left it at that.
So please do not believe any OOC-related smear campaigns. Many people have infiltrated GCRs using a 2nd identity (some of them using female identities,) to try to coup that GCR. They got forgiven, without their reputations OOC ruined. I want you guys to know, I infiltrated a GCR using a 2nd identity, but I did not do anything malicious. I did not even plan to coup that GCR, nor did I want to. I earned my ranks ethically, and legitimately. The ONLY reason I used a 2nd identity to join that GCR, TEP, was because I was worried that my reputation was destroyed, because Defenders banned me from their Libcord Discord Server for hanging out with Raiders. I thought everyone hated me because of the Libcord-ban scenario, and I wanted to get involved in TEP but was afraid with my broken reputation, I’d be unable to do anything. I now understand that I was wrong, because I could have gotten the same ranks and positions, with my Crystalsummer identity. Now I understand that, it did not matter anywhere, that I had a bad reputation with Defenders for associating with Raiders, because TEP and other regions won’t care.
I apologize for my foolish mistake, and hope you forgive me, and accept me as both the Crystalsummer and WonderWoman nations. I mean no harm and I didn’t hurt anyone, since I didn’t make OOC friends using my other Wonder Woman account, I just did in-character government stuff. My last thing is this, I do want to thank all of the friends that I did make in SP, and TEP! Thank you for the opportunity I did have, and I want to say again I am sorry about I did. Please forgive me, and I hope someday I’ll be accepted in the community.

Thank you for your attention!

Can you give me any reasons why, aside from failing to state an alternate identity, Crystalsummer was a threat? Not accusing TEP of anything, just genuinely curious since I don't know them that well.

And you did precisely that.

But 2 days later?

I see this thread show up by none other than from TEP.

This is why I don't trust NSers.

Umm...

Isn't Wonder Woman from DC?

So TEP tells them to quietly resign, then blasts them for quietly resigning?

If Crystalsummer has logs, they should share how TEP told them to resign. Were they instructed to keep their departure hush-hush?

And if there isn't some OOC baggage we don't know about, this is hilariously the silliest thing. Getting booted for saying lying on certain required things is one thing, but making a deal out of it is just absurd.

Please tell me there's some baggage, or is this some overreaction?

I have no OOC baggage.
Many NationStates player have infiltrated GCRs, by using a girl account, in attempts Coup that GCR. But me, I put my 100% effort into helping TEP, like a normal player."

You were banned from South Pacific for attempting to coup the rightful government of the region. After this, you came to our region under an assumed identity to assume control. You betrayed the trust of everyone in our region and invalidated our entire government.

This cannot and will not be forgiven.

Now you force me to pick up the pieces after having many conversations with you stating exactly how much I wanted to avoid that

The implication of those instructions is TEP didn't want you to go public with your identity. They can't be serious with this "the record needs to be set straight" stuff. You were following their instructions.

Just TEP under Fedele being TEP under Fedele. I'm not sure why anyone is surprised.

People take this game too seriously. This is a video game, it's fine.

Crystalsummer might be ashamed of his actions as Crystalsummer, and that's a horrible thing to have in a game. Some people want to make peace with that, and hiding your identity is the easiest and most simplistic way. Wonder Woman was a beneficial addition to The East Pacific, and, despite what Tim might feel, there's no evidence that Crystalsummer was attempting to undermine the established government.

Reminds me of Les Miserable, in which:
Jean Valjean tries to hide his identity as a convict so he can get work and be successful and happy. He wanted peace from his past.


I can see why TEP might not want him back, but let's not be mean, or bar him from other regions where he wouldn't pose a threat for this. Let's give him a second chance, and not make him regret being honest with us by making this.

Edit: whoops, my main's Bormiar.

While I personally can't be sure about Crystalsummer's intentions with the Wonder Woman nation, it seems though he followed the instruction to quietly resign? It doesn't seem the TEP followed up on their end of the bargain here.

I don't like how Tim was trying to act threatening towards this person. This is just a game, my goodness...

Exactly.
