I am not sure who Sedge is, but when Devonitians was the delegacy. I didn't have but maybe 5 endorsements. The only reason I even started trying to get endorsements was because the delegate said that's what we should be doing. Also the idea that I could have more influence over WA issues was appealing to me.

Lying about me is however not very nice.

Yes, my point is we actually listen to the view of the WAs in the region a little bit, which is more than any other community I've ever been a part of, including every other feeder.


Funny, The only reply I ever got was silence..........

and what about the other nations not in the WA? Are they not important? They don't count?

Actually it was Devonitians, who explained to me, that there was more to this game than answering issues, and voting in the WA.

Yes indeed. Sedge of course was Devonitians, so would no doubt be saying such a thing.

Well yeah, I do tend to encourage people to get involved in the game :) Anyhow, new update:

Update No. 8, June 2011

Officer Changes

Since the previous update, the government of the Rejected Realms has seen several changes, both in personnel and duties. As was mentioned in the last one, Earth22 had challenged for the position vacated by Unibot. She was successfully elected, and has taken charge of mobilisation and internal affairs. Earth has done a significant amount of work since being elected, telegramming several hundred nations in the region to get them engaged in the community, and involved in the forums. She has been abroad for a couple of weeks with limited internet access, but will be back home (and back to work!) soon.

Biyah later resigned his Officer position, with Guy contesting the vacant position, and being elected. Guy has taken on the Foreign Affairs brief from Sedge, who has now moved to Administrative Affairs. However, RL has intervened, and Guy is currently on a leave of absence, with Sedge temporarily covering for Foreign Affairs. Late addition: Guy resigned from his position, leading Aurora to challenge for the vacancy. Guy then bizarrely returned and announced he would be challenging for the vacancy he just created.

Dalimbar has also resigned his Officer position, and departed the region. His former deputy, Oliver Dion, ran uncontested for this position, and is likely to take over Dali's old brief with a slight modification to become "Media and Entertainment".

The South Pacific and Devonitians
Written by Naivetry
As most of you know, we have recently released a statement on the identity of Devonitians, which has been posted in embassies. The fall-out from the coup, the revelation that Sedge was Devonitians, and the manner of Biyah and Dali revealing this, have dominated our attention for the last month, with over 200 posts on those topics either in public or in the private citizens' area. Several of our citizens have also been active in discussions abroad - e.g. in The South Pacific, in 10000 Islands (1), in 10000 Islands (2), and on the official forums in the revelation thread, in our embassy, and in discussions around an opinion piece by Oliver.

Meanwhile, we have been happy to greet visitors from TSP such as LadyRebels, Topid/Daynor, and Belschaft (now also a TRR citizen) on our forums. During the recent unendorsement campaign run by puppet nations to overthrow Daynor, we quickly noticed that the "evidence" (poorly-faked screenshots) of electoral corruption in TSP had been manufactured. Naivetry visited TRR's old embassy in TSP to continue positive dialog between our regions, as well as to clarify our disapproval of the puppeteer and offer TRR's assistance. While the ejection of Californiaaaaaa was regrettable, it was also necessary, and we have been happy to note that TSP has been calmer but still active since.

Citizens

The Rejected Realms currently has 48 citizens, a stunning achievement considering the state of the region last year. This growth in active members has shown no signs of slowing down recently.

There has been some controversy over Biyah's resignation of citizenship, and subsequent re-application. No decision has been taken at the moment on this application, which has led to discussion on putting a time-limit on the mandatory security checks that applicants undergo.

Former citizen Secretary of Ni departed the region after challenging for the Officer position vacated by Guy. When questioned why he had registered on the forum with a throwaway email address, didn't have a WA nation, and hadn't logged into NS nation since being founded and moving straight to TRR, he departed in a not-at-all suspicious way.

Founderless Regions Alliance

The Rejected Realms recently pushed for the impeachment of Unibot, the former Arch Chancellor of the FRA. Whilst this measure failed, he subsequently resigned due to the loss of confidence in him from Assembly members and his Cabinet. Another issue we have had with the FRA, the "Rogue Delegate Policy" has been resolved by the FRA Assembly changing its policy on feeder and sinker affairs. We look forward to continuing to enjoy the benefits of FRA membership.

Rejected Realms Army re-started

The RRA was temporarily shut down for a couple of months earlier in the year, due to a lack of activity. However, it has now been re-started under Commanders Guy and Wopruthien, with the latter also heading up the RRA Intel Department. The RRA has already been out defending regions across NationStates from the threat of invasion.

IRC Stuff

For once, our quotes are not lewd:
[17:49] <@Nai|Linux> and we've got some intimidatingly good players in TRR.
[17:53] <@sedge> scary is something we do well :P
[18:21] <@Nai|Linux> ^ that should be our motto or something. :P
[18:21] <sedge> go add that to the irc quotes thread :P


Other News

  • Anur-Sanur decided not to appeal the removal of his citizenship.
  • We have re-opened our embassy with Warzone Airspace, and accepted an embassy request from Imperial Clindean Order. 10000 Islands and Wysteria have closed their embassies with us.
  • The debates on legislating for a Speaker, and introducing Votes of No Confidence have stalled, with the Assembly focusing its attention elsewhere.

Update No. 9, July 2011

Naivetry announces resignation

The Rejected Realms Delegate Naivetry, has anounced that she is standing down from the position. The following is an excerpt from her speech:

A few of you knew this was coming. Some of you may have guessed. But with this post, I am announcing my resignation from the office of Delegate of The Rejected Realms.

I'm sorry about the timing - more than I can express. Through the frustration and the drama - despite the times when I shook my fist at the appearance of yet another WA resolution or embassy request - still, when it comes right down to it, I wasn't ready to go. I've been hanging on for the last few weeks to make sure we weathered the controversy over the Constitution; while that's still not entirely settled, I think we're on firmer footing than we have been. Either way, I can't stay to see it through with you. I've done what I can; the rest is yours, to build and nurture as you will.

When I was elected delegate, I had hopes of creating a new community here in TRR: running a little news service, having a club for old players to come hang out and reminisce. But what did I get? You - all of you, friends new and old - so much more than I had ever dreamed. You transformed TRR into a brilliant, remarkable place, one bursting with energy and life - and I just sat and watched, stunned, as the desert bloomed. This was not my plan. This was so much better than anything I could have achieved.

Life has a way of taking unexpected turns. Very soon, I'll be studying overseas - a possibility that was only a distant and unlikely option when I took Kandarin's nation less than a year ago. It's taken me a while to learn this lesson, too, but life also has a way of passing you by if you don't stop and live it. I can't let this chance go to waste, torn between my duties here and my work there. I'm still not ready to go... but it's long past time.

Take care of each other. Take care of TRR. I'll be here still to keep the delegacy safe through the elections, and I'll help as much as I can. My nations will stay alive even while I'm overseas; I promised a dear friend I'd look after his, after all, and I intend to keep that promise. But at long last, I think TRR will have a brand new delegate - and that's okay. We're not a region centered around one or two people anymore. And I'm counting on all of you to keep it that way.

In the end, there are no delegates and admins, Officers and citizens, visitors and oldtimers here. There's just people - beautiful, broken people doing their best to bring a little more beauty into a broken world. You are some of the best. You are extraordinary - each and every one of you. Remember that, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

It's been a great ride - full of challenge and excitement and, yes, the best kind of merriment. Thank you for giving me the honor and the privilege of serving as your delegate. Thank you for your trust. Thank you most of all for your friendship, which has made it all worthwhile. I am, and always will be, yours.

~Naivetry <><
aka Kandarin the Younger
The Rejected Realms


Delegate Elections

Following her resignation, elections have commenced, with Sedge, Guy, John Ashcroft Land and Wabbistlayah announcing their candidacy (the latter withdrawing later on). Campaigning is underway, with the following manifestos having been posted:
(Note: most are in the Citizens' Private Forum)

Voting starts on the 31st July, and lasts for a week.

Officer changes

Oliver Dion was elected an Officer, and took over the Media and Entertainment brief. However, he then resigned from his position, which is currently vacant. Guy was running against Aurora in another Officer election, but chose to pull out at the last moment, to concentrate on his run for the Delegacy. Aurora was therefore elected as an Officer, and is taking charge of Foreign Affairs.

A slight reshuffle of duties resulted in Sedge being tasked with writing updates, while Aurora gains responsibility for managing the affairs of the Assembly.

Assembly debates

The Assembly has seen several heated arguments, mostly focused around the suggested creation of an invader military in the region. There has also been discussion of the status of the Rejected Realms Army, with some claiming that it does not fall under the control of the Assembly or Constitution, and others arguing the opposite. Additionally, membership of the FRA was raised yet again, this time by Tikal. Unibot also posted a thread on punishing Sedge and CrazyGirl for their involvement in the coup in The South Pacific back in May, with the thread rapidly filling up with the "beating a dead horse" emoticon.

Citizenship issues

Biyah's application for citizenship was eventually rejected by the admins on security grounds, after a wait of several weeks. He decided to appeal this decision, with the appeal being rejected by the Assembly.

Belschaft's citizenship was removed after it was discovered that he was lobbying the FRA to invoke sanctions against The Rejected Realms. Following an eventual clarification that he was only looking for Sedge and CrazyGirl to be punished, the decision to revoke his citizenship was reversed.

Govindia applied for citizenship, a decision which was met with much unhappiness from members of the region. Following a delay of a few days, his application was rejected on the grounds that he was believed to be a threat to the security of the community. This decision was appealed, with the appeal being rejected by the Assembly - with no citizens voting to approve the appeal.

Anur-Sanur

The broken record of the Rejected Realms is still spinning, with Anur-Sanur attempting to use the citizenship controversies to stir up trouble. This approach failed, when Biyah went public about it. In the last couple of days, Anur-Sanur has threatened an un-endorsement campaign against any delegate who supports an invader military being established in the region.

Other news
  • We have opened an embassy with Taijitu, even though they are ebil invaders who briefly took over the region a few years ago.
  • The Harry Potter Extravaganza is winding down after a successful few weeks.
  • Upon realising that we had far too many hilarious IRC quotes to immortalise in our updates, Naivetry started an IRC moment thread, which is rapidly filling up.
  • The BBQ & Grill has seen several random threads, on issues ranging from pokémon to Selena Gomez.
  • The "Abbey is a cat" meme spread rapidly around the irc channel/forum, until it was stamped out by her posting an I am not a cat! thread. Image
  • Sedge became the number 1 poster, leading the (inevitable) accusations that he is a spammer - which have been strenuously denied.
  • Harmoneia has been beating up people on irc with a trout. PETA are said to be looking for her. Image

Update No. 10, August 2011

Sedge elected Delegate

The Rejected Realms concluded its delegate elections, with the announcement on August 8th that Sedge had won. Voting was close until the end, with rival candidate Guy finishing 4 votes behind. John Ashcroft Land, who had shaken up the race early on, with his radical manifesto, ultimately dropped out shortly after voting started, leaving the contest a two-horse race.

With the nation Kandarin permanently departing the delegate spot for the first time in 8 years, several outsiders decided to take advantage, and started endo-swapping in the region. While many of them remain at large in the region, they were ultimately unsuccessful, with Sedgistan ascending to the delegate position in-game on the 15th.

One of Sedge's first acts was to appoint three Vice Delegates - CrazyGirl, Spartan Termopylae, and Zyonn, to help keep the region secure, and to assist with his duties. As well as that, he has promised fortnightly reports on the actions of the government, to help keep citizens informed.

Officer changes

As is traditional in The Rejected Realms, there have been several changes to the Officers. Earth resigned for RL reasons, Whamabama was elected as an Officer, and takes charge of Media & Communications, while Aurora has moved sideways to Culture. Elections are currently taking place for the remaining two seats, with Tupelope, CrazyGirl, Chek, Mahaj and Tortallcopperisles the current candidates.

Assembly restructured

While TRR's Assembly has worked as a brilliant recruiting tool, with people applying for citizenship due to their curiosity about the contents of the forum, it was eventually decided to favour transparency, and open up the majority of the forum to public viewing. This can now be seen here. There is still a private section of the forum, where all the really interesting discussions take place.

In addition, the position of Speaker has been created, with Guy writing the legislation for this, and also being the only candidate for the position. As a result, the organisation of the Assembly's affairs will be taken out of the hands of the government.

Rejected Realms Army revitalised

The RRA saw changes too, as Cocodian was appointed a Commander. With the security issues the region has faced due to the presence of endo-swappers, it has been active with defending the region, collecting intel, and deploying to assist other regions.

A small Constitutional amendment also meant that RRA members who are citizens are no longer excluded from the requirement to keep a nation in the region at all times.

Citizenship issues

Evil Wolf had his application for citizenship turned down, on the grounds that he was joining solely to represent outside interests - namely to promote Lone Wolves United's "Scardino Pact", and because he had got several citizens to leak the contents of the Assembly forum. He appealed this rejection, and the Assembly voted in favour of the appeal.

Tikal's citizenship was revoked, due to the belief that she is "Rejected Redeemer", a nation endo-swapping in TRR, and carrying out an un-endorsement campaign against Sedgistan, as well as the suspicion that she leaked information to Evil Wolf. She has appealed this decision, which is currently being voted on.

IRC quote of the month

August sees the return of everyone's favourite part of the update:

[22:04] * +Seagee Quit
[22:04] * CrazyGirl has joined #trr
[22:04] * ChanServ sets mode: +o CrazyGirl
[22:05] <+Mahaj> hello CG!

[22:06] <@CrazyGirl> I think we'll stop that line of thought now before I get triggerhappy.
[22:08] <+Mahaj> do you even know what we're talking about? ;P lol
[22:08] <@Naivetry> MadJack's frightening imagination?
[22:10] <+Mahaj> lol

[16:11] <@Harmoneia> aahh :D
[16:11] <+Mahaj> yeah :P


Other stuff

  • Much loved citizen Abbey is stepping back from active involvement in NationStates. Her presence on the forums and irc channel will be missed.
  • Despite Naivetry's retirement, the Cult of Nai is going strong. Visit now to leave an offering and embarrass Nai.
  • The embassy with Europe is being closed due to a lack of interest in continuing relations from their side.
  • TRR's RMB has been visited by a very annoying "Rich Chinese Businessmen".
  • The BBQ & Grill is now host to a fascinating discussion on whether women find cowboy hats attractive.

Update No. 11, September 2011

With CrazyGirl becoming the Foreign Affairs Officer, it was expected that she would be writing this update instead of Sedge, for the first time since our updates started. However, she decided to test an old theory by setting up an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters, to see if they could write an update that was as good as Sedge's. Unfortunately, she could only find one monkey and one typewriter. This is what it wrote:

Officer Elections

As ever, The Rejected Realms has seen changes in its Officer line-up, with CrazyGirl, Mahaj, and Christian Democrats elected. CrazyGirl took over the Foreign Affairs briefing, while Mahaj and Christian Democrats are sharing Internal Affairs and Culture. The region has now enjoyed two consecutive weeks with a full line-up of Officers, a near-unprecedented situation.

CrazyGirl has overhauled the Foreign Affairs team, recruiting new ambassadors, re-assigning embassies, and requiring ambassadors to get more involved with the regions they are assigned to, rather than just posting updates. This change will be seen over the coming weeks, as the ambassador corps continues to expand. In addition, TRR's representatives to the FRA Regional Assembly are being reviewed, with one change already made.

Mahaj and Christian Democrats have overseen the creation of a Mentor scheme to help newcomers to the region, as well as setting up telegram campaigns, both to welcome new nations, and to boost the Delegate's endorsement count. A themed avatar competition has been set up, and planning is underway for a TRR Awards Ceremony.

Officers are now required to write fortnightly reports, which the Delegate compiles into a Government report. While these reports have been much read, apparently they are too intimidating for anyone to want to reply.

Assembly Activity

With Guy elected as Speaker, the Assembly has been discussing a number of issues, including requiring higher voting thresholds for treaties, and setting out in the Constitution the mechanism for declaring war, which briefly went off on a tangent about the RRA's status in the region. Following that recurring debate resurfacing, it is surely only a matter of time before someone suggests we reconsider our FRA membership...

Europeia Treaty - nearly

The Foreign Affairs team negotiated a treaty of friendship with Europeia that was all set to be approved by both sides, until The New Inquisition intervened (nobody expected them) to say that it'd conflict with Europeia's alliance with them. As a result, the treaty was dropped by Europeia, leaving TRR looking elsewhere for potential allies. TRR is still hoping to work with Europeia on various issues, though, and it is hoped that one day we'll be able to have an alliance with them.

Squiptare

TRR's RMB was recently visited by Squiptare, rumoured to be the successor to the Rich Chinese Businessmen from the previous update. He attempted to run for Delegate, but seemed unable to sign up for citizenship and make a proper challenge. His posts on the RMB became more and more annoying, leading to the eventual suppressing of a list of Chuck Norris jokes. This resulted in Squiptare leaving the region to challenge for Europe's delegacy, before moving on just minutes later to do the same in Absolution.

IRC quote of the month

Earth22 turned up on IRC extremely drunk, much to the amusement of everyone else. The entire conversation is too long to post, so here's a sample:

[22:09] * Earth has joined #trr
[22:09] <Earth> J cant type my aozzswrirm
[22:09] * Earth is now known as Guest73007
[22:09] <Biyah`bah> which means - she's worse than Dilber is
[22:09] <Guest73007> Damn ut
[22:09] <Guest73007> I am,ni gusest
[22:10] * Guest73007 is now known as earthieee
[22:13] <@Abbey> oh dear Earth
[22:13] <earthieee> Hahhajsa
[22:13] <earthieee> Aaabbbbbeeet
[22:14] <@Oliver> oh dear


The full conversation can be read here.

That other random stuff we put at the end, as no-one wants to write an entire paragraph on it

  • The Rejected Realms now has over 60 citizens, with a recent influx of World Assembly authors, who have been engaging in our debates on WA proposals.
  • Old-timer and RRA Veteran Getters has returned to shake things up.
  • The Rooftop Poolroom has been cleared out, and is open for business again.
  • A new Arts forum, Like or Dislike was established at the request of Spartan Termopylae.

Mini-update due to a lack of a Foreign Affairs officer:

I stepped down as officer, leaving us with 2 open officer spots. Both spots already have willing victims for them, and the confirmation vote on them will begin soon.
Furthermore, delegate Sedgistan is stepping down! The process for delegate elections has already started, meaning that anyone applying for citizenship now won't be able to vote on anything until these elections have ended. Who will be our new delegate?

I guess we'll have to wait and see :P

*Is confused already* :unsure:

Is a foreign officer spot a type of torture? In which case, I am probably one of the willing victims of said torture, as a foreign secretary of another region. :o

But good to see your elections are moving forward, having completed our own elections. :hug:

Update No. 13, August 2012

So apparently we haven't been writing these updates so frequently. The last one came out in February, and the one before that was written by me (yes, me) in September 2011. Crazy. So I've decided to show people just how easy it is to write one of these, despite barely having any involvement in the region at all. Hopefully it'll encourage them to write updates for you every month. More likely, it'll result in people begging me to write them every month. Still, it's worth a try.

Activity

Okay, activity in The Rejected Realms has been a little lower these last few months. We're no longer the "happening" region, causing all the trouble around NationStates. We've grown up a little, particularly around the midriff, and can often be found pottering around in the back garden, pruning the wysteria and listening to Neil Diamond.

If you've read this far, congratulations. I'll start talking about NationStates stuff now. Whamabama (Collector of Souls) remains Delegate, despite weekly challenges from Christian Democrats (a slight exaggeration, but that's nothing out of the ordinary for us). The Officers are probably very busy doing lots of stuff that means they don't have time for updates. Apparently, welcome telegrams are being sent out to new residents, which may or may not result in more people on the forums.

I should probably mention that at some point a while back, we were invaded by The New Inquisition. You'd forgotten about that? Yes, that's not a surprise.

Scrapping the Constitution

We're not actually scrapping the Constitution. It just makes a good headline. We have a thread by that name in the Assembly, which has devolved into discussion of anything and everything about the region. Lots of good ideas have come out of it, such as the revelatory suggestion that we should "actually do stuff". So here we are, doing stuff. Happy?

Various interesting things we might be doing soon

This is not quite the "everything else" section, but we're nearly there. TRR may be adopting a Mayan theme in the near future*, providing someone organises it. Additionally, we may be participating in war games with the other sinkers. TSP's military has been placed on red alert...

* Upon reading this section, Christian Democrats gave me puppy dog eyes until I added in a mention that he came up with the idea. For the sake of the poor blind puppies, I've edited it.

The Peanut Gallery

After months of lobbying, a petition containing thousands of signatures (where did all those come from?) and a near-revolt, the admins have finally bowed to public pressure, and created a forum for discussion of real-world issues. Yes, the stuff that happens outside your window. Take a look out there now. Scary, isn't it?

This forum is just being trialed, until the admins (who are also NationStates mods Crazy girl and Sedgistan) are assured that they won't be modding another NSG-type forum.

Citizenship Council

This happened a long time ago, but no-one mentioned it to you before. We changed the citizenship process last year, so that the admins were no longer responsible for processing citizenship applications. Instead, a Council consisting of Thought Transference, Whamabama, and Abbey Anumia was set up to do this job. It's rather dull work, and I don't have any jokes to make about it. Sorry.

Thought Transference interceded to say that actually he enjoys the work, but then his forum avatar is Plato, which tells you all you need to know. Exactly.

IRC quote of the month

This regular feature has had to be abandoned, since it's more like "IRC quote of the year". And there are so many entries, that if we included them all, this update would stretch around the circumference of the Earth* five times. You can rest assured that Mahaj probably said something silly, and there was plenty of innuendo.

* That's the planet, not our Speaker of the Assembly. She's a little smaller.

That other random stuff we put at the end

  • Sedge is still being blamed for everything. Given this update, it seems fair.
  • The Rejected Realms Army remains in existence. It also still defends. Woo.
  • The admins have a policy on IPs. It isn't very interesting, and I only included this sentence to pad out the update. This is pure filler.
  • You may or may not actually receive this update. Since we haven't been writing them, no-one has been posting them. It could be that we have no ambassadors left. Either way, you'll find out soon enough. Or not.
  • I have been forced at gunpoint to add that TRR is now hosting a boat race! Don't ask me how that works - read about it here.

The 12th update is missing because having everyone read IRC quotes about me turning into a teddy bear was too embarrassing.

Wonderful Update :)

Hoping to see TRR coming back into higher activity. The Mayan theme sounds kinda cool. Shall there be a countdown until the 21st of December? :p

TRR should perhaps post their update in regions they're treaty bound to do so in. >_>

Why a countdown to the adoption of a new calendar?
