Sorry to bump, but I had an idea for this, though I want to get other people’s thoughts: my thought is that maybe the President can have free access to telegram Delegates and/or the WA? If this is considered too large of a power, perhaps they could be limited in how many they get per term? Though I think if it were being abused, a recall could happen.

Just a thought, to give the position a bit more oomf, y’know?

I like this idea but I wonder if shoehorning that communication into the WA filter could inadvertently limit the use of the power for GP application.

For instance, if “Liberate X,” passes, the Secretary-General could put out a call to the WA to find troops to endorse the current delegate or an occupier or liberator, or something. It’s SC related, but not strictly aligned with the WA filter’s purpose.

They want to introduce a separate SG (not SG-1, sadly,) filter.

That's an interesting idea, although it's rather incongruous with the goal of increasing stamp revenue.
I want to improve.

I think the point is that you then can't use this power to campaign for reelection, but I suppose you could put an explicit rule in place for that anyways. IC-ly it makes sense - if you're WA elected, you only have power over WA nations so you should only be able to send messages to the WA. Let me know if you disagree, though.

I think the amount that would be raised from campaigning to get elected would almost certainly outweigh the $200 loss max or so (probably closer to 100 still) that this would constitute. At least, that would be my wager if past elections are anything to go off of.
