Accepts the fact that not all wrong-doers can and/or will be reformed, but emphasizes on their attempts to do so anyways;

Hereby commends The Rejected Realms

It's like you tried to write it while trying to do as little research as possible. Read up on TRR's history, then maybe try again.

Speaking as a Reject, so take what I say with a grain of salt, TRR, imo, is commendable and has done a lot of commendable things.

This doesn't touch upon or mention any of that.


Take some time to do a lot of research about the region and its 17 year history before returning to the draft

Yeah, as a TRR resident, no. Even if we felt we deserved / wanted a commendation this is not it. More research is needed - you cannot have a commendation that is quite literally 5 lines long. Read up on our history, talk to some older rejects, and try again later.

You get marks for drafting on the forum first and that's about it. As others have suggested try doing some original research on TRR - a three line draft is nowhere near acceptable.

I will echo some of the claims here, do some research, find some of the really cool heckin stuff that TRR has done, ask their members about stuff, see if there’s any good historical documents on them, maybe try reading through their gameplay thread, but just have fun and do the research to write something you can be really proud of (I believe in you!!). On the other hand, I’m actually kind of a fan of the applauds clause :o

This doesn’t even begin to encompass all that TRR has done.

Do some more research with what TRR has done. This is quite vague and you need to add more details to make your argument stand out.

"Observing the inherent mechanics of the region, hereby commends them." is not a good enough argument for the security council.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that aside from the awkward language in the underlined clause this is actually a very well-written draft. The problem is that it is not well-researched or well-argued. As several people have already said, there isn't nearly enough (or practically any) detail on the history of TRR and while (at least as far as I'm aware and as long as it complies with Rule 2) GCRs can be commended on the basis of the game-function they play, most obviously through the argument that they execute that function in a commendable fashion, the issue is that no one is going to accept that argument as anything more than an ancillary argument.

Can we also commend TWP and TP for assisting TRR in caring for banjected nations? Just curious.

Now that's the best commendation idea I've heard during my time on NationStates
