I'd go to say that the current draft is probably convincing enough to me, although I'm not sure if it's convincing enough to the general SC voter pool. I also feel like there's a lot that can be more specified, and this resolution can use some smoothing over to flow better.

So my feedback:
Recalling Joe Bobs' beginnings as a member of Q102, where it already garnered praise for its admirable government policies, especially:
Having one of the most exemplary historians in NationStates, whose works are best displayed through the incredibly well-detailed documentation of the Bobbian Civil War, even documenting foreign aid to the same level of detail,
Running an extremely reliable News Agency that has recorded much of the history of Joe Bobs in astonishing levels of detail, from the attempted invasion by the neighbouring nation of Mweeha to a failed military coup d’etat attempt, and
Showing dedication to utopian policies, notably through its universal healthcare, strong opposition to the death penalty, support of the environment and extensive protections of animal rights,
While I personally think the roleplay is fine, you're probably going to face some difficulty in getting people to see this clause as commendable, given this isn't coming from a person relatively well-known today as an RPer or one that has an extensive history of on-site RP.

I don't think there's a way to fix that, just something to be noted.


Yeah, this was all off-site Q102 regional roleplay. That said, if people want the references for that; this, this (yes the entire thread) and this for the Bobbian Civil War, this for the News Agency and the utopian policies section as well as talking to old people around then like Pacifist Cowards and Orioni 2.
Zukchiva wrote:
and its introduction of a formal alliance with Europa, which became a close ally of Q102 and was notable for its thriving community that encouraged international politics and scientific development,
Instead of detailing Europa was, it may be a better idea to focus on the two's relationship. How was it close? Did Europa end up helping out Q102 in certain situatiosn? Did they do anything together? etc.

Lots of cross-membership, the alliance literally got voted as the most important alliance for Q102 once (or something similar), overall extremely close allies.

I could possibly mention ^, but wouldn't that come off as filler?

Dignifying that Joe Bobs created the Q102 University, where national leaders in Q102 could learn about various subjects, then going on to teach various subjects there such as Philosophy, Literature and NationStates history, and was a central figure in the creation of the Q102 Hall of Fame, allowing the best contributors to Q102 to be officially recognised within the region,

Applauding Joe Bobs' founding of the Anti-Racism Coalition in 2006, once one of the largest inter-regional coalitions, that went on to aid in the fight against the reprehensible ideologies of Nazism and racism, and included over 500 individual members as well as noteworthy regions such as The New Meritocracy and Belgium,
These read a bit clunky and could use some rewording to flow better. "Dignifying" seems like a weird action choice here.

Is this better?

Zukchiva wrote:Also, did Joe Bobs actually do anything for the Anti-Racism Coalition? One can found something then let someone else do all the work (given everything in this thread that doesn't sound like Joe Bobs at all, but the resolution doesn't show that). It would be best to reword that clause to explain Joe's contribution the org.

Unfortunately, there's not really much that can be found about this, especially as most of the records from there are gone (for example the ARC forums were not transferred into Zetaboards when Invisionfree died and thus can't be accessed anymore). However, he was Chairman of the ARC, something I'll mention.

Also a bit clunky and can be reworded a bit better.

Sure, I decided to make that its own clause actually and break up that list. How's this?

As I've said before, this doesn't really tell me anything. You need to explain why these relationships matter besides these relationships being significant. Did GRA do anything notable with these relations?

Alternatively, you could consider nixing this clause and dedicating the characters elsewhere.

Yeah, good point (especially as I current have a lot of characters). Axed it.

Reorganising the Ministry of Internal Affairs as GRA President by dividing it into the Ministries of Culture and Activity, allowing for more focus on both departments and resulting in the creation of the GRA Economy program overseen by Joe Bobs, encouraging government participation by rewarding "cash" for participation, and
It may be a good idea to specify on the "more focus" part. Also IMO, the GRA Economy program sounds like a bit more noteworthy than a simple structural rehaul, so I'd personally replace this clause w/ a clause about the Economy program and specifying what Joe Bob did to create it, and how its success helped the region beyond government participation if anything.

I changed the part so it focuses more on the GRA Economy than the MoIA split. How's this?
Hailing Joe Bobs' pivotal role in the creation of the GRA Economy program as President, which encouraged government participation by rewarding regional "cash" for participation, as well as reorganising of the Ministry of Internal Affairs as President by dividing it into the Ministries of Culture and Activity, allowing for further focus on both departments,

And how did they build up the GRA Defence Forces? Stating they helped isgreat but doesn't show the work the nominee put into making it happen.

Sure, how's this:
Acclaiming that Joe Bobs played an important role in rebuilding the GRA Defence Forces from a relatively inactive state around 2010 through both recruitment and structural reforms, soon making it a dominant force in defending again,


Zukchiva wrote:
Acclaiming Joe Bobs’ work in helping get the GRA's Foreign Affairs set up after the region was relaunched in 2014 as Minister of Foreign Affairs, building diplomatic relations with many significant regions such as Capitalist Paradise, Spiritus and the Rejected Realms,
Explain what happened between GRA and these relations. For all we know, relations led to absolutely nothing and were inactive the whole time.

I'd also point out that while I personally think creating embassies can be commendable, others very much disagree... and dedicating two clauses to embassy building is probably not a good idea because of that. Up to you if you wanna remove this clause or the other embassy clause or keep them both or remove them both or whatever, just saying.

Axed it then, okay.

Zukchiva wrote:
Cognisant that Joe Bobs also helped rebuild much of the region's infrastructure following the relaunch as Speaker and First Minister, most notably the Judiciary, World Assembly Delegate elections and Speaker succession, as well as restarting the rotatorship,
This clause is confusing. It should be mentioned exactly how Joe Bobs "helped rebuild" the region's infrastructure. This seems like it was through legislation, but that remains very unclear.


Also, I have no clue what a First Minister is and I'm sure many others will not know as well. Needs some clarification or removal.[/quote]
First Minister is just the equivalent of President or Prime Minister. Yep, was through legislation. Anyway, I entirely reworked that section:

I think this clause is pretty great, but I'd delete the part about "participating in countless defensive operations abroad" unless you can substantiate that with a numerical statistic, and focus more on their Arch-Chancellor term and specify on their actions to help FRA stabilization policies instead of their participation in ops.

Sure, done.

Believing that while Joe Bobs' flag and national symbol, the penguin, is known largely for being cute and fluffy, Joe Bobs' achievements in various regions and the defending cause should not go unrecognised,
It'd be better to set up a proper juxtaposition here IMO. So say something like "Believing that while Joe Bobs' flag and national symbol, the penguin, is known largely for [insert value of penguins anthetical to region building], Joe Bobs' achievements in various regions and the defending cause only serve as examples of [insert value opposite to the penguins] and deserve interregional recognition,"

Or something like that.[/quote]

Your explanation of Europa is already filler in this context :p

Maybe "and its introduction of a formal alliance with Europa, which became such a close ally of Q102 that Q102's community later designated the alliance as one of most valued regional relationships at that time,"

Or something like that, I'm not too good at wordsmithing.

Second clause seems good now, the first clause still reads a little wonky. May be a good idea to split the University thing into its own clause and just elaborate on the Hall of Fame.


Unfortunately, there's not really much that can be found about this, especially as most of the records from there are gone (for example the ARC forums were not transferred into Zetaboards when Invisionfree died and thus can't be accessed anymore). However, he was Chairman of the ARC, something I'll mention.
Then I'm not sure this will help the commend out. 500 members is no mean feat, but just saying "oh they created something and served as its head for some time" doesn't show if the nominee had an impact on growing the coalition. Sure, it's implied, but it's best practice to directly connect the nominee's work with the org to the org's growth or ability to engage in its mission.

Is there any older players you can talk to about this?

I don't think splitting it into its own clause works, because now there's little mention of Joe's "contributions" besides the rotatorship. IMO it's better as a list, or focus explicitly on the rotatorship in this clause, rather than introducing the clause with Joe's overall GRA work then not specifying much on it.

I changed the part so it focuses more on the GRA Economy than the MoIA split. How's this?
It's a bit better, but I think elaborating more on the economy - how they helped build it, whether it had other effects besides raising government participation, and completely nixing the structural reform would be better. IMO.

Acclaiming that Joe Bobs played an important role in rebuilding the GRA Defence Forces from a relatively inactive state around 2010 through both recruitment and structural reforms, soon making it a dominant force in defending again,
Can you specify a bit more? What were the structural changes? How did they improve the military? What were the specific recruitment reforms? May benefit from making a list clause on this.

Hm, I'd try: "Cognisant that following the GRA's relaunch in 2014 after years of inactivity, Joe Bobs helped rebuild regional infrastructure by writing legislation that defined judicial procedures, regulations for World Assembly Delegate elections, and Speaker succession - ensuring the region had integral procedures in place during its redevelopment."

Reads a bit better. Still feel the first two sentence clauses (extolling and ensuring) don't work too well with the rest of the clause though.

I think one thing you need to do in general is re-evaluate the resolution and see how it compares to your earlier drafts. While there is some new content since you pulled and reworked it, I still feel much of the content is similar to the previous resolution. Considering you pulled out because URA & TNP voted against and that TNP voted against because it didn't view the nominee as commendable, that doesn't necessarily bode well if you submit it now. At least that's how I'm feeling with this, although I can't think of something specific to fix it.

I tried talking to people like Dalimbar and Orioni 2, but didn't really get much as to ARC. :P I did reword that, however, to put more emphasis on Joe Bobs' efforts.

To be honest, I never really imagined TNP changing their stance (though I'd definitely be happy if they did!); the point was more that other regions like TEP or TWP don't jump on the train of opposing this, which honestly seemed pretty likely. That said, I'll probably be leaving this for more open comments for about 2 - 3 more days before submitting.

After procrastinating a bit (>_>), submitted!

Good morning Delegate %NATION%!

I am Apatosaurus, a past WA author and I am asking you to approve my updated SC proposal to Commend Joe Bobs (for the record, this was previously submitted but pulled from queue for further drafting).

This is a nominee who contributed to multiple regions such as Q102 and the Global Right Alliance, to an outstanding extent, as well as being a famous defender at the time. Some of this nominee's many really cool achievements include:

- Helping build Q102 into one of the biggest and most significant regions,
- Founding the Anti-Racism Coalition in 2006, a large coalition against racism and nazism that grew to over 500 members,
- Helping build the Global Right Alliance, a famous defender region, both by building its military and building regional culture and infrastructure,
- For a while, running the Founderless Regions Alliance, which was once one of the largest, if not the largest defender alliances, both politically and militarily, and
- Compiling the histories of many regions, such as the Global Right Alliance and United Kingdom.

If you agree that this nominee has earned the award, then go approve this!

Feel free to telegram back if you have any questions ^-^
