It's nice to be eligible, but I feel like my name on that list is the equivalent of a multiple choice question on a test that asks which item does not belong with the rest of them!

Friendly reminder that nominating Presidential candidates closes at 8pm EDT today.
We have just one candidate that has received at least two nominations (they have four), and several who have one nomination. So, perhaps if you have not nominated someone and want to, your nomination will be that second one for them.

Here is a list of the Hall of Fame, updated for post-WBC 43. Here is a breakdown of which nations received points for WBC 43:

Newmanistan receives six points for winning the championship.
Free Republics receives four points for finishing as runners up.
Schiltzberg receives two points for finishing third.
Abanhfleft receives one point for finishing fourth.
Cassadaigua receives three points for hosting.
Newmanistan receives two points for completing a presidential term.

Free Republics wrote:
Schiltzberg wrote:Yes, Ilyseum was officially entered as a puppet, while Saintland was the main nation. :/ It doesn't seem right, but according to the constitution, they should be counted separately.


I don't think Saintland and Free Republics should be counted as the same nation for HoF purposes given the current constitution since there is no IC succession whatsoever and since I may actually enter Saintland in the WBC again, possibly as soon as next cycle.


I have now altered the spreadsheet to recognize Saintland and Free Republics as separate nations, as is apparently the user's wish, citing the quoted post above ^^^. If the user behind Free Republics wishes for this to be reversed, we can make that happen.

Hello, everyone! Time to take care of some more paperwork!

First, note that Drawkland is working on the ranks and has told me he should have them posted within a few days.
Next, in regards to the Hall of Fame, there are no new nations reaching eligibility requirements for this cycle. But we do have two votes:

VOTE 1: Council Inductions

The following nations posted a roster and at least one RP during WBC 43, and are not a declared puppet of another main nation:

Abanhfleft
Alpine Union
Anthor
Banija
Bauscland
Beepee
Cassadaigua
Drawkland
Ethane
Free Republics
Hampton Island
Kita-Hinode
Ko-oren
Krossa
Liventia
Lycrabon
Maklohi Vai
Mezropolis
Midand
Newmanistan
North Prarie
Northwest Kalactin
Nova Anglicana
Oscioru
Scootalove City
Schiltzberg
Super-Llamaland
The Greater Nordics
The Sherpa Empire
West Phoenicia
Xelsis



Due to Not Posting a Roster and RP in WBC 42 & 43, the following nations have lost their membership:
Equestrian States
South Covello

The following council members must produce a roster or RP during WBC 44 or they will lose membership after that classic:
Darmen
Sangti (New Sangti/Filindostan)
Tenburg

NEW NOMINEES: Due to posting a roster and RP in WBC 42 & 43, these nations are now eligible to be voted into the council:

Lycrabon
North Prarie
Northwest Kalactin
The Sherpa Empire

For each of the four nations above: Please vote FOR, AGAINST, or ABSTAIN in regards to adding them to the council.

VOTE 2: New President

My term is now over. The nomination process has concluded, and only one person has received at least two nominations in order to be considered a candidate. They received four. That person is Cassadaigua.

Honorable mention, one nomination: Ethane, Free Republics, Schiltzberg, West Phoenicia.

As Cassadaigua is the only candidate, please vote FOR, AGAINST, or ABSTAIN in regards to naming her the next President of the World Baseball Classic Council.

Please send votes to my puppet, West Pocono by 8pm EDT on Tuesday, July 3rd

True facts.

HERE are the Post-WBC 43 rankings. In their shocking runner-up performance, Free Republics managed to raise themselves from 30th to 7th ranks. Turns out winning lots of games does wonders for your rank. somebody should tell that to the base corps ...

Anyway, let me know if I've made any mistakes, as usual. Obviously, everything should be correct, but you never know.

Thank you Newmanistan for a wonderful presidential term, and congratulations Cassadaigua on your nominations! Thank you to whoever nominated me. I also wanted to mention something that I forgot in my previous post. No one is eligible for the Hall of Fame this time around, but Ethane has participated in nine WBCs, and they will be eligible after WBC 44 if they participate.

I don't know exactly who voted against you or why, but if I had to hazard a guess, I would guess it's related to RP quality and the issues that you have had in other threads, such as undeclared puppets or suspicions that you don't use a scorinator when you say you're using one.

I'm a little surprised that the vote on North Prarie was as close as it is, so maybe there's a few people that just have high standards. I mean, I suspect that North Prarie is less than half my age, but he seems like a good kid.

Why does everyone hate me

Don't take it personally. People probably voted against you because you are still pretty new to the tournament and haven't proven yourself as a competitor yet, like how some of the others who were up for vote had. Don't be discouraged by this, just continue to participate, and people will learn more about your nation and be more likely to vote you in next time.

This. Had I been eligible, I most likely would have abstained for that very reason. As it was, I waited a few Classics upon my return (12-26 I was here previously) to even put my name up for re-inclusion, just to re-acclimate myself.

I THINK it took at least two attempts way back in the day to get in the first time. Patience, padawan. It will come with time.

I believe it should be about time to reopen signups for the WBC in the next couple of weeks.
