"Funcional" isn't a word. (edit: not an English word anyway.)

HEREBY commend 10000 Island.


Should be "commends" and it appears the (s) has been left off the end of the word "Islands".

Opposed for spelling and grammatical errors and the fact that it purports to commend the region of 10000 "Island", which doesn't exist.

Ok for the grammatics, i'm sorry, but when i posted it here anyone said to me about that error.

Oh yeah, by the way my dictionary reports this:

functional (comparative more functional, superlative most functional)

Positive
functional


Comparative
more functional


Superlative
most functional

1. In good working order.
2. Useful; serving a purpose, fulfilling a function

That sculpture is not merely artistic, but also functional: it can be used as a hatrack.

3. Only for fuctional purposes, notably in architecture

A functional construction element generally must meet higher technical but lower aesthetical requirements

4. (computing theory) Having semantics defined purely in terms of mathematical functions, without side-effects.


But i'm sure i posted this one once, the only other time i posted this was long ago, with a lots of errors now corrected.

I'd be willing to let "funcional" slide because even though it isn't spelled that way in English, it is spelled that way in Spanish.

Yes but in that example you'll notice it's spelled "functional", not "funcional". Not a huge deal but you really should have used the English spelling since the rest of the proposal is in English.

That's a game glitch. When it went to vote it should have disappeared from the queue, but it didn't.

Meh, like I said it's not a huge deal. I thought you were probably Italian (because of your motto), that's how I knew it was a misspelling. If you had used the Italian it would have been "funzionale". At least "funcional" means the same thing as functional in Spanish. :p

This is bizarre, honoured ambassador: a resolution that makes a carbon copy of itself, by itself and leaves the copy of itself in the queue... the magic resolution makes copies of itself! :lol:

And what? We're using WA resources to congratulate a region for being defenders? Should we commend DEN next for being raiders? I'm sure there's some fantastic milestone a raider army has just passed that the whole world would like to know about!

I don't know why not, if enough WA members think they deserve a commendation.

If the WA considers defenders worthy of commendation, then it should be able to do so. 10000 Islands are the foremost defender region in NS.

*remembers TITO's debacle with the anti-native refounding of Georgia to turn it from the nation to the state*

It's my believe that, if defenders are to be commended, which they should, raiders should be commended as well, if only because both sides of that conflict require much talent and skill.

I'd be willing to slide if it had one or two, but for a resolution that is relatively short by WA standards with several mistakes, it just doesn't convince me. I believe TITO does deserve proper recognition for their tireless work, but this resolution doesn't do them a justice. It fails to mention many of 10000 Islands other accomplishments/milestones, and almost completely lacks persuasive clauses. As much as I would like to see 10000 Islands commended, this resolution just doesn't cut it for me; it does not fit the standards of the WA, or properly commend 10000 Islands.
