[PASSED] Commend A mean old man

Postby Skyrim Diplomacy » Sat Aug 27, 2011 12:04 pm

The draft has been submitted.

The World Assembly Security Council,

RECOGNIZING The Weed-Choked Lawn of A mean old man (AMOM) as both an active and influential nation founded in 2008 and a tireless member of the Pacific for over a year; involved both in regional politics and recreation,

NOTING that AMOM has had a profound effect on the world; most notably the World Assembly and the nations that abide within it, by authoring and co-authoring multiple World Assembly proposals that stretch back to the infancy of the Security Council, including, but not limited to:

SC#16 - Repeal Liberate the Security Council
SC#26 - Commend The Joint Systems Alliance
SC#30 - Commend 10000 Islands
SC#37 - Condemn NAZI EUROPE
SC#62 - Repeal "Condemn Swarmlandia"
SC#65 - Condemn Punk Reloaded
GA#149 - On Expiration Dates
and that AMOM has authored nine (one General Assembly, eight Security Council) World Assembly laws and has co-authored numerous others, making AMOM one of the most prevalent and successful authors of World Assembly and Security Council proposals in the history of this Assembly,

REALIZING that the contributions made by AMOM, giving special note to the multiple Security Council proposals authored by AMOM, has commended notable regions, successfully fought to remove self-condemnations, condemned raiders, crashers, and warlord Delegates, and that these actions have resulted in a more balanced and just world,

IMPRESSED that AMOM recently took a stand against the "renegade Delegate" Punk Reloaded (PR) of the West Pacific with SC#65 "Condemn Punk Reloaded" for the unjustified war that PR declared on the South Pacific and other atrocities committed and noted in SC#65, noting that PR was one of the most powerful and influential Delegates at the time and that the West Pacific is one of the largest and most powerful regions in the world,

AFFIRMING that AMOM and the nation Topdop are controlled by the same administration and government, and that Topdop was the architect nation behind the democratic establishment of government in the region Osiris, in which Topdop made it possible for the natives of the region to vote for their own Delegate and to establish their own regional government,

DISTINGUISHING AMOM, alongside Krulltopia and Todd McCloud, as a principle founding nation of the successful Modern Pacific Alliance (MPA), an accord that seeks to unify the traditionally isolated "Pacific" regions (the Pacific, the North, East, South, West Pacific), and recognizing that such a cross-regional pact has never been accomplished between these massive regions, signifying an incredible political feat,

ACKNOWLEDGING that AMOM has already left a mark in the World Assembly by authoring multiple laws and statutes throughout the years that have stood the test of time, and that these actions alone will codify AMOM as an efficacious and outstanding member of the World Assembly and the world at large,

BELIEVES, however, that AMOM deserves further recognition for the efforts and reasons described above as a prolific author of lawful statutes and champion of justice and order in the world,

HEREBY Commends The Weed-Choked Lawn of A mean old man.

A commendation of AMOM is incomplete without mentioning the epic art gallery he ran.

Also, as I told someone who asked me about this recently, AMOM has succeeded in making information known which was meant to be hidden by a large corrupt group.

And he was a founding member of the 3WB which shut the SC down for the months prior to the passing of Condemn Unknown.

Maybe mentioning his role in The Pacific, I know he's quite proud of his membership there. :)

I support. However, expect Amom to condemn this proposal because he (I think) is so humble.

It is generally principle that one publicly approve of an attempt to commend them. Therefore, I am here to repeat what I said in a message to another potential author who expressed an interest in writing a commendation of me three days ago and which I repeated in an extended telegram to Skyrim Diplomacy when he first alerted me to his interest in pursuing this as well:

Though my displeasure with the idea of seeing another one come to vote has waned since it last happened, the idea of being the subject of another WASC resolution once again still leaves me a bit uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for your enthusiasm. If you'd like to try it out you may.
. . .
. . .I personally would rather not take an active role in the writing or even the compilation of information on my own commendation. It's probably how difficult I can be in this position since the last two times a commendation of me failed that has stopped others from submitting new ones, though if you're up to the challenge, I applaud you for it.


So I approve, however with hesitance, and also will keep my activity in this thread and regarding the commendation itself to a minimum. I will say, though, that the usage of the word "personally" is a borderline R4 violation.

TG me a response - which group was this? You've piqued my curiosity.

And he was a founding member of the 3WB which shut the SC down for the months prior to the passing of Condemn Unknown.


Not really proud of that. :unsure:

If this version fails to attain quorum, I will happily do some more revisions and editing. In the meantime, what would you add/change?

On a personal capacity, I support commending AMOM. Even though we had our differences, it didn't stop us to work together successfully on several occasions. That shows his professionalism.

Also, author of the resolution should note that AMOM was also co-author of SC#63.

GA#053 - Epidemic Response Act
GA#163 - Repeal LOTS

SC#044 - Commend Texas (co-author)

SC#135 - Liberate Anarchy (co-author)

It would seem multiple regions/delegates are against my (admittedly) premature submission of this proposal, so please continue to comment/offer suggestions.

Todd and Sedge have both suggested adding more detail to the effects of the laws AMOM has written and passed successfully. Thoughts on which to expand? I don't want to create a giant list, but I agree that some detail in the second draft should be added, should the current proposal fail to reach quorum. Personally, I would expand upon the Condemnation of Punk Reloaded, SC#16-a success repeal of a liberation, SC#30-Commend 10000 Islands, and GA#149 for some balance.

Good Job.

You took my former draft of AMOM, and gave it a good spark.

Why did my versions fail?
You can call me "Juris" for short. Also, you don't have to type my nation name in all caps either.

The easiest way to fail with a proposal is to not campaign for it through Telegrams sent to Delegates.

I believe AMOM has done a lot to be commended.

I do have a problem with the mention of my condemnation however from the standpoint that I do not believe TWP, and myself specifically, committed the atrocities therein. Having said that, I believe AMOM has had a positive effect upon the game and lesser actions have been both commended and condemned, in my opinion.

Not trying to gravedig, but is this still being considered? I should hope so, as AMOM, without a doubt, deserves his commendation. The draft could still use a bit of work, but overall, I support it.

It's a been a while since this has been submitted, and I'd like to try again, especially with the recent passage of a very similar bill, SC #70 (congrats to Connopolis yet again :clap: ).

Any new thoughts/ideas from those who had reservations previously?
