[PASSED] Commend Westwind

Postby Consular » Sun Jan 11, 2015 12:39 am

This is the third draft now, I think, and incorporates feedback from previous comments and my own long list of issues I had with the previous drafts. New thread since the old one is ancient now and the previous drafts only vaguely relevant, I've more than taken my time on this one, haha. Looking back, which I did right now, I think this version is a vast improvement. Save a bit of tweaking I think it's almost good to go and will be looking to submit it at some point over the next couple of days. I would still welcome feedback from any SC veterans and/or people who are knowledgeable on the subject matter however, so critique away! I think I've eliminated all the many many r4 issues, but one may have slipped my eyes, so let me know if you see any and I shall be eternally thankful.

I can think of fewer people more deserving in this game, Westwind is a kind hearted mentor, firm leader, and brilliant architect of cunning plans. I'm looking forward to trying to get this passed.

The Security Council,

Noting that the government of Westwind has been in existence for over ten years, that this government also oversees the nation All Good People, and understanding that the accomplishments of Westwind's storied history may be difficult to quantify,

Recalling that Westwind was heavily involved with the Alliance Defense Network (ADN), an important, historically significant organization that is credited with protecting numerous regions against invasion and unprovoked aggression, where Westwind served in a number of positions including Director of the Office of Public Affairs, Prosecutor General, Secretary of Defense, Intelligence Agency Board of Directors, Deputy Director and finally Acting Director,

Recognizing that Westwind was just as much a driving force in the reorganization of the ADN, dubbed 'ADN Reloaded', moderating and then administering the forums, performing much work in building the new 'reloaded' forum structure and transferring documents,

Noting in particular the commitment to justice of Westwind, demonstrated in Westwind's actions in the ADN war on Ireland, where as Prosecutor General Westwind investigated and brought charges against then President Vasquez for the infiltration and invasion of Ireland,

Acknowledging the involvement of Westwind in numerous major military operations throughout history, including the efforts of The Pacific Army to free The Pacific from Francos Spain, the ADN puppetmaster liberation of The North Pacific in July 2004, which was one of the largest operations of its kind in NationStates, and the second liberation of The North Pacific from Pixiedance, where Westwind played a leading role as Secretary of Defense of the ADN,

Recognizing the considerable and ongoing contributions of Westwind to the region of Equilism, which have included serving in numerous government positions over time, leading the region as the World Assembly Delegate, inheriting and perserving the founder nation of Equility for various periods of time, and the administration of the Equilism forums,

Revealing that 'The Schism' of Equilism, where Westwind voided the constitution, was not undertaken out of any ambition, but was actually an orchestrated event staged to promote activity coordinated by both sides, and believing the willingness of Westwind to make great sacrifices to serve its role in this audacious plan should be noted,

Further recognizing the contributions of Westwind to the region of The West Pacific, including leading the region as an active and highly successful World Assembly Delegate for an extended period of time, ensuring administration of The West Pacific's forums, and where today Westwind continues to serve as a 'Guardian' of the region against those that might do it harm,

Applauding Westwind's ability to guide new nations, willingness to provide generous advice and insight without expectation of compensation or recognition, and admiring Westwind's willingness and ability to regard other nations with a respectable demeanor, regardless of allegiance or preference,

Asserting that such self sacrifice and dedication to the preservation and activity of the world as a whole, often in the face of harsh consequences, is both highly courageous and admirable,

Hereby commends Westwind.

Yes. Just have to treat it in an IC fashion. In one of the first lines I note the government of Westwind controls the nation of All Good People, so it's fine.

Also I believe he owns the forums in addition to administering them. Is that correct, Eq'ers?

Aye, twp.nosync. He does most of the administrative work that keeps everything moving. I wasn't sure if such matters were appropriate for an SC reso given r4, but there did appear to be precedent for it so I included it.

He doesn't own the TWP forums but does the Equilism ones I think. I considered that covered by the broad "administration" term though and not really worth its own line.

It's an R4 violation because there isn't a website in an IC sense.

You can write it in a non-R4 sense, though.

"Offsite" isn't an ambiguous term, especially in NS. TWP's forum will suffice.

I have a feeling we're secretly arguing the same thing.

I removed references to "offsite". I think that could pass as IC now.

I would say go ahead and give it a shot to reach the floor.

I'm with you. This draft has no objections anyway.

@Consular: Can you do a telegram campaign? If not, is it okay if I help out with that? Not campaigning will ruin your chances of the proposal making it to vote.

I'll propose it tonight or tomorrow.

And yes, I'll be running a telegram campaign amongst other things.

I would suggest rephrasing that to "moderating and then administrating the forums". What you have at the moment is too clear a reference to a person moderating an online forum -- and thus not Rule 4 compliant.

EDIT:
Revealing that 'The Schism' of Equilism, where Westwind voided the constitution, was not undertaken out of any personal ambition, but was actually an orchestrated event staged to promote activity coordinated by both sides, and believing the willingness of Westwind to make great sacrifices to serve its role in this audacious plan should be noted,

Also needs looking at.

If memory serves, "who" technically complies with R4, but is a tad jarring; "against those that" would work better.
