An interesting concept, but this nation is just a puppet of All Wild Things.

You may want to look to their nation and even ask them some questions as this isn't the only project the have.

Nothing even remotely commendable.

Agreed. The author has done very little in terms of research, nothing that would make me want to commend the region.

Rather than merely commending the region, try doing it for the player behind its founder nation. As I understand, they have been involved in more endeavors than just NewsStand.

Some more detailed feedback on why this is not a good draft.

Hagston wrote:The Security Council,

PRAISING The NewsStand's continuous effort at spreading news and regional affairs throughout the NationStates community.

The big problem is that the NewsStand doesn't produce anything remotely original. They just provide links to other regions newspapers. If they had some journalistic chops and had produced a quality newspaper of their own for a long period of time they might be Commendable. Being the "Reader's Digest" of NS doesn't cut it.

Hagston wrote:NOTING that The NewsStand has been operating for over three years, and continues to do so today.

This is just filler. There have been regions operating continuously for much longer than this - it's not a reason to commend.

Hagston wrote:INSPIRED by The NewsStand's ability to bring together regions of all sizes through advertising their polls, newspapers and dispatches.

They have also managed to annoy quite a few regions with their RMB spam, sorry postings. They are limited to, I suspect, those regions they have embassies with and those they have permission to post their digest to. Hardly the whole NS community.

As LollerLand suggested you might want to research the nation behind the NewsStand, because this attempt will go nowhere.

Ok, that's helpful. Thanks!

Hagston's deportment is certainly refreshing compared to the angry responses to criticism that we usually get from new SCers.

I agree with what Bhang Bhang Duc said, the region having been existence for three years isn't commendable as there are many regions who have been in existence for three years or more. I also don't think that the actual newspapers from The NewsStand are commendable, since after taking a quick look at it it appears that The NewsStand is for sharing newspapers from different regions, not for making their own news.

Taking a look at the nation behind The NewsStand would be a good idea, I don't know much about that nation (or who that nation is, for that matter) but it'll probably help you find some points that you could use for the commendation.

Yes it was - I hope they try again.

Hi, slightly off topic, but if you could let me know which regions have been annoyed it would be very helpful. It would allow me to work out how to improve relationships going forward. I don't like the idea that people are upset, but feel unable to speak to me directly about it.
