[DORMANT] Repeal “Commend SkyDip”

Postby SkyDip » Mon Jul 13, 2020 9:19 am

Please be gentle - it’s been a while since I wrote one of these.

Repeal "Commend SkyDip"

A resolution to repeal a previously passed resolution

Category: Repeal | Resolution: SC#118| Proposed by: SkyDip


Description: WA Security Council Resolution #118: Commend SkyDip shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The Security Council,

ACKNOWLEDGING that SkyDip and their World Assembly ambassador, Elias Greyjoy, have made many contributions to the Security Council, authoring multiple resolutions,

APPLAUDING the intent of SC#118,

CONCERNED that SC#118 includes multiple action points that do not meet the benchmark of the Security Council, including nation rankings and regional Delegate status,

DECLARING that SC#118 contains few examples of exceptionalism that go above and beyond the normal activities of many nations in the world,

CRITICIZING the interchangeable use of SkyDip and Skydip, an improper nomenclature for the nation in question, in SC#118,

ADMITTING that the WA Delegation of SkyDip believes their own nation falls short of the lofty standards of a Security Council Commendation,

BELIEVING that SkyDip is not worthy of a Security Council Commendation based on the merits presented in SC#118,

HEREBY REPEALS SC#118

Thanks, Jakker. Looks like you got a promotion since the last time I was around here - shocked they allow you near the control panels for the forums!

Boredom, mostly. Need to get back into the swing of things if I want to be an active member again. Also, that proposal is rather poorly written.

Back when I actually had a handle on how the SC worked, self-commendation/condemnation was frowned up pretty universally, so a self repeal should be universally accepted, right?

I haven't seen many self-repeals done, but this proposal has a lot of potential. Full support.

I don't really know you, but seeing you back is very cool. Is this just a brief nostalgia trip, or are you actually coming back to the SC?

Are you looking for a better commendation or something?

Who can say? I’ll play it by ear. But looks like this place is...blows dust off of stack of books...rather empty. Might need to be filled again!

Not at this time. Was never really a fan of this one, to be honest. It’s...sloppy.

ADMITTING that SkyDip believes their own nation falls short of the lofty standards of a Security Council Commendation,


I think think should be attributed to SkyDip’s WA delegation or the leader of SkyDip rather than the entire nation. It seems to push R4b to say an entire nation believes something.

A couple of minor nitpicks:

SkyDip wrote:APPLAUDING the intent of SC#118,

What intent? This line seems a bit out of place considering the structure of the other clauses where you expand and explain on your reasoning. This one doesn't.

SkyDip wrote:ADMITTING that the WA Delegation of SkyDip believes their own nation falls short of the lofty standards of a Security Council Commendation,

This is the second time you've used "lofty standards". Is there another way to phrase it to get rid of the repetition?

Otherwise, full support.

I am open to revisiting this if I hear more of the same.

It doesn't really. It reads as if you don't think you deserve a commendation at all, while the next clause reads as the SC should not commend you based on what's in 118. Although maybe I'm just being pedantic.
