NSGP Surprise Block Party!!!!

Postby Galiantus III » Fri Mar 05, 2021 3:40 pm

Hello NationStates Gameplay!

I am planning a block party this next update. Why? Because this thing from the trash compactor Condemn The Communist Bloc has graced the quorum of the World Assembly. It must be blocked!

However, I need some help to make this happen. I've got all the refreshments and compiled a guest list, but I still need to find a host, a good DJ, and a catering crew. If anyone would like to contribute these services, post your offerings here!

Let's bring down the house! 8)

Your bolding of Block reminded me of a certain someone and now I can't unsee it

You might think it's boring to sing Karaoke by yourself, but let's be honest: You sing in the shower by yourself, and it doesn't sound half as good! Admittedly, it took a few minutes to get my voice warmed up,



Join me next update for Block Party pt. II! (No more partying after that though)

This is absolutely pathetic, as you raided my region, only for our delegate to vote it down anyway. Plus, you didn't even stop the vote, and the resolution had absolutely no chance of passing anyway.

  1. In terms of relative power, your delegate's approval carries more weight than his vote. Why is he approving things he intends to vote against?
  2. The whole point is that this resolution had no chance of passing. It was a waste of time for it to reach the floor, and your delegate is partially responsible for this because of his rubber-stamping of every single proposal.
  3. Yeah I didn't block it; but I did get your attention. Maybe now you'll elect a World Assembly delegate who actually cares about the World Assembly

  • The whole point is that this resolution had no chance of passing. It was a waste of time for it to reach the floor, and your delegate is partially responsible for this because of his rubber-stamping of every single proposal.

  • Stamp stamp stamp
  • Yeah I didn't block it; but I did get your attention. Maybe now you'll elect a World Assembly delegate who actually cares about the World Assembly

  • Y’all take this shit way to seriously. It’s just a game. Besides who cares if I rubber stamp everything. If you actually want me to change my vote you could easily send me a TG I’m pretty open to talking, especially since I don’t do much these days

    If it reaches quorum, yes. And if you don't want it to reach quorum you should probably tell your delegate to withdraw his approval. It has 7 hours left and 6 approvals to go.
