Maybe complain that the proposal doesn't do the nominee justice and it doesn't go above and beyond to really make its case.

It's not my fault that TNP MoWAA saw the resolution that contains this passage as "well-written" and "unique" eighteen months ago:
Acknowledging Candensia as an exemplary nation in this regard, having brought no less than twelve matters of national concern to the desks of political leaders, including:
  • The funding of music education via A-Major Debate;
  • Public safety from serious weather threats and the practicality of various alarm systems via Siren Song;
  • Ethical treatment of criminals, through last meals before execution, via A Meal to Die For, and prison release for terminally ill and elderly inmates, via The Sickest Criminals;
  • The environmental effects of artificial dye via Rivers of Blood;
  • Travel safety and environmental health in mountainous areas via Rocky Road; and
  • Humanitarian aid to a difficult-to-access island following a series of natural disasters via Crate Work, Plane and Simple;

while they now believe that the resolution that contains this passage fails "to establish the nominee's commend-worthiness:"
NOTING that, as of early December 2021, activists from Sacara have gone to infinity and beyond to provide potential answers for fifteen different issues regarding matters as diverse as:
  • opportunities to reform and relax parental licensing standards (known to leaders as "Mother Knows Best?");
  • potential consequences for past use of language now widely seen as offensive, whether by currently prominent politicians ("Skeletons in the Closet") or in contemporary pop culture ("With Friends Like These...");
  • the legitimacy of allowing children to donate money to politicians, never mind to actually cast votes for them ("A Minor Political Problem");
  • to what extent the obligation of police forces to apprehend suspected criminals should restrict the right of religions to hold services without undue interference ("Livin' on a Prayer"); and
  • whether or not to make minimum age recommendations for watching disturbing films mandatory ("Curtains for the Horrorshow");

(although I will grant that the makeup of the team has shifted drastically since May 2020 :P)

Total issue count is rather inconsequential at that scale. Candensia's commendation establishes a broad range of merit, from issues writing to proposal authorship to regional defense and administration. This commendation is essentially just issues, with an addendum referencing story contests that, in the GP-dominated SC, do not carry much weight regardless of their value to the community.
I want to improve.

I'm confused. Sacara is an issues writer? Or an issues spoiler writer? Or an issue writing mentor?

Because I'm confused about what it is this nation actually did, I cannot vote to commend.

Lol this is so adorable

Not an answer + I don't see what you pretending to find something 'adorable' has to do with anything.

Regardless, I find it pretty interesting that you couldn't reply to my initial response yourself.

Hi, TNP's Minister of WA Affairs here. He isn't complaining about the fact it was downvoted.1 It's nice for us to get lots of upvotes because it grants us exposure. He was more poking fun at the seeming downvote campaign on it given that the resolution wasn't passing.

1For all we know no one could have upvoted it, but given our track record (and our knowledge of downvote campaigns on our IFVs in the past), we think it's a pretty safe assumption.
