Geopolity - 10th Anniversary

Postby Republica-Argentina » Sun Mar 03, 2024 12:09 pm

On March 15th, 2014 a region focused on modern-tech roleplay was founded by a small group of people.

Ten years later, after countless In-Character and Out-of-Character experiences, ups and downs...
Geopolity continues to be a place where players can keep sharing their interest for realistic nationbuilding set in modern-time Earth.

To celebrate the founding day of the place we like to call home, Labyrnna (a.k.a. Aphras), along with the rest of people who make up Geopolity's Regional Administration, will be organizing a series of events for the community and all those who wish to join us, either at our region or our discord server.

A special Geovision edition that will pick the ultimate song out of all past and present winners ♩♫♪ 8)

A commemorative recruitment campaign, bringing our sense of community closer to all those new and returning NS players ;)

Founding Day awards to recognize our members' most outstanding qualities :clap: :lol:

A journey through the most memorable IC and OoC occasions the region has went through!

And much more!


We'd be more than glad to welcome all those who wish to join us in this historic moment for Geopolity, as we celebrate our tenth consecutive year in NationStates!

Be sure to swing by our regional chat room, located at https://discord.gg/m2E7CYt

Cheers! :lol: :hug:

Unrelated but I love the border on your flag, it’s pure perfection. Also isn’t omnisexual just bisexual?

I remember reading your region's content in 2014 - 10 years of onsite activity is an amazing achievement for a NationStates RP region, wow. For comparison, back in 2014 your region would have to compete with RP regions like Esquarium (100+ RPers), Greater Dienstad and at least 10 other large active ones onsite and in Forum (NS RP and onsite RPing were more active back in 2009-16). Esquarium and many of those old RP regions are now, well, dead, or largely inactive onsite, while Geopolity is still active here. Congratulations, that is amazing

We have gone through low activity periods thoughout the years, like any other region. But I distinctly remember around 2019 we had our lowest nation count ever.

Our founder and the Regional Administration at the time where busy with RL issues. That, coupled with the natural decline of accounts that cease to exist, and recruitment campaigns that had little (if any) success, made us question if Geo would, or could, really overcome that drastic slump in activity.

Personally I know we doubled and tripled efforts to make our region attractive to new players, kept our community spirit, and obviously we had that bit of luck that helped us succeed. And here we are, strong as ever. I love this place and it has been my favorite place to play nationbuilding since Sept '14. I wouldn't change a thing :)

First map update of Geo's 10th birthday celebrations!
All these players, old and new, are what has made and will continue to make Geopolity a special place :hug:

Thanks for this in particular, that's very kind of you!

And thank you to everyone else for the congrats and well-wishes, it's really insane to think that it's been nearly a decade. I know that despite all of the ups and downs over the years that I'm happy to call Geopolity home, and I really wouldn't change it for anything.

And today officially marks 10 full years! We already posted about it on our Discord server, but I'm so happy to mark it with our community, and I'm happy for all of the time that we have shared throughout all of this time. Here's hoping that ten years from now that I will be saying the very same thing!
