I'm writing this from Rapture. It's beautiful...such transcendent splendour... Lol jk you guys.
Cool, I made top 100! No. 60, lowest taxes!
Okay, for a while now, there has been a new feature on NS that makes it easier for people to find a region they will fit into by looking at the "tags". As you can see, I have already added a few, but would like your input if you think we can add others. I was considering adding "Liberal" as in Europe that word means something a bit different from the US, and actually it would fit well here. This could be a good way to revitalise our region. Unfortunately, many of my own revitalisation plans have been hampered by some RL stuff, but this could help us a little. Here are the available tags:
* Anti World Assembly
* Enormous (Region has 101 to 500 nations.)
* Fantasy Tech
* Featured (Region has been featured since May 8th.)
* FT: FTL (Future Tech: Faster Than Light)
* FT: FTLi (Future Tech: Faster Than Light inhibited?)
* FT: STL (Future Tech: Slower Than Light)
* Future Tech
* Game Player
* Gargantuan (Region has more than 500 nations.)
* General Assembly
* International Federalist
* Large (Region has 51 to 100 nations.)
* Minuscule (Region has 1 to 5 nations.)
* Modern Tech
* National Sovereigntist
* Past Tech
* Post-Modern Tech
* Recruiter Friendly
* Regional Government
* Role Player
* Security Council
* Small (Region has 6 to 10 nations.)
* Video Game
* World Assembly
Welcome to Galts Gulch, Iloveyoutoo!
I would maybe add "National Sovereigntist" but I think having both liberal and conservative up there would be confusing.
Definitely socialist(lol jk). Maybe Independant?
Okay, Independent added.
Maybe also Anti-Fascist? I wish they had Anti-Communist. Democratic is one I would like to suggest, but we are not entirely enamored with all types of democracy for obvious reasons, making me wish they had "Constitutionalist" or "Democratic Republican" in there too.
And Happy Independence Day, nations of Galts Gulch!
Hope GG gets back into the Warzone invading business,those were fun times..
Someone else remembers those days! Good times. They're coming back. Slowly maybe, just needs time and work.
The warzone invading business? Do tell....
My memory of it was very vague, as it was in the first months I first had a nation here. We controlled a couple of them at once I think and I remember we held a record for holding one of them, which may still stand. Might have been Warzone Airspace.
We're going to need a few more people if we want to get anything going. They're also going to have to be very interesting people, since objectivists don't tend to be that militant.
My spirit is gladdened to be home.
Welcome home, Banhold!
Thanks for your warm sentiments. How can I help out here?
We have been trying to get some brainstorming going on how to revitalize the region and bring it back to its former glory. Though I was working on my own proposal for this a couple months ago, some RL stuff came up and has made me unable to spend too long here. But any ideas on that would be greatly appreciated. I have been adding tags, proposing embassies to like-minded regions, anything to draw attention to us.
What I am most interested in is a recruiting policy. When I recruited for our region back in our glory days, the policy was to only send direct telegrams, which I think annoyed more people than anything else.
Maybe we could become active on the forums?
Yes,those were fun times,Warzone fighting..
Forum activity might be a good way to attract people. But does anyone have ideas on how to do this? A regional roleplay thread that others might like to join in on is all I can think of at the moment. Any suggestions on how to implement this, or other suggestions?
If we can get a few ideas off the ground, a Warzone or two will be ours again.
In terms of forum activity I propose setting up a business league on the economic forums as well as debating economic and political issues in the WA forums. That should get our unique ideology some well deserved attention.
If you have specific ideas on how the business league idea could be implemented, I would like to hear it. Individual nations from neutral or even hostile nations would probably like to join and could potentially be drawn to our region. If it takes off, the fact alone that a member of our region had the idea originally could be good advertising for Galts Gulch.
I have checked nations of our region for forum participation and found few of us has more than 1,000 forum posts. Now, I know that unlike members of the Proletariat Coalition or the Democratic Socialist Assembly, most of the people in this region likely have RL jobs and probably don't have the time for prolonged debate on an Internet forum (I am self-employed, so I do). But even a measly post of "20 centimeters" on the "What is your nation's average penis size" thread in Factbooks could potentially get someone to look at your nation, and the region it is in.
I agree completely(except for the average penis size, VG's average is 8 yards). I'll look at the best way to form a business league and then propose a draft to the fine nations of Galts Gulch. Have we come up with a recruiting strategy yet?
