Ah, very good. Do you intend to create more stripes if more members join? Or will those boxes with the diagonal lines account for that? (I wasn't sure what to make of them.)
Do we have any sort of whip voting system, and what ways can nations help manage the rp sort of side of this region?

If you're talking about the World Assembly votes, we don't whip. But if you're looking to get more involved in Balder's WA mission you can join us on the forums and get involved!

Ich spachen möntsdeutsche per se. Die man von monteseuren spachen es. Presidente Catrin Bickel es de wenlich von de lande, für untrag en sovrentie. Ok, Ich fin. Gudttagg ihr!
I would support it if you wrote it, but there’s a lot of resolutions already out there that deal with climate control. You would have to do a lot of looking through past GA resolutions to make sure yours isn’t a duplicate
Is Pacific Con just the NS WF but for members of the Pacific feeders?
Basically, except everyone is invited. There's also the NSGE coming up which is supposed to be a new NS WF
Howdy! WAddaya mean by clean cooking?
I was inactive for 27 days and without realizing it I disappeared 😂
As the former Mayor of Ribe, Deputy Talman of the Odelsting, Acting Talman of the Odelsting, and one time Exchequer-Designate, I demand satisfaction, an apology, and re-admittance in honor to the citizenry and government of the Kingdom of Balder.
You demand an apology for spewing insults to our region and its leadership and then trying to recruit for your region on our own forum? I wonder why you want back when "every single aspect of the region is corrupt" and we are a "dead region".
If you want back, demanding an apology from us is the wrong way of going about it. Perhaps if you were to have apologized, and not pretended it was your right to be a citizen, there might've been a chance.
I can only agree with Bowzin.
Nothing about your behaviour towards us, from your insult strewn rant of a resignation post to your shameless attempts at recruitment, your brazen attempt at re-applying for citizenship and this completely delusional demand for "satisfaction" shows anything but contempt for Balder and its people. It also demonstrates a complete lack of insight into your own behaviour and a distinctly poor attempt to airbrush over your dismal attitude towards us.
Your former positions mean nothing given the complete lack of respect you showed any of them. Apologising and re-admitting you would do the opposite of honouring this region, its government and citizens. Take your pathetic attempts at grandstanding elsewhere.

I'm grandstanding? I was railroaded, for what essentially amounted to nothing. I was told one thing, pulled another way, and forced to go another.
I was a new player, and look to do nothing but serve the realm, and I did that with grace, and intense ability, despite little guidance, and a fractious government.
The fact that I get the sneer and contempt when this so-called plot was orchestrated by one of your oldest and most prominent citizens, and involved you, Bowzin, and was all planned directly underneath your own noses, only serves to cast doubt on your ability, not mine.
I was the father of this region's economic system, the first to give birth to the idea of a mayoralty and bring it to fruition. I served fully, honorably, and capably, so much so that I was endorsed by the King as Talman, before he decided it more politically expedient to throw everyone except Bowzin the Bootlicker under the bus.
As for this ridiculous claim that I attempted to recruit on the forums? No. I simply informed my constituents where i was going, and why.
The fact that, after all this region and the sitting government within it, has done to me, that region and its government doesn't believe I deserve exactly what they're asking of me, is patently ridiculous.
I once again submit my request, and, should I find myself banned, or otherwise denied, I will seek condemnation of this region by the Security Council of the World Assembly, in addition to condemnation by the same body, of each of the nations mainly involved in the injustice inflicted upon me in this ridiculous intrigue.
Let's dissect this.
New player, okay yes you were. Doesn't excuse anything.
Sneer is what you were messaging me after you left of your own will. Let's keep that bolded part in mind going forward. As for the under our noses thing, I'll go ahead and just say it at this point, it wasn't under their noses for a single second. And you can't use the whole "I didn't know what was going on" excuse as it was pretty obvious that the whole thing was illegal. You decided to take part, and you seemed to enjoy acting against the government in secret. The ability of NES, Onder, and the Balder government as a whole got proven even stronger by having your little operation exposed with such ease.
As for the King throwing you under the bus, not sure how that works. Who is he throwing you under the bus to? Himself? Anyway, all he asked for was a public apology for conspiring against the government, and you would've been free to continue serving. Instead, you had a temper tantrum, quit the region, tried to advertise your own region, (which apparently isn't doing as well as you told me in DMS), and then threw another temper tantrum in my DMs. This proved to us you were unable to admit to your faults, you were unpredictable, and you were, quite frankly, a bit immature.
So we didn't do anything to you except ask for an apology after you committed a crime that could've had you banned, just as Griff was banned. We gave you so much, an easy way out, yet you wanted to make a scene. So you chose this.
Now the fact that after all this, and after leaving on your own accord in a fit of rage, that you think you deserve any sort of apology just proves even further you are still delusional to the fact that you were in the wrong. The fact you think you have a right to have citizenship returned because you made a post or two as mayor and proposed the idea of an economy that we decided to not even move forward with is also delusional. Citizenship is a privilege in our region, not a right, and its a privilege we won't be giving to you as long as you continue to act as such.
Edit: As for a condemnation, good luck!
You demand nothing of this region.
Oh yes I'll just rejoin a region I ran away from 3 months ago, burst back onto the scene with demands and threats of condemnations if I don't get my way. There's no glaring hole in this plan of mine!
You resigned all your positions and citizenship of this region. You then forbid us forevermore from having an economic system by threat of condemnation and yes you did attempt to recruit from our forum, not inform people where you were going like you said or do the words "I invite any member of this region" & "to join me in the region I will be creating thusly" mean something different where you come from?
You will demand nothing and you will threaten no one.
And no, you were not the first to bring about the idea of mayoralty. That was part of the initial cities concept, however it was left on the side lines as we went with the idea of Princes for each city and didn't want to over saturate a new system which could cause confusion to people.
