    Regional Poll • How do you think the Delegate should be elected (unofficial poll)

    The Atlantis Protector of Orangutang fiction wrote:This is an unofficial poll and will not change how the Delegate is selected.

    Voting opened 8 hours ago and will close in 2 days 15 hours. Open to residents. You cannot vote as you are not logged in.

    Recent polls: “Should Atlantis join the United Regions?”“Do you use the NationStates++ Extension?”“Shall the Resolution be passed?”

    The vote on whether or not to join the United Regions has concluded.

    70% voted in favour, 30% voted against. Therefore, the Resolution passed and the Delegate is instructed to make the necessary arrangements.

    WA Members voted 66.7% in favour, 33.3 % against.

    What should the next poll be? Want to find out how atlantis feels about this or that? What their favourite animal or dish is? Send me a TG and I'll put the poll up.

    Is there any regional disadvantages to not being a WA member?

    Pretty difficult to climb the influence ranks - nothing other than that.

    Wow. We've got over 125 nations. When I first got here, there was roughly 80.

    I'm Proud to be one of those 45 noobs :D

    The Fourteen Billion Lemmings of Lemmingtopias wrote:Just to weigh in on the voting situation, there have only been two polls relating to regional legislation under the current system (including the current one) and both times - up to the current count - have had both a majority of WA's and non-WA's vote. So even if puppets had voted (which I doubt by looking at the nation names) they certainly haven't affected the outcome.

    That's not to say that we shouldn't have a think about how to make it a better system at some point - just that no-one has felt it is a priority enough to propose anything yet.

    On the matter of Kings, the ten spots are now filled. There wont be any more than ten and there are no provisions to replace them. Essentially if one resigns or their nation CTE's they'd be replaced, probably by whomever has the most support. Perhaps the ability to replace Kings is also something that should be debated but no-one has felt it a priority yet (Other than the first three or four on the list, no-one of them have been in the position that long).

    So basically, you held a contest to decide on the three vacancies? What if every couple of months one of the Kings seats expired and there was a fun contest to choose the replacement?

    I see what you mean about voting. Perhaps I could propose a resolution on the matter?

    Is it fair that only WA's can choose the Delegate? My WA is elsewhere - so to vote on the leader of the region I have to stop what I'm doing there and bring it here? Just doesn't seem fair to me.

    I like that idea.

    The Republic of Terradora wrote:I see what you mean about voting. Perhaps I could propose a resolution on the matter?

    Of course. Anyone can propose a resolution. Publish it as a dispatch and send a link to The Ten Kingdoms of The City of Atlantis.

    Probably not. But is it fair that non-WA's get a vote on their Delegate (who votes on their behalf in the World Assembly)? How could we make it fairer for both sides? If we were to elect a Delegate through a vote, how do you ensure that puppets don't vote, a concern you have already raised? How do you ensure that the elected Delegate gets enough endorsements - I'd think carefully before trying to enforce that all WA's to endorse a Delegate. It seems a divisive concept.

    What if the the candidates for the WA election were the two most endorsed? That means the WAs choose the candidates and everyone gets a say on who wins. Does that make it fair? Dont have to make people endorse the winner but encourage it. They dont take office until they have actually become delegate so if they dont have the trust of the WAs they aren't going to be take office. So the WAs select the candidates by endorsing people, everyone gets a say on who wins and the WAs have to actually approve the winner.

    Youll see how I intend to stop puppets voting when I propose my voting legislation ;)

    Joyful verses of national songs can be heard all across the capital city of Dislveislt, Gaumagellan, as Grand Duke Isaaokos returns to it with the 1st, 4th and 5th Modern Battalions of Dislveislt. Read more about it in our regional newspaper, The Trident.

    Hey guys, I'm out of jail now :}

    Disregard: YAY
