Forest Regional Message Board
My economy is imploded, so I would be thrilled to have a thriving basket-weaving sector. Or...any sector!
Since we're allowed to provide custom banners, I was thinking it might be neat to have one or more custom Forest banners that we could all use (not compulsory, of course). Any interest?
(I'm not an artist, so somebody else might be a better choice to actually create the banners. Although I could always take a photo of a forest and crop it to the correct size...)
Nice idea! The theme should be rahter obvious :) (though my country is above the treeline)
Free Bears in the Wood sounds like heaven
Mahalo, great nations.
Thank you. It certainly suits urrs...
Regarding the current poll, Ransium what sort of regions do you envisage requesting embassies with that wouldn't comply with the rules? Is it ones that would comply, were they to apply, but don't because of the need to send a telegram, which they won't have done? Or something else?
Yeah, great question. So obviously I bring embassy requests to forest rarely and when I do it is always with other large old regions. I guess the environmental connection is what I'm worried about, for example with Texas or Antarctica I'm not sure how I would have implemented the environmental connection (Antarctica implemented the Eco-friendly tag after we established embassies).
Basically, my feeling is these requirements are meant to be a filter so we are not constantly voting on embassy requests, not a shackle so the delegate cannot request regions which they feel are best for forests greater good, but I wanted to democratically assure this is forests policy. I also wanted clarity because someone mentioned applying these requirements to existing embassies, something I don't think we should do but again I wanted q democratic consensus.
Well, of the 3 earlier polls only two of them are actual requirements they need to meet anyway. The eco-friendly one, with the way the poll ended, is just so we've got something to consider when it is put to a vote. So long as the other requirements are met (which it sounds as if they will be) then I'm sure we can trust your judgement as to other regions you may wish to seek embassies with. For any future elections, what a prospective delegate might do could be a topic of discussion.
As you may have already noticed. I've written a bulletin about about requesting embassies with Forest which reflects our discussions in the past month and pinned it to our RMB. Let me know what you think and any changes you'd like me to make.
