Some ideas about map "problem".
For Cartographer office this could be hard to draw,but we could do "general update via satelites" which would make map look like today's maps when one side's piece appears on other side (Aliaska) and our sea area would be smaller-allowing more space for nations and we could add some more islands which (until next update) would be nameless.
Interesting idea bringing up the constitution if that is something that people are interested we have a Forum (not that it's used) but it might be time to revitalize that point if you're thinking of having a constitution I for one think it is a very interesting idea. However I don't think it can be reasonably discussed on the RMB; it should be open for nations that want to participate in making it not just grouped around a few.
Map: It hasn't been updated for a while to my knowledge and most of the time nations do become water masses but I think shifting some nations around would be better rather than just filling in nations as water.
Also, just one last thing; for those of you who haven't read the "news" section and issue contest is going on, meaning you get to write an issue and it may be selected so some of the more creative types (rather anybody really) should check it out.
I went to a Tangerine Dream concert last night. They played an excerpt from Phaedra. Awesome.
Okay so the constitution issue seems to have gotten a lot of positive feedback. I can certainly accept a constitution which formalizes what has mostly been informal and regulates election. I think many of the more controversial or not yet accepted bits should be voted on here through polls, but Karock is right much the writing and drafting does need to take place on the forum (side note it's great to see you back Karock!).
I don't think I can or legitimately should play a major roll in the drafting and writing of the constitution. I will be happy to provide feedback, facilitate identifying and voting on the controversial bits, etc. But the sitting executive should not be the major player in writing a document regulating executive power. I also do not think one single nation should be the only major writer. Since CE has been the most vocal proponent of this perhaps they could organize a group of nations to start outlining/drafting/writing one on the forum?
A constitution can also embrace, legislative, judicial, administrative & moral regulations and rights.
Could and, I believe, should. Your mileage may vary...
Also, if you have the time, Isocracy of Liberal Liberals, I would invite you to help. I can't start tonight, but tomorrow...
Thank you. I really appreciate the gesture. However, I am the representative of Eladen here and I believe taking part in any form other than an advisory capacity to the Constitutional efforts would be deemed a conflict of interest.
As Forest is an open region, it might be in the best interests of all of us if I refrained from doing anything more than advising.
So will the drafting of constitution take place on the forum?
Yes, I assume so. I can now set that up if you wish.
