Regional Cabinet appointments:
Foreign Minister: The Dark Star Republic
Minister of Immigration: Sciongrad
(Both of the above two appointments are currently provisional: Any members of the region who object to either of those choices now have one week in which to call for a vote of no confidence against the appointees -- needing a proposer and a seconder -- in the thread http://s10.zetaboards.com/IDU/topic/7510522/1/?x=0#post8033005 .
The position of Vice-Delegate is still vacant...
OOC there was just something (hard to pin-down) about the wording that I just didn't like, and pornography just isn't a big thing for Bears IC (because of the importance of olfactory cues, which such material obviously couldn't incorporate very well, in Ursine sexuality...) so the national government had doubts about whether the matter was really serious enough to justify the intrusion on national sovereignty. If I'd only been voting for the Bears alone then I'd probably have abstained, but as I was voting as Delegate and with the regional balance against (even if only 3:4) switching to against instead seemed the right thing to do.
That was my first 'Sports' thing in NS, too, although far enough back that there wasn't yet a separate section of the forum for such matters.
And that reminds me, I need to get the Bears' entrants for this summer's games sorted out too. RP for the World Cup qualifiers has been taking priority over that (and the Bears are doing quite well, so far: after the first five qualifying matches they head their group, in which they were the third seed, with a 4W/1D/0L run that gives them a 2-point lead over the next-most-successful team [the groups' first seed, and the only side to have managed a draw against them as of now]...) instead. Ah well, my World Cup for the last few cycles has involved a Multiversal Crisis that includes time-warps, so using exactly the same set of entrants as I did last Summer could actually be justified if necesary...
The Olympics are very fun, and I definitely will try to enter if I have time, and would encourage other IDU nations to do so. Good luck to Sanctaria and the Bears!
I have zero idea how it all works, so I'm not expecting anything but experience moving forward.
I was in an Olympics. I even won a bronze medal. I milked it for all it was worth. Then I signed up for the next Olympics and got nothing. It was all a fluke. :P
I've never really dabbled in NS sports, but I might give it a go eventually. It's like a little corner of NS that I've never even considered before, so it should be fun trying something completely new.
