International Democratic Union Regional Message Board
I'll stay in the WA for the moment as the gap is only 9-8 in endorsements. Very swift changeover, though.
(Can't stay online for long now: longer post tomorrow...)
Firstly, my thanks to everybody here who's already endorsed me.
Secondly, as the election was uncontested we obviously don't have an automatic candidate for the role of Vice-President: Any volunteers?
Thirdly, are there any volunteers for the other ministerial positions?
Fourthly, I would like people here to consider the 'Arnhelm Declaration of Recruiting Standards' (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=224492&hilit=Recruiting+standards) and whether we should sign-up for this.
Fifthly _ Any other business?
If people don't want to be recruited, they can change their settings on their nation page. I don't agree with signing the Arnhelm Declaration for a multitude of reasons, but that's one of them. Another is that the IDU is neutral, and is known as such, and signing up to that may damage such neutrality. So no, we shouldn't sign up to it.
We have enough problems getting new nations to join the IDU, signing up to that is closing off more paths we can't really afford to.
Also we have a forum that is incredibly underused. It'd be nice if we could take such regional discussions there instead of having them on the RMB. Otherwise there's no point in having a forum.
Hi, I'm a puppet of East Olympia - probably won't say much, especially tonight. Just wanted to introduce myself.
“Hrarroom!” ( = “Greetings”), and a hearty "Welcome to the IDU", for The People's Republic of Poorly Fitted Underwear.
*(sends over a gift basket of Bears Armed’s produce, including a large jar of high-quality honey and a large bottle of high-quality maple syrup as well as assorted fruits and nuts)*
Sanctaria: Yes, we can take those discussions to the forum now that the initial announcement has been made here, but because the forum is little-used I decided that starting here first would be a good idea. I'll start some threads tomorrow, when I'll be able to work from the library... which, unlike my current location, is air-conditioned. Too hot to concentrate properly right now.
TDSR: Read the TG and, again, will respond from cooler conditions tomorrow.
In accordance with the results of the poll, I have extended posting rights on our RMB to the founders & delegates of regions with which we have embassies.
(0 votes for no extension at all, 6 votes for this option, 0 votes for letting everybody from those other regions post here)
Greetings I.D.U. I, on behalf of all of Forest, would like to extend my greetings and warm regards, as well as my thanks for extending the privilege of posting on your RMB to me. Best wishes and here's to the continued warm regional relations between Forest and International Democratic Union.
In accordance wtih the region's expressed wishes (your votes already cast in the GA being 3 'For' vs 4 'Against'), and with only eleven hours (during all but the first of which I will have to be offline) left until voting closes, I have cast my vote as this region's delegate against the proposed resolution "Child Pornography Ban".... which is obviously going to pass by a landslide anyhows.
