Occitania Regional Message Board
As it is a draft, I must point out that it implies leadership is a relevant skill to tiling a floor.
The AF will be back in full force with the next three days and begin the new vote for a new Supreme Monarch.
Well, it only took you a week to tell us a timeline, after RG had asked. But, if you say you'll be back in three days, then I guess I have no choice but to believe you. However, there has been not a mention of who will be nominated to run against me for the position of Supreme Monarch. You can't vote someone out without a replacement ready and willing to go.
I've noted the quite embarrassing error, Schwabenreich. Thanks for pointing that out. Here's draft 2:
Greetings and Salutations to You, new member of NationStates. Being a new leader can be difficult at times, even feeling nigh impossible in those darkest moments. If you feel all alone in the world of NationStates, that could make every situation your nation faces appear to be worse than it actually is. However, in Occitania, for those select nations that have kept their European monarchy in power through the tumultuous history of the world, those burdens are made easier. With a community of friendly nations, Occitania is the haven for those who still believe in the tradition of royalty and the rule of monarchy. For a safe, exclusive region with much history and a bright future, join Occitania today.
To Haldasia: As Imperial Minister, head of the Imperial Matrix, I am the second in command. I may replace the Supreme Monarch, if voted out, unfit, indefinitly ceases to exist, or resigns. I am not challenging your authority but feel you are not as involved, as active as you should be or have solid solutions to bring Occitan members together and strengthen the its union.
I put my name forward as the FUTURE of Occitania and it's new Supreme Monarch.
Thank you all.
Well, at least that got a same day response. Maybe you really will be able to be active enough to bring Occitania back to life. Now that there's a definitive challenger, I wish you the best of luck, Aix. And may the best nation win.
Aix-En-Provence has the AF, the largest voting block on his side.
Of course he does. The AF is the only group to rejoin Occitania; after all, it has gotten more exciting here over the past few weeks. A welcome addition. However, at the present moment, I'm afraid that none of us may be valid members of Occitania. Depending on how you interpret Criteria Four: Be an active member or forfeit voting rights, would us Occitan members consider any of us active if there was nothing here to be active about? I'm not certain. Also, for all those who left Occitania and are now returning, those choices put you in violation of Criteria Six: Once you are a member you free to leave but may never return. Unfortunately for us all, that would all but eliminate the currently active members. I don't know if I'm allowed to do this, but until stated otherwise, I'm willing to pardon every nation that has returned and helped to begin the rejuvenation of Occitania. Welcome back, and may this be the start to a new era of Occitania, one marked by many events and much more activity than has been seen at any time in Occitan history.
I agree with you Haldasia...everyone has been inactive, distanced and disinterested. Albensburg and Schwabenreich only commented when everypne disappeared...in agreement due to everyone elses inactivity. Was is right? No, but we did it in protest. Now, the AF will regain seat of Supreme Monarch.
Occitania has been misgoverned. Other than Haldasia, Catalpha should have ejected members for inactivity. Other than a new election. we should strictly enfore the inactivity law. I believe it was 30 days. I feel 45 is more than far to be away. MIM's and Ministers should only be allowed 30 days and the Supreme Monarch should be active once a week, having only 7 days. The Supreme Monarch is the leader and must lead and be active weekly, even he or she is just checking in.
I can agree with that. Though I believe that if we are going to have varying times, we should make them shorter. Supreme Monarch gets one week. Ministers and Imperial Matrix members get two. Everyone else gets three. Two weeks should also be the standard length of time for votes to last. However, I feel that if Occitan members will be away for an extended period of time, and they announce before they'll be away, that they should be allowed to return when they can. Real life can get in the way of NationStates, and I feel that we should recognize that.
