Texas Regional Message Board
No I understand I was just curious that's all.
Ok, now that we have that cleared up! All Players in Texas who do not have a World Assembly nation here or somewhere else, needs to get one! We can give the full blown "Why join the World Assembly?™" speech if you need more convincing!
Thank you Fris & Kenny for helping out with that! Our new Secretary of World Assembly Affairs is getting a workout on his first day on the job! And, in case you misplaced your scorecard, No TV and No Beer = Omigodtheykilledkenny. He switched up puppets in mid discussion.
Alrighty Mr. NewTexas, i dislike the idea of forcing my own beliefs on another nation, just as much as id hate them to influence my own. So long story short...
Im gonna have to ask for The Speech.
Yeah, forgot to log back into my Texas nation. Luckily, embassy-posting allows me to be anywhere, anytime...within the AO-sphere, at least. :D
You can always create a puppet for the sole purpose of being in the WA so that your main nation is not effected by any WA resolutions. A big part about being in the WA is defense of Texas, but I will let BT give you the whole speech.
Ok, since someone asked for it, this would be a fine opportunity for us to explain why you should join the World Assembly!
There are many advantages to World Assembly membership. If you indulge us and let us wax philosophical for a bit, we will give you the "Why join the World Assembly?" speech.
First off, the gist of this entire game is words. Generally you "give" words by posting and sending telegrams; you "get" words in return. If you don't say anything to anyone then often no one will say anything to you. Everybody's style is different. Many are content to sit back and watch, many like to speak up and make their opinions known or comment on things in the game, their lives or whatever.
So, in this game, all you and your nation really have to "give" are words. There are no prizes for anything at all, just general enjoyment of interaction. What many national leaders have found out is that there are several benefits to participation in the World Assembly. Once a nation joins the WA, they "get" something, actually a couple of things. First off, they get the ability to endorse other nations. This is something one nation can actually "give" another nation. This can be used to show approval of whatever, their flag, their form of government, their motto, their name, or anything. Some endorse recklessly, some endorse sparingly; it is your choice. Another thing you "get" from WA membership is you "get" to vote on WA Resolutions and to make your voice known to the rest of the world. This is a noble thing, shaping the course of the world. And lastly, you "get" the ability to assist in increasing Texas security from invaders and others that would disrupt all that is Texas. These are some things you can "do" with endorsements.
These are only some observations we have made about this game after playing it for over 11 years. It may be true, it may not.
That was "The World Assembly Speech".
Id love to help defend this region, but if i join i accept that i have to submit to the legislation of decisions that may not be my own.
And that, our friend, is exactly why we suggested creating a puppet nation you do not care about like The Lone Star Republic of New Connorstantinople WA Nation and let it join.
**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new Security Council Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!
The new Resolution is called:
"Repeal "Liberate Coalition Of Freedom"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Category: Repeal Resolution: SC#154 Proposed by: Lexicor
Description: WA Security Council Resolution #154: Liberate Coalition Of Freedom shall be struck"...
<see page=sc for full text>
Ok, we have a Repeal for a change! It definitely qualifies as an Insta-RepealÃÂ$(1 s(Bince it passed two days ago. At that time, Texans pretty much hated it with 0 for and 4 against. No ambivalence there. Well, it looks like its is still one big mess of invader-on-invader action playing out in the Security Council. Ugh! Maybe the text of the Resolution can explain it better. We just want this one gone. As a reminder, the issue here is the REPEAL of the existing law. A vote AGAINST this Resolution means you are in favor of the existing law and do not want it repealed. A vote FOR this Resolution means you want the law off the books. NewTexas will go on record as FOR on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.
The Texas response was flat on the last SC vote -- Liberate Coalition Of Freedom -- which was passed after gaining 63.88% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 4 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 4 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!
Note: NewTexas has already voted on this Resolution in advance of publicly-expressed opinions. We did this at the urging of many leaders in the World Assembly. As we have been saying for years, Texas is a force in the WA. Many feel that Texas can influence the overall vote if it votes first. There is an observed "lemming effect" that occurs during voting. Apparently a large number of votes are cast based on whichever side of the issue is leading when voters vote. Therefore, to get the most impact from our vote, we are now voting first. We will re-evaluate our original vote at midnight prior to the current vote. As always, we are open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. Comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. Please make your voice heard on the current issue either on this message board or on our offsite message board. But, by all means, please vote on the WA Page!
If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it.
All WA Member nations please vote. Please make your opinions known in Texas by 11:00pm Friday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00pm Texas Time on Saturday the 23rd. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 0 Votes AGAINST: 0
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
I think ill do just that.
