Valhalla Regional Message Board
Okay, I'll do my best to answer!
The sitting delegate can be found at the top of the region page. In this case, it's Onore Dickedo, although that might well be changing soon, as I believe we have an election coming up.
As for endorsing them, that's fairly simple. Have your nation join the WA, go to their nation page, and there's an endorse button right at the bottom.
Regional controls are basically a control panel from with people with the appropriate permissions can do stuff like appoint regional officers, set polls, construct embassies, and change the Factbook Entry for the region. A couple other things as well, although I haven't gotten quite a close enough look at them just yet.
Turning them off, in the context here, is essentially stripping the WA delegate of his executive powers, meaning that they don't have the ability to do anything in the regional controls. It's a security measure, so that if an outside group manages to set up a delegate of their own, they wouldn't be able to do anything.
And that should pretty much be it! Hope I helped out a little ^u^
Awww.. GRO banned my new ISIS friend.. I was pretty sure that might happen though..
Thanks that was really helpful!
When I click on the "endorse" button, I just end up on my own page, not having done any endorsing. Very frustrating. Is that a bug?
So, if the regional delegate has no power, does that mean voting is unimportant?
Also how come The Celestial Realm of Goddess Relief Office has the power to do that? The Realm of GRO II is the Founder. I thought only Founders had god powers. Oh can Founders give delegate their god powers to another nation?
Mmm, I'm not certain about the first thing. You'd probably want someone with a bit more experience in matters than me.
As for the second, it's not as important, since the delegate can't mess with the region itself, but additional endorsements do give the Delegate additional voting power for WA resolutions!
And Big Gro has those powers because they're appointed as a regional officer. ROs are a thing that I only briefly mentioned, but they can be set by the founder to have any combination of regional powers, so polls, embassies, the ability to kick people out, and all that fun stuff. Since Goddess Relief Office is GRO's main, or at least most active nation, as far as I'm aware, I imagine they appointed themselves as officer so that doing administrative work within the region was less of a hassle.
I cannot seem to get the issues to name my nations leader or official religion, it's been MONTHS.
I like how you call me Big GRO. So GRO II is little GRO? XD
I just endorsed you, click on my page and see if you could endorse me back. If it doesn't work we might have to ask a Mod to look at it?
Regardless of whether regional controls are turned on or not, the delegate has the powers over the region's vote over WA resolutions. For example, for the current resolution at vote page=ga Let's say if you vote For it, (i.e. voting Yes), the count will go up by 1. But if our delegate voted for it, it will go up by 7 because ---he currently has 6 endorsements, plus his own vote.
Whoever becomes delegate has this extra 'influence' in WA affairs.
The regional controls only dictate whether he or she can ban or eject any nations. We keep it off because we are a tiny region that's easily taken over. However, if the delegate can gather 8 votes and above, it might be safe enough to enable controls.
No, not at all! GRO II is 'slightly-less-big GRO'! ^~^
How to reduce black market?
Ohh you're sweet ^_^ *hugs*
Don't ban stuff or make stuff illegal.
For example: "1 day 16 hours ago: Following new legislation in Fanggaraksa, gambling is outlawed. "
You create a black market by outlawing things people want.
I know that one child in my country was gambling in 1 day 16 hours ago and the activist protectorate child is demonstrate, and it should be limited the age.
