Aumeltopia wrote:Creating the dark theme is a pretty major achievement. Those here who are talking about how the commendation is "only about one archive" or whatever... the main thing being alluded to with all the light/dark references is the NS site theme that Northrop-Grumman created.

Neazland wrote:Hard work put into nationstates and although the dark theme may be confusing (in my opinion) It adds a variety to NS and Northrop Grumman has been in NS for a very long time and has put hard work into that time. Helped with the record keeping. I believe that Northrop Grumman deserves a commendation.

Honeydewistania wrote:I disagree strongly with the ‘we are commending them for this but we’re not saying it, tee hee!’ nonsense. The rules are the rules, even if they suck, but I’m still in favour as in spite of the dark theme not being included I think they are a worthy nominee

Eastern New England wrote:Even though the proposal reads weird out of context, creating Dark Theme along with keeping index(es) on nations' leaders and capital cities updated for the past one and a half decade is certainly commendable. I'm inclined to vote FOR.

Doge Land wrote:Dark theme? DARK THEME? dark theme kills more per year than discord light theme More seriously, half the resolution is about an archive, which is nice, but I never use it, because when I go look at the information of nations that are relevant to me, I look at their nation page or a dispatch.

Shy Guyia is a Tactical Officer in 10000 Islands's military. They argued on XKI's forums:

Shy Guyia wrote:I don't really think something can be considered well-written if I need to ask Makdon what something actually means. You can't type the words dark theme but this is a very poor way to dance around it. Secondly, the part about UNITE does not seem to be relevant at all? It is a roleplaying thing NG used only a few times in one roleplay and is hosted on a decently read dispatch. It is not one of the big indexes but just a good bit of worldbuilding, which isn't really the most commendable thing (especially since the rest of the proposal is not about worldbuilding at all).

Boston Castle is a GA author and Citizen of the North Pacific. On TNP's forums, they stated:

Boston Castle wrote:Perhaps I just don’t see the point in things like the archives and what not, but this nominee doesn’t seem all that commendable to me. Against.
