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. is a Citizen of Neazland the South Pacific. wrote: Neazland 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.

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. is a Legislator and Local Councillor in Volaworand the South Pacific. wrote: Volaworand This commendation is pretty thin on details, and browsing the dispatches mentioned, while admirable, didn't appear worthy of a commendation. From the World is a Tactical Officer in Shy Guyia 10000 Islands's military. They argued on XKI's forums: wrote: Shy Guyia 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). is a GA author and Citizen of Boston Castle the North Pacific.
