| ENDO Cap | TWP has low nations. | Defenders. | How TFNOL met his wife. | Chicken rise | Thaecia and east pacific.
You might know the first one already, yes you know! It's the North pacific with a 846 endo cap, the North pacific is then followed by
Southern World Assembly Initiative
Anyways let's talk about the others we didn't mention yet, after the west pacific is Lazarus if you endorse the CEO, which is kind of the WA delegate, then we have Osiris with 55, if you only endorse the Pharaoh.
Setting flexible endorsement caps.
There are reasons both for and against having a flexible endorsement cap. In 2020, NationStates experienced two surges thanks to Reddit and Drew Durnil. In the case of the latter, the boom made enforcement of a fixed endorsement cap troublesome, leading TSP’s CRS to implement a soft moratorium on cap enforcement due to the large number of nations who were benignly violating it, and inevitably implement a “dynamic endorsement cap” in June 2020 with Regulation Two.
The flexible endorsement cap also addresses the summer lull that NationStates typically experiences and adjusts accordingly whenever the endorsements of TNP’s Delegate or TSP’s least endorsed CRS member decrease. By having a flexible endorsement cap, a region’s security institution does not need to discuss as often whether to raise or lower the endorsement cap.
One drawback of implementing a flexible endorsement cap is calculating whether a nation is violating the cap. In the case of TSP, an automated dispatch of the Southern World Assembly Initiative (SWAN) can quickly calculate and determine whether a nation is violating the endorsement cap, allowing the CRS to respond in a timely and effective manner.🟥
Well as we know about ejections we can move on to other reasons, is that since they eject lots of Nations, it doesn't benefit them but the Rejected realms, but why? Since the rejected realms gathers nations which are either banned or ejected from a region, and since of the 150 ejections by the West pacific, the Rejected realms grows because of that, but there is good things about the West pacific, lots of nations who have been at the west pacific for a long time like to help other nations who are new, by providing a guide and telling them what to do, and treating them nicely.
There is way more reasons why the west pacific is a bottom feeder such as the fact they don't allow roleplay, which for some nations triggers them so they move, mostly the reasons why Nations founded in the west pacific mostly leave sometimes just because of the rule they can't roleplay. But even though of not being able to roleplay they do have some cool events, such as karaoke friday, where you get to post old song lyrics in the board and the link too! Also punday monday, where you get to shot off your puns to the west pacific and even get a chance to win, and also to be put in the hall of puns book!
So remember how South Pacific was raided by the black hawks, and was occupied by them for one week? We'll be talking about that today. First thing in the raid was the black hawks had maintained a delegate with over 100 endorsements a hard goal for defenders to beat, since many nations tried to but in the end the black hawks made a strategy named banjecting, which was basically to ban any defender units which join south pacific to make sure they don't endorse the defender delegate.They did that just to maintain their regional security for the occupation of South pacific, anyways defenders tried update bending, how does that work? So first fact is a a group of nations flood a nation they own, it doesn't matter if it was new, refounded or even very influential. Then in a point in a update they trigger a region and target to raid, in order to cause additional variance and make it harder to calculate the update time. This had the effect of making the defenders miss the update because the triggers they had set didn’t work properly.
In the end, TBH declared victory on August 10 and ended the occupation. So, what does that ‘coalition’ victory mean for the defenders? While it is a significant diplomatic and military defeat of the defender sphere, there is no indication that the defenders are at any insurmountable structural disadvantage.
As it has already been suggested by Ballotonia, defenders could try ‘update unbending’, where they would create their own ‘buffer region’ in order to control their triggers and prevent raiders from tampering with them. Administrator intervention, as some defenders have advocated for, is not the solution to this new raider tactic – as it is not influencing update times, it can be countered.
Successful liberations are still possible. History has shown again and again that defenders, if they set their minds to it, always find a way to counter raider tactics. They were simply legitimately outplayed on this occasion.
I know this sounds weird but hey! Let's talk about it. I've been married to wonderful wife for the last 4 years! And let's start 15 years in 2005. I went to a bar with my friends to celebrate finding a new job (current one as a satellite engineer) and we got some drinks. I then wanted some water so I called the waiter and asked him for water. My friends asked me " do you think you'll ever get a girlfriend?" Then I repleid maybe, maybe not. Then one of my friend who's name is Joush got up and went to the washroom. The waiter then came to our table as I got up suddenly I slammed into the waiter as the tray fell down with the glasses it spilled on who would be my future wife. I then apologised to her and gave her a wipe as I was drenched in water. Soon Josh we like to call him that for his short name cam back and laughed at me and said, chance. He then left the bar as I asked my future wife to come with me and have a drink she said yes and left. We then talked about each others lives and what they do my wife was also a satellite engineer.
Soon we went to this cafe named "starbucks" where we sat down and got some water. I then asked her if you wanted to meet again and replied yes. She left after five minutes and the day I went home I texted my friend Before going to sleep asking how will I get her to be my wife? Then he suggested a plan the plan which would make me not single anymore. The next morning my friends told me to walk apss her and they would distract then they came out like weird people and grabbed her bag I then came punched them as the ran my future wife thanked me as soon I walked her to her building. Then my friends came out as they said: see it worked! Soon in relief I went to work.
After that me and my future wife went on lots of dates in nine months we married! She gave birth to our first child in 2007 on our second marriage anniversary we named him "mark" who is studying physics and engineering right now today. Our second child was in 2008 it was a girl we named her mary who now studies medicine. I know the way I met her was strange and I thank that waiter for doing that or else I would've still been single, I just want to thank my wife for everything she has done for our family.
Remember how long North pacific held the most nations in the world? That record has been beaten by the mighty chicken overlords which was not meant to be that good, and also a odd appearance since their delegate has tiny amount of endorsements compared to a major regions they also have a inactive RMB which makes no sense for a major region to have, but anyways here's the story of their rise. The chicken overlords is not really a feeder region it's like an embassy collector such as other regions like Traveling Wilburys and also The Embassy which are the most popular right now. So how did chicken overlords go from hunkey donkey zero to absolutely hero? So first reason is Womble puppets. Let's say you search womble you'll get thousands of results. These womble puppets are made to go to the chicken overlords everyday about hundreds are made with different numbers. The biggest reason for their rise is mass puppet creating that means nations make tons of puppets everyday and move them to the chicken overlords each day which helps boosting the regions population.
The also very odd thing is many nations which want lots of nations in their regions would usually send telegrams and waste their money on stamps which uses lots of money, so the chicken overlords tried puppet making. Players will do anything to make their region bigger and better. This is an unusual way of making a region bigger; it is rare for puppets to be created for such a simple use. But what a region doesn't gain from this is the community that a region with more individual nations has, or the WA voting power that sometimes comes with larger regions. Chicken Overlords worked towards this goal of becoming the largest region in the world, and they have achieved that, but what's next? Will the region attempt to continue it's growth, surpassing 10,000 nations, or even more. Will the region stagnate and it's position as largest region fluctuate as the number of active players change. Will it plummet once the puppets CTE? To be honest, this isn't really that worrying for most unless if those puppets are used for N-day in less than a month's time
Ever since the east pacific has elected libertanny as their delegate they have made major success with strides and alliances like embassy's and with delegate marrbuk also, a recent embassy was the thaecia pact called song of poems, something liek that anyways more about it The east pacific normally chooses regions with lots of nations and user founded regions in this month they choose Thaecia. Marrabuk initially reached out to Thaecia to establish relations sometime in October, right after the coup occurred. Negotiations were favorable Thaecia and the East Pacific had established consulates with each other by Janurary. In March, relations were furthered when an in-game embassy was established between both regions.
While the building of relationships was certainly fast, it was not without merit. Both communities share various similarities, such as having a love of memes, being democratic, and being generally inclusive communities. With their similarities to each other, the outpour of support each region has for each other is to be expected!
Soon both regiosn thought of a treaty to make and establish suggestions began in early june and soon the treaty in early august witth a huge vote with 94% of the vote for in august.In order to specify the special bond between the East Pacific and Thaecia, a poem named “Poem of the Greats” was included as the treaty’s preamble. In addition, the treaty avoided the use of treaty templates often utilized by regions ironing out treaties, with The East Pacific and Thaecia opting to write their own unique treaty instead. With these two facts in mind, it is obvious both regions sought to build a special treaty for their unique friendship.
WIth great pleasure, I want to say for the second ever Nationstates national post, which will come every week, I hope this Newspaper goes far just like the other Ones, And I hope that we can get lots of people reading this, I also want to thank the three nations who brought up courage to actually help write this Newspaper which takes a very long time, since of getting News from Local sources, I also thank nations which helped our Team for Sites where they could find Information, and I hope the best to all for The nationstates National post.
