Atlantian Oceania Regional Message Board
Hosting a sporting event is different then being active in the region, however.
I'm not arguing that Taaru was the most active AO nation of all time (or even in their own time) but they were a nation that existed when the waterways were being named, they were an active nation at the time and they contributed to the AO Forum in the more II/region building/non-sportsy related way.
Kinitaria on the other hand, while they did host an AOCAF, had less all time contributions to the AO Forum and exclusively contributed to AOCAF/sports related items.
I'm not saying I'm opposed to the name changing, but I would say it would probably have to be something that is at least RP'd either in the AO Forum or at the very least ghosted into the AO Forum after being RP'd elsewhere; for sake of history/documentation. We have lots of references on the AO Map to former nations who had varying levels of importance/activity in their time. There isn't a hard fast rule to why one nation finally gets removed over another its just kind of a 'feel' thing sometimes and, quite honestly, the reason it wasn't taken too much consideration six days into your AO residency was because you were six days into your AO residency. I'm sure we'd all be welcome to working with you on an RP about this topic.
Also for reference you can do searches for the history of old nations on the AO Forum just by entering their nation name (user name) and making sure in your search settings you select "Posts From.... Any Date" opposed to "Last 30 days" which seems to be the default.
Good luck, Qads. I've beaten you in football. And now I'll beat at hockey.
Happy late birthday!
So I heard the tragic news we send our condolences
Nah, it's time for confetti! Someone's got the obituaries!
On the note of naming conventions, you could do the strange isolationist thing and just call certain things certain other names - just means that no one else gets to recognize what you're talking about half of the time when you saying "GIT OFF MY BLURBLARB!" (owait, that's confusing all of the time). Anyway, stop putting your trash in my Blurblarb!
Can we have the timezones? I heard we had them once. I can design them on the map.
Oh really? Good. Something to add realism (though not entirely).
Guys you don't have to speculate
The AO Forum literally serves as a history book. Thats why we put stuff in there for the record :)
Just go to the search function, type 'timezone' and you see the timezones... on a map, as well as a thread where all the decisions about timezones were made.
I know we don't use the forum as much now that there is a dedicated forum for NS Sports and we don't do as much non-sport RP... but that doesnt mean we have to forget everything and start over :) Now if we want to change the timezones by all means start a new thread. But this is the second discussion in as many days that folks could have been more informed from the start by making a simple ao forum search on the topic :D
