Stargate Regional Message Board
Tomorrow is today? You got one of them there Ancient time machines, boi?
Wrapper, you made me want to watch Stargate again :p. Season 1 Pilot Episode here we go.........
Are you a GCR?
Way farther back than you think! Regional founders were added to the game in April 2003, so Stargate was founded sometime between November 2002 and April 2003.
So true. I know founders were in the game by Aug or Sep 2003. On a side note, I was waiting to see if Sanjurika was going to enter into a 'Userite'/'Feederite' diatribe. But then I saw the marsupial connection and realized that is truly the greater evil. Anti-marsupialism was birthed in NS in April 2004.
I seriously recommend taking a look at the forum thread for the SC if possible.
Anyway, I'm now going to break down the proposal because, well, I'm mentioned in it and therefore feel obligated to do so even though I am doubtful there is much of a point. Italics are quotes from the proposal.
Recognizing that the nations of the North Pacific aren't at all friendly of diplomatic with eachother,
Some are. For example, I have very positive relations with my allies.
Noting that the North Pacific Winter Olympics are an upcoming event,
Not really condemnation material but at least factually correct.
Noting that the New Haudenosaunee Confederacy wasn't aloud to compete due to their nation's culture
I have to say, it's allowed. Additionally, no, the reason for that was primarily OOC. Also absolutely nowhere was this aspect of culture mentioned until today to my awareness.
Understanding that the nations of the North Pacific (generally) don't believe that the opinions and voices of some nations don't matter (including the New Haudenosaunee Confederacy and Chillestia)
Technically you used a double negative and therefore are saying we do believe they matter, but that is besides the point. It is true there are some people who's voices are perceived as less important than others. Spammers, for example. Trolls, for example. Also it's ironic you use Chillestia as an example, a nation who you previously tried to condemn and have yourself ignored the voice of by occupying them for some time.
Noting that some nations of the North Pacific claim that the region has strong democracy, even though there are some non-democratic nations (including Kyoki Chudoku)
The region claims democracy in its OOC government. Nowhere does it say "every nation in TNP is a democracy" or "you may only RP as democratic nations in TNP".
Understanding that the nations of the North Pacific don't allow citiznes of any nations to have fun (including themselves),
I cannot even muster the energy to explain how utterly incorrect that is.
Noting that the nations of the North Pacific don't appreciate certain cultures (including the New Haudenosaunee Confederacy),
I'm not sure whether to take that ICly or OOCly. IC, yes true. OOC, perhaps we do dislike some cultures that are perceived as potentially offensive to us.
Condemnation is something reserved for regions and nations that have made a huge impact. Infamous raiders and the absolute best at RPing as villainous nations. Please refrain from trying to condemn everything and everyone you have a negative opinion of. It won't work.
NHC has a history of writing proposals with trivial reasons. He also reported Western Vapia to the NS mods for harassment. One can see the full proposal with its GenSec status here. •

A Lahos Airlines passenger jet traveling from Lahos, Akhara crashed while landing Saturday at Franshov International Airport, smashed into pieces and caught fire, killing almost all of the athletes on board.
Smoke billowed out of holes in the fuselage of the Boeing 787 on Saturday afternoon as firefighters rushed to douse the wreckage and passengers scrambled to safety down inflated escape chutes. The plane’s tail, landing gear and one of its engines were ripped off.
“It hit with its nose , spun down the runway, and plumeted,” said one witness, Vasily Gagarich 32. Despite incredible damage to the plane, left dismembered and scarred, with large chunks of its body burned away, some reportedly were still climbing out the wreckage.
No word yet on the rest of the athletic team on the flight were reported. Though as many 92 people were on board, and 80 of them were athletes.
The Akharan state has yet to make a statement on the incident. Though, the International Olympic Group were informed, hours after the crash.
The president of the IOG, an Akharan, says "I mourned when I heard the news. This is the worst time I can talk, but I must say this to everyone... Keep your spirits up, and pray... pray for their safety.
Prime Minsiter Artyom Lesnoft took this situation on a live broadcast from the capital. Saying "I am in despair... It is incredibly hearthbreaking. To the Akharan people and the world, let us all give a moment of silence to those who were lost"
A chilling 30 seconds of silence elapsed, and the broadcast ended.
The Ministry of Transport reported on the incident, saying it did know the cause of the crash at first, and the why it went down. The investigators of the Transport Ministry, after 3 hours led to no conlusion but a statement than anything. Minister Anton Sidorov told the National Investigation Agency (NIA) that the plane had been down due to a mechinical error.
Reports are told that the ATC tower had lost contact with 881 and that the pilots did not maintain instructions. The GPWS was not operative during most of the flight, tells ATC, Yegor Kruschev. "It did not work correctly, therefore the pilots had manually operate the aircraft."
"We also lost frequency with the aircraft when it entered the airspace." Though the Airport's monitors track if any aircraft are lost, some tell us that they shut off, interestingly. Though still, a mechinical error or pilot error, many blame on the air traffic controllers for "not doing their jobs" And that they were the cause of the miscommunication.
The recorded conversation of the flight and the tower is yet to be released, as well as a black box transcript (If recovered)
The aircraft crashed on runway 32, bouncing and spininng into a tarmac sign. The plane slid off to the grass, and the fire caught with it.
Many witnessed the crash, as it was close to the airport terminals. The airport currently is on lockdown, and terminal C, is evacuating.
No reports on the condition of the aircraft as of now.•
