Insanely vexed Goblins wrote:hey now that i'm part of this region could you guys introduce yourselves and your nations? i kinda don't know anyone here

Hi! I'm Hannes, a science nerd and part-time origamist and educational youtuber (I am currently just recording the videos). I love reading, quantum physics, playing music and sports. My nation is just a bunch of molecules who fled the tyranny of the opressive pineapple king (full story coming soon!) and live in giant eggshells left behind by the now extinct Pineapplesaurus.

QUESTION OF THE DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? (real or fictional)

IRL I'm happy where I live right now; for a fictional place I'd probably choose somewhere in Refugia.

I am now opening candidacy for the Councillor of the Interior, tasked with facilitating engagement, providing regional broadcasts, running polls and overseeing a survivable discussion environment over the RMB. The term runs from Feb 29th to June 28th.

I am officially anouncing my candidancy for the councillor of Interior affairs.
I pledge that if I'm elected, I will make some (hopefully) neat polls and keep peace on the RMB by removing all unwelcome and rude posts. I will also try to contribute to banding the region together by keeping up lively discussions here. Although I have no previous experience of administration in this big a region, I hope that I can succeed in contributing to the Refugi culture and history if I'm elected. I am rather active in NationStates and am confident that I will fulfill my administrative responsibilities.

For everyone else, this is the last day to announce candidacy for Councillor of the Interior, so speak up if you want to run!

Question of the DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

What are the three things you would bring with you to a deserted island?

A boat, 50 kg. of canned food and a smartphone so I could put Liphia in to vacation mode.

Tbh Irl I actually live very well in Barcelona, but mayby I could move to another northern region of Spain to live, herding goats and growing some potatoes XDDDD Fictional I would love to say Yharnam but I don't want to die that quickly, so maybe I would live in the Lovecraftian Dreamlands or Runeterra XD

My laptop, some water, and my town

Hi! I just joined and have been searching for the way to make a post for 5 minutes.
Yeah I'm dumb.

Welcome! Let us know if you have any questions. The site is kind of hard to get used to.

A retractable leash with one end clipped to my house, strawberries, and fresh water

Also, ima leave to leave to make my own region. Peace

What are the three things you would bring with you to a deserted island?

1. A sailboat— I know how to sail, so it’s the most obvious boat choice. Worse case scenario there’s no wind, a bad storm, or the boat is broken beyond simple repair, but it means you have ropes, wood, and tarps— shelter— and if there aren’t any trees and one gets really desperate, firewood. Tarps can also be used to catch rain for drinking water, or let seawater evaporate for salt, which can be good for cleaning out wounds.

2. A fishing rod— assuming I’m stuck on the island (or I want to leave on the boat) I’d need a sustainable food source. Plus, fishing line is fairly strong, and quite useful. It makes good floss.

3. A satellite phone— these offer coverage just about everywhere on the surface of the earth, which makes them a great survival tool, even if you have absolutely no idea where you are. (Good satellite phones have a gps-connected sos feature which broadcasts the user’s location.)

1. A Teleportation Portal (or at least an autopilot airplane)
2. Wifi Router With Plug (Cause There Are Outlets On Tress FYI)
3. My PC (but save my geometry dash progress to pc first tho)

Real: The Philipines. Nice weather, nice people.
Fictional: Pluto. I'd like to turn it into a planet again. Also, perhaps I could recruit Fwifwo to fight the Galactic Overlords.

Kraljevstvo Rata wrote:What are the three things you would bring with you to a deserted island?

1. My Tfillin (also called Phylacteries in English), a religious item. I don't don it daily, but I'd feel forlorn without it.
2. A pen and a huge notebook. I'd write a diary or a book or something to keep me busy.
3. A Short-Wave radio, so I don't feel completely cut off from civillization.

Welcome GadzTopia, Yantico, Xothelia, Aahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (what a mood), Oolacilia, and Terragosta to Refugia! I hope you enjoy your stay. If it applies to you pay attention to the rest of this message:

If you have any questions about the region or how NationStates works feel free to leave it here on the RMB! You can also join our Discord server found at the top of the page within our region description. We're all friendly and don't bite!

If you haven't already, consider joining the World Assembly (located on the left sidebar) which will allow you to become a Member State! Member States are able to get a spot on our map (link in the region's description), vote in regional polls, and even run for office when elections come up! If you're not interested in that, that's completely fine! We're a chill laid back community and we aim to make everyone's experience here as wonderful as possible.

A seed collection to get started on growing a plentiful variety of food, a large notebook in which to write things, and a tent of some sort to be shelter while I worked on something more permanent. I guess I'd have to settle for fishing unless there were a lot of pre-existing food plant life on the island, but I think with those things, I could make do.

Hello Refugia! I'm offering FREE flag requests to Member States of our region! Please read this dispatch for more information (it has also been pinned):

Hello! I'm offering FREE flag requests to all Refugia Member States. All you have to do to request me is either telegram my nation, Melenavenia, or message me on Discord at Raskuly#0627! I'm certified in Adobe Photoshop and learning Adobe Illustrator. I'm not an artist and don't have the ability to make custom artistic designs however.

Please provide who you are with proof if you are messaging me on Discord and provide a clear explanation of what your request is. I'll try to complete it as soon as possible.

An acceptable message would be: "Hi! This is [Nation name] and I'm contacting you because I'd like to request you. What I want is [Description of flag request]. Here is a screenshot of my settings page to prove that I am who I say I am."

This offer will still be up AFTER my term as Councillor of Internal Affairs has ended unless specified in the title of the dispatch. Don't be shy if you're interested!

Hey everyone, new Councillor of Culture here, ready to hit you with a thing.

So I'm thinking of doing the first official Refuge Game Night in five years. As I mentioned in my campaign post, we've been playing some games together in the Discord server, and my hope as Culture was to find a way to incorporate the NS-side and forum-side players into that.

The first game we're going to play together is Skribbl.io! If you don't know what that game is, it involves a group lobby where we take turns choosing one of three provided words, and then drawing it. The more people who guess it, the more points the artist gets, and the faster someone guesses the word, the more points they get. It's been a lot of fun the few times we've gotten to do it in the server, so I think it'd be a great thing for us to start with.

So when is this going to be, you might ask? I was hoping for this Saturday, February 27th. As for the direct time, there is a site set up where we can vote within a window I've provided. That link is here (http://whenisgood.net/d8pwdit). You don't need an account on the whenisgood site to vote, just type a nickname or your nation name, whatever you like more, so that I know who's who. Within the range where most people are available, I will set the game up. I'm hoping for an hour, but we can go longer if people are interested.

Thanks so much, and I hope we can have a lot of fun together!

Hi all,
I'd like to officially announce my candidacy for Councillor of Internal Affairs.
I've been a citizen of Refugia for a little over a month now, and I've come to especially appreciate the sense of community that is fostered here, even just on the RMB. Although I've been located in several regions throughout my time in the game, and Refugia has, without a doubt, felt like the place where I belong. Everyone was very helpful and friendly when I first joined, and I found myself immersed in a group of individuals who shared my passion regarding environmental issues, and who helped to expand my mindset by sharing snippets of their own unique perspectives, cultures, mindsets, and lives. I hope that, if I'm elected, I'll be able to welcome others with the same degree of warmth, help our region grow even more, and encourage further activity on the RMB through polls, textual queries, activities, and the retention of a safe, friendly environment.

Thanks for your time ^-^

Accepted!

Notice:

The period for candidacy has closed. During the allotted time, I received, one application from #ground-floor and two from the RMB. This gives us three candidates, and consequently marks the first time it actually makes sense that we use instant-runoff preferential voting, hooray. Those nations are:

Liphia (page=rmb/postid=42899575)
Laisou (https://discord.com/channels/755208088734269481/755209771627577364/813941002967580702)
Araine (page=rmb/postid=42909737)

There will be a five day voting period, beginning now, where all member states may vote to elect the next councillor. A member state is a World Assembly nation who has lived in this region for seven days, if that sounds like you, your name should be on the voter roll.

Turn in your vote today: https://vote.calref.network/vote/12

Voting closes at the end of the day on Sunday, Feb 28th. Folks are naturally allowed to ask questions and whatnot until then, just remember to get your votes in before the deadline.

I don't know who to vote for! Best of luck to everyone running!

So in about 33 hours, the General Assembly will hopefully be voting on Repeal: Fairness in Collective Bargaining. This is a repeal written by our own Sylh Alanor and helped slightly by myself, with the aim of repealing a previously discussed law which negatively affected labour unions and replacing it with a carefully worded alternative. As this is something I've had a hand in and several folks in the region have advised about too, the regional position is obviously going to be in favour. If anyone has any questions about the target, repeal, or replacement, let SA or myself know and we'll do our best to elaborate.

Proposal: page=UN_view_proposal/id=sylh_alanor_1613955865
