Damn, the first new Delegate for us in so long :O

Good luck to Rogamark, and let's everybody thank The Salaxalans for his dedicated 2111 days of service!

So close to a palindrome
Can we get something wintery next time? It's boiling down here.

Me too!
I think the "palindrome" reference was for Salaxalans' name...but then you lost meh.
Huzzah!

General Kenobi! You are a bold one!

Hey, has anyone ever wondered why there is no alternative to the WA? I mean, yes, it would be a complicated thing for the site to set up but.... Just like the United Nations, shouldn't there be some alternative approach to international diplomacy besides going at it alone as a hermit nation or joining the U.N. And then thus being totally bound by all the rules it sets for its member nations? I mean, talk about an attack on sovereignty when another organization can just by majority vote or something decided what laws your nation has or tells your nation that it can't defend itself in certain ways?

You could always make a WA proposal to create the Federation of independent nations (FIN), a WA like structure that sets guidelines and norms to promote international trade and cooperation.

So nations can be free from the bureaucracy, red tape and repression of the WA!

I believe our glorious delegate @Rogamark would, no doubt, endorse your hypothetical, yet valiant, efforts!

I believe he meant a numerical palindrome, as if it had happened one day later it would have been 2112 days.

Nope, I haven't wondered it because that's the way they wanted the game set up. They have zero incentive, in a not-overly-profitable volunteer-admined game to code in a second WA and just cause a major headache. Furthermore, given that WA Delegate and thus most political, military, and WA based gameplay is tied to the WA, making a parallel body would screw up way more than its worth. Ultimately it'll never happen because the Gameplay community would brigade the hell out of any Technical proposal on the matter if one was ever seriously entertained, and GP is a very vocal part of the game (especially when considering that due to regional recruitment, GP spends the most on stamps and therefore more money on the game than any of the other cliques around nationstates.

I see the unnaturally flabby nation of Itrosomia is now "The Beached Huddle. 😐

I love that song.
Sorry, nothing personal towards Itrosomia or against Walruses.
I just love that track.
