Okay. I'll have stable internet tomorrow.
If I owe anyone anything, apart from Thalasus which I remember because it's been more than a month, please mention it so I can know what to look for.

Culture: Yarn Fest II Inter-regional Contest Open
Yarn Fest II is a contest hosted by Lands End to determine which nation can write the best yarn! The contest will run through January 17th, during which you can write and submit an original story revolving around the theme of winter. Submissions will be judged based on entertainment value, creativity, and grammar, with the scores and winners announced after the contest ends. The last contest was won by our very own Elbbsas (Pogglind), and it would be excellent if one of our members won again! If you're interested in writing a story for the contest, check the dispatch below for more information as well as our Yarn Fest forum topic for regional contest discussion.

Welcome to Yarn-Fest! This is a creative competition created to promote the sharing and spreading of ideas, and communication between both nations and regions alike. The goal is simple, to determine who can write the best yarn! For those of you who don't know, a yarn is another term for story. Given the time frame this competition is set to take place, the theme for this event is Holiday, so all submissions must be Winter themed. This event will be judged by Torranta and The Owner of Good Ship Revenge. The current Heavy-Weight Yarn-Spinning Champion of the World (last round's winner) is Pogglind.

The rules are simple. Those who fail to comply will be disqualified.

    1. Nations will have 2 weeks to write and submit their stories. (January 3-17). You may not start writing your submission until the 2 weeks begins.

    2. There is no limit to how long your story can be. While you will not be disqualified for sending us 39 pages, you will make us judges very sad.

    3. You may only submit ONE story. Those who send in more will have any and all stories eliminated.

    4. This round's submission MUST be WINTER themed.

    4. All submissions must be sent via telegram to BOTH Torranta and Good Ship Revenge.

    5. Your story must be FICTIONAL, and it mustn't be plagiarized. I will know if you do.

    6. Each judge will score the stories out of 30. 10 points for Entertainment Value, 10 points for Creativity, and 10 points for grammar.

    Format:

      Entertainment Value: 10

      Creativity: 10

      Grammar: 10

      Total: 30

    7. Judges, note that some sentences may be grammatically incorrect for dramatic or figuarative emphasis. Do not take off points if you recognize this.

    8. Judges may score in decimals up to the hundredths place. For example: 9.24. No further.

    9. The final score is the average of both judges' scores.

    10. The story with the highest score is declared the winner, and is granted bragging rights and claims the title, "Heavy-weight Yarn-spinning Champion of the World" from the current champion, Pogglind, who earned a perfect score last round. Both the nation name and winning story will be recorded for posterity.

    11. In the unlikely event of a tie, the nations in question will be given an extra week to write another story to be re-evaluated.

    12. Nations are permitted to cooperate on one story. The story will be credited to all nations associated with the story.

I will make a Dispatch containing the entries with the final scores, and another Dispatch without the entries but including a more detailed scoreboard. I may also record the top yarn from each region. Nations may request a comment/critique of their story to be sent to them via telegram after the competition has ended.

Regions included will be:

Special Guest Regions

Torranta,
Chief Trade Officer
Lands End

-Warning Allouxia is gonna make a rant-

Okay come on yeah sure the holocaust was a horrible thing that happened that saw the deaths of millions of people but come on...What Provincial America said was purely a joke. This "omg I'm offended ban him" thing is dumb there's no reason for someone to take it seriously/ get offended.

Yevraziyskaya rus

If 'offensive humor' has been allowed to fly before, it's because the RMB has been so poorly moderated in the past. Most of the government and administration are based in other areas of Wintreath, and the RMB was never really active until the last year or so. However, some seriously poor behaviour here over the past few months has come to our attention, behaviour that in one case required the intervention of NS moderation, and as a result I'm paying more attention to what goes on here.

In fairness, Provincial America wasn't banned for his comment to Yevraziyskaya Rus, he was simply informed that his comment went a little too far when it came to our guidelines. He was only banned when he continued to troll in response, showing that he clearly had no regard for the rules of this community.

Wintreath is a community that both strives to be a warm and personable community as well as a community that allows for free speech and discussion, so long as that speech is civil. However, telling someone to 'get gassed' in response to their sexuality crosses a line, and trying to troll the founder telling him so was just a very bad idea. Besides just not being funny at all, it reflects badly on the rest of the community when that's the first thing a new or potential member sees.

And 'lol it's a joke' just doesn't excuse it.

It's Provincial America that ruined it. Had he made better decisions as to what to post, he'd still be here.

500 of all types of missiles. Im still wondering about your ships and aircraft though.

Cote Azure wrote:Eh, you're all soft

What would be soft is just to ignore someone making a mockery of the extermination of an entire people during the largest war in civilization. Im all for non-PC humor, but please grow some god damn moral backbone.

Not to mention it was directed at Yevraziyskaya rus, one of my friends, as a threat. I wont stand for that at all and youre lucky Im still willing to entertain you in this region for defending it. Im happy that Wintermoot was willing and able to act accordingly, and I wont miss Provincial America.
