Wischland wrote:Markanite what's your favorite part of being CE? And what's your least favorite?

This was a really tough question! I love being able to interact with such a large amount of Islanders and learn about them. We have such a diverse community here that I learn so much about peoples lives. In my personal life I love to travel, and learning about the world so I'm fortunate to get to learn about others here too!

Not sure I have a least favourite part of the job, some parts aren't easy! Especially when you have to make tough calls but it comes with the role and I will always do what I think is in the best interest of XKI and it's community.

Markanite what are your duties as Commander-in-Chief of TITO?

Flying Eagles wrote:Hey Mark! What do the symbols on your flag represent?

Hi Flying Eagles!

I made this flag back in 2011 (I think) in MS paint, maybe it is time for me to revisit it!

The colours, green, white and orange are taken from the Irish flag, I was born in Northern Ireland and lived there until recently. The dog represents my national animal, the harp is from Ireland and the shamrock is growing at the base of the tropical trees of XKI.

Hello Markanite,

what extra steps do you think XKI could take to counter the raider threat, that are not being done right now?

Astrobolt wrote:Markanite what are your duties as Commander-in-Chief of TITO?

As Commander and Chief I get to support TITO Command, appoint officers and award nations for their valiant actions when defending other regions. I also do other things but those are top secret!

If anyone is interested in joining TITO, please see this dispatch for more information! You could be part of the best Defending Force in Nationstates and get to work with some amazing people!




Join the Ten Thousand Islands Treaty Organization

TITO (Ten Thousand Islands Treaty Organization) is 10000 Islands' very own defender army! TITO provides for the defense of our region, as well as going out to help defend other regions in Nation States that are attacked unfairly.

What we do:

Invaders attempt to capture the WA Delegacy of regions, predominantly founderless regions, and seize control. They then damage the region by frequently ousting democratically elected government officials and regional leaders, ejecting or banning native nations, and often holding the region captive over long periods. To stop this, we work to help counteract their actions and ultimately defeat the invaders.

Sounds easy? Defenders have to follow specific orders, and in perfect coordination. Each mission is unique and with the very future of a whole region on the line, that can be intense!

TITO has helped thousands and thousands of regions in our time and we wish to ensure that all regions can thrive in peace, free from invader harassment.

That is where YOU come in!

TITO is always seeking those who share our values and who want to help other regions in peril. Applicants to TITO will receive patient training by expert defenders, at a pace that is workable for you. New members to TITO can choose their level of involvement, and can participate as frequently or occasionally as their schedule allows. Within a few days of joining TITO, you will be learning the skills, and making a very real contribution to the security and stability of the NS community.

Applying to TITO is easy and quick. Just follow this link to our forum and answer a few questions: https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/38803/join-premier-defence-force-nationstates

After a quick security check, and consideration by TITO Command, most applications will be processed in about one week. If admitted, you will be joining a dynamic and historic community of defenders. We support each other, our region, and the wider NS world.

Join now!

TITO Mission Statement

TITO, the Ten thousand Islands Treaty Organization, stands to defeat aggression in the NationStates world by defeating groups or regions that attack innocent regions.

Any region that attacks an innocent region is an enemy of TITO and the 10000 Islands. The attacking of innocent regions is a cowardly and dishonorable practice. The invaders attack out of ego and their invasions of quiet and innocent regions is the online equivalent of bullying. TITO stands up to the bullies of this game and will hound them by whatever means necessary, in accordance with NationStates rules.

TITO cannot and will not defend every region in NationStates, but when a region is unjustly invaded, not only will we hold the option of defending that region in whatever manner we see fit, but we also hold the option of attacking the attacking regions homeland itself.

TITO and the 10000 Islands seeks to live in peace with all regions in NationStates, but we will not back down to the those that wish to impose their will on innocent regions.

This is a warning to all regions that engage in the practice of region crashing -- if we haven't heard of you yet, we will. If we haven't stopped you yet, we will, and if you haven't felt our presence in your homeland yet, you will. There are ways to make life difficult for those regions that wish to oppress others. If you attack innocent regions, beware TITO. Long live freedom, long live the 10000 Islands and long live TITO!

What's the treaty part of TITO?

Pianaville wrote:What's the treaty part of TITO?

The term "TITO" actually originates from a role-play group within the region. Prior to the Empire of Power attack, TITO had no military r/d gameplay function -- but the name and organizational structure was then reappropriated and evolved to be the region's gameplay r/d military.

Hey WH! What is your favorite part of your job, and why?

Durrnil wrote:As a European, what are 10KI's relations with embassy regions?

Well, you can see what regions we have embassies with under the WFE. I am not sure if this is how you meant the question, but the normal way we conduct relations is to send an emissary (hired by the Delegate HumanSanity and Secretary of State Margaux) to a region, and they'll integrate themselves as an emissary and chat with the people there, and at the end/beginning of every month, the emissaries report back and post in certain forum threads about their embassy region's government, activity, etc. Also, Senator for Blue Canaria North Wischland writes a monthly update at the beginning of the month, which after Delegate approval, gets distributed by the emissaries to their regions.

The Galactic RepubIlic wrote:Hey WH! What is your favorite part of your job, and why?

Hmm, that's a hard question! I'd say my favorite part of being the Senator for Himes West is definitely running the roleplay events that I announce. For example, running the A Taco Archipelago International Convention was really fun, mainly for the reason that I got to see everyone's submissions and learn more about everyone's nations! The same goes for my ongoing forum RP, An Age of Swords and Shields, I like running ( and participating) in it, because I like learning about how you all do things! Also, as the Senior Senator, I get to select the RoQ every quarter, and if I get re-elected next month, I would get to select the ones in April and July, and it'd be fun to watch newcomers and choose.

Alright, my hour is over, thank you for your time, be sure to be back in a few hours for WA Secretary Eastern New England!
