I'm sorry to hear that, Maineiacs - I hope you're doing better now!

A lot better. It's not the first time the medical profession has written me off claiming I'm close to death/ need to be placed in assisted living or a nursing home only for me prove them wrong and come all the way back to pretty much where I was pre- the latest crisis. I'm hardly in perfect health and never have been, but I'm far more resilient (and stubborn) than I'm usually given credit for.

I don't suppose there's anyway to close off the region until this stupid zombie thing is over?

I donít think so :(

Hello friends!

Forest's fifth annual Photo Contest is beginning, and as has been the case in past years, submissions are open to anyone from our embassy regions. We'd love to see some submissions from y'all! :)

You can find more information here:


Forest Photo Contest 2019


December is just around the corner, and that means 2019 is coming to an end. Whether you're bracing yourself to eat massive amounts of leftover turkey in a few days or just waiting for 2019 to be over, it's time to look forward to the next year. But wait! The fifth annual Forest Photo Contest is here to spice up the last month of the year!

Here's what you need to know:

🌲 We have four categories once again this year:

  • LinkTrees (this category is permanent each year)

  • LinkAnimals (the first repeat category! We had this one in the first contest back in 2015)

  • LinkReflections (seeing in and through water / glass / mirages / symmetry - whatever meaning inspires you!)

  • LinkCultivation (agriculture, gardening and growth)

🌲 You may submit up to 12 photos total. You may choose how to divide those among the different categories, but please do not submit more than 12.

🌲 Please post your photos in the appropriate thread on our forums, located Linkhere. You may also submit photos in a telegram to Mount Seymour or Lord Dominator.

🌲 The photos must be taken by you, but can be taken at any time (not just during the contest).

🌲 Anyone in Forest or in a region which has an embassy with Forest may submit photographs for the Contest.

🌲 Timing:

  • Submissions will be open from November 24 at 00:00 GMT (7:00pm Nov 23 EST) to December 23rd at 23:59 GMT.

  • Voting will begin on December 24th at 23:59 GMT and end December 31st at 23:59 GMT, so that we will select the winners in the first minutes of 2020!

🌲 Voting will take place on a Google Form. Needless to say, please no puppeteering!

🌲 The photographers with the top three photographs in each category will have their photos acknowledged on our RMB, on our World Factbook Entry, and potentially in our next foreign update. A banner will also be created with a collage of the top photos to applaud the winners, and participants in the competition will be encouraged to add it as their nation's custom banner. Forest's flag will also be changed to the 1st place photos in each category for a week after the Contest.

Now it's time to head out and start photographing! Good luck to everyone!

Any questions about the Contest should be directed to Mount Seymour or Lord Dominator.

Read dispatch

Happy photographing!

I hope everyone is staying safe during this time

Maineiacs how is everything with you?

Just got out of the hospital. Better now.
