Equilism Regional Message Board
Happy 16th Anniversary Equilism!
So very many years it has been.
I ran for my first office, for Senator, in Equilism's first elections in February 2004. By the end of February, I had been Interior Minister and then Intelligence Minister of Equilism.
Thank you, I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself. Westwind is founded on the ideas of Freedom and Prosperity, and the self-rule of all peoples and nations. I would be happy to address any questions or concerns that any may have. I hereby swear to uphold the ideals of Equility region, and to maintain the secrecy of any information that I may be privileged to see in the event I am elected Senator.
I am looking to be more active in the region, having just joined the army, and now seeking the position of Senator. I hope to actively support the goals and proposals of the Region, promoting Peace and Prosperity for our nations while reaching out to enhance the growth of the Region, enabling stability in the process.
We should set the goals of gaining respect in the UN and international community, through the proposing of resolutions that will promote our ideals, participation in international forums, and working with our allies. I also look forward to learning more as we progress.
I will always be open to hear and represent the opinions of the Equilism region member-states. I encourage greater participation by all region members, and look forward to working with you all.
Again, Thank you.
It wasn't long until I was appointed (later elected) Prime Minister and Third Delegate of Equilism.....then Co-Founder and President. Here's an old IRC log fragment from 2004. A conversation of our original founder and co-founders, Equility, Westwind and Ostendt. The conversation ranged from topics of the ASE leaving ADN, Greece leaving ADN, the differences and merits of ADN and A.L.L., the alliance of New Sparrow and the NPO, the warming of relations between TNP and the NPO with the TNP Delegacy of Sydia, Status of the New Meritocracy, etc etc etc......Ostendt soon retired from active gameplay. So many things happened so fast in those early NS years.
<equility> btw, I was meaning to ask you
<equility> are you already with GLA?
<Westwind> no, I haven't heard back from Ostendt
<equility> ah, he's pretty inactive lately
<Westwind> I figured that's why he ran for Belgium delegate
<equility> yeh heh
<Westwind> he told me he's getting tired of the game
<equility> he told me about the same
<equility> one night he almost went invading
<equility> he was drunk :>
<equility> me too by the way :>
<equility> nevertheless, i talked him out of it
<Westwind> ah, you missed out last night
<Westwind> Penngrove, Talkos and I were having fun
<equility> well I was prolly sleeping :)
<Westwind> we had PH laughing
<Westwind> Talkos celebrating his retirement
<Westwind> Me celebrating my semi-retirement
<equility> why semi-retirement?
<equility> you're not leaving eh! $#@ :>
<Westwind> no !
<Westwind> Don't know what else to call my stepping down...
<equility> well, stepping down doesn't mean anything, right? :)
<equility> I stepped down as President once :)
<Westwind> You should check out Penns nation...he changed his quote and his flag last night..it's related to our celebrating
<Westwind> I passed out cigars....then we had smoking fish....which we mounted on a plaque
<Westwind> PH was the shark
<Westwind> she got sick from eating Penn...and threw up all over me
<Westwind> like I said, you should have been there
<Westwind> oh, and PH was being a mod slave too
* equility scratches head to understand the whole situation
<Westwind> PH became a shark and tried to eat the boat we were on....
<Westwind> Bit off part of Talkos' foot
<equility> what did you guys drink?
More 2004 History?
I regret to inform everyone, but I am dropping out of this race. I believe Equility is doing a much better job that I could do, and that my place is as minister of DEHRSA. I can do far more for the environment and the other issues dear to me as minister than I could as Delegate/PM.
I wish good luck to both Rhonanvin and to Tomika. I think either one of them will make a good Delegate/UN.
- Rhonanvin was Vice President, and was re-appointed Vice-President by Founder/President Equility after losing the Prime Minister/Delegate election. Tomika was Minister of Defense, and kept that position after winning the election as Prime Minister/Delegate.
- Westwind was appointed Prime Minister/Delegate to replace Tomika, while also serving as Minister of Intelligence.
- Tomika and Westwind wrote the first legislation passed by the Equilism Senate, the Military Awards law.
In 2004, newly registered nations on our forums received this message:
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for registering and to welcome you at the Equilism forum. Right now you only have access to the Introduction to Equilism Forum but one of the Admins will soon change your usergroup so you can view the other boards as well.
You will then be able to see the Civilian Center which features The Bar, where we hang out and talk about everything imaginable, also it has the Fun & Events boards where games take place and the RP Board for roleplaying. If you're more into debating, that too is an option in our Open Debate Board (very popular at the moment, we have some great debaters here). There are some more boards there but their functions are pretty obvious so you'll see that soon.
Anyway, you can, if you wish, apply for the Army. The E-Army was recently ranked the third best Defense Army in the game and we make sure to keep up this reputation. If this sounds like something you'd like to do, go to the website and click on the link Army Application in the first menu on your left. If you're unfamiliar with the concept of "Army" and "Defending" in the NationStates environment, I suggest you send a personal message to our Minister of Military Nooterland (click the new post button and fill in the name Nooterland in the Username field).
I hope I've made some things clearer to you upon your arrival here. If you have any questions you want to ask me, don't hesitate to send me a personal message back by clicking on the reply button.
Thank you! Our treatied relationships with The North Pacific go back to our beginning. One of our first bi-lateral treaties was with The North Pacific, and we were allied via ADN and A.L.L. as well.
Have we ever considered writing the "definitive, totally accurate, definitely not full of self-promoting/self-aggrandizing lies" history of the region?
That sounds exhausting. :P
The Monkye used to do much work on tracking our history in the past. And we are occasionally studied, and occasionally copied, by others around NS. Our Office of Records and Statistics has alot of our history:
