Thankies, The Asylum Manager. You do know how much I do love strawberries.
I can write a Dispatch regarding Embassies if the Crew would like.
EDIT: I wrote one. You can find it here -->
An act to Regulate Embassies in Firefly's World Factbook Entry
WHEREAS: Firefly's World Factbook Entry, to be abbreviated to WFE in this act, is the representation of the Region, its Officers, and those Regions which Firefly either has diplomatic relations with or wishes to develop diplomatic relations with in the future, and
WHEREAS: Firefly is continually subjected to Embassy Requests from all and sundry Regions whether requested or not. We have or have received requests for Embassies with "Embassy Collector" Regions, Inactive Regions, Tiny Regions, and Regions that have no affinity with the goals and ideals of Firefly, and
THEREFORE: Be it enacted that all Regions holding or seeking WFE Embassies with Firefly meet the criteria as outlined in this Act, below.
TITLE I: Suitability of Regions
Regional Size: For acceptance of an Embassy Request by Firefly, a region must have a population minimum of 10 active nations.
Regional Activity: To qualify for, and to continue to maintain Embassies with Firefly, a region must be be active, as indicated by its Regional Message Board, to be abbreviated to RMB in this act. A regional RMB showing no activity for a period of the preceding 14 days cannot be considered for an Embassy nor once and Embassy has been established can the Embassy be maintained.
Regional Suitability: Requests for Embassies by regions that do not subscribe to the same goals, ideals, and code of conduct exhibited by Firefly shall be summarily denied.
Embassy Collector Regions: Requests for Embassies by regions that appear to be solely established collect Embassies shall be summarily denied.
Raider/Invader Regions: Requests for Embassies by regions that appear to be Raider/Invader regions shall be summarily denied.
TITLE II: Adjudication
All regions that have Embassies with Firefly shall be monitored on the following points:
Regions failing in adherence to the points outlined above shall have their Embassy in Firefly closed without warning or appeal.
TITLE III: Responsibility
The responsibility for the enforcement of this Act shall fall jointly on the Founder and the Public Relations Officer.
The Founder: The Founder may approve Embassy Requests meeting the parameters outlined in Title I of this Act.
Public Relations Officer: The Public Relations Officer shall periodically monitor all Embassy regions to ensure their adherence to this Act. This monitoring shall take place at least once every two weeks as a minimum.
Regional Officers: Any Regional Officers with Embassy privileges may withdraw Embassies in the case of emergencies.
Looks good, so good I'll let you take over that power. Seeing as some real world things have been keeping me away from NS.
Thankies. :D I will start checking on those Embassies that we now hold for compliance...as soon as I replace the framistat on the engin.
The sci-fi fans over at the Bar will be disappointed with your decision. Had your policy on embassies been publicly posted at the time I made my request, I'd have sent a diplomatic telegram along with our request.
It seems that the only one of the points included might apply to the Bar, "Embassy Collector Regions: Requests for Embassies by regions that appear to be solely established collect Embassies shall be summarily denied."
I would state that the Bar does not exist solely to 'collect' embassies.
Personally, I like to give every region a chance to be included in our role-play, regardless of size or activity, with the exception of known raiders and invaders. The Bar's role-play is not diplomatic, but social, being a clearing house for players to meet and interact without having to leave their own regions.
But you have made your decision and I hope you may change your mind in the future.
Thanks for your time.
M'Lord Lake of Fur,
Thank you for your recent Aide-Mémoire regarding our decision to reject your region's application for an Embassy with Firefly. While the dispatch that I wrote is brand new, it reflects Firefly's long time stance with regards to creating Embassies with regions such as yours. Our Embassies are those with which members of our region have close personal ties as I have with members of The House at Pooh Corner, The Doctor Who Universe, and U R N. I hope that this clarifies our stance on the matter of our rejection of your Embassy Request.
