Poem

As the cat
climbed over
the top of

the jamcloset
first the right
forefoot

carefully
then the hind
stepped down

into the pit of
the empty
flowerpot.

~ William Carlos Williams

Forest Regional Message Board

On vacation sorry for the delayed response. I've been at quite a few national parks on this trip many for the very first time.

Aeterno Tranquillitas thanks 700 will always be one of my favorite issues I've authored Zwangzug and CWA were both instrumental in making it be as great as it is.

As for the raid attempt, I don't really care if they want to crash my streak, I don't see why anyone else would either. I see no need to do anything. Maybe informally bring down the endorsements of those closest to me so it's not so easy to crash me I suppose.

I'm happy to keep serving as delegate. I've been doing it a while and I've now passed resolutions in both councils so I'm probably better at reading WA resolutions than most anyone in forest, but I also see the value of getting new players involved. I think since I'm a fairly well known nation at this point being delegate probably helps a bit with recuitment. Anyway, ultimately it's the forest keepers decision as to who will be delegate, but I'm happy to serve if it continues to be desirable, happy to not serve if that is desirable instead.

Oh sorry I see there was some discussion of trouble brewing by Tiku and Chilledsville amoung others. It was a really light edit on my part CWA gets most of the credit. And why shouldn't option 2 increase primitveness? I specifically wanted it to based on my interpretation of the option text. Not that tea is primitive although it has been around along time, but for its overall position.

Alright more parks and monuments to see in the next few days will be back in 4 or 5 more days.

Tishanda, Montmorencia, and North Haryona

I've brought here a small puppet, The Protectorate of Sierra Brava. In Tauride we managed to reach a high level of greenness with a frightening economy and a high level of scientific development; Sierra Brava will attempt to reach a similar greenness index while remaining "primitive" and religious. I hope I can leave my experiment stationed here.

Well my civil rights are falling...

Fair enough although Tea is the most advanced way to end debates in the UK.

Passive Aggressively ofcourse :D :D :D

Chilledsville

Man, any time I take more than a day away from my computer to go camping, stuff seems to go crazy! :(

Still not thrilled to be the attack vector for the endorsement campaign, which is why I've stopped endorsing new nations to hopefully let my number taper off a bit further. It looks like there's a pretty good lead between Ransium ahead of myself, and Montmorencia (who's at #3), so maybe that'll forestall another go? And from my quick review of the discussion that occurred yesterday, while I'm always in favor of fewer rules rather than more, I'd agree to a cap on endorsements to keep a healthy barrier.

Tishanda, Montmorencia, Frieden-und Freudenland, and Aeterno Tranquillitas

Not sure if the current resolution goes against WA policy with too much interference, because on a first read, it seems very good for social inclusiveness and equality, even if his definitions for disabled bother me a little.

Frieden-und Freudenland

While I'd be broadly in favour of this measure IRL, I make my WA votes in-character, and Candlewhisper Archive finds the idea of brick-and-mortar universities somewhat antiquated and ridiculous. University in CWA is more like a focused social media group.

Thus for us, we're looking at admin costs being incurred to institute legislation that is of no relevance to us. It'd be like the UN forcing the USA to fund measures to retrofit stirrups to pre-medieval saddles. Useful in its context, but a bit of a waste of money.

Reading it, it doesn't go far enough in its definitions of disabled and suggests incredible admin costs. Also considering that the author seems to be against drafts or resolutions and is trying to push it through without collaborative effort. I'm new to the WA resolution game but it seems like it's something everyone chips in for, no? I'm voting no based on what I've seen.
