It saddens me to announce that Gates has requested this region to be shuttered. Gatesville has stood the test of time as the beacon for sovereignty. In short, we won the game. National and regional sovereignty are now touted across multiple regions and flaunted as a recruiting tool in all areas. I have not the heart to eject or ban anyone, so this region will continue to stand for as long as a nation resides here. I have password-protected it, and will not share the password, so it is immune to attack.

Unknown and Gilgamesh have agreed to take in any nations that wish to join.

Our forum at LinkForum will be archived.

I have never been so proud as I am now, to still be here with you all.

Double post, sorry.

Meeting postponed to next weekend. Apparently that putting it on the same day as St-Patty's isn't a good idea


I am deeply saddened by this turn of events. To me, Gatesville has always been a shining beacon of what is possible here on NationStates. However, this ending can also be a beginning.

Those of you wishing to preserve the culture of Gatesville, or who wish to continue the fight against the WA, the fire still burns! We shall live on!

I have founded Gilgamesh as a haven and a refuge for the remnants of Gatesville. There, the middle council - including myself, Pikasistan, and The red phoenix nation - will continue the legacy as best we can.

We welcome, you, our brothers and sisters, as we embark on this new journey.

See you around everyone. It was a pleasure spending all those years with you all. I will head out to Gilgamesh, as Galiantus said. Hope to see all there, Gatesville might be dead, but our resolve to fight the WA isn't!

Well, I guess I will be last one standing for I will always be here. Forever placing a light in the entrance way for all to see. I have known no other home than here. Good luck to all.

It saddens me that this is the ultimate end for Gatesville. Gates himself has said for it to vanish into the darkness sadly. Gatesville has only ever been my home on here. But take care all.
We gave it a shot, now we must move on.
With love for the motherland. Long live Gatesville!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Happy easter to you too

After roughly 15 years of continuous and faithful service, Noctaurus has officially retired. I don't have Gates knack for fine speeches and pretty turns of phrase, or any way to truly acknowledge just how much he contributed to the shaping of the Gatesville that we know and love. Please transfer your endorsements to Vile Villains at this time, since everyone clearly refuses to follow any directions in regards to actually leaving. :)

I tend to get lazy and complacent; just checking in every several days for issues, what not. It's nice and calm here.
