New United Kingdom Regional Message Board
So how is everyone's day?
Mine's fairly good.
A week since I asked about participation from our government on the RMB and nobody has even answered.
I'm deeply disappointed, words are it seems easy to put down here but actions... Well they scream about the place of those of us whom don't have time to play the game within a game that the off board forum is.
I'm not sure what to say or think anymore, I have had promises broken so many times by prime ministers and monarchs that I'm starting think it's a requirement of the job to tell us we won't be ignored... Then forget.
please honour your word
Derbyshire, as somebody who used to be Prime Minister here, before I became very (Very) inactive and basically retired from NS, I can say with absolute confidence that everyone who is currently in charge is doing their absolute best. I will not deny that the region is in trouble in terms of activity, and the government is definitely doing their best to resolve that. RMB participation was always one of my priorities when I was PM, and I'm sure that whoever is in charge now is similarly has that as their priority. Please do not stop trying to remind the "forum people" to engage with the RMB - the reminders work! People are only human, and often forget.
However, I don't think it's fair to say that the off-board forum people are some sort of bourgeoisie elite. It really doesn't take much time to engage in an off-site forum, and it's a lot more fun then you'd expect. I strongly encourage everyone to get involved - it adds a whole new aspect to the game, which is why all the most successful regions have an off-site aspect. For many people, NationStates is only fun because of that "game within a game".
Please do not feel neglected, and please continue to remind the government. As a region, we've been through so much together, and the last thing we need is a 'civil-war' between RMB-only people, and forum people.
To the government: Please, learn from the mistakes of former governments, and engage with the RMB. Regular updates don't take much time. They don't even need to be long. The RMB is one of the first things people look at before deciding to join a region. We need to make ours appealing.
Disclaimer: I am not part of the Government, and I know that I haven't been spending enough time here for anyone to care about what I say.
EDIT: Also, I really don't think it's fair to be claiming that the Government are not updating all members of the region. @Vitsipian has been sending regular comprehensive telegrams explaining all the goings-on of the region. It would be great if those TGs could resume, or if they could migrate to RMB update posts instead.
Also regarding Government involvement on the gameside, this is all about to change. His Royal Highness John, Prince of Wales (my hubby <3) and myself are both brainstorming ways to increase regional activity and involvement. Input from the RMB is more than appreciated.
Indeed, my telegrams are always open
