Some Random Interviewer wrote:Good day everyone,

it's a bit late to talk about Z-day, the annual zombie event. I am doing a survey for an article for a regional newspaper on what well-performing regions had in common. So lets get to the questions:

How would you rate your region's Z-day performance, on a scale of 1 to 5?

Did you have something like central nuclear command, and did people follow it a lot?

How populous was your region last Z-day?

Any Additional Answers are welcome and needed ^-^

Goodbye and have a nice day!

-Somebody.

It would be inappropriate if I didn't say it was 5/5 considering that we cured and locked the 116-strong region in about six hours. This was coordinated on the discord server with Operations Councillor Chacapoya commanding targets in the chat so members could participate in the missile brigading.

Last year the region had 21 members at the time of Z-Day and was cured and locked in five hours.

0, I forgot about it.

Rating the rest of us a 0/5 because you forgot about the event happening seems a bit unfair to the rest of us who spent six hours clearing the region and not having a single death.

Basically the same thing Refuge Isle said above, I'd give us a solid 5/5. Like she said then, we had a spectacular Z-Day, clearing the region quickly of all zombies and not having any deaths. Chacapoya coordinating through the Discord who we were going to collectively target and moving down the most populated list was smart and every one of us who participated worked together really well. I'm actually extremely proud of the people who played, because I think our result was pretty spectacular <3

It went so well that despite being absent almost all of Z-Day I had my entire population cured for me before I even made my own Cure missiles! (Forgot to add my rating lol 5/5)

Yeah Z-day wise, I didn’t participate, never been my thing, but I did watch the region work their butts off to get us to the spectacular finish we made it to, truly a spectacular effort :D

I'm getting a bit self-conscious that all of my GA takes are becoming too similar, but here we go anyway lol.

Protected Working Leave

Proposal: (page=UN_view_proposal/id=cretox_state_1606540208)
Thread: (viewtopic.php?f=9&t=489404)

I mean, I guess the most positive thing I can say about this is that it's a good subject to protect? But, like pretty much everything I've read from Cretox lately (and a few other GA authors who have been spamming proposals), it's weak and highly exploitable. I'm getting a bit frustrated by what I see to be a decline in quality of GA resolutions over the past six or eight months, especially since they keep getting away with it due to an overwhelming number of voters who are happy to rubber stamp things.

So let me stop complaining and show what I'm talking about, I guess:

wrote:(1,b,iii) the guaranteed ability to return to the same or a comparable job after the conclusion of paid leave, should their employer reasonably be able to provide such;

wrote:(2) Declares that member nations must provide workers who request such with a reasonable duration of paid leave to the extent necessary to adequately service any of the following conditions:

wrote:(4,a) give their employer reasonable notice in the event of a foreseeable birth or adoption; and

Reasonable seems to be the new watchword for the GA, as it's the most acceptable stand-in for actually providing any figures or solid ideas. The word is never defined and no limits are placed on this. It's so easily exploitable by the company to just say certain amounts of time aren't reasonable, and the text of the proposal supports that. The fact that people in the forum seem to focus all their negative attention on things they IC don't care for and let dozens of proposals with massive, glaring loopholes through mostly uncontested is grating.

Perhaps a new theme is that leaving glaring loopholes will increase the chance of getting passed?
