Welcome to South Orkney!

The Commonwealth of South Orkney is a small, tight-knit community of nations living in good peace with each other. Everyone is welcome except trolls, raiders and mean people in general. Though it looks completely ordinary, South Orkney is in fact, unique in many ways. Not only do we have a fully-functioning, state-of-the-art, democratic government, we also have a currency and a satellite region for medieval roleplay. Furthermore, we are chess-cultured, and we spend time playing and competing in chess. But more than anything, we have fun! We have an active, though sometimes eccentric, RMB and are always eager to see new nations join our community.

South Orkney Regional Message Board

Welcome Cescana! I'm very sorry to see that your old region was raided, but we hope you'll find your new home here at South Orkney! I encourage you to join us on our Discord (

Are you new?

Good day inhabitants of South Orkney.

Our two regions have a well-established history that I am sure most of you are aware of. From initial conflict over aspects of foreign interference in the Warzones and Singapore, to a period of positive interactions in spite of a political election scheme by Egypt, our regions have retained bilateral relations including this embassy and a treaty-level bond. For comparison, while Democritus has 28 embassies in total only six predate the South Orkney embassy, and we have only one other treaty-level relationship (Aeterna Publicae). It is for this reason that South Orkney was promoted to the top of our embassy list some time ago, where it remains first above the others. There are even players with shared residency in both of our regions to this day, which is a sign of how close our communities have become over time.

Democritus is currently looking to embark upon a new era of its external relations with other regions. Due to our longstanding links, I am visiting here first before any other region. I am aware of South Orkney's current status, however want to make it clear that my region is open to and strongly desires opportunities to do more together. If there is such desire within South Orkney also, please make it known to us! If there is no such desire however, then I recognize it and will not force the point further.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I greatly appreciate South Orkney as being a region with which I can say we have such close relations.



NMFend wrote:We gave you the means to fix regional world factbook entries, but apparently you are either too lazy to use it or still don't get the difference between detagging and retagging. It's not too hard to understand:

Restoring a region to how it looked before it was raided = defending
Linking to your own group, writing your own WFE, etc = raiding/retagging

For the last time, here is a link to the 10 Commandments of Detagging:

Ten Commandments of Detagging
First posted by Cormac stark, reposted by Union of kiwi socialists in dispatch form with permission following their deletion by Cormac.

1. Thou shalt not impose your own World Factbook Entry.

2. Thou shalt instead retrieve the region's original WFE, using the resources provided below.

3. Thou shalt not impose your own region/org's flag.

4. Thou shalt instead retrieve the region's original flag, with the resources below, or if you can't do that abolish the region's flag.

5. Thou shalt not impose tags that haven't been chosen by the region's natives.

6. Thou shalt instead retrieve the region's original tags, with the resources below, while removing tags imposed by the tag raiders (usually "Invader," often "Recruiter Friendly"). If you can't find the original tags, remove all tags.

7. Thou shalt not establish embassies with your region/org.

8. Thou shalt instead close the embassy or embassies the raiders established, and try to restore any embassies the raiders closed.

9. Thou shalt not post on the Regional Message Board unless invited to do so by natives.

10. Thou shalt instead suppress any raider posts on the RMB and unsuppress any native posts that the raiders suppressed.

Detagging Resources

LinkGoogle - You can often use Google's cache to find original WFEs, tags, and embassies. Just type "site:region=[insert region here]" into the search engine to find all the subdomains available, one of which is likely to have the original content.

LinkWayback Machine - If Google cache doesn't work, the Wayback Machine often will.

LinkWFE Index - This resource, maintained by Eluvatar of the United Defenders League, will almost always give you a region's original WFE.

LinkFlag Database - This resource, also maintained by Eluvatar of the UDL, will almost always have a region's original flag.
