Russian national socialist republic

What... does that exactly mean? How many levels are there even...?
Gasp!
GASP!!!
Thank you so much! It is such a great honour, and it means a lot to me to hear this...

When I started on NS I saw you and I was like "they seem cool". That's honestly how most of my real life friendships started.

Weren't Nazis anti-socialist?

Kids say way worse than anything on here.

Actually it isn't. The terms and conditions say you should be over 13. On the other hand, nothing's stopping you, but that's what they recommend.

It's the flag of the Russian state over all else in the TSP

This is the real reason you never mention Nazis in an argument. Mention them once and they think it's a rally.

Next thing you know, there's a bunch of them marching around, shouting, tracking mud all over the rug in the parlor you just decorated.

Itís just not like how it was when we first started. All our old cronies gone, or changed. Rules we have no hand in making. There are days...

That's for the forums. NationStates itself has no age limit in the terms and conditions.

The issues aren't as graphic, of course, but they still deal with some mature matters in a humorous and not particularly decorous way.

Recently, things feel a bit more sanitized here then I like, but that's a subjective judgement.

I'm not privy to conversations between the LCs, but it seems quite obvious you are not all on the same page. Combined with the still unclear RMB rules, it's getting harder to tell what's acceptable and what isn't.

I'm not even in the same book, and while Volaworand has done his best to be a mediating force, his views are more aligned with Aumeltopia than mine, hence the string of two-to-one votes that have resulted in these newer laws.

You said that your a "Nazi Russia" but your nation is clearly socialist and your name even backs that up. Nazi's and socialists were very different things and even killed each other out of hate and in war. It seems to me like you just showed two unpopular or hateful ideologies and pretended to back them to seem edgy.

Then they start getting silly ideas about taking a quick "blitzkrieg" and suddenly you need to call a plumber because they absolutely wrecked your pipes.

Okay, old man, that's enough out of you. Back to your pudding.

Hmm. Maybe TSPís LCs should only pass laws with a unanimous vote because the Auphelian voter base is going completely ignored, and itís not as though itís that hard to have 3 people agree to something.

Plus it would be a much needed stabilizing force so we donít keep swinging from one extreme to another.

We're the RPers; we're used to being ignored.

Also, it's harder than you think to get a unanimous vote. The LC would effectively be shut down if we ever had an LC like our current one again.

It makes people think about what their clothes are hiding!

Suppressed!

Also, it implies bathing, which implies nudity!

Think of the children, you feckless fiend!

This is why you aren't a Legend, dear.

Time for something that is important.

Remember to celebrate all those who have given some, while some gave all while wearing the uniform.

God bless all veterans. I celebrate your service. Thank you.

The RMB rules are as clear as a thick pea soup, and there is no clear direction as to what can be posted on RMB and what cannot be posted on RMB.
For example: Roleplaying.

Many People do not seem to know what is considered as roleplaying. Is offering a newcomer South Pacific Iced Tea roleplaying? Many people are carried away on these RMBs with no clear indication as to what is considered to be an acceptable RMB post with relation to RPing. Not many people would know what to do in the instances of Knowhere and Psomwhere, as people don't know how or wha to use it for. Why are there two role-playing regions? I cannot seem to find any information on this. This just confuses people.

All LC candidates are elected on the notion that they can 'clear up the RMB', however, there are disparities as to what that means. Offensive speech is not always as well monitored as it can be, therefore leading to the alienation of many NS players.

Finally, although I believe that there is a problem with irreverent RPing, however, the perception of irreverence depends on the person who is witnessing it. Currently, there is no clear leadership amongst members of the LC to clean up the RMB, as everyone has different views on what cleaning up means. There should be a clearer mandate as to what this means. I think the current LC are perfectly competent, however, communication and consultation would solve many people's plights on the RMB as opposed to thinly veiled threats.

Either Ways, Rant Over. How is everyone?

Nazism is the shortened name for National Socialism. I hope that clears things up.

Ah yes, because nowhere in all of history have 3 people ever agreed?

I think the word unanimously has a bit of a harsh connotation, because in a political sense itís a terrible idea. But thatís because in a political sense more than 3 people are voting, 100s are voting.

In reality, what wouldnít happen is deadlock, after all you all (to some extent) agreed on the new/old rules which are/were in place. Thatís half the battle, and everything else should be stable after that. I donít think itís too much to ask for our rules to be considered passable by three people, I think itís no more weird than having two people consider it passable. Worst still if out of the three people one thinks itís a horrid idea.

66% is not a passing grade people.

Thatís half the battle, everything else should be nice and stable and only implemented if the idea is good, I donít think itís too much to ask for our laws to be considered a good idea by three people instead of two people. Especially if a third thinks the law is horrible.

Depends on what sort of passing you are thinking of.

Also, part of the problem is that we couldn't even be agreed on the old rules, much less any new ones.

Besides, we rotate far more often than most other forms of politicians. Also, as there are only three LC slots, they tend to go to greater extremes. People might rally around a candidate on one issue, then the next seat will go to the next extreme, and then the next seat goes to yet another extreme. We're like little mayfly terrorists, except our weapons are our votes to make new laws.

A 66 in England is an Upper Second (2:1); pretty good!
