Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening. We have not posted an NS News Dispatch for over 6 weeks. And with Z-day and an election in the US, I have decided to declare this our first SPECIAL EDITION. So let's get to it!

Z-day was a mess in most regions, but especially in the Sinkers. Those regions were the provinces of Zombiania. Forest and NationStates undoubtedly did the best this time around, as well as last time. Kyupaa, the nation with the most people in the entire game, had the most survivors this time, as well as last time! The percentages of Z-day had more infected than last time in the end result, and survivors and dead had less percentage wise than last time. All in all, amazing Z-Day.

Then the US election. *sighs* As Trump was leading in the polls, NSers began to predict a Trump Electoral victory, but as Biden began leading, the majority of them predicted a Biden one. All in all, a poll found that the majority of NSers thought the election results to be "A Little of Both Good and Bad," with the majority of others saying that the results were either "Mostly Good" or plain and simple "Good."

There is extremely sad news in Moderation now, Issues Moderator Ransium has resigned as a Moderator and Issue Editor. The NS community wishes Ransium luck on whatever his/her next step will be. Also, Game Moderator Crazy girl seems to have appeared out of nowhere while I wasn't looking and somehow became a mod? I cannot find any sources regarding Crazy Girl's appointment, so...........I guess the name fits.

It was a bad day for most of the Top 10 in NoN', although it was an especially bad day for the sinkers, where they all lost more than 100 Nations. The Rejected Realms overtook The Pacific, and Big Farma overtook the Allied Nations of Egalaria. We will also be changing how we do NoN' next edition. Instead of comparing yesterday's to today's, we will compare Last Edition's to This Edition's.

And the South Pacific is furious at The Black Hawks for "violating their sovereignty." The South Pacific has reported that TBH nations created puppets to highly influence their RMB debates on World Assembly proposals. They have it that there's proof for it too. (Read Article.)

Anyway, The Kingdom of Great Britain was Europeia's region of the week, TNP's Vice-Delegate Weekly Update is out, It seems Enadia had elections, and the Layem Times put out another issue, and TSP put out another delegate address. The featured region today is Dreamtime, congratulations!


Should Moderators be elected?

By La xinga

I created an election game on the forum some time ago, and one candidate suggested that if he was elected, he'll make mods be elected. Whether he actually wanted this or not, it raises an interesting question. So let's look into it: Should Mods be elected? Let's see the Pros and Cons.

First the Pros: Everything good about Democracy. Also, it could strike the rumors of Moderator Brutality. Think so and so Mod has been unjust? VOTE HIM/HER OUT! It can also make the average NSer more interested in Moderation and how the sight works.

Then there are the Cons. Some may worry that if Moderators need to fear of losing reelection, they might rule "Not Actionable" on cases in order to win support among NSers. There's also a fear of nations finding ways to rig the system. Then there's also a fear of electing people who don't know how to mod. If you don't have good mods, then it's like there's no mods, and if there's no mods...............yeah.

So what do you think? Should moderators be elected?


What is your favorite part of being delegate?

By La xinga

We asked a couple of delegates what their favorite part of being delegate is. We will not be mentioning the delegate names or regions, although we will mention what they said:

  • As a large Delegate, I would have to say waiting for the clock to tick over and the update to start before a new proposal I'm personally against comes to vote, just so I can crush the author's hopes and dreams by throwing a whole bunch of votes against it. Something something lemming effect.

    I think this is a guilty pleasure of any large Delegate, really.

  • Hi there La xinga!

    Um ... I think I would say being able to crush the WA vote by voting first haha ^_^


  • I get to do my part in helping *REGION* stay stable and fun.

  • My favorite part of being delegate is creating an orderly system that everyone can agree to. There is something to be said about installing fair rules and uniform organization, I didnít run because I wanted to be in charge, I ran for delegate because I saw improvements that could be made to benefit everyone.

    Not to mention the aesthetic part. Making a region look professional and simple makes it look much more enticing, seeing new people interested in out region is always heart warming, and seeing them stay because of the system I took a great part in is even more heart warming.

    I must say I always enjoy the feedback and help I get from fellow *REGION*ans, seeing people take interest in our region beyond RMB and the people that are inside it. I am still working hard to organize my region, and fulfill the promises I made in my campaign.

  • having power xd

  • Frankly? Being "in charge" of the most awesome region and wholesome community. Being free to give it all a direction.

  • In *REGION* the Delegate is traditionally in charge of our efforts in the assorted NS events like N-Day, Z-Day, and the April Fool's events. I think those are certainly the best part, helping everyone work together so *REGION* can shine on a world stage!

And that's it! Which one of these messages do you think were the best?

I will also try to make NS News more often.

Read dispatch

NS News is back!

Good Afternoon all.

Hail the new officer!
