It's still burning from the time I set it on fire.

Happy Palm Sunday everyone!

3 Kind of important sounding things that has happened in The Founding Citadel:

"Remember, you can always buy a nuke form NUKERA ENTERPRISE!! NUKERA is one of our long time participants in the glorious connection, communication, and discussion hub of The wonderful Founding Citadel!" - OmniComplexity Inc.

"Don't forget to hire body guards while outside of the Capital city of Katesia! There always worse things than pollution you will deal with, and by that we mean bandits, Freestufism fanatics, and people who just want to burn down houses! Always travel with some you trust, never go along in the slums!" - Katesia Internal Security Intelligence

"A: Good evening Unity News Network, watcha have here? B: Well, PRINT INC. Recently developed a new upgrade to the recently marketed NEON-HOUSE "Build it yourself!" which includes a kit for a third floor kitchen and a heli-pad kit!" - Unity News Network

VROOM VROOM!

Good morning, Supreme Shark!

But... what? I don't see a Messiah anywhere on the RMB...
If a Messiah is here, he could be any one of us.

Following new legislation in Unojo, Saney Malnja is worshipped as a god.
This took too long to happen, if you ask me.

Entirely too long.

*stretches and groans*
I would have slept a lot longer if I didn't need to pee so bad.
Anyway, here's my campaign again!

So, I have no clue on how to format, and with five AP exams on the way, I don't have much time either. Y'all already know me and if you don't, well, I'm literally just a piece of concrete.

I've served on the LC three times and, for the most part, performed my duty admirably. The biggest thing I can offer is experience and the knowledge of how to use a suppression shield. People say the best way to learn is through mistakes, and I've definitely made my fair share of those. I think my good friend Vola puts my feelings in better words than I can.

Volaworand wrote:Forumssiders are a forgiving bunch, eventually. See our current High Court Justice's past history of "issues" related to thier time on the LC.

If somone made a mistake, served thier sentance and still remained committed to helping build a better region, that's actually something voters could see in a positive light.

It's not like he kicked a puppy or anything unforgivable.

I also like to think my acceptance into the Coral Guard proves that the region has forgiven me, and it's been an honor to be a pillar of our democracy for these months. I'm a relatively young nation, just turned three in January, but I'm confident that after everything I've been through, I finally have what it takes to be a stellar LC.

There's not really many "positions" an LC can go for. Of course, there's the age old "I'll make there be more roleplay," but that never works out. I'm a fan of double posting, but won't hesitate to uphold the law. So if you maybe wanna see that changed, I'm your sentient building material. I also really love polls and will make sure there's never a period without one.

There sure are a lot of candidates this time around so I hope you'll consider voting for me! If you have any questions, just let me know. Love ya!

Also please leave an upvote cause numbers make dopamine go brrrrrrrr.

Edit 1: Oh, uh, I guess I should include some stuff I've done besides be a Local Councillor so people don't think I'm just some bum.
Let's see. I've been a Legislator for a few years, I was TSP's ambassador to The Rejected Realms once, I've written two General Assembly resolutions and one Security Council Resolution, and I like to think that I'm partially responsible for jumpstarting the World Assembly programs here! It used to just be me posting recommendations on the forum lol. Big shoutout to OWL and all it's members! :D

Good morning, concrete comrade!
Let's do this. ;)

LinkWho should you vote for?

I want a Local Councillor that cares about the South Pacific's Regional Message Board. Someone who will keep the gameside engaged, will keep the rule-breakers in check, and will assist new South Pacificans! But who should I vote for?

*walks in from the shadows*
Why hello there, comrades. It is I, the one and only Stan Melix, Chairman of the United Socialist States of America Melicorium, but you can refer to me as my more widely known alias, "Melix". I am running for a position in the Local Council of the South Pacific.

Hello there! I'm glad to meet you, Melix. Do you actually fit in to all of the things I mentioned?

Of course I do!

  • I like to say hello on the RMB whenever I can, frequently engage in conversations, and sometimes make roleplay posts. According to Article 5, Section 1 of Linkthe Charter of the South Pacific, one of the duties of the Local Council is to encourage activity on the gameside, and I have the potential to do that.

  • It is widely known on the gameside that I greet literally every other new South Pacifican that shows up on the RMB. I will continue to do exactly that, giving new South Pacificans guides to help get them started and a fresh, cold can of Melicorian SPIT. This is one of the major reasons I won TSP's Lampshade Award for RMBer of the Year (of 2020), which you can read more about in the dispatch listed below. I will even recruit people for the Assembly or the South Pacific Special Forces, both of which I am a member of, every once in a while!

    • My high-quality hospitality towards new South Pacificans has inspired Taigama and Ipugao to also be generous towards newbies. I thank them for their help!

  • I regularly check the RMB to read through my missed posts. While I do that, I take note of rule-breaking posts, telling their posters about their rule-breaking. If the violations get bad enough, I poke the Local Council about it, and I then sit back and happily wait for the rule-breaker(s) to be hit with a Council on Regional Security member's banhammer.

  • This is not related to what you said, but in the past, I have made several interesting polls in various regions. In TSP, my polls could maybe be on par with Auphelia's famous polls.

Wow! It seems like you've been in the region for quite a while. Can you tell me more about your history?

I first played NationStates in 2016 as Melicoria, but I ditched it after about a week. Melicorium was created in the South Pacific on February 23, 2020, and I have been a resident of the region ever since. In the time between then and now, I became active on the RMB, made several friends, joined the regional forums and Discord server, ran a good campaign for the Local Council and lost (but I didn't give up hope), enlisted in the South Pacific Special Forces, made more friends, joined the Assembly, ran a better campaign for the Local Council and lost again (but I still didn't give up hope, thus resulting in the campaign that I am currently running), made even more friends, and more recently, started participating in another region. You can read a detailed account of my history on NS in the dispatch listed at the bottom of this page.

That's quite a bit! Now tell me, what are some of your thoughts on running the gameside?

The South Pacificans of the RMB will not have proper enjoyment on the RMB unless the rules are enforced - that's exactly why the rules exist. People donít need to troll, but trolling can ruin the experience for others. Every South Pacifican has the right to freely converse and enjoy themselves on the RMB, as long as their posts follow the RMB rules.. I will ensure that I uphold my beliefs throughout my term by enforcing the rules.


What are some other things unrelated to your campaign that you believe?

  • As a soldier in the SPSF, I uphold the Defenderist ideal, and believe that regions, unless they promote hateful ideologies like fascism, Nazism, and extreme nationalism, have the right to determine their own government and appearance without foreign intervention, and that this right must be protected.

  • For years, there has been a trivial debate in TSP about whether cake or pie is superior. In reality, ice cream is superior to both of them. Hail the eternal Supreme Leader Amerion!

You seem really interesting so far! How about this - are you willing to open up about some of your weaknesses?

  • I feel like my most important weakness is opening up about my weaknesses themselves - but not discussing how I will deal with them. This is likely what caused Volaworand to launch a satirical puppy-kicking scandal against me in the previous LC election as part of his ploy to bring Beepee to power. I plan to deal with this weakness by, well, discussing how I will deal with my weaknesses.

  • This is very rare, but I can get extremely angry at something trivial - an example would be my reaction to the aforementioned scandal. Instead, I can talk it out with the person who provoked me, and we can eventually come to an agreement.

  • Sometimes, I cannot tell whether something is a joke or not - an example of this would be, once again, the puppy-kicking scandal. I can deal with this by simply ignoring or walking away from something if I cannot make it out as serious or a joke.

  • Earlier this month, I blatantly expressed my discontent with Taigama for their also greeting new TSPers and assistance in the enforcement of RMB rules, and saw it as a competition. After a little lesson, I plan to just let others be just as nice and helpful to their fellow South Pacificans as I am.

Thank you for being open with me. Is there anything else you want to say about your campaign?

Thank you for considering my campaign, fellow South Pacifican. I am glad that you want someone like me to be a Local Councillor. If you want a Local Councillor who will do his job well, can relate with the jolly people of the South Pacific, and distribute free SPIT to everyone, vote Melix in the polls!

Of course I will! One more thing before I go - how can I support your campaign, and how can I contact you?

If you want to support my campaign:

  • Change your national flag to this:

    https://imgur.com/h9hsIGk.png
  • If you are able to change your national classification (pretitle), change it to "Melix 2021".

  • If you are on the TSP Discord server, change your nickname to "Melix 2021".

If you want to talk to me or ask me questions privately, you can telegram Melicorium or New Melicorium, or DM me on Discord (Hoy Vux#1391).

Thank you, and see you later!
You know what? Melix 2021!

See you, South Pacifican! Remember to vote Melix for Local Councillor!
