    The Six Point Agenda

    Two weeks passed since the first meeting between the Dorsett sisters and Osman. To the surprise of the sisters, their mother didn't impede the investigation, and her cooperation ensured that the results were going to be accurate. In the entertainment room where they met before, Claidie, Alice...

    Expert Help Needed

    Step 1. Create a new nation. You can name it whatever you want. Step 2. If the new nation was not founded in TNP, move the new nation into TNP. Step 3. As the others have described, post in https://forum.thenorthpacific.org/topic/6924111/, saying something to the effect over "My new citizenship...

    Comprehensive Overhaul of Elections Act (COE Act)

    What I'm trying to do is keep to the whole point of why we did instant runoff voting, which was to not have runoffs unless we're absolutely sure that the election is hopelessly deadlocked.

    Comprehensive Overhaul of Elections Act (COE Act)

    I don't like the idea of a runoff between losers to see who loses first. I'd rather do a Borda count. What about this? 1. Check if order of elimination changes the eventual winner. If no, eliminate both simultaneously. If yes... 2. Countback to previous rounds. If this doesn't break the tie...

    Comprehensive Overhaul of Elections Act (COE Act)

    I'd rather we have an ironclad solution to even the most remote possibility. I don't think anyone wants the election commission to be deadlocked because we failed to consider all the possibilities. So, what is the solution to my scenario?

    Comprehensive Overhaul of Elections Act (COE Act)

    Ah, okay. I feel silly for not getting the head-to-head stuff right away, but I understand it now. What about this highly unusual situation, which I'm not even sure is mathematically possible... Bobberino and Fregerson are locked in a perfect tie and can't be broken by countback or...

    Comprehensive Overhaul of Elections Act (COE Act)

    To be honest, I'm really not understanding the practical application of this idea. I need to see an example of how eliminating a specific candidate first could cause a difference in the final result, and what would happen if you couldn't break the tie between the candidates to be eliminated...

    Comprehensive Overhaul of Elections Act (COE Act)

    Because I was looking at the markup version and the words were still there. Probably should update it.

    Cartography Discussion and Off-Topic Megathread

    Lore does not process a single claim and post a new map immediately. He prefers to do claims in batches. A new update is coming soon, though, hopefully in the next couple of days. I will pass on a suggestion that perhaps Lore marks claims as "Accepted" in a timely manner, well before doing an...

    Cartography Discussion and Off-Topic Megathread

    @Nubt II of Mortipal You will know when the map update is released. Lore typically does a good job at flagging denied requests, and with greater frequency than actually putting together an update. If you haven't seen a "denied" message yet, you're probably fine. You'll know for sure when it...

    Comprehensive Overhaul of Elections Act (COE Act)

    I feel like 31 could be split into two sections that depend on the scenario. The "tied for one position" bit is what is ambiguous. For instance, do... 31. If at any point in counting the votes for a given race two or more candidates are tied with the highest number of votes and no other...

    The Democracy Dispatch, Part 1 - An Extraordinary Speaker Election

    A very interesting read. Do you have any plans to propose a bill to clean up the election law and fix the ambiguity in how ties for elimination are handled?

    The NPA Flag Act

    You might find more success if you would actually read the rules. The vote was canceled because three citizens objected. To override this objection, a number of people equal to or exceeding 1/3rd of quorum must motion for an immediate vote, including the proposer (that's you). Currently quorum...
