This thread is now deprecated. Please visit the new Citizenship Application thread here.[hr] Welcome to The North Pacific. We highly recommend you apply for membership in the Regional Assembly. Members of this body can: Vote in elections; Hold public office; Debate and vote on legislation; File court cases; And much more. Step 1: Meet the requirements Membership in the Regional Assembly does not require WA membership, but you must meet the following requirements: You must have a nation in The North Pacific; You must not have more than one account on this forum (Administrators may grant exemptions under special circumstances); You must not use a proxy server; You must not pose a threat to regional security, as determined by the Vice Delegate. Step 2: Take the oath Fill in and post the following application: You can view the criminal code you are promising to obey HERE. When registering for the Regional Assembly, one has to refer to their actual nation WITHOUT PREFIXES OF ANY SORT (i.e. the nation name you type in when logging on to NS). Basically, either: 1. A link to your nation on NS (the tag helps), 2. Referring to your nation by its name itself (for example, Olvern instead of The Republic of Olvern in the registration post), is NECESSARY for the Speaker's Office to process your application. This rule will be enforced strictly by myself. Step 3: Participate in the region Most of the time, your application will be approved within a few days. When this happens, you will be placed in a usergroup that allows you to post in forums set aside for the Regional Assembly. You are allowed to vote in any voting thread that begins AFTER you are admitted. Please note that to stay a member of the Regional Assembly, you must log into the forum every so often, maintain a nation in The North Pacific, and vote on matters before the Regional Assembly from time to time. For more details on these membership requirements, ask the Speaker or consult the Legal Code (chapter 6). Step 4: Update your membership record as necessary You must post in this thread if: Your TNP Nation changes; You want to resign from the Regional Assembly. If you have any questions, ask the Speaker or their designated deputy. They will be more than happy to help you get started. Enjoy your time in The North Pacific! Try to keep all off-topic posts out of this topic. It will help streamline the process.
