    When SC members are specifically highlighted on the WFE and nations are encouraged to endorse them, we take a look at their list of nations who are not endorsing them and compare it to the other SC members, the VD and the Delegate. We reach out to those on that list who have shown they 1)do endorse and 2)perhaps endorsed the top 2 or the ones previously featured. We try to get the most likely to endorse to endorse the rest of the SC, but particularly the featured SC members. For good measure we can reach out to the entire list, but the ones more likely to listen should be a priority. I would also combo that outreach with posts on the RMB. These would be less likely to actually generate endorsements, but it would generate awareness and over time, perhaps develop a habit for newcomers to be encouraged to endorse SC members, and make SC members known the region at large.

    I would like all SC members to have about 900 endorsements, as Deropia had set out as a goal back in May. When some of the less frequently active SC members slip or fall behind, I want those who are around more to pick up the slack. Our numbers are rather close right now so this is the best time to push a little more and keep us close to that goal.

    Mr. Vice Delegate,

    I am unsure currently of protocols regarding applications made to join the Security Council, but can you elaborate on the current statuses of the two applications to join the Security Council?

    I am unsure currently of protocols regarding applications made to join the Security Council, but can you elaborate on the current statuses of the two applications to join the Security Council? [/quote]Certainly. The Security Council has considered both applications, and has offered feedback to the applicants. One applicant has indicated their application will be withdrawn, and I am awaiting confirmation of such.

    I'm going to try something I floated last term, and which I hope will encourage me (and dare I say, future Vice Delegates) to consistently monitor and keep track of SC member endorsements. Simply enough, I mean to record the endorsement counts and featured status of all the members of the SC, as well as the Delegate and Vice Delegate. I will do these rounds along with my citizenship checks periodically, but at least once a week.

    Endorsement Check: 10/17/18 (post-major update)
    Siwale: 1132
    Pallaith: 981
    McM: 872
    GBM: 864
    Sil: 833
    Lore: 824
    SillyString: 818
    Bootsie: 804
    Roman: 802
    Gladio: 787

    The featured SC members were Lore and Roman. Lore has been rotated out for Gladio.
    The previous SC alert was for SillyString. The current SC alert is for Gladio.

    I like this.

    Would you be able to note the total change in endorsements for SC members?

    The answer is almost certainly yes, but what precisely did you mean by total change? A net figure aggregating all SC endorsement changes? Or an aggregate of each individual SC member’s endorsement changes collected from all the checks? Because I don’t think the first is very valuable, but the second would be and would also be very easy to do.

    I was thinking the former. I thought it would be interesting to note whether overall, have the SC's endorsements levels increased or not during the period. The latter may be interesting as well.

    The previous SC alert was for Gladio. The current SC alert is for Roman.

    Here we clearly see the effects of Z-day and all the fluctuation in membership. I also employed a new form of endotarting TG where I pointed out the featured SC members. In the next round, when Z-day is further in the past, I hope I can observe whether that additional push yields additional endorsements for the featured SC members.

    There was much improvement from the last check. It looks like endotarting and alerts have more of an impact than the features and the name dropping in my endotarting TG, though it's only been a bit more than a week since I tried employing that method.

    Overall, looking good, taking into consideration McM's trip and SillyString's schedule. The alerts seem to be keeping things going for the lower endorsed SC members. The second week the alert is active appears to have a clear drop, so I think I will try increasing the frequency to weekly. Gladio's last alert was a dispatch, so I have employed a TG for the second. Individual tarting efforts on the part of the SC still appear to be the most reliable method.

    Clearly the TG alert was far and away the superior alert as it gave Gladio a massive boost. With this in mind I will be favoring those going forward, and will begin employing them on a weekly basis. Endotarting efforts were likely hampered by the deployment of the NPA, as pilers were utilized. The holiday also may have playd a role, and caused some slipping in endotarting efforts.

    The previous SC alert was for Bootsie. The current SC alert is for McM.

    We continue to see big returns from TG alerts. There's also a pattern with the same few SC members being repeatedly featured. I will continue to have the WFE feature focus on the SC members in most need, but will try an alert for some of the SC members with less alert traffic. Due to the proximity of WADP, this alert will be a dispatch.

    The featured SC members are SillyString and Roman.
    The previous SC alert was for McM. The current SC alert is for Lore.

    The WFE features appear to maintained more or less status quo for the SC members at the bottom of the rankings. McM's alert combined with his tarting efforts yielded the biggest one-week endorsement boost we've seen since I started keeping track. Overall it was a good week for all of us, even Gladio's drop was better than last week, something i attribute to the release of WADP. It hasn't been that long since Gladio's last alert, however, so in bringing attention to those SC members who haven't had alerts in a while, I'm scheduling Lore for this week. With the WADP anniversary release, this will also be a dispatch alert.
