March Endorsement Drive

After quite a hectic Delegate election, Markanite has been named interim Delegate of XKI! Unfortunately, compared to his predecessor's numbers and the current number of WA nations in XKI, his endorsement count is grossly inadequate. Over a hundred nations in XKI have not endorsed him; this jeopardizes the safety of the region and risks exposing XKI to raiders.

To spur endorsement activity, the Delegate's office, the WA Secretariat, and the Ten thousand Islands Brigade of Official Endorsers (TIBOE) will be holding a March Endorsement Drive to increase the endorsement count of the Delegate and lower the number of nations below the minimum endorsement cap. Our goal for this event is that by the end of March, the Delegate will have 380 endorsements and the list of nations under 20 endorsements will be considerably shorter.

If you have received a "Notification" from this Dispatch, it is because you are not yet endorsing the Delegate! Your nation is "tagged" in the spoiler below. The best way to avoid getting too many notifications in the future is to endorse the Delegate!

Why are Delegate endorsements important?

Great question! Why does it matter if anyone endorses the Delegate. There are three crucial reasons:

  • Endorsing the Delegate makes the region more secure. In NationStates, the Delegate seat is the mechanism by which raiders take over a region. As a fairly large region, and a region with an active founder, 10000 Islands is largely isolated from these risks, and could never be destroyed completely. However, rival regions do have an interest in securing the Delegate seat, even if just momentarily, to embarrass the region. Each additional endorsement the Delegate has is one more player that raiders would have to have on their side in order to embarrass the region like this.

  • Endorsing the Delegate increases your power in the World Assembly. Delegates in the WA have special voting powers where they get to cast a vote worth 1 + the number of endorsements the Delegate has. Our goal is to get Delegate Markanite to 350 endorsements which would give him 350 votes in the World Assembly. Why is this good for you? The 10000 Islands Delegate always Linkvotes the result of forum WA voting polls, which means you get an outsized influence on how those 350 votes will be cast. But in order to get there, you have to endorse the Delegate.

  • A large WA vote is crucial to advocating for defender values. To our core, 10000 Islands is a defender region. Even for members who aren't actively participating in TITO, our region's stated political purpose is the safety and sovereignty of innocent regions that did not ask to become part of some "raiding and defending game". However, sometimes raiders get a strategic leg up and a Security Council Liberation, which removes the password from a region thereby preventing raiders from destroying it, is the last chance to preserve the community. At moments such as those, we need to make sure our WA vote is at its absolute strongest to preserve the sovereignty of defenseless regions.
