Alright, guys... With the announcement by the Viridian Entente of discontinuing their non-aggression pacts, this brought up a good discussion of what really does contribute to a solid diplomatic bond. In my humble opinion, a show of effort is what is really needed to get two parties close together. You can have all the formalities and documents that you want, but in the end, they're just words on a sheet of paper. In my humble opinion, two parties, or in this case, two alliances need to get down and dirty and create something wonderful from their own sweat and tears.
This is what I propose:
I want an interalliance team, led by [or may solely be] two nations, each nation being a member of a different alliance, to create a project that exemplifies unity and comraderie between the two alliances. It can be any sort of project. Examples of such things could be research projects, game tournaments, [OOC meetups], contests, films, and many, many other things I haven't mentioned.
Each team may submit as many entries as they'd like. The projects will be graded by a panel of judges and there will be one winning project. No runners up. What is the prize, you ask? Well... Here it goes.
Each member of the winning pair of nations shall be awarded one million dollars. That's right. Each of the two nations that participate in the winning project shall get a million dollars for their efforts. [Note: Because of the way the foreign aid system works on Cyber Nations, it's guaranteed one nation may get slightly more than the other, but I'll try to keep it as even as possible. Also, neither nation will ever get LESS than a million dollars. They only potentially can get more.]
Now, who will judge this contest? Well, I will, for one, and also I will accept applications from any nations part of an alliance. No indys for this one [except me]. Just send me a private message with your nation's name, which alliance the nation belongs to, and just one or two sentences saying why you'd like to be a judge. I will only allow one nation from any given alliance to be part of the judging panel, but the judging panel will have unlimited seats, except for the number of alliances. So, whether your alliance has ten countries or five hundred, the alliance will get one representative.
So, here's the proposal. If you all like the idea as is, I'll put it into effect soon. I'm aiming for the contest to be over December 31, 2006, and announcing the winners on Cyber Nations's First Anniversary on January 6, 2007. If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments, feel free to voice them.
Thank you for your time.
