  1. [quote name='Rooman33' date='25 June 2010 - 11:15 AM' timestamp='1277478923' post='2350027'] Really nice looking publication! OOC: Did you do this in InDesign? [/quote] Thanks for the compliment, and no, this is done in Microsoft Word 2007.

After resigning as Assoc Director of BCOM due to RL (going to school, etc.) you went off the deep end, changing your AA in-game, never actually resigning from BCOM, and you asked for no protection or assistance from us. This is all very uncharacteristic of you, so I'm not sure I get it. Nevertheless, I see
  3. [quote name='PotFace' date='23 June 2010 - 09:42 AM' timestamp='1277300517' post='2347641'] Well, I suppose the purpose of BCOM is much the same as other alliances - to compete in the cyberverse. Our main objective (vision, ideal) is to "win", or otherwise become a great alliance. We're looking to "out-do" as many as we can, on as many fronts as we can. We pay more attention to the issues at hand than we do the vision itself. For us, it's a series of small victories that we are sure will eventually add-up to establishing ourselves as an epic alliance. [/quote] It also helps that we hav
  4. [quote name='Daikos' date='20 June 2010 - 09:43 PM' timestamp='1277084602' post='2344407'] So much for "moving on". [/quote] That article isn't there to rehash it. Everything that's news that takes place in BCOM since the previous edition is posted in the Chronicle, because that's what the Chronicle is...BCOM news.
  5. [center][img]http://www.blackstonecommission.com/forums/images/seals/DoP.png[/img] [size="4"][color="#FF0000"][b]Department of Propaganda[/b][/color][/size] Welcome to the second edition of the Blackstone Chronicle. The ongoing plague commonly known as "Real Life" has taken it's toll on BCOM this month, so I apologize for this shorter edition. However, it's been nothing short of eventful here at BCOM and today we're still around to celebrate our 2 month anniversary! Hope you enjoy.

  6. Since the NOIR debate is still continuing, I might as well throw another 2 cents in. I'm actually glad this thread brought the issues with NOIR to light, which are quite simple to resolve, in all honesty. Regarding the time frame and not being committed enough to stick it out, it boils down to a lack of communication, which I addressed in our application. From the outside looking in, as a new applicant, no expectations are set informing applicants of the time frame they should expect. People aren't accustomed to waiting several weeks, or months, to get approved. Post the expectations in t

  8. This thread should have ended days ago. Let it go, Thrawn. The past is behind us all and the future is ahead. Let's look towards it.
  9. [quote name='jerdge' date='16 June 2010 - 11:43 AM' timestamp='1276703017' post='2339510'] I don't think that CN2 would affect CN1 much, as everybody invested a lot here and (obviously) not there (yet), and thus we'd all give precedence to CN1 if we had to choose which one to focus on. The worst that could happen is that CN2 dies after the first few months, but ITT it's more probable that it evolves into something completely new, maybe with mostly different leaders and communities. [/quote] To be honest, I think it'd go the other way. Over time, CN2 would gain momentum and CN1 would die
  10. [quote name='Vladimir' date='15 June 2010 - 11:07 PM' timestamp='1276657644' post='2339003'] We used to have this debate on a weekly basis, with people imagining that a score reset would somehow magically return us to the naive days of January 2006. Fact is that things have advanced a lot since then -- technically, politically, strategically, socially -- and these advances will remain. Consequently you would see large alliances and blocs forming immediately, complete with complex organisational and diplomatic structures, and moving to dominate the new terrain. The only real effect would be
  11. [quote name='ty345' date='15 June 2010 - 10:58 PM' timestamp='1276657107' post='2338992'] It would have to have completely different equations and game mechanics, or everyone would just resolve into what they do here. [/quote] Can't say I agree with that. The current formula is a success or it wouldn't still be around. However, there are so many variables that we create as players and things that have been done that can't be undone, that it would be nice to start in a new world from the ground up, imo.
  12. This poll is to see how many people would play CN2, if Admin were to create it. This does not mean resetting the current CN or shutting it down. I realize we have CN:TE, but it's not the same. I've often heard talk of people wishing they had the opportunity to play the game over, from the beginning with everyone on even ground, and seeing how a new world would develop. I'm in that group. Sure, many alliances would carry over and start out with a large player base, albeit they would all have small nations. We would also see brand new alliances and opportunities for everyone. The possibil

[quote name='Erich Ludendorff' date='09 June 2010 - 03:00 PM' timestamp='1276110009' post='2330441'] At the End of Days, during the Great Admin Reset, [b]the Rapture will sweep the faithful to a new world, where all our infrastructure and technology are equal. We will have a new chance to create our utopia.[/b] You will be stuck in this distraught world, fighting endless, brutal wars for NS advantages and misperceived political leverage.

  14. Everything worked out for everyone in the end. I don't hold any ill will towards NOIR or the black sphere. From their point of view, I, for one, was being arrogant during the app process and from mine...so were they. As BMv2 pointed out, we just didn't click. All of that was settled and we withdrew the app in good standing and everyone on both sides feeling better about it, I believe. Not knowing the inner workings of BCOM or the people there, I can certainly understand how NOIR was apprehensive to admit us, and although we do know of a couple of people who were friendly to us while sp

Each embassy created in our forums gets a personalized tag that the ambassadors wear when they're masked. I figured they would look good here too.
