Main Plaza: Greetings & Announcements / Is There Anybody Out There...?
« Last post by Praugsia on September 15, 2017, 06:13:01 PM »
Greetings old friends! I'm sure you guys are just flabbergasted to see me back...or not. Oh wait...no one's here. Well then, guess I'll just get right to the point then.

I joined this forum back in 2007, when I was a measly 13 years old. Like most 13 year old boys, I was rude, immature, and a wee bit too silly. Anyway, I want to say it was well within my first month of "riveting" role play that I was rude to a fellow member and was promptly temp-banned (and rightfully so!). I left for quite a while and returned a few months later ready to take the stage and realize my full potential as a fully competent and mature role player!... OK, not so much. Let's just say my RP was...less than competent. In a forum of mostly mature teenagers and adults, I kind of stood out like a sore thumb. My command of the English language was a bit less than adequate, and my role plays weren't very interesting. I did have a basic understanding of international politics and the different types of government at the time, but it was just that: basic. And let's face it...like most people my age at the time, I was a little annoying. But through all of it, you guys put up with me and my shortcomings. My time on this forum was extremely enjoyable. Back when this place was a bustling hub of chitter-chatter, I would come home from school excited as hell to jump on my laptop and log into NSA. Every day I would look forward to coming here and forgetting the troubles of teenage life (as minor as they appear now). I spent years as an active member of this forum, and after a while, I became bored of it. My interest in international politics and government had faded, so I made my leave...several times. I came and went quite often. I'm not even sure how many times. But eventually I said my final goodbye and went on with my life.

So here I am at 23 years old sitting in my apartment, when suddenly a random thought crosses my mind: "What ever happened to NS Africa?" I think about it for a moment and realize I'm finally ready to get back into things. I'm an adult now...my understanding of politics and government is much more than what it was in my teenage years. I'm finally ready to get back on the forum and be the mature, knowledgeable role player I know I can be! I enthusiastically race to my computer and type the line "nationstatesafrica" into my google browser. The link pops up, and with a sense of hopeful nostalgia I click it, eager to see what's been going on without me. What do I find? Let's just say it wasn't at all what I had hoped. The forum is...dead. The last post, submitted in January, is about the very same issue I'm posting about now. This once vibrant theater of politics, war, and trade has faded. It saddens me to see what became of this wonderful place. The talent here was astonishing. You guys were amazing! Your role plays kept me entertained for a long time, and I would have loved to see new stories from you guys. But maybe this isn't the end. Maybe things will turn around. I certainly hope so.

Hopefully at least one of you will see this. Maybe none of you will. But in the off chance that things do pick up again, I'd definitely love to take part in this forum again. I'll put my email address at the bottom of this post. Please contact me if this forum is revived! I'll be waiting.

Best regards,

Paul

If you feel you can resurrect the site, the RP and the community then I wish you good luck.  I personally gave up that role a while back as it was on life support for a long time. When I stopped, the site had been fully cleaned up, all junk accounts gone, the RP boards sorted and cleaned, and repeated attempts to contact the membership had gone unanswered.  It was to the point I would login once a month and time after time, there wasn't even admin report of people logging in, and so I eventually gave up.  Now today I thought, hey once more as it is a new year, give it a go, and I find that in the last 6 months there has been some breaths on the old, cold, dead coals that once was a thriving community - and that my empire has been dismissed.  I will leave my account for a while yet, to see if nothing else, there will be a response or not.  But, if by Jan 31 there is no response then this will be the final transmission.


Sincerely,

The United Kingdom of the Northern Atlantic,
God Save the King!

With the Svionian economy stabilizing, there is an increased demand for tropical and sub-tropical fruit as well as a general demand for all manner of civilian consumer goods, ranging from fashion and toys to sports cars and petroleum based fuel and lubricants.

In order to stimulate international trade, the Svionian government has decided to reduce custom tariffs on both imported wares of national consumer interest.
