[anchor=game][/anchor][color=purple][center][size=150][b]XKI Game-Side[/b][/center][/size][/color]







[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]This month our favorite Regional Pollster, [nation]Jabberwocky[/nation], brought us two polls themed around the holidays!  The first one asked Islanders if they [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=poll/p=179765]agreed to Christmas music in public[/url] and the second one asked them if they [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=poll/p=180101]liked eggnog for the holidays.[/url][/font]



[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]In the first poll, there were 170 voters: 16 (9.41%) said “no” because Christmas music in public was annoying, 70 (41.17%) said “yes” because it placed them in the holiday spirit, 18 (10.58%) said “no” because it infringed upon their rights as non-Christians, 12 (7.05%) said “yes” because it is spiritually uplifting, 18 (10.58%) said “no” because of the commercialism advertised in those songs, 20 (11.76%) said “yes” because they could hear the sleigh bells ringing, and 16 (9.41%) said "Humbug” in a pirate way to express their feelings that Christmas music in public is insincere and hypocritical.[/font]



[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]In the second poll, there were 129 voters: 44 (34.10%) said “yes”  because eggnog is delicious and essential for the holidays, 73 (56.58%) said “no” because it is an abominable, ghastly concoction, and 12 (9.30%) said “yes” as long as the eggnog was heavily spiked.[/font]





[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Much like last month, it was miserable to look at every December RMB post...well, maybe I’m exaggerating.  The RMB was [i]slightly[/i] less busy than the previous month, but I do know one thing that didn’t change: the abundance of absolutely hilarious moments![/font]

[anchor=meet][/anchor][color=purple][center][size=150][b]Meet The Nation[/b][/center][/size][/color]



[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]This month our Emissary Update staff interviewed [nation]Jabberwocky[/nation], the longtime Regional Pollster.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Hello Jabberwocky! Could I ask you some few questions for the Emissary Report?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: Of course! Fire away.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: In first of all, how did you joined NS and why did you decided to join 10000 Islands?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: I first read about NationStates four years ago inside the back cover of a novel by Max Barry; perhaps it was Syrup. I thought it sounded intriguing and tried it out. I drifted about for a few months, trying out various regions. As a WA member, I read Lenlyvit's proposal to Commend Europe. The bit about defending appealed to me. I asked Ms. L how one becomes a defender; she suggested The Grey Wardens or XKI. Thus the 10000 Islands became my home; here I remain.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: After you joined the region, what made you stay here?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: As I strolled around the grounds, everyone was friendly and helpful, open minded and tolerant. That atmosphere appealed to me then, and still does.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: When and how did you become the Regional Pollster?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: Nearly three years ago, the Ministry of Labor posted a job opening for Pollster to replace an outgoing Pollster. I applied for the job and somehow fooled them enough to get it. Back in those days we had two Pollsters.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: How do you usually get the ideas for those polls?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: I get ideas from...the news, from real life. Or I make something up. Or I steal from someone else.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: In the past, you used to do a monthly regional newspaper called The Mad Surfer, which was a predecessor to the Emissary Report, and many Islanders, myself included, were once interviewed by it. Is there anything about it you would like to tell us?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: TMS was a spur of the moment flash in the pan that got lucky enough to tickle the fancy of the reading public, probably due to its irreverent approach. Not a precursor to the Emissary Report, it ran concurrently. But, as trends do, TMS eventually lost its luster. Fortunately, the Emissary Report is a worthy successor.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Well, I suppose that this is it. Is there anything you want to say for the interview?[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: Yes. The best is yet to come.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Haivon: Thank you for your time![/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Jabberwocky: Are you kidding? For an old pal? No problem![/font]


[hr][center][font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]Hope to see you all next month, your XKI Update Staff is signing off![/font]
