Welcome to the region, and nice factbook! As Xiomera mentioned, most of our community-building takes place outside of the NS site, including the forum and regional wiki, which I highly encourage you to check out. We're looking forward to get to know you!

Good to see you back! If you provided an email address for your account, you should have gotten an email warning, although it may have gotten lost in your inbox.

Hello there :)

The Empire of Xiomera

Apologies for the late update, but this message is to confirm that my existing Cabinet will be continuing into the next Delegacy unchanged, with one exception. Legionas has regretfully had to step down as Sports Minister. I thank them for their service and hope they will be able to return to service in the IDU in the future.

If anyone is interested in the Sports Minister position, please let me know via Discord or by posting a message here. Otherwise, I look forward to continuing our excellent work in the IDU for another term.

To let everyone know, Libertas Omnium Maximus has agreed to take up the role of Sports Minister. I am excited to see what we can look forward to in terms of IDU sporting events.

A note about the IDU map. Several months ago, the Ministry of Cartography announced a pandemic emergency policy that nations would not be removed from the map due to CTE'ing for the remainder of 2020. One rationale for this decision is acknowledgement of how pandemic response could potentially affect Internet access for some players. A new decision was recently made to extend the no-removal policy through at least July 2021. Note this policy won't apply to nations who relocate to a different region.

Welcome home/welcome back to our newer residents (past 4 months): -Rumania, LionsAndTigersAndBears, Old Ceorana, Grand Maghreb, Aertemedia, The space cosby, Astrobolt International, Pramodini, Frogville, Viencia, Mallancaland, Yankeedonia, New Adriatico, Never was New England, Sciongrad, Malabra, Charukeshi, Patatos, The Netlcoatl Islands, Menagerie and Haven, Glenbrook, Parch, Yorklandia, and Giovanniland in IDU. We hope you are enjoying it here. Please ask if you have any questions about getting involved, nation building, roleplay, etc..

If you would like to claim a space on the map, I invite you to visit this thread and submit an application https://theidu.us/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2174. Next update will be in about a week or so.

On that note, I would like to thank Laeral for stepping up to be the new IDUOC Chair. I am pleased to announce that some preliminary planning is already underway for the 2nd IDU Olympiad. If you are interested in joining the conversation, the Olympic Committee has a designated Discord server that you can feel free to join. Just TG/DM Laeral or me and we will get you hooked up with a join link.

I'll also be reaching out to Legionas and Trive 38 with regards to the 2021 IDU Football Championship and a potential baseball tournament, respectively. If you have any suggestions for another event, please do not hesitate to send a TG or DM my way.

I'm once again changing server hosts because this cheaper crowd has worse uptime than the last company. Expect some downtime on the forum and wiki. I've done a backup so hopefully nothing will be lost.

The Divine Federation of Sanctaria

As part of the server transfer, we're going to be changing forum software. That means moving from phpbb to mybb. All posts will be transferred over, but it does mean that some things like quotes or bbcode will not work for a little while until I fix it.

The reason for this move is that the phpbb forum software, while very customisable, is also prone to breaking. A lot. Which happened to us. A lot. So I'm going to sacrifice some of the customisability for stability, which I'm sure people here will appreciate more.

You'll also have to reupload your avatars etc. You may need to reset your password.

There'll be further announcements this evening, I'm hoping to get everything done today.

Also: new features as part of this revamp. More revealed soon.

The Divine Federation of Sanctaria

New forum and the new wiki location have been updated in the WFE. Please do not use the old site anymore. There are new links.

There'll be one more announcement tomorrow about a new feature.

Hello IDU friends! ^_^

There are only two days left to submit your photos to this yearís Forest Photo Contest! Submissions will close on January 21st at midnight GMT. Anyone from a region that has an embassy with us can submit photos.

If you havenít dug out your best photos yet or snapped some great new ones for the Contest, I highly suggest you do so. We have four great categories this year!

You can find all the full information here:

Forest Photo Contest 2020

2020 has undoubtedly been a year like no other. The general consensus is that itís been crazy if not outright terrible. But with the holidays and the new year just around the corner, 2020 is finally coming to an end. Before we move on to a hopefully smoother 2021, though, thereís one last thing that needs to be done: the sixth annual Forest Photo Contest!

Here's what you need to know:

🌲 We have four categories once again this year:

  • LinkTrees (this category is permanent each year)

  • LinkLight & Dark (photos that display astounding lights and/or shades)

  • LinkSeasons (photos that represent one of the seasons or a certain time of year)

  • Link2020 (any photo that resonates with or represents this crazy year)

🌲 You may submit up to 12 photos total. You may choose how to divide those among the different categories, but please do not submit more than 12.

🌲 Please post your photos in the appropriate thread on our forums, located Linkhere. You may also submit photos via a link to an image hosting site in a telegram to Mount Seymour.

🌲 The photos must be taken by you, but can be taken at any time (not just during the contest).

🌲 Anyone in Forest or in a region which has an embassy with Forest may submit photographs for the Contest.

🌲 Timing:

  • Submissions will be open from December 18 at 00:00 GMT (7:00pm Dec 18 EST) to January 23rd at 23:59 GMT.

  • Voting will begin on January 23rd at 23:59 GMT and end January 30th at 23:59 GMT.

🌲 Voting will take place on a Google Form. Needless to say, please no puppeteering!

🌲 The photographers with the top three photographs in each category will have their photos acknowledged on our RMB, on our World Factbook Entry, and potentially in our next foreign update. A banner will also be created with a collage of the top photos to applaud the winners, and participants in the competition will be encouraged to add it as their nation's custom banner. Forest's flag will also be changed to the 1st place photos in each category for a week after the Contest.

Now it's time to head out and start photographing! Good luck to everyone!

Any questions about the Contest should be directed to Mount Seymour.

Read dispatch

You can head over to Forest's forums (https://forest.freeflarum.com/t/photo-contest) to submit your photos, or you can telegram links to the images to me.

Happy submitting! :)

Iím leery of using Discord as much as I have been with mIRC. Not totally convinced of the device security aspects, as mIRC gave me all sorts of issues. And I have RL concerns that I have to take into account as I actually have a lot on things on my plate, and only so much time in the day. Thatís why I stepped back a few years ago. Priorities, folks, priorities.
