Ministry of Culture
Regional Poll Suggestion Thread

One of the many duties of the Ministry of Culture is to manage the polls that a given user might see on the game-side regional page. Though it is but a simple task, coming up with polls can be difficult, so we allow members of the community at large to share their thoughts on the sort of polls they'd like to see posted. Ideally, we'd like to have enough ideas so that a poll will always be running, but the ministry can only achieve that with your help!

Whether it's meta, involving entertainment, or concerning real-life, as long as your poll is engaging and abides by the below guidelines, it might find its way to the site! If we do use one of your ideas, you will be credited in the poll's description. Nothing says enticing like recognition, right?

Suggested Formatting
Please provide the following information in your post:
Code:
 
[Poll Title]

1) First choice
2) Second choice
.
.
.
n) n-th choice
It helps, but is not required, to provide a short explanation for your poll and why you think it would be worthwhile.

Guidelines
==> Polls will last at maximum three days and have no more than ten answer choices in total. Only residents of the region will be permitted to vote.
==> Refrain from suggesting polls with binary answer choices. For example, no simple yes/no, black/white, 0/1 choices. These are not only boring but do not convey much information.
==> Try not to implement any answer choices that fit the category of "other" or "not applicable". We want individuals to make a firm decision to a poll relevant to them.
==> Don't make your answer choices too long. Most users have short attention spans, and the more choices you have and the longer each is, the less likely to one will participate.

Examples
The following polls are ones I would consider both successful and interesting. Check them out if you're stumped for ideas:
-- Leader for a Day by Verdrassil
-- What is your favorite type of play? by Morlockland
-- What technology would you seek to improve through research? by Stratarin
-- The Aristocratic Age by Verdrassil
-- How would you be best able to contribute to The East Pacific and make a name for yourself? by Fedele

I SEE YOU
As a Roleplayer, I find the overall idea and relationship of various species in TEP Evolved as fascinating especially considering their unique history, culture, and even their role in nations. As such, I wanted to see which species is TEP's favorite as well as introduce our little guys out to everybody else in Nationstates to build up their popularity as well as hopefully start amazing conversations about our species or roleplay in general.

Favorite TEP Species/Race

Click Here for reference

1) Felines
2) Lupines
3) Vulpines
4) Humans
5) Nekomimis
6) Dwarves
7) Procynes
8) Ursines
9) Aurians

What is your favorite part about roleplaying with people in TEP?

  • The friendships I can develop! I have met many interesting and unique people while roleplaying.

  • Community involvement! I enjoy helping shape the region's stories and being a part of a greater whole.

  • Storytelling! I have a passion for crafting interesting events and story-lines between nations.

  • Political intrigue! There are many alliances and deals to be made, and I want to make my mark on them.

  • Artistic expression! I enjoy seeing the maps and pictures that show every nation is unique.

  • Strategy and planning! I'm at home when I spend time creating crafty plans to stay ahead of my rivals.

What do you do when you log into NationStates?

1) Visit the NS forums and talk with all kinds of people!

2) Talk with others on our Regional Message Board! (RMB)

3) Answer all of my nation's issues and check out what happens!

4) I only come on Nationstates for its awesome events!

5) I don't really come on Nationstates much. I'm usually somewhere in TEP's off-site forums or Discord server!

6) Nationstates? Why would I care about that? Just a bunch of squabbling nations.

Reason: I made this poll because I realized that many people do different things when they enter NS, and it would be nice to see what they do. This information may also be able to be used for events later.

First, a silly one.

How do you pronounce @Queen Yuno's name?

1. The right way.
2. The wrong way.
3. I had never thought about it before but now I'm second guessing myself.


More serious, now.

Which of the following best describes the ideal primary role of a regional military for The East Pacific?
1. To generate activity among interested nations and showcase our region's strengths to the outside world.
2. To invade regions and take them as permanent colonies or temporary holdings.
3. To defend helpless regions from invasion and liberate them from occupation.
4. To protect The East Pacific and to deploy, when necessary, to protect allies and advance foreign policy objectives of the region.
Don't take my word for it, see what others have said!

I'd like to hope we all pronounce it the "right" way. ;)

On that note, I like both of the more serious polls you provided and will be using them shortly! Thanks for the ideas!

Why did you decide to stay in the East Pacific when you joined NationStates?

1) The regional message board seemed to be super fun!

2) I decided to just stick around the region and see if it was worth staying here!

3) Way too many recruitment telegrams, I'm gonna stay where I am no matter what they say!

4) The friendly welcome telegrams convinced me to stay!

5) I don't really care about the regions aspect of NationStates and never moved from here.

6) I stayed for another reason! (other)
