Hello there, this is an update from your Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jimbojoy. I am attempting a new style of update via audio, and this is the trial episode. I need to know if this style is easy to follow, and if it is informative enough. I enjoyed making it, and it does feel as though with this medium we can break away from the tedium of having to trawl through articles to mine information. For example you can this to this podcast whilst playing another game, having a cup of tea, or hanging out with Diakun.
In this pilot, I discuss our new ambassadorial team, relations with nations like Canada, Ireland and Norway, and finish off with some info on Hungarian/Romanian relations. In future I would to stream it via a webplayer, makes it easier for everyone, but this is a trial and so is available as an MP3 download from the following link:
I need your help in deciding what kind of content to push through these information dispatches, do you have any ideas on anything you'd like me to cover on the news/history front? Got a story? - PM me.
Finally I am announcing that tonight the MoFA HQ staff will be meeting at 8 o'clock using skype in an audio and text based meeting. This is so we can discuss EVEN MORE easily than on IRC what roles the uMoFAs will be taking this month, briefing all staff on updates, and setting up reporting chains for ambassadors - whom if you are reading this, you will find out who your bosses are soon!
There's still time to apply to become an ambassador, check this list to see our vacancies, and send me a PM application in-game.
Thank you for reading!
Minister of Foreign Affairs
