Opening word, Day 15

keep-calm-were-not-going-anywhere

With delight we present to you vNews second edition of Round 151!

 

 

Welcome back to vNews for this second edition. With the trade slowing down a little bit in Virtua we have had a relatively easy week. Resource problems were mainly felt by the oil industry and there were several days of inactivity due to the lack of Engines, Pumps, Plastic and Oil. To overcome the problems Tobilo secured ships and Virtua is back in action again. Each day over 400 squst of products are shipped to Virtua to keep the economy going.

Much like the economy things also slowed down in politics again. Whereas we saw a lot of action in the first week with shootings, a new President and Vice President. The council now seems to have abandoned their posts, after the current council was formed there was quite some activity and they seemed to be working on laws. If you take a look in the Council Room currently however you’ll enter an empty building with a small layer of dust setting in.

Internationally we see Ibisha still going strong and Cyberia and Digitalia almost abandoned. In order to keep Ibisha and Virtua going the other 2 countries are mainly being used for resources and products such as plastic which are imported back.

Where there was a big announcement of the Mr(s) Miniconomy contest this round it stays awfully quiet in the club at the moment. The only activity noticeable are the banners which are posted by the contestants ; Martijn5, Tyc00n and of course our Virtuan contestant Mystq.

Furthermore in this edition we present more statistics gathered by dj ricky, this time he took a closer look at past Virtuan Top 10 places. We also had Riviat in a writing spree, it seems each of his personalities found the time to write something for vNews, which we are thankful for of course.
We have a fresh student player explaining how he enjoyed his first week of Miniconomy, viraxje taking a closer look at the effect of Towers and of course last but not least the turnover statistics.

 

Enjoy the read!

Overview of the second week

Hello and welcome back to the second vNews-edition of the 135th trading period! Last week we had a hell of an edition and this edition has a lot of articles as well. We’d like to thank our writers and guest-writers for those.

This week quite some things have happened in our tiny internet Federation. In this week’s edition a summary of them.

The Virtuan Lawbook, a pain in the ass for a lot of Virtuan citizens. It’s too much law, too unclear and way too long. But since this week the Council seems to make speed with the improving of the Virtuan Law (VL). Vicepresident Bleech rewrote the VL together with consul riemer_1990 and White Queen, the mayor of Centropolis. President Mystq started a club named ‘Discuss Virtua Lawbook’ which is meant to involve the Virtuan citizens in the rewritement of the VL. It’s a succes. A lot of Virtuans are happy that the Virtuan Government actually does something about this problem and are waiting for the final approval of the new VL by the Council.

The Virtuan Law is too big and too unclear

Our manager YAN seemed to make a tiny mistake this week. The ‘highly-experienced’ Editor (according to the head-editor in Fed. Req.) tested the newsfeed by trying to post a newsfeed for one minute. The newsfeedsystem automaticly made 1hour from that 1minute which would mean the feed named Podje is awesome and had the following text in it: test would leave in 1hour and not 1 minute.

The head-editor Tresias Aegirsson who is currently resigning from his duties did not like that and based on one-eyewitness he requested the removal of the editor-degree of YAN. After the request was made a lot of Virtuans were angry. For example big daddy and ikenco requested the keeping of YAN his degree, as he is doing a very good job with vNews. Thank you for that! Currently Federal Coordinator and the angry head-editor are working on a solution. We will keep you posted!

Several people didn’t want YAN to lose his degree, ‘as he is doing a very good job with vNews’

Last but not least we would like to point out a big mistake of the Virtuan Consul of Education kageshukuun who accidentally gave Podje the Lawyer degree. Some side-information: Podje is trying to get the degree for ages now but he never actually got it (lawfully). The Federals are requested to remove it. If they will execute this request is still a question.

WELCOME!
