    The time span was reduced to six months to accommodate Portugal's desires. The Republic of Turkey feels this is an appropriate compromise. Do any other nations wish to make suggestions?

    (OOC): Malta, doesn't it usually say who repped you? when u log in scroll down the page. I know it says who gave u positive rep... (/OOC)

    The Portuguese Republic thanks Turkey for the changes made, and will now sign it.

    [OOC: damn, that sucks - although I can see the technical difficulties with stopping people from repping in subforums. There should be some sort of gentleman's agreement though that you don't rep people when you don't understand what they're doing.]

    [ooc]Mine annoyed me because it said something like '**** lib dems, BNP ftw!' Just annoyed me because it was negging for my personal views at the time. Having now found out who it was, I didn't neg them because it was a troll and thats probably what they wanted.[/ooc]

    Do you want to do it taigan? Pop the final treaty version in a new thread titled "Treaty - Arms Race in Space - Voting" or something? Since this is just the draft thread


    Actually, how does the MUN want to deal with voting on Treaties? Just thinking out loud, what happens if it passes but some nations vote no? They don't sign?

    We could have 1 thread for the vote, and then another thread for countries to officially sign and declare their intention to support it. If a country doesn't support the Treaty, they don't sign it - same as the NNPT.
    The official Treaty thread could have some official sounding text in the form of a sort of contract, which reps sign on behalf of their countries.

    As a treaty I'd get to pass it to the HoC as they have no rep it would have no effect, but would be a good trial to see how it would work.

    I was thinking of something quite like this (I think I wrote it in the charter :confused:, if not I'll Reform it) but I hesitate to since it'd allow us to fall into the same trap of being unable to enforce anything against non-signatories...but there's little we can do. Even less on TSR, we could try with sanctions but it is, at the end of the day, words. Any ideas P?

    I'll allow taigan to put this to the vote then do the official Ratification one once /if it passes. It's effectively the same thing but...might help keep people active in the MUN for longer, I hope.

    For this one enforcement isn't really a problem - it looks like the countries who aren't going to sign are the only ones with the means to actually weaponize space anyway so it's very unlikely that we'd ever have a problem with violations.
    If we ever have countries breaking future treaties, I guess condemnation and a resolution would be the only things we could do.
