WIJ Newsthread Edition 1
We've got a couple important announcements in this edition, along with a couple interviews, a short argumentative, and a couple other things.
[0.2] Mainframe notice
The Mainframe is currently offline. No logs will be saved. If you participate in a training and receive cP, the Officer will give it to you once the Mainframe is online again. If you think you lost any logs, contact the officer that gave it.
[0.3] Costume Contest
We had a quick little costume contest a couple weeks ago. Fifty-nine people entered the competition. WIJians voted on who they liked through a poll. Cashpop won the contest, receiving a commendation, orange sparkles, and 150 cP. Yasmeen098 and Caspian9 are the runner-ups, who got blue sparkles, a commendation, and 75 cP. Congratulations!

[0.4] War announcement
> War with Soticule Forces
WIJ recently engaged in a brief war with Soticule Forces. SilentSwords and Paul, the leader of SF, agreed to stop the war the day after it was declared because SF's activity didn't suitably match WIJ's. It was an excellent war while it lasted. Of course, no victor was named.
> War with VAK
As most of you know, VAK recently declared war on WIJ. Although HICOM never officially declined the war, it's safe to say that we won't be accepting it - Silent compared going to war with VAK to letting methane leak into your kitchen for twelve hours.
> War in general
It's no secret that WIJ doesn't go to war very often. Silent recently posted a thread regarding the reasoning behind that. Basically, he said the reason that we don't go to war very often is because it ends in drama too often. If WIJ went to war, the sole purpose of it would be for fun. Because large and popular clans have a larger userbase, who would defend their clan's honor, even if it meant lying, the chances of drama are extremely related to the size and popularity of the enemy.
Of course, that's not to say HICOM doesn't want to go to war. When HICOM finds a clan that they think would be a worthy opponent, war shall be declared.
