Texas Regional Message Board
Greetings from XKI! We're proud to present a special announcement regarding Chief Executive Markanite's resignation from his position, and his selection of Hakketomat as his successor. To view the full announcement, please follow the link below.
On Monday, April 3rd 2021, Chief Executive Markanite of 10000 Islands announced his decision to resign from his position, and pass the torch to Hakketomat. Hakketomat is a well-known figure in the region, having served as Executive Officer in TITO, Senior Senator, and Registrar-General, among other positions. Although we are sad to see Markanite go, he has made an excellent choice for his successor and XKI is excited to welcome Hakketomat into the position of Chief Executive.
The following is the statement of resignation and conferral from Markanite:
2. The Chief Executive authority of 10000 Islands shall be vested in the Founder Nation, the United States of Grub. The Chief Executive shall hold Office for life, and shall be responsible for the conferral of the Chief Executive's authority to a successor of the Chief Executive's sole choosing.
So, as per Article 2 of the XKI Constitution, I am naming Hakketomat to be the next Chief Executive of the 10000 Islands. The transition will begin today with this announcement and I will work with to bring them up to speed on all the duties of the Chief Executive over the next few weeks. I will update everyone upon completion of the transition.
The first thing we will work on is administering the elections which begin tomorrow as normal.
I'd like to thank you all for your support, help and guidance whilst I navigated the challenges of the role. I hope that I have done you all proud. Being Chief Executive is not easy, and I know I've made some mistakes however I also hope I've done some good and helped the region. 10000 Islands has an extensive and amazing history, we have endured the test of time and will continue to thrive under the new Chief Executive.
I look forward to watching how the region evolves over the next few months and years. It has been an honour and a privilege. Thank you all.
Long live the 10000 Islands! Long live TITO! Long live Hakketomat!
As the transition process begins we wish Hakketomat the best of luck and express the deepest gratitude to Markanite for his dedication and service to the region.
is this frisbeetarias region?

The region was more or less in agreement this month on Jabberwocky's polls. Islanders decided that zoos were fine as long as they treated their animals well, and that uniforms are evil as they represent conformity.
10000 Islands' finest creative minds were at work this month, bringing along discussions on many wacky topics with them.
~ The disappearing property of lasagna
~ A stranger's last day
~ Organ donations on the rise
~ Fleebdorse the defleeblegate
This month, your update staff has ventured down to newly appointed Chief Executive Hakketomat's lair to ask him a few questions.
Porflox: Let's start off with how you discovered XKI. Was there a particular reason you decided to come here?
Hakke: I discovered XKI when I received a recruitment telegram. Can't say from whom, since it's disputed. Aersoldorf is very certain that he sent me one while I'm certain I got it from Cerb. I liked the telegram from XKI the best, although that's also a foggy reason since I don't really know what exactly made me choose XKI. I think I took a look at the region and its size. The mentioning of TITO also interested me. But then, I wasn't too interested in joining TITO when I first arrived
Porflox: What prompted you to start getting more active in regional affairs then?
Hakke: A change came about when non-TITO citizens of XKI were asked to take part in the Lazarus mission of 2015. I joined in and I've mainly kept to TITO until Dominion of Compassion asked me to become his deputy senator. This was a few months prior to my first successful senator running in January 2017. Markanite interested me in joining The Islands Party and helped me run for a seat on the Co9.
Porflox: How many years have you been in XKI, and is there someone in particular who helped you through your time?
Hakke: I've been in XKI for as long as I've been on NS, a bit more than 6 years. At first when I joined the forum, Ardreas was assigned as a buddy to me so he introduced me about here and there. The forum seemed overwhelming, but once I inserted myself into the culture of Taco Island I built a friendship with Aersoldorf. Aersoldorf is perhaps one of my closest friends in XKI along with Markanite and Woonsocket. Mark got me fully introduced to the political system. I worked closely with Woon when he was CE. While Aersoldorf has been close to me, I can't forget Ater Nox either. He has also helped me in getting settled in Taco Island.
That is just the civilian side of my time in XKI. In TITO, it has always been Kanta Hame who has been central. He is the first one I met when I attended update for the first time. He also was appointed Tactical Officer shortly afterwards and so, he would lead me into missions. During my time in TITO, I started eyeing up the Executive Officer position which was held by Louisistan as well as Barry. When I was appointed Executive Officer, I of course sought Louisistan's input whenever I needed some advice. Louis was my inspiration for that role. Since then, TITO Command has been the pillar of my existence in XKI and TITO. So yeah, I can't say that I have anyone in particular.
Porflox: Now that you've been appointed CE, what are some things you want to get done?
Hakke: My goals for XKI is to have silver cities and statues built in my honour! All school students will do the pledge of allegiance to both XKI and me every morning! XKI will also become a vampire haven!
Porflox:Well on that note, thanks for the interview! I'm sure XKI will flourish under your silver and vampiric oversight.
Hakke: You are very welcome!
