I would just like a statement from Funen on whether they think that IRC impersonation is acceptable. Tonight during an operation intended to jump into SPACE, your current occupation, someone entered our operations channel as "Kaz" using a BNC roughly 30 seconds before we would have jumped...

Some WA members will know about my poor state of mental health in the last few days, so let me try to document what has happened since. Yesterday evening I got a telegram thinking that I was multyling, even though I am extremely confident that never used my nation on public computers: even though it...

Hi, 2 hours ago, I got a warning TG from the WA, telling me I was violating its rules. I have extra nations, but none have ever joined the WA: and nor do I even use public computers. Although I have decided to leave the WA out of courtesy after 8 years 60 days, can you please explain what lead the s...

We also have legal and regulated cannabis, but I don't know if all member countries would agree with our liberal stance.

The peacekeeping force would be available for deployment, only on demand. It is beyond the WA's control to determine how roleplays are done, so I think this is the furtherest we can get. Let's stop talking about the terms of peacekeeping forces. That's the subject of a resolution that assumes we've...

The Patriot Act didn't sunset - only Sections 206 (roving wiretap provision) and 215 (library records provision). Section 6001 (lone wolf provision) of the IRPTA also expired as it was tied to the expiration of the other two. In any case, the PATRIOT Act is now weaker than it was. Any replacement m...

It is not my intention to suggest legalising automatic deployment. Very well, Charlotte Ryberg. But if we do get rid of this rule, then what would the policy be for a peacekeeping deployment?

The WA should be allowed to have an army, but on condition that they are limited to peace-keeping roles. This should allay the "god mode" concerns. But, if Nation X and Nation Y were fighting a war. Neither of them want to have peacekeepers be deployed. Nation Z, a participant on the thre...

Wait why is that unfortunate? Patriot act is largely stupid worthless and unconstitutional.

Bad choice of the first word in my last reply. My mistake, sorry. :hug:

I bought the original Cupid & Psyche (Scritti Politti) CD from 1985, and the soundtrack from Perfect Way sounded differently, notably with a gap about 18 seconds in: when I did the research, it turned out that the version was the original, and the drums that I expected were added in later.

You should refresh the RMB just to be sure which nation you are currently in.

In some cases, clearing the cookies for NationStates.net and then logging in with the nation that you want may help, especially if one nation is configured to login automatically.
