I have two puppets, a WA delegate which is also my capital city which is also a slightly eccentric Grand Duchy, and a bumblingly incompetent and corrupt semi-autonomous aboriginal confederation. I'm not entirely sure how you could even sustain having more then, say, 5 puppets. If you can I think yo...

At one time, I had between 300-400 puppets. I'm down to about 150 now. This was for a purpose that's already been expressed on this thread: research into how NationStates turns issue choices into government stats. For certain kinds of people, this really is fun. It harms no one. I don't use my puppe...

[Server Problems] Game is erratic today! [We know!]

The game server seems to be having a huge amount of trouble for the last hour, constantly resetting connections and/or taking forever to respond to simple game requests (login, getting the issues list, etc.) Also, XML requests are frequently giving back a "maintenance downtime or capacityproble...

Ranking error?

Today's lowest ranking nation, the least politically free, Mattaj, rates 11 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale. The second lowest nation rates 0. This certainly looks like an error of some kind.

Relatedly, I would love to be able to add some script examples to our API doc -- e.g. some basic Perl, Python, and PHP to show scripting newbies how to get started. Any script authors willing to provide this? I'll volunteer to do some Python - though it may take awhile for me to get the free time.

I am guessing that the N's are in order by their appearance in the Analysis tab This is incorrect, and any new World Census scales won't change the IDs of existing ones. You can see which census IDs match which scales by browsing a random nation ( like so ) and looking at the URL. In this example, ...

I'm not aware of new issues being forced through in any way. Also, I've checked each nation that people said had this bug - and the records indicate you've only been getting 1 issue per update. Rank and Vile specifically - you're saying that the two you currently have (#175 and #280) are the two yo...

Getting extra issues?

I thought I should report this, even though I'm not entirely sure it's a real problem. Three times in the last two weeks, a nation of mine has gotten an extra issue on an update. Twice, I got an extra issue for the nation Revolving Door . The first time, I shrugged it off, thinking I'd forgotten to ...

Now let's talk about Daily XML Dumps. I've done some profiling, and these are a large part of why our daily updates are taking so long to complete. Now we have API shards, I'm wondering how far we can strip back the Dumps. Could regular users of these Daily Dumps please let me know which data they ...

New! Data from nation "Analysis" pages is now available from the API. See the documentation for examples. You can get any nation's score on any of the scales by using the shard "censusscore-N", where N is the numeric ID of the census. Also added a few world shards, like "ce...

If you are willing to decide in advance for a nation how you will answer each issue, I have released some software that will help. Basically, it answers your issues for one or more of your nations, based on some files which tell it how. This certainly could be used to keep a nation on a consistent r...

Besides, I've yet to see anybody explain to me how you can't already determine influence levels through the World Census rankings. How is one measurement more valuable than the other when they both measure the same exact thing ? The rankings are artificially continuous. The actual numbers aren't. Y...

Change in appearance of Century (Wide RMB) RMB

Sometime recently, the format of the Century (Wide RMB) theme RMB changed for the worse. I observed it about 10 Eastern time, but it may be that a browser restart, which I did then, picked up a change that had been made earlier. I'm running Firefox 7.0.1 on Windows 7, but I observed the new format w...

The sentence would be fine. :bow: It can be a very complicated sentence, so I understand the difficulty. (So complicated I think a verb or two sometimes gets lost when a "small group of individuals" is involved.)

Thanks for all this (and for all the bits yet to come)!
