Yes, this is a legal and common technique. Key to its success is that you MUST use the same email address on all nations. You can apply with multiple nations at once, but the WA will not recognize your new acceptance for admission until you've resigned with your prior nation. Edit: Opening the email...

I don't know why we still have the drop list. It's entirely irrelevant. Everything goes into one big bin.

Would it be possible to put in place a tier-system that has different population limits depending on the time elapsed since deletion (e.g. 500 million limit for countries deleted 2-5 years ago, 1000 million limit for countries deleted >5 years ago)? That seems nice and maybe possible, but I doubt t...

Just a formatting point: If you two are going to continue to quote each other's massive responses, could you at least have the decency to spoiler the quote before you post? I'm going blind here.

In some countries, it's the worst possible slur. In others, it's at about the same level as "damn" or "bastard". Obviously we'll consider it on a case by case basis, but if it's not used to excess or as a pejorative towards other players, it's usually all right.

No. It has nothing to do with money, and everything to do with file structure. Only an admin can do it, it breaks things, and it's a huge pain in the ass. We've done so exactly twice, and both times it's been acknowledged by the admins as a mistake, and we're not doing it again. If you want a new na...

It's more trouble than I'm willing to go to at this hour. Remember, tags must be nested properly. If you start with [alpha][be...
