Huzzah! Huzzah! The Black Moderators crashed through NationStates last night and deleted the following nations! It was apparently a pretty slow night. Usually the tally is in the 40s-50s. I guess we'll have to train Mall a bit more on how to point the firehose correctly to flush them into the gutte...

Only in the same sense that these are references to Watergate.

No. Most of the stuff that upsets you is incredibly minor. Grow a thicker skin, Ardoki.

I think NationStates desperately needs codified rules and transparency. So write up a draft and post a thread on it. I think you'll find that defining codified rules is much much harder than you think. There are 25 of us, and we don't think in lockstep. Do we allow "this word", and not &q...

No bad OPs or poorly designed threads that invite stupid comments, racism, and flaming by their very nature.

You've had a number of warnings (major and minor) over the past couple of years, but they no longer appear in your Warning Count.

Keep your nose clean and we'll never have to have this discussion again.

I believe you need to allow emigration and have a military; if you do, the issue will come up right away.

Why not just have the population decline while they are CTE, and once it reaches zero !-bam-! name released. Also a great idea.now, would it decline at the same rate, faster, or slower than population increases? Dead nations don't go through update. That's because we can run about 140,000 active na...

Any stock market simulation without any underlying numbers would be meaningless. Since every bit of it would have to be made up, you might as well simply call it a roleplay. In fact, go ahead and do that. Create a stock market in a G&ET thread and see what happens. Feel free to set any condition...

"View your posts" isn't a list of topics. It actually runs a search of your posts every time you click it. So no, you can't remove topics from the search. You can only hide them by using some sort of external tool like NS++.

What if founders (and why not executive delegates too) could use their influence (equivalent to normal influence) to put/allocate for making unsuppressions and reading of RMB messages more costly to others? That's a really nifty idea, actually. Unfortunately it's probably impractical, as I don't be...

it doesn't appear that more game mods are necessarily needed at the moment. That used to be a consideration, but it's not so much one anymore. Granting GM powers isn't a matter of assigning mods to the back room to handle GHRs - it's just giving them a bigger and more effective toolbox. It's a prom...

The reason spambots exist is to improve search results by posting links to their sites. They're not remotely interested in having NS players as customers. It's entirely a search order scam. Therefore, posting QUOTES of the very content we are trying to expunge defeats the purpose. Post LINKS, not QU...

Probably because whoever edited your sig earlier (most likely me) didn't read the content, but just fiddled with formatting. That's not the same as "deem[ing] it within site rules". It just means we missed it previously.

You should send the telegram id to The Game Moderators as a report so that the mods can take a look and see if it does break the rules. Or he could settle things without invoking the mods, which is perfectly acceptable. We don't need to arbitrate every dispute. If the involved parties can resolve t...

When have nations ever been able to be resurrected in the Rejected Realms? TRR has a sinker tag. Sinkers are regions where you can either be resurrected or relocated after ejection.

It has. Allowing some nations to not have a prefix would create the ability to impersonate another nation relatively seamlessly, so we don't allow it.
