Harkening back to what had started to become a bygone era where Northrop-Grumman actually mass produced weapons for international buyers, the defense manufacturing portion of the state, now devolved down into a state-owned corporation instead of being indistinguishable from the nation itself, jumped...

The gears of the Grummian state were always slow to turn, reacting to situations in never a terribly speedy manner, but such was the way the provisional government worked. With its leader, Chairwoman O’Neill, still absent from the day to day dealings, the public appearances, the nation tended to ref...

Yeah, no. That'll remove the one last barrier non-R/D folks have to being completely annihilated regionwise. At that point, I'd just let my own region timeout and decamp to TRR where I'll just let everything rot away and never interact with anyone gameside again. There's no real point in having a re...

Even more exasperated, the Grummian Ambassador slouched down into the chair behind the desk, tilting it back and watching the lunacy continue. He then dug down into his pants’ pocket and brought out a silver flask. Taking a tremendous swig of its contents, he grunted as the scotch burned his throat,...

Personally, this mall should resign stuff is stupid, it's like me asking every Mentor here who roleplays a 'evil' nation to resign. Mall is just playing the game, nothing less, nothing more. His actions are entirely legal and asking him to resign over them is a stupid and childish act, frankly. Arg...

Eh, the issue there is that, if they say that, then that gets everyone's hopes up that there might actually be a resolution to all this. Even if there's a "might" in there, that'd still get people optimistic and think that something is going to be done. I'd hate to be Mr. Cynic here, but ...

Also, a couple of other mods responded, but they also couldn't do anything. Only the higher ups and MANY, although ...

I know there's been a bit of a delay around these parts (and a delay in me actually telling people about it), but the default static (non-gif) smilies were replaced with the ones that United Gordonopia provided.

Because he hasn't been acting as a moderator. So when he posted his proposal, his name did not appear in red text marking him as a mod?

Because RP is an option and if you simply ignore it your entire region isn't destroyed. R/D is also an option (!), this has been explained time and time again, by numerous players, across several threads over the past years. Each time, you have declined to opt out, citing various excuses. It RPers ...

No one's asking of forcing anyone to do that, its a choice. R/Ders do it every day. In the same way, how is RP any less unobtrusive if players must sometimes write posts that take several hours to write? RPing can be done at one's leisure, whenever one has time, so there's no real rush to do anythi...

There's been suggestions to 'gut game mechanics' from a few corners. The opt-out tag is a decent idea that needs looking out. How, however, do you stop defenders going around putting the tag on every region? Aye, that's the problem. In another thread, I suggested moderator oversight, similar to how...
