The BIG Collaborative List of Suggested NS Improvements


Organized by Unibot



The BIG Ideamonger Announcement Board
Keeping Ideamonger's like myself up to date with the most interesting threads for Ideamongering


If you have an idea (that hasn't been suggested before), post it in a separate tech thread and contact me about it. There is no need to post it in this thread, as it isn't a suggestion box. Thanks!




If you wanted to see the drama of NS improvements unfold for itself, I'd suggest taking a look at the ol' NS World Improvements thread which sparked a NS-wide flurry of creativity and loveable innovation.

Legend has it that a well caffeinated young cap by the name of Unibot once postponed breakfast, lunch and dinner to read through all of the posts on that legendary thread.

However for those that opt not to read through dozens of muddled comments and ideas (or can't because Jolt has gotten rid of the bloody thread), here's a neat collection of them...

The post on the subject seems to link to the elimination of secret passwords.

While I'm still posting, here is my response to the "Indicator of a new At-Vote Proposal on a WA Nation's page":

Basically, it is going to be a good idea but only if multiple proposals are at vote at the same time, but it is going to pose a mild nagging problem for voters who chose to abstain from a particular resolution.

I'd like it if "location" was below our flags like on Jolt. It's interesting to see where people are posting from.

One of the Mods (I think it was either Reppy or Erastide - back in that deleted "About this Forum" thread) stated that they preferred we not have the "Location" portion in our avatars because most people just put silly lines like "Location : Your Mom!" back in the Jolt Days. You can still set it up in our UCPs so people can view it from there, or you just put that info in a sig.

I do think an interesting idea would be to have the "Location:" display your current region of residence.

REALWORLD NATIONAL ISSUES
I noticed that some of the other nations are experiencing Issues that affect their nation that are made up corporations. "The kingdom of Krebotkin declares jigglypop Soda to be the national drink."

What if you offered Real Corporations the ability to advertise their products in the place of these made up consumer goods? Effectivly these companies would pay to advertise in what is essentially a simulation of the real world.
I for one would love to outlaw Petroleum powered vehicles and purchase a million Tesla Motors Electric Roadsters for my little Commonwealth and vote on outlawing Coca Cola in favour of Pepsi.

I don't think I saw this on this list, but I would appreciate if Unicode were supported for currency name, national animal, etc. It is already supported for regional messages. Unless there is a strong reason not to use it...

Thanks.

I think Perl doesn't like "&" because it gets confused with a Subroutine, or "@", and an Array, "%", Hash, "$" Variable - and so forth. Though I'd bet there is a way to get around that. I'm just not a Perl Expert to know it.

Unibot: you are perhaps thinking about NCRs (as "& # 2 6 5 ;", without spaces). I was thinking more of UTF-8. As I said, I can type in unicode characters in regional messages and they appear properly (see my comment in Esperantujo, for example). However I cannot do that for currency or animals. I wanted my currency to be "laŭro", but it's not accepted.

Whee, I just previewed my post, and my ŭ character appears correctly. Great! It seems it is accepted everywhere except for currencies, how lucky of me :-)
