That error normally happens when an unsupported character is in your post, including any emoji or math fonts.

Thanks! That fixed the issue (I found it in the discord nickname of a quoted person-- it was a beer mug).

An NPO senator describing how meritocracy can be a veneer for blatant oligarchy with no real hope for advancement (if it didn't have basis in fact, they wouldn't have said it!). The NPO Senator was a Governor at the time. To make up for that, here are some NSGP server quotes: https://discordapp.com...

It would presumably be a setting, so it would be up to the person running the poll. In other words we would be screwed. If such a setting is to exist it should be in the players own control panel and regulate if you see poll results or not. Not on the poll it self. Why would you be screwed? The pol...

I feel like this would lessen R/D targets and erode at the subculture. I would prefer if the founder had to press a button to give the region to a successor. That way they can prepare if they want to leave the game, but if they just CTE / get deleted executive goes to the delegate. Plus regions like...

The Pacific was the first region in NS ever , not just the first GCR. All regions came after TP. Is that actually true?

I second what other's have said. This isn't a commendation for meritocracy, so don't act like it is. In NationStates politics, meritocracy is a euphemism for autocracy, likely because autocracy doesn't have a great connotation. Words are (surprise!) based on usage. If "silly" used to mean ...

I'll admit I wasn't really looking into the poll enough to think that it was a joke. Sure, you can find non-joke anecdotes where people tie, but they're just anecdotes. They certainly don't represent the vast majority of polls. And even if they did, there would still be a group of them where the lem...

Bormiar, you're a GPer zeroing in on our GP/social content and criticizing it for being biased towards Wym's views/interests. Well, yes, because Wym basically drives NST's production of GP/social content. (To be clear, I'm referring to media that focuses on "GP personalities", as opposed ...

I do believe, however, that you're influencing them, in the same way that they influence you. Simply being on the board and in the governor chat means you have the opportunity to share your opinions. It would be interesting if you were a machiavellian, but I don't see it. I was on LoA due to RL for...

The survey is useless. Even if a decent amount of non-NST followers happened to respond to this survey, and even if they had any familiarity with the org, they'd be answering the wrong questions. The bias of NSToday lies not in over-representation or under-representation. As some have claimed, repre...

Hidden results on polls?

I've become increasingly aware of my "lemming-ness" on NS polls. I read through the options, don't have a strong opinion on any of them, and -- almost entirely by impulse -- vote for whatever the majority is picking. This isn't a lone observation by me. In the WA, there's universal accepta...

I don’t think you realize that the whole point behind the article was that the average TNPer doesn’t get involved in this NSGP social circle, so they aren’t as represented. That doesn’t encompass the general gameplay environment, and Bran likely knows that. I may have been wrong to suggest that he ...

Obviously it’s not favoritism for TWP per se, rather favoritism for people within this gameplay social circle, of which more TWPers tend to be influential members of than other regions.
