You used the toaster for Osiris didn't you? I can't remember. Yes and no. The Toaster I developed in 2006-2008 was a mess of PHP/MySQL that I started coding after reading a library book on PHP and MySQL each, and I called it Toaster 1. By the day of Osiris, circa 2011-2012, I was developing Toaster...

If other regions had such a tool before, they mostly kept it to themselves, because word of this tool became gold. Thanks to my tight relationship with Verteger, Europeia was allowed to use it in exchange for helping to train The Kingdom of England in foreign affairs and military stuff. I developed...

Replies: 5

My interpretation has always been that if your script is responding directly and immediately to a user input (which of course means that it must have finished with its previous request before the user gives that input) it does not count toward the 10/minute rate limit. Technically I suppose simultan...

None of these are bugs.

...What? But we have an API for answering issues . Is it now illegal to use that API? I strongly oppose any rule that would ban a core gameplay functionality just because it runs afoul of a side minigame that shouldn't be taken too seriously. API NationStates offers an API , which provides a faster...

Additionally, if what I described above is indeed what is happening, is this by design (e.g., to avoid excessive card farming)? If yes, it would be great if the administration could confirm this is the case. In the past, there has not been a case where there was any difference between doing an iden...

Based on discussions behind the scenes, this is not a bug. I believe this is the site functioning as designed.

And answering issues with a script via HTML scraping is now banned. (Also based on discussions behind the scenes).

The backend is back up, though service is a bit degraded as it has been for the last few years.

The good news is, the experimental ZAPI was a step toward bringing more NS++ features into NS itself.
