^ Got a bit shafted by this one since the worst of the APC stuff was largely handled by Ivan and he was behind or supported some major region changes. I tried to avoid commenting on mine overall. Now that you mention it, I am a little surprised that Ivan didn't make the list. A little late, but I a...

I think what's interesting is if you follow this graph...it isn't really indicative of the general health of the game at any given time. The greater problem is continually finding ways to create interest through gameplay disputes when there haven't been any major product innovations in years (i'm no...

Sadly I have a lot of work to do today so don't have the time to campaign any further on this. (I'm not actually sad, it was getting old anyway) I gave Osiris an explanation but basically the screengrab isn't legitimate, I didn't verify it, and regardless of culpability, I have to take ownership of...

In his attempt to defend this region from condemnation, he highlights this fundamental fact of the status quo - that in the absence of conscious design on behalf of the game moderators, those who had established regions and R/D practices have been able to shape and direct the culture of NationState...

It would be far, far, easier to write a commendation for a region that has spent the better part of a decade trying to tear down the work of other players? No. All of your points are technicalities and obfuscations, and they do not lessen the LKE's clear legacy of aggression. Your defence of them i...

Doubtless, the months put into writing and revising this was a huge investment in time and I would be remiss if I didn't say this was both well-written and argued. That being said, it remains unfortunate that this resolution stands with a high probability of passing. The Land of Kings and Emperors h...

A lot of issues are getting conflated here, and I think it's worth focusing on the things that should get someone blacklisted from Nationstates: bigotry directed at other players and serious false OOC accusations. People keep bringing up being a leaker and lumping that into that, but tbh I don't rea...

It's one thing to allow individual users to prohibit another user from engaging them, that's probably okay provided you're also requiring the user in question not to engage the person they've prohibited from engaging them. So, for example, if Example Joe prohibits Example Becca from engaging him, E...

There have been some excellent posts made already in this thread. I want to post just a little bit about my personal experience. OOC violations are being taken seriously. This is a very good thing, because for many years in Nationstates (at least in circles I played in) players didn't have much reco...

I understand that the Rejected Times has an opinion element, and I'm glad to see any media in the game up and running.

Reading this definitely reminded me of some things, but I also think I underestimated how insular the dynamic, toxic politics of Europeia had driven m...

Out of curiosity, what exactly was "the Commonwealth"? As I was actually there (in fact, it was where I started out), and HEM got huge chunks of his post wrong, I'm going to take a better shot at this. Will post when it's done. I started my post by saying I shouldn't be the person writing...

Let me re-state. Europeia should teach their noobs some PR skills before giving them the chief of state.

The "guts" to do what? What guts does it take to stay in a war that is universally popular, but where there are few if any offensive actions still to take? You really thought that kicking the NPO out of St Abbadon would be enough? Actions such as this are why the NPO's victory was obvious...
