Yeah, as a gay person, this whole issue made me cringe and roll my eyes. I think such studies are clumsy dog whistles that harken back to the gay men can't/shouldn't raise children because the children will end up gay and oooh god knows what'll happen then. I don't think an issue like this can work ...

Sorry, I don't come into this forum as often as I used to. So Mild, Significant, and Strong are coded as, putting it very simply and this is just a vague thing so as to not give away the stats, Civil Rights + X, Civil Rights + Y, and Civil Rights + Z respectively. They used to be much stronger, wher...

Taking advice from Sanct on the WA Discord, I'm not going to be budging the strength back down to Mild. OOC: Could one of you post the reasoning here for everyone to see, so that it doesn't look like just being stubborn for the sake of stubbornity? It really wasn't anything formal. It was basically...

Damn :( Ooc: neither IA nor Sanctaria are GenSec members. You're...

The Discord Mod Reports thing is nice but you guys need to come here to Moderation unless the offensive is sensitive for some reason. Making the report there will not get you quick action unless you ping people. Thanks for dealing with it, but I'd advise you to work on the response time because a w...

I raised this privately off-site with the mods, but have been advised to post here instead. I absolutely support this. We can ship off our sodomites, get back their non-gay children. It's a win-win. They're not here spreading their rot and propagandising, and they have their little sex-state to do w...

There were people picking random options, or always picking the first/last option on each issue, even before cards existed. It's funny to see what horribly-messed-up nations you'll end up with. This is true. I think I calculated for July that there were 1.7 million issues answered. I'd wager the ma...

But I don't understand why it wouldn't make sense? A particular group of society is being excluded, in this case the LGBT community, so to garner attention to their cause and their status of being oppressed in @@NAME@@, they're photoshopping pictures of the nation's head of state kissing members of...

Hey gang, Not sure if this should go in 'Got Issues' or this board, as it's gameplay-relevant too. I'm relatively new to the site, so I'm sure this has been discussed at some point, but I couldn't find anything on it. I feel like there are some older (pre-2017 update) issues that could be improved ...

Fauxia wrote:1151 spells Tranquility of Yellow with two l’s, which I believe is a non-US spelling. I know that typically issues use the spelling of the author, but since it’s an organization, should it be consistent?

Americans don't spell Yellow with two l's?

There is no problem currently, Aussie. There's no infringement on player autonomy.

I also believe that restricting this to nations that have low LGBT rights means it would be highly unlikely their @@LEADER@@ would be gay.

Great to see you back, this draft is promising. Some thoughts: The description can be greatly shortened - there's too much story going on there. Image of Leader in a same-sex embrace with the GHP has caused outrage among conservatives in a nation that hitherto barely tolerated LGBT. Stretch that int...
