Menta Lee-IL RETIRES! Kinda...

Hello! So, why am I posting about Menta Lee-IL ? Well. It's me. I've had the pleasure of running and role playing Menta Lee-IL for the past 14 years, and I've decided to more-or-less retire from NS, not that anyone would really care. But anyway! I'm amazed I kept the nation going for as long as I ha...

Jesus Christ of Nazareth. There is something that might need pointing out here: how much of the controversy of certain people is actually due to the words and actions of the person, and how much of it is due to those words and actions being twisted and misinterpreted over the course of centuries?

the premise is decent enough, though I feel the description should be reworded a bit. who began lamenting over an art sale he attempted to procure that did not go as planned.

At least with the clown one, it is an interesting dilemma because clowns are designed to entertain children, yet it seems like children are being scared of them rather than laughing. I remember Halloween a while ago where everyone was afraid of being murdered by a clown, and there was also 'It.' It...

Thank you for all of the above. I wrote this somewhat in the vein of Issue 143, "An Archaeological Altercation," but with a different spin, so, I do think personally it would merit being an issue, but, that's just me; issue editors may think otherwise, and I'm more than happy to tinker wit...

It'd be good to see you fix all the little details: straight quotes, non-capitalised effect lines, normal macro format, and so on.


Thank you! *tips hat*

And done-and-done, should be error free (one hopes), formatting wise.

Statements like these After 10 years in circulation... we’ve had the same people on them since 1935! are probably dancing on dangerously thin ice when it comes to player autonomy.

Regardless of assumptions of what they looked like before, there should probably at least be an option to make banknotes depict something other than people, to avoid controversy. For example, euro, Danish, Egyptian, and lower-value Russian banknotes mostly depict architecture on both sides (though ...

Making assumptions about what banknotes look is a player autonomy sin There are all sorts of published issues that impede on player autonomy. e.g I have no Arctic areas in my nation, yet I get issues pertaining to said Arctic areas existing.

I think this is quite open to interpretation - the user is describing what they would do in a hypothetical situation. I'm not sure that counts as threatening/illegal/obscene. Plus, the tone ('not one shall be spared') seems to suggest humour. Unless you are making a complaint, the person being comp...
