The only thing I remember doing is turning the World Assembly into a reality show. I don't remember hearing about a Real Life video game very much on NS; it seems like something I would have seen on Futurama. But if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say Fris, HotRod or goob.

Hello there!

So, I have heard somewhere (I forgot where exactly) that there was once upon a time whereby an entire school got banned from NationStates because of the actions of a select few from that particular school.

I'm kinda curious on how that happened, though of course, I understand that some of the more Modly details might be kept confidential.



Sorry if this question has already been asked and answered; I couldn't find it here, at least not in this thread.

The entire country of New Zealand was temporarily banned from NS for a time because of one user, so a whole school getting banned would not be unprecedented or surprising :p

Aha, then I have most likely remembered wrongly. :P Wow the entire country banned... poor NZ.

Thanks!

I remember there was this one cool nation in the NP, I believe it was called Lala Land and it was ruled by someone called Lady Lala. I remember something about her being sad sometimes (I could be remembering this wrong). Do you guys know at all if she is doing ok?

Standing up to the entitled, power hungry gameplay community elitist internet bullies that like to pick on smaller regions and newer nations.

I'm not saying everyone in a grand position of power is, but there a handful/select few that like to flaunt around like an over-confident rooster and you'll know them within a few sentences of text chat with them.

Surviving two, or was it three, attempts of offsite regional property destruction - by this I mean an individual that deleted a server (but we had a backup duplicate on standby)

Surviving a false SC liberation attempt that backfired epically

Okay so there's plenty more but no need to stir up any put to rest drama

I don't consider the websites that we've made for Enadia an "accomplishment" since those are provided as an extra service that's just available to use whenever

Challenging new ideas and pressing for competitiveness to drive forth progress towards the furtherment of better regions across nationstates. Not everyone likes changes or can handles changes - if they feel they struggle as a region - then it would be best for them to merge with other like minded regions and work towards making a better one together.

Most folks don't realize that as a bunch of smaller regions, they are much weaker. So of course the bigger regions (the ones that flaunt and strut their stuff around) tend to create drama and false allegations and such to keep the smaller regions divided and fighting. This way they remain in control and nobody else is the wiser to their plans. If folks would get down off their high horse and set aside differences then they'd have some great potential to create some awesome regions.

No, there isn't a conspiracy by GPers to take down your region, or any other region. And I say this coming from a smaller region.

Also I wouldn't say your region has done any better because of those "new ideas"

P.S. I'm not sure you understand that the quote in your signature is sarcasm.

It's pretty clear by your question and you linking your question on the region's RMB that you were just trying to promote. Do not use the History thread to indirectly advertise your own region.

I had an encounter with HYDRA when they raided my region, but that was back in 2015, which was relatively young and recent.

'The Bruce' cites a group called 'Evil' as the first actual invaders. 'The Farkers' are typically more cited as the first invader group, though the more accurate would possibly be one of several to come up with the idea relatively about the same time & were most successful of them at doing it and popularizing it.

Idk on first defender group.
