I made a new nation after my last one was destroyed, and look at this.

Apparently "the state confiscates all corpses to use the organs and bones for "science" brought DOWN authoritarianism and extremism??
“What you people are failing to see is the enormous social resource,” mentions morbid mortician Sheng-ji Yang in a monotone. “Bones can be turned to human ivory, skin can be tanned into good leather, and trace elements reclaimed for state industry. Indeed, it should be seen as every citizen’s final duty to go into the recycling processing centre, and become one with the People’s economy!”

Authoritarianism
milliStalins V 2.0%

Ideological Radicality
Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index V 0.67%

This game is really confusing sometimes...

Hi I'm brand new...A few questions..

can I backtrack on an issue and choose the lesser extreme? I wanted all citizens to have ID and exist in a registry of sorts, but I didn't think it would mean they would stamp barcodes on the skin. The lesser suggestion was to have more security cameras all over. Any way to undo the barcode stamping and accept the security cameras?


Also is it possible to change how my nation makes money? Right now I am in the mining sector.. I rather be in something like medical or technological development if those exist. I can "kinda" predict the problems being in the mining sector will cause.

I just blocked all telegrams will that harm my nation in the future? I'd rather build up my nation before going on the world stage and even considering any invitations or w/e

That's about it for now..

There will be an issue that gives you the option to reverse that choice at some point.

Also is it possible to change how my nation makes money? Right now I am in the mining sector.. I rather be in something like medical or technological development if those exist. I can "kinda" predict the problems being in the mining sector will cause.

It is not possible to change your major industry, and which one is your major industry is largely cosmetic in nature (for the most part).

Actually, choosing some options on some issues can alter which industries are most important in your nation... and if you're in the WA then GA resolutions in the 'Environmental' category that target specific industries can also do this.

I more meant you can't change it manually without issues :p

Background Checks and Nation/Region BBcode on ProBoards

Postby Madame Victoria » Wed Apr 03, 2019 6:46 pm

So I'm working to start a new region, and I have a pretty big question concerning security.

Many major regions in the game in the past have used offsite forums for the purpose of checking user information to prevent blacklisted people from joining the region. With the end of Zetaboards however, fewer regions are using forums in favor of having regional discords, and some choose to have nothing and keep the region 100% gameside.

So my question is if I were to opt for a fully gameside region, what would my options be to ensure we don't let in blacklisted players. This isn't to be confused with DoS players, I understand that with those lot, it's just the matter of issuing a GHR.

Alternatively, if I were to use a forum, there's the issue that ProBoards doesn't currently have a [nation] [region] tag plugin. If I used the code that was used on ZetaBoards, would there be some way to implement that over on ProBoards?
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://z1.ifrm.com/0/2/0/p401849/bbtags31_xanik.js'></script><script>ubb_tag("Nation","nation","<a href='http://www.nationstates.net/nation=<% INNER %>'><% INNER %></a>",0,"Links to a nation on NationStates"); ubb_tag("Region","region","<a href='http://www.nationstates.net/region=<% INNER %>'><% INNER %></a>",0,"Links to a region on NationStates");</script>


Thank you very much to everyone who can be of help.

My JavaScript skills are really minimal, but at a first look I can see no reason why that should not work on ProBoards.

So im pretty new and I created i'd say, a region that people could get pretty active in. Now I don't want to spend money, but how do I recruit people? If it is through RMB posts, I can't post on other regions other than my own. A little help?

Right on, I'll look and see if I can figure this out then. On that note, I'll be sure to make that code publicly available if/when I am able to get it working. :)

There are three ways to send recruitment telegrams, stamps, scripts, and manual.
If you and/or region members are willing to put in the time, you can manually send recruitment telegrams to nations are they are founded. Just make sure telegram is marked recruitment. For scripts, you can set up an API to automatically send telegrams for you. There are guides on how to do this, you can look for them yourself or ask if someone is nice enough to go find them and link them, I don't have time to pull up the links right now

Be warned that, unless your region is very appealing, the success of recruiting attempts is likely to be very low: 1 or 2 nations per 100 TGs sent would probably be a good result...

So far after about an hour of playing this game, I am really enjoying it, but there's still a few thing that I'm unsure about. One of them is making an organisation/faction that everyone else seems to have, which is why I get spammed with faction invite messages. How do I make an organisation?

Using the Matriarchy pre-tag also works, but you do need one of them.

The only way is to answer issues to change the three main stats at the top of the nation page. classification is based on those, there is a chart somewhere on what corresponds to what, not sure where
