It's the way you have been going about it. You have shown no genuine interest in getting involved in the region. You have been bak for a number of days and declared you were going to overthrow the government. Of course, thy was utterly ridiculous, and people laughed in your face.

If you want to be Delegate, get involved in the region. Earn the trust and respect of other nations. Get some real government experience. I was elected Vice Delegate within months and Delegate in about 6 or 7 months. It's possible, but the way you're going about it now is destined to fail.

He hit the nail on the head! :clap:

I would say great job in enthusiasm - but you need to focus it on the right area. Rather than aiming straight for delegacy; how about aiming for knowledge?

Reducing crime

How do I get to the "crime is totally unknown due to an all pervasive police force" level?

How does one change the title of a forum? And how does one ban someone from a forum or "ignore" them?

Many thanks.

Simply select the "edit" button on the OP and edit the subject line.
As for the second post, you cannot ban someone in the sense that everyone will not see him/her post, however, there's an ignore feature one can select on the player panel which can be found by selecting a nation's name (NOT flag) however, only you won't see their posts.

Pro market, anti corporate welfare

Postby Cameridaxico » Thu Oct 16, 2014 10:52 pm

My question is very simple really. You see, I've been going for a laissez-fire style country, and so far things have been going Good...but here's The thing; right libertarianism advocates for The complete abolishment of state interference in The market...so why is my "corporate welfare" score so High? That's not a capitalist country; it's a corporatist one. Is There any possible WAY I Could reduce "corporate welfare" while not harming economic freedom? I HATE government-business subsidization...that's not what I believe in.

I'd also like to know if dismissed issues can return. Earlier, I dismissed The anti military vs pro military one (#14) , but now I REALLY want to make a decision on that one....it was significant. Please tell me that all hope isn't lost

Thanks for any responses!

I'd recommend hopping over to the got issues forum. They might not answer you straight up, but there should be people there with some more expertise.

When creating a nation does supporting corporations increase or decrease economic freedom and the power of your economy?

Welcome! What sort of thing would you like to know? :)

The "meat" of the game is in the "issues" section. You'll get one or more a day, and the way you respond affects the direction in which your nation will progress. Many people like to take everything a step further and find a region to roleplay in. Some regions have forums where you can do this.

Would tottally support this. Issues with me get done like 5 mins prior to update time. I spend my time chatting with the community on NS. Watching Nephmir and RU members bicker. Follow the opposition in TNP. Deliberately raid roleplay regions. Ah. NS is good fun.

Until you rise above that and find the endless possibilities of Roleplay, and then later find Gameplay.

Anything that increases the size of your industries or gives them more freedom will increase it. Soo does subsiding business.

So, let's say I have this region I'm building, and it's a fairly large and active GP region, but I want to build a good on-site RP community, and I'm not sure how to go about doing that and succeeding. Something kind of like Sovereign Charter, where all RP is done on-site, and where new members can just jump right in. Any tips from good region builders and/or RPers out there more experienced than I?
