The best way to do so would be to not declare you're planning on couping. The second step would be spell checking the region names. The third step would be to gain influence and somehow have enough endorsements in the region.

If one could get enough for one update I'd be impressed. Just think how many people would have to jump right at update to avoid banjection.

"pliers"?


Pilers are raider or defender nations that endorse their delegate to make it more difficult for opposing forces to move in and capture the region from them.

I've split out a few posts that were either irrelevant posturing or irrelevant spam. You're not going to help newcomers by turning this into a chat thread. You're also not going to help newcomers by rehashing the same old arguments with each other that we see in 90% of the other threads in this forum.

Direct posts in this thread at people who are asking for help. If there aren't any asking for help just yet, then you don't need to post.

I don't want this thread to be something that needs heavy mod supervision, but it was starting off bad, and I don't want it to continue that way.

Filthy noob question, and it's not directly related to regional politics/roleplay (which seem to be the primary topic of this thread), but I suppose the World Census rankings are still strictly a part of the gameplay sphere so I supposed this to be the proper place. Those little trophy icons we earn for being top 10,5,1 percent, etc. Do we lose them if we lose that rank, and/or the region for which we've earned them? Or does simply having earned the rank at one point permanently pin the trophy to a nation's acct?

To answer your question, the trophies aren't permanent. If you've changed ranks, it won't show on your page until that same census rolls around again.

Can confirm that this is correct. It won't be immediate, rather it will take place when that becomes the next daily stat thing where you get the region rankings for that skill.

In addition, if you move regions, you lose all the trophies related to region specific ranks.

Is making a "revolution" in your nation viable? I know I can't just flip half my policies totally around and I'd need to wait for an appriopriate decision and slowly turn the nation the other way, but I'm wondering how long would such a "revolution" take.

For example, I'm "RPing" the situation as the High Priest having went completely off the deep end and turning the nation into a Psychotic Dictatorship. However I imagine with how restrictive the government has become, there would be a sizeable opposition. Probably even an underground movement. So, if I said those guys won, how long would it take me to undo months of intentionally bad decisions and mismanagement? Let's say I want to go libertarian this time.

At two issues a day, I'd say... more or less a week, depending on what issues you get and what options you choose in them.

So, I take it this is the thread for "What do I do when X" or, "Why cant I do Y" sort of things, right?

If that is the case, why do I need two Endorsements to propose a Repeal?
It is something I noticed when I was about to submit a proposal to repeal GA Resolution 302: Individual Working Freedoms.
Was there a problem with trolls? Or noobs who did not read what they were trying to repeal?

There's a really interesting essay that explains the mechanics of this in detail: New South Hell on Computational Spectroscopy Essentially, if your nation was +4 democratic and you want to make it an extreme dictatorship, you'd need 8 points the other way, but certain issue will give you more than 1 point another way. So it's hard to say a timescale, you just need to answer as many issues as possible.

I will quote from The Bruce's History of NationStates, this is from his section on 2003:

The Nation States system faced a huge overhaul in 2003. In April, the United Nations started to become a more manageable beast, after the Nation States Administration began weeding the Proposal listings for stupidity and making it so you had to have two endorsements to submit a Proposal. There was still a ways to go on lowering the requirements for Delegate backing to make a Proposal into a Resolution, but things were at least starting to turn around. It was suddenly a lot easier to be a Nation States Delegate.


Hope that helps!

You'd probably get a better answer in the GA Proposals Q & A, but I'll try to answer.

The endorsement requirement is there so someone can't just join the WA and immediately spam it. In a lot of regions, it takes quite a bit of work to get 2 endorsements. (Others, not so much, and others it's just damn easy)

Pretty new here, so the obvious questions:

How often do issues happen? Is there a way I can get it to happen more often?
How does my population grow?
How does my government expenditure change? I'd prefer education to Law and Order.

Pretty much that.

Thanks.

Issues come twice a day. Each at the major and minor update. You can change this via the Settings page.
Your population grows daily, even if you don't answer any issues. They grow by acouple million a day.
And if you want to change your nation's stats, answer issues correspondinglyn

First 5 days - 1 million at major update

5 days to 10 days - 2 million at major update

10 days to 15 days - 3 million at major update

15 days upwards - 5 to 8 million at major update

Source: http://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?p=2995717#p2995717




On the note of issues you start off having 2 issues a day. This amount can be changed to either:
    - 2 everyday
    - 2 on weekdays
    - 1 on weekdays
    - 1 everyday
    - no issues at all




With changing your nations stats - if you want the expend assure to rise ; when issues come up for that departments budget (or any more powers and the like) than support it. That will bring it up.
