I thought the joke was that all issue chains are about scandals rocking the government.
She/her. Not an RPer.
Equality of gender/race/ethnicity/etc., disability accommodation, the government staying out of the bedrooms of consenting adult humans, healthcare, freedom of and from religion, recognition of science, reproductive freedom, and also tea-productive freedom
Class disparity, nationalism, forcing your religion (any religion) on others

Chose option 3 of 790 with an alt. Hopefully I'll find out where that leads in a couple of hours. :)

Eww, did you have to post that as a screenshot? It's really inconvenient because it's fixed to your screen resolution rather than wrapping properly, and because it can't be copy+pasted.

Still, noted! Everything adds up so far (for reference, it was option 3 on this one that I made a mistake on, but your seeing only four options pretty much confirms that). Now we just need #791, #794, and #796... and, conveniently, both of the latter can be obtained from the former.

Seconded. While I'm very grateful for the info, copy-pasting seems much easier, both for you and for anyone reading.

About 789.2

Postby Arceus Domains » Fri Aug 25, 2017 4:48 pm

Although my position has always been aimed at reducing corruption to a minimum, specially in this type of scandals, I find this chain as an extremely interesting one. For this reason, I've just picked option 2 in #789.

Hopefully, it will soon be possible to confirm if the Issue this option leads to is #791. Any necessary updates will be published in this thread, to complement the good work that Phydios and the other collaborators have been developing.

Edit: OOC fix (apologies :lol2:)

When you get #791 and post it, please wait a moment - I'll be able to tell you which of the three options leads to #795 (and therefore shouldn't be chosen because it'll give no new information).

That's ok. Although I must wait about 4 hours until the next one appears. When that happens (and hopefully it's #791) I'll post the full text in the spoiler megathread (if no one has gotten ahead of me) and I'll let you know in this thread how to continue discovering the missing ones.

Thank you very much. Make sure you read Trott's comment. Also, this forum is OOC, which your post wasn't I think :)

I was so excited about the idea of completing the chain, that I forgot such details. I apologize for this, as a beginner user in this forum :lol:

Going to #795 would still be useful, I think. I've only seen the result for one of its options.

Confirmed - 789.2 leads to 791

Postby Arceus Domains » Fri Aug 25, 2017 9:43 pm

I am pleased to confirm that selecting option 2 on #789 will result in #791, which is called "The Smoking Gun?".

Do you guys need the spoiler right here? On the other hand, I would like to receive the information on which option would give us more information, before continuing. Thanks in advance for the info.

Edit: Fixing issue name.

No need, I can see it in the other thread.

Okay, I'm pretty sure that option 1 leads to #795. Either option 2 or option 3 should lead to new info. In theory they're equally valuable, but I'm very slightly more interested in seeing the results of option 2. Or is that option 3? Well, you get the point.

Well... with regard to option 2, I would say that it is the most totalitarian (which could greatly affect my nation). Even so, if necessary, I will choose it. Let us wait for a second opinion on this (especially the opinion of Phydios, if not too much to ask). :lol2:

Nah, go ahead and choose option 3 if you'd rather pick that one. I'd just prefer you don't pick option 1 (though it is, of course, your nation, so you're free to do what you wish - but you already said you were being a little OOC on the previous issue for the sake of helping map the chain, so I assumed you'd be interested in continuing).

I get it. And yes, I am interested in contributing with this chain. I just commented the trend of option 2 (taking into account that this and 3 would be the ones that provide new information). What I wanted to say is: are we totally sure that the first one leads to #795? Because if so, selecting the 2nd option is the most recommended, sequentially.

Furthermore, if another player selects 789.2 to reach #791, we would only need the results for option 3 (yeah: 2 is totalitarian, in my opinion, but I maintain my position of helping, no matter how it may affect the stats of my nation). ;)

Call it 99% sure. Based on the text I have here, it looks very unlikely to not be the case.

Are we still talking about the same issue?

I no longer need any information on any of the results on #789. That's done.

I still need to know the results of #791 option 2 and #791 option 3. Either one would be very useful, and help me narrow down what to ask for next.
