Is My Lasagna Cold really an "(Ancient)" nation?

Postby Tinhampton » Wed Jul 28, 2021 5:24 pm

This thread from 2018 contains all six posts of a user known as "My Lasagna Cold (Ancient)". A quick look at the Boneyard, however, will reveal that no nation called My Lasagna Cold existed until 2018, and that nation is now CTEd rather than alive and kicking and hoisting the flag of Bangladesh; the non-ancient My Lasagna Cold joined the forums the second after the ancient one did. So just how and why are there two My Lasagna Colds on the forum but only one My Lasagna Cold gameside? :P

This doesn't seem to be a one-time glitch and I noticed it happening again as recently as a few minutes ago with a nation named "Sacynia" (EDIT: I originally said that Sacynia's profile has been fixed, but it hasn't and it needs some attention). I think there might be some underlying problem here...

Does seem to be an increase lately. I’ll ping the admin about it.

Puppet of Eshialand.

Good news: I figured out how to replicate this glitch, to try and unlock its inner mechanics.

By rapidly reloading the page the very first time I loaded the forums with this nation, I managed to attach THREE forum accounts to it: Subita, Subita (Ancient), and Subita (Ancient II). This may be because it sends the instruction to create the account multiple times, in the same way that reloading the page after sending a telegram or posting an RMB message causes that action to be performed again.

I hope this helps squash the bug. If not, I'm sorry for wasting your time.

The only known nation in all of NationStates with three forum accounts?

Should be merged with viewtopic.php?f=15&t=508138 imo. It is about the same thing.

Agreed. This seems like the exact same bug.

Admin is aware. As long as the proper forum account is linked, the extra (Ancients) don't seem to be causing an issue.
