I just got cards from season 2 from an issue. Is that supposed to happen?

I'm very pleased that not only cards, but also bids and offers, seem to have been fully restored.

Yes. It's a low percentage chance, but you can draw vintage packs in current seasons.

Funny thing is that my nation had 5 months and 25 days of existence and still didn't get a season 2 card ( i have one but its from a nation that gifted it to me so it dosen't count)

Thank you very much for this. Since my region does a significant amount of RP-related things through the NS polls (as well as the RMB messages being restored a few days ago as well), we especially really appreciate you all having done this.

I believe the CTE extensions are dropping fast now.

Right now it is 32 days, I believe?

What is the schedule for the further lowering of the grace period?

Just curious, but would it be OK to have the post on the News page and/ok the global announcement thread be updated with the latest info? More so that we don't have to wade through 82+ pages to find it.

Oh, and seriously. Thanks to the Admins who fixed this stuff up! I just KNEW that old Salusa lion had new tricks in him. :P

That's awesome, I just checked here to see when that was going to be fixed and I see you're already ahead of me. Good luck!

Same here, except that nearly all of mine have vanished off the face of the earth. I checked them manually and they’re still there in the forums, but they don’t show up through the Forum Posts button.

I made a thread about this and it turns out that it could be a cache error from the crash a few days ago. I’m unsure what to do.

Today is Thursday. The forum re-indexes itself on Thursdays. I'm not claiming that there are no more lingering data issues, but reports of "View your posts" not working crop up regularly on Thursdays.
If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. | Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

All of mine from May 2nd to May 16tth have disappeared. They are still in my post count and I can still manually find them but they don't appear in your posts.

I am unable to login into one of my alts, this just happened recently. I am not sure why or how. I have used same password for that account for over an year without issue now .-.

I suspect someone else might have logged in and changed the password, but its just pure speculation as I dont know anyone who would be motivated to do such a thing.

Can I get some help in restoring it? I really dont wanna lose that alt :(

Did you hook it up with an email? If you did, click forgot password. If not, you're probably out of luck.

I didnt add an email to it....since I thought I wont need to as it was just an alt, not my WA main.

Is there no way to recover an account without email? :<

No. You should put your email on all of your nations. We recommend you pick a single email address for all of them to keep it simple. This also helps prevent accidental WA multiing.

NS does not use player emails for any purpose other than password recovery, apocalypse notifications, and WA verification. We don't spam your email from our site unless you request it. We don't sell your emails or other information to anyone else. Adding an email address does no harm and actually does some good.

Cant you just check the alt and the corrupted or changed password for it, by accessing your database if I tell the name of the alt account in question? You could verify it was used by me similar to how moderators can check if a person is doubling their WA account on same device or using device that has logged into another WA account before.
I could do without having to start from scratch all over again, after developing that account for 3 years and integrating it into my rps and lore :(

If not, then oh well, that's a bummer. I will add email to my other alts then.
Thanks for the info. Sorry for the bother.

Sorry you're having trouble accessing your nation. Unfortunately, there are only two acceptable proofs of ownership of a nation: being able to login with the password, or having access to the recovery email to reset the password via the Forgot your password link. If you forgot the password; and either didn't set or don't have access to the recovery email; that nation is lost to you.

We recommend that you try the various emails you might have used in the past. NationStates moderators are not permitted to accept any other evidence of ownership.
