Kind of unrelated, but yesterday digging in the boneyard I found this oddity:

https://www.nationstates.net/page=boney ... ge_peoples

Original nation from antiquity was last active in Feb 2008 with a population of over 4 billion. New nation with the same name is founded in May 2008, used for five days, and ceases to exist four weeks later with 141 million. Nation names weren't allowed to be recycled at this point, and the only other time a nation with a multi-billion population could see its name be reused was the Griffin Lord glitch (https://www.nationstates.net/page=boney ... iffin_lord). Was this just a weird glitch that happened when Rouge Peoples tried reviving his nation, or did something funky go down here?

You’re quoting posts from seven years ago, and both of the nations involved have ceased to exist. Somehow I don’t think we have to worry about what they’re allowed to do. ;)

Right on the first bit, but not on the second. Besides, Milo did eventually claim Carta for himself, as it says later on in the thread, but I digress.

It's also interesting to see that Yurope's justification for reservation is for being "a former nation of significant size," the standard-issue reasoning for any nation with over 500 million as of CTE time, and not for authoring a WA resolution (i.e. SC#134 "Liberate St Abbaddon.")

My regional founder of Pacifica is BUSTED due to name reasons. I wish the founder replaces the name except for the Region.

A: No.
Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

That would be correct.

This post of mine from higher up on this page also went unaddressed:

Nice grave-dig; the question had already been answered years ago. Presumably it refers to the "this name has been retired" message when typing in Maxtopia or Bigtopia or a few others into the boneyard, which signifies that the name belonged to a notable user and is thus retired to avoid impersonation.

By the way, what happened here? It can't be reproduced now; when you look up Maxtopia in the boneyard now it says the name has been retired (which is what I would have expected all along). But in this snapshot from January 2017, the name was marked as soiled. I also remember seeing this myself around this same time frame. In 2016 and before, the name was marked as reserved by a former nation that had written WA resolutions, which also would have made sense. So why was it soiled in 2017, and was Max's nation really mod-deleted that time around in 2013?

Somebody did something several years ago, and somebody else did something else more recently to change it. I can't think of any "need to know" on your part that would cause me to research the actual events.
