I am a returned NS player, started to play again about January. As all retired or experienced NS players usually have a "nostalgia" about their past regions, I tried to visit several regions I used to have roleplay and gameplay in, and I found that those regions have CTE'd either because the residenst has left it or they also CTE'd.

Is there a way to see the region (the WFE, the RMB) if they has ceased to exist?

When a region is gone, it's gone for good. But you can try web archives like the Wayback Machine. They might give you some snapshots of your old regions.
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!

Yes, via the Wayback machine. You can recreate the region, if you want. Just use puppets, and try to replicate what you can remember.

Speaking of regions that have ceased to exist, how often are region names reserved - I've only come across it once I was interested what the process is behind that and what criteria have to be met for that to happen?

There's no way for ordinary players to reserve region names, only the Admins and maybe the Game Mods can do so... and generally speaking, I think, they do so only for regions that have been involved in such grievous offences for their permanent destruction to seem an appropriate punishment.

Thanks! Wouldn't have been involved in that incident but maybe something occurred I wasn't aware of

Using the forum via smartphone...


When I click on the 'your posts' page, is there a way for me to find the link to my exact post? It's getting hard to follow my posts where I would like to have a dialogue with people who replied.... I'm usually sitting through pages hoping to find it....

Example
If you see the little red thing, when you click it, it will bring you to a page with that post as your start point and it's url in your browser bar. It works fine with non-red ones also, that's just indicates unreadness.

I don’t get notifications when this one nation quotes me, is this a common issue?

Did you uncheck the checkbox?

No it only happens with this one nation, not the entire region. I don’t really know how this happened.

I have a feeling you didn't actually look at the link. That's not a regional setting - it's a national setting. You get to it from your Notices / Subscriptions. Go look again.

Waddup, my dudes.

It seems we're rapidly approaching my 4th year of running this magnificent trainwreck of a thread. I've been pretty busy with RL drama and family issues, but if there's any suggestions people want to see implemented hit me up.

I was wondering this myself earlier and I don't think the answer you got was quite what you were looking for, since it didn't answer my question at least... I think the best way to do it, which I just discovered, is actually to go to the bottom of your nation page, where there's another link to "your forum posts". This page is actually different and will have a 'jump to post' link, even in situations where you've read the rest of the thread.

Did you login to another nation while you were writing it? Or did you login to the nation on another device at the same time? Copy the text into a notepad, refresh, reopen the page, then try again.
As always, I'm representing myself as a citizen, rather than as part of the Government, if I am at the time.

You don't. That was disabled a while back. People reported the subscription emails as spam, restricting NS's ability to send necessary email. So it had to go. Some mentions of it remain, like in the UCP.

Flag

Postby Wyrdas » Fri Sep 13, 2019 8:09 pm

Hello.
  My flag was removed because it allegedly violates some rules. I'm not exactly aware of what. I am aware that there is half the flag of the Third Reich in the lower left corner. The other half is the flag of the European Union. It is not about supporting Nazism. It is a comparison of modern Nazism in the form of the European Union. I had this flag for years and it was never a problem. It also expresses my belonging to the nation and hometown. Then there is the coat of arms of the Soviet Union - which reflects the harmony with my state. So massive military socialism. Can I get a statement of what specifically is wrong at this time? I need help to know what specifically is wrong. And if it's "really" wrong. If after so many years a small double flag in the lower left corner bothers you? If so, I'll fix it. I've always played simply. He answered questions and enjoyed his nation. I have no experience with forums and therefore I apologize. I couldn't find a better thread. Unable to reply to flag removal message. I also apologize, my English is not good.
Thank you.
