I would just like to know why there is a 25 Factbook limit, but a seemingly no-limit for dispatches? I said seemingly because there doesn't seem to be any limit so far and I'm not going to test it out with spammy dispatches to test that it's unlimited. :P

The factbook system (as far as I remember) pre-dates dispatches, so this likely has something to do with it.

I am currently a W.A, delegate of a region. If I leave my region for a bit and then come back. will I lose Delegate status?

Delegates are elected and endorsements are counted during update. If you are absent from your home region during major or minor update, your Delegacy will be lost and your endorsements stripped. Updates run for about an hour each at noon and midnight EST, so be sure to stick around at those times.

I have made three NS regions, and I noticed that all three of them originated in The West Pacific. Does the region where one originates depend on their location in real life?

By the way, thanks for all of your responses to my questions! They have been very helpful. :)

Assuming you're meaning nations. Nations are randomly put in the 5 Feeders, the Pacific, the West Pacific, the East Pacific, the North Pacific and the South Pacific. You just got really lucky, as the odds of that happening are 1/125.

If you actually were meaning you founding new regions, guessing that you'd be referring to which region the nation you used to found the region came from.

The game doesn't use your RL location for anything more than moderation (basically WA checking and informing schools/law enforcement on occasion for especially dodgy players).

The odds of them all being put in TWP are 1/125, yes, but the odds of the second & third nations both being put in the same feeder as the first -- whichever feeder that was -- are only 1/25.

I meant nations. That was an error on my part.

I've got a couple questions about Z-day. First I understand that new nations can't be made during it. Does that go into effect only while the event is ongoing, and if not when exactly does it start and end? Also Is it possible to send cure missiles/hoards/ect across regions, without moving nations? As I remember it's not. If it's not is there a delay after you move similar to the delay after getting hit by a missile?

Is there any rule about how much I can reference something within a joke nation I'm thinking of making? I don't want all of my nations to be deleted because of copyright infringement if the flag happens to be a picture from a movie scene and the nation's title is a quote from that scene.

Could that not be changed? It's rather an issue.

When a mod posts in the forum through their account and a nation replies in the forums, do the mods tend to read and reply to the responses?

Also, when the NationStates Moderators account posts in an RMB, do they get notifications when the post is liked or quoted? Do they read the responses or do they ignore the responses?


BTW, these are some previous questions that as of now, are unanswered (I do not have answers for them).

Can't speak for every other mod, but I read every new post in Moderation and Technical. I reply when necessary. I generally don't see replies to mod warning posts in most other forums, and rarely reply a second time.

Persia-Kebabistan wrote:Also, when the NationStates Moderators account posts in an RMB, do they get notifications when the post is liked or quoted?

No.

Depends on when and where. Sometimes we pay attention. Sometimes we don't.


The Z-Day question has been answered elsewhere and can be found by searching. The Joke nation question is too hypothetical to provide a meaningful answer.
