I just purchased Post-Master General. One of the benefits it lists is the ability to make 'custom folders'. I don't know how to do that or even what they are.

Maybe add an FAQ section regarding the Store and telegrams? Or is there already a separate thread dedicated for that?

When you click the drop arrow next to the Inbox, you see an option to change folders, and an option for new folders. It's pretty obvious to anyone who has ever used folders in email programs. I don't recall anyone else asking how to do this, so it's not exactly a "frequently asked question".

I see. I thought it meant for fact books or something. I don’t really bother with the telegrams so I never noticed there was a drop down for folders. Thank you.

I know but I'm saying after bringing back Democratic voters a second time I inadvertently picked the wrong option. Do the issues i have finished doing reset or something?

With the exception of the issues to unlock your capital, leader, and relgion; the issue chains; and the easter egg issues, you can get any issue again so long as you're still eligible for them.

Would there be any issues if I resigned my nation from the WA, started a new country, and then rejoined the WA from my new nation?

u should be fine I assume u no it's only one WA nation and u r allowed to have puppet in the WA as long as ur other nations is not in the WA. The WA doesn't care if it's ur main or puppet just as long as u don't have two WA memberships as it violates the rules

Does the plagiarism rule extends up to when someone takes a template I use for my characters and proceeds to use it without my permission or approval?

I know I seen a mod taking action when someone plagiarized a storefront or embassy page. This one not sure. You can ask in moderation and if someone does plagiarize report it there.

I have the notice subscription on for it, but when quoted in the RMB, I was not alerted via notice. It's fine, because I actively read the RMB anyways, I'm just curious if this is reminiscent of a larger issue at play.

The [nation=long] BBCode, which works on the main website, doesn’t appear to work on the
forums. Will this be implemented at any point?

Probably not. We're using mostly out-of-the-box phpBB software for the forums. All the game BBcode is custom written for the site. We're not doing any more modifications to the phpBB, but long term plans call for us to replace it with a bespoke version.

Thanks, Fris.

Sorry for another thing, but I posted this on the GA FAQ and was redirected to Moderation by Ara (but technical seems more appropriate to me)

On the GenSec page of the main site, the following text can be seen:

As a new body, its mission and rules are not yet fully formed. Discussion is welcomed in the General Assembly forum.


Considering GenSec has been in existence for almost three and a half years now, will this be changed anytime soon?

What are the powers of the secretary-general or is it just a name-tag?

The fact that the election was launched on April Fools, combined with a News Post that points out the absence of any powers should be a clue that it's just a hollow honor.

Hey there,

The links in the "Useful/Rare Pages" section for MaxChat 3 and 4 are broken. I even tried to use a link that would be uniform with the other 3 MaxChats (which all work). Are these transcripts lost to history?

What exactly do you mean? You can certainly repeal commendations and condemnations, if that's what.
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!

Well, it depends on who you're telegramming. If you send a mass recruitment telegram to people outside your region, then that requires stamps.

Narth Talmals wrote:Also, Even though I am a delegate, It dosen't say on the region page that I am.
That would be because you currently have 0 endorsements. You need to join the WA (which you've done), then, other people (not just other accounts that you've made) need to join your region and endorse you.

Just to be clear, you can't have more than 1 nation in the World Assembly at a time, so you must find a way to get other people to join your region and endorse you if you want to become delegate.
