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.

You're getting 4 issues a day, and those are randomly chosen from the issues you are eligible to receive. There is no guarantee that you'll get something to reverse a specific decision that you don't like on any timely basis. It's random.

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?
