And the six millionth nation is...

Postby The Moose » Fri Oct 26, 2018 5:26 pm

...The Moose! This is a solid milestone for NationStates, which has given me countless hours of entertainment over the years. It is pretty cool to be part of that milestone.

I have two questions:
1. Will there be a news post to celebrate?
2. I remember that Terrible Books, the three millionth nation, got to choose their pretitle without having to wait for the standard 500M population. Any chance of that happening again?

Proof: Image
10/26/2018, 6:10:07 PM EDT: Prideful Lifefull was founded in The East Pacific. <- Refreshed on 6000001
10/26/2018, 6:09:56 PM EDT: The Moose was founded in The South Pacific.
10/26/2018, 6:09:53 PM EDT: Fayman Powercardic Ports was founded in The West Pacific. <- Refreshed on 5999999
10/26/2018, 6:09:29 PM EDT: Quaxic was founded in The Pacific.

Screenshots and activity logs can be faked, of course, but these are not. I imagine the admins have their own records anyway.

I doubt it, but you never know.

What the hell. Sure, I'll give you a custom pretitle. What do you want it to say?

It can be safely assumed the only inherent award is the notoriety of timing the nation founding right

It doesn't but Moose has a lovely screenshot and comparative activity feed evidence to verify a claim, and my own nation count agrees with them

Mods can change pre-titles yes, but it's usually for rule-breaking mottos/new-mod hazing

Well, almost anything. We're pretty cool.

When it comes down to it, it's just site-related stuff. We're still hawt.

OK, it's mostly minor cosmetic shit. And we've mostly got vastly inflated egos.

Yes, well, this thread's about The Moose's milestone, not attempts to steal their spotlight.

Yep, the 6th millionth nation is the Moose. Katrina Stormia is holding a military parade, and preparing for Z-Day (which should've been announced by now).

Yeah, it's such a shame.

Hey, maybe on the 7th million nation in 2020 we can have something impressive.

5 mil is a big milestone. I'd have put 10 mil as the next major one for news posts and the whole shazam. Congrats anyway to Moose for the 6 mil mark (haven't checked but trust they're right).
As always, I'm representing myself.

No, the mods wouldn't give that moose a custom pretitle, it received a deat from life due to the most serious breach of the griefing rules in living memory.
