Lost File

Postby System Telerin » Sun Sep 13, 2020 8:39 pm

System Telerin demands recovery for its lost file Factbook "Nuclear Power Expansion" (Economy), which it was accidentally deleted because there was an error that the title was too short (I did not put the title but it was already planned) then I went to the home page of the nation, I went again to Factbooks, I set it to create a Factbook and the text came out empty. It was not saved.
Can it be recovered? I do not do it for me, but also to the other nations that happened to them. So this must be recovered please. Sincerely, NationStates.

Firstly; you've got the wrong forum. Got Issues? is for the daily issues that your nation faces, problems with the game go in Technical.
Secondly, "demanding" recovery won't get you anywhere - no-one gets paid to be here, not even staff - they're all volunteers on their own time.
Thirdly, this isn't NS's problem.

If you never successfully pressed "post" then the factbook never got sent to NS, which means there is no hope of it getting "recovered". You typed the whole thing into your browser, and NS never even saw it, because you tried to post, then it failed, then by going to your nation page you got rid of it.

I'm sorry to say that your factbook is definitely lost. For future reference, try putting "work in progress" in the title, or perhaps drafting it in a Word document and copy-pasting it over.

Correct. Moved.

Sorry, no. The game doesn't save drafts. That's why we recommend you do your composing offline in some form of word processor, where saving is automatic.
