Nation's Timetables are mismatched

Postby Concurria » Sat Jul 11, 2009 6:57 pm

I apologize if this has been suggested. I could not find it in the sticky.

I noticed that the way time progresses for our nations doesn't match the way legislation is brought forward. It says I legalized something 9 hours ago, yet my country has undergone change that would take months.

I realize that NS is a sim with exaggerated effects, but I think it'd be a quick fix if the Dev team is open to it. Just posting this to get thoughts.
" I stopped being Pro-choice the day my baby turned 2. At the party, he turned to me, opened his mouth, and unleashed a stream of mucus and snot that I didn't know a baby was capable of. I was gonna murder the little bugger until I realized instantly that his youth didn't justify my anger. That's when I said that regardless of my perceived incapability as a mother, I am capable, 'cuz I do know better. "

There is no fixed conversion rate between real-life time and NationStates time. In fact, the flexibility of allowing time to pass at different rates as time permits is very useful for roleplaying threads. Besides, it's quite useful to know the real-world time for a bunch of other things that the same timestamping engine is used for, such as WA proposal expiration times.
