Terms like "roleplay" and "gameplay" are not allowed because they violate Rule 4. They refer to players behind the nation, and they implicitly refer to NS as a game. For additional information on what in-game terms are confirmed legal and illegal, consult the Compendium of Mod Rulings, particularly the legal/illegal terms section.

I recently drafted this proposal and feedback I’ve gotten suggest that I cannot refer to “Roleplay” as such. However, reading over the rules, the closest thing I can find is to not refer to NS as a game

Can anyone confirm this? And if possible, some feedback on how to word the proposal differently to fit with rules?

Rule 4 prohibits certain words from being used, such as Roleplay, and can be found in the mod rulings thread Here. Most times to get around the fact Roleplay is an illegal term people word it differently, such as saying things like "dedication to international relations" and stuff. You want to write it from an IC perspective, not an OOC perspective.

Thanks for the feedback, I’ve edited it to comply

Hello. If a region is passworded by the founder, is liberated by the SC, then the founder ceases to exist, does the liberation stand?

The badge stands, but the Liberation would never have worked in the first place, owing to the fact that they are inapplicable to founder-imposed passwords.

But in that situation the Liberation does mean that if a delegate removes the the founder's password (Can they do that?) they can't then set a new one of their own choice...

Correct. If a delegate or Regional Officer alters a founder placed password in any way the liberation kicks in. So that means if a region is founderless, has a liberation, but also has a founder placed password the liberation won't take effect. But if the region is founderless, has a liberation, and has a delegate or RO that changes the founder placed password the liberation will immediately nullify the password.

Does anyone have an image of the World Assembly Security Council chamber?

At the moment we have to use a stock image off Wikimedia Commons to represent the WASC. :lol:

If we did, it would look something like this. We have a LOT of members. Regions would probably have to share a pod each.

Depends. If we only need to accommodate the delegations of nations that participate in the discussions it could look like this.

I guess I will have to stick with the UN Security Council stock image, as something like the layout of the Galactic Senate in Star Wars is far past the threshold of realism … at least from my point of view. Thanks anyway.
