I set up an account, which I promptly forgot about. I spent some time lurking occasionally until 2013, when I founded a nation that I actually used.

But that's none of my business.

(Hm, this has been quite dead for a while)

So I have a question;

When you bump a thread but everybody ignores it and a few days after, is it legal to delete the bump post and reply again?

I don't know if it's illegal per se, but as policy I try to bump threads no more than once, and after at least two days per bump, so as not to spam. If your first bump post wasn't sufficient to revive the thread, then I would say to just move on.

Try your best to be creative in your posts, with the exception of certain threads where no effort is expected.

Don't doublepost (meaning, don't respond to the person who responded to you) except to review their response (clarify misconceptions about your nation and such). If you have to do that, do so very sparingly and use "/skip" at the end of your post to remind them that the post isn't part of the game.

This isn't really an F7 question, cuz DEAT isn't an F7-exclusive term but DEAT = deleted. As in 'an account that got deleted by the mods for rulebreaking'.

IIRC the term originated in like the hella early days of this site as a misspelling of 'death', think it was some user in those days who kept calling for people's deaths or something but their English wasn't very good, so they kept calling for people's deats instead.

[b][i]"Progress is what the Commonwealth needs to remain as a beacon of civilization."[/i]
- Aisling Duval[/b]

Aisling Duval (b.13-June-12195) is the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_52]52nd Prime Director[/url] of Nevertopia, leader of the Spring Court and a prolific civil rights activist. She is known as a kind-hearted [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altruism]altruist[/url] who consistently believes in giving everyone in her nation a chance to change and grow into better people over time. Regardless of how many people ridicule her dream, she’s determined to make a fiscal way of eliminating all [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poverty]poverty[/url] a reality. Despite her youth, the people’s princess (as she is sometimes known) is extremely popular with common Nevecians. She appears to be a shrewd politician, although many would argue that her advisors provide her with a veneer of acumen. She is young at only 25, and very visible in the media, regularly appearing on lightweight chat shows, but tends to avoid anything where she might have to face tough questions.

She is against the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery]slavery[/url] deeply rooted within the world of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abeir-Toril]Abeir-Toril[/url], borrowing much of her policies from the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_civil_rights_movement]civil rights movement in 1960s American history[/url] back on [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth]Earth[/url] and founded a non-government charity named Unchain. She is known for her dislike of government corruption, partly due to the suspicious circumstances surrounding her mother's death from an [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aneurysm]aneurysm[/url] caused by a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drug_overdose]narcotics overdose[/url] shortly after her birth. Combined with her father's unfortunate legacy from a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedonism]hedonistic[/url] lifestyle, this has left Aisling with a passion for helping those whose lives have taken a turn for the worse. At heart Aisling is a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populism]populist[/url], taking many of her views from the public mood. She splits her personal time between managing her [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charitable_organization]charity[/url], and spending time with her [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coma]comatose[/url] father in Achenar.

[size=125]Formative Years[/size]

Born out of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriage]wedlock[/url] in Cubeo, Cemiess, Nevertopia, Aisling is the daughter of retired politician Harold Duval and his mistress, the deceased actress Imogen "Eccentrica" Gabrielini. She is the eldest out of Harold Duval's known children. As a child she excelled in her studies and was constantly placed in advanced classes, this would often lead to her isolation as she would often leave her peers behind and be place with children in an older age group. She studied at Cemiess Bardic College, where she was the student representative on the school's Board of Trustees. Whilst still at school she found her first job working at a local fish-and-chip shop. She attained a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bachelor_of_Arts]Bachelors of Arts[/url] in politics and public relations with Honours from Cemiess Bardic College by the age of 22.

[size=125]Military Career[/size]

[i]"This is for you new people. I have one rule, everyone fights, no one quits. You don't do your job I'll shoot you. Do you get me?"[/i][url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starship_Troopers][sup](1)[/sup][/url]
- Operative Corporal Duval.

At the age of 18 she would be [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conscription]conscripted[/url] and placed into the Nevecian Arcanum due to her mastery of Bardic spellcraft, attaining the rank of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporal]Corporal.[/url] While there she earned a reputation as an [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite_Dangerous]elite and dangerous[/url] operative, deploying in high risk anomalous combat, infiltration and extraction scenarios against the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illithid]Mindflayers[/url] and became a primary military advisor to then Major-General Nydoorin for a major offensive operation against the Illithid threat and liberation of their mind slaves. Nydoorin evaluated Aisling's leadership during the operation as "nothing short of brilliant". When Aisling returned to Cubeo, Nydoorin sent an open letter to the local press which called Aisling "the best single Nevecian intelligence asset in theatre", stated that her work saved "a multitude of coalition lives", and noted that the Nevecian Forces should "seek her advice on how to change our entire tactical intelligence training and architecture".

Aisling has been cited in dispatches for the usefulness of her tactical [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counter-insurgency]counter-insurgency[/url] knowledge in the planning and implementation of an unnamed operation in 12214 to secure important terrain. Her experience dealing with Illithid psychic combat, eldritch [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biological_agent]bioweapons[/url], and mastery over personnel-based [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_of_Military_Things#Mosaic_Warfare]mosaic warfare[/url] would earn her the admiration of her subordinates as a brave and ferocious leader. During the mandatory 2 year service of her conscription however, tragedy struck as her father would be left comatose after a car accident due to [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drunk_drivers]driving while intoxicated[/url]. After her mandatory service had ended she would then decide to enter politics instead of continuing her career in the Arcanum.


[size=125]Political Career[/size]

Aisling was brought into politics by her father, Harold Duval, a longstanding member of the Winter Court, who recruited the teenaged Aisling to help him with campaigning for [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innsmouth]New Innsmouth[/url] MP [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_Role]Scanlan Shorthalt[/url] during his re-election campaign at the 12210 general election. She later joined the Spring Court of Nevertopia at the age of 20, and became a senior figure in the civil rights sector of the party. After graduating from the bardic college, she spent some time working on a private venture with a few of her close fellow graduates that would lead to the creation of her Unchain charity foundation. After a period of time in [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anor_Londo]Anor Londo City[/url], where she [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volunteering]volunteered[/url] at the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soup_kitchen]soup kitchen[/url] her charity ran and worked on a workers' rights campaign, Aisling moved to the capital city of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloodborne]Yharnam[/url] where she became the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCP_Foundation]Minister of Security, Containment and Protection[/url] after being handpicked by then Prime Director and former Winter Court leader Kars Esidisi in no small part due to her prolific military career.

After the dissolution of Prime Director Kars' government in 12219 due to a public brawl with a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_JoJo%27s_Bizarre_Adventure_characters#Jonathan_Joestar]Sun Soul Monk escalating to his death via thrown into an erupting volcano[/url] she was chosen to be party leader of the Spring Court and formally announced her candidacy for Prime Director soon after. Her tragic family history, accolades earned during her tour of duty and her body of work with the disenfranchised would prove overwhelmingly popular with Nevecian society earning her the nickname of "the people's princess" and culminating in her election as the youngest Prime Director in Nevecian history.

[img]https://www.politicalcompass.org/chart?ec=-2.88&soc=-5.23[/img]
Aisling has described herself as a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_democracy]social democrat[/url], a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressivism]progressive[/url], a [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic]republican[/url] and an [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egalitarianism]egalitarianist[/url], citing [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mobile_Suit_Gundam_Wing_characters#Relena_Peacecraft]Relena Darlian[/url] as a political heroine, and has described [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalism#Modernity]21st century Earth capitalism[/url] as a "blatant failure" due to the extent of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_poverty]child poverty[/url] and [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homelessness]homelessness[/url] at the end of Earth's history. She advocates a lower rate of [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration]immigration[/url], suggesting a drop of around 20,000–30,000. Calling it an "infrastructure issue", she argues, "there hasn't been enough planning about population growth, we haven't necessarily targeted our skill shortages properly". However, she wants to increase the intake of refugees.

Aisling believes the retention or abolition of Feywilds electorates should be decided by the Feywilds, stating, "[The Feywilds] have not raised the need for those seats to go, so why would we ask the question?" She supports compulsory teaching of the Sylvan language in schools.

As Prime Director, Duval has chosen to represent and protect the following values as part of her campaign promises.

[size=125][anchor=religious]Religious Views[/anchor][/size]

Duval's father was a devout [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Greyhawk_deities#P]Pelorist[/url] and her mother converted from [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forgotten_Realms#Religion]Lathanderism[/url] to Pelorism just prior to their wedding. As a child, Aisling attended Mass each Sunday and said her prayers each night before bedtime. She became a lapsed Pelorist at age 18, as she felt that much of his day-to-day life was not addressed by the formality and structure of the church. Duval described her faith during this period as "like so many Pelorist across this country, I said, 'OK, I'm Pelorist, I'm of faith, but I'm just not really going to go to church. Maybe on Edoiras Feast, maybe midnight Mass at Breadgiving Eve.'"

After the death of her [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orc#In-fiction_origins]half-brother Thokk[/url] in 12215, Duval went on a month long [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilgrimage]pilgrimage[/url] and explored [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion]divinity among the various faiths[/url] present in the nation, during which she renounced any form of faith completely. In 12216, when pressed on the topic Duval stated, "My own personal [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morality]morality[/url] has been shaped by the different religions I learned from during this time in my life and I find myself following the cause of love and peace that unites these faiths together instead of any one doctrine. That is an extremely important part of who I am and the values that I try to lead with."

Is there a guide or any tips for making a Future Compass? The format looks really interesting. I'm also curious is there's an origin to these; like, where does the idea come from?

i have responded but 2 months late

here's the 4x4 grid variety of it, you can basically fill in whatever axes you want with whatever font you want, although usually i see terminal-based font used for those. the one i used is called Perfect DOS VGA 437 which is a pretty good replica of the type of font used on MS-DOS and other DOS derivatives from the 1980s. i used photoshop to cleanly insert the images into their little grids, (special paste into) and then to make the white text stand out from the image i place it on, i use a special effect stroke

photoshop CS6 is pretty handy if you have it on hand, i made my banners, my flags and the future compass with it, although if you get past the learning curve of the GIMP i imagine you could do it with that as well

YN is 'your nation' and AN is 'above nation'.

Hello! Question, is this the right place to ask about what I presume was/is an F7 thread? Anyway, I recall seeing this 'US History Forum Game' (in fact, I think I recall several threads with the same shtick) or something along those lines where posts would progressively add to a fictional list of presidents, and the occasional interregnum. Threads would look something like this:

Post 1:
1789-George Washington-Independent-First President of the United States

Post 2:
1789-George Washington-Independent-First President of the United States
1791-John Adams-Federalist-Second President, did some stuff, blah blah

Post 3:
1789-George Washington-First President of the United States
1797-John Adams-Second President, did some stuff, blah blah
1801-British Occupation-Uh oh, the Brits come a knockin'

Post 4:
1789-George Washington-First President of the United States
1797-John Adams-Second President, did some stuff, blah blah
1801-British Occupation-Uh oh, the Brits come a knockin'
1805-Alexander Hamilton-Led successful rebellion against invading British forces

And so on. Apologies if I am misremembering and this is in fact not a Forum 7 thread/s, but the fact that in some sense, you could call it a posting game and that I'm having a hard time finding these (presume they were lost to the F7 autoprune). Also apologies if this isn't the right place to ask. So, question is: Did these actually exist, and if so, where can I find them? While I don't think I ever participated in them, I do recall them being interesting reads.

I could see it being an F7 game. Much like the ones that add onto each other like the 1000 monkey genocide.

But perhaps you should think of some rules to keep it fresh so you don't end up overshooting into the 2030s or somthing.
But it seems fun, though im not so sure if ever seen anything like it.
The concept sounds familiar though.
