So, in building a regional role-play, could I get a few canonical name drops?
A notable leader, or nationality, that would start and finish an argument on Twitcher
A notable nation whose leader has no clue what they are doing
A notable two-party state that has no agreement between the two parties
Cheers, and forgive me if this is misplaced. :)

Uh, do you mean help in coming up with names for creating such instances,
or names of those meeting your criteria which are already canon?

I can drop all kinds of names and whatnots left and right but in the roleplay stratosphere I'm but a pocket of magma.

The mention of Twitcher has me assume that KexinNation is asking for pre-existing in-issue names, which was why I asked in the Got Issues? Discord. I know the annoying Twitcher character is Blackacre's supreme leader, at least.

Oh! I see!

Well, if you want canon, in-issue leaders and nations, then it just so happens I run the list of ingame nations. :)

1. Blackacre, whose leader is Valeria Drake and literally does this exact thing.
2. (Aside from your own) Nothing concretely established as so, however, there are a couple possibilities: Possibly Bigtopia, and almost definitely Ausblic (they gifted you five thousand fruit baskets). Tasmania's also pretty high up there, and I'm not throwing out the possibility of Zompaboodaland's leader being totally clueless either.
3. Total gridlock state? Easy - we actually have an issue that specifically makes this detail known (1163) about Brancaland! (Though you could also probably use Merovingia, which is based on Belgium, or the United Federation, which... well, hopefully that one's obvious.)

If you want to learn a bit more about these nations - and others like them - I actually have a full list here!

I would appreciate some help with designing threads for the RP I’m planning to do after my exams end. The problem is that I know next to nothing about making threads in NS. Perhaps someone could’ve helped me?
I’ll give more details if anyone would wish to assist me if that’s a wrong thread to post in apologies

If you're trying to formulate a roleplay thread idea, the RP Think Tank is better for that purpose, but I wouldn't expect anyone to be annoyed at your post here.

This subforum? Yes.

Now for a question of my own. How old would a thread be to consider gravedigging?

So, using This exchange before the cultimation here, I plan to have something like an internal discussion about the upper board happen regarding the topic of slavery.
It certainly would be singleplayer RP, but I'm not sure if I should make it open for others or how I should accomplish that even.
NS Stats do not count, unless it is funny.
The Transcripts canonically do not exist and merely serve to make the garbled Wormsspeak readable.
Canon Policies.
Open to RP, send me Telegrams, Pretty much compatible with everything.

Sorry about the lack of response here. I didn't have this thread in my history previously to monitor it.

Yes. You can also RP it in the International Incidents forum. Either one works.

It's not an exact science, but I would say that unless you're a current participant, don't post if there hasn't been one within the month. If you are a current participant, then it's usually not a gravedig under most circumstances.

I don't particularly imagine that others will have much interest in RPing characters in from your nation discussing internal concepts for you. I can always recommend a "maintenance thread" though, which is basically a solo-RP thread for all the things that might be important but don't really fit in other threads.

So, I've decided to try and get some more posts of off Forum 7, and I think I should get into the roleplay part of this forum. However, I can't seem to find something to get into, considering the fact that I am a Mediterranean version of North Korea that also happens to be very isolationist. As such, it's hard to find something that is compatible with my lore. Is there any way in which I might be able to get a good RP that would work with my lore?

You definitely are starting with one big self inflicted strike against you. Basically, you have to have your nation care about an event enough for them to come out isolation to react to. Which you don't want to do right now because nothing is compatible with your lore. You might be waiting a while for something that comes close to your lore if you can't find excuses why your nation could be part of someone else's events.

Or...
You need to create a RP where your nation and its characters are the focus. Perhaps something happens there, where other nations take notice, when up to now, they have not been concerned with your nation due to your isolationist nature. It's a hard sell to anyone outside your region, and probably even within, to join such an RP. I suggest you start an OOC brainstorming thread to see who would join you in such an RP and what compromises you could make so you all get something out of being part of it.
TG me with questions if you got some, especially about GE&T or PMCs.
