I call it "The Hazards of Love" It would fit in nicely next to Beauties.

Mommy Dearest
The Men in my Life
Those Other Women
It's all about Me
It's all about SEX
Heaven knows...
Stuff which is NOT my Fault
No make-up vs. Make-up
I never SAID that!

Thank you.

After some more thinking, I've reevaluated it and in my opinion it passes muster now. I like that you've expanded on the other themes besides the parts already covered by existing collections (men and women, for example), so it has been added to Humanity & Society.


Much obliged, kind sir.

In this (early) Weekly Update, the only major change has been an addition of a new collection to the Rarity category. Through a puppet nation, Riemstagrad has decided to start collecting all uncommons, with a good start of over ten thousands so far. Since there are cards from both seasons, it was added in the All Seasons subcategory. This also means that every rarity of both seasons is represented in this thread, either through a season-specific or an all-seasons one. Good luck to Riemst in their uncommon card journey!

That's a nice collection, I've just added it to the Nature subcategory of themed collections.

Interestingly enough, this update also marked the first time in which the original post exceeded the limit of 60,000 characters. Luckily I have a few reserved posts right below the OP, so I shifted the Collection Boneyard part to the 2nd post to make some space in the first.

Small update today: an error regarding the Refrigerator Door collection was pointed out privately so I fixed it, and also Osheiga was added to the list of complete Season 2 legendary collections.

The Haunted Collection

I know it's not super big, but I've gone through all the extant rarity collections a couple of times and haven't found any other cards that I'd like to add to it (there are some ghost pokemon cards, but I was hesitant to add them because if I did those cards would rather quickly outnumber the actual ghost cards, and there are already pokemon collections which display thsoe already, I wanted to keep my collection as mostly traditional ghost, though I did add a single pokemon card in as a nod to them).

Weekly update time! Besides the collection mentioned in the comment below, two other changes to the thread were made this week: Panagouge's collection on Five Nights at Freddy's was added, and Blargoblarg's "Mostly My Little Pony" one was replaced by Triseria's, that is completely themed on My Little Pony despite having fewer cards, hence the change.

The collection may be smaller than the average collection here, but I quite like the selection of cards you've made, so I've went ahead and added it. Furthermore, in the interest of helping it grow, I've searched for possible additions and sent you a few card links by telegram :)

Yah, sadly all Philville collections CTE'd :(
I hope they are doing okay :(

And since it was a deck and not a collection it's a bit harder to make a backup collection.
I should have a at least some unicorns on https://www.nationstates.net/nation=vyl ... /page=deck,
It's just that I'd need to search in all the 3k cards on that deck.

Anyway, here is my start of that collection, not worthy of this thread yet

Yeah, this makes it unrecoverable until when Phil refounds their nations (and there is no Wayback snapshot either). Sadly in this case there's no use placing it in the Collection Boneyard like other CTE collections (due to this caveat of an entire deck rather than one collection), though of course I've saved the entry in an offline file I have for old removed entries, so that I can restore it if/when the collection comes back.

And talking about the Boneyard... quite a lot of other collections have also gone there, especially with Noah's puppets ceasing to exist, as well as some others. A reflection of the activity decline in cards we've seen recently, unfortunately. Luckily, for those, they are still accessible since they are proper collections.

Certainly, it's also larger than the one it's replacing so I have added it.

Lol, it happens sometimes. Anyways, I think the collection has a fair enough size so I've added it as a replacement for Phil's one.

Ratfink's collection I'm still just a rat in a cage is larger than my Squeakers collection, and should replace it.

That is a nice collection indeed, I've replaced your collection with that one as you asked.

Since this is the first update of the month, I checked all collections and their owner nations to see if any had ceased to exist. Some sadly did, but on the other hand, a few also revived and were removed from the Collection Boneyard to be added to their respective categories. Otherwise, a few minor changes to descriptions were made, but nothing else that notable since there have been no posts recently.

I'd like to nominate Words of Wisdom's Collection "Good Reads" - Motivational Mottos; as it's a unique little collection that I think is worth displaying.

Nice to see some comments again, time to answer them!

One Small Island wrote:I'd like to nominate Words of Wisdom's Collection "Good Reads" - Motivational Mottos; as it's a unique little collection that I think is worth displaying.

That is one of the most creative collections I've ever seen, this has of course been included. Definitely an unique collection!

Demara Minji wrote:I'd like to submit my collection A Second Hand Emotion it's got over 100 cards with hearts in it; and I'm sure there are many more for me to collect.

This is a lovely (pun intended) collection as well; even though we have one on the theme of love, I feel like this focuses more on the heart as the symbol so it's been added as well. Congratulations!

While the first one is interesting, I feel like the theme is already covered by Jasminlandia's Beauties collection with over 500 cards. As for the second one, it could be a theme worth of inclusion, but most of the cards are from a raiding/defending switcher set and follow the same theme with little change from one card to the other, hence I feel like it doesn't really meet the requirements of being diversified enough. Yes, there are some collections which rely considerably on puppets, but at least those puppet sets have different flags, names, etc that add in a significant way to the collection rather than subtracting from it due to being puppets. If there are more diversified flags added, then I can of course reconsider.
