The Great Archive of Nations - Please give generously!

Postby The Great Archive of Nations » Sun Dec 23, 2018 9:19 pm

This post inaugurates the Great Archive of Nations, a non-profit institution whose purpose is to preserve the nations of NationStates by collecting and archiving their cards, with the aim of doing so for every nation and the objective of doing so for as many as possible.

The Great Archive of Nations is especially concerned with the archiving of ex-nation cards. These cards preserve ex-nations in far greater detail than elsewhere; their maintenance is therefore of great historical value for the NationStates community. It is also especially important, since these cards are the last of their kind and therefore irreplaceable.

Donations of cards to the Great Archive of Nations are appreciated, particularly those recording ex-nations. Funding will be maintained through the junking or auctioning of duplicate cards; the Great Archive of Nations will never junk or auction a card otherwise unrepresented in its collection.

Please give generously. Thank you.

This is a good plan. I might have to donate some ex-nations.

Since the creation of the Great Archive of Nations, the number of cards in its vaults has swelled to 146. This level of support is both unexpected and welcome; we are extremely grateful to all who have donated thus far.

To build upon this success, the Great Archive of Nations has created an official signature element:

Code: Select all
[align=center]|[u]EƎ[/u]| Please support [url=https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=456098]the Great Archive of Nations[/url] by donating cards for preservation. |[u]EƎ[/u]|[/align]


If you wish, one way that you can show your support for the Archive is to paste this into your signature, which will also serve to spread word of our work. Anybody who does has our thanks. (Any able to provide superior book character art are welcome to submit it.)

Technical difficulties unfortunately prevent us from bidding for the former card; thank you nonetheless.

Can you explain who is behind the great archive?
Just to give us an idea who will take care of all those precious cards we give away for free.

I suppose that does make sense... Hi! 'Tis me. (Writing in the plural was an affectation. Seems more 'institutiony'.)
Emmet: You might see a mess -
Lord Business: Exactly: a bunch of weird, dorky stuff that ruined my perfectly good stuff!
Emmet: Okay. What I see are people, inspired by each other and by you - people taking what you made and making something new out of it.
