The Unofficial Guide To Role-Playing Abbreviations


Roleplay*-[roll’-play]-v To act out a story, or play a role, on the NationSates forum. EX: If you want to start a war, you will not just say, “We are going to war, who will join me?” Instead, you could play the role of your leader, telling your nation that they are going to war. This makes the thread more interesting, and more people will be inclined to post there. A Roleplay n A story told through roleplaying.(-ing, roleplaying,-ed, roleplayed, RP, RPed, RPing)


Tech Level*-[tehk leh-vul]-n The level of technology that a nation’s military operates

PMT = Post Modern Tech

From what I understand, it's technology that's already in development or close to being in development but won't be ready for a decade or more. It could go as far out as 2050ish or wherever FT begins.

After receiving information from Euroslavia, about a jackpot of definitions and abbreviations in the old Jolt Forum, we immediately ran to the scene of the crime to find the extensive list, after the Unjoltifiying Team was done cleaning the documents, we securely ran them over here and added them to glorious list. This list is now completely redone and much, much more extensive.

Very awesome list. The only thing that I'd suggest is to remove the pink color in place of something darker, because it can be a pain to see for some people. Other than that, love it. I'm going to temporarily sticky it to make it's existence known, then toss it into the Information Desk.

Folks, I'd like to toss out a voice of dissent about the definition of Godmod as presented here.

Please see my arguments here.
The short version is that I don't believe that definition number two is at all accurate.
2. To roleplay troop numbers, or any force for that matter, that are unrealistic. EX: A new nation with a population of 7 million says that he/she has “8 million troops and 10,000 fighter jets, with 100,000 nuclear weapons.” That is unrealistic.

Yes, it is unrealistic. Yes, it is unfair. No, it is not a God Mode action.
As I state in my thread On the Nature of Godmode, the above is a violation of an often held convention or tradition that ones In Character forces are limited in some fashion by one's NationStates profile population number. This tradition is not strictly defined, and it is not a rule. Furthermore, I have seen a number of instances where this tradition was either poorly defined, or simply not used at all by a group of players.

I quote the following from the Moderator's One Stop Rules Shop:
Godmoding, Godmodding, and Wanking: The general idea behind godmoding, as its name makes evident, is making yourself or your nation godlike in power and unable to die. It is commonly used by first-time roleplayers, and is frequently accompanied by Smilie Spam (see below). Under most circumstances, godmoddery is not a moderation offense unless it turns to spam. At that point, godmode n00b wars will often be locked or moved to the spam forum. Note that flaming in response to n00bish behavior is still forbidden. For more information, see this thread.


Nowhere in the rules is Godmod (Godmode, God-Mode) explicitly defined. I posit to you all here that the only rules are those handed down by Max Barry, site Administrators [violet] and SalusaSecondus, and the site and forum Moderators. Anything else which is commonly accepted by the players is tradition, convention, and good/bad form.

Just to reiterate my position here. I take umbrage at the misconceptions which have led to rampant claims of Godmod for:
1. Using excessive In Character military forces, far beyond what tradition states your NS-pop allows.
2. Mixing MT and FT. This is not even a clear-cut tradition, unless it is used to gain an unfair advantage in a particular thread.

Neither of these should be considered as part of the definition of Godmod (Godmode, God-Mode) behavior.

Thank You, yes, I noticed that too, I have now switched it to a more "peach" color, to make it much easier to read. And Thank You, I think a temporarily sticky is perfect and I would love to see it tossed into the mix of the International Incidents Information Desk.

As you argued out, that the second definition for godmod is inaccurate, and I agree. Knowing that many nations RP happily and with great style. They can create great RPs not using accurate population markers that correspond with their NS Populations. But, others will get extremely annoyed by the fact that nations do so. So therefore, I will remove that definition. Because although it is an annoyance to some players and a great thing for others, it is not, as you put it so neatly, godmodding.

Thank You For Bringing This To My Attention!

It doesn't have to be an 'international incident'. It's a help thread for the forum. It identifies a lot of terms used here.

Edit: Note how all of the stickies at the top of this specific forum are not international incidents, but helpful threads so that you might understand what goes on here.

That defeats the purpose of having helpful threads at the top of each forum. Having one forum dedicated to it would not only be overwhelming, as to what information you'd find helpful for specific forums, it'd just be very inefficient. When newer players join nationstates and browse each forum, they can see specific stickies dedicated to help that person understand that specific forum rather than a massive clump of helpful threads in one forum and not associated with their respective forums.

Perhaps editing your quotes to prevent quote pyramids would be helpful.
Perhaps not arguing with the Moderator who stickied this thread, and even included an explanation of why he did so, would be wise.
