[H][Q]Mass help needed

I need mass help. All the nations listed below are my puppet.



[Q] What is Adbot/Adspam?

What is the exact definition of that?

A glorious dictatorship, the culmination of hundreds of annexed peoples in hundreds of years under one ruler and culture to supply the homeland.

This is a relatively easy question to answer. Adbots/Adspam is when an Adbot (so called because it's literally a forum bot that handles offsite advertising) performs its programmed task and advertises a website in the NS forums, or when a forum user advertises another website without explicit permission from the moderators or administrators. The reason it's segregated and shoved into a corner is because it clutters up the forums, quite rapidly in fact, and gets posted in places such as International Incidents, which is where the terminology "Adspam" comes into play. Additionally, sometimes (although quite rarely) the advertisements are so egregious that they break multiple rules on their own.

Adbots, when detected or reported, are deleted on sight for the reasons listed above. Forum users that advertise will otherwise face the usual line of consequences until they stop.

Hopefully this helps.
What is on my nation's front page does not reflect my nation in rp. It follows its own distinct lore that is separate from what is defined by the "issues" choices.

We don't delete puppets. Take them off autologin and vacation mode, and don't log into them for 28 days and they will cease to exist.

So long as they are RPs and you are the OP, done.

I am not asking for the erasure of puppet nations. I ask to delete posts and lock these topics. All the nations that started those threads are mine. If you wish, contact them by telegram.

We don't delete posts on request either. You can edit out the information in them.

Puppets confirmed: threads locked.
