Anything with "nazi" in is blocked. There's very few Scunthorpes for that term, but Internazionale fans are in trouble; evidence of a clear mod-bias in favour of AC Milan.

Out of curiosity I tested it.

Funny you say that, I actually have an Inter Milan nation called Internazionale!

Edit: of course, created way before the mod-enacted order.

Yep, it was one of the nations we sorted through. It got put in the "okay" pile for "Nazi or not?" but "not so okay" pile for "taste in football teams".

From the Regional Happenings of the region of Nazi:

23 minutes ago: The Roving DEAT Distributor of Mod Puppet ejected and banned The Grand Duchy of Major Update from the region.

:(

Oh well, it's for a good cause. I was happy to help out and keep a puppet alive in case the nazi region founder was inadvertently inactive over the years.

You can always poke me again if you need a puppet stored somewhere for moderation purposes.

Ahh, I see. Very nicely done! ♥

So, as a random fun fact, I am currently using the data of all the nations that I have obtained from Feb 2021. Said data was for my data analysis purposes in Got Issues, and as a random thought, I assumed that this would delete a great chunk of nations that might potentially affect my results. Turns out, my filter shows that there were only 110+ nations (as of Feb 2021) with the word "Nazi" inside.

They shall not be missed, I suppose. 110+ nations out of 230,000+ is just a small drop in the database that I will work on.

EDIT: It used to say 118, but I would put it at 110+. Some of the nations are still around, and not-a-mod that it doesn't seem to be Nazi nations. Just the spelling alone is not a tip off, please correct me if I am wrong.

The vast majority of the regions we cleared were also trophies held by anti-Nazi factions. I think maybe 5 or 6 tops were active Nazi regions.

Although it’s removing some of our freedom of speech at least it’s a good thing. I don’t really want to see people approving the Nazis and ignoring everyone’s counter arguments.

Yeah, with the new Beta stats coming in, I suppose it's time for new batch of data. One that is not haunted by Demonic Nazis.

This is atrocious.

While I absolutely abhor the Nazi party for all of the evil that they committed, this is just a game, and this move by the moderators merely constitutes yet another violation of free speech on the Internet.

This is equivalent to prohibiting people from playing as Germany in Hearts of Iron IV.

Calm down, it's just the Fash.

Also "it's just a game" doesn't apply anymore when the website is home to actual nazi communities.

NS is a private site, meaning the site owners can do things like this, just like every single other social media platform or forum site.

I’m just confused on why you call this a game. It’s a website and not a game. Also like someone told me there’s no free speech in this website.

@Mods

Is there any possibility of appealing for the restoration of nations that got deleted?

They didn't include the term "nazi", mind you, but appear to have gotten hit over the term "-reich".
