Regional Population Counts

Postby Neasmyrna » Thu Sep 03, 2009 12:06 am

Well... how to explain this.

I'm 99% sure my region had 212-214 people before update started tonight (I remember trying to get 215) ... but I was gone until after update... and when I got back we had only 207 people... and only one nation had been refounded during that time and no one CTEd.

I talked to another founder and he said he may have seen something quirky too (relating to population drops).

I know this is not very helpful... but just checking to see if anyone else has seen anything. I'll watch and see (and let you know) if anything weird continues. :meh:

EDIT: then again I may just be crazy and was day dreaming about having more people :P

but I don't think so...

They were nations that no longer existed. It happened as part of my fixing Africa.

Aren't you glad I raided that region now? I also noticed the same thing last night in Africa but thought it was just because Pyth had turned it into an ADMIN playground.

On that note, Pyth, what the hell did you do to cause all this? :p

I didn't cause all of this. I did cause a small number of nations (one update worth) not to be removed from the region file when they ceased to exist. That's what happened to the former delegate of Africa. And my code in the daily update that was supposed to remove those wasn't working either. I fixed that yesterday, which is why a lot of regions just had a bit of a drop.

What did you mean they were 'suppose' to die?

There was no notices on Regional Happenings or anything like that...You have to see why I am curious about where 30 nations went.

I'm going to guess it's the same situation as Africa. The nation dies but it is not noted by the regional happenings. According to the region, that nation still exists. I say this because in Africa the native delegate CTEd. It was not noted on Africa's Regional Happenings, only on the WA happenings. As the region never recognized that natives non-existence it never appointed a new delegate, even after Lone Wolves United raided it. I'm going to assume that sometime similar happened with your region HEM.

The fact that they ceased to exist had been overwritten. That's why they were still listed in the region. It should all be sorted out tonight, though you still won't get CTE notices for them.
