Change Nation Name

Postby United Nations of Via Knabo » Wed Oct 17, 2018 10:01 am

Is it possible to change the name of my nation? When I made this nation I messed up and I've invested too much time to delete it.

It is not possible to change your nation name.
You can, however, make a new nation with your proposed name.

To be pedantic here. It is possible but only for slight name name changes, like mis-spellings.

If you think that you've invested too much time in your nation, why not just keep the name? You could probably edit the pretitle to state: "Grand Duchy of X, formerly " I think that gets around the issue somewhat. Otherwise as above you'll need to found a new nation. There's nothing saying you can't keep your current nation as a puppet though. I've done much the same many a time.

Only for changes in capitalisation, you mean. I could change this nation's name to "GHOST LAND" or "GhOsT lAnD" or "GHOST land", but I couldn't change it to "Gh0st Land", let alone "Powderbringia", even if said name was available.

If you want to change your nation's name, you're out of luck; you'll have to create a new one with the desired name.

Ghost Land is correct. While we've done one or two name changes in the last couple of decades, the last one broke a whole bunch of stuff. I believe the admin reaction was "never again!"

So make a nation called "Via Knabo". It's still available as of now...
Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

I think you’re large enough that you can do custom titles. You can’t just do an underscore or anything, I just tested it, but be creative and see what you can come up with. Honestly I don’t think it sounds bad at all though.
