[Q] Region web address manipulation

Postby Kuriko » Sun Apr 05, 2020 11:27 am

Hello there, so I have a question. I know that it's possible to edit a regions address (link) in the search bar in order to see certain things after they're done, but is there a way to edit it in order to see who a region boosted during the most recent Secretary-General election? For instance, I can edit a dispatches link in order to see the raw code if their is no raw link, so is there a way to do the same with a region in order to see who that region boosted?

Edit: Or, in the words of Bormiar, is there a way we could have a record of who regions boosted during Secretary-General elections?

It would be API-able through happenings, but that would be a long process. (List of regions, happenings for each region, search for "boosting") If in the worst-case there's no archive somewhere it would be possible though.

I've looked through multiple regional happenings, and the boosting happening is completely gone.

Huh. I could have sworn there was some "election" filter you could append to the happenings URL and get boosting/vote history. Something like this: https://www.nationstates.net/page=activity/view=region.glass_gallows/filter=election, but perhaps I was mistaken.

Looks like we missed [v], but it would definitely be cool to see this stuff.
