Revisiting the "Card Region" tag

Postby Destructive Government Economic System » Sat Sep 19, 2020 1:29 pm

Hi everyone!

A while back I noticed discussion for a relatively easy addition to the game: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=457086

I noted that many people thought it was a decent idea, and the site staff (from what I assumed) seemed to think that adding this would not prove difficult by any means.

Unfortunately, however, there was not a consensus on how the card tag - despite cards now being a regular part of the game - could be added, and primarily for the following reason:

I don't think we ever got around to discussing it.

The proposed tags all seem to point to nations rather than regions. Sure, you can have a puppet park full of card farmers, but is that something that really needs to attract other card traders? Even as an avid cards player, I'm just not seeing the added value here.


I agree that the idea for "card collector" tags was not a good idea after reading the thread. This is mainly due to the fact that the "puppet storage" tag already serves a similar purpose - as card farmers/collectors effectively rely on puppets anyway.




Therefore, I am proposing the following tag instead: Card Programs

Many regions in which I've seen, including The North Pacific, The East Pacific, 10000 Islands, and Lazarus, all have their own dedicated cards programs. This clearly means that they are going out of their way in order to draw in newer players into their regions using the incentive of cards.

Unlike the "card collector" tag, the "Card Programs" tag has a direct benefit for players all around NationStates in that, by searching for a region tagged as "Card Programs", that they'll immediately know that said region(s) are rewarding players who contribute to those regions with cards (through those card programs), therefore benefiting (both) the region - and the player who's working for the region - through card incentives.

(As a side note, Ballotonia himself has also supported the idea for regional card programs after being interviewed recently, so adding the "card programs" tag will only help to promote these programs for those who might not initially know about them - for the benefit of both parties involved.)

This is what I have to say on the matter, and hopefully this suggestion was a much better one than the previous :blush:

Full support as card programs conveys the idea that a region has a developed card program and this concrets it further into reality that cards are part of NS

Unsurprisingly, I am in full support. The concept of a "International Artwork Program" is a much better delimiter between the regions that serve as silos for card farming and those that engage in the trade as a way to build communities. Thanks DGES for the idea, and thank you, moderators, for considering it!

Support, just wondering, would "Cards Programs" be better though? :unsure:

Support as well. I think "Cards" or "Trading Cards" is better than "Cards Program", as different regions may approach cards in different ways. It's also more in line with other tags, e.g., "Security Council" rather than "Security Council Program".

You make it sound like it was not even hard to code in Luna, I don't know coding, but for a server like NS, I would think it would be at least a little hard...
If you want to send me any cards, best if you send it to one of my other nations like Mini Me For Cards 3, I just need more bank on this account if I want to upgrade the limit, but I just keep wanting to buy cards worth more, cards I like or cards for a collection that I am working on, I already had a lot of cards in the catagory, so mind as well make it an official collection that I could possibly already complete. I try not to break the rules, so if I do it by accident, please just tell me mods, although it would have to be through the TG only for mods, like Ransium had to due to class region. I didn't really check for spellings, so it may be a little unclear, sorry. :P More in my factbook on card+gifts. Finally getting my own card soon!
