The Illegal Pretitles Marketplace!

Postby Eshialand » Mon May 31, 2021 10:22 am

When you're setting the pretitle for your nation, there are certain limitations in place on top of the usual NS rules: it can't have any punctuation (except apostrophes and dashes), and it has to stay between 2 and 28 characters. Of course, some nations have pretitles which you can't normally have, since game mods have the ability to ignore the aforementioned limitations, creating what I like to call "illegal pretitles".

That's why I've started this thread. If you have any trading cards that have 0, 1, or 29+ characters and/or punctuation (specifically periods, commas, exclamation marks, question marks, colons, semicolons, underscores, parentheses, or brackets) in their pretitles which you want to sell, feel free to advertise them here! I declare the Illegal Pretitles Marketplace open!

For the first card of this new thread, I bring you an S2 RPRA Techcorp, a UR with a 48 character pretitle being sold at junk price.

EDIT: Sold!

What do you think about cards that do the exact opposite?

Rather than have a very weird pretitle, some have no pretitle at all.

That's a type of illegal I've never heard of before, but it seems to be an illegal nonetheless! I'll update the OP to include pretitle-less cards!

I think this card may count https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 1/season=2 in the motto though.
I'm selling at MV.

Nope, your pretitle is only 28 characters, none of which are actually illegal.

Mottos have much looser rules than pretitles, so that's not an illegal.

Space keys at the start and end of pretitles just get chopped off, so that doesn't work. You can't make a pretitle that's all spaces.

I just figured out how to get a "blank" pretitle. You have to use three zero-width space characters (U+200B) separated by alternating spaces. The pattern is ABABA, where A is the no width space and B is a regular space.

You can copy and paste the blank line below for an example:
​ ​ ​

A single character is also possible with ACABA, where C is the desired character.

Example on next line:
​A​ ​

Thus the only pretitles which are truly illegal are those containing more than 28 characters.
