Most, if not all of us, have something we did as a new NationStates player, that we look back on and think "....why??"

What's your story?

I named my first nation here "Zion-Valor", which might not sound THAT bad at first.....but then there's the fact that this nation wasn't even in the Levant during the RP I made it for, the land where the name "Zion" originated. It was basically a dollar store Russia. In the social media platform that I and some other fellas came from, we now refer to this nation as "Tvembov" thanks to a recommendation I made.

I was too nice to the other users.
Dowaesk is a nation set in the year 2041 in the Indian Ocean. An alternative future where Laccadives, Suvadives and Chagos are independent. And these 3 countries along with the Maldives join together to form Dowaesk. Much like how the UK is made up. Or the US

-Environmentalist
-Pro-Palestine
-Anti-Kemalist
-Warning: I tend to talk about Maldives a little too much.

I had no clue what this game was, thought it was some nation generator and because I was tired/thought I could change my name, I chose this name and I'm stuck with it.

My First Nation name was a frustrated like 6th attempt at one, and I this ended up with Annihilators of Chan Island. Not the annihilators, no that would have been too sensible. And of Chan island, I preceded to make found until like 3 years later.

Just embarrassing really. But hey, now I have 2 legendary cards so I suppose it paid off haha.

Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Forgive me NS players, for I have sinned in the past, by committing multiple sins of cringe, when I was young.

>I have used NS stats when judging nations on Forum 7, not caring if they used them or not.
>I have also posted lots of one liners, with not so much efforts.
>Nation wasn't exactly interesting, just some boring liberalism thingy.
>There were also inconsistencies in lore.
>RP posts were lower quality.
>And it was like without flaws.

I have confessed and I want to repent and seek redemption and forgiviness.

I did a lot of cringy stuff on this site back in my rookie days, but probably the most cringiest thing I did was submitting a god-awful idea to the technical section of N&B.

I posted waaaaaay too many times in a row in F7...and I had my characters do a bunch of crazy stuff before I solidified their personalities that I definitively disown. Most of the funni stuff I did in F7 last year is not canon, because, while I do still have elements of a meme nation in WF, a lot of it has gotten more serious and realistic. Let's just say that, while I still shitpost, I've worked to put more effort into my posts most of the time.

I'm still proud of the meme thread, though.

Guilty for being part of alliances but idk, I like having people to talk too. Mostly i'm just an observer in all of them apart from two, which includes one i made myself.

Its hard to find anything on International Incidents that interests me, its all civil wars. :unsure:

A traumatized, but recovering, MT-PMT constitutional monarchy consisting of a personal union of Prussia and Poland. A land of rampant gun ownership, Cold-war equipment, militias with enough heavy weapons to turn an armored division into a badly-shaken battalion of light infantry, and terrified American troops and airmen counting down the days until they rotate back home.
