[Question/Suggestion] Concerning Gameside Factbook

Postby Anagonia » Sat Jul 31, 2021 6:09 pm

Hello,

I was curious if there was any movement within the staff to increase the factbook page limit on our gameside nation pages from 25 to something else. If there is something in the works, could you possibly elaborate in whatever capacity what interest and changes may take place? If there is no movement or interest to make changes, I have a suggestion.

My suggestion is to implement a system similar to the no-ads. Add a donate function to increase the factbook limit corresponding to the amount of monetary donations given, just like the remove ad donations or for telegrams. Unless increasing the page limit for gameside factbooks will not cause any issues by itself, I suggest this as an alternative to promote further donations and funds for server costs.

I find it much easier to avoid using the forum for my factbook and more neat to use gameside for this. I am eager to hear any news on this information and if my suggestion holds any merit.

Thank you,
Anagonia

To the best of my knowledge, while there is a limit on factbooks, you may have unlimited dispatches. Would that help you? /notamod

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!

It's a okay workaround, but I've been so concentrated on the factbook system and getting things slowly organized that I figured utilizing it would be more effective.

With all due respect, on how many bottles of vodka were you when you wrote that part?
That's the most disgusting thing I've EVER heard in the year and a half I've been in this very game. We already have P2W games, P2W servers...

The only thing that's gonna do is make NS P2W. And you know what happens when something is P2W? Fellow decent people at r/AntiP2W DESTROY THE FUCKING PLACE.

Oh, and let's not forget about the people that'll leave because it used to be a decent game until people made us pay for factbooks.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

- It's not really possible to make NS P2W since NS has no way to "win".
- There are already features that are increased by paying RL money -- stamps, plus all the various site supporter perks (larger TG inbox, trading card deck capacity, etc.).

One alternative to needing more factbooks, or using dispatches instead, is to put everything into a "CLOSED" thread in the F&NI forum,and then use a factbook just to index this with links to the individual posts.

I appreciate the replied and I assure you I was not drunk when I wrote that part. It was a suggestion to subsidize further the costs of the server hosting or whatever they need it for. My goal was to offer a suggestion to avoid using the forums ever again, because it feels antiquated to do so.
