what were the name Changes

Postby Sheksozye » Fri Dec 03, 2021 2:31 pm

I heard from somewhere else on the forum that in the history of the site admin has only ever changed the names of 2 nations because of extreme circumstances and I was wondering what those names were that would warrant going into the code and changing them (from as far as I know that's how that works)

I've been on this site for several years, and don't recall this occurring. Is it possible that this is apocryphal?
"Hello, Masaki home. Oh, that sounds like if I were married to the family. How embarrassing. What do you think? Do you think it sounds that way?"

"I have been many things in my life, Mollari. I have been silly. I have been quiet when I should have spoken. I have been foolish. And I have wasted far too much time. But I am still Centauri. And I am not afraid."

It is true and is no longer done because it is a MAJOR pain to do. I haven't asked the technical types but it is my understanding that the nation name is the primary key across all the databases, so changing that requires a huge amount of work.

It was also done because the names were made before the terms of service came into place. (AFAIK)

We are not going to do it in the modern situation. If the nation name is against our rules, we delete. No renaming will be done.
1. Tech modling. No idea what it means, but it has a fancy colour.
8. Size matters. Bigger is forbidden and won't give the mods pleasure.
