What is the Regional Message Board? The regional message board (RMB for short) is the space within the Rejected Realms (TRR for Short) that players and nations can post messages, hold conversations, debates, all sorts! It is free for any member of the region, or members of embassy regions to post on, so long as they stay within the rules.
One notable thing of the typical discussion on the RMB, is that it is within the rules. Despite TRR being a region where you can't be ejected, there are still rules that you must follow to partake on the RMB, and in the region, in good faith.
The Rules The Rules, the cornerstone of RMB etiquette. They are:
Stay within NationStates rules. Wherever you are, the rules of the site still apply, so I'd recommend getting familiar with them, and making sure you are within them. You may not be able to be ejected from this region, but NS Moderators can still punish you for breaking site rules! The site rules are located here. These apply wherever you are in NationStates, so following them is a must.
Do not call for the overthrow of the regional government. The regional government is democratically elected, and they are limited on what they can do by the constitution, which is located here. Every important position in TRR is democratically elected, so the best way to ensure you have a say in the government is to apply for citizenship, and partake in elections.
Don't Multi Post Multi-Posting is when you post multiple posts on the RMB in a row, without someone having said something in between. Double posts within 30 minutes of a previous post are suppresable - If you have more to say, use the edit button! Posting more than twice in a row is still suppressable regardless of the amount time passed. Spammy double posts (such as unnecessary single word posts) will be suppressed regardless of the amount time passed. The Edit button is free to use and helps to keep the RMB clean and tidy, please do use it instead of posting multiple times in a row. First time offenders will be warned, not suppressed, but repeat offenders will be suppressed if they break the Multi-Posting rules.
Think before you advertise Don't recruit by posting recruitment messages on the RMB, it may be within NS Rules but we don't allow it. However, advertising polls is fine.
Don't quote suppressed messages They've been suppressed for a reason, and you're likely to be suppressed to if you quote them. However, quoting a person and rewriting their message to be a slight variation on "snip" is acceptable, but we don't recommend you engage suppressed posts at all.
Be Respectful While debates are allowed, arguments and full blown flaming are not and can, on occasion, enter the realm of NS rules. Be respectful of others with alternative views, have debates, but not arguments. Paired with this, do not complain about your previous region, the reason they ejected you, or your past and how you ended up here. Most nations here don't care about your past drama, and TRR is a place to start new, a fresh start, and not be plagued by issues of the past.
Stop when asked If a regional officer of the region with communications perms asks you to stop, or an NS Moderator does the same, stop.
If you break any of these rules, you are liable to be suppressed, but it's relatively easy to stay within them, as they're aren't hard to follow!
While not generally too harmful, one word messages aren't great as they clog up the RMB, interrupt and disrupt conversations, and entice others to follow in their footsteps and also post one word messages, so don't do it. It doesn't make the RMB interesting, it could discourage members from making posts and prevent others from having an actually decent debate.
Trolling and spamming comes into the jurisdiction of NS rules, so don't do it. Posting hateful comments, spamming messages, quoting and vastly changing someone's message (beside deleting it in its entirety) is not acceptable at all.
Alongside this, please do not engage trolls or spammers on the RMB, leave them alone to avoid being caught in the crossfire, if you quote or engage them there is an increased chance that you could get punished for quoting, encouraging or just speaking to them.
Interesting how the Rejected Realms RMB has... transformed into this debate platform recently. I'm quite sure I could post homework questions here and I'd get lots of answers. Interesting this place. When I first came I thought it would be a...cesspool, or at least a bigger one. It's just a normal community... intersting indeed. We are still weird though :P
Can you sew, embroider, crochet, knit, cook? Have you ever tried it? And why would women do that? It's more expensive to make it yourself and takes way longer than just buy it in the store. The only reason to do these things oneself is, a, environmental awareness if one repairs torn/ ripped clothes. b, you like to tinker with needles and thread.
I like mending things, be it plumbing, clothes, cars, toys. I don't mess with electricity, I know my limits. But I do know how to solder, follow a flow chart etc. Yes am knitting dresses at the moment and crocheting little silly things like ear protection (face mask) and towel loops. I like climbing, whiskey, comics, books, horse riding, cooking. So you tell me, am I a man? Or am I a woman?
Hurray! Spelt bacon pancakes for breakfast! And, no these aren't the cakes you are looking for mentioned in earlier post.

Hi! i know that its a strange question, but...can someone create a nation for me and send a telegram with the password? idk why but game isnt allowing me create a second nation, but i need it! if someone can, thank you! (the type of country is indifferent, but please dont made it inoffensive centrist democracy or pshicotic dictatorship).
Regarding Sharing Accounts What is "sharing accounts"? As far as moderation is concerned, a nation account is shared if more than one person has accessed it. Whether a nation is being used by a group of players, or a nation is given permanently from Player A to Player B, both instances are shared.
Is sharing nations among multiple players allowed? It is allowed, but moderation's stance on the act is to avoid it as an unnecessary risk. There are no "safe" ways to share a nation, only ways that are "slightly less unsafe."
What are the risks? Personally Identifying Info - If you do not scrub your PII from the nation before handing it off, the recipient may be able to use that very same tool to see your personally identifying information, including your IP and email address! Anyone with access to that nation (and has that nation's password) can access the PII report! NOTE: Performing a PII scrub prior to transfer of a nation DOES NOT REMOVE ANY OF THE OTHER RISKS! WA warnings - If you're sharing around a WA member nation while one or more people with access to it also maintain WA accounts, you run a greater risk of getting caught on the WA cheatscanner. Warning history - If you share a nation that has a moderation warning history, you risk having that history associated with you. Bans/DEATs/DOSes - Sharing nations around muddies the moderation trail and increases the risk of one or more players being at risk for moderation enforcement they didn't actually earn. Although moderation will do what we can to avoid this confusion, if players share nations around enough, it truly becomes almost impossible to definitively tell who has control of what. Nation theft - Fact is, the more people have access to a nation, the less secure it is. If one of the owners hijacks that shared account, there will be nothing moderation can do to help the others recover it. Outright malice - If one person with access to shared account goes on a rulebreaking rampage, everyone with access to that account risks having disciplinary actions levied against them, as the system will have trouble telling Player A from Player B when they both login to Nation X regularly. So why don't you ban it? Enforcing such a ban would be impractical at best. Hence it falls under the same general umbrella of "player responsibility" as things like your password security, caution about sharing computers or using publicly accessible ones, and so on. Players can share, and will share, and thus they accept the risks that go with it.
