I just subsidized child labor in my most recent issue. Even for this game, that felt particularly cruel.
How does this game calculate influence? This is the one ranking that always leaves me bewildered. I would have thought that both The Bruce and Hydroponic Nation would be in the top 3.
Influence calculators skewed reality for older pre-2006 regions. In February 2006, I resigned as delegate to allow elections to take place, after being in the position since December 2002.
The Influence System was introduced in September 2006, with everyone starting from scratch irregardless of how much influence they would have already accumulated over the years (because there was previously no system around to properly track it). At that point I started as a regular minnow and was no longer in the UN/WA.
The three nations ahead of our longest serving delegate, Hydroponic Nation, have long held numerous WA endorsements, prior to Hydroponic Nation becoming the delegate.
For some of the less active nations, there is another factor to consider. You have to log in at least once a week to accumulate influence in a region. Otherwise, you're only accumulating influence for the day you logged, plus an undisclosed time afterwards (I'm guessing 6 days), before you stop accumulating influence again.
if your talking about your nation influence, its also a matter of how long you been a member of the same region, once you move even if for role playing(spy) purposes, your influence will drop to mini, there should be an influence topic in the forum, with all the levels listed
There was a thread in the Wysterian forum, but it was destroyed by the Invisionfree Server 1 crash of 2006 that destroyed many, many threads around that time. Priority for thread reconstruction, in the aftermath of that mess, was on role-playing and diplomatic threads.
Later, there was a post made by me, about the goings on in the Neutral Territory game summit, that shows a really good poster about NationStates influence, created by Emperor Maggaba.
Ambassador Emeritus, the honorable Willy, attributes much of the negotiating strength in Outer Micronesia to his calm, unflappable disposition (after decades of working in his family's sakau production facility) and luxuriant, magnificent, snow white, waist length beard. He also can deliver pinpoint accuracy with his yam hurling if negotiating partners get too rambunctious... The Gentle Peoples, of course, consider Ambassador Willy a national treasure.
The Grotesque Playground of Mackintosh is right, you can send your cats their while Diplomats are visiting Sanhedrin for events.
or you can send a car of much higher standard.....we have no dispute over Tigers(not puma's - those are not to be trusted).
As to the influence issue, I can stated that when our cabinet decided to move our nation from our first region(absolution) after 2.5 years there , our influence dropped from lvl4 to mini.
it should also be stated that regional influence can also be dropped if 10-20% of nations who been the bone structure of the region for many years, suddenly leave all together.
There is also a logical reason for that: Think about Countries where The Brain (aka people in Hi-tech/Sci etc) leaves and immigrate to other countries where they pay bigger salaries.
The Mother country will suffer greatly.
Small note :
Think what will happen if
Ambassador Willy from The Gentle Tropical Peoples of Outter Micronesia will suddenly vanish ?
Wouldn't That Influence his nation ?
Wouldn't it bring great suffering
.....After All ..........he is .....as stated ...... A National Treasure
