Illustrated Guide to Recruiting [REF]

The following is an illustrated guide to recruiting. Please direct any questions to August.

Manual



1. Write a TG to "tag:template" and mark it as recruitment. The macro %NATION% displays the name of the recipient when they read it. Click Preview to review your text.

2. Send the TG. You will see this message.

3. Click "View Template." This allows you to see the TG, along with its delivery reports.

4. Go to this page (World Activity, sorted by Founding). Open each nation page in a new tab, starting with the most recently created nation. You may want to skip refounded nations. If you want to target ejected nations as well, go to the list of filters in the upper right hand corner and select "ejections."

5. Copy the TG ID code into each nation's TG box and send. You do not have to mark it as recruitment again.

API



1. Write a TG to "tag:api" and mark it as recruitment. The macro %NATION% displays the name of the recipient when they read it. Click Preview to review your text.

2. Send the TG. You will see this message.

3. Click "View Template." This allows you to see the TG, along with its delivery reports. Copy down the TG ID and the Secret Key.

4. You will need a TG script. Download one that works with your computer. There is a list of popular scripts here.

This is a screenshot from Agadar's Telegrammer, a commonly-used TG script.

5. You will also need a Client Key. Each region is limited to one Client Key, which must be manually requested from the mods. Ask your founder or delegate if they have one of these, or if they can request one for you.

6. Enter your Client Key, Secret Key, and TG ID into your TG script. If there is an option in your script to mark telegrams as recruitment, enable it. Make sure you are targeting the right set of nations. Most regions only target new nations, but some also send telegrams to refounded or ejected nations.

Stamps



1. Purchase stamps from the store, or have someone else gift you some. You cannot transfer stamps from one nation to another, but you can request that stamps be delivered to another nation when you purchase them.

2. Write a TG to "tag:new#" and mark it as recruitment. You may also choose to recruit refounded or ejected nations, in which case you would send the TG to "tag:ejected#" or "tag:refounded#". Click Preview to review your text.

3. This is not a requirement, but if you have a large number of stamps, it is a good idea to split up your recruiting campaigns into smaller batches. Once you send a stamp telegram, you cannot take it back, even if you discover a mistake. If you only send a thousand telegrams at a time instead of ten thousand all at once, you can avoid wasting your entire reserve of stamps in the event of an error.
