This is one of the few regions which works if its members die out.
I've certainly been something of an NS-addict. People have been unkind here after something of a "basic coup (in the words of another onlooker)", and honestly its hurt; whats funny is I know some of them had lied (either to me or to someone else), but I never said anything with part of it because there just isn't energy (and it isn't a crisis situation). It changed my perspective on people to an extent, even. That happened at the height of my time here, and now I'm trying to not let a video game bother me.
Our executives decided to give us a break for Christmas, but we are back in business . . . at least for now!
I would like wish all of our customers a belated Happy New Year! And with the new year, comes the new decade and a very important question.
So come sip on some complimentary Covfefe as we look at a defining feature of the past decade!

'Ello yet again. Things are going well. Extremely stressful in real life, but good. I have faith. NS can be fun, and will advance, and I can live a live besides it.
Totally not posting because this nation was going to CTE.

I have nations that I forget about. It is always good to keep them from ceasing to exist if possible, because a nation loses much when it must start over again.
Pictou and Mehlandis
What does it lose? Flags and region, you mean? I try and be smart with my massive commitments across NS that way by using a few nations, and moving between regions.

This might sound stupid, but any tips to minimize NS stress?
I let most of my nations cease to exist, then just focused on all of the current COVID-19 news on the Web to avoid spending too much time on NationStates. Sadly, I now stress over the virus, so that strategy may not be the best to reduce overall stress levels.
It's best not to watch too much news.
I suppose so. Thank you for asking, my friend. I have been having everything delivered to my door while I shelter-in-place, but I think that I may start going to the grocery store instead of having everything delivered. I realize that decision greatly increases my chance of becoming infected, but it is not healthy to always cower inside like a craven.
How are you?
I am coping, but being careful. I live in a rural place and delivery is not always possible. The nearest food shop is a 1 km walk through fields. Great to hear from you.

Come try your luck! Our slot machine has 3 wheels, each with red (🍉🍒🍓), yellow (🍋🍌🍍), green(🍈🍏🍐) & purple (🍇🍑🍆) symbols. Stake is 10 chips. 3 fruits the same colour wins 30 chips. All 3 fruits different colours wins 10 chips. The 1st wheel stops on 🍍. There's a 50% chance that pulling the lever stops the 2nd wheel exactly where you want it. The 3rd wheel will stop automatically. Where do you try to stop the 2nd wheel?
"113 minutes ago: Mehlandis ceased to exist."
In terms of this region, is that success?
Thank you, Oh Great Founder! You stay safe too!
In the immortal words of John Donne:
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
Personally, I don't enjoy seeing any player cease to exist.
Not finding a way to return? You are missed Unindicted Conspirator. Too much conspiring, so finally indicted?
Your first addiction?
Unfortunately I'm clean. Consequently, I'm not active anymore...
Very earlier after founding the region, I tried to talk smart on the RMB. I don't really think it is helpful but if you are bored look through it.
The game has means to try banning a player, right? To a certain extent. Not only deleting his/her nations. I don't know if it is such a case(?).
How are you, Pictou? Has anything changed between you and NS over the last years?
Perhaps he has returned. And why has no one taken the time to replace his regional welcome telegram?
Welcome, you new nation!
I wasn't aware that we ever had one. : )
Also not that it disappears with a ceased nation.
