WHAT IS THIS?
Welcome to the NationStates Roleplay Symposium 2017!
Originally conceived the better part of a year ago only to be shelved due to time constraints, this project was re-invigorated out of a desire to provide a series of workshops on the recently-established NS Mentor Program Discord; this otherwise simple idea grew into a collaborative effort between numerous roleplayers - to include volunteers within the Mentor Program and without - from across the NationStates roleplaying community in order to foster friendship, interest, and a greater understanding between the, at times, disparate sections of this community.
To that end, the NationStates Mentor Program (with assistance and collaboration from others) wishes to invite any and all roleplayers and players otherwise interested in the roleplay community to partake of a week-long symposium. This symposium will be covering a wide range of topics pertaining to roleplaying on the NationStates forums, set to officially begin on Saturday, July 8th, and run through Friday, July 14th, on this offsite forum (where several Mentor-collaborative guides will receive their first public debut), the NationStates thread, and the NS Mentor Program Discord. Through each, players from across NationStates will be encouraged to network, collaborate, foster friendship, and exchange their experiences, all the while being audience and participants to a range of lectures, workshops, and panels covering topics ranging from worldbuilding to thread formatting.
There are several ways to navigate the Symposium forum. You may click on the banner to return to the forum listing, or you may use the buttons on the left to access NationStates or the Discord server, search for topics, find members, edit your profile, bookmark things, or check your messages. In addition, the very bottom of the forum contains hit buttons to go to the top or bottom of each page, a quick-access button to look for new threads or posts, and a shoutbox.
Your profile feature allows you to edit your personal content. Please do not post images in your signatures. Treat them as you would your signature on NS - 8 line maximum. Thanks.
This is where lectures and workshops will take place. You will also find guides here. The Hall is broken down into several forums.
- NationStates & International Incidents: covering all things nation-roleplay related.
- Fifth Dimension: Portal to the Multiverse: covering all things non-nation related.
- NS Sports: for your nation sports needs.
- Roleplay Region & Organization Booths: looking for a RP region? Want to find an organization on NS that covers your interests? Please stop by the booths. If you would like to place a booth, please refer to the criteria found here.
- General Roleplay Discussion: This is not NSG. Symposium participants are encouraged to open up discussion threads about roleplaying, gaming, or other related topics. Threads that derail into political topics risk being locked.
- Symposium F7 Area: A place for forum games. Chat Location Threads/Chill Threads are not permitted here.
BUGS AND ISSUES
- Report Bugs and Glitches: Glitches happen. We want to know about them. You may also ask technical questions here. Please keep in mind that, at this time, we do not provide a 'dark' theme.
- Report Issues: This functions somewhat like a board moderation forum. Bear in mind that our 'mods' are not NationStates Moderators.
