Vacation mode

04-11-2003, 11:14
Vacation mode doesn't seem to work for me. I turned on vacation mode, pressed "save settings" but I keep getting new issues, while I don't really have time for this, this month. What is wrong/what can be done?

Change 'Issues Received' to 'None'.

Ah, ok. Thanks. Sounds logical :)

May be you could that add in the FAQ, too, because it now reads:
In your nation's Settings, check the box marked "Vacation Mode" and click "Update Settings". This will stop your nation from receiving new issues and grant it a longer grace period before it gets deleted for inactivity: 60 days.

Was this changed? I was convinced nations in vacation mode didn't receive issues, and I'm surprised you did.

I was wondering something about vacation mode. Does your population still increases. [sic]

Until today, Vacation mode only stopped your nation from being purged so quickly (60 inactive days instead of 28 ), but this was unintentional -- I've now fixed it so that Vacation-mode nations don't get issues.

You also get a warning on your Issues page if you've got Vacation mode turned on.

Popuations do continue to increase, yes, and if the nation is a UN member it is affected by passed UN resolutions.

Dammit, that was glitch? I liked having all my nations on vacation mode, just in case... Oh well, guess I'll have to tinker with the settings.
