A Suggestion For Improvement

Publically Flogged

When we players use Getting Help Page to submit a report we can "Attach information from region", whether it's Regional Happenings or Regional Messageboard. My suggestion is that players could attach regional World Factbook Entries too, to create an undeniable evidence of, for instance, WFE flaming before the founder or the delegate changes the WFE to something else, possibly less deteorating language before a GHP request by a player has been viewed by the Mods.

A classical but ever so narrow-mindedly thought example would be fascists and communists flaming each other in WFEs. Another example could be that when invaders state in the WFE something like "natives endorse [the name of the externally-elected invader delegate] in 24 hours or you will be kicked from the region" which is not allowed, if I recall correctly.

This improvement would require writing new code and the suggestion would increase the workload of the Mods, and it might be more trouble than it's worth as - to my knowledge, correct me if I'm wrong - not too many players resort to use the WFE the way it would be in violation of allowed content (FAQ: What can't I post? Any content that is:....).

It probably wasn't included originally as WFE's change less frequently than the other slots. The inclusion was originally done becuase unless the task was viewed within minutes, a feeder region would have its message board cleared by other ads.

Of course, I'm not the one who would be adding this, but I don't think it's terribly likely.
