Nation w/Endorsements from Other Regions

Hey, there seems to be an odd problem with the nation "Trabia Mon". His endorsement count in 4, but 3 of them are not from this region. The first time I tried to find out where they are from, I somehow ended up in one of my other accounts.

I endorsed Trabia Mon that, giving the nation 4. I clicked on the other 3, and all of them brought me to my nation page. This seems to be a bug. I don't know where the other nations are from (I'm guessing Trabia Mon's last region) but they shouldn't be showing up in the region I am in.

We are in the region of Sicily.

I don't think Trabia Mon knows that he has endorsements from another region.

Sometimes, UN endorsements are carried over from the previous region. Just wait for the update to kick through, and they should disappear.

They're not nations from another region, they're dead nations. Sometimes when a nation dies and is UN (I believe these are the conditions), and is subsequently revived and rejoins the UN, on the first day they will have all their previous endorsements. But in the update last night, he lost all those endorsements.

Okay, you are correct. His endorsement count did return to normal.

I guess I learned something new about the game. Why aren't those erased?

Because they don't need to be and it'd be a pain in the ass to make it happen. Their endorsements won't affect anything until the region updates, and the update will clean out the bogus endorsements. To do otherwise would probably require rolling updates (perhaps triggered in a given region when one of its members accepts UN membership) that would be a huge resource hog and drag the game to a crawl. Not to mention the chance of it introducing bugs like the population bug.

So, basically, "fixing" it is more work than its worth, and it's not really broken anyway.
