NationStates 1.10: Regional Mods!

by SalusaSecondus

NationStates has hit version 1.10! We've introduced some new features to the game which should hopefully improve the quality of everyone's playing experience. What are these features? Well:

Specially selected region members will have the power to personally tag and warn problem nations without the need for moderator intervention. This means that the general management of the game is more under the control of the players. Not only that but it will ease the workload for the mods. These region members will be called Regional Moderators and will get a special badge on their nations.
Well, there is no '2', really, but all regional mods will be invited to join the secret IRC channel where we discuss moderation. No-one else can join though, so if you have anything you want us to hear about you should ask your local reg mod.
The intention of this change is to bring moderation closer to the players and to experiment with grass-roots moderation. With over 90,000 accounts, this should help to keep the game managable.

I'm slightly confused. Shouldn't the NEWS page be changed, if there are no RM's present? Because with a news like that (and without saying anywhere in there that it was an April Fool's) I would suspect it to be real. And while it's not (to my knowledge), maybe you can edit that piece of the NEWS?

I think the date is obvious enough.
