Great Nations of all types and all regions, why must we all suffer underneath the Telegram, surely our combined technology's could come up with something better then the simple telegram? Undeniably we could have something even slightly more advanced even something simple as the Telephone, would be a great improvement over the basic technology of a Telegram. so i petition the nations of the world to come and post on this subject to show your support of this idea. when the I have received 50 nations support i shall propose this to the almighty admin.
Good day and Good luck

I agree, the telegram is humble but unreliable, the methods of communication in our world should be pre-historic, VIVA LA COMMUNICATION!!

The Technical forum is always looking for ways to improve - I'd try there for a more "interested" crowd, but I have to warn you, most of us are fairly attached to our telegram box! You'd have to pry it from my leader's cold dead hands in fact. :)

I hate the fact that there is no place to view sent messages.

Yeah I have to admit, I'd love to have a sent box.

1) Open Microsoft Word or comparable program.
2) Type message you intend to telegram.
3) Copy and Paste into the send telegram box
4) Click Send.
5) Save your Word Fire for future reference.

Has worked for me just fine.

It is of course perfectly possible to do an extraordinary number of things in NS by hand, if you are dedicated enough. But that doesn't help us attract or retain players who aren't quite so compulsive.

Storage is the problem with this idea.

Very fair point. We do not want to fill the servers up with recruitment messages and the like.Any chance of some text suggesting we store the ones we want ourselves in the telegram window? Sure not everyone is compulsive, but if they read it and the ts important maybe that will help?
