new to this
hello, been told about this un thing and can someone explains how it works, as have been taught some stuff about this from me' ladeee but still a little clueless.
1st question: does the U have a really nice building in NY, and a crappy 1 in Geneva, like the real UN.
Best UN quote by the way from Principal Skinner: Do you want to be like the real UN, or do you just want to squabble and waste time?
Unless you want to be slapped I wouldn't call her a ladee.
Out of Char:
Before the mods shoot this topic the guide to the UN building can be found here (http://ns.goobergunch.net/wiki/index.php/UN_Building)
When in character, rl references are right out.
No one gives a damn about the real UN. Except the newbies protesting the NSUN doesn't do what the RL UN does.
I don't care if you think the rules are too long. They're there for a reason.
Pick an ambassador or representative to rp with. Most UN interaction is in character.
Don't just jump in. Read what other people write - it's usually a good indication of what's going on. Plus most things happening in the UN are proposal topics. So try II.

1st question: does the U have a really nice building in NY, and a crappy 1 in Geneva, like the real UN.Eh, a little from Column A, a little from Column B: we do have a really nice building, but it's really crappy. (See the link so helpfully provided by the Gaffans.) Most 'round these parts will probably tell you they've never heard of New York or Geneva. No one knows where the UN Headquarters are located, but my money's on Sovereign UN Territory (ns.goobergunch.net/wiki/index.php/Sovereign_UN_Territory) taking its orders from Ardchoille. Don't ask me why, because if I said so, I'd only be accused of peddling conspiracy theories.
Everytime someone uses a gun smilie a gnome dies.Careful there; that sounds like an incentive to use more gun smilies.
... taking its orders from Ardchoille. Don't ask me why, because if I said so, I'd only be accused of peddling conspiracy theories.
IC: This is part of the current Kennyite smear campaign. Unable to best the noble and intelligent Ardchoilleans by more direct means, they have resorted to the tactics of the gutter press. The recent unconscionable attack on the integrity of our (wrongfully) President for Life, suggesting that she influences her colleagues by clever spellwork ... (etc, etc -- take in standard rant here).
-- Bast, Feline Advisor to the Presidency.
IC2: Besides, everybody knows that the International Conspiracy is still run by the Bigtopians. They're Strldbugs, perhaps now wizened, possibly insane, but near-immortal.
OOC: UN delegates often tend to go on a bit in-character, TheCraigzone. But you don't have to; OOC is more than welcome, if it's pertinent and sensible. I hope your, uh, female colleague, has directed you to the stickies at the top of this forum. There you'll find really useful details on how to write proposals.
But the structure of the UN building itself is something you pick up as you go along. Sometimes literally -- there was that stretch of dodgy plastering ... (see how it happens? Anyway, welcome to the UN).
First of all, welcome to the UN.
Please keep in mind something that some of us old timers tend to forget: we were all new at this once. Our suggestion would be to visit the Forum a few times and read a bunch of stuff to see how things work. Then come on in and participate as much as you want to.
And feel free to drop by our delegation's offices for a kielbasa sandwich or two when you're hungry. Go down to the seventh basement, turn right as you get off the elevator, and look for the "Boiler Room" sign.

Punctuation and grammar nazis will hold your children hostage unless you use correct spelling, capital letters and full stops.

You make it up, but there is also a list (http://forums.jolt.co.uk/showthread.php?t=507615). Use it wisely.

lol yhx 4 ur advicePunctuation and grammar nazis will hold your children hostage unless you use correct spelling, capital letters and full stops.Just thought I'd toss this out there to add to Gaffa's point: while it's hard enough for someone like me (a native English speaker) to read that spew, it's almost totally impossible for a non-native speaker to translate that.
I wouldn't bother replying anymore...
English translation of a conversation:
<insert references to burning and a request for context>
"I dont read that thread anymore, I'm not going to check it everyday and I can't tell if there's been replies. Complete waste of time."
"The bold text on the index is generally a good hint. And it's discurteous."
"Too much effort."
"How?" <explanation> "Email spam!"
I would like it formally noted I have zero influence over the person behind 'TCZ' and do not care if he is warned, banned or lambasted by other players. Thank you.

Right then. I'll just shut the lights off on my way out.
