Two problems with Orbital Armageddon

22-11-2003, 18:29
First of all, when it's at the beginning of the 3rd paragraph in the spotlight, the "b" in Billions isn't capitalized:

billions of dubloons are being blown on orbital weapons development, notable individuals are granted land and titles, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. etc, etc

Secondly, the region name has underscores in it in the options. I've never seen them before in any other issue, so it looks weird:

General Billy-Bob Hamilton says, "We should spend more. But not just on exploration. We should start developing Orbital Weapons! Space Marines! Armed Spacecraft! We would rule the_crimson_order, and look really cool doing it! Just divert some funding from environmental protection, and BAM! Sci-fi goodies!"

Has anybody else noticed this problem? Have they cared?

This is the kind of info that you should out in the "NationStates Issues Typos" sticky thread. If it isn't there already.

I thought about putting the problem there, but it seems to me more of a coding error than a spelling error for the underscore problem.

Yeah, your probably right about that, but they all get looked at by [violet], the admin/code monkey (I think they're the only person who can change issues after implementation). That's the person you'd need to talk to to get this changed, and they'll see it if you put it there.

Technically, because we (the mods) or [violet] need to type the relevant coding in to make the issue say things like "We will rule The Crimson Order" rather than "We will rule The_Crimson_Order", then it's a kind of typo on our part.

Also, I don't think capitalising billions is required in English. At least, not in the one I was taught. :roll:

Unless it's begining the sentance, which I think it might be in this case.

Ah, didn't notice that. :?

What is the actual effect on stats of building orbital weapons?
