    The purpose of this thread is to give IOT posters a place to post and carry on conversations related to IOT gaming, but not specific to a game. It is designed to keep non game related posts out of game threads and is similar to the "While We Wait" series of threads in NESing.

    Please post responsibly; if you notice things getting out of hand, you may report the post in question.

    The "Argentina" threads should be a friendly place to discuss topics that concern IOT things, but that would not fit into another thread. If you feel the need to spam/post off topic,etc. we have an entire subforum provided for just such posting. Use it. Spamming this thread, or for that matter other IOT threads, will be dealt with.

    This thread is NOT a place to attack others, flame, spam, or discuss things that would be better suited for the OT forum. The following kinds of topics should not be discussed here:

    Politics
    Religion
    Abortion
    Israel/Palestinian relations
    Obama
    Fox News

    You get the idea.

    Where is Argentina?

    We do have an Argentina successor, and although the conversation their hasn't been too fruitful maybe a merger is in order.

    So Birdy... I suggest when the great three (NN, Thor and TK) make their combined work you might be intrested in joining their combined work. :)

    One day, in the Summer perhapes, I wish to create a IOT in Beyond the Lampshade so my fellow BTLees will enjoy the geopolitical fun. You know I remember playing a NationStates RP... I played both my countries, a democratic socialists federation known as the Collective Republic of Moddier (I think that or was it Federal Republic of Moddier?) and a dictatorship known as the Protectorate of the Gethic Hand. It was not rule set: there was no rules, save for common note and storyline. Secret messages were in the open and it was more a storyline than a game. The memories of this game is what be my motivation when it comes to bring IOT into BTL. I attempted with Beyond the Imperium but it never got off due to timing problems (university essays and exams are primal task in life at the moment) but in time I will create a game I hope. Then I will invite you all to BTL to play it with me and my comrades.

    I am a proud sponsor of Clang so you might rethink your challenge.

    Indeed, good one.

    I think we need a Don't Cry for me Argentina IOT now.
    Or just an ArgentinaIOT It would be like AAIOT but without an A :D

    Indeed, it could be interesting. I'll still do a JIOT first. If I ever do an IOT

    I like how the "Previous Argentina Threads" imply this will not be the last.

    I would like to discuss how the DIRTY COMMIES keep on trying to remove Christianity from our schools, meaning schools teach how great abortions are and how the ""Palestinians" Don't deserved to be bombed into the ground" . This is obviously Obama's fault, and our only hope is fox news enlightening the people of the world.

    tl;dr
