We agree, getting commended for making flags is some serious bullshit. That's why Koth repealed it. Good to know you agree with us. :) No, I was commended, because I, a no-one with zero experience in graphic design, revamped (or at least tried to) and optimized all the images the NationStates/MaxBa...

Repeal "Commend Tiago Silva" was passed 11,386 votes to 1,641. Thank you everyone who supported me, I'm very happy I made a dynamic entry onto the WA scene :) I seriously hope you are proud of yourself. I'm pretty sure he/she is. The same rationale stated in the repeal can be applied to i...

Small question: are you planning on dropping RC4 cipher-suites?

I support the idea of two custom fields (singular and plural forms) for currency.
There's no need for the (server) overhead of a pluralization tool when it clearly doesn't work for all cases.

He converted the default flags on the site from ass tier JPEGs to better quality PNGs. Apparently people think this act alone is commend worthy. Well... bullshit. I'm going to explain exactly what I did (again, since this was posted in 2011). If only what was done was just "converting JPEG to ...

As a dial-up/mobile user... It took me 2 minutes to load that page.

I voted against it, because now I have an extra image to load in my nation's page. Ms. Harper is neutral with the resolution concerned, but feels that the rationale for the resolution is a bit too small for consideration. And too small it is. Flags were not the only thing I've tried to optimized in ...

I'm Portuguese. Just made those out of courtesy for my next door neighbors.

Your government did that (PDF link). But I'll telegram you later a link to a silky flag with your colors.

Good evening everyone. It's nice to see that you are all enjoying the new flags. The flag bundle that I provided (supposedly) has: ⋅ Every current country (tried to dodge all the states with controversy / limited recognition, with the exception of Kosovo... because I liked the flag) ⋅...

Also the resolution is just factually wrong, Tiago had the flags made for another project (I think), so he didn't bravely volunteered to recast them --at least not for our sake-- he just generously donated them to us. The flags were a "Duke Nukem Forever"-like work specially made for Nati...

Which ordered list are you referring to? The ordered list code provided in the quick button: [list=][/list] Violet, I have been making a collection of PNG flags with exactly 107px width. They're taken from vectorial sources and highly compressed. Their byte-count is much lower than the current JPEG...

dial up needs to be banned, it slows down the whole network I don't think you know how "the whole network" works. South Korea successfully eliminated dial up, they enjoy connection speeds of about 61mb/s You can eliminate what ever you want and spread fiber optical lines and wireless tech...

Lossless optimization would be nice

I access NationStates via dial-up and normally with a text-browser (with image support in X), so I'm usually immune to almost anything you can throw at me. The only thing that matters right now is the byte-count. ⋅ PNG optipng -preserve -zc1-9 -zm1-9 -zs0-3 -f0-5 *.png OptiPNG 0.6.4: Advan...
