Greetings, Since it will not be possible to verify that these programs are indeed 'harmless', posting links to executables with the message 'hey people, go ahead and run this on your computer' has a few effects: 1. It trains people to erroneously think it's OK to execute random programs found on the...

The things you mention are created by players and are not part of the game itself. As such, the game cannot create a ranking as you suggest. If it has value to exist, best is for players to create such a ranking themselves.

For us to investigate this in more detail, please provide the exact times of these trades. Since you know which nations you were transferring from, you should be able to look that up in the trades history of those nations.

A major part of the issues game is figuring out what each option does and contemplating what they might do. Your suggestion would remove that, allowing players to blindly follow whatever option the system says one should choose. That's just one or two steps away from just setting the nation stats to...

Greetings, Players added those percentages to get the text in between show up as a nation link in the Happenings. This has been prevented since then by making the use of special characters a bit more strict. As a result new occurrences cannot be added in any nation field, resulting in the error you ...

Not sure what the problem is here...

The game has ads, which pay to keep the servers running. Site supporter removes those, but you do not have that.
So, expect ads. You then set in your browser to have the ads not displayed, and so they don't display.

Interesting plot twist. So let's add another plot twist: In light of giving credit where credit is due, and fixing this oversight properly: 1. The S2 card has the badge added to it now as well. 2. The card rarity has been upgraded to Ultra Rare. Card: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/card=123...

Boekwinkels worded weer helemaal de mode. Retro commercie. Maar dan als afhaalpunt waar je dan ter plekke ook nog iets extra's kunt kopen terwijl je je eerder online bestelde spullen af komt halen. Zijn bezorgers ook meteen de klos.

Thank you for alerting me when you started a new mass-transfer, allowing me to do some 'live' analysis.
The root cause is now known, we have an ugly SQL query which isn't easy to optimize.

Admins are discussing what the best way forward is to resolve this issue.
