[Missing quote/tag] Dossier page

Good day, everyone.

https://www.nationstates.net/page=dossier
"Add <region>

There's no closing quotation mark, and the less than and greater than symbols look like a chunk of html came out.
I don't remember this being the case, can I blame it on the server having moved to https? :lol2:

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the server being coercively moved to https.

As an election looms, a controversy arose

Why is there both Present Simple and Past Simple in a set of logically connected clauses? And I'd use a Continuous for the first one.

Issue #539

The issue:
Robotics giant Robot4U Inc.

Option 2:
CEO of Robot4U Inc,

The latter lacks a dot after "Inc"?

Option 4:
if you want to be strong and sharp like my generation you young'uns need to
I think there should be a comma after "generation".

Option 3: We could do with rearranging the number of seats each constituency get "gets"? Option 4: hear hear I'd have a hyphen between those two. splendid in fact. But, election season is nearing I'd have a comma before "in fact" and remove the one before "election".

Shouldn't "Lèse Majesté" from the issue's title have a hyphen in it?

Option 3:

There should be a comma before "as", and "track" was meant to be plural, I suppose.

I know what a tautology is, thanks. Clearly the only thing I didn't know was "supercentenarian," so thanks (sincere this time) for defining that. In this context, the repetition may be intended to emphasize just how spectacularly elderly the guy is; though if they changed it in the way yo...

Isn't this statement tautological? Tautological would be something like "centadecarian" or "centadecanarian." "Supercentenarian" just means "over 100." "Supercentenarian" means over 110 years old. And if the age is clarified in the next substatement...

You don't just get protein or iron in red meat and if we could make this clearer to everyone with a nationwide 'Getting to Terms with Vegetarianism' programme so the populace learns how to eat healthily we would see a difference. I think there should be a comma before "and if we could" an...

Hello everyone. The new features presented by the recent update seem to have slightly broken the Dark Century Theme, which, as far as I'm concerened, has been in need of an overhaul for a very long time. 1) The login button is almost invisible now. 2) Images on issue pages stand out too much, being ...
