In this case we have a bit of trouble in finding the explanation about why it appears that TEP and The Internationale, and only TEP and The Internationale, were affected by the intrusive adverts. A further check was made on regions with more than 250 nations, and none of them, other than the two regions named, had the scrolling ad problem.

Unfortunately, I have limited (time) resources at this time to dig deeper into the code to find exactly what is causing the problem, but something doesn't seem right.

I've been having some issues with the NS++ Chrome extension recently. I'll list them down below.

1. I cannot change my regional founder or delegate title, as it says I am not authorized to do so, even though I am the founder and I have had more than 3 days and 11 hours of executive power.

2. My NS++ settings wont open. I do not know the cause for this.

3. My recruitment campaigns wont work. For some reason, when i click on "Create Recruitment Campaign" it does nothing. The page doesnt reload, nor does it open a new tab.


I too am having this issue with recruitment campaigns as well, as is the officer I also assigned a recruiters. Did some sort of update or something mess up the recruitment feature? is anyone else having this problem?

Yep, and from what I can tell, basically every other NS++ feature is also currently broken except for infinitely-scrolling RMB.

RIP. Is there anyone working on fixing that?

I don't know if this has been reported yet, but my puppet sets keeps getting deleted. I have to remake them every time. :/

Minoa wrote:Hola,

I am supposed to be developing instructions for my OpenStreetMap server today, but in response to this, I have instead been attempting to recreate the “intrusive advertisement” problem on Safari 11.0.2 and Waterfox 56.0.1 for macOS Sierra 10.12.6. I've used the freshest install of NS++.

My investigation has discovered that the problem always occur when I visit the regions of The East Pacific and The Internationale. The function that causes the relocation of the ads is function ‘handleRMBAds’ in region.js, line 74.

It does not appear in my region (Minoa), or any of the regions that Minoa, The East Pacific or The Internationale have embassies with. I therefore have good reason to believe that there is something shady in the code if these two regions are the only affected.

Has anyone experienced the “intrusive advertisement” problem in any region other than The East Pacific and The Internationale?

Extra: I do not know if the original developer Afforess is really ‘Delete on Sight’? If the user really is, then I cannot legally contact them for an explanation.

I've taken a quick look at the css, and it looks like the sticking advert is the result of a problem with the offset of the "filler" div - which the location of the ad is based on. When you click 'X More' under the dispatches pinned on TI and TEP's WFEs, the ad fills a space in the middle of them and then stops following you down the page. It seems that this space is the 'filler' div and when it's display:none because of the number of dispatches, the offset causes an error with the ad. I'm still not sure why it only happens with TEP and TI, though.

Another thing to look at is that whenever the ad is moved, the footer (with Max's book links) is also given a position:fixed. Maybe take a look at showFooterLink() in line 779 of region.js?

Excuse me, if you mind me asking, because I was not the first to say this: how do you figure out ways to start up a newspaper? I mean, are there any 'easy' steps to creating a regional newspaper, I guess?

I believe the puppets work by saving cookies, which means that they don't save if you're on incognito mode or working across multiple browsers.
