Whoever wins the most cash gets to upload a low quality flag that makes this look excellent.

Looking at the revised font (I know how web fonts work, thanks), the cards remind me of a board game that involves politics and war: it’s called Risk.

*sigh*

It's gonna be one of those lame April Fool's Day jokes like when we had Cards Against NationStates, innit.

Only upside was that forumside allowed us to be "mods..." :P

That seriously happened? Darn. I missed it than. :(


I missed it too. It was after I joined NS, but I happened to be busy with RL and missed the whole thing.

Tomorrow will be your one-year, right? We've known about it for a while, so it's not a surprise. Congrats on one year.

A long, long time ago, Nationstates didn't have a World Assembly. We had a United Nations, complete with UN emblem and all. Apparently the real UN took offense to this, and a lawyer sent Max a very unhappy cease-and-desist. Fortunately, we had a couple of months in which to comply, so we decided to use it for April Fools that year. Thus, the NSUN was replaced with the WA on April 1st, to the expected skepticism because wow, you'd think the IRL UN would have better things to do with their time or something. Fast forward to April 2... (Also, Max's blog post about the entire thing is pretty amusing, too!) :)


My favourite was splitting the boards into Liberal and Conservative.. the great Haiku thread arose from that.

Anyway.. it's April Fool's here and I see nothing.. NOTHING!

The "hidden" joke where we were allowed to be mods and use the warn tags though... that is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we'll never experience again (until the NS forums get replaced with Jolt 2.0)... :P

No! Don't riot!

Just launch a full-scale revolution that destabilises the government enough for [violet] to get involved, and while they are down in this mortal realm with us, we take the opportunity to cut the head of this corrupt machine off!

I think this game is based in the US west coast, so there it's almost 5pm. Wait 7h 12m.

There is a way to experience it again, but it comes at a price: Once you have seen the evidence locker, you can never un-see it.

Thing is, April Fools events usually start earlier than that (also I don't think the servers are based in the US West Coast plus Max Barry himself is from Aussieland and the staff is global) in satiate the unending desires of the people in the wrong hemisphere.

Yes, but I am somewhat skeptical that most people will ever have the ability to experience that.

But no news post yet doesn't mean much. Last year it was like 3 days before, but 2016 the first news post was on the day or just before.

The problem with riots and revolutions on NSG is the speed posters rally around some self-anointed dictator.. it's really amazing how conferring the virtual title of Chief Administrator of Puppies leads to total unwavering support.

What I'd really like this year is a BOOT! button, any poster with more than 5 years posting history is given the right to BOOT! anyone off the boards for a day, just because they bothered you.

So, uh, since there doesn't seem to be an April Fools, anyone want to go replay old April Fools games while we wait and hope for a new one?
