Nope, nothing. Should i turn off javascript?

Wait new theory, you couldn't see a bb code image and you couldn't access a link to a bb code image host. I think whatever browser or device your using isn't working with bb code. this website is practically powered by it



Im using safari/yahoo on an ipad. Doesnt that have anything to do with 'bb code'

Actually, i see it now. It says 'BBCode is ON' under the emojis

Okay so basically (this is my belief I may be wrong) all of the buttons on the home page are images that are being displayed by bb code image hosting. This website does use html and stuff like that for linking between pages and all the other UI. The UX however uses bb code to format the pages and make it look a pretty. Your browser or device seems to have a problem with bb code and because of that you aren't getting any displays, buttons or side bars

Out of curiosity, what happens when you try accessing pages via links? e.g., Settings - https://www.nationstates.net/page=settings; Issues - https://www.nationstates.net/page=dilemmas; Telegrams - https://www.nationstates.net/page=telegrams (etc.)

iOS 5

If you can't upgrade past 5.1.1, you're using an original iPad. You can try a different browser, but ultimately, there's not going to be developer support for an operating system that went out of support 10 years ago.

If you can upgrade your iOS, you're either running an iPad 2 or 3 and should be able to upgrade to iOS 9.3.6 and see if it resolves your issue.

Ouch, this is an original iPad. Ive had it for seven years but never thought it was that old. It still works pretty good with most things, though it is a little bit slow at times.

Looks like you're somehow not logged in gameside.

Does it help when you check the "keep me logged in" box?

Or maybe try removing Nationstates cookies?

I believe we got the issue sorted out to an old device that doesn't update anymore
