The Unofficial Borked Nations Report Thread

Postby The Orwell Society » Sat May 07, 2022 2:39 pm

There have been an awful lot of "borked" nations caught and reported lately - nations that are bugged in more than one way. "Borked", in this context, means that they are bugged to oblivion and defy basic NS code rules.

Examples may include:
  • A nation with a population of 5 million but is months old.
  • A nation with a messed-up pretitle that glitches their page.
  • A bugged nation in a region that doesn't exist.
  • A nation who's stats just don't add up to its rankings/corresponding stats.
  • And any other moderate to severely messed up nation!

So I decided to make a thread to report these odd and bugged nations so the mods won't have to face a dozen threads for a dozen different borked nations.

NOTE: The world census ranking bug (when newly created nations show up on the top ten in the leaderboard) should not be reported here, the mods don't see it as a problem that needs to be fixed.

I don't know if this is already known, but this nation's page is very borked:

I noticed it is in Testregionia. Perhaps it is a (very weird) test nation?

Nah… I looked deeper and saw a lot of moderator action against this nation in the form of suppressed RMB posts.

The nation in question has a series of blank custom fields. As far as I can tell, they blanked them themselves as a test. I'm not seeing anything else that looks 'borked".

No you didn't. If we suppress a post, it says "mod-suppressed". The posts you saw were self-deleted or suppressed by regional officers, not mods.

It's possible to blank any field if you know how. l u n a .

Trick is to find a character that the game will accept but won't print. The potato emoji used to work but now apparently it doesn't.

Interesting… it seems that Mr. Lemon put quite a lot of blank characters into their customizable fields. That would explain why it looks so damn strange

Maybe they used zero-width spacers, which count as characters.
