Added my new nation of Leafana to the region. You're all invited to our inaugural cozy campfire if you want. There'll be marshmallows and song-singing. :)

My wonderful homeland of the People's Republic of Get Lost was ranked 19th in GTA Forums region couple of days ago and is now in full reverse to 51st! I have superb civil rights and a strong economy - what the hell am I doing wrong? 

 

Think my people are a bunch of whiny ingrates

That ranking is based on Authoritarianism. You have superb civil rights and average political freedoms, pushing you away from the authoritarian end of the spectrum.

Wonder if the nation list as the worst in the world is some liberal, free-thinking paradise? I'll have to check


Apparently this is the worst nation in the world --> http://dark.nationst...ii/detail=trend

 

100% for civil and political freedoms and has a strong economy. Sounds like paradise - actually is hell on earth.

Hey, how do you get a custom flag?

Go to settings, then look for 'national flag' under that there should be an option for create your own. Click that.

Then, you can choose an image that is downloaded to your computer.

Your flag should be in PNG, GIF, or JPEG format,and no larger than 250KB.

Your image will be resized to fit on your nation page. Generally, images come out best if they are rectangular: about two-thirds as high as they are wide.

 

If you want someone to make an actual flag for your nation, then go here and make a request.

http://forum.nations...t=238034there's people who make flags; if they can make a flag for you they'll probably telegram it to you. Then download that image, and follow what I said above.

The ranking system changes every day btw. Today it could be a ranking on how authoritarian your country is, and you'll be low, and tomorrow they could rank on most free and you'd probably come up a lot higher. The only way to lose by their system is to stay average, but if you're happy being average it's not even losing. :)

 

The category they rank on always shows up as the last sentence on your nation's page, just above the "national happenings."  It changes around midnight.

There's even a 'most average' ranking, so by being average you can actually win.

Dudeville is proud to announce that we have officially been reclassified as a "Scandinavian Liberal Paradise"

 

f*ck yeah.

one step to closer to my ultimate goal of communist Utopia. we're top 5% of the world in Income Equality, all drugs are legalized, there's no crime, we have no economy, and our people enjoy a beautiful array of civil and political liberty.

I added my nation to the region. I have never played this before so it may take a little while for me to get up to speed. 

 

The name of my nation is Hanselania

Just remember to give the government control of everything, maximize military spending, and execute dissidents.

So apparently the high income earners in my country pay a 100% tax rate. I did pass a bill giving tax breaks to the lower incomes so it must have raised taxes on the wealthy to make up for it.

holy sh*t they just reclassified me again.

 

I went from Scandinavian Liberal Paradise to Left-wing Utopia.

no economy, but boundless social and political freedoms. Dudeville is easily the happiest hippy nation in GTAF.

Has NationStates given anyone else a malicious adware virus? Every time I visit the site my McAfee goes crazy and I have to run several virus scans and remove some on the pop up apps manually.

^ No, probably a false positive from McAfee, and maybe something else is lurking on your computer, giving the popups. They advertise using Google Ads, and disabling AdBlock didn't bring anything sketchy up.

 

 

I re-activated the nation I played with last time GTAF did a nationstates game, and it's like waking up after blacking out. I have no idea what I was doing with legislation, they deleted my old flag, and I'm a member of a region I don't know anything about. On the up-side I have enough population to get the leader issue, and I'm about a month away from the national religion issue. :)

Hmm maybe. It just seems that it only ever happens when I visit NationStates. I get ClearThink backdoored onto my computer and then every site I visit afterwards is littered with popup ads until I run a virus scan and eliminate all problem files and then go in and manually delete ClearThink. And it only ever happens when I visit NationStates and when I stop going to NationStates it stops happening.

nothing like this has ever happened to me and I've been using Nation States since like 2007.

 

you need to tighten up your browsing habits.

what browser do you use?

 

are you using NoScript?

AdBlocker?

I use Opera. And I'm not really aure if I'm using any Ad block software. Just basic internet protection through the McAfee package that came with my computer when I bought it. It's just weird because if I don't visit Nation States it's fine and I get no pop ups. But pretty much the second I open up NationStates the screen is filled with pop up ads and then even after I close it every site I visit afterwards is almost unusable because of them. And if I don't visit NationStates it doesn't happen. It seems that the common element here is NationStates

@gtamann

If you don't mind visiting the site again, see if this (http://www.wikihow.c...p-Ups)-in-Opera) fixes it. If not, the popups are probably caused by something already on your computer. Even then, I really doubt such an acclaimed online game has intrusive popup ads like that.

 

If you have half-an-hour or so free, try scanning with MalwareBytes (https://www.malwarebytes.org/) to remove whatever's causing it. McAfee isn't exactly the best for catching stuff, and the only reason it's pre-installed on your computer is because the manufacturer was payed to put it there. And if you prefer using Mcafee, MalwareBytes is easy enough to remove when you're done.
