Wysteria Regional Message Board
A Big Byte out of Wysteria!
It’s another short-term market report today, with super farms last featured January 16th, just over a month ago. The “+” indicates moving up the ranks from the last time this category was featured; “-“ indicates losing ranks; and nothing means that your ranking was unchanged. That or either you weren’t in the region last time this category was shown (Florenzia and Amalgamated Conglomerates ), or you were then too far back in the standings to have your data previously recorded (Ummagumma). Only when short-term variations, up or down, are part of an overall trend should they be considered a diagnosis of your movement in the overall standings.
The Wysterian market index was down a staggering1607 ranks in the world standings, after yet another industry was savaged by the new ranking system. Many nations didn’t just tumble hundreds of ranks, but thousands. Other nations with not much going on as economic powerhouses appeared out of nowhere. Nations, like Dub Dizzle and Dienes, were sent from competitive ranks to the stone age of the IT world overnight.

Can someone please tell me where the factbooks that used to be on the nation front page went? I can't find mine anymore.
Second little icon (looks like a book) in the row just below your "civil rights", "economy" "political freedoms" status.
Thanks a lot! I found it
It's sort of like how when you get a new computer program/system upgrade and someone decides to put the buttons somewhere different in the latest one than where they've been for the last ten years. It can take a while to intuitively find your way around again.
On the whole, I like it. I'm not a fan of them choosing brown for the region links, as it uglifies our World Factbook Entry, but I can see why they'd want to use a different colour than nation links.
The custom nation banners are cool, but can be a bit on the challenging side. When you're in the process of browsing for uploads, they recommend dimensions of 1200X400. This information is clearly wrong. The NS Technical Forum recommends 1200X300, which works better, but still isn't quite right. The images as you see them in the Banner (Settings) page are also nothing like how they will look when treated to what NationStates will do with the image.
It takes a bit of experimenting to make something that works; especially if you don't want the top or bottom of your image to get cropped by NationStates. If you're using composite pictures to make a banner, ensure you save all of the elements you used, as you might have to start from scratch a few times to get the desired image. I did my custom banners using MS Paint, because it's something I'm used to using, but I'm certain that there are better programs for doing this. I'm not certain if anyone has managed to create any animated gif banners out there, but I'd be interested to see them, if someone could point them out.
If you're looking on the web for images to use, like say Google, use an advanced search and set it to panoramic picture sizes. Just make sure you don't use a banner that is 1200X 200 (or significantly shorter than 300) or the stretching will not make a pretty banner picture.
