  1. Oh dear, I'm sure there's a lot of material to work with. That was an interesting time.

Another red-number month for Bob, April. A handful of alliances had gains, some of them large: The New Pacific Order and Independent Republic of Orange Nations both gained more than four points of score, with the Independent Republic of Orange Nations actually managing double-digit member growth for the month. The Global Alliance and Treaty Organization and NATO also managed solid growth of more than a point, allowing them to pass the Green Protection Agency and Sparta respectively. Besides that, though, there were some pretty big losses. CLAWS continued a rather precipitous drop, losing fourteen members and almost three and a half score, though they held on to their spot as the third largest alliance by score thanks to loss of more than two and a half score by Freehold of the Wolves. There were also some large losses by the Federation of Armed Nations, and the World Task Force (who are really flirting with the Drop Line now), with Sparta, The Legion, Green Protection Agency, and The Mostly Harmless Alliance all losing more than a point of score. Well, I'll see you at the end of May, folks.

Bit of a rough month for the cyberverse, March. We saw some decent growth for some alliances, Independent Republic of Orange Nations leading the way with almost two points worth, followed by the New Polar Order, Federation of Armed Nations, and the Viridian Entente, each of whom gained more than one score. We saw some quite large losses as well, however, particularly from CLAWS, who've lost double-digit members and almost five score. An ongoing war has caused The Kashmir to plummet out of the race, though they've managed to inflict more than a score of damage on the Freehold of the Wolves in exchange. Also of note is the Global Alliance and Treaty Organization dropping more than a score, and Mostly Harmless Alliance falling below the Drop Line. Not a ton of passing going on outside of the wars, but the Orange Defense Network managed to pull past The Legion with some decent growth, though they remain only a stone's throw away. Nordreich has just squeaked above Sparta, and close as those two alliances are some flipflopping is possible in the coming month. Same with Argent sneaking past The Grand Lodge Of Freemasons; it looks like the bottom half of the race could see some continued movement in the near term. Well, until next time.

Bit of a mixed month for the Cyberverse, February. Big gains posted by The Mostly Harmless Alliance, New Pacific Order, Independent Republic of Orange Nations, and Freehold of the Wolves, though Mostly Harmless Alliance, DOOMBIRD DOOMCAVE, The Kashmir, and Christian Coalition of Countries each suffered losses in excess of a point of score, with DOOMBIRD DOOMCAVE falling out of the race thanks to Cuba's departure, and Mostly Harmless Alliance and Christian Coalition of Countries are flirting with that Drop Line. Not a huge month for passes, with The Dark Templar managing to move up to 6th on the back of solid growth, while The Grand Lodge Of Freemasons makes a couple of passes by way of treading water. Shout out to Random Insanity Alliance for just barely squeaking above that Add Line. Well, until next time.
  5. People still play videogames? I thought everyone was too busy screwing around with farmville and microtransaction advertisements. On a more serious note, are we really still talking about graphics? This past (current?) generation advanced graphics to the point where I can't really see caring about any extra gains in that department. In fact it will probably only do more to push every representation of a human being in a western-made video game further into my Uncanny Valley, where they've been pretty much since the 360 and PS3 were launched. Beyond that, what are the selling points? Social media enabler bullcrap? Motion controls? I don't really do social media, and motion controls were stupid when Nintendo did them, they're pretty much always just going to be for gimmick games and kiddy crap. What else? World of Brown and Gray: The Shootening? A port of a half-assed PC game? If you paid me to do it, I might get a PS4. Odds are pretty good I'll not be bothering.

    The most I've ever lost was in PB-NpO, where I went from about 60k NS to about 15k. Unfortunately I don't think I've ever really gotten much bigger than I am now.
  7. What I do with password protected channels is different. Go to mIRC Options -> Connect -> Perform -> type in /join #channel password
  8. There are advertisements on the internet?
  9. Get an atlas, give it a look over every so often. I knew geography well because I always used to distract myself from actual schoolwork by looking at the maps hung up on the walls.
  10. Well, you know a large majority of the nations currently existing are just inactives with extremely small nations, who've made one and will never log on again, with an enormous turnover. A nation with 551 NS is ranked above about 20% of all nations, for instance. A nation with 1,028 NS is ranked in the top 78%, so there are ~4k nations at less than 1k NS. I think it's always been like this, except that we're 5 years into the game, so there's fewer people to find the game for the first time, make a nation, and forget about it completely. I think that might account for some of the decline in "player base."

    Turnover

    Being in high government is really not all it's cracked up to be.
  12. I think part of it is that the people who post on the OWF tend to be the people who take it more seriously. In our day BRIG made some friends through fighting them, and eventually allied several of our historic enemies, because conflict with them allowed us to get to know them and find that ultimately they were pretty decent folks.
