I've been told in order for Nations to be changed, it needs major recoding. Of course, we all know the salaries of the "employees" here are pretty small (0$/year). Therefor, none of them want to face this big task.

Would an incentive push things in the right direction?

I've recently made a ticket explaining how I thought proposing community ideas back to the community and allowing votes to happen would heat things up and be of great help for the game's interest.

How much would you be willing to pay for something to happen? More importantly, which admin would be up for the actual "Job"?

I'll start with 20$!

meh, i would invest money. i wouldnt donate, and as an investor i would expect a return. because sites like this do have potential, if handled correctly.

What i'd be paying for is not for increasing the speed at which TA is coming out, it's to finally do what has to be done with what's been running NN for the past years: Nations.

Meh, why not? No thank you.. I've heard before, that this site along with the games would be made better(without having to pay!) and now that this didn't happen, you've decieded maybe money will speed things up? I think not.

Why don't you just make two NN's the poo poo ty one and the decent one, and only Vips get to enter the decent one.

Nations is a WWII game, not a stone age game, otherwise instead of tanks and plane wed have t-rex riders and pteradacdyl fliers.

Why pay money? It seems stupid to me.

Their incentive for coding the site should be the fact that the site itself will fall apart if they don't.
Sal said on: 2008-06-26 07:49 pm

Well, they have other plans to keep the site running...

But, alot of the members would like Nations to be completely done before getting new stuff.

I'll put $5 in.

Wait..

Nevermind. You don't need to throw cash at us to feel like only something will be accomplished if you do it that way. Although the gesture is appreciated, I think I'll have to respectfully decline this proposition. I'll never turn down any donations made to NN (or me) out of the goodness of one's heart, hwever to bribe me to do something can only be achieved for certain things! :)

Make a list of things you'd like to see happen, and I'll take a look at it, then weigh the time to feasability ratios.

I've also been incredibly sick for a bit, and has pretty much reduced me to not getting out of bed.

I gave Blake 7.13 (tax) and then he took me behind the dumpster and showed me his comic book collection. He has the holographed Batman where he dies!

How many people today will still throw cash at him to get his site/game patch'd up?

(Sorry, I was looking for something)

I wouldn't pay another damned cent, not even if there was a fire.

I've paid for memberships for like 2 years already, and I really don't see the reasoning for paying extra for something that should already be happening.

But alas, if u guys wanna pay extra go for it, I really hope that actually happens. Maby I'd be back to enjoy the stuff u guys bought:)

id gladly match the $20 by others but it would depend on the type of changes (naturally whether i agree with them or not) and whether theyd be executed in timely fashion.

as far as immediate suggestions/changes...

1) make the max price for market items $20 again

2) take a look into jings(?) idea about a Nations bank.

3) bring back the "winner" tag

4) host another "mass blake" event

...ill continue to add when i have more time.

Maybe NN should put up an IPO. Then all we users can buy up shares of this site. Sort of we are investing and MAY have returns. And at the same time, NN gets some cash boost to improve itself and we own the site too

=)

LOL IPO.
We might as well start options trading.

btw to buy a company over that is 1 cent per share on the share market is still a few million dollars.
