on my home page it says I have 4 issues, and in the description is talks about the last issue I decided on.
but when I go to issues it just gives me the one I had allready decided on.
This could be a caching issue. Try clearing your browser's cache and see if that helps.
Also, ctrl+f5 = force non-cached refresh. But that won't work on the issue page, unfortunetly. Because of the way the game works, you'll just go back to your main nation page. Try going to Tools>Internet Options>[General Tab...the one you are on]>Setting>Every visit to page (you may as well lower the cache size while your here, whatever it is it's probably to big).
