hey i was just wondering if it's possible to do a 'skip to page number....' box or something in 'the world'. Coz frankly i can't be bothered to trawl through hundreds and thousands of countries whos names being w a or space or dash just to see what other kinds of interesting there are on the planet. sorry if that sounds at all rude. it's not meant to:D

From Sticky: The New Tech [and Mod] Forum FAQ (

The nation search system stinks! Can't we add an index or tabs or something?
No. Not techncially possible at this time. However, there is an alternative. Move your nation search out of the main frameset. (Shift-click on List all nations ( Once there, advance to Page 2 to bring up this URL manually changing the /start=### number, you can advance thousands of nations instantly. A little judicial guesswork will get you into the right neighborhood in 3 or 4 guesses, and then you can advance the page numbers manually to find what you seek.
