I am currently having link problems. The links are adding a "www." to the front of the url; when I take it out the links work. So if you are having any problems with the links, then delete the "www." from the front of the url.
Then it's something specific to your computer or your browser. www.google.com Links work just fine for me with the www in front. Is your browser perhaps adding an additional www to the url, making it gibberish?
Ah, apologies. Nationstates.net is not currently working with the www prefix -- we're aware and we'll see what we can do.
Good job, theyre back up.
