I think "Canada" should be the western part of the US and Canada plus Baja California.
I think "Mexico" should be the Plains & Rockies U.S. and Canada plus all of Mexico except Baja and Yucatan.
I think "USA" should be everything east of the Mississippi plus Yucatan plus Greenland.
It would all make more sense: an Atlantic nation, a Pacific nation, and a Big Sky nation.
Arise, nation of Atlantica!
Wow, OP. You DID it! Best thread EVER!!!
Thanks, but we don't want any of what you're offering. None.
Greenland is part of the Kingdom of Denmark.
No. We just want each other. We'd have commerce, farming, entertainment, culture, tech, everything.
What about us?
The Caribbean and Central America
Alaska needs to go back to Russia, just so we can get rid of the Palins.
Wow. That was thoughtless.
Yes, let's. Then let's pretend we're Disney princesses.
Denmark has no business exploiting Greenland. Kick 'em out. It would take, what, 20 policemen?
See if Alaska were in a continuous territory with the rest of its nation they wouldn't be so odd.
The Caribbean is not bothering anyone. Let it alone.
SF to be capital of the Pacific nation, Mexico City the middle nation, and Montreal the eastern nation.
OP, you're the biggest DL idiot if the year! Congrats!
No, the Confederacy needs to come back so we can ditch the religious nuts. Well, the worst of them.
1. Alberta is already a virtual Texas and would gladly make it official.
2. BC is almost all Chinese today. That is why they call it Hongcouver. Regardless of which country they are "under", they will always be and operate like a Chinese nation.
3. Quebec will always be France, it will never join the US (or English Canada).
4. Nova Scotia will re aline with the UK. Remember, Halifax was built to serve as Englands biggest naval base centuries ago.
The lines between Mexico/California/Arizona are already disappearing.
Alberta and Saskatchewan and NWT belong in Jesusland. And possibly Manitoba.
Gay friendly Iowa and economically liberal Ohio clearly do not.
The problem with the Jesusland map is, it excludes California. Once you get south of the LA city limits, Jesusland is in full effect right down to the Mexico border.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
