Re: Apostrophes Edit

Apostrophes are actually acceptable in plurals? Or is it more of a "so many people do it that we'll just say it's okay" kind of thing? I was taught that it's completely wrong. I'm not planning on using the plural forms, just wanted to stop the spread of incorrect grammar :P. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  23:18, March 20, 2010

RE: Buttons (again) Edit

The new audio/video play buttons definitely look better than the old buttons. Thanks for fixing them! :)  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   23:35, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Font when editing Edit

Is it just me or did the font in editing mode change? I don't like the new font :/ Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  21:13, March 23, 2010

File:SS4MvP.PNG. It's only a problem in Firefox - the old font is still shown in IE. Differences between the fonts are this one is slightly bigger/different looking and single quotes (') are pointy. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  01:34, March 24, 2010
The same thing is happening to me. The "new" font only appears in Firefox, while the old font still shows up in IE. And I've also noticed that the new sound button doesn't appear in IE, it's still using the old one.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   01:53, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks :) Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  18:35, March 24, 2010


Hey MvP,

Out of curiosity, what does the IRPG template in your sandbox do? I've noticed you occasionally change the values in it, but all it displays is a random time value.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   02:47, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation. I can currently see the sprites besides the links at the top of the page, however they weren't there when I logged on yesterday. I've noticed that the sprites occasionally disappear for some reason, but they eventually return after a couple of hours.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs  18:50, Thursday, 25 March 2010 (ET)

Re: Time Edit

Yay :D Amazing how you can go from 85,000 bytes to only 1300. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  10:32, Thursday, 25 March 2010

Thanks for creating this, it's awesome! :D  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs  18:50, Thursday, 25 March 2010 (ET)

RE: Disparuean Flagbearers Edit

That picture is awesome. I never knew the Canadian Duality Flag was used during an Olympic event. Out of curiosity, where did you get the picture, and when in real life was it used?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs  18:50, Thursday, 25 March 2010 (ET)

But still, it looks pretty authentic. Good job!  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs  19:35, Thursday, 25 March 2010 (ET)

Userbox Duplicate Edit

Hey MvP,

One of your userboxes (the one with "This user formats dates in the little endian format") appears twice in your userbox list. Thought I should let you know.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs  20:01, Thursday, 25 March 2010 (ET)

Re: Gallery Edit

Thanks. I can't remember what it looked like before that change; I might want to make it a table anyway. On an unrelated topic, what do the <pre></pre> tags do? For some reason they cause a bit of a problem in IE where if there needs to be a horizontal scroll bar for the box they make, the whole box extends a lot vertically (when used on talk pages, anyway). I'm trying to eliminate all use of IE from my life but a lot of people still use it, so I'm curious about this. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  21:12, Thursday, 25 March 2010

Local Signature Time Edit

Thank You very much for not only making it, but for also informing me about it!

RE: Redirects Edit

I agree. The page should be moved to Wonders since that's what they're usually called in-game and by players, and there seems to be only one mention of "National Wonders" in-game.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   20:54, Saturday, 27 March 2010 (ET)

"Hide" feature Edit

How does one enable a "hide" feature on templates? I've tried Wikipedia's {{hidden}} but, alas, it does not work. Ray Matveyev (talk • contribs) 07:54, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

For whatever reason, it doesn't show up. On other templates it works just fine (I'm able to see them), however on Template:DRPgov, I'm unable to see the "hide" function. I'm running Google Chrome, and haven't experienced any problems in the past. Is my browser to blame? Ray Matveyev (talk • contribs) 08:14, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

I never disable is (as I have no idea how), but I checked and I have Javascript enabled. Ray Matveyev (talk • contribs) 08:22, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

It's no biggie, not the first problem I've encountered when modifying codes on templates. I'm wondering though if it's a personal setting for Wikia's software. Currently I'm using the old "basic" formatting since that's how I learned to publish wiki articles instead of using the newer "advanced" formatting options. Could this be any factor to how I view Wikia pages? Ray Matveyev (talk • contribs) 08:36, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

That is what I mean, guess it doesn't make a difference. Hm, well, I take your suggestion and file a report about the post. For the time being it isn't a big deal, just an aesthetics thing. Thanks for the help :) Ray Matveyev (talk • contribs) 08:47, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Flag table Edit

I thought there was a way to center tables, but I guess not? So is there a way to put multiple tables on the same line (since you need line breaks to start a new table...)? I was thinking I could put tables of 5% width and left and right floats to center the flag table by trickery (since it's 90% wide without spaces within flag cells, which looks better) :P. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  22:01, Wednesday, 31 March 2010 (ET)

I think it looks better in a table, especially if I make it a bit fancier, which I might do later. Is there a way to use a standard percentage so it looks the same for everyone? :P Also, is there a way to put footnotes or something in a table with a parameter, or would I have to put another table in? Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  22:15, Wednesday, 31 March 2010 (ET)

Recategorization, German translation Edit

Thanks for helping me recategorize the files in Category:Disparu files, and for fixing my Google Translate German translation of "Imperial Hudson Reich". It's appreciated.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   22:00, Saturday, 3 April 2010 (ET)

Timeline Edit

Is there something I could use to graphically display a timeline for my war? It would make it easier to see when each war started and ended. I'm not really sure how to describe what I'm visualizing, do you need more explanation (if it's even possible)? Or is there a better way to do it? Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  21:18, Monday, 5 April 2010 (ET)

Ah never mind, I did it the only way I know how: a wikitable :P. I don't want to rely on other people too much; I've already spent way too much of your time. Anyway, do you like my timeline? :P. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  20:40, Tuesday, 6 April 2010 (ET)

DAWN's Flag Edit

DAWN's flag is currently named 'DWANflag.png'. Not sure if you want to change that to DAWNflag.png or something to be consistent, since "DWAN" is surely not an accurate description. Longbowe (talk • contribs) 03:40, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Council TableEdit

THANK YOU! That was driving me nuts! I could not figure out how to show them all at once without opening them all  Brennan   Talk • Brennan    15:56, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

I think I will use the collapsible option for the previous ones and leave the current council as an open list. Thank you for the suggestion.  Brennan   Talk • Brennan    16:24, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Table exporting? Edit

Is there any way to copy wikitables to Word or similar program so that they can be printed, or can that only be done by taking a screenshot of the table? I'm going to use one for a school assignment just for fun, so I was wondering if there was a way to print it without losing quality. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  14:22, Thursday, 8 April 2010 (ET)

I can't figure out how to do any of that :/ I have Opera but I never use it so I don't know how it works. I suppose printing the page would be best unless I can figure out the other stuff. Thanks for the help. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  14:53, Thursday, 8 April 2010 (ET)
It's not finished yet, I was asking preemptively :P. It's not due for a week or so I think, we started today. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  15:00, Thursday, 8 April 2010 (ET)

{{Information}} Edit

Okay then. I'm only planning on using the template on images with other versions (such as the Disparuean Forces' seal), so don't worry.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   20:54, Thursday, 8 April 2010 (ET)

The new upload form looks Awesome! It makes uploading stuff, putting a description, and tagging them more efficient. A couple of users might not like it though, since a lot of the stuff uploaded in the CN Wiki don't have a proper license tag or a description.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   15:35, Friday, 9 April 2010 (ET)

Watchlist Edit

I just noticed that Special:Watchlist links to itself for some reason ("View relevant changes," the first link on the page). Would it be possible to change that link to something else, such as Recent Changes? (Also, the auto-refreshable Recent Changes page should be the default recent changes page if possible, it's better even without auto-refresh. In fact, I should probably bookmark that page so I don't forget to use it.) Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  21:14, Thursday, 8 April 2010 (ET)

RE: Berlin Summit Edit

It looks good, both OOC-ly and IC-ly. My IC government wouldn't object to most of the treaty obligations. Good job on the article.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   17:21, Friday, 9 April 2010 (ET)
