Military Unit infobox Edit

I thought I should let you know that I created this Military Unit infobox. At first glance, while it looks similar to this one (and it should be because I copied the code), I actually deleted a great deal out of the one I've created. You can see it working on Shock Squadron's article, and while it's essentially the same I changed "country" to "alliance" to make it work better in that role, rather than for a nation RP, along with removing all of the aircraft section and a few other things. I figured I should tell you in case you might have deleted it, thinking I had made a duplicated template. Cheers! -- Imperial Emperor - Talk 12:52, May 18, 2010 (UTC)


It would probably be better to just revert those two anon edits. From a quick scan it doesn't look like they actually added any content. And I have no idea why some people randomly add a lot of spaces for the fun of messing stuff up :P. Btw, there seems to be a problem with {{Style}} being used next to the infobox (text goes into/on top of the infobox). Those darn infoboxes :P.

RE: Forums Edit

The results of the test seemed normal, and other sites (such as the CN Forums, the SOS-dan forums, YouTube, Wikipedia, and a ton of other sites) are still loading normally, so the problem might not be on my end.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   23:30, Friday, 21 May 2010 (ET)

Team templates Edit

Should all of the team templates have {{clear}} before their content? I didn't look through all of them but so far I noticed that {{Black}} and {{Green}} don't have it. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  20:45, Saturday, 22 May 2010 (ET)

Spring Update Edit

Badges sound fun, I hope they'll be awarded retroactively :P. Also, I looked at that site traffic thing for this wiki and the most daily views by far was when the CN forums were offline ^_^. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  13:45, Monday, 24 May 2010 (ET)

Alliance History Edit

Hey MvP,

Thanks for updating my alliance history page, it's appreciated. I almost forgot about it. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   19:52, Monday, 24 May 2010 (ET)

Thanks for tweaking the infobox. Though, would it be possible to fix the infobox so that text doesn't flow into the next entry when it gets too long?
Also, are you actually in Singapore? If so, then have fun! ^_^  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   20:14, Tuesday, 25 May 2010 (ET)
Yeah, that's what I meant. Wouldn't you be able to fix the problem if each entry was separated into a row of its own?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   20:10, Wednesday, 26 May 2010 (ET)

UnknownUnavailable's messageEdit

Wow had no idea you were so important here Micheal :) your page looks awesome Preceding unsigned comment added by UnknownUnavailable (talk • contribs)

Flag trouble Edit

I dunno why, but part of File:Bobogoobo (Province) Flag.svg isn't showing up. There's supposed to be another red bar thingy in that white space on the right. But this link does display it. What am I doing wrong? Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  21:04, Wednesday, 26 May 2010 (ET)

Also, in the CN Wiki version the red bar that is there does not appear to be vertically centered (there is more white space under it than above it), although it is centered in the other link. Could this be due to how adding a filter increases the border/size of the object? What do I have to do to make the wiki happy :P. Bobogoobo - Talk - Nation  21:26, Wednesday, 26 May 2010 (ET)

Barnstars Edit

I've been planning some wiki things recently, and while I was looking for information for various projects on Wikipedia I came across the barnstar awards. Would you be interested in introducing something like this here? Barnstars would by far be the best sort of CN Wiki award to create, they would be self sustaining in the end as there wouldn't need to be an award panel or such to grant them. Barnstars could be created for things like alliances, updating alliance stats, reverting vandalism, team information, nation information, RP, etc. Because anyone could introduce a barnstar, it means a few people don't need to try and think up all the awards all the time. As for the graphics themselves, there are many talented artists in the CN community and it may be possible to enlist their help for say, the first batch of awards at least, as it gives a good base. What do you think of this? -- Imperial Emperor - Talk 13:04, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Categories Edit

Hey MvP,

Do you think categories should be cleaned up if they have subcategories (such as Category:Cities) to make things more organized? For example, instead of categorizing Jubilife to Category:Cities, Category:Capitals and Category:Cities of Disparu, the page can just be categorized to Category:Cities of Disparu, since the category is a subcategory of Category:Capitals (which, in turn, is a subcategory of Category:Capitals). This would make categories more navigable since they would be less cluttered and more organized. What do you think?

On an unrelated note, what happened to your blog's site? I haven't been able to open it for a while.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   16:44, Tuesday, 1 June 2010 (ET)

I placed Category:Cities of Disparu under Category:Capitals since I thought every article in that category was about a capital city. I forgot about Montreal though, so thanks for pointing that out. :D Anyways, wouldn't it be possible to program a bot to automatically re-categorize articles in those categories? A bot could check if an article is categorized in a main category and a subcategory, and if it is, the bot could un-categorize the article from the main category. Would that be possible?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   20:45, Tuesday, 1 June 2010 (ET)

Vandalism Edit

Hey MvP,

Thanks for blocking the guy who vandalized my nation's article, it's appreciated. ^_^ I noticed both of our nation articles were vandalized this morning. Even though my article was vandalized four hours after yours was, and the guy who vandalized Disparu was using a Japanese IP instead of an American one, could both incidents be related somehow?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   18:14, Thursday, 3 June 2010 (ET)

You're welcome. On an unrelated note, if you don't mind, could you remove Labrador from File:Disparu (orthographic) (provinces).svg and the versions for Almia, Coronet, Nunavik and the Gaspésie? Labrador was ceded to a new CNRP player yesterday, so the maps will have to be reupdated again.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   19:22, Thursday, 3 June 2010 (ET)
Thanks, MvP. :)  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   20:51, Thursday, 3 June 2010 (ET)
Once the "What links here" pages for Pastoria and Labrador gets refreshed, I'll fix the links to them.
Anyways, I ceded Labrador due to OoC reasons. A new CN player who wanted to participate in CNRP sent me a message one day, asking if he could have Labrador (since that was also his in-game nation name and location). I didn't really have anything planned for Labrador in my RP (besides a terrorist RP that didn't really turn out great), I wanted more players in CNRP, and I didn't want to drive out a new CN player, so there weren't any major reasons for me to deny his request (besides having to update a ton of stuff here in the wiki).  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   21:05, Thursday, 3 June 2010 (ET)
Okay, I've updated the two images. Thanks for pointing those out. Anyways, I agree, Labrador's secession will probably make for some interesting RP. That, and the Parti Français has been slowly gaining more support and seats in Parliament since the Gaspésie joined Disparu, so retaining English as an official language might make them overthrow the Government - which is mostly composed of Illuminati Pokémonist Society Disparu Committee members and supporters. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   21:35, Thursday, 3 June 2010 (ET)

Signature bot Edit

Hi, I'm an admin and b'crat at Battlefield Wiki, but I'm also a Wikipedia user. I couldn't help noticing your post asking for a signature bot for this place. I'm wanting the same for my wiki, so I was wondering, did you ever get a reply? - User:Bondpedia (talk) 18:54, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks anyway - User:Bondpedia (talk) 19:06, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Images Edit

Ah, thanks for the update. I think it's a problem with thumbnails as a whole, since the map thumbnail in the Imperium of Canada is displaying an older version of the file even though it isn't a SVG file.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   20:12, Monday, 7 June 2010 (ET)

Heh. Wikia seems to be having a lot of image problems lately... <_<  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   11:32, Monday, 21 June 2010 (ET)

Huh? Edit

Out of curiosity, why was File:DisparuStorm.jpg considered spam/vandalism? I don't remember spamming or vandalizing that file before it was deleted... O_o  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   22:45, Monday, 7 June 2010 (ET)

RE: Unknown War and current crisis Edit

Certainly. I'll split it from the main article as soon as I get through the other stuff I'm working on here.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   17:00, Sunday, 20 June 2010 (ET)

The supposed war between the US and the Great Lakes seems to have turned into an environmental cleanup project, so I might end up keeping the Unknown War section with the main article. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   11:21, Monday, 21 June 2010 (ET)

Merged Ingoman edits Edit

You should really talk to me before you undo my edits >_> Edit

The second SF is not connected to the first one, it's on a different colour, has a very different history, and came about through the merger of a number of SF alliances that had formed in the past.

Please undo your edit, I am working on the new page, but you are making things difficult for me. --James D. (talk • contribs) 00:09, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Fine I will obliterate the old one Edit

I suppose that will make you happy. --James D. (talk • contribs) 00:22, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

It's not the same alliance, that doesn't even make sense. Edit

That doesn't even make sense. It has a different flag, different colour, different founders, different origin, different FORUM, different IRC channel, different EVERYTHING. There is no connection between the two other than the name.

And yet, you have seperate articles for the Order of Random Insanity (TE) and the Random Insanity Alliance (TE)

It seems you have taken the tactic of "I don't like him, I'm going to prevent him from doing anything." --James D. (talk • contribs) 00:31, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

It's ok Edit

I've just encountered "shoot first and ask questions later" editors on every wiki I've ever been on. Part of it is me, I just make changes and am not fond of discussing them or getting approval first, but part of it is also the wiki culture breeds the mentality that everyone new is probably a vandal. --James D. (talk • contribs) 00:41, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Something amusing and yet irritating Edit

That's did that ever happen? O_o It seems that my theory on Wikia randomly selecting images and screwing them up is still true. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   21:08, Thursday, 24 June 2010 (ET)

I come offering a truce. At my disposal, I have a near limitless amount of proxies and enough time to mess with this wiki for a while.

Navigations Edit

Hey Michael! I have recently started playing another game alongside CN called Lord Empires. Anyways, it has a wiki for it as well, and the Admin of the game asked if I would improve the left side navigation bar. However, I don't believe I can do that without administrative powers on that wiki; am I correct in my assumption? Which brings me to my second question, if I cannot figure out exactly how to change the left side navigation bar correctly, would you be willing to help?

Thanks, -- Dynasty   Talk • Grand Besaid   16:28, Sunday, 25 July 2010 EST 20:28, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Flag of Disparu Edit

Even though I like the new versions more realistic colours, I think it would be better if I kept the old one just to keep things consistent. Thanks for telling me about it, though.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   13:31, Thursday, 26 August 2010 (ET)

Question Edit

Hey, how did you make this: File:Großgermania Reichstag Structure 2010.svg?


-- Dynasty   Talk • Grand Besaid   11:19, Sunday, 19 September 2010 EST

Thanks, but my new House of Representatives has 2987 members. Thus, I figured I'd try using 2008 NPC Seat Composition.png as my base. However, I can't seem to manage to edit the color of the seats correctly. If you'd like to give a shot at it, all of the information on my Grand Besaid House of Representatives page is correct (except the structure picture that is).
Thanks again,
-- Dynasty   Talk • Grand Besaid   17:33, Sunday, 19 September 2010 EST

Doug Butcher's messageEdit

Why am I not seeing the lines display on any of my pages where I have tables? They were there previously and I looked through my history. They aren't displayed there either. Preceding unsigned comment added by Doug Butcher (talk • contribs)

Updates Not Reflecting Visually, But Still Go Through Edit

Hey Mike, I've noticed that from time to time Updates that are made don't reflect. You know the update went through when you do see it sometimes show up, and it's there listed on your Contributions Pave of your User Page. But, on occasion I've noticed Updates not "display" on a Page that's edited. It does eventually go "display" the latest Update, but is this normal? Is it cookie related? I've also noticed Time Stamp issues sometime display the wrong Date/Time of the last Update (even-though the History reflects the right info).

Can you shed any light on why this may happen from time to time? Again, we know the Updates go through, it's just a matter of them not always showing the latest ones. This happens the most when you do an Edit while Logged in, but come back later while logged out. You see the latest Edits while logged in, but not while logged out.

hello Michael,

I've noticed that Union of Empires still exists on CN wiki.. UoE actually reformed into The State.. the Ruler John A MacDonald hasn't really posted anything on CN forums of notices of such events.. The reforms went from The Confederation of Canada - Union of Empires - The State.

Just wanted to let you know :)

Re: Alliance infobox Edit

I made it so that alliance factbooks will be displayed if they match the acronym instead of the full name, because I noticed some were like that. I fixed it a few minutes after I broke it; the server cache for that page was out of date. How long does it usually take for them to update? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  16:14, Saturday, 20 November 2010 (ET)

Looks like Locke fixed that, the problem was that they used {{up}} instead of {{UP}}. Try again :P Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  15:05, Sunday, 21 November 2010 (ET)

Military infoboxes Edit

Pages that use {{WPMILHIST Infobox style}} and the infoboxes that use it, such as Philippine Air Force, are screwed up for me. The styles for headings don't get applied properly - they show up as text. Is the same thing happening for you? I've spent at least an hour looking at those templates (including an attempt to reproduce the error by using the code as it would look without using templates, which failed), so I really don't want to see them anymore :P. Do you see what would be causing that? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  20:53, Sunday, 21 November 2010 (ET)

Okay, thanks. I wasn't aware that they had changed the software, though. What did they change that broke that template? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  18:19, Monday, 22 November 2010 (ET)
Okay :P In other news, I found out through a random comment on Community Central that it is still possible to use Monaco! - with "&useskin=monaconew" instead of "&useskin=monaco" (or "?useskin=monaconew" for pages not using /index.php?title=blahblahblah). So I was wondering if there was a way to add that to all internal links. I tried hard to learn the JS to do that, and maybe I was trying to make it overly complicated as usual, but it was way too complicated for me :P. Would you be able to do that? Don't worry about it if it would take too much effort. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  23:23, Monday, 22 November 2010 (ET)
Yay :D I dunno how long it'll last though, now that people have discovered the sekritz. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  23:33, Monday, 22 November 2010 (ET)
Awesome. Apparently I have a lot to learn about JS :P. But for some reason, that isn't working for me. It works as Opera user JS, but doesn't work in any other browser or in Opera without adding it to user JS. :S What am I doing wrong? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  00:25, Tuesday, 23 November 2010 (ET)

Yeah, sorry, my wording was confusing. What I meant was, it isn't working in User:Bobogoobo/wikia.js for any browser. It only works when I add it to the Opera browser JS. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  00:40, Tuesday, 23 November 2010 (ET)

I forgot to try removing all of the other JS. That leads me to think that something in there is causing everything else to break, and that if it is removed, everything will work again - callapsibles, {{USERNAME}}, etc. I'll test them one at a time tomorrow. (Hmm, also, it seems page preview doesn't work - it sent me to editing the last saved version of the page.) Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  01:01, Tuesday, 23 November 2010 (ET)
It was removed already, that was fast. I'll go back to trying to fix the Oasis JS now. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  16:41, Wednesday, 24 November 2010 (ET)


Using just a plain <pre> on my CSS page worked for transcluding it to CN:CSS properly. I don't remember why I didn't just do that at first. I think I copied the commented pres from your page actually, so why were they commented? :P Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  19:36, Saturday, 4 December 2010 (ET)

Oh, okay. Hooray Firefox :P. The only things in the Error Console are "YAHOO is not defined" and something about an uncaught exception with a lot of random characters. Yeah, I know the MediaWiki page works, but pretty much all of my changes violate the terms of use :P. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  02:57, Sunday, 5 December 2010 (ET)
They don't work for me :P they're only used in {{USERNAME}} and the function to switch the Following tab on user pages to Watchlist, and neither of those are working for me. Doesn't explain why collapsibles and stuff aren't working, though. Blah. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  03:15, Sunday, 5 December 2010 (ET)
Oh, of course :P. Well I don't see anything about broken JS on the community forum so I think I'll go ahead and start a new topic there. I want my collapsibles :P Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  03:28, Sunday, 5 December 2010 (ET)

Semi-collapsing tables Edit

Is there a way to collapse only part of a table? For example, my alliance history table. It's kind of large and I'm trying to reduce scrolling on my page (in preview anyway, since collapsibles work there :P), so I want to hide all the rows except the current one (which would also look better than highlighting it in aqua :P). So is that possible? I tried a few different ways but couldn't get it to work right. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation  21:27, Saturday, 18 December 2010 (ET)

Re: Thanks Edit

Anytime! I am just bummed that everyone keeps beating me to adding new DoWs to the thread.

Oh, and while I am thinking about it, do you have any good ideas for turning "Dynasty" into a more realistic name that I could use for my nation?

-- Dynasty   Talk • Grand Besaid   21:24, Thursday, 20 January 2011 (EST)

Actually, that helped a lot. I think I have got it. Christopher "Dynasty" Dynes will become my role playing name, I'll just happen to be a leader of minority ethnicity, not a big deal. I just added in a small Greek minority in Grand Besaid's ethnicity, so that will work. I looked up Greek names and in the Early Christian (Byzantine) Era, Christopher happens to be a common name, which will work well since I'll say my character was named after Saint Christopher.

Re:CSS Edit

Will do, thanks. W3C guide didn't say to have quotes so that's why I didn't use them. Might be a while before I get to see if it works though, it's hiding a box that says "Thanks for your edit here are some related articles blah blah blah" in the same style as talk page message notifications, dunno how often it shows up. Not sure why it shows up with that stuff turned off in preferences. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 18:11, Thursday, 27 January 2011 (ET)

Yeah, I'd rather not hide it globally in case anyone actually uses it. I guess it's not terrible if I can't get rid of it for myself. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 18:46, Thursday, 27 January 2011 (ET)

Just wondering, what is the point of MediaWiki:Newpagelayout? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 12:56, Wednesday, 9 February 2011 (ET)

Front page picture Edit

Curious really, how exactly did you create those front pages found on the Imperial Observer. It seems so realistic that it looks as if it was really printed instead of being created off from an image generator. If they were edited, then I probably wouldn't try because I would fail, bleh, and due to my limited technical skills and time; if any easier alternative is out there, I would appreciate it. Thanks. :) --Justin (talkcontribs) 23:46, March 10, 2011 (UTC)

Javascript Edit

I love you. Wub Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:47, Saturday, 12 March 2011 (ET)

Re:Capitalization Edit

Oh, sorry, didn't realize that. Still looked like my capitalization "correction" made nearly no changes at all to any template (either that or I didn't check). I always thought it was an error...just lying there and no one noticed it lol. Sorry. X|--Justin (talkcontribs) 23:38, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! :) --Justin (talkcontribs) 23:56, March 18, 2011 (UTC)
Makes sense to me, most people don't have nonsensical names without titles like I do :P. Thanks Wub Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 20:01, Friday, 18 March 2011 (ET)

Re:Analysis Edit

Thanks for providing me the links. Creating a factbook on other nations is the least roleplay I can do in showing how much I actually read them. Hopefully, I will one day document an archive of factbooks of the major nation pages on this wiki...though I intend on keeping it limited to STOP nations and by request. I will look up those formats you given me. Thanks! :) --Justin (talkcontribs) 03:02, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! Edit

thanks for all your help MvP! MvP would you know how i can add the auto-count factor from the nation infobox to the one i'm creating for my nation? Rogal Dorn/Infobox Please just drop me a PM if you're going to edit it because i'm still adding stuff to it. thank you very much again. Rogal DornTalkqwerty nation March 26, 2011 (ET)

Ya, surely. Like how you input the date your nation was established and it automatically fills in how many days old your nation is "Established 8/14/2010 (224 days old)" The bolded portion is what I mean on the regular nation infobox when it's displayed, how it's automatically shown you don't actually input how many days old your nation is, I hope this makes sense MvP. Thanks again! Rogal DornTalkqwerty nation March 26, 2011 (ET)
Perfect! That's exactly what I was looking for good sir! Thank you so much for all your help tonight. Rogal DornTalkqwerty nation March 26, 2011 (ET)

Time template Edit

Sorry to bother you again, but if you have the time, would you kindly produce a "time" template similar to Template:Disparu/JubilifeTime? My capital city is based in the real-world Riverside so my time is in the Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8). Currently, I'm in daylight saving time so the time is UTC-7 instead. Could you do the same by making it here: Template:JBRCityTime? Thanks!

Preferred display should be this: (example) 12:00 AM, March 24, 2011, JBR City, JBR

If you cannot display the "AM", "PM" thing, then you can just do the 1:00-24:00 one. :)

Thank you. --Justin (talkcontribs) 18:13, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Converting flag to SVG Edit

Hi MvP, can you change my crappy JPG-looking PNG roleplay flag to a flashy and smooth SVG pic (similar to all the other flags you uploaded)? My computer doesn't upload SVG and by as far as I am concerned, I'm not very artistic when it comes to a mouse and no pencil. Thanks! JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 21:06, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Much better. Thanks! :D JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 20:03, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Small text Edit

Ooh, thanks! For some reason I didn't think of putting it in my user CSS before :rolleyes: I changed my sig a while ago, because I thought it was some issue with Firefox 4, since the issue seemed to coincide with me getting that. Figures I should've gone with blaming Wikia first :P why would they ever intentionally disable a tag like that. Can we not put the fix in MediaWiki:Common.css? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:01, Wednesday, 27 April 2011 (ET)

I put my changes in my user CSS since most of them are personal preference. But putting back the correct functionality of a tag, that should be global :P added. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:12, Wednesday, 27 April 2011 (ET)

Map Edit

Hi, I was looking for someone who could make a map for my RP, but so far, no one could do it. I was wondering if you are able to do it (I'm no expert when it comes to geography and computer graphics :P).

File:California county map (labeled).svg

The United States of JBR accompanies the counties of Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, San Diego, San Louis Obispo, and Imperial and the Channel Islands. I would also like to note that, on the same picture, you can add a smaller inset within the image showing the JBRican possessions (e.g., Rio de Janeiro (state), Peru, and Chile. Please take the borders out, take out the names, and try copying the shape onto the world map (much similar to this in style: File:United States (orthographic projection).svg

I also need you to add the Nevadan county of Clark (where Las Vegas and Area 51 are at), the Arizonan counties of Mojave, La Paz, and Yuma, and the Baja Californian municipals of Mexicali, Tecate, Rosarito Beach, and Tijuana.

Also, for my secondary RP country, Central Kingdom, I would like to same style of imaging based on the Californian counties shown below. Include only the counties of Tulare, Kings, and Fresno.

File:Central California county map.png

For Gauntletia, it would only employ Monterey County. For Kern, it will only employ Kern. And for the Democratic People's Republic of California, it would include the counties of San Fransisco, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, San Benito, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, and Marin. (Use this one as a reference if you need to see closer: File:CA-FIPS.png

And last but not least, for the entire Californian Union, employ all of counties and areas aforementioned above.

Sorry for all of this work, this is only a request. I will be patient and you can delete this message after you finish it. If you can't, I understand. If you wish for me to clarify more on the borders, you can leave me a message. Thanks. JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 04:49, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

That would still be acceptable. Thanks. JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 16:38, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
Whoa! That looks great. Can't wait to see the final product! :) JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 04:26, July 16, 2011 (UTC)
Nope, not a problem. The maps are great! And sorry about that headache. Thanks. JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 22:00, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Permission Edit

I would like permission to use this file for the National Unionist Party of the United States of JBR. Would it be alrite if I mentioned in the article that National Unionism emerged from the JBRican States instead of Großgermania (this is due to the JBRican States' exclusive involvement with the Post-Dissolution Sphere)? If not, I'll just skip on this page—I was just interested in adding another political party. Thanks in advance. JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 21:23, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

Re: masthead Edit

Yeah, I'm going to play with the alignment and stuff. You're too good at stalking :P Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 22:29, Sunday, 28 August 2011 (ET)

Yeah, I thought that was what it was. Seems it's gone now, as is the info bar (the removal of which actually made some things worse). The stuff I was trying to do with the masthead wasn't working, so I'm going to try something else. What is div.blackout? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 23:19, Sunday, 28 August 2011 (ET)
Alrighty, I'm done messing around. I think it looks pretty nice now, to me anyway. Until they change it again. :/ Also, one thing I noticed was that people with edits numbering 10,000 or greater have an extra line in their mastheads, meaning it takes a little bit more vertical space. Not sure why that is. As of now it still hasn't updated my CSS to show the different background color I'm trying on the tabs, so I won't be able to see how that looks until tomorrow. Also, whatever the little triangle thing that was between the avatar and the tally is, it hasn't disappeared (currently showing on my user page as a diagonal gray line under the Talk tab) and I can't find it in the code so I don't know how to remove it. Any ideas? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 01:43, Monday, 29 August 2011 (ET)
Woot, triangle gone, everything's all good now (I might work on reducing the height if I feel like it sometime). That was fun :P Thanks for the help :D Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 15:28, Monday, 29 August 2011 (ET)
That's odd, doesn't happen to me. I'm not sure I even can fix it without breaking something else. I blame your browser :P Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 15:38, Monday, 29 August 2011 (ET)
Actually I meant for it to break in half like that, otherwise there's a giant white space after the message. I like the Chromium one, I want the username to be bolded :P But it's whatever browser you're using that breaks off part of the padding at the beginning for some reason. Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:00, Monday, 29 August 2011 (ET)
Actually, I don't remember why I put that space there. There's already a space after the message. o_O Would it work if I just removed that space entirely? Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 18:01, Monday, 29 August 2011 (ET)
Yes, but then the last word of the message gets dragged along to the next line too :P. So two spaces sounds good.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 18:24, Monday, 29 August 2011 (ET)

RE: Surprise (sort of) Edit

I love you so much, Mako-chan. I'm really grateful~ <3 Wikia renders it well at 3000px (I think), so no worries.

Re: New Editor Edit

I've actually never used Edittools for some reason. o_O Well, the main thing I want to fix is the font. I remember a while ago you changed it in Monaco because your font was different, but I couldn't find the old styles. Would you happen to know them? I guess your browser hates Wikia too :P It works fine for me. Also I hate the preview being in popup (especially since user CSS doesn't get applied to it). Also, what is with this random "more +" button at the top when editing a talk page? Yours in hatred,  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 20:13, Wednesday, 7 September 2011 (ET)

Yeah, I dunno why it's different from mine. There's already a post on Community, I guess I'll try it. I mean the other more + :P It's like a collapsible but the only thing in it is blank space. Can you still use shortcuts to save? Alt-Shift-S is the current one I think. And yeah I agree with your post, pretty much the basis of my complaints.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 20:30, Wednesday, 7 September 2011 (ET)

Re: Symphony infobox Edit

Thank you for the comment on my talk page and the links provided. It is unfortunate that you interpreted it as "lecturing an administrator" when in fact I was merely responding to the demand for an explanation. Just as you have a right to interject yourself into discussion, I have a right to respond to, question, and initiate discussion with other users, including Admins.

In response to your links and the implication that we do not follow guidelines, I'll offer this: It's worth pointing out, once again, that other users and Admins have visited and made edits to Symphony's wiki page over the last year plus without complaint or issue. If something on the Symphony page did indeed violate a rule, or if there was an error in the code, then we would make and/or honor any necessary changes. In this case, however, it is a matter of mere preference and aesthetics, and Talk would have been more appropriate and appreciated than what in fact took place.

Re: transclusions from mainspace Edit

Does that mean I should also move these and these and these :< I don't know how I started that, but I was actually kind of looking for a way to organize them better, so putting them all as subpages of {{Bobogoobo}} would work. Is that how it's supposed to be done?  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:06, Monday, 5 December 2011 (ET)

Alright, I'll move them. First, I really want to fix the military NS parameter on my stats template. Transcluding the /milns subpage works, as does using the milns parameter, but having the code directly in a parameter does not. Trying to use the milns2 parameter I just put it in tells me "Expression error: Unexpected < operator," and I have no idea where it's getting that. Using the code directly works properly also. Any ideas?  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:46, Monday, 5 December 2011 (ET)

RE: Project Wiki Cleanup Edit

I sure am MvP, trying to cleanup the wiki just a bit. Bobo told me to tag certain pages(nation pages with only the nation Infobox and extended nation display) I find with {{Delete}} as well to assist him in cleaning up the wiki. Rogal Dorn | Talk | NationDecember 26,2011 (ET)

Ya I have been doing that as well, all the nations in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion are deleted. Not sure what's actually going to happen with the 2 wars that are tagged though. :S Rogal Dorn | Talk | NationDecember 26,2011 (ET)
If they're existing nations and a {{Nation stub}} I've sent a couple pm's in-game actually saying "hey, I came across your wiki page and I was intrigued" and I link their nation and I secretly hope that they will be like "oh hey, I forgot about that..." but maybe it's futile, who knows, I figure it can't hurt. Rogal Dorn | Talk | NationDecember 26,2011 (ET)
Hey MvP, np I understand, those were automatically highlighted by AWB and subsequently changed, I probably haven't found the setting but I figure it doesn't hurt to ask, is there a way to setup an "autoskip" for certain pages in AWB? Rogal Dorn | Talk | NationDecember 28,2011 (ET)

New Signature Edit

Thanks for the tip MvP! I really appreciate it. I mentioned this on Bobo's talk page but I was messing around with my signature and was wondering if you knew how or if it were possible to implement this, "I kinda wanted to make the middle curved line straight and the back end also curved the opposite from the beginning curve but I gave up after messing around for a while in my sandbox."

Another question MvP Edit

Hey MvP I was wondering if you could help me find something. I'm looking for a way to display when a user was last active and/ also made their last edit. Similar to how it's displayed on the Special:ListUsers page. Along with that I was wondering if it were possible to display how active a user has been via over a period of time, say 1,3, 6 months.

The reason I'm asking is I was bored trying to think of a way of remembering active wiki contributors and ways to contact them whether they're super active or some of their cases their alliance's "go-to guy" for updating their wiki page(like how Mompson is NpO's guy and Keshav is Valhalla's guy). I wound up making this table in my Sandbox and I was looking for a way to include the above ideas into it but I couldn't find anything. Any insight/comments would be much appreciated MvP.    Rogal Dorn   talk    20:28, Monday, 9 January 2012 (EST)

Heya MvP, I left the same message on Bobo, Locke and Lol pie's tage pages but I just wanted to let you know, I was poking around and noticed Template:Citation needed, which I love, but I noticed there was no citation policy tailored to the CN wiki like our Vandalism policy is tailored to us but is superceding wikipedias Wikipedia:Vandalism policies generally. Anywho, I went ahead and created Cyber Nations Wiki:Citation and I was wondering if you could give it a look-over and see if anything could/should be added.

assistance por favor Edit

Heya MvP, I was playing around with multiple columns inside of columns but I kept running into a problem. I was doing all of this on this section of my sandbox. I was trying to get it so no matter how many lines are in a column the column headers are always even and once a new row starts all of those are even, does that make sense? Anywho, I was wondering if you knew some way of correcting the template to do what I was trying to get it to do. thanks MvP   RogalDorn  talk    01:08, Saturday, 11 February 2012 (EST)

Precisely good sir, I was trying to get "Blocs, MDoAP, MDP" to all be even regardless of how many entries are below them. and the same with the next row of "ODoAP, ODP, Protectorate". I hope that clarifies it a bit.   RogalDorn  talk    01:24, Saturday, 11 February 2012 (EST)

Map Edit

Hi (assuming you're al-Gaddafi on IRC? :P ), the map I want to be altered is this one. Basically, this map will be the framework of all maps to be created for the Post-Dissolution Sphere. Most of these boundary changes are simple (just merging RL countries into chunks or dividing some based on state/provincial borders or whatnot).

Here are the areas that need changing:

  1. Peru and Chile will be merged into one (thus removing that small white border between them).
  2. The state of Rio de Janeiro's borders should appear.
  3. Ireland will encompass all of Eire (which will basically merge the small Northern Ireland with the rest of Ireland.
  4. The Canadian province of Quebec's borders should appear.
  5. The Netherlands and Belgium will merge.
  6. Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Liechtenstein, and Poland will be merged into one (example maps seen here).
  7. South Ossetia's borders should appear.
  8. North Korea and South Korea will be merged into one.
  9. For the Pacific Empire, its water borders will remain the same (see here). Instead of the crude bold lines however, the water boundaries should be a gray line to denote the massive section. Its western water borders should be stopped along the eastern coast of Japan, down along China's water borders, down the South China Sea, then turn into U-shape just south of Vietnam to link Cambodia and the rest of the Indochinese states. Vietnam, the parts of China (including the island of Taiwan), and South Korea, and Japan should not be part of the Pacific Empire and are therefore independent from the Empire's boundaries. All other land boundaries (e.g., Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, East Timor, and Borneo will remain part of it. The Indochinese states will of course, all be merged into one. Iceland will not be part of the Empire and thus not included. The one in Antarctica still applies so the Pacific Empire's claim of Antarctica should be marked (do not include the water border for that section however).
  10. And last but not least Lesotho and Swaziland will be merged with South Africa.

This is all of the boundary changes I can think of! Anyways, you don't need to worry about time. I'd rather have you do it on your free time instead of having it screw up your real life schedule. If you have any questions, needs of elaboration, or concerns, drop a message at my talk page or if we're on IRC, we can chat about it. The file, when uploaded to the wiki, should be similar to this: File:PDS_Map.svg. Thanks!

Sincerely, JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 15:39, February 11, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, 1em looks a lot nicer. :D  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 20:32, Monday, 20 February 2012 (ET)

Re: Font Edit

No, it hasn't changed for me :S in any browser (except I can't test Chrome because it broked). I don't see anything in Preferences that could cause it. So I dunno why it's happening to you.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:09, Thursday, 15 March 2012 (ET)

Help with table alignment Edit

Hi Mako-chan~

I'm currently working on the format for Portal:Disparu (using Portal:Großgermania as a guide, of course :P), but I'm having difficulty with aligning the tables. The tables below the description for Disparu are shifted a few pixels to the right, and I've only managed to accomplish cell padding between tables in different columns (tables in the same column stick together). Finally, the link at the top-right area for purging the page is a few pixels to the right of the table below it (I'm not entirely sure how you aligned it in your own portal). If you could help me with alignment, I would really appreciate it~ :D Thanks in advance.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   00:57, Friday, 16 March 2012 (ET)

Danke~ How do you separate the tables in each column, though?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   01:15, Friday, 16 March 2012 (ET)
Thanks. Now I need to reverse engineer the random articles in Portal:Großgermania. :P
As for Merkel, she was used as a character by my predecessor state in CNRP (which was RP'd by a German). Both the character and the real-life Chancellor are scientists, but other than that I think they're meant to be different people. Real-life Merkel is, after all, right-wing, and probably wouldn't be caught dead leading a Communist country :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   01:46, Friday, 16 March 2012 (ET)
Can I directly use {{Großgermania/Random component}} for Portal:Disparu, or should I create a separate template?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   15:05, Friday, 16 March 2012 (ET)

imagemaps messed up Edit

MvP, halp! I see that our (and arrnea's) imagemaps are broken. Do you know what's wrong with them? I know no one physically editted them based off history... =/

Any assistance would be much appreciated good sir.   RogalDorn  talk    05:31, Friday, 16 March 2012 (EST)

Thanks MvP, I guess we shall have to endure :(   RogalDorn  talk    17:21, Friday, 16 March 2012 (EST)

RE: Hockey Night in Disparu Edit

I love it, Meshy. <3 Though, as you've pointed out, the CBC logo should probably be replaced by RD's own logo. :P If you don't mind, could you also change the maple leaves to fleur-de-lis, and if possible, change the text to "Soirée du hockey au Disparu"? (though if it's hard to change the text, Hockey Night in Disparu is pretty good as well :P)  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   14:41, Friday, 16 March 2012 (ET)

Danke~ "Au" makes more sense than "du", I think. Anyways, if changing the text is too hard, there's no need to stress yourself out over this. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   15:00, Friday, 16 March 2012 (ET)
I love it Meshy~ <3 Thank you so much ! :D  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   16:39, Friday, 16 March 2012 (ET)

RE: On the point... Edit

Thank you, Mako-chan. :) I was going for the second meaning. I should work on my choice of words a bit more. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   19:22, Monday, 2 April 2012 (ET)

RE: Jubilife / Férin Edit

Jubilife is still considered as the original capital of Disparu. I interpreted "...has exchanged ambassadors with the Federation of Disparu, opening an embassy in Jubilife" as Großgermania maintaining an embassy in wherever the Disparuean capital was, hence my edit to reflect the transfer of Disparu's capital to Férin. However, if you meant to say that Großgermania had originally opened its embassy at the old capital, then the old revision would indeed be more correct.

By the way, thank you for your corrections to Disparu and {{Largest Metropolitan Areas in Disparu}}. :) I have two questions about the former, though. First off, Chrome's English Canadian dictionary automatically corrects "enrollment" to "enrolment"; admittedly, I like the first one better, but does your edit mean that "enrollment" is more frequently spelled with two Ls in Canada? Secondly, I'm a bit confused about the use of the serial comma for "Eeyou Istchee, Jamésie, and Kativik". I think most style guidelines recommend against them, don't they?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   23:46, Saturday, 7 April 2012 (ET)

Alright then, thanks for the clarification.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   00:05, Sunday, 8 April 2012 (ET)
The new revision looks better. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   00:26, Sunday, 8 April 2012 (ET)
That was my plan originally, but I assumed that the new history section would only be as long as the old one. I wasn't expecting it to be this lengthy. :P I'll most likely move it to its own article once I'm done with my rewriting of Disparuean articles, so I'll have more time creating a summary and re-linking articles.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   00:42, Sunday, 8 April 2012 (ET)
Just keep an eye out for any history links I may have missed, or links that I accidentally redirected to History. :P Thanks, Mako-chan~
Out of curiosity, what do you think of the revised version of Disparuean history (compared to the old one)?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   01:41, Sunday, 8 April 2012 (ET)
Thank you so much, I'm glad you love it. :D For the "Tensions with Labrador" section, it will cover a diplomatic event that arose after Disparu blocked Labradorean attempts to annex its fallen ally, Manitoba. This led to a cold war between the two nations, finally ending with a Labradorean ultimatum to Disparu (that was unresolved since I left CNRP at that time :P).
As for the boundary dispute, I have to admit that I haven't really thought about it. I'd assume that, after the Canadian Crisis, the UN-controlled Canadian government drew Labrador's boundaries at the current, actual boundary rather than the Quebec-recognized boundary during the negotiations on secession. The newly-founded Disparuean state would have also dropped its claims on those lands in order to prevent additional aggression from both Canada and Newfoundland. So Disparu would be recognizing the actual boundary rather than Quebec's claimed boundary.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   15:08, Sunday, 8 April 2012 (ET)

Special:BrokenRedirects Edit

I'm pretty sure you told me about this before and said it wasn't possible to fix, but since I've finished cleaning out several of the other cleanup pages (or did at one time) and am working on the others (very slowly), I want the broken redirects page to be equally clean. Would it work to change all of the ones that link to Wikipedia (or other Wikia sites) into soft redirects? Since they don't work as normal redirects anyway. And I dunno about the two that go to portals, that's obviously a Wikia bug due to it being a custom namespace. I'd be fine with those staying there (as Category:Categories stays on UncategorizedCategories and Main Page in UncategorizedPages), just want to reduce it enough that the screen isn't long enough to scroll. Bleh. Also you might want to archive this soon :P.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 17:38, Monday, 9 April 2012 (ET)
