Map software/Opera inquiry

Heya MvP. I was wondering if you know of any map software to adjust/ create boundaries/borders of countries on various political maps of the world. I thought I remembered that you've used one before, not sure why but I figure it's worth asking.

Also I messed around with Opera last week while looking for a new browser because Firefox is causing my computer to lag insanely bad when I open it. So.. back to Opera. I loved it minus when using google docs I noticed when I would select a cell it would show the selected box but it would encompass half of the actual cell I clicked on and half of the cell to the left. The further to the right in columns I go the worse the problem gets. A la column G is bad but column XX is insanely worse. Do you have any idea what could be causing that? I figure it's a shot in the dark but I saw you use Opera on your userbox and figured it is worth a shot. Thanks MvP!!    RogalDorn  talk    00:32, Friday, 13 April 2012 (EST)

Shucks! Looks like i will have to do the same with adjusting borders on maps and stuff. Not a huge deal. The Opera issue is more of a deal breaker because i do use google docs to store information on various things and have accessibility from virtually anywhere (including my phone >.> because i love stats so much unfortunately). Looks like I will have to stay with the Iron web browser :3. Thanks for the hasty reply as usual MvP!    RogalDorn  talk    05:42, Friday, 13 April 2012 (EST)

RE: Disparuean franc

Hi Meshy,

For the coins, I think I used Cambria, since it was similar to the font used on coins that I've seen, and I didn't want to use Times New Roman. :P Creating the coins themselves was pretty easy (more so than the banknotes): I just used the Emboss filter in Photoshop to get the 'raised' effect on the coins. You can probably do it in GIMP too, though as you can see here, that didn't really turn out well when I tried it.

My friend showed me that yesterday, thought he was just being random. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   16:58, Saturday, 14 April 2012 (ET)

Knowing your design skills, you definitely will. :D  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   17:28, Saturday, 14 April 2012 (ET)
Holy crap, that looks amazing! :D It's even better than the original. :P However, the circles along the edge don't blend in well with the rest of the coin; the rest of the coin looks really realistic though. Good work! :D  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   23:10, Saturday, 14 April 2012 (ET)
Now that I compare the two, my version looks more like a piece of cheese than an actual coin. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   23:13, Saturday, 14 April 2012 (ET)
Yeah, that was the effect I was trying to get. Now that you mention it though, the rivet design does look nice too.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   13:50, Sunday, 15 April 2012 (ET)
Don't worry, there's no need to; your version looks awesome as it is. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   14:21, Sunday, 15 April 2012 (ET)

I really like the stylized fleur-de-lis they used. Perhaps I should do something similar as well. :P  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   00:06, Saturday, 21 April 2012 (ET)

Something weird

Hi Meshy,

I'm looking at the medal table at the 2010 Olympics article. For some reason, there are only 26 nations listed on that table, even though there were 46 participants. Was there any reason we excluded Andorra, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Chicago and many others from the table? (see User:Pikachurin/Sandbox#Olympics for the medal count I used to make the table) O_o  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   17:38, Sunday, 15 April 2012 (ET)

Ah, alright then. Thanks for the clarification.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   17:49, Sunday, 15 April 2012 (ET)

Midwayan anthem

I have created a anthem for Midway that is not the International, and am trying to get it translated into as many nations as possible. If you know German, could you do a German translation for me? Here's a link to the lyrics I've thought of ([1]) - Zabuza825 (talk • contribs) 21:40, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

Whoops, I forgot that we closed much of our forums to the public after a group of Chinese people from the same place in China (yes, I tracked the IP's) tried to access it en-masse at the same time.
Well, here's the lyrics I have:
Long live Midway
Shining so brightly!
Midway, our fatherland.
Land of the brave,
Home of liberty.
Long live Midway!
It goes to the tune of the Russian song God Save the Tsar! (YouTube link), so if you could get it to that tune it would help cause I have UTAU and a UTAUloid that supposedly can sing in German. - Zabuza825 (talk • contribs) 07:32, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! You said the lyrics don't match the tune exactly, well it's because I originally made the song in Japanese then translated it into English, combined with the fact that I'm not much of a lyricist and the fact that the original song the tune was meant for is in Russian. And I actually don't mind you changing it up a bit, as a matter of fact I kinda expected it as a word-for-word translation doesn't always work. As for accuracy, as long as it's better than Google translate (which can sometimes give you BS translations) I'm happy.
Thank you very much! - Zabuza825 (talk • contribs) 10:06, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Aid Slots

Aid Efficiency is a better name anyway imo, thanks for that. Yeah using up/down/same would break the auto-percenting, I thought about it but couldn't find any way around it, other than possibly using JS (only thing with string functions >_> there needs to be a mega-language that can do everything :P) which isn't really worth it and I can't do anyway :P. I think it's good to include number of slots, because 900/1000 = 90% is more impressive than 90/100 = 90%, for example. I mainly just put in the auto-percent to make it easier to update (though it's not that hard just to copy-paste it anyway), so it's probably better to include the whole thing when you want to use up/down/same. I was thinking it might be better to put the aid efficiency below the rest of the stats so that it wouldn't look so awkward without the indicators. I was also thinking that if one did want to exclude the percentage but also put in indicators, I could make a numbered parameter that could be put next to it, but again, not really worth saving eight characters :P. And still wouldn't solve the inconvenience of having to look back at the page.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 23:13, Wednesday, 23 May 2012 (ET)

With the recent changes occurring in the Post-Dissolution Sphere, it is time for the world map to be updated again! :P Here are the changes that need to be made:

  1. The United States of JBR now comprises the all of the former US states of California, Nevada, and Arizona (no more pesky counties to worry about :P ) and the Mexican states of Baja California and Baja California Sur. The South American possessions are unaffected and as such, should remain intact.
  2. The addition of Bowasia means that there should be a change in the United States/Canada region. If working with the western borders is inconvenient (since they do not correspond with the RL borders of the area it runs through), the western borders should be adjusted to be the western borders of Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, and Manitoba. The rest of Bowasia should still be implemented (thereby wiping Quebec off the map :P ).
  3. The Pacific Empire has dissolved and as such, the sea borders should be scrapped as with the territory in Antarctica. The Indochinese states however, should remain the same (no need to get those borders back in).
  4. The addition of the Confederation of Greater Guinea requires the merging of the following countries: Guinea, Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, Benin, Togo, Gambia, Liberia, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Equatorial Guinea.
  5. Azawad is recognized by several prominent PDS states so its borders should be added to the map.

Also, once you finish the new map, could you update the JBRican map by using the PDS map instead (instead of the North American-focused globe map) since it is considerably bigger now to be featured on it?

Again, you don't need to rush yourself so take your time. Thanks in advance! :)

JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 06:05, June 19, 2012 (UTC)

Those "possessions" were more or less constituent states of the former Californian Union so when I did request that they would not appear on the world map--it's not a mistake. :D
Honestly, the roleplayer of Bowasia has not given enough information regarding its western boundaries and that map he made was a rough estimate. I would expect that the actual borders of Bowasia would be the one I made up (based off of the RL US/Canadian borders) or running roughly along the Mississippi River. However, since the territory between JBR and Bowasia is stateless anyways, it doesn't matter (I guess Bowasia can have more land :P ) so it'll be alright I guess.
And as for the Senegal issue, I think it was left out on accident (I copied all the countries the roleplayer claimed on his application) and I'd assume it is part of Guinea. If there's anymore issues, let me know! :P JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 00:06, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch! :D JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 20:02, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. Bowasia has since ceded it's Canadian territories in a OOC change. Could you update the PDS world map to reflect this? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Bowwow828 (talk • contribs) 12:20, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
Hello this is Bowwow from PDS. Since the re-boot we finally got our borders in order (hey that rhymes) and we need a map to illustrate it and you're the man for the job. Here are the details: The United States of JBR's borders are just the U.S. states of California, Nevada, and Arizona merged. Bowasia's borders are all the states up to the Mississippi River plus the states of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana. The country of Antioquia includes Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela merged into one. And finally the Union of Midway includes the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands,Hawaii, and the Johnston Atoll (although no real changes have to be made to illustrate that.) We are extremely grateful for your work and we'd like to let you know that there is no rush, take as much time as you need. If you have any questions, feel free to ask Justin or I. Again thank you very much. Bowwow828 (talk • contribs) 02:32, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

hmm, brazil and Uruguay are combined together, which make the Hispanic Republic, also, most of the world is unclaimed, because it is in anarchy. so yes i highly suggest you color the countries for no confusion, and put the Anarchied territories into red. the USA includes the Lower 48, Alaska, Hawaii, and the U.S territories of Puerto Rico. this is kinda like the PDS map, where there are no names showing the countries. if you need anymore questions let me know :D Chao101 (talk • contribs) 16:45, September 29, 2012 (UTC)

Map Update

/silently creeps into CN Wiki's backdoor
Hi! Long time no see. I've come back yet again looking for an updated map .__.

Ever since PDS got rebooted, the maps have changed a fair bit but for now, my concern for that map is nothing important. No, instead, I need to update the map for the new version of the JBRican States.

The new JBRican States has been stripped down to just the former states of California, Nevada, and Arizona. No more Baja California, Peru, Chile, Rio anymore ;~;

Anyhow, since JBR is much, much smaller now, instead of placing JBR on globe, the map should focus closer into the JBRican States. I would like the map to show the states of JBR. So for the first map, the JBRican States will be updated with its new borders (I'm assuming it's a piece of cake for you.) The second map however will use the same said map except now showing the states within JBR. This I expect from it of course, is pretty difficult. Here's what you should do if you're willing to do this.

Reference list: CA counties; AZ counties; NV counties

  1. Merge the northern Californian counties of Del Norte, Siskiyou, Modoc, Humboldt, Trinity, Shasta, and Lassen as one entity.
  2. Merge the counties of Mendocino, Tehama, Plumas, Sonoma, Lake, Glenn, Butte, Sierra, Colusa, Yuba, Nevada, Placer, Sutter, Yolo, Napa and Sonoma.
  3. Merge the counties of Marin, Solano, Sacramento, El Dorado, Alpine, and Amador.
  4. Merge the Californian counties of Contra Costa, San Joaquin County, San Joaquin, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Mono, and the Nevadan counties of Mineral and Esmeralda.
  5. Merge the counties of San Fransisco, San Mateo, and Santa Cruz.
  6. Merge the counties of Alameda, Stanislaus, Santa Clara, Mariposa, Merced, San Benito, and Madera.
  7. Merge the counties of Monterey, Fresno, Kings, Tulare, and Independence.
  8. Merge the counties of San Luis Obispo, Kern, and Santa Barbara.
  9. Merge the counties of Ventura and Los Angles.
  10. Merge the counties of Riverside and San Bernadino.
  11. Leave Orange and San Diego alone.
  12. Merge the Californian county of Imperial and the Arizonan county of Yuma.
  13. Merge the Arizonan counties of La Paz and Mariposa.
  14. Merge Pima, Santa Cruz, and Cochise.
  15. Merge Pinal, Graham, Greenlee and Gila.
  16. Merge Yavapai and Coconino.
  17. Merge Navajo and Apache.
  18. Merge the Nevadan counties of Wash, Humboldt, Elko, and Pershing.
  19. Merge Storey, Carson, Douglas, and Lyon.
  20. Merge Churchill, Lander, Eureka, and White Pine.
  21. Finally, merge Nye, Clark, and Lincoln.

I hope you're up for the job as I know you done well the previous times! ^_^ If you have questions or concerns, notify me!

Also, when you upload the maps, could you please upload them at the PDS wiki instead of here?

Thank you in advance!~ .o.

You guys are making an RP that has nothing to do with anything else except RL up to a point and you don't even play CN anymore, so there's no connection.

Well, I don't generally mind making maps. However, I've been pretty busy lately, so while I don't mind making it, you'll have to join the waiting list. With some luck I'd be able to get started on it by week-end, but depending on my schedule IRL, it might get pushed back until Thanksgiving or thereabouts. If that kind of a timeframe won't be an issue, then I don't see any particular issues with doing it.   Michael von Preußen | talk
I'm fine with waiting and for the record, I don't know who else to refer to (subject to change mayhaps?) :v I myself have a busy schedule (damn high school and after-school commitments) so I understand that.

hay again mike

We need a new map mike, because we added more countries to our community. If you could make us one, i would really appreciate it ;). Here is the list of the countries:


Ampersand (Which includes Majority of Australia (by Ampersand) Western Solomon Islands (by Ampersand)) Canada


Cuba (With a non-communist government)



European Union

Greater Korean Republic (With western japan and taiwan)

Hispanic Republic (With no borders changed)












South Sudan

United States.

Thanks for the help mike, notify me when the map is ready :) Chao101 (talk • contribs) 12:43, December 8, 2012 (UTC)


Ampersand: For first let's say that It has have Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, northern Australia (to be exact, the boundary is south of Exmouth, Ashburton, East Pilbara, Central Desert, Boulia, Winton, Flinders, Etheridge, Tablelands, and Cassowary),Papua New Guinea, and Western & Choiseul Province of Solomon Islands under control.

China: China does not have Japan anymore. It is the way it was before.

Vietnam: Same as china, same borders.

India: it includes everything that British India had execpt for Burma (or myanmar). (Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka)

Also add Indonesia, which has the same islands before, and Borneo still has borders.

RE: Thanks~

No problem, Meshy. :P

I'm doing pretty good, though as my activity here and the Clannad Wiki can attest, I'm as inactive as ever. :P Next month will mark the fourth year I've been playing CN, so I guess that's interesting.

How have you been?  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   00:57, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 (ET)

Good luck with that then. :P I'm glad that you're still around though! :D Some of the familiar faces I knew two years ago seem to have disappeared, though a lot are still here one way or another.  Pikachurin   Talk • Contribs   01:19, Tuesday, 29 January 2013 (ET)

I hate WP even more now.

I'm not sure if you have seen Wikipedia:Notifications but i HATE that there is no opt-out for it. I abhor WP becoming more social media-esque. Yep, this is horseshit. Lol, just kind of venting here a little bit. :p   Rogal  talk   07:58,5/1/2013 (UTC)

That's not a social media thing, from what I can tell. It's about telling you when important things happen without you having to monitor a ton of pages all the time in case something happens. I like that kind of feature. Also, can't you just uncheck all the boxes to opt out? But yeah, it looks like Wikipedia knows what it's doing.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 04:07, Wednesday, 1 May 2013 (ET)
I mean it in regards to it notifies you of shit regardless of whether you want to or not, just like Facebook when people post shit on the wall or w/e and you dont care about seeing it or dont want those notifications. I don't care to know when an edit of mine has been reverted. I don't care about when my username is linked somewhere on WP, etc. Also, you can't opt out of the notifications,
As said above, we can potentially introduce an opt-out if there's strong user demand for it - but any opt-out would be temporary. Eventually, Echo will be here for all users in some form. Right now I think we'd probably do better focusing on ways to make talkpage notes more prominent; does anyone have any suggestions on that front?

Lame,   Rogal  talk   08:17,5/1/2013 (UTC)
I agree with both sides a bit here. On the one hand, it does reek of FB-style Notifications, just as Wikia has been experimenting with for a while. However, I think something in that quote might, in the long run, make it worthwhile: if it ends up helping talk pages flourish, that would be a good thing. If you haven't seen the annoying survey popup from Wikia that's been coming up now and then, you should check it out: it really makes it seem like Wikia's trying to do away with talk pages altogether, in favor of forums and article comments, and that's really about as dumb as it gets. If Echo saves Wikipedia from that fate by making talk pages more accessible, then it might be worth it anyway.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Idk, talk pages seem to get used plenty enough as is though. :3 But... if it does indeed keep WP using talk pages instead of going to the retarded direction of Wikia then that's okay. But I'm going to miss the OBOD! Now that was one hell of a notification. Especially handy, imo, for new people letting them know they have a message.   Rogal  talk   21:59,5/1/2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure, I can just see it getting ridiculous. Btw, here's what it looks like, linky.   Rogal  talk   06:22,5/2/2013 (UTC)
Ugh. Yeah, could probably be implemented in a way that looks more... wiki-ish. I mean, granted, Wikipedia's brand sort of went out the window when they abandoned Monobook, but my goodness, that looks like something off of VKontakte.   Michael von Preußen | talk
I found a rather interesting article that you might like MvP about the facebookification of Wikipedia. Literally if they do implement any of the last 3 I'm out, done with contributing to both the en wikipedia and commons.   Rogal  talk   07:17,5/2/2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Sigh... almost looks like Wikia's been their guinea pig <_<   Michael von Preußen | talk

Well, in the end, it's about the content. I've pretty much gotten used to Wikia's interface with some modifications of my own, and while I'm not looking forward to some of the changes they want to make, I'll get used to them. I just hope it actually helps improve content and the editing experience. I dunno, I guess I'll see what happens.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 06:23, Thursday, 2 May 2013 (ET)

Commons question!

So, I'm going through pictures that I have from the past couple years and seeing if any would be useful for WP articles right, well, I am in a bit of a pickle. I thought there would be something on Saudi Arabia's censorship of women but I can't find anything and I have a nice little picture that would be a perfect image to go alongside of it with Women's hair dye products with stickers covering their faces, but I can't find a use for it. I thought Censorship in Saudi Arabia would have been the place but apparently not. Then I went to try to find somewhere to upload it on commons and I can't find a good place either, do you have any ideas or suggestions? Oh, I did end up adding images to Wadi Hanifa and Masmak Castle though, so at least this isn't a total loss. :) Anywho, any assistance would be much abliged.   Rogal  talk   05:01,5/11/2013 (UTC)

What about Women's rights in Saudi Arabia? As for categories on Commons, perhaps Category:Women of Saudi Arabia or Category:Islam and women, though I'm less sure on these ideas.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Ah! yeah, that would make the most sense. Here's a link to the image if it helps, linky. I'm not even sure what to upload it as, title-wise, to be honest heh. Anywho, thanks for the speedy response as always MvP.   Rogal  talk   06:21,5/11/2013 (UTC)
Hah, yeah, I dunno. It does seem to fit more directly in with censorship than women's rights, but you're right, the censorship article as it stands wouldn't seem to have any place for it at all.   Michael von Preußen | talk
What's funny also is that all the arabic brands on the bottom shelves don't have stickers over the women's faces. But yeah, I think it would be a good image, but sadly there's no corresponding text for it to enhance. Perhaps I can find a wikipedian who contributes to this area and be like "hey, I have this image that relates to work you do but I don't know what to do with it, so here you go." :p   Rogal  talk   06:58,5/11/2013 (UTC)
Yet those are shoved to the bottom of the shelf, while the others are prominently displayed? It's just weird all around. Are you sure censoring the image is actually the point? I mean, it wouldn't surprise me, considering KSA's extreme conservatism, but given the others aren't being covered, I sorta half wondered if that particular brand wasn't just running some sort of promotional thing with perfume samples or something... but looking closer, they do appear to just be stuck on with Scotch tape. My brain is seriously having trouble trying to comprehend this level of WTF.
Anyway, your plan sounds pretty good. If all else fails, it'll sit on Commons until someone finds an appropriate use for it. :P   Michael von Preußen | talk
Yeah, uploading to Commons and leaving it there does sound like a swell idea. Good ole Saudi Arabia, where even western women have to obey the same rules as Saudi women xD.   Rogal  talk   15:36, May 11, 2013 (UTC)

Guess who's a rollbacker?

You are! Bobo and I made CN:Rollback after... a little bit of vandalism today. Also, I suggest adding this script to your global js so you get the "rollback all edits" button too. Cheers!   RogalDorn   06:22, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

Well, I thank the both of you for this! I'm not sure how effective I'll be at its purpose considering my total lack of presence here. But despair not!
Seriously, thanks! :D   Michael von Preußen | talk
No sweat :) If it helps you at some point in the future revert some vandalism here and there then it's an overall net positive for the wiki. Plus you already know how to use it. :D   RogalDorn   07:39, May 27, 2013 (UTC)


Hit me up on IRC, I may have found something up your alley, if you still enjoy converting images from bitmap to vector.   RogalDorn   05:06, June 8, 2013 (UTC)


Just in case you didn't know, this script does the same thing your personal script does; I figure using a central thing like that might be preferable since it'll be updated sooner if anything changes, though I suppose you might not want the additional load time and features. And while I'm on the topic, thanks for helping me get into coding and stuff those several years ago; it's clearly what I was meant to do. I think I forgot to tell you and Rogal, if you still actively edit wikis you may be interested in this script. The Oasis resistance lives on :P. (There are a bunch of other cool things on Dev too if you haven't browsed it lately).  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 23:32, Monday, 16 September 2013 (ET)

Awesome, thanks! I'll take a look at those, though quite honestly, I don't use Wikia enough that I'm entirely sure I'll end up using them (it took me months since the format changed to bother fixing my own script, as you can see :v).   Michael von Preußen | talk

I found the coolest color-hex website

Check this out mvp, linky. How freaking cool is this? Just plug in the hex-color you want and it gives shades, tones, tints, color schemes, hex conversions... It's so amazing! Jeez, I'm going to play with this some more.   RogalDorn   08:35, October 9, 2013 (UTC)

Well crap, there goes my next six hours. :P Thanks, this looks amazing! :D   Michael von Preußen | talk
No problemo! I knew you'd like it.   RogalDorn   08:49, October 9, 2013 (UTC)
Likin' the new signature, by the way! :3   Michael von Preußen | talk
Thank ya! I am liking how "crisp and clean" it looks. However, I was very indecisive on the font-color for "Rogal". It was down to these three variations.
  1.   RogalDorn  
  2.   RogalDorn  
  3.   RogalDorn  
I ultimately went with #2 but it still makes me cringe because I like how all of them look. Guh, now I want to change the blue to that orange. Damn you colorhexa!!!!   RogalDorn   09:03, October 9, 2013 (UTC)
Oooh, yes, I like the orange also, but the blue does look good. I agree on your choice of №2 over №1, though; the dark blue doesn't stand out enough against the grey. Between the blue and orange, though, I can see why you're split. I guess it depends on the overall tone you're going for: the blue looks more muted and conservative, while the orange stands out a lot more.   Michael von Preußen | talk
I wish there was some way to randomize which color it would give me each time I used it. Or do the blue on even days and orange on odd days. Something like that... so I could get the best of both worlds. :( Is something like that possible even?   RogalDorn   09:15, October 9, 2013 (UTC)
Certainly. It's very easy since we subst sigs here. See here for how I did it for a simplistic substituted sig, for example. As for color sites, I'm not good at picking colors, but this is another such site I've used a little.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 06:27, Wednesday, 9 October 2013 (ET)
Nicely done! Pseudo-random results could be achieved using something like {{rand}} (which has documentation on Wikipedia)—but if you do this, do make sure you mess around with it in a sandbox first to make sure you end up with little or no ugly code when you substitute your signature.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Bobo is amazing! diff link for MvP. I even went and made this my WP sig. :D   RogalDorn   02:34, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

I might have to have a redirect to my talk page to rectify that bastage or something.   RogalDorn   05:15, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

Wondering if you'd be willing to do something...

Hey MvP, so I finally decided to convert my imagemap on here over to en/commons and I can't find the original creator of my imagemap, not responding to in-game messages and I never see him on IRC anymore :( but could you revamp the image for my imagemap? I like how it looks aesthetically, could you flip it vertically essentially? So the two blue balls would be on the top? Because those will be the userpage / talk page links.

New format

left right
User page (en - commons)
Talk page (en - commons)
Sandbox Contribs (en - commons)
Workspace Edit Count (en - commons)
Storage Edit Analyzer
Image Gallery Usergroups (en - commons)
Awards Logs (en - commons)
Votes (AfD - RfA)

Damn, now I'm thinking about flipping/rotating it to be horizontal (with user/talk page on the top left) because then it would go nicely as a replacement for my header but I'm not sure how it would look horizontal, hrmm. grr! Anywho, if you'd be up to the task I'd greatly appreciate it but if not then no worries :) —  RogalDorn   18:05, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

Damnit, now I'm not sure about how to arrange it. I want to incorporate en and commons. I wonder... if I should just have parenthesis commons and the link for en just be "usergroups" and then (commons) be for the commons link. And I noticed before user/talk page wasn't consistent with the en and commons links. Hrmm! any thoughts on horizontal/vertical? Damn, "Edit Analyzer" or "Edit Analysis"? (link if it helps). —  RogalDorn   18:09, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

You could use an imagemap generator, not sure which ones are popular or work best but a Google search should bring them up.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 19:28, Thursday, 10 October 2013 (ET)
He'd still need the image itself, though. I use GIMP for generating image maps, by the way.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Rogal Tree Test.png
Well, firstly, I think the vertical orientation would look better if you keep it floating above your userboxes (à la commons), but better horizontal for en, since it can be put over top, or in place, of your header links. My initial thought for dealing with both en and commons links would have worked with this, because I thought about having two versions: one with en links, one with commons links, and each with a link that "crossed over" to the other project's user page. Unfortunately, the more thought I gave to this, the more I started disliking it, since you simply don't have the development on commons as you do on en (re sandbox, workspace, storage, &c.). It could still be done, and just have those links be common to both of them and point to en, but the crossover may become confusing.
I'm also not certain how text placement would work horizontally; I believe I had initially tried to do so with File:MvP nav 2.png, but it just never worked out.
As you say you like the current æsthetics, I'm loath to change the format, but I feel it might work better if you do so. Something like one at the side, perhaps?   Michael von Preußen | talk
Holy crap MvP! Those are awesome. Yeah after I thought about it I have no idea how it would look good if there was a horizontal imagemap, and even then monitor size would affect it, like folks with tiny monitors etc. Bleh, but anywho... I think I like the one on the right more, I hope it's not too difficult to understand for folks which one is en and which is commons. Maybe "Commons" floating down in the bottom left with orange text and "English Wikipedia" or some such in blue in the top right? Would that even look normal? But, if you think there's a better format or if you want to run new ones by me I certainly won't stop you. I just thought that keeping the current format would save you time is all. :3 I do like the blue, orange, black coloration ;) —  RogalDorn   00:15, October 11, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay getting back to you; I'mma try a few things out to see if I can't make it both more obvious which is which, and more visually appealing. I like the second one as well, but I'm not currently liking how the text for the shared labels is centered (which it sort of has to be) but the text in the same visual "column" for the user and talk pages is aligned differently: good idea in theory, to line up to the buttons they label, but bad in practice, I think. Anyway, will get back to you when I've made some progress.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Yeah, I see what you're saying. It makes sense to me. Oh yeah, I'm not in a rush or anything, feel free to take as much time as you'd like. Thanks again for the help! —  RogalDorn   18:49, October 11, 2013 (UTC)
Also, I was thinking and on our imagemaps we use the words as the links but in this since there would be shared words presumably (at least so far) the dots/buttons would have to be the links. However, if we continue down this route would there be a way to make the dots stand out more to make it "known" visually somehow that the dots themselves are where the links are? But, if your changes won't use this method then just ignore this message. :p —  RogalDorn   18:54, October 11, 2013 (UTC)
Hmm, damn. I hadn't even thought of that; my mind was sort of ignoring the fact the whole words were linked. Yeah, the dots might not be enough area anyway. That's quite a conundrum; I'll have to give that some thought. In the meantime, I am in no way whatsoever attempting to replicate this in pure HTML.   Michael von Preußen | talk

shiny button

animated buttons

Just brainstorming here but what would you think about thinning out the "lines" a bit or make the buttons bigger and/or appear more shiny, or hell, maybe if you're feeling frisky and think it would work make the image a gif and the buttons animated and seem clickable? O.o I like the sigs you're playing with very nifty. :D —  RogalDorn   20:13, October 11, 2013 (UTC)
Oh man, all the things I could do if there was a way to add pseudo-elements to inline style declarations. Animation would probably just end up being annoying, but it'd be so nice to be able to get a different color, or even a shadow or something similar to the buttons in the animated image you linked, just when someone hovers over one! Unfortunately, can't be done without more extensive CSS access, which obviously Wikimedia doesn't offer. Anyway, I'll keep playing with it over the next while and see if I can come up with anything that I feel works well. And, 'Thanks!' re sigs!   Michael von Preußen | talk

{{outdent}} Uploaded a new version, seen above. I've moved the label text to the outside to avoid the visual imbalance and given the circles a border (currently white for simplicity, but it would be transparent in the final version so you'd see whatever color was behind the image). Not sure how I feel about it, but it certainly highlights the circles as links more. Thoughts?   Michael von Preußen | talk

Yeah, I think it's a step in the right direction. Certainly highlights the buttons more. Do you think that if the lines were thinned out it would make the buttons more... button-y? If that makes sense. I got really bored after work and drew some ideas in paint, not sure if they help at all but they're just ideas after all.
Now that you see I'm the master of ms paint.... xD What do you think of the vertical "commons" and "en wikipedia" in orange/blue instead of putting "commons" and "english wikipedia" for the user pages? I figure that them being on the sides of the image vertically in those colors is an obvious "legend" in regards to what the two colors represent. —  RogalDorn   03:24, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Rest assured I have not forgotten about this, and will post a more useful response soon.   Michael von Preußen | talk
No worries mvp, I'm in no rush. :) —  RogalDorn   01:22, October 16, 2013 (UTC)
Updated with two more versions. Still didn't adjust the text, since I'm more worried about getting button design working at the moment.   Michael von Preußen | talk
Sorry for the late reply mvp. I like the buttons on the left :) —  RogalDorn   03:08, October 19, 2013 (UTC)
And another tardy reply from me. Added label text, correcting 'User Page' text. Attempted to add some fanciness, and I think it works, but I'll leave that to your judgment. My original attempt had the label lines in the same orange and blue as the labels themselves, which looked good, but I think the black adds a bit more contrast with the label text.   Michael von Preußen | talk
O.o I love it MvP! Is there anything else that you wanted to tweak on it or is it useable as is? :D:D Thanks a million! /hugs! —  RogalDorn   02:36, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

{{outdent}} Most welcome! I'll change the white borders to transparent now, and build you a map. If anything needs to be tweaked once you implement it, just let me know. ~ vonPreuſ3en

Okay, slight problem. Somehow, in all of this, neither of us noticed I'd forgotten to include a link to your image gallery, which I presume you intend to be to Special:ListFiles. This means it should be on the Commons side, but it raises a question of where it would look better: above Contribs or below Logs, in the latter case, pushing the user and talk page links down. I think the latter is the better case, since it will keep the text to the left of the buttons all together, but I figure I'll wait to hear back from you both about placement and to confirm the link before I implement it. Sorry for the continued delays! >.< ~ vonPreuſ3en
I was going to have Image gallery link to wikipedia:User:Dainomite/image_gallery on EN and I'm going to make something similar on Commons so I don't have a cluttered userpage there. I just dont like how the Special page isn't very much of a gallery and instead lists files one by one. and if you upload a new variation of a file then that's thrown in there too, idk. I agree with it going below Logs too. Also, loving the new sig you settled on! Also also... I'm not sure how much you edit or mess around with things on WP but I was just showed this yesterday wikipedia:User:Scottywong/diffconverter and it's the coolest/most nifty script I've ever seen! Can't wait to see the finished product mvp! <3 —  RogalDorn   18:48, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Alright, well, if you're going to do one on each, I can just add another dual-buttoned label in the middle. Working on that now, but have to start a ways back, so it may take a while.
I'm not certain I'm going to keep my new signature. While I do like it, unfortunately, Internet Explorer does not. Changing the font to Times New Roman helps, but it still doesn't line up properly. Ah, IE, my old nemesis. ~ vonPreuſ3en

Image map at right should work (once the image is uploaded, that is), but I've used your username here in case your Wikimedia persona is suprsekrit or something. Just find/replace "RogalDorn". Of course, you may want to change the alt text, too! Unfortunately, there's no way to add title text to the non-linked portions of the image, which I was going to use to add something to tell dumb people where the links were. You could add a blank link to the end like rect 0 0 627 923 [[#|The links are on the buttons, spanky!]]—but unfortunately, this adds a pointer as well, which looks silly.
This map can be used on both Commons and Wikipedia, but since Commons for some inexplicable reason violates its own interwiki policy by ignoring links to commons:, I had to hack my way around it, which makes for some messy code. No one'll see it, but you may decide you prefer to edit it to have separate maps for each site. ~ vonPreuſ3en
Wow, IE ruins both of our lives. When I'm at various work computers my signature becomes a rectangle and the font is Times New Roman. Damn IE!!!!! Mreh, I don't really mind if folks know my WP username. My wikia one is right on my WP userpage :p. I was thinking something similar too to tell folks to click the buttons not the names but that pointer point (haha) makes it futile I guess. Was there anything else you wanted to tweak on it or is it good to upload to commons as is? Thank you so much for all your hard work MvP. I can't thank you enough. <3 —  RogalDorn   23:27, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Nope, should be good to use as-is. You're most welcome! :) ~ vonPreuſ3en
Sounds good. I uploaded it to Commons. Would you mind picking the best PD template? Apparently there's no generic one that I see... —  RogalDorn   00:34, October 29, 2013 (UTC)
I keep getting this odd "title invalid in line 7" error when I'm trying to save the imagemap so it's not displaying right... However, a user I know who has an imagemap on WP wikipedia:user:Anna Frodesiak had this linked in a comment on her userpage https://toolserver.org/~dapete/ImageMapEdit/ImageMapEdit.html which is just nifty as hell. —  RogalDorn   00:42, October 29, 2013 (UTC)
Looks like you got it working; I'm not sure what the issue was. Do note however that as you've currently got it set up (I presume with the help of the linked editor), the links are exceptionally larger than the buttons themselves. Not sure if this is on purpose or not (or even what's happening to cause it, since the third parameter should be the radius, which is lower on yours than in my original code), but you can always scale it back if need be.
I honestly have no idea what the most appropriate PD template is, but I figure the supplied one (ineligible due to being nothing but simple geometry and text) will work. If anyone gives you any grief over it, feel free to change it to {{PD-author|[[wikia:cybernations:User:Michael von Preußen|Michael von Preußen]]}} or similar. ~ vonPreuſ3en
I see the issue; you uploaded a scaled-down version of the image. My map was designed to work with the full size, since for some reason the image map extension uses coordinates from the original size, not from the size you actually specify in the map. ~ vonPreuſ3en

Shit, I should've known I mucked something up when the given coordinates weren't matching up right. I saw an IP change the permission to PD-ineligible, I'm not sure if that was you or not but I just plugged in the one you replied with here. —  RogalDorn   21:19, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm an admin over on the Conworlds wiki, and a former player of Cyber Nations (Legion member), and was wondering if I could get some admin-level info on User:Aca94. He's been a problem back on the Conworlds wiki (not categorizing his articles, refusing to heed warnings, generally being a nuisance), and seeing as you were responsible for banning him here, I was hoping to get a brief history on him and his actions here. Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 23:47, November 9, 2013 (UTC)

I see. Aca94 was indeed given his own wiki which is in Serbian, but he doesn't use it. I suppose it has more to do with the fact that he wouldn't have an audience to view it. Looking at your history with him, you did your best and I commend you for it. Thank you very much for the details. I'll let the admins back on my wiki know about it.

Heya mvp, I just wanted to drop by and let you know that I started a discussion at the Village Pump about the addition of CN:LEAD to CN:STYLE. Don't mind me, I'm just canvassing :p Hope to see you there, —  RogalDorn   03:18, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Notice of discussion at CN:PUMP

Hey Michael von Preußen, I just wanted to drop by and let you know that I started a discussion at the Village Pump about Alliances with multiple incarnations and the default alliance name. —  RogalDorn   22:29, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

heyo mvp

I can't seem to upload the rest of these svg files from Commons https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Tango_project/smilies . It says something about html not allowed. Does that make any sense to you? I've uploaded a couple to for Template:smiley (shortcut {{s}}). That way when we don't have to go searching for emotes, we can just do {{s|:D}} Face-grin.svg  RogalDorn   06:57, November 29, 2014 (UTC)

Can you give me an example of one in particular you're having trouble uploading? I've given a few of them a brief lookover and can't see what the problem would be, so perhaps if I can narrow in on one I'll be able to identify the issue. ~ vonPreuſ3en
Surely, it's giving me the error Files of the MIME type "text/html" are not allowed to be uploaded when I try to upload commons:File:Face-sad.svg. Face-confused.svg  RogalDorn   08:52, November 29, 2014 (UTC)
It worked fine for me, so I honestly have no idea what the issue is. If you have trouble with any others, let me know and I'll try them. ~ vonPreuſ3en
Arg! I wonder why it wasn't letting me. bastage. —  RogalDorn   10:51, November 29, 2014 (UTC)

Page deletion?

Hello, Michael von Preussen! I know it's been a long while since I last spoke to (you might not even remember me and that's ok--haha) but I was wondering if there was a way I could delete some of my old pages on the Cyber Nations wikia? I don't want to delete all of them, but I would like to remove some of my articles I created as "New Arundel."

Get back to me whenever you can. And thanks!
