Hello + Wiki business

Hi and pleased to meet you, I see you're continuing on MvP's and Locke's work as an admin, which is awesome. Anyway, recently I ran into some vandalism on the Disorder War page, since, it's coming from IP/anonymous users, perhaps a semi-protect might help curb this type of vandalism.  —   Imperator    talk    contribs     22:40, Saturday, 1 February 2014 (GMT +8)

I'm not Rogal, but done :P. Thanks for pointing that out.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 16:20, Saturday, 1 February 2014 (ET)
Thanks Bobogoobo. :)  —   Imperator    talk    contribs    21:55, Sunday, 2 February 2014 AWST
Thanks for catching that Bobo. I haven't been very active in CN since I moved back home. Also, nice to meet you Imperator! :) —  RogalDorn   06:24, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

SVG maker

Rudolph on IRC told me about a tool I hadn't heard of that convert images to SVG. It's implemented in Inkscape (Path-->Trace Bitmap, or Ctrl+Shift+B) with colors as well. It seems to have trouble being very accurate with most of the flags I've tried, though. Maybe you could try it on other things you want to vectorize and see how it does.  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 22:57, Friday, 7 February 2014 (ET)

By and large it's a piece of crap. I used it for some of my very early SVG experiments, but as you noted, its accuracy is scant. The colored version is even worse, because it creates one giant layer for each color, and overlays them on top of each other with holes for lower layers to show through, rather than only tracing the area that is actually a particular color. This is so particularly bad that if you open a file made this way in a web browser, you can see every color load in: because it inflates the file size while it's at it. Here's an example. Just sit and watch it load. Uguu. ~ vonPreuſ3en
Oh god... my eyes! —  RogalDorn   04:13, February 11, 2014 (UTC)
Hahaha. Was wondering why it lagged Inkscape to heck. Wonder if you could use that to make the equivalent of a GIF :P  Bobogoobo | Talk | Nation 20:48, Tuesday, 11 February 2014 (ET)

Hey there!

Query me on IRC sometime. I still can't access your forums, so I can't reply to your PM! ~ vonPreuſ3en

Oh shucks! sure thing! —  RogalDorn   03:46, February 26, 2014 (UTC)

image license

hey, what is the license for your pic (http://cybernations.wikia.com/wiki/File:Draco.jpg) can i use it? Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs) 19:58:04 April 13, 2014 (UTC)

It's not my picture but it doesn't have a license so feel free as far as I'm concerned. —  RogalDorn   21:46, April 13, 2014 (UTC)


Hey Rogal, when you have a moment could you please look at the NPOemperortimeline template and see if I updated that correctly? I think I might have missed something as even if I put Letum's reign in at 800 days it was still this tiny little compressed section on the end.

Thanks! -Imperial Empire (talk • contribs) 07:53, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

You did it correctly IE. The reason it stayed tiny is because the |nationage= parameter is a fixed amount of days with the {{Seniority}} template there. But the Seniority template there is what makes it stay up to date in real time along with the {{Seniority}} template on the reigning emperor's |days#= parameter. Cheers! —  RogalDorn   08:20, May 21, 2014 (UTC)


Thanks :) i'm gonna try and be little more proactive nowadays when I can King dope (talk • contribs) 17:49, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Category Stupid

Hey, I added the Defunct Department category to the Imperial Academy page, then I found out they weren't technically defunct so I need to undo that change, only I can't see a way of actually removing it. It doesn't appear on the right hand side in the editor when I edit the page, so I don't know where it's sitting to strip it. Can you take a look please and let me know how I can adjust that in future? Thanks! -- Imperial Empire (talk • contribs) 17:43, June 6, 2014 (UTC)

It seems to have been added by the defunct = yes tag in the infobox. Changing that to 'no' fixed it. ~ vonPreuſ3en
Thanks for fixing that MvP, good to see you still around. -- Imperial Empire (talk • contribs) 17:57, June 6, 2014 (UTC)
No problem. I like to lurk :3 ~ vonPreuſ3en

Delete request

Hey Rogal, could you delete this page please? http://cybernations.wikia.com/wiki/The_Dove%27s_Wing?cb=1355

We (the GPA) are revising our wiki pages, and that has been marked for deletion because the Dove's Wing only had two issues.

Thank you :) CloudSpirit (talk • contribs) 15:33, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

House Sitter Guard

Can you please fix the House Sitter Guard article so that the main title is "House Sitter Guard of the New Pacific Order" rather than "House-Sitter Guard of the New Pacific Order" so the hyphen is removed? Thanks! -- Imperial Empire (talk • contribs) 07:37, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

Heya IE, sorry it took a bit, done though! :) —  RogalDorn   04:51, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Rogal! -- Imperial Empire (talk • contribs) 14:03, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

Re:Still lurking eh?

Yeah, I come by to visit every so often--just to see if anything new happens or there's vandalism and no one spot it yet. Looking back at my old articles and pages, I admit I'm cringing... Aside from that, glad to see you're still working hard as admin! :) JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 00:28, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

Hehe, why are you cringing at your old work? Do you ever miss CN? —  RogalDorn   07:03, July 1, 2014 (UTC)
I looked at how naïve I was and the glaring inconsistencies/contradictions my RP often had. I don't want to go into too much details on what specifically hit me hard at home but things like New Disparu (and the situation that followed with Pikachurin as a result of the article) or this horribly named article: the Jihad War. Also, the reason I moved my user page to a subset is because how horrible it looks (now I know why Bobogoobo said mines wasn't aesthetically pleasing) and the content on it wasn't so great either. Typical of what a middle schooler would have done though. (Not implying I'm anymore mature now.)
Although, I don't RP anymore, it has left me politically active (I'm now a "pragmatic" libertarian) so this definitely left an impact on me. I miss the people from CN (I am still on contact with some outside the community) but the game? Not at all. Busy in real life and lack of interest to return CN are the main reasons why I haven't shown up again at NPO :p Time will tell though. JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 16:02, July 5, 2014 (UTC)


How are you? I stopped playing CN for a while, but I have a new CyberNations account now. :) Happy65 Talk NAO 13:11, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Happy, what are you up to now that you're back in CN? Where did you wind up? Or did you remake NAO? —  RogalDorn   07:03, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

I made a new nation and I'm a member of NATO. Happy65 Talk NAO 15:36, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

Trade Confusion

Hey, I just wanted to know to point out that my cousin and I can't trade because it says it may be the same account, even though all he did was log into CN from my computer. I get why it did it, I just want to know if you could fit it, since we're not obviously not the same person. thanks!(: If you need any information just let me know!

Sorry, I have zero control over anything in-game in CyberNations. I'm just an administrator on the CyberNations Wiki. You should take a look at the Moderation section (and subforums) of the CyberNations forums. Best of luck Scottie. —  RogalDorn   07:03, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

War Names

I saw the dispute on the Riot War talk page about naming conventions, and was wondering if it would be better to go to a template style as a provisional naming convention, kind of like how RL wiki names things like natural disasters (see: 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak). Use the names of the initial blocs/alliances on each side, with a numeric (2nd, 3rd, 4th) or year number if that article already exists. Each alliance's name for the conflict could be included elsewhere in the article.

For example, this would be the AZTEC-Riot Society War. If that had happened before, you could either call it the 2nd AZTEC-Riot Society War, or the 2014 AZTEC-Riot Society War.

The only exception I see is for global wars, where we might want to go with 11th Global War or July 2014 Global War as a provisional name.

This is a great idea. Isn't that how it mostly happens? Should be the standard. Walsh the Beloved (talk • contribs) 02:44, July 5, 2014 (UTC)
What would happen though if the sides weren't simply AZTEC and Riot Society, for example but included forces such as let's say (just out of the blue) Screaming Red Asses and The Imperial Order? The naming convention being proposed might not be the best for reflecting that and the current standard might be the best one to keep. Franz Ferdinand, Conquerer of Micros (talk • contribs) 01:17, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
Go with the larger main force. Anything's better than the current standard of keeping the name chosen by whoever manages to write the article first. Gopherbashi  Sanction Race Updater   03:06, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

Gopher has a great point. After all, this is a "simulation" game, so we really need to have times to be serious, and the not-so-serious ones, like alliance names. Realistic war names will make a lot of sense, and it is different from just choosing a name for a comedy movie. This has to have a standard, and then it can get to the point of "if there is an alternate name", use that. for example, let's say NPO and FAN are in war, just for example. It would be something like "1st AZTEC-Riot Society War". You would only state the sides that started the war, not the others that joined. Then, if a name became appropriate, a name would be determined by the general public. Rmoquin, aka Knights111 the Red. 11:53:23 July 6, 2014

Gotcha guys :P moved it to AZTEC-Riot Society War. Regarding the "2nd ... War" there's been a few times where that has been the name of a war, like Second NoR-LSF War. —  RogalDorn   22:51, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

NPO Flag description

/appears out of thin air

Hi, RogalDorn, snooping by this wiki as always, I took note of your indefinite blocking of this particular anon. Seeing his/her edit, what he/she actually did is, heraldically correct, the description he did merely describes the flag of NPO correctly as it would in heraldry. A "Gyronny" accurately describes the flag's design scheme (dividing the flag up into eight triangular pieces). "Azure" and "sable" are the proper names of the colors "blue" and black" respectively. Likewise, "or" means "gold". The description "Gyronny sable and azure, a five-pointed star Or" appears on the unaltered edit although it's inserted in the blazons parameter which does not appear on the final template table itself. I understand that the page itself should only be updated by NPO members but I believe that the edit was done in good faith and not an act of premeditated and intentional vandalism. JustinVuong | Talk | Nation 14:16, October 19, 2014 (UTC)

/appears out of thick air
Perhaps that template just needs a blazon parameter anyway. Awesome.gif (Also, hai Justin :3) ~ vonPreuſ3en
