Crazy man, or what?

Did you see this? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 19:12, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm seeing it now. “There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.” Just forgive him/her... --Belea2008 22:13, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Pending user

A Tim Veltkamp just went on the #wiki IRC today asking for his account to be approved. He says he's been waiting for 4 days now. Just letting you know on his behalf. --VSkyzv 03:24, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Editing templates

Hello! I just tried to edit a template, that I edited after heivoll created it. I have a lot of wiki-editing experience, so I know what I'm doing, as I've done about 3000 edits on the Norwegian wikipedia and is a patroller over there. I would like to know if there's any possibility I can get access to creating templates? I want to create some navboxes, for Norway, Political Parties in Norway and so on. Thanks --KristofferAG Icon-Norway.pngwhisper 16:12, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Done. --Belea2008 19:14, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
I really appreciate it. Thanks! KristofferAG Icon-Norway.pngwhisper 20:10, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

National goals

Dear Belea, I have been working on national goals updates that you mentioned in December, I hope that you like all changes (I have removed the info from some data, updated it on others, create it on some other...). This is the list of changes, so please review it when you will catch the time:

P.s. I see that you put a new/old section (Idea) to my talk page - I will proceed with it when I catch the time. ;)
P.p.s. I am very sad that you are going into retirement. :/ --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 17:12, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Well done! :awesome: --Belea2008 21:26, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Idea (I have to think about this one) --Belea2008 16:39, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

If this is still actual, I could review articles there and create them here if they are not here. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 19:46, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Yes, please; when you have time. It's nothing biggie. Happy New Year! --Belea2008 16:39, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Boring Andy strikes again

I really have to study, but this damn wiki is always more important... Some things that I have done today:--AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 14:14, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

All right. Thanks for the update! --Belea2008 14:20, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

3 new observations added below on --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 17:21, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

  • User:Lpcyu - delete her/him. 15 files added about RL International Court. Of course, 2 EP earned on eRepublic, and the citizen is dead. 1 article edited - where he put that 15 files on it. Terrible. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 17:21, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
  • User:Mohan Kumar - in a period from October 15 until November 7 uploaded more than 40 files. 90 % of them have deletion template from today... Oh yes, and 1 file edit - [1].
  • And now a big problem - Luziferis. MiniBill has already deleted Luziferis contributions. Just take a look on January 4, 2010 deleted articles. Most of them were blanked for no obvious reason. Is this an attempt to delete history or something else?
All right. Everything looks good to me. Let me know when you need me to "delete" accounts. --Belea2008 15:10, 3 February 2010 (UTC)


  • What happens with edits when you delete the user?

If you delete Lpcyu, his/her edit on one article will remain, write? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 17:21, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Edits remain. For more information, see the documentation of the extension: --Belea2008 15:10, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

New strike - March 11

Could you take a look at your contributions regarding files that are sysop protected. Thank you. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 14:58, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Done. Let me know if it is all right. --Belea2008 16:46, 22 March 2010 (UTC)


Hi! can we use monobook in this wiki?

monobook is a WikiBot that modifies failures automatically. -- AliRajabi 17:06, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Help me understand: do you need a WikiBot? If yes, please ask the approval of several SysOps (and one of them to be User:QJ Lincoln). --Belea2008 15:15, 3 February 2010 (UTC)


Is it intentional that you are not available on the chat ever since you said 'BBL - meeting' - over a week ago?--Quicksilver 12:08, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

I will be very busy with other responsibilities in the following months, thus not having as much time as before for talking with you or other citizens through unofficial channels. If you wish to say something important to me, you can leave me a message here and I will answer as soon as I will have more available time at my disposal. --Belea2008 15:15, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
I consider the unbanning of me as the single most important thing to me - and quite official too. I am asking you to deal with it. --Quicksilver 15:25, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
In that case, I would like to officially say good luck with the other projects that you are working on, Belea --Icon-Australia.png Timeoin|Say G'Day to Timeoin 15:58 January 03 2010 (UTC)
I officially asked the appeal to be discussed and me unbanned. It is not a private talk, but an official one. I understand being busy but after months of being banned I think it is reasonable to expect an answer instead of further months of delay. I tried to tell it to you in private chanels but you force me to do it here, publicily.--Quicksilver 09:49, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
So do not even answer to me any more. Well, what can I say...? Go and defend your damn game from me, who hasn't done anything against it. If it causes you joy... Quicksilver out. --Quicksilver 17:59, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

eRep Moderator

If a person would like to become moderator on eRepublik, is there some special procedure, or do admins choose someone who they believe that it is the "best" person for the job. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 17:14, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

The "application process" is "closed" at the moment. --Belea2008 17:34, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
LOL, I was wondering how did it worked previously, because I was planning to create a Moderator article. But thanks anyway. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 10:37, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
I will give you the information you need in a week or two. Good luck! --Belea2008 13:23, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
This "project" - providing public information regarding Game Moderators was put on hold a few weeks ago. I (we) have to analyze what and when information is to be made public and what the implications are. I will keep you updated. --Belea2008 16:48, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

New wiki accounts

Hi. We were thinking about making a team for the Persian wiki. There should be a few (at most 7 that I know of) people that have applied or are applying to create an account. Just wanted to give you a heads up. There ids are: Arash4WD, Dr Joe Antonio, hinrich boll, Ali Emami, moo the great, Ali Shahrouz Sotude, and Hamed_85. Thanks Gorgepir Flag of Iran talk to me - کاری باری؟ 13:22, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

All right. Let me know if any of them have issues with their Wiki accounts creation. --Belea2008 13:36, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Hi again. One member has still not been able to get his account details, Hinrich boll. He told me he has already applied for an account. Also two other Persian users asked me to see if there accounts are being made or not, Hectoor and Dr_H_Mirzaei. Thanks for all your help. Gorgepir Flag of Iran talk to me - کاری باری؟ 23:01, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Did all the persons from your list receive a Wiki account? --Belea2008 16:49, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

New insider article request

Dear Belea, sorry for bothering but I have a question that several people asked me... What will happen with their stock when new economic module will be implemented? Will the stock disappear? For example, Food company has 1500 food and 500 grain on stock... Will this dissapear when the new module will be implemented? As it wouldn't be correct to answer me here (I would have an advantage over other citizens), could you implement an answer in the next insider? Thank you for your time. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 08:52, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Another request. Can you write what will happen with iron and weapon department? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 15:21, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
And now, something completely different - does this request/questions help? As I am an eternal part of eCroatian community, I have received a lot of questions about modules. Could I create an article on Croatian that people can ask questions, and then what I do not know (what is not written in insiders) could you ask you here and if you can, you could write the answers in new insiders. What do you think about it? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 15:21, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Stocks - will be migrated - it will not be lost/it will not disappear. I'm not entitled to provide information how stocks will be migrated.
Iron will remain iron - no changes here.
Weapons will be migrated. I'm not entitled to provide information how.
"does this request/questions help?" - yes.
"Could I create an article on Croatian that people can ask questions" - yes. It would be more helpful if other citizens would gather these types of questions from their national communities. I cannot promise you that all answers will be answered on the spot, but we'll try to cover all the answers in the Insider or in the forum.
Keep me updated, please! --Belea2008 16:57, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

User account request

Could you see what happened with Lord Marlock request for user account. He tried to re-apply but with no success. Thank you. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 15:21, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Issue solved or not? --Belea2008 16:58, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Translation of eRepublik to Persian

Hi. I wanted to talk to an admin regarding an important issue, and Andycro suggested I bring it up with you. I was hoping to see if I could convince you to consider translating eRepublik (the game not the wiki) to Persian. I wrote up a letter on the suggestion forms here, where I have explained my main arguments. Just to reiterate them in case that letter is too long, I was hoping that eRepublik can be translated to Persian since Iranians do not speak and read English properly, and the upcoming changes will be (kinda) dramatic. I pointed out that around 10% of all clicks to eRepublick come from Iran, which is quite high in my opinion, and this game is one of the few outlets we have left to interact with others freely. I think that the upcoming module will provide a perfect timing for adding new languages, so maybe it is something to consider. I guess the main problem would be the formatting changes needed, but I think the technical staff can fix that if they want to.

Regarding the translations, we are still busy with the wiki, but I think we are almost finished with the main parts (the facts not the fiction part in the wiki), give or take a few pages. If you do consider translating eRepublik, you could use the translations in the wiki, or you could ask for more specific translations for upcoming features that I (or any of the other active Iranians in the wiki) will gladly help out with. Right now I am going through the pages to make sure all translations are consistent, but otherwise it is pretty much in an acceptable form.

I understand that you are quite busy, but this is very important for us and that is why I have wrote this for you. In any case, thank you for your time (I dont know if that means any sense in English) and good luck with all the changes. Sorry that this got longer than I had originally anticipated. Cheers! Gorgepir Flag of Iran talk to me - کاری باری؟ 20:45, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

No new languages will be added until the new economy/military modules are implemented. Limited resources. --Belea2008 17:15, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

User with no contributions

I recommend deletion of this users (they have no contributions and the citizen is either dead or banned - to some of them I have send PM and they answered that they agree with deletion:

Wiki account

An argentinian contributor told me about another one who requested a wiki account, around a week ago, but still can't access. You can see the discussion on my talk page, but it's in spanish. Do you now something about it, just it has take long, or there is something else?, thanks.--Icon-Chile.png Purohueso (talk if you want) 00:57, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Few questions

Hello Belea! I have wrote several articles about new modules, but as I was sick, I didn't catch the time to translate them, so hear are the question on which I do not have idea how to answer them:

  1. Work skill - Will there be option that a person transfer skill points from land to manu? For example, I have (andycro) land 3.4 and manu 15.55, will I be able to switch all of it into construcion?
  2. Formula for hitchance/critical hit? (honestly, war is not my department)
  3. What are hit boosters and how much will they cost?
  4. Will fights still have a timer of 24h? If not, can you be more specific about it?
  5. Would there be additional boosters for happiness? For example: watching movies for 3 G?
  6. Will there be a chance that we see our avatars while fighting as this was the case until now?
  7. Will people fight one on one against other citizens?
  8. How long will last houses, hospitals, weapons, etc? Will there be a formula? What is the min / max of the "durability time"?
  9. What will happen with the items that we have in our inventory?

If you have published some info in new insider articles, just put link to it, as I didn't have the time to read them. Also I have one question regarding current issue: Welcome message. What codes are correct for writing? Some presidents contact me that newspaper codes are not working correctly, especially for links. If you know the answer, I will add it to the article welcome message. Thank you Belea. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 18:20, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

That's a lot of questions. Just get back to me in 2-3 days and I'll tell you if I found the answers to the questions. --Belea2008 20:52, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
All of it will be revealed in due time. I'm not entitled to answer those questions. You'll have to wait for Insiders. --Belea2008 20:53, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

New users

Hi. Do you think you could stop adding new users for awhile so that we can get the citizen template fixed and proper documentation added? I am concerned we are just creating a bigger mess. --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 18:53, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

All right. Will do. The create account "queue" can hold requests for two weeks (thus we can wait until May 4 with the approvals). After that they are automatically denied. Let me know when I can continue with approvals. --Belea2008 18:56, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Engineer status

Dear Geo, May I please have engineer status? QJ Lincoln supports me in this.
Thanks, -- Wiki bureaucrat.png Daniel Dimow Talk B / C / P / S Icon-Bulgaria.png 22:51, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Banning people - what is happening?

Sorry Belea, I know that you are very busy these days, but I am boiling inside... Yesterday, my dear friend, Mr Dalibor, a minister in eCroatia, hardworker (created a lot of tutorials), always judging multies, was banned due to multi-accounts. Honestly, this is imposible... Why? Because he has no motiv to due that. As a minister he could still a great deal of gold (Croatian ministers have a great amount of money to spend) so multis for gold is not holding up... Multi for votes is again imposible, because his party (HLD) always supported him with votes (and we have around 300 members). And as it is said, same IP is not reason for ban. So, if he had multis as he was accused for, what did he get from them? This simply stinks. I have to tell you that great deal of people uses refferer link to ban people - simply thay register over it and when the reach level 6,7,8, they donate money to that refferer. You should explore that. I know that Admins usually do not give intel why person exactly got ban (only short explanation) but I am very interested in this case. Honestly, I am so sure that he is honest citizen that I am willing to receive perm ban if he is dishonest. Thank you for your time, dear Belea. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 12:00, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

And, if person gots ban while he is party presidents, his party should be closed? His party didn't close. :/--AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 12:01, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. I'll get back to you in a few days! --Belea2008 14:09, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
That account will remain suspended. --Belea2008 20:54, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject Military

I am afraid to say that I have my exam preparation for the next month, so I have not been able to contribute as much to the project as I wish. Plus my recent computer troubles :( Anyway, I do still think that there is a need to have a place to centralise discussion on the factors of the wars on the wiki, and I am still keeping an eye on the wars in eRepublik and on the wiki, however I just don't have the time anymore I'm afraid :( Still, if I am come back after the exams hopefully I will be able to make time! Warfare is still what draws me to eRepublik, and if I ever get my base map finished I will be back working on here hopefully as I was last summer. Thanks! --Martin23230 19:09, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks too. Good luck with the exams! --Belea2008 20:50, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

References Question

(No hurry to respond to this - I know you are very very busy). Just wanted to ask, regarding references: If a reference is of a Private Message, or IRC conversation, or even that Chat thing, how do we reference this? Is it acceptable to merely state that this was what the person said, or should screenshot evidence of the chatlog/Private Message, etc be given? Im trying to add evidence where I can, but when the primary source of evidence is of the people themselves, it seems somewhat difficult. Examples of what im taking about though, are Chukcha, and Vespasiano1981. --Icon-Australia.png Timeoin| Say G'Day 15:10, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
