Welcome to eRepublik Official Wiki! We hope your contributions will help the Wiki grow in quality and content. One of the best places to start is with your own autobiography, or citizen page. To start, we have created this helpful tutorial that will show you some of the wiki basics: CPT.
Again, welcome and have fun! Admin 05:29, 2 February 2009 (PST)

Pages moved

These pages [1] and [2] have been moved. If this is for a religion it must follow the eRepublik:Religion policy. Other than that, it seems to be talking about an outsider forum, this wiki is for the game eRepublik, not the forums. If you have any questions, please ask.--QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 22:13, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Question

Please answer here Talk:The King Stephen I Art Gallery --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 20:45, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Done with Sandbox?

Hi, if you are finished with your sandbox User:John F Baker/Test Template Sandbox please place a deletion template on it. It is currently appearing in the Category:Citizens in user namespace which we are trying to clear. Thanks! --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 00:17, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Added < pre > to it for later use :) -- John F Baker 12:57, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

^_^ Thanks a bunch John F Baker 17:17, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Dear Jan, your reward for August should be recieved on John F Baker account. Congratulations and sorry for the delay. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 18:30, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
No problem, thanks a bunch :) -- John F Baker 18:31, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Redirects

Redirects like the ones I deleted encourage people to spell things wrong. If things are misspelled, then they need to be fixed. --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 14:09, 16 September 2010 (UTC)


Hello Jan... Look, there are a lot of double redirects and crazy redirects that are killing me because they don't have any sense. Can I post some of them here so that we came to some agreement how some things would be named so we won't have to moved them and create additional redirects? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 18:45, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Sure, I'm all for less confusing redirects - I just DO see the point in having some of them :) - Icon-UK.png John F Baker Icon-South Africa.png talk/British Army librarian 19:16, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
You don't have to answer on both talk pages, I monitor everything! :D OK, so the list of redirects that bother me and I think that you could assist me is the following:

And there are several redirects that point to similar pages... The thing that I want to do is that we make an agreement how will we proceed, with which naming procedure... Similar was with Congress of country situation... It was named differently by each country and it was very confusing to everyone, editors and readers. So I propose that we use one same naming procedure for everyone... Which do you think that is better?

  • Ministry of Defence/Country
  • Country Ministry of Defence
  • Ministry of Defence (Country)

If you think that it is better that we discuss this in the bar I can add another debate there! :D --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 09:43, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

While I am waiting for your response on above topic, I have also found some redirects from your userspace... Can I remove them or are you testing something? Link to the list of all your pages - redirects are italic (if the link doesn't work the go to the Special Pages and choose [3] with user namespace and John F Baker starting page.) --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 13:48, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

I very much prefer the Country Ministry of Defence (and other governmental departments, if there are more than one countries that use them!) :)
On the subject my redirects O.O I'll have a look and clean those up + add delete templates now! - Icon-UK.png John F Baker Icon-South Africa.png talk/British Army librarian 15:15, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks

Slurp... You must be hungry after all the awesome editing you've done to this Wiki, have some milk and a cookie as a reward!
Yum.


Thanks for your help with re-categorizing pages. I know it didn't come out the exact way you wanted, but sometimes decisions have to be made for the overall wiki. You have done a lot of hard work, thanks a lot! --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 14:53, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Hehe, thanks :P It's a shame, but ahwell... - Icon-UK.png John F Baker Icon-South Africa.png talk/British Army librarian 16:58, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

You are crazy

But in a good way! :D You have toooo many pages in your user pages, which is quite impressive. I have deleted all pages that have the deletion template in them, except one, so are you sure about this one? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 11:25, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I tried to cut down xD - you can go and delete the Bob Boblo's House page, I have another copy here :) - Icon-UK.png John F Baker Icon-South Africa.png talk/British Army librarian 18:46, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

How the heck did I manage that ? I have been away for a month, due to my computer dying on me (notice that I have been pretty absent from the wiki for a while? ;D) --Icon-Australia.png Timeoin|Say G'Day 12:00, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
Meh, you must be awesome ;) How do you become a mod anyway? - Icon-UK.png John F Baker Icon-South Africa.png talk/British Army librarian 12:16, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Too many generals

Could you please review this pages:

Thank you. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 18:33, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Well, they are seperate ranks :)
General of the Army is only granted to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the United States Armed Forces, whilst the rank of General is one grade lower, and used all over the world, irl and in erep.

Please ban

Hi!

Jan please ban User:Padraig Pearse because of a stupid thing he did, deleting Ireland, you can see it in the history page of Ireland History

Thank youEmorfion|Talk to me!Icon-Israel.png 15:22, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you again, but I just noticed that he blanked UK and USA, I undid it, so now it's okay, but he can't continue making this! Thank you Emorfion|Talk to me!Icon-Israel.png 16:10, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Right, thanks for the shout :) Next time, post this in the bar :D - John F Baker Icon-South Africa.png Talk/Pretorian Guard 16:27, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok Emorfion|Talk to me!Icon-Israel.png 07:46, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Template thanks

Thanks for putting the USA History NavBar into the template namespace! Was thinking of doing a header too, but I'm not sure it will work because of Title changes for each page; see the one under Top Header. Just thought it might create some graphical consistency. What you think? Even possible to have a modified text field in a title bar? --Icon-USA.png Citizen 6 | Talk 03:00, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

I think I'll take your advice, the project menu idea sounds better and more stylish. I'll give you a hollar when its done to see what you think. Thanks again. --Icon-USA.png Citizen 6  Award-star-silver-3d.png Talk   10:38, 16 March 2011 (UTC)


Graveyard template (thombstone template)

o7 Jan. Graveyard template is awesome, can you just make it little smaller? And if you can add place for avatar of the player, something like this:

Graveyardtemplate.jpg

This is not perfect xD, i just wanted to show you what i mean :D

And if it's possible to make one more template for whole graveyard (it should be on the right side like citizen, country, newspaper, etc.)

I hope you understand me :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hurkancs (talkcontribs)

How's it going with template? :) I am nervous :D----Hurkancs Icon-Croatia.png Say something to me :) 13:01, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Battle Row

When you get a chance check Template_talk:Battle_Row/Header, I think if you adjust the widths it will look like what you were originally going for. --Icon-USA.png Citizen 6  Award-star-silver-3d.png Talk   12:52, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Battle Template

I tried using your template on these two pages - ONE Invasion of Bulgaria and Bulgarian Independence War. I uploaded maps for the Bulgarian regions. However on the first page the maps aren't shown, while on the second they are shown. I have no idea why. Can you help me? Icon-Bulgaria.png V3n0M93 | Talk 15:06, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

I can answer that. The template only puts maps in when they are there is a map file is named, "Region-Name_of_Region.png" . Just answering because I have the same thing over on the USA. You may need to make maps, which is what I'm doing. Some have them, some do not. --Icon-USA.png Citizen 6  Award-star-silver-3d.png Talk   02:52, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
Response :) - John F Baker Icon-UK.png Talk/Royal Navy 05:19, 2 May 2011 (PDT)
The problem was with the function that checks if the map exists. If there are many regions without maps followed by some who have a map, some of the ones who have maps won't be showed. The page said that it has too many expensive parser function calls. When I uploaded some maps to the other regions it was fixed. I also noticed that if there are too many battles the same message appears - ""Pages with too many expensive parser function calls"" and some of the maps don't appear [6]. Icon-Bulgaria.png V3n0M93 | Talk 05:52, 2 May 2011 (PDT)
Ah really... I will try to refine the template then, and get rid of unnecessary parsers :) - John F Baker Icon-UK.png Talk/Royal Navy 06:43, 2 May 2011 (PDT)
EDIT: Oh. Well, it'd help if you had less than like 100 templates on the page xD - there's nothing much I can really do there. I suggest splitting it up somehow into separate pages? :S - John F Baker Icon-UK.png Talk/Royal Navy 06:52, 2 May 2011 (PDT)
That's what I did. The problem is when some regions don't have maps. Then it take 3-4 times less templates before they stop working.--Icon-Bulgaria.png V3n0M93 | Talk 08:25, 2 May 2011 (PDT)
 :( Yeah, again, theres nothing that can be done about that, unless we reupload all regions to be the same filetype and same filetype format (e.g all PNG, not png or PNG). Then we could just use 1 parser instead of 6 :/ John F Baker Flag-UK.jpg Talk   Royal Navy 08:36, 2 May 2011 (PDT)

Battle templates for pre-minibattle wars

Hello. I was wondering if you could make a template for battles before the addition of the minibattle feature. The only thing that needs to be changed from the current one is to remove the minibattle images and to add a field to write the victor. Thanks. --Icon-Bulgaria.png V3n0M93 | Talk 08:29, 4 May 2011 (PDT)
