Rewards

Check them out eRepublik:Rewards. Congratulations to everyone! Ps. Belea, you could give the rewards for last four months if you have time ;) --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 12:57, 1 January 2012 (PST)

New alliance

Just a query but a new alliance has been formed that's technically the Junior EDEN, called the Garden of EDEN alliance. I want to make a page on it but the name could be different. Would it be, the Garden of EDEN alliance or the Garden of Erepublik Defence & Economy Network Alliance. I'm not sure as the new policy for Alliance names is somewhat, non-existent besides the vote a few months ago. -- Icon-USA.png Mikhail Alexander | Talk 17:38, 2 January 2012 (PST)

Last time I checked, if there are articles published by the country's official press outlining the alliance then it's technically notable enough to proceed with an article with the exact name used in the article. But I could be wrong... Icon-Taiwan.pngIcon-USA.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkFmr.UberEditor 22:26, 2 January 2012 (PST)
"The Garden", or just "Countries that are too small to give a damn about them"? --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 05:22, 3 January 2012 (PST)
Grzechooo, it's just a mini-alliance and if EDEN like them enough, they are accepted. They're told to f*** off. Also everyone refers to it as the "Garden of EDEN" so I might as well call it that, if it happens to change or whatever. I can work with that. -- Icon-USA.png Mikhail Alexander | Talk 23:30, 5 January 2012 (PST)


History Bug?

Not sure whether its a bug or a feature but I and others can't find page histories for last year. Eg.: http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php?title=Game_Moderators&action=history http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php?title=Community_communication&action=history --"Icon-Poland.png Gucio16" 15:50, 5 January 2012 (PST)

Same Here, only last edition :S.--Santirub«say me hi :3» 18:00, 5 January 2012 (PST)
Something is broken but don't except it to be fixed. Admins don't use their time in wiki anymore. If you wish, you can report a bug via ticket but I already know exactly what's gonna happen to the ticket... --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 22:40, 5 January 2012 (PST)
Everyone knows what will happen with that ticket. --"Icon-Poland.png Gucio16" 23:50, 5 January 2012 (PST)
"Broken", or someone did "php maintenance/deleteOldRevisions.php" ;3 --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 07:36, 8 January 2012 (PST)


Problems?

I apologize if this is in the wrong section (I'm still trying to figure this place out). That being said, are we having a problem? I can't seem to get to the United States of America Wiki page. I had other friends try it as well, all we get is a 500 error. Thanks EmperorZahradkaII 10:24, 12 January 2012 (PST)

Huh, seems like there is a problem, since I get a blank page, and it looks like the page got somehow "vandalized":
 The United States of America is a nation situated in the Western Hemisphere of the world sandwiched by Canada to the North and Mexico to the South. 
(USA page)
But unfortunately, stupid Wiki Engineers deleted old revisions (congrats), so I don't have any way to revert to any usable state. --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 10:35, 13 January 2012 (PST)
Is there any way we can set it to a state where we can at least start adding information again? I can't even see the page to edit it... EmperorZahradkaII 10:50, 13 January 2012 (PST)
Seems like an ID-10T error to me, EmerperorZahradkaII. I can see it just fine and can edit it as I please. Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 03:21, 14 January 2012 (PST)
Jameson, don't call users idiots, it just gives a blank page for me, and for some users too. --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 04:02, 14 January 2012 (PST)
And, "is there any way we can set it to a state", I already said:
 stupid Wiki Engineers deleted old revisions (congrats), so I don't have any way to revert to any usable state. 
(Grzechooo)
--Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 04:04, 14 January 2012 (PST)

It seems that the wiki servers can't handle that big load (request times out but the wiki can't seem to be able to show some informing error message). It works sometimes because of page caching (the servers render the page once and after that it's loaded from cache). --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 08:16, 14 January 2012 (PST)

It seems to be the RegionsTable template with thousands of parses causing the problems... Removed it for now (should work better now). --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 08:19, 14 January 2012 (PST)



Let me interrupt you there for a second

Now that I have your attention, I don't remember anyone wishing me a happy new year...how dare you!
So I decided to drop a line or more, wishing to all the contributors, old and new, good and not, an apocalyptic happy full with new experiences new year 2012!
Pics animated-deniro-watching-you.gif About my activity, I'm watching you. So to make this not a not useful topic, let's count the active contributors that check the bar on here by leaving a comment here.
I'll go first. --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 17:27, 21 January 2012 (PST)

Hello, reporting for duty! --Icon-Croatia.png Dalibor / Talk 07:32, 22 January 2012 (PST)
I also randomly check the wiki :P John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 14:05, 23 January 2012 (PST)
Sigh I usually have My Watchlist open on my list of tabs... but frankly I never click refresh XD Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 00:36, 12 February 2012 (PST)

Vandalism?

Citizen page of Iain Keers has been blanked, except for template.

I thought that it may have been an accident, however after checking changes made in the template, eg.: Faith= NOT DIOISM, Politics - FAILURE of ONE... it appears to be a deliberate attack.

Changes were made by User:Ishabad.

--Sre8renica 18:54, 23 January 2012 (PST)

Ishabad has been blocked. Page reverted back to normal. Thanks for pointing this out. Yours, Daniel--DanielDimow||Speak to me. 13:09, 24 January 2012 (PST)
Brand new Wiki-Editor - User:General_Hous - has just become Editor and his first act was to blank the page of Ing._Luis. --Sre8renica 16:29, 25 January 2012 (PST)
I didn't realize we've degraded to needing AVP in eRep Wiki. Kinda sad. Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 23:55, 25 January 2012 (PST)
"AVP"??? O.o --Belea2008 01:16, 26 January 2012 (PST)

I think he means Anti-virus program. --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 05:29, 26 January 2012 (PST)

Actually I meant Anti-Vandal Patrol. Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 00:09, 28 January 2012 (PST)
It's the same. :D But yeah... --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 03:49, 28 January 2012 (PST)
Well, it's a kind of failure that such account got accepted (*looks at Belea*) --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 03:12, 29 January 2012 (PST)
> Daniel Dimow‎; 22:56 . . (-12,558) . . Mohammad Mian (Talk | contribs) (Replaced content with "signature") i doubt this is intended by daniel. ---- Icon-Netherlands.png Icon-Australia.png Tim Veltkamp| Nubcakes? 21:42, 8 February 2012 (PST)
Mohammad Mian was involved in reverting Pakistan page. Appears to be war between old Dio and new Islamic Pakistan. Daniel Dimov has protected the Pakistan page, and as a result Mohammad Mian replaced Daniels's page with a signature.--Sre8renica 22:20, 8 February 2012 (PST)

I'm open to discuss, if you think he hadn't deserved his ban. --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 02:48, 12 February 2012 (PST)

^^Have no problem with Mohammad Mian getting a ban. He richly deserved it.--Sre8renica 23:13, 23 February 2012 (PST)

Hello. [[1]] hasn't got Pampas listed as one of its borders, where Pampas has South east Chaco listed. Correct that please.I already informed Xtasia, but maybe you should get to know it too, in case she forgets. All of the wiki regions are up to date now.--DanielDimow||Speak to me. 06:27, 27 January 2012 (PST)

Changes

A lot has changed and there's no info anywhere. If someone wants to spend time figuring out how everything works, please do it. I'm not going to do it. --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 03:48, 30 January 2012 (PST)

Me neither, they don't give a fuck about us (Wiki), we don't give a fuck about them, am I right? --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 05:11, 30 January 2012 (PST)
Foolin around. I say, admins really expect wiki to be up-to-date if they don't give a shit about it? Just curious, I'd say they'd just want to remove it :| ||||||Khebit TC| 08:45, 31 January 2012 (PST)
Like they did with Forum? --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 03:47, 1 February 2012 (PST)

[16:55:07] <XtaSia> we are a bit overwhelmed with the Game Support issues. Just thought to share this here :D --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 10:31, 31 January 2012 (PST)

LMAO they've been "underwhelmed" since eRep beta... at least give us something new we /haven't/ heard of... like how they were trying to pay off their debts to the space monkeys who lent them money to begin with. Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 23:47, 31 January 2012 (PST)
This is the lamest excuse I've ever seen. Ever. If they are "overwhelmed", why don't hire new Game Moderators, or it's just nobody wants to be one (I wouldn't be surprised if it was the truth)? --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 03:47, 1 February 2012 (PST)
Just make a notice, we won't update any info on changes until we get some information previously on the changes or even better, questions and extentions added, if they want, they'll remove it. I just don't give a shit anymore. -- Icon-Norway.png Mikhail Alexander | Talk 06:26, 4 February 2012 (PST)

Block of Dark Wolf of Balkan

Dark Wolf of Balkan has contacted me about his wiki block. He says he's sorry and made a mistake. Should we unban him? --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 10:28, 31 January 2012 (PST)

I'd give him another chance. --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 03:37, 1 February 2012 (PST)
What was he banned for? -- Icon-Norway.png Mikhail Alexander | Talk 06:25, 4 February 2012 (PST)
You could check his contributions, but wait, admin was so "smart" to delete old revisions, sooo... --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 03:29, 5 February 2012 (PST)
He was banned either for vandalism or other things. I'm not taking the risk, nope. -- Icon-Norway.png Mikhail Alexander | Talk 03:49, 5 February 2012 (PST)

Clearly intentional so ban is infinite.)--- http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php/Special:BlockList --- Deliberate vandalism, I hope ban stays.--Sre8renica 14:05, 9 February 2012 (PST)
My mind was just made up but if you want to give him a trial run, go for it, however if he does it again. Bye, bye! -- Icon-Norway.png Mikhail Alexander | Talk 02:21, 13 February 2012 (PST)
I'm against permanent bans for one vandalism. --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 07:23, 15 February 2012 (PST)

2 for unban - 1 for ban. Dark Wold of Balkan unbanned! --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 05:38, 18 February 2012 (PST)

Timeline

Well, in Spain we're having a babyboom, and someone suggested we could improve the Spanish articles of the wiki. The think is a guy (Kojie) told me to ask you (a.k.k. Sysops/Mods/Wathever) if you could install this template to create timelines of Congress, wars, presidents and all that stuff. As far as I know he knows wiki coding so I'd say he won't blow anything up ;)

Well, that's it, thanks in advance :·)

||||||Khebit TC| 14:04, 31 January 2012 (PST)

I'd love for Admins to install stuff... but every time I ask for something to be installed I get LOL'ed at. I hope the same doesn't happen to you, but I also wouldn't hold my breath. Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 23:48, 31 January 2012 (PST)
I guess it's this, and I see it requires Perl, but... why the hell I give a damn, since "Wiki Engineers" most likely won't give a damn about installing it (it would be great, but huh)? --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 03:41, 1 February 2012 (PST)
