Hope that this numbers will continue to decrease in this year. Thank all for their contributions in battling the unused and uncatagorized files, updating the obsolete article, and at the end to maintain this wiki alive. THANK YOU. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 10:50, 1 January 2015 (PST)

Updated, let us keep up guys ;-) --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 13:50, 2 January 2016 (PST)

ICitizen template

Just realized that ICitizen template always shows nationality as "eRepublikan". Is that intended? Have not noticed it before.

Also... in ICitizen name of party is always a LINK to a parties page. We have done away with linking to a political party in a regular/English citizen template - as small parties change name every time new Party president arrives or has hang-over or feels like a change... (So if you write name of party without links/brackets in regular citizen template it is displayed as a normal text).--Sre8renica (talk) 16:40, 31 December 2015 (PST)

Hey, it is on my to-do list to match all of the I templates to the normal ones + a bit more, so just act as you would with the original (English) versions. Also, template will automatically add the language category so you don't need to put any "regular" (language) category, only special ones if they are (which there shouldn't be). I will try to put the templates on the top of my list for this month. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 01:34, 1 January 2016 (PST)
Thank you, Andy.--Sre8renica (talk) 03:11, 1 January 2016 (PST)
Link to the party disabled. Working on fixing the nationality still, it is a part of a different issue, not the icitizen, hopefully I will be able to fix it so that on translated page shows translated version of the citizenship. If not, it will be restored to previous working one - it will show nationality in English. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 07:07, 12 January 2016 (PST)

Game menu

[1] Can someone check up this quick-created page by me and kinda fully update it. I wanted to kinda update the Wiki Game Menu so that it looks like the in-game one. You can add all the info you could think off. Greets, --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 10:24, 2 January 2016 (PST)

I am not really sure, should we just redirect change location to change residence. I mean, why there is no naming standards in eRepublik, would it be that hard to name it in the start change residence... --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 08:49, 6 January 2016 (PST)

Template:Party

http://prntscr.com/9llbo3 - Can someone check up the Party Template, there seems to be some sort of an error. I'm trying to figure it out right now--DanielDimow||Speak to me. 06:50, 3 January 2016 (PST)

Corrected error because the spaces. The division error happens if the congress number of the country is 0, but I guess you fixed it manually. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 08:49, 6 January 2016 (PST)
Yeah, I fixed it manually...but....it's kinda useless if you know what I mean...--DanielDimow||Speak to me. 09:18, 6 January 2016 (PST)

Offline issues

Dear editors, in next couple of weeks expect periods of offline sessions due to the updates of some complex templates. Thank you for understanding. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 05:16, 7 January 2016 (PST)

Scheduled updates will be:
  1. Monday, 11/01/2016, Template:Citizen, Template:Nationality and Template:ICitizen. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 05:16, 7 January 2016 (PST)
    1. Due to personal issues, only certain parts of the Citizen and ICitizen were updated; additional parts will be updated on Thursday, 21st, more info will follow. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 12:58, 11 January 2016 (PST)
    2. Template:ICitizen matches the Template:Citizen template. {{Dead}} and {{Ban}} have a rule that they will not show an English category if they are put in translated article. Template:Nationality is still bugged, but will fixed it hopefully til the end of the month. If you notice some of the bugs, please write here. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance?

  2. Wednesday, 26/01/2016, sync of {{Party}} and {{IParty}}; {{Alliance}} and {{IAlliance}}; {{Country}} and {{ICountry}}; {{Military unit}} and {{IMilitary unit}} --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 13:03, 22 January 2016 (PST)
    1. Cancelled. I will test the modification a little bit in my userspace and announce new date sometime in the future, there will not be any new scheduled offline sessions in this month. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 17:50, 26 January 2016 (PST)

Master, can you enlighten me what will be updated? --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 04:36, 8 January 2016 (PST)

I will try to update all of the I templates to match the English templates, depending of the success and my free time, I will always write here at least 3-4 days before updating. It will be mostly some minor changes to the English templates, but please if you think that something should be added to any of the complex templates, please write here as updating complex templates is a huge strain to wiki. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance?

Country Page

Hello guys!

Just a heads up, the My Country bar has been updated in eRepublik visually and there are new icons for each laws on the Country Administration page. If anyone has time to make the update on the wiki, it would be awesome! http://www.erepublik.com/en/country-administration/Poland/1

--"Gucio «Talk»" 07:20, 12 January 2016 (PST)

At the same time, the election check time has changed from 6 hours to 24 hours. Meaning that new congress members/CP/PPs won't be appointed until 7th/17th and 27th of the month. --"Gucio «Talk»" 14:56, 12 January 2016 (PST)

Maybe we could add it to the new message for all of the newcomers? And somehow here at the bar? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 08:49, 6 January 2016 (PST)
Newcomers message sounds good. We need to figure out where to put it in the bar?--DanielDimow||Speak to me. 09:23, 6 January 2016 (PST)
Company template should be removed from here imo since you can't access company page in-game anymore, so new company wiki pages can't be made. The rest is fine. --Icon-Montenegro.png Bogi | Talk 03:41, 20 January 2016 (PST)

vehicle depot

Let's work together on this: User:Daniel Dimow/sandbox1 . I suppose it would be better to distinguish between tank skins and vehicle depot. Any further opinions? --DanielDimow||Speak to me. 07:41, 8 January 2016 (PST)

Yeah, I think that is a good idea to split them. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 12:28, 8 January 2016 (PST)
If anyone wants to add something to Tank skins, check it up. Also check the battlefield page, I made some updates but I think more is needed. DanielDimow||Speak to me. 10:36, 13 February 2016 (PST)
I've changed it a bit. What do you think? --Icon-Montenegro.png Bogi | Talk 15:13, 13 February 2016 (PST)

Addition to Redirect Guidelines

Why not allow abbreviation redirects? Fortele Aeriene Romane is one of the oldest and best known MUs in the world, but I bet that most people know it as FAR, not by its full name. When you seach for FAR you just can't find Fortele Aeriene Romane. So why not just keep it? There are other cases like these also, for example MEK (I for one can't remember the full name). --Icon-Montenegro.png Bogi | Talk 03:39, 20 January 2016 (PST)

Well, it is tricky with the abbreviations - it can happen that one stands for something completely different. I usually leave most of the "common" active, and FAR at the moment had zero articles pointing to it. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 13:03, 22 January 2016 (PST)
