Uncle Sam Impeachment Articles
I think we should have a discussion on the plethora of articles about and mentioning the Uncle Sam impeachment debacle. While I realize that it was a great victory for USWP, the fact that a few users ran around 3 articles posting about it(Uncle Sam impeachment , history page, Uncle_Sam#First_Impeachment_Proposal) disturbs me. Not only did they add it to the history page, but they made a brand new page for it(why?), and didn't add anything else to the page. I want to propose deletion for the impeachment page. Thoughts? --Emerick 01:19, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
If you don't know where to start, look at for anything wrong on USA. From there, follow links around or search for things that interest you. I'm sure you'll find something that needs done. --Emerick 01:19, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Tackling the 51 US state pages to ensure they are up to date and include all pertinent information. Chris Stanwick 02:07, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
I may start setting up dedicated articles for the branches of the military, and also do some updating to some history. Robert Loggia 03:24, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm planning on just roaming and doing minor (or major) copy-editing where I find the need. []
Backwards Walking Bears
Working on http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php/United_States_of_America/History#Scrabman_and_the_Fall_of_ATLANTIS . Going to write in our history from the start of the scrabman to now. Also going to clean out the horrid bias. --Woxan 06:28, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Butthole Hater Trolls
I started to make a list, but then, here: Parties of the USA. From United States Workers Party down the line, the whole thing is outdated. Also, I want to make a third party table on USA of historical parties --Emerick 01:19, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
The Yearbook Staff
This is a sensitive subject, since we're dealing with people, a lot of whom have written their own biography. I'd advise against editing out whatever the person of interest had put there themselves- ie This little tidbit on Justin's article. Personally, I think that it's funny, and it's a little piece of his personality, which I think is vitally important on a citizen's page. Also, as established on Sir Lewis's talk, a user's biography belongs to them. Oh, and Uncle Sam is just despicable. Look at the impeachment parts. This is ridiculous. --Emerick 01:19, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
In situations where we are creating pages for citizens with no previous entries, I suggest contacting that person before or after the page is written, so that they have the opportunity to personalize it a bit. Optimally, pages will reflect a little bit of the citizen's own flair. Cerb 02:22, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Working on adding in pages for current and recent Congress members. I will be contacting individual people as their pages are made so they can add a little personality, or I can do it for them if they don't have Wiki access yet. Cerb 03:37, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Working on pages for specific high profile ecitizens that aren't covered by Cerb (I suppose). Aldric Harper 05:55, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
- I myself can start doing this little by little if you guys would like. I also have on my to do list a page for the Economic Council as well as up-keeping History of Tax Policies - which I plan to re-do to account for various tax changes and the "Free Trade" movement. - Jewitt // Hatemail is appreciated! 06:09, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Good Job on this coordinated effort. I just dropped in to remind everyone to be familiar with all of the policies, procedures, and templates on the wiki. A lot of information is available to you if you look in the sidebar. Please let me know if you have any questions! :D --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 14:57, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
