Pakistan never admitted to using this tactic; it was organized by one of our citizens, not our government. One of our citizens (Ivan Hat) decided to leave us, and about ten or fifteen Pakistani led by Gyro Zepelli followed him and led the coup.
To minimize the amount of work I have to do with the article, I'll replace 'Pakistan' with 'a citizen of Pakistan', as that would be enough to factually correct the article. -AgentChieftain 07:04, 24 June 2008 (BST)
- Alright, however you removed the part that Indonesia admitted that they did that, why? Also I am going to add something like this; "There are people who believe that the government of Pakistan was behind this."
- Hmm, you're right. I'll add that section back.
- I recommend adding something along the lines of '...rumor has it that the Pakistani government ordered them to do so" to be more encyclopedic. Remember, the wiki isn't supposed to show a bias. -AgentChieftain 08:38, 24 June 2008 (BST)
- Previous Indonesian plan on taking over on China was also without the knowledge of government of that time.
The 20+ people were coming from the Liberalist coalition of Narcissist and Partai Rakyat Merdeka, not from the ruling Indonesian Defensive Socialist party at that moment, hence the name Liberal Party of China. Nevertheless, since it was in line with Indonesian foreign policy at that time, that was to protect East Asia, eventually Indonesian government recognised the effort. isnuwardana
- There was another failed political take over done by the Indonesian: in Thailand through the Defensive Democrat Social party, which apparently a splinter group from Indonesian Defensive Socialist party. However since their plan was flawed (no support from the party or a company, unlike the China take over), it was failed and eventually recognised as multiaccounters by admin. I dont know whether the government at that time recognised it since it was either socialist IDS or liberalist Narcissist party who ruled the government of Indonesia.
- Changed a headline to reflect the contents. The article and discussion states that the takeover was merely done by people who were previously Pakistani, so it's ridiculous to have a title that suggests the government was behind it
i accidentally reverted to someone else doing an edit before you, then i saw i did something wrng and reverted to your change..so.. i am not trolling, if you see your post as trolling then ok. --Aryamehr talk 02:28, 31 August 2008 (BST)
- Ah okay, seemed like you just reverted an edit cause it was done by a Paki. You might want to supply a reason when you revert an edit next time --GnolTac 01:22, 3 September 2008 (BST)
Back to Politics + Category - Learning the game
I don't think they are necessary because:
- there is no link in Politics to this;
- how does this fit in Learning the game? (btw, half or more of this Wiki is for learning the game).
- I agree (Rufus)Honestly 01:07, 3 September 2008 (BST)
- If you want to change the category, it is fine, I am not married to it, I was just trying to tie all of these instructional pages together and now that I think about it, this is similar to the war page. So I will take the link out.--Q J Lincoln 16:56, 3 September 2008 (BST)
There is such a thing as having TOO MANY Links.
Added [party takeovers], which would be takeovers of major parties by members of another to prevent presidential opposition
Once the dust settles on eRepublik Rising, im going to add Australia to this list. It has been taken over by Indonesia in what they are calling Operation:AngelDemon (will create a page for this later on) -- Timeoin|Say G'Day 03:10, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
Further improvements ideas
- Format this page (and add signatures to comments): http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php/Talk:Political_takeover
- Remove the original source from the main article, because this page has become a game play encyclopedic one.
- Change the categories (or add new ones) - PTOs are still possible and still valid as a game play mechanic.
- Try to find and add chronological dates to each of the PTOs described in the historical section of the main article.
