Hello AgentChieftain. Can I ask you, is it possible that you update this articles:

ePCB

The ePCB, political party, on wiki is again Partido Comunista Brasileiro. Thats why I ask you for unblock the edition from the Partido Comunista Brasileiro article. -- Carlos Bianchi Icon-Romania.png Carlos Bianchi 23:03, 15 December 2010 (EET)

If you don't have the intention to update them, what should we do with them?
Thank you for your answer. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 13:22, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

I intend to finish The Trumpets eventually (Not now, I have enough writing on my plate), and I can mention that "Sandworm" was one of the most popular candidates for an eRepublik mascot. Otherwise, there isn't much information to add to either page. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 04:33, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Collapse Template

I created a Collapse Template. It's nothing special; just something I've been messing around with. On this page, I have been testing it, and there is a peculiar problem with text that comes after the template. Do you think you could have a look at it? Thanks. -- Citizen1257373.jpg Mr. Awesome | Talk | 21:11, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

I'll take a look at it in a second. I'm actually kind of horrible with tables, but I might be able to fix it for you. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 19:08, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

The "eBox" problem

Hello! I have been telled (past tense? argh) to chat with you about the eBox problem. It just won't align to the right side, no matter how much I push. You can see what I mean in my sandbox: User:Kalamarko92/Sandbox/Template:Organization2 and User:Kalamarko92/Sandbox. Sorry to bother! --Kalamarko92 18:38, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

The problem was the margin parameter was unchanged. {{eBox}}'s default margin is 0 10% 0 10% which gives it the large spaces on it's left and right sides. That's what was giving you the alignment problems.
I went ahead and removed it from the table and adjusted the margin for you in your sandbox. Have fun! - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 19:06, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Unexpected Promotion

Thank you very much for this honour! I freely admit I never expected it; I am just a meagre artist. I will wear the gold star with pride.

I am in revision mode for my exams at the moment, but I will return as soon as they are finished. I have already made a very nice (I think) .gif on the Slovakia-Czech Republic War, and I think more might be on the way, when I have time. As always, I am willing to help in any way, just leave a message. Thanks again! --Martin23230 08:11, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

List of Congressmen Categories

QJ tells me that my congress lists should all have categories. The problem is that when you embed one of those lists to say a region or party page then it adds that page to the category. Is there a way to add the lists to a category without causing the pages that link to them to also be in the category? -- Citizen1257373.jpg Mr. Awesome | Talk | 14:34, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Redirects

I deleted the Holy Army of Pakistan redirect because it was directing to itself, a circular redirect. There is a possibility that it was "Holy Army of Pakistan" to "holy Army of Pakistan" but after the change to no case sensitivity. If it needs to be restored, please do so, I was just trying to get rid of some of the crap redirects. --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 15:47, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

need to mod eLink/Switch to include party

QJ Lincoln told me to put this here...

MediaWiki:Common.css

Some help needed there. The next time to take a look at edit, please remove all the CSS we do not use. For example "Geographical coordinates". Thanks in advance! --Geo (talk) 19:02, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it would be wise to remove all of them at once, so I'll delete sections in small chunks. I removed the geography-related CSS as you asked. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 10:40, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Template Needed

Agent, If you noticed there are some changes to the Uber Editor process. When a person is retired from being an Uber Editor, they will become part of the Uber Editor Alumni. We need some sort of template for this. Preferably, it would have the same star, maybe a different color, and it would be good if said something like "Former Uber Editor, Dates of Service = mm/dd/yyyy - mm/dd/yyyy". The template would automatically put the user into a category for Uber Editor Alumni/Former Uber Editors, whatever. --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 20:14, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

On it. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 02:06, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Done. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 02:21, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Thank you Agent. You are awesome. I have deployed it to various user pages. --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 19:43, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Citizen Template

Agent, So... where are we with the citizen template. What do you need to finish it? --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 22:53, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

A way to fix the float, and I'd like to fix a few minor style errors before it's implemented sitewide. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 13:47, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Rules

Regarding your concerns you expressed related to Rules and how they are applied. Starting next week, you may see changes in this page: Forbidden. Don't expect wonders or a complete overhaul of that page and/or the rules page over night. These type of improvements will take some time because the discussions regarding that subject were (and still are) very lengthy. --Geo (talk) 15:45, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Special Project

AgentChieftain, I have a special project for you - cleaning out the template name space. We have a lot of templates there that I am unsure what they are. Many you have created. Can you start organizing this by *deleting what is useless *categorizing what is not *protecting what should be super protected, etc? I asked for feedback about some of the "navigation templates" in the bar but no one responded. So I guess they stay for now. I have already started by categorizing some of the notices and religion templates. Thanks!--QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 14:35, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Ugh, does this mean I have to give each template proper documentation too, or can I conveniently forget to do that? - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 23:02, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Feedback?

We are beginning a new program for the wiki, the eRepublik Official Wiki:Wiki Mentor Program. I need some feedback.

  1. Should those with mentors be called Mentees or Proteges? (I can't decide)
  2. What do you think of the presentation?
  3. What do you think of the pages and layout? Feel free to make any edits or tweaks to info.
  4. What do you think of the project overall? Is enough information given? Do you feel like the program is explained well enough? Is there enough guidance? And I know I still need info on the "Mentee pages"
  5. Do you think this will work?

Thanks for any input you can provide! --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 14:41, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

  1. That's a tough call. I think mentees is a bit too proper and might confuse the non-native English speakers, though proteges might raise the same problem. I'd go with proteges because sticking with Wikipedia isn't an absolute must.
  2. I'm not sure what you mean by presentation; do you mean the entire suite of pages or the way everything is written?
  3. Give the right of the page a little more space, woman! Also, I think having the Mentee Home separate from the main page might be a bit confusing to new mentees.
  4. I think it's ambitious in its goal and should be a great way to help other users, but I'm not sure how well it will work, so launch it and see how it goes. Unlike the case of templates, you don't run the risk of bungling everything on the wiki by trying to be helpful.
  5. I haven't seen it "work" anywhere else, though it should legitimately help out at least a handful of users, which is better than nothing.

Presentation is on this page eRepublik Official Wiki:Wiki_Mentor_Program/Mentor_Guide a slide show... google doc link. And yes, I know there is some issue with the formatting of the page... because I am using Martin's work and haven't figured it all out. --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 01:27, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Email notifications

I just received a notification email with a few unusual characteristics that I haven't seen before.

Dear AgentChieftain,

The eRepublik Official Wiki page Template:L/doc has been changed on 10:25, 16 cze 2009 by Grzechooo, see http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php/Template:L/doc for the current version.

See
http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php?title=Template:L/doc&diff=0&oldid=150840
for all changes since your last visit.

Editor's summary: fix To jest drobna zmiana

Contact the editor:
mail: http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php/Special:EmailUser/Grzechooo

There will be no other notifications in case of further changes unless you visit this page.
You could also reset the notification flags for all your watched pages on your watchlist.


  1. Why am I being told that it is a minor edit in Polish? Does this have to do with a MediaWiki conflict between different users' language settings?
  2. Why is the wiki giving the option to email users when the feature isn't being used?

I'm going to hunt for the special page to remove that last bit, but I'm a bit curious about the bizarre Polish note. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 09:24, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

I found the special page I was looking for, although it doesn't seem like the thing I should be editing. Removing "mail: $PAGEEDITOR_EMAIL" should work.
Something I'm not sure of, though, is the effects of editing MediaWiki pages like this one to the server. After some nasty experiences we've had with the job queue when editing major templates, I'm a bit wary of editing something this major. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 09:58, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
We encourage you to go forward with any changes you wish for that page. That MediaWiki page is used as a template for emails, not for actual Wiki pages. --Admin 13:45, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Two quick questions

  1. http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php?title=Template:Documentation&diff=109590&oldid=96753
    Was {{Purge}} causing problems? I use it frequently in template testing to clear my cache, so I would like to keep the functionality in {{Documentation}}.
  2. http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php?title=Template:eBox&diff=next&oldid=131870
    Was there any specific reason to remove the mini-tutorial?

Sorry for my tardiness in asking, but I'm sure you're already aware of what's going on at this time of the year. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 14:40, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

1. We have removed the purge feature from all the Wiki pages that used it in order to replicate an usability behavior. You can keep the functionality in {Tl|Documentation}}.
2. The mini-tutorial is addressed to very experienced editors. We consider that documentation on template pages should describe how the template can be used. Discussions about improving templates can be addressed in talk pages/sandboxes.

Censorship in Dioism

What happened with this idea: http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php/User:AgentChieftain/Sandbox/Censorship_in_Dioism ? --Belea2008 20:39, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

I abandoned it after I ran out of ideas for the page, noting that the nature of the page comes very close to breaking the rules, and anyone else editing the page is likely to cross the line without knowing (and possibly receiving punishment for editing in good faith).
Even though most of my work with the page is done, bringing it into the main namespace seems a bit risky. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 13:32, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Wikitable Question?

Hi

I'm trying to get a set of separate wikitables to look the same with different sized data inside. Any ideas of the commands to set width of the column?

Thanks's Astintus

Can you describe what you're doing a bit further? If my instincts are correct and you want these tables to be parallel to each other, try putting the two tables in a larger, invisible table.
I hope that helps, but if my assumption is incorrect, feel free to leave another message. If I take too long to reply again, send me a PM in-game since I tend to respond to those faster (and email notifications tend to be overlooked). - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP!

Hello. Please write here if you disagree with this proposal: http://wiki.erepublik.com/index.php/eRepublik:Bar/Debate_9#Establishing_a_unified_template_color_scheme - If no strong disagreements are expressed in 48 hours, I think that the proposal should be considered as "approved". --Belea2008 21:21, 10 May 2010 (UTC) Belea requested that I go bug some people - so I am doing so. There is a proposal currently being voted upon regarding a unified colour template, located here.
