Vatican flag

I'm sorry if this sounds a bit rude, but why? We can can the flag itself, but would it be all right if we kept the symbol on it? Also, does this mean we can't use any current religious symbol whether christian, muslim, jewish, catholic etc etc? Here is the new example: [1] --(Rufus)Honestly 01:53, 31 August 2008 (BST)

Why not create a symbol that takes inspiration from all three, rathen than use one that is solely Catholic? The (Current) symbol of Dioism is something out of my own design, and the symbol of Lidoxa is also entirely original.

AgentChieftain says it very well, it is all right to get inspiration from RL religions or movies or games, but try to create something new, unique, something that you can be proud that you created.

Question 1 - Why did you remove the template? —Preceding unsigned comment added by MiniBill (talkcontribs) 22:49, August 31, 2008

Because the page is translated in English. --Belea2008 Hail eSouth Africa! chew the fat 22:09, 31 August 2008 (BST)
The translation is ugly, really ugly, so we need someone to work on it

Dispute resolution

If you don't mind, can you swing by here and voice your opinion on the edits the article received yesterday? I'm trying to resolve a scuffle with another user, and I need a third opinion to turn a disagreement into an agreement. Thanks.

Romanian Wiki

Hi Belea! Romanian wiki needs you! ;) --—Preceding unsigned comment added by Seductiv (talkcontribs) ?

Hi back... Added that idea to my projects... now I just have to remember my password... long time... :D - I see that you are back and "fighting" again with MiniBill... it looks like some things never change... I see dead people! =)) --Belea2008 Hail eSouth Africa! chew the fat 01:23, 11 September 2008 (BST)
To be continue... --—Preceding unsigned comment added by Seductiv (talkcontribs) ?

Can I get your opinion?
Thanks! --Q J Lincoln 16:19, 16 September 2008 (BST)

Help Page

Remember how you copy and pasted the links from my profile help section and added them to the main help page, Well the the link to wiki markup is wrong :) its ment to be I tried to tell admin, but he/she doesnt seem to have noticed. Maybe you can change it. --MachineMadness Aussie Aussie Ausssie! 11:56, 17 September 2008 (BST)

Country template

Please make your proposal in the talk page! --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 19:24, 17 September 2008 (BST)

South Africa Chapters

Can I, please have your input on Chapters in SAR Wiki Page. As you have edited page before, you may be aware of a large number of Chapters on that page. I have attempted to Group these Chapters into: Society, Economy, Politics, Military, Media (as they appear in the game). Esteban Delgado has performed "Undo" and wants to have Erepublic Wiki to follow Wikipedia entry (which have 13 Chapters, many of these have nothing to do with actual game). --Hrvat Flag of Austria talk 02:58, 22 September 2008 (BST)

eRepublik banned in China?

(from User talk:Jazar)

 You could just as well have nuked our economy. Only 1 out of 5 raw materials is ridiculous, I know that IRL we import most natural resources as well but you can't 100% copy our real life economy.
Take Russia and China by example, both countries are huge IRL but ingame they have the smallest userbases (especially China since the game is banned) so they've obviously been conquered. However those countries got about every natural resource?
Rusia got a 2 in EVERY sector...

Where have you read that eRepublik is banned in China? :D --Belea2008 18:09, 23 September 2008 (BST)

China Ban

It seems I've mistaken. I read it on the forums and I thought it was true because of China's Golden Shield. However, I did a test (though I don't know it's reliability, most testing sites have closed due to stricter security) and it said the site was still available.
Wouldn't be surprised if it would be blocked in the future though. I guess saying Falung Gong or 'Fre Tibet' is enough to make that happen.

"Hello, I am QJ Lincoln, and I am a Wikipediholic." :) - Nah, I am not offended by the comment. It is funny and kind of true. I have just been really bored and/or procrastinating, so the wiki is filling my time. --QJ Lincoln 06:10, 7 October 2008 (PDT)


Not sure if you noticed, but I updated the FAQ with info from the temp forums two minutes before you deleted the content. Unless you have a new FAQ, I would suggest you go from what I put together. --DaLe 14:56, 13 October 2008 (PDT)

Hehe, no problem. :p --DaLe 14:58, 13 October 2008 (PDT)

More help needed :D

Division of congress members - needs your magic touch! If you can add that table today, it will be perfect because we need it for today's Insider. Thanks again! --Belea2008 15:51, 30 October 2008 (EET)

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITS HAMMER TIME! --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core call me! 16:16, 30 October 2008 (EET)
Done --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core call me! 16:26, 30 October 2008 (EET)
Okay! :) --Belea2008 17:02, 30 October 2008 (EET)

Question 2

??????????? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aryamehr (talkcontribs) 18:09, November 4, 2008

Undeleted the page! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Belea2008 (talkcontribs) 19:36, November 4, 2008

Wrong template

(from User talk:Antonio salgado)

On this page, you used Template:Region. You should have used Template:Religion. Have fun at editing! --Belea2008 14:27, 10 November 2008 (EET)

thx, but the region template fits better what i want, the religion one look strange or i amo not managing to use it right.

Pages in Italian

(from User talk:Antonio salgado)

Make them with "(Italiano)" (capital "I"), please! Thanks! --Belea2008 20:34, 10 November 2008 (EET)

Ok thx for you help =) --Kurapica 20:35, 10 November 2008 (EET)
Also, [[Train (Italiano)|Italiano]] is the same as [[Train_(Italiano)|Italiano]]... so there is no need for the "_". It's easier to copy paste! Keep up the good work! And I should thank you for bringing something new to the Wiki.... Have fun at editing! --Belea2008 20:38, 10 November 2008 (EET)
Thank you for the information, I don't known about those tricks, thx a lot for your help :D --Kurapica 20:39, 10 November 2008 (EET)

Question 3

Can I ask why you created a page for a dead person? Piratical Political --QJ Lincoln 04:43, 12 November 2008 (EET)

Because User:PiraticalPolitical was appearing in Category:Citizens. I started removing all users from that category by creating minimal citizen pages.
--Belea2008 10:35, 12 November 2008 (EET)
OK that makes sense! --QJ Lincoln 17:34, 12 November 2008 (EET)

zup --Aryamehr Flag of Iran talk 01:09, 13 November 2008 (EET)

Protecting image

Good idea --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core call me! 22:15, 18 November 2008 (EET)


Letting people edit without registering is a very bad idea.... It means no one can talk to that - and this is a COMMUNITY.--QJ Lincoln 22:38, 18 November 2008 (EET)

Yeah, you might want to do something about this. - –Dr. AgentChieftain Flag of the Crescent and Star PPP! B / C / D / F / P / S 08:36, 19 November 2008 (EET)

(from User talk:Fourgot10)

Redirecting user pages to citizen pages is, in general, not a good idea, because that will make new contributors use the wrong talk pages in order to communicate with others.. Have fun at editing! --Belea2008 12:19, 21 November 2008 (EET)

My apoligies Belea =( I was under the impression that this is what was supposed to be done since QJ Lincoln did the same thing to my page, ( I believe ). I will continue to shadow a sysop and try to replicate the proper wiki formating and editing =) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fourgot10 (talkcontribs) 12:31, November 21, 2008
You do not have to apologize. There are 3 types of pages: biographies (Fourgot10 - you use this page to tell about yourself as a eRepublik citizen), integration page (Citizen Fourgot10 - you have one in your citizen profile page - these are redirected to biographies) and user pages (User:Fourgot10 - you use this page to tell others about yourself as a eRepublik Wiki Contributor). You can read more about talk pages and signatures here. Have fun....

Question 4

Hey, i have a question, at what point did you read my article lol, because i had a part in it where i mentioned Komodavoron, did you see that part?
—Preceding unsigned comment added by Uncle Sam (talkcontribs) 19:18, November 21, 2008

Yes, I saw that part. What about it? --Belea2008 12:45, 24 November 2008 (EET)


Hey Geo. Could you take a look at the Michael Lewis page. The author of the page (Michael Lewis) is vandalizing it. Can anything be done? Of course it is a page about him, but that does not give him reason to vandalize it. Thanks for taking a look...
- ThisGenMedia aka Franco aka Teacher Amerikkka/The Party Hey girl, can I hit you back? 19:28, 22 November 2008 (EET)

Done. --Belea2008 12:46, 24 November 2008 (EET)
Thank ya kindly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ThisGenMedia (talkcontribs) 13:51, November 24, 2008


or am I going crazy..... It is possible... or the coffee is affecting my eyes... I see black spots instead of pictures.... --QJ Lincoln 19:04, 26 November 2008 (EET)

I'll explain this in half an hour. Your eyes are fine! --Belea2008 19:11, 26 November 2008 (EET)
eRepublik is participating at LeWeb (Fifth Edition, December 9th/10th). The team will create a special newsletter for this event and they will need the latest pictures I uploaded (the protected one) for this. What happened? In order to upload the pictures fast (and to keep a similar URL for them), they set in the code of the Wiki the variable $wgHashedUploadDirectory as false for one hour. So, this issue will be back to normal in about 60 minutes. Sorry for the scary babelfish that you see on some pages! --Belea2008 19:36, 26 November 2008 (EET)
Participating and this, at that, at this, at that yet the game is worse than beta still lol. --Aryamehr Flag of Iran talk 21:12, 26 November 2008 (EET)
Done. --Belea2008 21:22, 26 November 2008 (EET)

Regarding Sysop2

When you say to add a number and sign it, do you mean to add this signed edit in your section of numbers, or add the number during the edit I create along with my answers to your previous numbers? I am not sure if this is already a rule or not so I also think it might good to clear this with you as well. "I do not think someone should become a sysop if they have been A. banned from erepublik in game whether temp or permanently and B. banned from the erepublik wiki whether temp or permanently." Again if this is already a requirment for a sysop then you may ignore this, but if not please explain to me how to I should add this to the discussion in the bar as I am not fully aware of how to do this. Just to show that this is not aimed at any user and is unbiased, I have been banned both permanently and temporary from the erepublik game and so would be eliminating myself from a sysop position with request to this. Thank you. Pierric Bross 00:05, 27 November 2008 (EET)

I added your question here: Bar#New_sysops_2. Feel free to answer any of the questions or add more of them. Have fun at editing! --Belea2008 12:45, 27 November 2008 (EET)
Thanks so much! Pierric Bross 13:01, 27 November 2008 (EET)
