Add a Template

I'm creating the religion, Jediism on the wiki, someone contacted me to star the religion officially so I thought I'd make a template. I've got the template I like here: User:Gambit8/Sandbox, all I need doing is for it to be created. :D Could you create it please? :) -- Icon-United Kingdom.png Gambit 19:51 GMT, 18 May 2011


Okay, yeah I understand that, but I'd also like to point out though that Jediism is a real life official religion. It would be like rejecting a Muslim or Catholic page on the wiki as it's a 'non-religion'.

lol at Christianity getting rejected :D -- Icon-United Kingdom.png Gambit Y'know what religious people are like, they get all rage then get the police on you for some sort of racism stuff haha -- Icon-United Kingdom.png Gambit 22:10 GMT May 23rd 2011

O.o wierd... Something must be goofy with the Template:Day template... John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 03:15, 30 May 2011 (PDT)
It seems that #time parser can't understand the output for #expr when the day is 1288 passed to the template - the output what is passed to #time parser is 1306800000 (#time doesn't know what E+9 means ;)) I'll see what I can do. --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 05:51, 30 May 2011 (PDT)
Lol at output of {{#expr:}}, it may be some bug in ParserFunctions --Icon-Poland.png Grzechooo drop a line 05:56, 30 May 2011 (PDT)
Temporary fix: I added 1 second to the moment from which {{Day}} starts the calculation. This way the #expr won't try return the number in exponential presentation because 1 is the last number in the sequence returned by #expr. --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 06:01, 30 May 2011 (PDT)

John Baker redirects...

I removed most of those and fixed the links. So if you see any problems, send me a message (or fix it yourself if it doesn't require sysop tools ;)). --Icon-Finland.png sampo555 | Talk 06:55, 31 May 2011 (PDT)


Okay, so how many followers of Jediism do I need to have the template made? -- Icon-United Kingdom.png Gambit 00:02 BST, 17th June 2011

You will need at least 50 followers for it to get our attention and then have wiki pages set up to then move to the Namespace. -- Icon-Germany.pngIcon-Botswana.png Mikhail Alexander 16:55, 16 June 2011 (PDT)
(Wiki page set up in your name space. i.e User:Gambit8/Jediism or w/e. Then you need to make your case in eRepublik Official Wiki_talk:Religion_policy and get it approved by consensus. John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 17:01, 16 June 2011 (PDT)
Okay thanks :) Icon-United Kingdom.png Gambit 02:16 BST, 17th June 2011

You changed your name?!

Since when? :D Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 23:29, 24 January 2012 (PST)

Olol, you didn't realise? Erm... ah, according to John_F_Baker#Name_Change, the 20th of May '11. Yeah, using my rl name wasn't the best idea tbh; my google results were kinda embarrassing :P John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 13:15, 25 January 2012 (PST)
Dang, I need to think about whether or not I should change mine too then. Icon-USA.pngIcon-Taiwan.pngIcon-China.pngIcon-Australia.png- Jameson L. Tai talkUberEditor 00:12, 28 January 2012 (PST)
Aha, you never thought of that? It became kinda awkward during a 'google each other' joke thing with some friends. I had to sit there and explain why there was a guy called the Lord Admiral JB MBE DSO MID etc..., from the same county and with the same fetish for the navy as me :P John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 13:40, 31 January 2012 (PST)


I was wondering if you had a PSD template for those awesome textured ribbons you make, or if you would be willing to tell me how they're made. I'd like to learn how. Thanks! --Malcolm Pickering Icon-USA.png Talk/Edits 17:30, 17 March 2012 (PDT)

Hi Malcolm. I have a .psd somewhere, but doing the following will render the same result:
  1. Copy this file to your Photoshop document (use the file's image size for the document)
  2. Set that ribbon layer's blending option to "multiply"
  3. Create your ribbon pattern underneath that texture layer. I use vector rectangles, just make sure they're directly on-the-pixel, so you don't get fuzzy lines. Use the grid functionality if you have problems.
Hope that helps! John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 17:50, 19 March 2012 (PDT)

Thanks, John! That really helps! --Malcolm Pickering Icon-USA.png Talk/Edits 18:26, 19 March 2012 (PDT)

New maps in Battle Row

Hello! I am planning to add maps for Ukrainian Regions. I started with Taurida but it isn't shown in Battle Row. Do they need to be added manually in the template? --Icon-Bulgaria.png galenaandrea 04:40, 1 August 2012 (PDT)

Hey, the battle row is set in the coding to read only images named (e.g. Map-Taurida.png/.jpg/.gif) any extension shown but it will only show that, having an image under any other name won't show because the template doesn't know it exists. -- Icon-Norway.png Mikhail Alexander | Talk 06:14, 1 August 2012 (PDT)
Thank you for the information --Icon-Bulgaria.png galenaandrea 06:51, 1 August 2012 (PDT)

Plans for March and April 2014

Hello mate, how are you? I am trying to create a list of things that have to be done, so take a look. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Click here to talk with me baby! ;) 06:30, 1 March 2014 (PST)

Blimey Andy, been a while eh? I'll be honest, I'm not really keen on investing any more time in eRepublik or the wiki. I am however working on getting the vPopulus wiki up and running, and you're free to give me a hand if you'd like ;) Hope you're well, and good luck with that rather daunting looking list, hehe. --John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 14:25, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
If there is a referrer, send it to me, and link to the wiki :) --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 14:58, 13 March 2014 (UTC) ;) - I've been made SYSOP, so I'm really starting from scratch, building up templates and policies and getting the core content working. Your aid'd be most welcome. Come have a chat with us #vWiki Rizon.--John F. Baker Icon-UK.png (Talk | Contribs) 00:37, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Review proposition for IMAGE policy and vote for it in the Bar. Thank you. p.s. I always forget on vpopulus... --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 10:44, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
