Conservative Party

Hi. I saw your comments on the Conservative Party's talk page. You never need to ask permission to update things in the wiki. No one owns pages here. If you see something that needs to be done, then do it! :) --QJ Lincoln Talk To Me 18:50, 21 May 2009 (UTC)\

Thanks for the notice ... I just didn't want to step on anyone toes as I left the CVP on somewhat bad terms -- Scott Coyle USA Talk to a True Patriot 08:27, 2 August 2009 (UTC)


Information icon Thank you for your contributions to eRepublik Official Wiki. In the future, please use the preview button before you save your edit; this helps you find any errors you have made, reduces edit conflicts, and prevents clogging up recent changes and the page history. Below the edit box is a Show preview button. Pressing this will show you what the article will look like without actually saving it.

The "show preview" button is right next to the "save page" button and below the edit summary field.

It is strongly recommended that you use this before saving. If you have any questions, you can either write on the Bar or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 08:38, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

It's due to the fact that i the past i have lost everything because of this system and mixing that with the crappy truckstop wifi it's my only option. I would like to refrain from doing small edits but i have to so I don't lose all I do once again. That's why I quit working on it two months ago.

OK Mate, thank you for the feedback! ;) --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 09:09, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your understanding but I will try to keep my saving of edits limited and work on a solution as a back up - Scott Coyle A proud Patriot til death do us part Talk to a True Patriot


Hello, I would like to point out that you can always visit the Bar and leave your comment about current issues or vote for them, so feel free to visit it and leave your feedback which would be appreciated. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance?

Can we add your new avatar as new version of File:Citizen903271.png? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 11:24, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

That's fine, so I take it the best way to do things is upload future avatars under that file name? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scott Coyle (talkcontribs) on September 9, 2014

Yeah Scott, it would be much better that way, because people usually upload one avatar and replace it by another so the old one ends up to be forgotten. And also as a part of our image naming policy, at one time you can have 5 different avatars active as an example:
File:Citizen903271 v2.png,
File:Citizen903271 v3.png
File:Citizen903271 v2.jpg,

However, any of these files can be re-uploaded by new version as many times as you wish. For example, you could have easily created one file for your last updated avatars and simply re-upload that file with "new" images where you describe changes. Hope that I was helpful. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 09:39, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Avatar naming policy

Hello editor,
I have to remind you that we have a naming policy here and it applies to avatars too; we'd all be glad if you minded to rename all of your recent uploaded avatars according to it.

Have a nice day.

I would have no problem doing that if someone could explain to me as to why when I update a file it doesn't actually update, for example I tried to update my friend Tyler Bubblar s avatar with his recent change and it listed the new file but the image didn't actually update -- Scott Coyle USA Talk to a True Patriot

Scott, that is due to the cache. After you upload new version of the avatar, Just give some time that the system flushes old avatar. It usally even works that you upload new version, it seems wrong, but then when you go to actual article there is already the new image! ;) --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance?

Redirects & Sandboxes

Dear Scott, sorry for the late answer - for the redirects, we use them only in case that there are a lot of links pointing here and if it is something special that can't be found without redirect. For example... If you search for Scott in the search box here on the wiki, you will get all of the articles, files and users with Scott in the name. So, for that reason we DO NOT create Scott as redirect anywhere, as it is easy to find Scott and it would be impossible to know which Scott to redirect where. Hope that it is understandable, but in most cases please use common sense. Another good example of not using redirect is that I moved Federalist Party/sandbox to your Sandbox as test space is usernamespace not the main one ;) Best regards. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 06:42, 23 March 2015 (PDT)

I understand, that's what I figured you were going to say but I just wanted to make sure what the exact policy was so thank you for the information. As for that fed sandbox it was a temporary placeholder for the old structure and before I deleted it I wanted to offer the officers of the party a chance to compare and since they choose my design I completely forgot to move it so thanks for doing it for me. Sorry again about my lateness I am actually only on e/o weekend now :( but I will continue to try and keep things up to date as best I can since my fellow americans dont have much thought of doing it. I want to make it as easy as possible to get updated history on everything possible because if not I feel it could easily be lost knowledge. Thanks again. ---- Scott Coyle USA Talk to a True Patriot 11:26, 28 March 2015 (PDT)

Fed pictures and more

I am reviewing the list of unused files and for one month pictures starting with Fed are there, and even some of them have "doubles". Please use them or I will remove them. Thank you. You can review the list of unused files here, the Fed ones are at the bottom. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 11:52, 24 March 2015 (PDT)

Actually I have now noticed that you upload a lot of pictures that you don't use. Can we find some usage for them, or can I delete them? --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 11:56, 24 March 2015 (PDT)

I understand, I realized part way through that they were not all uniform with the file names so I reuploaded. So anything that I uploaded that isn't used feel free to delete, if I could I would have done so myself but I dont blame you guys for keeping that to select individuals. Of course though please don't delete anything that is a citizen avatar as I am trying to get all the famous and infamous members of the Federalist Party added into the wiki since no one on our side has gotten around to it yet. ---- Scott Coyle USA Talk to a True Patriot 11:23, 28 March 2015 (PDT)

Taxes, embargoes, and other stuff

Hello man, I don't know how did I skipped your question, but the answer is: We are working on fixing the bot who was doing this automatic. If you want, you can use {{Taxes}} template to update taxes manually until we fix the other things. Best regards. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance?
