Country Template

Any chance you could design a template for a corporation? Including

  • name
  • location
  • owners
  • Logo
  • Colours
  • value
  • Link to ingame profile
  • corporation song

And also a template for the same but company insted of corporation exluding song
I hear your a geek so it would be great if you could do it, im sure we could arrange some gold to come your way if you would do it for us!

It was 10 minutes work, so I ask no gold --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 22:32, 5 August 2008 (BST)


So what exactly the bot does? Can it correct english errors? If it can I would like you to revise the Portugal article because I have made it all but since Iam not perfect it's possible that I have made errors. Thanks :)DrogbaPT Hail ePortugal! Drogy man

My bot can do anything it is written for, for example it can:
  • Change every word "a" with word "b" (useful, for example, if you change a parameter name in a template)
  • Protect pages
  • In general, everything that is repetitive and understandable by a machine

I see :). That seems cool then :P. And thanks for formating the Manual of War :P. It's much better now :D. Btw can your bot protect this page please ;): DrogbaPT Hail ePortugal! Drogy man

BotProtecting means I start the bot and it automatically reverts every change, it's useful only when someone goes on an editing spree, waiting for admin to intervene--Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 17:52, 5 August 2008 (BST)

Ah I see :). DrogbaPT Hail ePortugal! Drogy man

Unused images

Please clean up unused images, maybe remove only pictures older than 7 days, this would suffice to clean most of them --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 14:50, 22 August 2008 (BST)

We will delete them. Thanks for the suggestion. Also you used the wrong talk page - User talk:Admin is the correct one. --Admin 14:54, 22 August 2008 (BST)
Whops, you're right --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 14:56, 22 August 2008 (BST)
We have deleted all the unused files. We did not delete two of them - we find them interesting. We kindly ask you to see if there are any broken image links after this mass deletion. --Admin 15:27, 22 August 2008 (BST)


I see that you wanted to change the V1 page. You can use the info here: to update and improve that page. --Belea2008 Hail eSouth Africa! chew the fat 15:49, 22 August 2008 (BST)

My Templates

I did a number of military decorations for the eUK Military, but we haven't officially awarded any yet - so they are lying around unused (other than the ones I tested in my Sandbox). Reflist was an attempt to copy code from the main Wikipedia to try and get a Reflist for articles, but I couldn't get it to work so I blanked the page and left a note in the Bar. Clear is a useful tool to stop things overlapping when you have indented boxes (such as awards or template boxes), anyone can use it. Don't worry, none of those templates has been forgotten, honest!

I was sure most of them were not forgotten, otherwise I would have put the Deletion template on them
About the reflist, if the template is to be deleted just add the deletion template to it --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 21:03, 22 August 2008 (BST)

Bot's auto updates

Hi! I think that your bot has updated my pages erasing all blank fields from the templates. Is it necessary? It was useful to me for remembering wich fields could be filled later on. --Sandtux Pakistan prevails TALK|HIST 19:56, 23 August 2008 (BST)

Which page?(btw it was probably me, not my bot, and you can always follow the link to the template below the edit field) --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 21:37, 23 August 2008 (BST)
Many, actually. I think that I can go on by checking the template link below. But, it's done for some purpouse? Does that slow down the wiki perfomance or something like? --Sandtux Pakistan prevails TALK|HIST 03:01, 24 August 2008 (BST)
No, it was a mistake, I should have commented them out instead of deleting them, it's just I like to see clean pages. --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 09:44, 24 August 2008 (BST)
Then I will restore them, because I feel more comfortable having the blank fields ready to use. Nevertheless, when editing pages that I did not originally wrote I will follow the author's previously used style. --Sandtux Pakistan prevails TALK|HIST 11:34, 24 August 2008 (BST)
Ok --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 21:30, 31 August 2008 (BST)

Regions listed in Templates category

I am wondering about all of the pages that are now listed in "Templates" Such as this one Jerusalem_district. I assume there is some sort of code in the region template that is automatically marking it in the Template category. I don't know enough to figure out what is going on. I don't mind fixing all of the region pages that have this issue if you can figure out what it is. I use the template category all the time and this clutters it up. --Q J Lincoln 15:09, 24 August 2008 (BST)

Fixed --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 21:30, 31 August 2008 (BST)
Thanks MiniBill, you are the KING OF TEMPLATES! --Q J Lincoln 21:45, 31 August 2008 (BST)


Can you use your bot to put an announcement on all User talk pages about this discussion? --Belea2008 Hail eSouth Africa! chew the fat 17:52, 30 August 2008 (BST)

I could add something like {{Hot}} in user pages, and admin can protect it and then everyone can use {{Hot}}'s talk page to ask admin to edit it, so that everyone can receive a notice of important things, what do you think of that idea? --Mini "Template boy" Bill Italian in the deep core wanna chat? 21:00, 31 August 2008 (BST)


Slurp... You must be hungry after all the awesome editing you've done to this Wiki, have some milk and a cookie as a reward!

For all your fantastic editing! I thought it was about time we had some sort of recognition of those who do the donkey work here...
