Welcome to the eRepublik Bar

 Remember to sign (~~~~) your comments! 

Speech balloon.png What is the bar?

The Bar is a place in which editors can exchange their ideas, or drink a beer.

After introducing yourself at the Community Portal, you can learn what changes need to be made, see what projects are going underway and take part in many active discussions. You are welcome to start a new discussion, but keep in mind that all articles have their own talk pages, and please remember to sign your comments!

In summary, how we treat each other does matter. It matters because, without empathy, our lives are shallow, self-centered and meaningless.

We need editors and translators!
If you are new and don't have any experience with wiki at all - ask for help in the Bar!
Dear editors and translators, we need you to:

Name Change

I have changed my in-game name again and I need my wiki to reflect that change... my sig is also out dated. Max Volumn (talk) 03:53, 26 February 2020 (PST)

All done. In terms of the signature I believe you will need to update that yourself in the settings --"Icon-eRepublik.png Gucio «Talk»" 00:40, 13 March 2020 (PDT)

Downtime next week

During next week (from Monday the 20th til Friday the 24th) in the late evening / early morning time (01:00 - 06:00 CET) there will be updates to certain templates so you can expect slower wiki or even some downtime in this period. Please try not to do any major updates in this period. Thank you for understanding. :) --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 06:42, 17 April 2020 (PDT)

{{ICitizen/Core}}, {{Citizen/Core}}, {{Rank/Switch‎‎}}, {{ELink‎}}, {{ELinkLaw}} corrections done; mostly HTTP --> HTTPS and some styling additions. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 20:35, 20 April 2020 (PDT)
{{IMilitary unit}} updated to match {{Military unit}}; testing to make sure it is fine will be done in upcoming days. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 18:30, 21 April 2020 (PDT)
Thanks for this AndyCro! Will any of these updates impact G-Bot? The bot now runs daily to update the region ownerships --"Icon-eRepublik.png Gucio «Talk»" 14:55, 22 April 2020 (PDT)
@Gucio: Heavy changes are done after the bot, so bot should NOT be affected. :) But do tell bot to update regions as United Kingdom, not UK xD --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 17:34, 22 April 2020 (PDT)
Review completed of: {{Country}}, {{ICountry}}, {{Alliance}}, {{IAlliance}}, {{Organization}}, {{Party}}, {{IParty}}, {{Region}}, {{IRegion}}. No need for major changes. {{IMilitary unit}} has some issues; requires more testing to be conducted and the fixes will be done in portions when fixes are ready to be implemented. No downtime period is to occur, the regular potential downtime for bot updates is from 02:00 - 02:15 CET every night, so try to not do large changes in that period. Thank you for your patience. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 16:05, 23 April 2020 (PDT)

October 2020 potential downtime

There could be a potential downtime due to a minor change to the LangMenu template on 26th of October (early morning; could have some effects during the whole day) so try not to make any super major changes without saving them somewhere out of wiki (e.g. Notepad, GDrive, etc.). Thank you for understanding. --AndyCro Icon-Croatia.png Do you need assistance? Then ask me! ;)) 05:21, 18 October 2020 (PDT)

Internationalization and templates

Due to the fact that this wiki tries to do internationalization it creates some very strange things. None of them are good. But that doesn't mean that we should add more problems to the pile.

One of those problems comes from somehow we have ended up with several distinct templates for the same thing. One template for the "english" version and one template for the other languages. For example: {{Citizen}} and {{iCitizen}}.

This is terrible in many ways, specially for keeping them both updated and looking the same.

So my question is, should we merge the two versions of such templates? Was/is there a reason that would cause something to break?
