I don't mean to be rude, but isn't it true that now when someone gets around to writing up a proposal for Illinoise or the Bahamas or Alba Nuadth they'll just have to recreate the work I already did and which you just deleted? Looking up the flags, putting in the template, etc.? Okay, that wasn't a lot of work, but why have someone eventually do it all over again? Zahir 00:04, 21 December 2005 (PST)

Well, there was no flag on those pages. I've left the ones that had something on them, even if just a flag. Nik 00:06, 21 December 2005 (PST)
Okay. I thought they had flags at least. My bad. Me very tired. Zahir
I have to say that I'm with Nik here. We have a lot of visitors here, and in my opinion, pages that contain nothing but an empty template just look bad. They suggest something that isn't there. If someone arrives at page, following a blue link, he is probably curious or looking for something else than just an empty template. And we don't know when such a country will get a new caretaker; it might be tomorrow, it might be after a year, and it might be never. Frankly, I think even pages that contain only a flag ought to be deleted. After all, we also have NAL Provincial Flags and the page NAL-SLC, and they contain all we know at present about these provinces. Articles should contain at least one or two unique facts, otherwise they are just static in my opinion. --IJzeren Jan 02:27, 21 December 2005 (PST)



Do you see the possible use I see for the Felipese? BoArthur

Meaning only for the proposal that we're working on?

Changing of Categories

Does that really do anything? If it does, what is it supposed to do? BoArthur

It changes how it's alphabetized on the category page. For example, by changing [[Category:People]] to [[Category:People|Earhart]], it causes the Amelie Earhart page to show up under E on the People Category, rather than under A Nik 16:47, 3 January 2006 (PST)
OK; I wondered if it actually was doing anything. :)

Free Of Spam?

You spoke a tad too soon. We were attacked tonight. :) BoArthur 16:29, 5 January 2006 (PST)

Well, at least it wasn't too bad Nik 20:07, 5 January 2006 (PST)

ATOE Articles

Aren't we past due for an update? Would you like to be the one to do it?BoArthur

Colonia Solaris

Were you going to critique it for me? BoArthur


Are you ignoring me? :C BoArthur

Japanese Hutterites

Nik, do you have any problem with this?

The Japanese Hutterites are not European, but ethnic Japanese that have accepted the teachings and embraced the lifestyle and have been accepted by the Hutterite leadership as a Dariusleut Colony.

If you do, feel free to edit it, but the article Hutterite is extracted direct from *here* with some very minor changes. BoArthur 11:27, 26 January 2006 (PST)

They exist *here*, then? I'd have to read up on how they came about *here*, but off the top of my head, I see no reason it'd be different *there* Nik 19:50, 26 January 2006 (PST)
The only mention I found was here. BoArthur
Hmm ... I've found a couple more references via Google. It seems it started from one small group of Japanese Christians who (independently) chose to follow the same Biblical passages as the Hutterites, and were later accepted as Hutterites, after discovering them in a worldwide search for other Christian groups following the same passages. So, it doesn't seem inevitable that the same would happen *there*. By the same token, though, I can't see any reason why it couldn't happen, so, why not? Let's leave them Nik 20:30, 26 January 2006 (PST)


On Miami, you put "The Miami nation is closely related to the Illinoise nation." Did you mean a native state? I don't mean to be rude, but would a native state put the English flag on their flag? --Quentin 07:52, 10 February 2006 (PST)

That is an interesting question. --Sikulu 07:58, 10 February 2006 (PST)
Nothing was known of Illinoise at the time I wrote that, and I hadn't looked at their flag. I'd been working under the assumption at that time that Illinoise was a native state. The Miami tribe is, indeed, related to the Illinois tribe. Perhaps I should rewrite that as something like "... is closely related to the Illinoise nation, whose name is the source of the Province of Illinoise" Nik 20:18, 10 February 2006 (PST)


Samoo kaj Polinezio covers what is *here* - French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Niue, American Samoa and Western Samoa. Most of this vast expanse is derelict, Rondurobo cities, of which Nova Jerusalemo is the only one left, home to apx. 200 inhabitants, and is located on *here*'s Papeete.--Quentin 13:32, 19 February 2006 (PST)

Edits by Quentin

Why'd you revert his edit? He's been categorizing stuff all day... BoArthur 18:33, 24 February 2006 (PST)

Yeh, I guess you should agree with him on what categories are needed before doing edits as now it seems you are reverting each other which just takes time... Abdul-aziz 02:04, 25 February 2006 (PST)
