Rudeness?

Not rude - not a worry. :) The borders are fine, was just thinking to move the Dalmatia-Sanjak border just a little bit east towards Pljevlja-Priboj. The rest is fine. And: if we agreed on the changes, then all's fine! :) Dalmatinac

Yeah, those are the maps I was referring to. They look good, besides, though. :) Dalmatinac

Maps

They look good.

Especially the first one. Not sure re moving the borders, I think they're kinda good as they stand on the map now - perhaps just a *little* bit eastwards - buffer space that D would've grabbed. *shrug*.

The second... it'd take some reworking of QSS, but I think we can certainly work something out to have Serbia at its peak at that time, too. This looks like a good start, anyways.

Dalmatinac

Welcome to the IB project.

You are right about the the usage of *here* and *there* and about how the IB operates. I believe you could edit the pages related to Serbia; for a start, you might want to read what was written about the area (historical things such as CSDS), see the world map. Then you might think of some interesting ideas on how the known differences in history *here* and *there* would have further influenced Serbia, its history, language, geography and so on and write articles about that (when writting a new article, don't forget to add the {{proposal}} tag so that others could see it and discuss it/say suggestions before it is entered into the IB world as a fact); you might as well want to participate at various discussions in the talk pages of the articles or at the Lla Dafern or propose your own discussions/proposals there. There are many possibilities. Enjoy editing taking part in the IB project. Abdul-aziz 16:39, 12 July 2006 (PDT)

I see. By the way note in the World map that Serbia (marked by number "3" there) is somewhat smaller in IB than in the real world, therefore population figure of 9 million might be too large unless, of course, there could be some explaination about reasons for a high population density. Abdul-aziz 16:47, 12 July 2006 (PDT)

Welcome George! Yes, you used the terms quite correctly. May I say for you to go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/conculture and introduce yourself? I'm sure that We'll be glad to have a "local" perspective! You'll also want to e-mail Dalmatinac/Frank and introduce yourself. I'm sure he'll appreciate your participation and collaboration! Dan/BoArthur 17:56, 12 July 2006 (PDT)

Regarding the "adjective" in the template, I believe it is not always used, but I believe the purpose of it is to add the name of the nation - "6 million Serbians", "4,5 million Lithuanians". Or just "inhabittants" might be written there. Others might correct me if I am wrong about the usag eof that field however. Abdul-aziz 01:55, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

Zlatiborica, please can you stop editing Serbia without first presenting your ideas on the conculture list. Thank you. Deiniol 11:51, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

The general ideas (when you do introduce some new facts, that are different from what is in the real world and when you want to explain why these differences exist so that others could understand it) might as well be mentioned in Talk:Serbia. As I underand, the current article on Serbia is not yet the final one (as there are many non-existant images) therefore you may also want to add {{Wip-2}} (Work in progress template) at the top of the page so that everybody would understand that it is not a final version yet and is up to discussion. Abdul-aziz 13:13, 13 July 2006 (PDT)
Dzordji, could you actually prepare your proposal off-line and then upload it as a cohesive e-mail to the yahoo group? That's more the way we're looking to work. Thanks! BoArthur/Management

You've got Mail

on my talk page. BoArthur 15:06, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

The rights

As you have probably noticed, now every IB user was given the rights of editor, therefore you could edit articles. Abdul-aziz 08:33, 21 July 2006 (PDT)

Yes, at the present time a large number of the IB users prefer conculture over the wiki as place for proposals now it seems. Although as far as I understand when one is the caretaker of some territory he/she could add some information regarding that territory without making a proposal, but this is limited only to some information (i.e. things that are related only to that particular country). I might be wrong though. Abdul-aziz 09:08, 21 July 2006 (PDT)

Things that do not affect other nations (such as the cheese and wine of Louisianna, for example) don't need to be proposalized. Other things that DO affect nations (like the historical borders of Serbia) do need to be proposalized, and need to be presented on Conculture. BoArthur 09:55, 21 July 2006 (PDT)
Yes, certainly. --George D. Bozovic (talk) 10:15, 21 July 2006 (PDT)
