One comment: You might want to cut down the size and number of graphics for each article; they kind of overwhelm the senses. BoArthur

All wonderful images, but there's indeed some truth in what Dan writes. Ronald, why wouldn't you create a website for Paraná and/or for the entire LAU? You have so much wonderful stuff around here, that it would certainly be worth the effort! You want to know my opinion? Well, here it is: the most important product of IB is still our various websites. They are our front portal, the place where we show off to the world what we are doing. In my eyes, the wiki is merely a repository of info, a big notebook, and a discussion platform. Sure, one can do a lot to make a wiki article look nice, but a wiki always remains a wiki! Frankly, I'd feel sorry if this wiki took over the role of our network of various colourful websites. Cheers, --IJzeren Jan 11:58, 28 Sep 2005 (PDT)
I, personally, think however that this wouldn't be that bad as it might seem as now it might be hard, especially for newcomers, to find everything what was written about Ill Bethisad and hence is QSS and non-changable as it is spread around the net; it would also be more interesting for newbies to be able to find all available information on this wiki, if everything would be written here then Ill Bethisad would seem less empty (I mean, much more things are thought-about and written about than might seem from seeing this wiki); Google search for Bethisad material isn't a good option, because many of the concepts has their similarly-named counterparts in real world and therefore google search on for example "Lithuania", "Tejas" or such gets mostly different results than ones from Ill Bethisad. Websites might still be kept, of course, but I think it would be good if information and maps from various websites could be copied into this wiki. Original creator, or one who contributed much, might be allowed to put his/her signature and maybe a link to his/her Bethisad-related website at the bottom of article (and such things as instructions how to learn some conlang would be left only in those websites, as there is not much point to have them on wiki; there would be links from article on wiki about that conlang though); all major contributors might also be listed in talk page. That could help with copyright things and such if the attribution is one of reasons why people preffers websites; that this is a wiki it does not means that we should completely follow wikipedia or such.

OK, thanks so much, friends - I'll certainly think about it! Jan, I agree with your view of the wiki's role. Much of what I have done for the LAU can indeed go to a separate website. As soon as I have the time for that wholesale enterprise... And BoArthur, I dó understand your objection about too many graphics. I think I'm able to put myself into the viewer's / reader's shoes. Watch this space (but not too soon!). ;-) Kyrmse 12:12, 28 Sep 2005 (PDT)

Roundel names

There is a proper name for the roundel rouge that you might want to use in the blazon: torteau. Charlie 21:59, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Ethnic Groups

This place probably has a lot of whacky towns that don't speak a word of Portuguese and keep 19th-20th Century ethnic traditions alive. Could be fun to write about. Misterxeight 13:27, 18 September 2018 (PDT)
