If you delete something that looks like text I've just copied from Wikipedia, would you mind pasting it on User:BoArthur/Source? There was a number of articles I meant to start but never got around to; this would help me to remember to get around to completing them. BoArthur


You probably shouldn't delete useful/temporary redirects, such as Antarctic Lithuanian. While now it (used to) redirect to Reformed Lithuanian as they are relatively similar and the Reformed Lithuanian article mentions Antarctic Lithuanian, but eventually I might create a seprate article in place of that redirect, and it will be hard to search everywhere where [[Reformed Lithuanian|Antarctic Lithuanian]] to change it to just [[Antarctic Lithuanian]].

Question regarding the Republic of Ezo

Hello Nik, I don’t know if you heard about me, I am a sort of new member, so don’t really know everything yet. I am mostly creating images of the rank insignias and uniforms. So, Marc, I know him for a while, suggest to contact you regarding the insignias for Ezo. Therefore, can I make the insignias for the Republic during SNORist backed government period? Btw, if I do them, you are going to be the first to approve them.

Thank you, Ziba

I made a mistake - I mean 1755, as you guessed. And this whole state thing is doing me in- what is the correct terminology? --Quentin 05:17, 28 April 2006 (PDT)

I'm not sure. It depends on what you're trying to suggest. If you mean that they were setting up a government with the intention of being part of the NAL, it would be a province. Nik 19:50, 30 April 2006 (PDT)

From Talk:World map

as for the New Guinea it is partitioned in the following way: western part is a part of Maluku, the majority of the island is independent country of Papua (probably granted independence by Kingsland as mentioned in Kingsland article), the outlaying islands (what is in the real world Solomon Islands and Bismarck Archipelago) are still an Australasian territory (not granted independence together with the rest of New Guinea pehaps - maybe still a part of Kingsland or a separate entity inside Australasia). In the north of New Guinea there is also a Japanese territory (Admiral Yamamoto land) and several cities controlled by Bornei-Filipinas and Mazapahit. The explaination behind this is that the Chinese, being a more powerful seafaring power than in the real world, had colonised the northern coast of New Guinea before Austalasians (after all, New Guinea was perhaps the only major island in region not claimed by other powerful state in the area) and this Chinese colony was partitioned among the nations that fought against China in the Great Oriental War after China was defeated. But I know little about Papuan culture, therefore if someone will have better suggestions or would want to "take control" of New Guinea of course additions to the map will be welcome.

Coizumi or Cuizumi?

Which is the correct analog in IB romanization? BoArthur 21:24, 17 August 2006 (PDT)

Coizumi, just as *here* it's Koizumi Nik 21:28, 17 August 2006 (PDT)

North Slavic in Japanese wiki

Hi Nik! Today, I just stumbled on this. Unfortunately, I cannot read any Japanese at all. Would you be so kind to have a look and tell me what it's about? Is it a decent article? It appears to have been AFDed already! Cheers, —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 11:13, 27 August 2006 (PDT)

I'm not very good at Japanese either. Can't really tell anything about that. Sorry! Nik 20:51, 27 August 2006 (PDT)

Ignoring You?

No, I'm not...I've seen your calls, I'm just trying to stabilize life after starting school this week, still trying to work and having to move because evil neighbors infested our building with I'll try to call you once we're settled in, on Sunday, if that works for you? :) BoArthur 09:00, 8 September 2006 (PDT)

kind request for help

hi there, as i expect you to know know little bit more japanese than me, i am kindly asking you to overview my creations. i've tried, with my funny japanese, to do little bit of naming to flavour the after action report in Hearts of Iron and i would not like to blame myself too much. so, it this correct?

この世共栄圏の形成 - (konoyo kyou-ei-ken no katachidzuku) shaping of the World Co-Prosperity /Sphere/

Jan II. 06:04, 9 October 2006 (PDT)

I think the first is right, the second is not, though. "World Co-Prosperity Sphere" would be, I believe, sekai kyoueiken (世界共栄圏). I think 世界共栄圏の形成 sekai kyoueiken no keisei would be correct. Katachizuku is an incorrect reading of 形成 Nik 20:09, 9 October 2006 (PDT)

Regarding *Here's* East Jersey (i.e. Oxbridge)

Just out of curiosity, but shouldn't Oxbridge be Scotish? Since it covers *here's* East Jersey, and since, presumably, whoever founds the English part of Pennsylvaania would found it for the same reason as Penn did *here*, the Quakers in Oxbridge would promote Scotish influences rather than Quaker influences, like they did *here*. Or am I mistaken?

I mentioned this on the Rhode Island article's Talk page as well as in Lla Dafern, since Rhode Island is, apparantly, Scotish. See also here. --Sikulu 07:04, 8 November 2006 (PST)

Adding my own couple of pennies--I'd like to read an answer to this one myself. Zahir 08:48, 8 November 2006 (PST)
After some thought and reading this article, perhaps Jacobia would be Scotish as well (or perhaps an Anglo-Scotish Condominium)? --Sikulu 03:05, 18 November 2006 (PST)
Hmmmm...might I suggest this idea be moved to the Jacobia article? Zahir 06:25, 18 November 2006 (PST)

Sysop request on althistory

Hey, Nik, what do you think of the request of this gent: to be a sysop?

let me know. BoArthur

Wow, it's been a while since I visited there ... Your call, mon ami Nik 19:57, 17 August 2007 (PDT)

Seican Zuidō

This was built *there*, ne? Wikipedia:Seikan Tunnel BoArthur 21:41, 24 August 2007 (PDT)

I'm not sure. Hokkaido was a separate nation until the early 90's, remember. If it was built, it would've been much later, and might not be done yet Nik 22:17, 25 August 2007 (PDT)
If that's the case, they could actually build it to handle the Xincansen, as opposed to the retro-fit they're currently working on. And I had forgotten the Ezo Republic. Interesting. BoArthur 18:01, 27 August 2007 (PDT)


You raised some concerns about Henua's main POD back when I first wrote it. Since then I've been reading a lot about Easter Island, and I've reworded Henua#History a little. I have worked the main POD, that the Henua better managed their resources beginning around 1550; I fit it into the system of tapu that all Polynesian societies used. I like it much better and would love to hear what you think. Benkarnell 13:06, 14 November 2007 (PST)


Hello Nik. Being Greek I have taken a great interest in Greece and her articles. Awhile back you said you weren't interested HOWEVER do you think you'd be willing to work together to better her page? Misterxeight 19:46, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

East Asian Federation

Talk:East Asian Federation: Henua humbly requested observer status in the East Asian Federation. I've rethought the dates and believe the request was made in May 2007, and hopefully granted that November. Sound OK? Benkarnell 21:50, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
