The main page is going to get an overhaul. Put any ideas you may have for the overhaul here. Basically, all the stuff on there now is going to be relegated to other pages, because it's starting to take up too much screen space.--Pyroguy 17:46, 23 May 2008 (PDT)

Number System

I was just reading the 3volution topic, and I noticed aonther difference from Australia to USA; numeral systems. In australia you use decimals between every 3 powers of 10 and use a comma as zero (three thousand and one half is 3.000,5), but in the US we use decimals as zero and sometimes commas every 3 powers of 10 (three thousand and one half is 3,000.5). What should people use? --Pyroguy 11:32, 8 March 2007 (CST)

Community Portal Page

Now that I've spiffied up the Community Portal, is there any chance of it getting on the front page? Adam 13:53, 15 February 2007 (CST)

I would really hope so. You did an awesome job. -Pyroguy

Religions and Important Locations Sections Needed

Yeah, we really need a Religion section and an Important location section... Place like Whitesands and religions need a place that they can be found easily -Sheepe

Spelling of Organisation

Not Organization!

Organisation is really spelled organization. There's no s. PLEASE,PLEASE edit the wiki so it reflects this correct spelling; it is bothering me a lot. -Pyroguy 04/27/06 14:34:18 EST

It may be spelt with a z in America, in Australia (and the rest of the english speaking world iirc) it's spelt with a s. I vote to leave the spelling as is. --Rocky 19:39, 28 April 2006 (CDT)

Well, what are we going to use... U.S. English or British(/Aussie) English? -Pyroguy

As indicated by my previous comment, I suggest we use British English. --Rocky 20:12, 28 April 2006 (CDT)

Meh, I would rather it be U.S. English, considering most visitors will be from the U.S. (if the game becomes popular in all english countries about the same amount, atleast). What do other people think? -Pyroguy

Most of the devs are Aussies. Suck it up :) --—Fuzzy (talk  ) 18:18, 28 May 2006 (CDT)

Let's use both?

I have an idea for a compromise: Whoever makes the page/heading/whatever first, gets to choose the spelling (and no changing of the spelling to the other version of the spelling). There's really no reason to argue over spelling differences and that seems like the best way to accomodate everyone. --Sergeant Hobo 20:51, 28 April 2006 (CDT)

Yeah, but that will make inter-wiki links confusing (say I use organization but have to link to organisation; blech). I so wish the wiki had a different way of internal linking; like it does external linking, with the link and a different text. -Pyroguy

Redirection Lesson

-It does. You can use #REDIRECT [[page you want it redir'd to]] to have a page automatically forward somewhere else, effectively linking the two. --—Fuzzy (talk  ) 18:18, 28 May 2006 (CDT)

Current Events Link

Could do with a current events link on the main page (I am aware it is in the side menu). --Cut Throat 12:38, 18 February 2007 (GMT)

History Page

I had a brainstorm for a good addition to the wiki. Simply put, it'll be a category called "History." There, we can kind of write up the history for individual countries and such. The Timeline could be relegated to just kind of an overview and is expanded through the new History category. --Sergeant Hobo 13:35, 29 April 2006 (CDT)

Yeah, I like that idea. Then we could link specific (momentous) history articles to the timeline, too. -Pyroguy

Scrutiny Needed Page Link

Title pretty much explains it. I usually go through every once in a while in an attempt to rouse out the rotting topics, a direct link on the front would help. -Sheepe

There is a link to the Scrutiny Needed list in the second box of the right hand column, but it could definately stick out more. -Pyroguy


"my country got tooled by Canada and the religious right at the same time. --Bakkrosa 14:46, 9 February 2006 (MST)"
I knew it! We forgot Mexico!

The mexican invasions of 2012?

hahaha, well mexico has it's own beef, check atlas notes... poor america... even your citizens love to see you fall --Bakkrosa 15:59, 9 February 2006 (MST)

Some of you may have noticed that the UDC actually owns what ws formerly Mexican territory, tho no one has tried to explain this. ;)


Are they extinct?

What should do about this? Maybe say some creatures (Like bunnies) went extinct? 'Sides, unhappiness causes people to spend more... -Sheepe

actually, it'd be good if we mention in passing in some articles that something got wiped out, like we assume the reader already knows... --Bakkrosa 15:59, 9 February 2006 (MST)

Biology Section

I sorta went ahead without looking here first, and added "Biology" to the Ecology article. I tried to leave it reasonably open ended. I think you can get my thoughts on the subject from that. Keep in mind when reading that it is true that in an environment, if it doesn't kill the animal, radiation and shorter life spans do accelerate darwinian evolution. If you two don't like it, thats fine, just add needs scrutiny. - Lord of the Doubt

Seems fine to me --Feanix 04:55, 2 April 2006 (CDT)

Add the New Player Guide?

I just had an idea: why couldn't we add the Dystopia new player guide to the wiki? Seems like a good home for it. --Sergeant Hobo 21:20, 3 April 2006 (CDT)

there will be two versions. a flash version on the main site that tells the basics and very short synopsis and how tos on the maps, then a more expanded larger version on the wiki. --urinal-cake 14:32, 28 April 2006 (CDT)

Sounds good. I was going to do a literal copy and paste of the existing New Player Guide and put it on the wiki. I guess I'll hold off on that. --Sergeant Hobo 15:00, 28 April 2006 (CDT)
