New Nation Page

In order to standardize page formats and place standard data on certain pages, the following infoboxes have been created. Please place these at the top of the appropriate pages.

The template is named Infobox Nation, NOT Infobox YourNation'sName. Change only the data after an equals ( = ) sign, and the template will work as intended. Don't remove lines that aren't relevant, just blank them after the = and leave the |. Missing lines mess up the template.

To create your starter nation page, click the link below. Go to the Address Bar of your browser and change NationName to your nation's name, exactly as it appears in NationStates, without the pretitle (so Maxtopia, not The Republic of Maxtopia), and hit Enter on your keyboard. Then paste the standardized Infobox code below into the newly opened Edit window, and add appropriate information afterwards.

region=[[Region]] |

Characters are player representatives in roleplay (Speaker-Rrit, Dick Tator) or characters assumed in gameplay (Margaret, The Smoking Man), not the players themselves. You should not use the Character infobox on your user page, as that is for NSwiki user and/or NS player information. Yes, we know you're a character too, but leave the box off anyway.

Here's some code for the Character Infobox. There are four totally customizable fields in this one, since everyone seems to have a different conception of what's important to their character. As you can see in the Salusa example, you have a bit of flexibility with regards to field length. Captions are right-justified and small, Fields are centered.

Leave {{Infobox_Character | untouched, and add your choice of captions and fields between the = and the | or }}. Any fields not used will just not show up, but leave the blanks there anyway. The template needs them.


{{Infobox Character |
subject_name= | photo= |
caption1= | field1= |
caption2= | field2= |
caption3= | field3= |
caption4= | field4= }}
