Hello Aridd, a nation named Peraguss keeps adding this into my ( Most Great Britannia ) wiki.:

The party dicourages interracial breeding, fearing that the "Britannic White Race" would be over run and other races would take over the government. The leaders of the party are completely single minded and have no regard for political process. The more power they attain the more obvious of there zealotry and the more aggressive thier supporters become.

It is racist and disgusting, and I want it stopped now. He has already gone around my region telling people I put it in, so I had to ban him from my forum. I would like him banned from NSWiki for this DISGUSTING racist vandalism, or at least blocked from editing MY NSWiki, or My region's NSWiki.

Thank you very much for your time.

I'm on it. I've left a note in the article's talk page, and in user Peraguss' talk page. We can't ban a user without first asking him to stop what he is doing, but I'm now aware of the situation and will be monitoring it. Aridd 23:42, 5 October 2006 (GMT)
Thank you very much, he had also edited my region's page ( Empires Of Earth ), but he changed it back, so no worries about that. So again, thank you. Also, I did a little editing to that article to make it less POV as you suggested, it needs a major update as it is, so you can expect it will be better with time. Thanks for getting on it so fast :)

Hello, Could you please revert the Empires Of Earth and Most Great Britannica articles. NAZI symbols were put in them, and I am almost postive it was peraguss again! Thank you for your help, I do not know how to revert articles.

I've Fixed it, never mind :( *sighs*

Re-writing Antarcticad

Hi, I've done a major re-rite of the Antarcticad article. I'd appreciate it if you had a look at it to confirm if anythng else should be done. Thanks. Willd 14:47, 11 June 2006 (GMT)

Comrade Martin

It seems pretty clean now. Why do you still insist its unclean? Change it yourself if you see something clearly wrong.

Regarding the Nation v. Character ordeal, it was moved to Characters, but it deals with the involvement of a character representable only through the nation. The character us an extension of the nation, and thus in order to discuss the character the nation must also be discussed. Besides, its just the one info box.

response to cbbc thing.

Just cause the burgers have mea in them does not mean they slaughter their meat. it was clearly stated in the official thread that the CBVBC bys its meat fro other companies. --swilatia 16:23, 6 July 2006 (GMT)

I am Congo--Kinshasa


How is it vandalism when it is my page?

access problems

I was wondering Am I banned from my own page and the Scandinavian page..... because I cannot access the links Scandinavia or the Odhinnia. Edit.... Nix that...... it started working again.....

-thanks Erikr Haakon of Odhinnia

The Real Frestonia

Hello Aridd,

Since you are the sysop who has been involved in the events between me and Odhinnia recently, I am turning to you. I am not a registered user on NSWiki, eventhough it seems someone (guess who) has created a user account under my nation name. I am a long time NS player, controlling a nation called Frestonia and I am also the founder of the region Fennoscandia. This is something that no doubt can be verified by comparing my IP adress as logged here on NSWiki with my IP adress as logged on Something which I actually humbly request that you do in order to sort this mess out.

As you are aware, after I contested the neutrality of an article ("Fennoscandian Split") that concerned my nation and its region, I have been continuously harassed during the past few days by the user Odhinnia, who has created articles about my NS nation and its region, filling them with various malicious content.

Surely, there must be some kind of code of conduct here? Surely a user cannot be allowed to create at will articles about OTHER player's nations and regions and fill them with vicious slander, derogatory comments and various tripe?

If I want to have a Wiki article about a nation I control or its region, then surely that must be MY decision and MY decision alone? If another player creates an article about MY nation and I have no interest in having such a page, then surely i can't be expected to accept being told that there is an article about my nation now, so I'm just going to have to live with it? Again; the decision whether I want to have an article about my nation or not MUST be mine alone to make.

I request that the previously mentioned procedure for verifying who is who in this situation is carried out. Further, I request that the pages Frestonia and Fennoscandia are deleted. And finally, I request that the user Odhinnia is blocked from NSWiki, since it is obvious that he is not fit to be trusted with the responsibility of creating and editing Wiki articles seriously, but is prone to childish, vindictive vendettas, namecalling, slander and harassment.

Thank you,

[The Real Frestonia]

I can't do an IP check on, but I'm going to see if it's possible for someone to do that. Aridd 23:55, 10 February 2007 (GMT)

Thank you, that would be much appreciated! :)

[The Real Frestonia]

Frestonia, we have the information we need to determine whether you are who you say you are but it will involve you answering some simple authentication questions off the site to avoid interference. Do you have an instant messaging program or an email address from which we can contact you? (( Pacitalkia )) Time sent: 20:39, 11 February 2007 (GMT)

That is splendid. Yes, I do. Either MSN, Skype or e-mail would work fine with me. How and where can I provide you with the contact information you need?


Telegram it to me or email me through this site. (( Pacitalkia )) Time sent: 00:29, 13 February 2007 (GMT)

Thank You

I'm sorry I hadn't realized about User things and Articles on nations being different. Thank you though for your help. It is much appreciated! Ian John Locke II 22:30, 20 February 2007 (GMT)

RE: RE: Thank You

Will do, is there anyway other than watching to like add you to a buddylist btw? [Other than AIM of course]

I don't use them either, I'm always "online" but I never answer anyone unless it is important Ian John Locke II 04:31, 21 February 2007 (GMT)

How do you vandalize a page you created? [unsigned comment by User: ]

Adding offensive contact to NSwiki, such as personal attacks against players, is considered vandalism even if you created the article. You're welcome to add useful, constructive content to NSwiki, however. Aridd 11:13, 22 February 2007 (GMT)

Vandalism on my Page

I'm getting tired of my page being vandalized. I vandalprotected it and don't know what I do now. Jaredcohenia 05:54, 6 April 2007 (GMT)


I can most certainly assure you that the vandalism in question (this) has absolutely no relation to myself whatsoever. Heck, reading the edit, there is no vandalism at all in the edit in question! I stay logged onto this primary account while editing, and furthermore, a quick look over of several articles I have previously worked on reveals that my IP is unrelated to said vandalism as well. That said, I would appreciate it if you did not jump to unwarranted conclusions. Willink 18:52, 6 April 2007 (GMT)

Thank you

Many thanks for warning user about vandalism to our page. I have tried to correct the dispute by rewording the page.

Protection request

United Elias Has been blanked, changed, and edited in an irresponsible manner frequently in the last month by random ips. I have reverted most of the edits and I have made numerous requests that the users explain their edits, and only now has one come out with a rather vague disagreement with some of the content in the article. But they have not attempted to discuss any changes before making them and in order to keep an edit war from starting I request that it be protected from editing for the time being.John 16:56, 13 May 2007 (GMT)

Temporary lists

Sorry, I hadn't realised I wasn't supposed to have temporary lists. I'll change it ASAP.

Me a vandal, thank you!

Yes, it apears that you are here to revert. I am quite skilled with wikia coding and functions. Goodbye, feel free to have me bvanned, I can easily avoid them.-- 14:05, 4 June 2007 (GMT)


Errr. is this how i use this...i hope so...anyway. yes i will be filling all the stubs out just busy with exams so i cant do the full development. Is there something im meant to do regarding them? And how were you reading them?

Re: Stubs

Alright i'll keep that in mind. Thank you

How is merging done?

Help is appreciated. --Gibraltarland

Ok, the NSGibraltarland article can be deleated. Thanks!

How to centre the flag in the nation infobox

Errinundera is a pacifist nation so doesn't have a coat of arms. Accordingly, how can I centre the flag in the nation infobox? It looks lopsided as it stands now. Thanks. willd 12:55, 27 June 2007 (GMT) Thanks again. It's late now - I'll follow up your suggestions soon. willd 14:19, 27 June 2007 (GMT) I'm going to have a go at designing my own nation infobox sometime in the future. willd 16:52, 29 June 2007 (GMT)

Disambiguating Delegate and Delegate, Errinundera

I've put notes at the start of each article but there really should be a disambiguation page (especially after I do an article on the province by the same name). Catch is, the disambiguation page should have the title of Delegate. That would mean creating a new page - UN Delegate and transferring the current info over to the new page. Am I permitted to do that? willd 17:02, 29 June 2007 (GMT)

Nominated for deletion

Over a month ago I nominated two pages for deletion. These are under construction nation pages for a nation which has been gone for over a year. For some reason and without comment, they have been passed over each time someone has gone through the candidates for speedy deletion. The pages are USSNA and USSNAtemp, and I would like at least an explanation. John 22:17, 16 July 2007 (GMT)


I'll remember to show changes next time. Thanks for the tip! Ethan Smith 12:24, 1 September 2007 (GMT)

Political parties

You're quite welcome. Thanks for taking care of the deletion.--Ember Nickel 14:49, 5 September 2007 (GMT)

Moving my Region

You recently moved my region 'United Freelands of Gutlich' to 'Gutlich'. However, as that is the full region name (as opposed to it being a nation with United Freelands as its title), it has messed up the Info Box slightly, as NSEconomy and the other links do not work. Would it be possible to reverse this? --Gutta 14:15, 9 September 2007 (GMT)

New category

I created a category for UN ambassadors.

  1. Do you think those listed under the new "UN Diplomats" category should be removed from the "Diplomats" category in the interests of streamlining categorization?
  2. Do you think the name should changed to something more proper, like "Diplomats at the United Nations" or "Diplomats to the United Nations"?
  3. Do you think it's a little much to have an entirely separate category for this? If so, delete with my apologies.

{I seem unable to link to any categories on this page; that's why the links aren't there. Sorry about that.}

Thanks, Omigodtheykilledkenny 20:30, 26 September 2007 (GMT)

Username change

Hello again,

I would like my username to be changed to Marian voluntarily because I have a new nation, and a new nation deserves a owner with a unique name. I will clearly indicate in my new userpage of the changeover.


--Constantina 17:39, 30 October 2007 (GMT)

It would be worth noting the changes in the homepage to avoid confusion. that would be grateful.

What is a TG?, and PNG image support

Does TG stand for Telegram or something else?

And can will NSWiki support PNGs with transparency?

Thank you

--Marian 14:21, 3 November 2007 (GMT)

Re: What is a TG?, and PNG image support

Okay, thank you; keep up the good work!

--Marian 14:47, 3 November 2007 (GMT)

Blank Pages

Aridd, I found a hoard of blank or unmeaningful pages, some of which are listed here.

The ones I mean have either 'please delete this', nothing or a single link to another category.

New style template message

I have a new-style template message for the Out of Date Sports Article and I would like to replace the old-style one please.

Is it okay?
