Re: Your changing of 'US Alliance' to "Union of Sovereigns"

The correct, official title is US Alliance, not "Union of Sovereigns". That is the way it ought to be appear in NSWiki. I ought to be the undisputed expert on this; I brought the three founding regions together on this project and came up with the name.

Hmmm. I based the title on the Charter and Moldavi's welcome thread. I'll be happy to move it back (or you can) if you can point me to a link.
Incidentally, thanks for all of your contributions - you're really helping to flesh out the Gameplay side of NSwiki. --Goobergunch|? 12:18, 5 Oct 2004 (GMT)

There has always been some dispute about the name. "Union of Sovereigns Alliance" was what I came up with as a sort of prototype to something that would fit the acronym US Alliance. Unfortunately no one brought up a better name (even though I had meant for someone to do that) and nobody thought maybe "United Sovereigns" would be better, and it was adopted with little fanfare. Since the beginning the New Sparrowians wanted to call it the "Union of Sovereigns" in formal terms, but preferred to call itsimply "the Union". Because a Sparrowian created the message board that's what gets more spotlight.
It's no problem. If/when I ever get around to writing about the Atlantic (a project I've put off for almost a full year now, truth be told) I like to think it may be a major achievement for NSWiki. Until I get off my duff to do that I'll be happy working on all the other stuff, like the Pacific histories. That is, unless Frisbeeteeria totally eclipses me in every aspect :ph3ar:.

K-stan and weapons

Goober, you might want to have a chat with Kaukolastan. He's created about 20 new Categories today, pretty much all having to do with subdividing weaponry. -- Frisbeeteria 20:49, 7 Oct 2004 (GMT)

While I would like to have helped with the creation of an organized weapons and technology database, it seems that my efforts at categorizing have not been appreciated. I am vaporizing my sub-topics as I type (well, before and after, that is). I'm going to kill all the links, and move the few articles I feel are truly NS related into the broad categories already existing. In addition, my pure-tech posts will be redirected to the full Wikipedia equivelants. Just trying to help in my area of expertise, so I'm sorry about the trouble.  :(



Hey Goober, Blackbird/Cortath here.

This is fantastic...

Seriously, I'm "leftist" (let's be polite here) and the anarchistic feel of this community leaves me speechless. Amazing.

I'm happy to help out fleshing out gameplay. I made some minor changes to the RLA and ADN pages, hopefully I can do more when I have some time.

Pudding and

I dunno if this is the right place to bring this, but I read the bit on Admin and arbitration, and didn't know where else to stick this. I am the player behind SeOCC, Puddin being an amusing name associated with a particular picture of mine ...

Anyway, someone with the IP address has been violating the neutrality policy; I refer you to the entries on Pure Evil and the entries by that IP address in the history of the CACE entry. If this is the wrong place to bring this up, please tell me where. Gracias.

Thank you, sir, I will head on over. Gracias again.

This is the page that needs to be rolled back

How to submit the logo I created to you?

I have created a logo, but I don't know where and how can I submit the logo to you. --James2spooky 08:57, 17 Oct 2004 (GMT)


Well, I figured that since you knew about the new policy and such (which stipulated DEAT), I thought you would remember. Especially because the pages had been emptied by the user. :) (which was, I believe, you.) Anyway, sorry.

I'll give a more accurate description then DEAT! the next time. -- |Knoot|KNOOtalk 01:05, 23 Oct 2004 (GMT)

Nations with underscores

Whittier created _Susa_ today, and it was created as Susa. Needless to say, none of the automatics work, and it could cause disambig problems in the future. There's also a something something Anime region that ends in an underscore, and their page actually points to a similar region instead. Can you figure out how to make leading and trailing underscores be recognized by the wiki, or are we going to have to use {wrongname} on them all? Frisbeeteria Θtalk 15:04, 23 Oct 2004 (GMT)


I'd just like to report some vandalism against my article Hampton’s Rules of Etiquette. I'm just about to revert to my saved edition. I would appreciate it if you took whatever action you feel appropriate. Thanks. Iansisle 20:55, 27 Oct 2004 (GMT)

Nicely handled, Goober. Frisbeeteria Θtalk
Quite agreed. Many thanks! Iansisle 21:08, 27 Oct 2004 (GMT)

NSwiki as ersatz homepage

Goob, you might want to add your two cents to User talk: → Fris Θtalk 16:16, 5 Nov 2004 (GMT)

Hey Goob, your host is REALLY slow.

I suggest you switch to my host. Their servers are very powerful, and their network speed is pwn, plain and simple.

Here's living proof of their speed. Open my site, watch how fast it downloads.

This isn't a sales pitch. I'm serious. Your host blows.

My flag is better than your flag!

Very Funny goober to intervene like that. me and rejis were having a personal debate about how our nations do politics, war and how we basically run things. we weren't roleplaying.

Oh while i'm here president martin, your flag is basically a blue area with a blackdot and what resembles co-ordinate geometry within it. what does this resemble? not a lot except a lot of questions about what it means.

Now pay attention to what the Quebradan flag represents. Capitalism, Consumerism and sheer economic, military and diplomatic superpower. also the flag has 13 stars represent the 13 regions (In quebrada, states are called 'Regions') and the light blue is the nation's colours.

Lovely flag if i don't say so myself. what do you think pres. goobergunch?

Regards, Quebrada.
