Damn boi, that's what I call a productive debut! Very nice! Thank both of you, @Rihan and @Limonaia! 👍 One thing I'd suggest would be to add a sum row to the bottom of the population chart for the total global population.

Absolutely. I'll look into the coding to add that feature to the respective page.

Another page or two was made after this but I'll share those in a follow-up post.

As brought up in the chat the other night, we have some posts that have 'Eurth' in their title, and others that have 'Europa.' Given that the world is 'Eurth,' we might want to set up redirects for the pages that don't have Eurth in their title and going forward all 'general' pages have 'Eurth' as part of their titles.

I've added a World Population line with the sum of all available population at the bottom of the population page.

Here are some of the other pages I mentioned in the previous post that got made after I made this initial posting of this thread:

https://iiwiki.us/wiki/List_of_cities_in_Europa_by_population (the threshold for inclusion on this list: 1M+ inhabitants or if a country doesn't have such sized cities, then their capital.)

https://iiwiki.us/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_in_Europa

https://iiwiki.us/wiki/List_of_Companies_by_Industry_in_Europa (credit to @Andune for making this page).

I'll just say it here again: any more 'general' pages will be labeled with 'Eurth' and not ' Europa.' I'll make sure I have set up the appropriate redirects for those that are not in that fashion.

Great work here, @Rihan, truly.

A suggestion regarding the cities by population page -- should we instead of just having "population", have separate boxes for city proper, metro area, and urban area? Like here? We could replace the two "rank" categories if necessary (since I don't think the number is as important as the data).

I'm also wondering if the cutoff should be drawn larger. I know we've some larger nations -- those could have dozens of cities with at least 250,000. The UK has over 30 (and that's based on city proper, not metro area). The actual wikipedia list requires 1 million for the city proper. I think it'd make more sense to draw the line somewhere up there, to make things a little easier on those with larger nations (and to keep the list from getting TOO long).

Thanks for the suggestions and I've gone ahead and made those recommended changes 👍

It's possible to set up our spreadsheet with easy Wiki formatting. That way you won't always have to redo the table, and can just copypaste whatever information is required.

That would be helpful, especially as the number of 'general' pages will inevitably grow beyond the set I've put together to-date.

Hi everyone, another evening, another wiki page:

UENA Football, especially as we are now far beyond the competition: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/UENA_Football_(Eurth): I have gone ahead and gleen through both the World Cup and Nations competition threads to generate the list. Feel free to add yourselves. I have also provided each team with a general link for their individual page (you'll have to publish those pages yourself). The association's list is generically arranged on rough geography.

If you make your own football team pages, let me know and I can walk through the infobox as it wasn't so simple to begin.

And on the non-creating side for this evening: the Europa category on the now-read only NSWiki:

Keep pwning along, Rihan.

 

We should really organize the calling codes, perhaps by continent. I had mine as 200 something on the assumption that Europa was the single/double digits, Argis the 100s, and then Alharu the 200s.

Fair point. I am sure we can add this to the burgeoning international-related topics we have to address.

So long as I can get the punny +69 code, it's all good.

No problem at all - it's all yours. I'll make a note of it so I add it the next time I edit the page. Onwards to plan the next round of work.

Another day, more wiki updates:

@Cristina, @Aluxia, and @Girkmand: I saw that your factbooks were either on NationStates or here on the forum so I took the liberty of copying word for word what you had put together and created your nation pages: http://iiwiki.com/wiki/Cristinahttp://iiwiki.com/wiki/Girkmand, and http://iiwiki.com/wiki/Aluxia.

We talked about calling codes in the past on Discord and I've put together a page for such numbers here: http://iiwiki.com/wiki/List_of_Calling_Codes_on_Eurth (all numbers there are those found in factbooks either on NS or already within iiWiki (the only conflict was the code for Mantella was the same as Sunset Sea Islands so I gave SSI the next number up just so there was an entry).
 

 

 

That's great, Rihan. Thanks.

@Rihan, as a suggestion since we have room -- what if we also included a column specifying the length of telephone numbers (e.g.: 9 in the US), and one for the structure in which those numbers are written down (e.g.: XXX-XXX-XXXX in the US)? Just a thought. Or perhaps a separate page for that?

We should also look at a separate page listing emergency numbers (e.g.: 911 in the US).

Good job, you guys!

Since there is no geographical distinction between the Kingdom of Cristina and City of Cristina, the population and area of the city is the total population and area of the kingdom.

I could certainly add that column to the table. I would keep the emergency numbers in the same table, just make them a specific column. Gallambria and I might have a better long-term solution in terms of making it easier to assign codes.

No problem at all. I still have to move over the pictures for both you and Girkmand but I can do that once I make sure that we have all the text of nations who are here and active have their pages on the wiki.

I have had a chance to look at the wiki and I am happy to say that I look forward to working with you @Rihan to put my page together once I've gotten my factbook in order.

    • Howdy, folks. Obviously, war's been declared. We'll be outlining what this means for the RP below. Since last we made progress on this RP as a concept, there's been some changes to it. Most notably:   1. The absence of Derthalen as a player character 2. The placing of Rhodellia 3. The war goals of the coalition Firstly, I speak for the group when I say that, in the absence of Derthalen, we'd like to ask @Iverica, if willing, to take on the role of OPFOR in ROTW. Secondly, I also speak for all members of the coalition when I ask that the military participation of the Kingdom of @Rhodellia be heavily limited. Third, and lastly, we've developed a new plan thusly:   1. Securing air and naval superiority in the Dolch and over Derthalen's coastline 2. Mounting an amphibious landing on the southern shores of Derthalen 3. Overland, attack towards Heinrichstadt and capture the capital with all speed. 4. Respond to developing counterattacks as needed (also applies to previous 4) 5. Obtain unconditional surrender, or nearest equivalent 6. Divide and occupy the country 7. Formally declare the Alliance for Mutual Security 8. (Long term) Establish a constitutional republic in Derthalen under AFMS/UEL supervision.   We're happy to hear feedback on this plan from the RP Moderators and adjust it as needed. Thanks, y'all.
    • Brennan sulked up to the door of his flat, tired after his long day at work. It had been a miserable day but at least he knew he could sit with his family and relax. He opened the door and instead of seeing his wife and children milling about this house as usual he all of them glued to the television. His wife a, look of concern on her face quickly waved her husband over gesturing towards the screen. "Sit quickly, the King, he's says he's got a big announcement. I dunno what it could be right now." Just as Brennan sat on his couch the SBC banner flared onto the television declaring breaking news cutting straight to King Aidan, standing solemnly at a podium in front of the Royal Palace. "Today is a day that none of us should celebrate, but instead understand as a nation as our duty. For decades, the nation of Derthalen has not only threatened our borders but has threatened the freedom, lives, and security of the countless millions of people who pass through the Dolch Sea every year. Weeks ago, a cruise liner carrying almost a thousand souls was setting sail for Seylos, full of people who expected nothing more than a good holiday. Instead, in the midst of a piracy crisis, Derthalen seized the ship and the people it carried in the name of slavery. On board were not only hundred of people from the Duchy of Limonaia, but almost a hundred souls from Seylos. That such horrors could be inflicted on others, and especially our own citizens is beyond reproach. Through these past weeks, the Royal Government has been in contact with out counterparts in Limonaia and have reached out to our steadfast allies in Fulgistan to begin an action to end such a despotic threat to our way of life. During this time the people of Sayf, also invested in the safety and security of the Dolch Sea have reached out to defend those who would make such a journey. Enough is enough. I have convened with my own personal counsel, and have sought the support of the House of Governors in this decision. With overwhelming support, this Government has decided without hesitation to declare formal war against Derthalen, and those that would support her in her crimes. As of now forces from our allied nations have already begun arriving on our island, and the Royal Navy has begun to conduct a series of security operations around Seylos to ensure that our great nation will be safe from harm. The time for diplomacy has come to an end, and it is with this that we will test our force of arms against those who wish so many harm. I have no doubt that our military with the help and frienship of other such like minded states will bring victory against our enemies. Against the world's enemies. Godspeed to us all." Brennan sat back in his couch staring at the screen, mouth slightly ajar in disbelief but he could help but utter, "Well f*ck."

    • For the past few weeks, a large collection of unremarkable fields to the west of Kirkwall had been the subject of an enormous amount activity. Of course it wasn't until recently that the real construction and movement of material had begun. The Seylosian military had began hastily setting up large amounts of tents, fashioning supply depots as well as clearing and flattening areas for air strips. The local population of Kirkwall had been excited about this development, though many wondered why there was such a sudden rush of construction when they had barely heard of such of move in the past. For awhile the Royal military had been in negotiations to purchase those tracks of lands outside the city, but suddenly to the seller's glee, they were willing to pay the price already on the table. As for the rest of Kiirkwall, they only saw it as a good thing. Some small military base near the city only meant some good business, and most of the time Seylosian soldiers never caused any issues, at least not more than any normal person. What the people of Kirkwall didn't know was this base was going to become center stage in a conflict long brewing. Brigadier Adrian Hudson had just arrived, dropped off by helicopter that had come from Dunblane on the mainland. He had spent twenty years in the Royal Army Logistics Corp and he knew this was his biggest challenge yet. The orders were somewhat vague, but he did know one thing: tens of thousands of new people would be coming to the island along with all their supplies and equipment and it was up to him to make sens of this chaos. Behind him, the colonel waved at the helicopter, with it taking flight again to grab more people and supplies from Dunblane. He was greeted by a middle aged soldier who saluted immediately upon getting close to the Brigadier, "Warrant Officer Fitzroy sir, the base is ready for your command." Hudson stiffly saluted back and motioned towards Fitzroy to follow him, "Brief me as we go, we haven't a lot of time to get this place in shape." Fitzroy nodded taking his place next to the Brigadier, keeping up with his fast pace as they wound their way through tents and soldiers hurriedly moving about. "We've outlined the main area of the base sir, with three similar base sites within a few miles of this location. The government has arranged for several civilian contractors in Kirkwall to assist in constructing more permanent buildings, Major Perce has been in charge of civilian relations in regards to construction efforts. The Corps of Engineers has focused most of its efforts in creating suitable landing fields for various aircraft. At the moment at least we can carry a wing or two of Harriers. We've managed to setup a small amount of prefab buildings towards the center of camp which is where most of the logistics command staff are located at the moment. We have several dozen barracks structures under construction right now, though at the moment tents are all we have." Hudson nodded, it was a hell of a project. No doubt expensive as well, but he had been doing this sort of work his entire Army career and he very well intended have this place running smoothly as soon as possible, though he was sure there wouldn't be many happy people. "Also sir there are several officers who want a meeting with you to discuss logistics. Admiral Forrest wants to have someone be a liaison with the Kirkwall city council in order to use their port infrastructure. Lieutenant General Harley also wants a meeting to discuss division supply-" "Yes I understand, just take me to the center of the base Mr. Fitzroy. We can get these details more sorted in some sort of privacy."
