SpotlightEdit

Should we once apply for spotlight? 77.248.45.236 09:48, December 29, 2011 (UTC)

Pierlot, maybe you should check. MediaWiki:Community-corner has not even been edited once, so no the spotlight would fail. --Jt 16:02, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
Should we make it a news thingy, or a featured article box? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 16:32, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
News makes more sense. --Jt 17:25, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
Once we get a few more users, maybe we could hold elections. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 17:42, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
Not with user controlled characters. {{SUBST:User:Pierlot/HT}} 15:46, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Featured Article Edit

Which Featured Article should we feature on the home page, first?

And any other suggestions for or concerning featured articles? Nar Echocho 17:24, May 24, 2012 (UTC)

Of those listed, perhaps the Ambroos I page. There is already a basis for the FA summary in the first paragraph that can be expanded. What would you think we should use? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 18:03, May 24, 2012 (UTC)

Sure, Ambroos I is a fine choice. Nar Echocho 16:01, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

YearsEdit

Can I edit year pages! I will focus me on that project! Wabba The I 15:48, July 1, 2012

That would be a huge task to do, as recorded history stretches back to 535 AD. That is nearly 1500 years and it would become a mess. Alternately there is the Timeline of Brunanter History which has events for the years. I would appreciate if you could help out with that, since there are lots of events to be filled in. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 16:38, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

Whatever you decide to do, Wabba, I'm sure you'll be very diligent at it :). Nar Echocho 16:52, June 1, 2012 (UTC)
Horton11, you have right! Echocho, look on Wikistad! That is one big mess! Wabba The I 09:58, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry to say it is a mess, Wabba, and because I could do very little about it (no buro rights or anything like that), I've abandoned it. Still, I had a great time on the wiki and am proud of some of the things we did there. I still enjoy 'going back' from time to time, who knows, maybe one day it 'll be brought back to life properly. Nar Echocho 10:15, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Why not have pages for each century until, suppose, 1800, and just decade pages until perhaps 1910. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 15:00, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Interwiki Mäöres (landj.wikia.com) Edit

I requested opening an interwiki between Mäöres and Brunant:

«On nation.wikia.com there is an interwiki car: leading to carrington.wikia.com. Could this interwiki be creating on landj.wikia.com as well? And vice versa, so that li: on carrington.wikia.com links to landj.wikia.com?»

--OuWTBsjrief-mich 16:23, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

That would be good. But we should also try and establish more links between the two nations. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 16:29, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Sure, that's why we need the interwiki and a new supranational wiki organization :) --OuWTBsjrief-mich 16:53, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps if we had university/cultural exchanges, town twinning, etc. We could also bring companies over, like the Mertegos could be joined with Maxi and other Mäöreser companies could come here. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me
Sure. It would be especially nice if a Brunanter University could create a department in Mäöres as we don't really have a university :P --OuWTBsjrief-mich 17:11, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps the RUK can open a campus in Saenteim. You'll have to help me on the Limburgish, though. And i'm sure that Mäöres can make use of Maxi, especially with the combined fuel/bank services. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 17:18, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
No problem, I tend to think most English natives don't speak Limburgish, so I quite expected that :P
I don't know whether the bank service is possible with current regulations, but the fuel service is very welcome, as we don't have any fuel suppliers :P I'm sure we can "bend the law" to a certain degree that Maxi can open banks in Mäöres. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 17:21, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
The bank isn't really necessary, but perhaps an international points card, that will allow Lovian, Brunanter and Mäöreser Maxi shoppers to use in all 3 countries. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 17:32, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Great ideas, guys! And yeah, I find it harder to 'work' with Mäöres as well, simply because of the language. But perhaps I could have a movie or something filmed there(?). Is it open to business like that? Nar Echocho 19:48, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yeas, Limburgisch is too hard to learn, in my opinion. Also, do you think a bilingual wiki could work? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 19:54, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
You mean having articles in both English and Dutch, or choosing one of those when writing an article? Nar Echocho 19:59, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
I was thinking more like a mirroring of edits from one langage to another. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 20:05, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
@Echocho: I don't really get what kind of film you mean, but Mäöres is indeed open to businesses from other nations :)
@Horton: Bilingual wikis don't work, we've tried it in the past. It means everything has to be written twice and eventually one part of the community gives up because they feel mistreated. See: Libertas. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 16:38, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
Is there no system to automatically translate pages? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 16:46, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
A fiction film, Oos, something co-produced with one of 'our' studios, Europa, Liberal Arts or Studio 5. Horton, writing everything twice takes up a lot of energy and time that could be used on other articles. But perhaps we could allow users who want to, to write articles in Dutch? Without any rules about having to translate it as well (or maybe just a one or two lines at the top of the page, a summary)? That way we might attract users who don't feel confident enough in English and would otherwise use Libertas? Nar Echocho 17:00, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps. Someone like Wabba might benefit from this. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 17:20, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
@Echocho: Ow :P Yes, that's possible. If you have anything "in stock", you can share it :) --OuWTBsjrief-mich 20:12, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
@Horton: An automatical translator for Limburgish does not exist. Dutch to English and vice versa sucks :P --OuWTBsjrief-mich 20:12, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
@general: If you don't translate something, it gets messy. You should have one language in which everything is written. Imagine having a Dutch page that says "vijftien mensen stierven door de wervelwind op 3 mei" and another page saying "there have never been any tornadoes in the country". It's risky and to be honest, I doubt it is going to add any value. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 20:12, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, I don't like to admit it, but good point, Oos :d. Unless... you have someone bilingual, like me, moderating to prevent stuff like that, just 'typing' out loud. Nar Echocho 20:33, June 14, 2012 (UTC)
Imagine you become inactive and nobody can replace you :P What you are doing, in fact, is translating the articles to English anyway (albeit summarized or only in your head) :P --OuWTBsjrief-mich 20:53, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

Interwiki sv.wikination Edit

I propose to create an interwiki to and from Inselöarna. I don't think there are any objections? --OuWTBsjrief-mich 08:05, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

None whatsoever. But we should have one withg Lovia too. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 13:37, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

That can be done as well. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 14:57, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
Great. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 16:01, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
I've just sent the request, so hopefully everything's set within a week time :) --OuWTBsjrief-mich 16:31, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good. And don't forget the interwikis with Mäöres. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 23:29, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

There's a wiki at http://sv.nation.wikia.com/ too, though, and that isn't Inseloarna. Is that affiliated with the UWN wikis (Lovia, Brunant, Inseloarna, Maores etc.)? 77topaz (talk) 02:47, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

No, it was a vague idea of mine, but it never got active. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 12:06, August 26, 2012 (UTC)
It seems like now everyone is making a wikination, but very few actually succeed. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 12:13, August 26, 2012 (UTC)
Well, if you're working on a wiki all alone, in most cases, you'll get bored pretty soon :P --OuWTBsjrief-mich 14:52, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

I don't like the URL of Insel Islands. Why not ask Wikia for a move to inselöarna.wikia.com? Or perhaps inseloarna.wikia.com? I'll consult 4kant,6 about that. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 13:38, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

TM, ö is not possible in url.wikia.com I think. I've never seen it. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 19:15, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
Just checked it on [1]: The name cannot contain special characters (like $ or @) and must be a single lower-case word without spaces. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 19:16, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
Anyway, you can use sv:test now, which is even shorter. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 19:16, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
Mmm.. Doesn't seem to work, perhaps the server is working slow again. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 19:17, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
Sometimes wikia can get really slow. Maybe b tomorrow it should be fixed. Also, maybe we should revive a few of the better wikinations. There are so many around but after a while people just give up on them. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 20:13, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
I think our community is too small. We should stay fixed to the few active wikis right now. Otherwise we risk ending up with even more inactive wikis :( --OuWTBsjrief-mich 16:25, September 1, 2012 (UTC)
You're right. I think with closer cooperation from the IWO we should be able to have better interwiki links. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 16:54, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

2012 Election Plan Edit

In Brunant, we are having elections in 2012, and not again until 2016. So we should make these very good. According to my proposed Constitution, this is how they might work:

As far as I know, we are going to have separate elections for the House, Senate, and Presidency. For the House elections, according to the Constitution, lists are proposed for each parish. The seats are divided into parishes. The amount of seats (out of 200) allocated to each parish can be found at Elections in Brunant. To simplify this, I think that we should do a national election, and then divide the elected representatives into each of the parish seats. For Senate and Gubernatorial elections, the Constitution says to use Alternative Vote to elect one for each parish. That might be able to be done that way, although it might be challenging to get it all done for twelve parishes, as we don't have many active users. Presidential elections also use Alternative Vote, so that should be easy enough. Just have each party post a candidate and we can have every voter make a preferential ballot. I'll do all the calculations. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 14:59, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Thoughts? TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 01:31, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

It seems good, but do you think it is possible to do such complex elections with few users here? What I was thinking (since PR elections are complicated) is to just do a fptp vote for president and senators. Then, the proportion of votes a party gets in the senate is translated to the house (users should have a nco like in Lovia). HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 12:14, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

However, Senators are per-parish. Maybe we could choose experienced users every year and make up the election? Also, it's not that hard to do an IRV vote. For example: Say there are seven candidates, a communist, a social democrat, a green, a centrist, a christian democrat, a libertarian, and a fascist. You order as many candidates as you want in a ballot.

For the best example, Yuri would write:

1. Communist
2. Social Democrat
3. Green

That's it. Note that not all seven candidates are ordered. The candidates are then ordered by number of votes. If a candidate has a majority of votes, they win. If not, elimination begins. Say that the communist had the least votes of all. The votes of that candidate are eliminated, and redistributed according to all the second choices of the voters, most of them to the social democrat. If there is no second choice, the ballot is exhausted. Eliminate, redistribute/exhausted, repeat until a candidate has a majority of votes or there are only two candidates remaining, in which case the candidate with the most votes wins. Might seem complicated, but all you have to do is post a ballot with as many candidates as you want in choice order. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 12:27, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Note that in the senate there may be more than 1 person in the same party running, so how would you account for that? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 13:00, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
Usually that does not happen, but if it does, they are given the same treatment, with vote redistribution, etc. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 13:25, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
So do you mean having separate elections for each of the parishes? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 14:14, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
We don't have enough people for that, so I was thinking of hand-picking them according to the House results. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 15:21, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
Isn't it better to have a Lovia-style election for the senate, where the top 12 candidates are given senate seats? That way thee could be more than 1 senator from a party and house seats are redistributed as in Lovia. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 15:26, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
Interesting idea, but I don't think that we will have enough candidates. Also, for the house elections: A list of candidates is posted by each party, and you pick the candidates off that list. Then a PR system is used to make the house. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 17:27, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

OPPOSITION Edit

  1. In the article about Brunant it is referred that 95% of the inhabitants are Christians. I believe that it is far too high; I suggest making it 80-85% to make more realistic.
  2. I think it's alittle stupid to have Brunant a member of EU, as the Euro coins connote

--George the Greek (talk) 13:11, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

The Religion section in the demographics page gives better data, so that 95% will need to be removed. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 14:54, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Remove the Euro. Britain is happy that it did not decide to use it. Happy65 16:55, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

The European Union is progress, albeit small, on ending nationalism and merging Earth into one nation state of cooperation. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 18:36, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

I'm more of a localist/regionalist myself. If returning to the Thaler secures our monetary and financial future more so than sticking with the Euro will, then I'm all for it. Internationalism shouldn't enter into the debate. Matt (talk) 21:58, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

TM's OppositionEdit

  • In character interactions and "characters" of users.
  • Formal voting in the Senate/house.
  • Interactive maps in settlements.
  • Ownership of pages. Pages should be communal.

I really want us to try a different, non-interactive approach. Where people work together out of character to make in character things without actually acting in character. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 18:36, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

I like the characters, because you can have fun and do anything that you like. And alsoin Lovia they use caracters. Granero (talk) 02:17, December 10, 2012 (UTC)

You can have even more fun and do anything you like when you aren't restricted by your characters. I know in Lovia they use characters, but we should try not having them here. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 23:12, December 10, 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps some people have charcters which are the same as their own IRL character :P --OuWTBsjrief-mich 04:23, December 10, 2012 (UTC)

Music Contest Edit

Horton had the idea of a Brunanter song contest. I was thinking of a music competition held in Koningstad (perhaps not every two years or something), from which new talents would evolve. What's your opinion??--George the Greek (talk) 18:14, December 15, 2012 (UTC)

SO would it be more like an American Idol or Britain's Got Talent thing? And would you want to make it into a show? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 18:30, December 15, 2012 (UTC)
Bad idea, I think! Sorry. Wabba The I (talk) 18:44, December 15, 2012 (UTC)

No, not a TV show. Please read these two articles: Live and Unsigned/Open Mic UK.--George the Greek (talk) 13:03, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

That's a good idea, but wouldn't TV help promote the contest more? Well if you don't want a full-blown show, you could do like a video for the best acts on the show, or have just someting shown online. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 17:08, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps only the final concert in Koningstadion.--George the Greek (talk) 00:02, December 17, 2012 (UTC)

a national parks idea Edit

I have an idea of a national part that we can do, all underwater. It can be called Shipwreck National Park and there can be sunken ships of the romans, arabians, medievals and from the World Wars. And there will be corals and lost of wildlives. Granero (talk) 03:01, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, good. Wabba The I (talk) 07:39, December 21, 2012 (UTC)
Yep. chat, wabba Happy65 07:40, December 21, 2012 (UTC)
That would be a great idea. And shipwreck has a w in there. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 14:31, December 21, 2012 (UTC)
You should go ahead with this. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 17:14, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
I can do it tomorow, tonight it's late. Granero (talk) 03:35, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

Redesigning the thaler Edit

Seeing as there is significant support to bring back the thaler, maybe we should think about redesigning it. There are several sites and projects focused on redesigning the national currency (Sweden just had one and there's also this: http://richardsmith.posterous.com/), so it would be nice if other could propose their own ideas for a new thaler. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 15:59, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

Also, specifications for the note will be "Brunants Centralbank" (Country and Bank name), denomination (number and written out in Dutch/English), date, serial no. and president's signature. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 18:53, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

My idea is going on a simple and modern design and using important modern figures (ie. the past 150 years) who have contrbuted to music, the arts, politics. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me16:13, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

AFC Awards Edit

It's time for us to start the selection of players and managers for the league awards, to be held in June 2013. The awards for best player, youth, keeper and manager will be determined by... (how should we go about doing this)? The "best performance" award will be determined through fan voting. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 15:52, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

Player of the yearEdit

This award is given out to the player with the best overall performance in the season. 10 players will be on the shortlist and there will be three finalists.

Best goalkeeperEdit

This award is given out to the goalkeeper with the best overall performance in the season. 5 players will be on the shortlist and there will be three finalists.

Young player of the yearEdit

This award is given out to the player with the best overall performance in the season. 5 players will be on the shortlist and there will be three finalists.

Best managerEdit

Unlike the player awards, this is given out for performances in both the league and cup. Five managers will be selected and the winner will be chosen for his leadership, skill and team performance.

Individual performanceEdit

This award is given out for the best individual performance by a player in a league or cup match.

Please do not vote until we have all the nominees!!!

The poll was created at 16:58 on January 8, 2013, and so far 5 people voted.

Comments?Edit

Voting for the best player, coach, keeper and youth will be done by voting from four media groups: The Daily Post, De Waarheid, Total Football and Salmon Brunant Post. The 26 teams (captains) will also vote. IRL we well need to divide these 30 votes between anyone interested in voting. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 16:34, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

PrisonEdit

I was thinking of a (high security) prison in northern Hogeberg Island, far enough from every settlement, as well as another prison (low security) in a town or city.--George the Greek (talk) 11:15, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

This would be a good idea, since none of the prisons we have now are of any major use (unless you want to send hardened criminals to Mermaid Island). And a prison somewhere in Central Parish would be much further away from settlements, perhaps even in the mountains. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 15:32, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
We could pretend a tiny island exists that is not on any map like mermaid island and use it for a prison. Happy65 16:36, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
I like your idea.--George the Greek (talk) 16:39, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
My idea was from what the americans did with Alcatraz Island. Happy65 16:41, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
We could make a small island in a harbor or bay like Roodstad. We could also put them in a prison-fortress of sorts in the Central Ranges

Dârtsekroeansstried 2013 Edit

Registrating for the Dârtsekroeansstried 2013 is now open. This international darts competition will be held in Mäöres. All wikinations may send in their best darters to compete in the Dârtsekroeansstried 2013. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 12:46, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

I remember somebody (Horton, I think) a couple weeks ago in chat who was talking about possible elections this year. Our last vote was in 2009, so if we stay on the four-year cycle we're due for another round. Are there formal plans in place for this, or was somebody just throwing around ideas?

Matt (talk) 21:25, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

Elections will take place this year but we need to find a good way to hold them. What I was thinking, we hold a vote among users (like in Lovia or similar) and then we get the percentage of each user's votes and divide it up to get the house seats; users can then divide up their seats between their party or parties. We can then use the proportion of house seats/party to give out seats in the senate. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 21:47, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

That sounds good. This needs to be scheduled well in advance so that everybody can be present and voting. We need to choose a random date(s) this spring/summer and stick to it, and hold the election on that date from here on out. Anybody have a good day in mind? Maybe a Brunanter holiday or something?

  • Maybe on Independence Day? Nice and symbolic.

Yes, you cannot believe it. It's time for the elections AGAIN. This time, I'm campaigning with GP. Why? Because you can get up of your seat, go to the ballot, and feel the freedom. The freedom you get when you don't look in your mailbox and see tax bills rising, when politicians aren't getting richer and the freedom of when politicians and businessman are NOT living in massive palaces whilst people are living on the streets. The GP makes sure you get low taxes, and you can live in peace and harmony.

ConstitutionEdit

Hey, if everyone could please read User:TimeMaster/Constitution and post their thoughts here, that would be good.

The plan for implementation is as follows (modified from a chat log): "The constitution of 1802 will be royalist and become a little more liberal in 1852. Then the stereotypical draconian king comes along and tries to make the country an absolute monarchy. This is followed by the liberal revolution, which rolled backed what the king did. The 1852 constitution is restored. The 1882 congress is elected to make a new constitution This resulted in the constitution of 1884, with the first elections for new president and congress late in the year. There is a shorter term of the president to make him serve the people more. This is followed by standard 4 year elections for president and variable elections for house and senate.

Worrying news from Lovia Edit

Ygo August Donia (User:The Master's Voice) is threatened to launch a military attack on Noble City with the aid of his "Brigade" of hunters, with the intent of launching a coup against King Dimitri I and taking the throne for himself, unless Dimitri abdicates before then, which is unlikely considering his OOC inactivity. How should we react to this? 77topaz (talk) 11:39, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

THB nothing, he does this for attention and to "mix things up". Nothing, or if something comes to it he will be killed and his army as well. Marcus/Michael Villanova 12:10, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

@Wabba- this should only be a last resort; we should not be the ones escalating the conflict.
@Topaz- Donia has given his support to Tagog: "In exchange for his support I'll support him. I will need as many people as possible to declare their support for my kingship. I shall send weapons and money, be the finance guy. Smuggle it in if I have to. It'll be to our mutual benefit." HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 18:38, April 29, 2013 (UTC)
I was referring to the absence of statements in response to Donia, not the statements by Donia. And Donia seems to be willing to support either side in the Tagog conflict, depending on which supports him more in Lovia. 77topaz (talk) 12:37, April 30, 2013 (UTC)
Oos seems to support him, and Donia seems to be set on supporting the regime. And it may be to our advantage. Distance yourself from him (as the opposition) and if he does stick with Tagog's government, in Lovia I'm sure pro-government people would further want to oppose Tagog's dictator.

Games Edit

Maybe Brunant could participate in the Games of the Small States of Europe.--George the Greek (talk) 12:49, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

First: Brunant is not as small as those countries (except Iceland maybe). If we will participate that will be unfair because we have good teams, professional athletes and those countries don't have it. Brunant already participate the IWO Games ... Wabba The I (talk) 17:52, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

I don't want to be offensive.. Edit

... but the 2013 IWO Games are a joke - pretty much like all of IWO... I'm actually a bit disappointed :( First of all, the planning was rather disastrous from the beginning, with countries being able to sign up for sports, but as that didn't work out well, countries were - sort of - randomly grouped in certain sports. Also the time schedule was planned badly (though I'm not sure we could've done that any better). Secondly, there is no attention from other wikicountries (arguably, not even from Brunant itself) for the games, mainly because of the chaotic way things go.

I think we should learn from this experience, but I'm not sure whether these current games should continue or be cancelled. I'm pretty sure we can all agree though that the next question is to be asked: Are interwikinational relations (incl. politics etc) possibly, as we've experienced so many failures before? --OuWTBsjrief-mich 09:12, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

Well it seems like Lovia is the only country not really interested in IWO links, really. With Libertas and other smaller countries we've been able to establish links, conferences etc, but it seems like Lovia hasn't done this. I proposed an economic conference a while back, and no response (check my notepad for for the trade conference bit). As for the games, there was some interest but no drive, especially from other countries. Perhaps the size and complexity of the tournament was too much. If we continue with IWO sports I suggest we divide it up into different tournaments/events, ie. athletics, football, basketball etc. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 13:12, August 24, 2013 (UTC)
Well, I'm more concerned about interest in the course of the Games. After the Games started, nobody really cared for them anymore.
Your idea of splitting it up might work. And in fact, has been used before: Dârtsekroeansstried 2013. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 14:42, August 24, 2013 (UTC)W
Well, there were/are numerous problems with the Games. Granero, who'd originally been appointed as organiser for several sports, seemingly disappeared. Wabba started several events but then suddenly abandoned everything claiming no-one cared about the Games. And we (me and Horton) had not been able to agree on a method to determine the results of the individual sports. I'd be prepared to "finish" or determine the results for several of the events, but I don't think I've actually been given permission to do so. 77topaz (talk) 22:30, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

Brunant in other languages Edit

I had always assumed that Brunant would be the universal name for the country in other languages, but then I saw that in the history under the Spanish the islands were known as "Barzona", and the name would have stayed in use for modern Spanish and derivatives of it would be used in other romance languages.

  • French: Barzone - Barçon, Barçonne
  • Spanish: Barzona- Barceño, Barceña

I put down a couple of ones I thought would make sense, but what names would Brunant have in other languages? HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 15:40, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

From the other wikinations, we can gather that the name "Brunant" would be used in Dutch, Swedish, Danish etc. 77topaz (talk) 22:52, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Barceño does make sense but also on Traspes there is Brunes but that's mroe similar to Brunant and not Barzona. Traspes (talk) 04:53, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

@ Topaz- That would be likely. I remember Lovia having some page or subpage for that. 

@ Traspes- There'd be some spelling of Brunant (and demonyms derived from it) in romance languages but they'd be more contemporary spelling. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 20:16, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

President? Edit

What would you guys think about getting rid of the position of president? I feel that it is not a necessary position, given that many of the duties can be performed by the PM/Monarch, and having two heads of state is not as effective. On a realistic level, paying and alloting funds for a person who has a limited political role would also be a factor. I've added a poll to get general opinions.

Do you agree with removing the post of president, for the above and/or other reasons?

1930s Edit

Looking through the history page it says there are conflicts between Maarten Dolmatoff and the leftists with the government, so I was thinking, why not simply expand that into a sort of political conflict?

Hamlets/small communities Edit

Maybe it's time we work on these in Brunant. Lovia's developed them well and I'm sure we should do the same here. They'd definitely be all small and often rural (see Demographics of Brunant, ss. urbanization for estimates as to how many would be in them. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me

As to the name, I was thinking of using one deriving from the Venetian period. They would've most definitely organized administration of areas.

This really is a good idea. But I have questions. Is all the population that is rural in localities?? Is the figures 2015 numbers or from before?? (you updated it?). And how many localities are going to exist?? Maybe, it should be more than what's in Lovia, but you think more than 83 is here is too much??? Traspes - Dianna Bartol LOGO POSITIVE BLOCK 23:50, March 26, 2015 (UTC)

I did calculations, 59,275 live in the rural areas, it's 5,37%. I think, maybe 50% of all of those people live in the localities, and the others just in the farms.Traspes - Dianna Bartol LOGO POSITIVE BLOCK 00:44, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

The figures have been updated, so those numbers would be correct. Not all the rural population would live in localities, so 50-60% would be good, depending on the parish. And the number will also depend on the overall population. Each locality would have less than 500 people in each. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 14:34, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Martensdorp might also be a locality? 77topaz (talk) 20:57, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

Maths for the number of localitiesEdit

These are the number of people who would live in a locality in each parish. This uses 50-60% of the rural population for most.

An appeal to advance Edit

Avanze logo

Brunanters, now is the time to stand up and demand a better job from your politicians, not only nationally but also locally. Those from the right of course do advocate for austerity, citing Greece, Ireland and Spain. But what is more worrying is that our so-called left wing is falling for and promoting that rhetoric.

Brunant is fine, they say. The economy is not receding as expected. Jobs are not at risk anymore. Then why is the retirement age being raised? Why are taxes increasing? Why are there talks of tightening the belt? Why are municipal governments, left and right, not spending what they need to help average citizens as well as those most in need of it?

If Brunant were fine, politicians would not take steps as if the country was headed down a cliff of economic issues. The only explanation here would be they secretly do know that the country is in a downward spiral, and in this case have no-one but themselves to blame for mismanagement.

The Social Democrats, Green Party and even the Socialist Left Party have moved from actually caring about voters and citizens to only caring about votes. Elections are coming up in the next months, so this is an appeal to vote against the same vote-seeking parties and to back local and alternative parties. The social security of Brunanters depends on standing up to the status quo and making it known you will not have your futures depleted at the hands of politicians.

Richard Bomgaars 22:24, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

I commend the Brunanter people for not leaving politics to the politicians, but standing up to the establishment and letting their voices be heard. What we need in these times is true democracy - for the citizens to find an alternative vision for their country, to rally round it, and to tell those in government "no more." I feel sure that those on the streets now, fighting for justice, are far closer to that vision than any political party, no matter how 'progressive' or ideologically correct. --Anna Maria Whithdonck-Malsky 22:38, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

The Socialist Left Party completely supports the anti-austerity, and we are hurt to hear that some do not trust us on that matter. If elected, we will stop austerity, and seek to make government work for the people again, not the other way around. We will always support the people's social security and right to have a good living. Vote SLP! TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 02:34, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

2) Pacific Trade - Joining the IWO will improve your Asia-Pacific Trade as we are a great trade route from Asia-Pacific to the Americas.
3) Resources - We have a vast supply of oil, gold and copper. We also plant bananas, pineapples and mangos, and we ship them off to other countries.
4) Relations with other Asian countries - Since we are a member of APEC, ASEAN and ACD, your country can benifit on making trade deals, starting new companies etc.
5) Economy - We are one of the richest countries, due to oil, gold and other sucessful companies like Air Phaluhm, PTV and the Kaliybatan Corporation, which owns buisnesses such as Pham-Su. FlyPhoueck, Themn, Tempest and Liberalty Bank.

Idea Edit

I have an idea for a Christmas movie/documentary, that focuses on the Christmas customs in Brunant. Would this be a good idea? Valandre (SDP) FictiveJ (discuss) 22:20, November 9, 2015 (UTC)

Yes. Traspes - Dianna Bartol LOGO POSITIVE BLOCK 00:48, November 10, 2015 (UTC)

I was thinking, it would centre around some Brunanter family which stays true to the Christmas customs. It would involve traditions like the nogado, buniol and a pesber. Valandre (SDP) FictiveJ (discuss) 02:28, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
It's a good plan. Maybe, you can do a Christmas with the Sarria Family. Traspes - Dianna Bartol LOGO POSITIVE BLOCK
Yes, maybe. It would be a good plan. Valandre (SDP) FictiveJ (discuss) 04:58, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
But, nogado nougat, buniol oliebollen and pesber nativity scenes aren't exactly unique to Brunant, though. :P 77topaz (talk) 09:45, November 10, 2015 (UTC)

Berrio Edit

I think we should decide on Brunant's tiny colony of Berrio. I made it just as a sort of side project, but I think that it could be something nice to have. Berrio is small, not very populous and won't make us big colonizers or anything like that. Do you guys have thoughts? Ideas/criticism? Flag proposals? If you guys support it, we can go through with improving and integrating Berrio in the wiki. There will be no need for a separate wiki, because it will surely end up inactive, and Berrio won't be big enough to merit its own site. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 17:56, November 16, 2015 (UTC)

I suppose we could continue to work on it, though I think the population should be at least doubled. ] Happy65 Talk Contributions 22:12, November 16, 2015 (UTC)

NO MORE CHINESE OCCUPATION. Respect our sovereignty.

Since 1900, the Chinese government has been hoarding Vietnam and Phaluhm islands. This caused wars between China, Vietnam and Phaluhm.

SAVE RHYEN ATILOKO!Edit

Rheyen Atiloko is a overseas Phaluhm worker currently on death row in Indonesia for drug smugling. She was duped on carrying a suitcase carying 2.5 kilograms of herorin in the suitcase. She was arrested in Bali and was put into death row in December 2013. Royna Nehgyen has opposed of these executions, calling it inhumane and request clemancy, but has been denied. If Indonesia goes ahead with the executions, diplomatic ties will sour and all Phaluhm overseas workers might be asked to return.

We must stand as citizens, Phaluhm people, as we must say NO to these executions. We are petitioning from all people to say NO to these executions.

Lancededcena Flag of Phaluhm Phoueck Flag of Ostrobia 16:37, February 3, 2016 (UTC)


I completely agree. Valandre (SDP) FictiveJ (discuss) 21:52, February 3, 2016 (UTC)
Is there proof that she was innocent, though? 77topaz (talk) 19:42, February 4, 2016 (UTC)
She met a recuritment agency in Wikas, they forwarded a individial called Ramos Malgansay who was a mentor for her. He told him that he knew a person in Bali, Indonesia in the construction industry. She told him that she was interested. In November 28th 2013, he gave her flight tickets and $500 USD. In December she arrived in Phaluhm Airport, and she passed the baggage into the luggage area. The luggage handler for the plane unlocked the luggage and snuck in 2.5 kilograms of heroin, due to outrage of strict job cutbacks. 
When she landed in Bali, she was told that there was something suspisous on her luggage. She was interviewed by two investigators. She agreed to look at her luggage and when they opened and when they took out items of clothing, they found a black plastic bag and inside was heroin. She did not respond and was dragged out from the airport to the womans prision.
During the ASEAN summit, Royna Nehgyen asked for clemancy but it was denied. The 2015 APEC summit was described as the last chance to save Rhyen Atiloko. Lancededcena Flag of Phaluhm Phoueck Flag of Ostrobia 19:58, February 4, 2016 (UTC)
Okay, but what evidence is there that it was the luggage handler who snuck in the heroin and not Atiloko? If there is evidence, someone (a lawyer, perhaps, or a diplomatic emissary) should present that evidence to the Indonesian court. 77topaz (talk) 20:41, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
There isn't enough evidence but she is recieving help from the Consulate General in Bali and the Embassy in Jakarta. The Indonesian government is ignoring all of the requests for clemancy and retrials. Her lawyer in Phaluhm Phoueck is also actively supporting her. Lancededcena Flag of Phaluhm Phoueck Flag of Ostrobia 20:56, February 5, 2016 (UTC)
Well, I suppose if there isn't enough evidence the Indonesian courts may not be convinced she is innocent. But her lawyer or other Phaluhm Phoueck officials should try and find as much evidence as possible, to prove that she is in fact innocent. 77topaz (talk) 21:28, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
In such cases it is very hard to get something done. Now, if said person were British or American there'd be much more to be done. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 15:42, February 13, 2016 (UTC)

NO!!! Niels20020 (talk) 15:36, June 29, 2016 (UTC)

It's obviously a reference to Brexit, but because the IWO is on such a smaller scale than the EU, I don't expect there would be a significant exit push within Brunant. 77topaz (talk) 10:56, June 30, 2016 (UTC)

It is. No, the exit push is just at its infancy, but its something we can definitely include into Brunant's history. I personally am on the pro side, but I have had issues with the lack of anything achieved from the IWO and the lack of significant betterment of links between the wikinations, which definitely could add/lead to the start of a leave campaign, or at the least arguments for leave. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 21:26, July 6, 2016 (UTC)


I just came to the realisation that we are a member of both the European Union and the International Wiki Organisation. This could prove somewhat problematic, as the EU has supremacy over our laws and the IWO's laws would be overruled by those in the EU. The International Wiki Organisation is very beneficial, and encourages co-operation between similar sized nations. It does not have a group of 28 members serving as the Commission, the only people who have the power to propose legislation, though encourages a fair and democratic IWO Parliament which as the nation with the most seats allows us to spread our influence throughout the organisation. Instead of ridiculous regulations restricting our agricultural and fishing industries, it has an array of great iniatives including the Historic Towns Association and was the trendsetter for an airport alliance between wikinations, the Eagle Alliance which has since become the much-improved Flite Group, headquartered here in Brunant. The IWO could strengthen us but the EU is limiting us. We need to consider triggering Article 50 NOW. It's one or the other. EU OUT, IWO IN. Happy65 (Talk) (Contribs) 15:01, July 7, 2016 (UTC)

IWO Council elections Edit

Alright people, it's time to start working towards the IWO Council elections. I think a common forum for the elections in Lovia might just be the easiest/more organized idea, but elections here could work as well. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 14:44, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Municipal and government elections?Edit

Considering Lovia will hold elections and is refreshing the political sphere, you think we should do the same here. We don't have nearly the same user base as to hold user elections, but thoughts on perhaps roleplaying one with the ones who are? I see that as Topaz, Happy, Wabba and me, and hopefully more interested users. This would help create a more realistic composition as opposed to some of the ones in 2015 where there were no rightist candidates.

We have 7 elections from 2016 to do, and five are to be held this year. Plus, 2017 is government election year. Still, if we have enough users wanting an in-character election we can still do one. HORTON11: Email iconFollow me 21:22, February 23, 2017 (UTC)

Copying the bit from my talk page: "With so few active users, it's probably difficult to hold elections. What would your plan be - to use the same methods as we used for the previous municipal and government elections or different ones?"

However, now that I see your more elaborate post here, I think with "roleplaying" you mean you want to have the elections be entirely in-character? 77topaz (talk) 21:37, February 23, 2017 (UTC)
