Last Round: Netherlands
OK, im sorry, but even though your a mod the Netherlands cant vassalize Spain, you can take parts of them yes and establsih a Basque Republic satelite state though, i think that would be fairly plausible. DS|Fear the Mutated Dean Sims Bomb, Fear It 16:10, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
Greetings. Recently, you have been uploading several flags for your page War of Iranian Aggression (Axis vs Allies: The Last Round Map Game); several of which were duplicates of flags already uploaded to this site (the most recent being a flag of Iraq). All flags uploaded from Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons all have the same titles on this site, making it easy to find here. Please keep this in mind for the future. Thank you. --NuclearVacuum (Talk) 00:58, March 21, 2013 (UTC)
Re: Night of the Living Alternate History
Let me know that you saw what i posted in LAL... A solution for Sul (South Brazil) should be reached by the end of the next turn, also read the India Operation comment i made. Thanks man! G greg e (talk) 01:30, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
When Northern California posted, they somehow deleated my turn. hopefully you can recouver my turn. Also Sul Peace Conference has begun discussion in the LAL and is expected to go smoothly. Sul made a LAL approved proposal to Brazil. G greg e (talk) 01:42, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
Hey, it is New Romania, Aternix (talk) 02:16, June 25, 2013 (UTC) can I please have my map and country as a secondary country on the template. I have the link and country flag on the main page under nations. Thanx.
What you did there was spamming. You should not do that as it is against wiki rules. Next time please refrain from doing so, otherwise the mods might decide to ban you for one day. My intention is not to scare you away just to tell you right from wrong. Imp (Say Hi?!) 18:34, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry I had no idea that was spamming. I was simply trying to get people to sign up for my map game. When someone is passionate about what they do they tend to go to great lengths to support their idea, and I meant no harm or malicous intentions. I first got the idea anyway from all the messages I have gotten to join other map games. Anyway, sorry for any harm I caused, and hopefully this doesn't take away from the integrity of the map game. Thanks. Mscoree (talk) 22:56, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
I'm assuming that the edits I made on everyone's talk page was discounted, but now my total edit count on my profile and my talk page are different. Anyone know how to fix this? Mscoree (talk) 00:38, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
Could not help but notice the number of people you spammed about your game. That is against the rules of this wiki.
Please refrain from doing such a thing again.
All nations currently start at level one. Level one represents technology as it was by the year 1970. Newer nations and rebel factions also start at level one, since their lack of organization/skill is accounted for elsewhere. Mscoree (talk) 19:07, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for offering me to play Your map game, but I'm off with that! You made me feel a complete idiot with that map game! Remove me from the nations list! Aaaand Goodbye! --Agent001 20:56, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
I will remove you from the list if leaving is truly your intention. Know that I did not mean to cause any harm by inviting you, and that I sincerely wanted you to join the map game. Best Wishes, Mscoree (talk) 21:00, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland
I think we need to add the Republic of Ireland to the game, and change the current Ireland in game into Northern Ireland as i believe there has been some kind of mix up between the two. Hailstormer (talk) 14:49, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
England/London/City of London
Just a quick question. If London does not agree to my demand, and i have to launch the nuclear strike i am threatening, i assume that eliminates them and their nation from the game? Hailstormer (talk) 17:39, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
I strongly advise not nuking anything. The consequence of the nuclear detonation would be too great and it could start a world war. The USSR would detect the nuke being launched and bam, game over for everyone. Map game ends. Mscoree (talk) 17:44, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
I really don't want to have to nuke anything, that is why i am hoping London will agree to what i am asking. But out of curiousity, it would eliminate the nation right? Hailstormer (talk) 17:50, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Take a look at the big picture. You're England. Focus on uniting/fixing your country and ending war with Scotland, not getting hung up on a small survival community in London. Unite England and London will join you. You don't have to threaten to nuke your own people and anger them further. Mscoree (talk) 17:55, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
That is what i'm worried about, i don't think they are going to be a small survival community for long. In one turn they refurbished a battleship and started to search around Southern England for survivors. I will agree not to nuke him. Hailstormer (talk) 18:01, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Hailstormer just attacked without using the algorithim, and did things that are inpossible, like breaching a reinforced concrete tunnel with depth charge, which is impossible. And he decided where I had placed my resources to suit him. Local Mafia Boss (talk) 15:48, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
I just defended my territory, wheni sent a ship somewhere, he (hailstormer) destroyed it with out even trying to work out what it was doing, then changed facts to suit him, and randomly attacked me. can you stop him, and then i will withdraw my nuke. Local Mafia Boss (talk) 16:16, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
Here are the flags for Northern Ireland and London:
Thanks, these are great. I will add these to the nations list. As for the NPC's, if the diplomacy response is logical they will accept, if it is a request to a neutral nation I'll use random.org to decide. Mscoree (talk) 20:23, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Commonwealth of australia and new zealand
Can you add the nation under the flag to the left? Nation page: Commonwealth of Australia and New Zealand (NotLAH)
Can you add my nation, too? Page: Free Republic of Alaska (NotLAH)
Yes - all articles for your game need to have "(Night of the Living Alternate History Map Game)" on them. It actually violates our naming rules to have them as you've been doing them. Figured you were smart enough to either get the hint or ask about it - glad to know I was right, lol. Lordganon (talk) 11:38, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
To add, since I've now seen the other post - the guy is banned now.
For the future.... you only need leave a note in one spot and I'll find it. For that matter, when I go through the list of changes - I go through the whole thing each day - I pretty much always see such things, so you really don't need to post anywhere about it, truth be told.
...And how is that relevant?
For the record, btw, it is actually considered rude to respond on your own talk page to others.
United Kingdom of England, Wales and Northern Ireland
Since i have reorganised the remnents of the United Kingdom into the above state i assume i cross off England, Wales and Northern Ireland on the nations bit of the page as they are no longer existing states? Thanks for the help deliberating the other day btw. Hailstormer (talk) 19:45, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Although you've basically secured England, I'd say you'll probably need to take back Wales, and especially Northern Ireland, before you can officially unite. Mscoree (talk) 19:54, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
I thought they had stayed with the United Kingdom? Reading the pre-apocalypse timeline i can only find Scotland leaving the union? So i thought since they had stayed in the union i could just diplomatically reform it? Hailstormer (talk) 19:58, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for any confusion, but some nations are missing from the timeline since they were added afterword, or in this case, they didn't officially declare independence, but rather fell into anarchy. In a turn or two you can reestablish rule in Wales. Northern Ireland will be harder considering its geographic situation and its zombie infestation. Even if you choose to not take back these territories, you can still claim to own them, and have them in your name, but you will have no administrative power there. Mscoree (talk) 20:07, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
Oh ok fair enough. Ok well in my last turn i started providing aid and troops to major Welsh and Northern Irish cities, so this turn i will reclaim complete administrative control over Wales, and in the next two turns i will do the same for Northern Ireland. BTW i put an offer in my last post for Brittany to join the union, could you use random.org to work out if they would join please? Thanks in advance. Hailstormer (talk) 20:27, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
Don't worry about it i did it myself, got 92 on the random number generator so i assume that is a really positive response. I have accepted the proposal as Brittanny, and was wondering if you could update the map so Brittanny is now the same colour as the United Kingdom (dark red)? Also could you change the flag of the United Kingdom in the nations list to the flag below please, every time i do it it messes up the formatting. Thanks in advance. Hailstormer (talk) 17:46, April 1, 2013 (UTC)
Hey! In Night of the Living Map Game, I am editor for The Confederate States of Halifax. I was wondering if you would add me to nations template, and if I could be reconized on the map? Thanks Dustin2557 (talk) 03:34, April 3, 2013 (UTC)
Hey could you please change the flag for Brittanny next to Royal France to this flag please:
Also could you get somebody to update the map so that the french administrative regions of Lower Normandy, Pay-de-la-Loire, Poitou-Charentes and Centre are now under the control of the UK and part of Royal France (Brittanny on current map).
A map as of April 2013 would be appreciated. Otherwise the nation and the idea look pretty good. Sorry this review is really short. I'm kinda short on time with uni and work. I will be a lot more active with the TL in June and July. Scandinator (talk) 16:40, April 6, 2013 (UTC)
Joing Map game
I am intersted in joinging your map game Night of the Living Alternate History as Argentina/the Falklands or maybe a different country. But this would be my first map game. Could you possibly give me some tips and such to joining... You said we could create a backstory, well i was wondering if I could do one that resulted in the merger of the Falklands and what is habitable of Arginitina.
Thanks for your reply, I plan on taking Argentina and the Falklands. I was wondering how i can set up a page for my country under the name Repulica Argentina. I may give it an attempt on my own. Thanks again!G greg e (talk) 14:43, April 10, 2013 (UTC)
Here you go: Repulica Argentina. I reccomend copying the top part of some else's nation, like this one: United States, in source, and just changing the appropriate information. Mscoree (talk) 14:46, April 10, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! I can't really tell by looking at the map , but is all of Argentina habitable... and what might you peg their population at? And what do you think the best way of talking to people in game, ie diplomacy? G greg e (talk) 14:53, April 10, 2013 (UTC)
You can expand slowly into zombie territory every so often. To expand into a country through conquest you need an algorithm. If you want to make an agreement with an NPC nation, post it and a moderator will accept with random.org, or something similar. Mscoree (talk) 20:31, April 10, 2013 (UTC)
Hello, as Argentina is facing two threats, communism and zombies (however, zombies have appeared to drive out/killed all the communits becasue they originated in the Northern zones of Argentina), some still reside in the Clear and Lightly Infected parts of the Andeas Mountains and Chile. I am asking for help, assitance, or resources to drive communism out of Argentina and Chile. .In return Argentina can assist with joing research (in OTL Argentina was a education, medical and scientific research machine at the time, on par with all of western Europe), including, but not limited to the Antartic bases we own. G greg e (talk) 23:50, April 10, 2013 (UTC)
I presume i will get my answer on my proposed United Republics of ... later? Could you read both my Republica Argentina page as well as my proposal page! Thanks G greg e (talk) 02:10, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
Since Brazil rejected the idea (as Argentina government thought), did that mean Democratic Chile accepts and no response from Uruguay yet? G greg e (talk) 20:09, April 11, 2013 (UTC) I also asked to buy Bouvet Island from Norway G greg e (talk) 20:23, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, may i post under both under the names of Republica Argentina and Las Republicas Unidas de la Argentina et Chile ( The United Republics of Argentina and Chile)? and would you advise against creating a page for the United Republics untill a response from Uruguay is received? G greg e (talk) 23:36, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry if i was unclear, It is a United Republic Similar to the UK... Each nation has soverienty, yet it represented as one..., thus Chile is still a nation and capabable of its own actions. However, if you wish I can take over both simialr to what the guy who runs the UK has done with Wales, N. Ireland, and England, that would actually be prefered.Anyway I am hoping for a positive response from Uruguay. On a side note: In OTL during the early 1970s Chile was overrun by communism. I have aligned with the Democratic government and will be pushing the communism out of Chile, thanks to both the United States and Florida's assistance. G greg e (talk) 00:27, April 12, 2013 (UTC)
Due to more recent communist risings in Northern Argentina and Chile, would you be willing to send soldiers and aid to support a troop surge in the Austrial Summer (this turn), with this troop surge and UR military forces we should be able to eliminate communism in Chile and the Andes (in OTL roughly 6,000 communist guarillas had to be killed to end the war). The goal is make a quick and brief inserction to eliminate infected and communism in the UR. As a democratic state your support would be appriciated Will I need an algothrim for this result? G greg e (talk) 05:27, April 13, 2013 (UTC)
Greetings, USA would you be willing to send a delegate to a summit in 1978 as well as accept a provisional invitation to the 1978 World Cup to be held in the UR? Also (Mod q here) when will i have conducted enough research to post a breakthrough? G greg e (talk) 23:04, April 14, 2013 (UTC)
Hello, after taking a break to cool off from my thoughts concerning NotLAH, at this current point I am really concerned about the metagaming thing, as i do not want to risk my repuation or chance to use this sight, but also, I am concerned about the lack of following and even reading your rules in this game, which i posted earlier, while this has improved it is still a concern. And last, thier appears to be an Anti-Argentinian semitism from Chile, and minoly from the Falklands, possibly based on my comments earlier, and I do not feel that that is very plausible based on the fact that Argentina implemented the democratic governement of Chile, and saved their people from communist gorillas terrorism and attack. Plus I feel that my work and such is all for nod. Anyway i will post today, but I will not be responding to anything anyonese types as I dont want to overreact and say something I may regret later on. G greg e (talk) 03:13, April 21, 2013 (UTC)
I don't think that the Falklands are being anti-Argentinian, the Riots can be solved in about one turn by just superficially changing a chain of command, and why do you think my army did a protest, they were abandoned in enemy territory for a year, but I agree that Chile is being anti-Argentinian but I think he is just making it clear he is his own country within the UR. Local (talk) 21:10, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
He's quit now, and I am toning down the amount I post, so if g greg e posts in the UR post about the Falklands thats fine, but I might post occationly, so can I still be listed as the falklands? Local (talk)
- I am going to create a page as the Republicas Unidas... with no country names, the offical name will be listen in the article.
- Could you add this image as the "flag" of Antartida (eagle with penguins in the seal)
- Could you add my Argentina page to the Templete
I dont mean to rush you, but when will the Vatican be decided, it sounded like a desperate sitution when you posted it, so maybe in the next two or three turns? G greg e (talk) 14:30, April 16, 2013 (UTC)
Hello, as a new member, just joined as Chile, I just want him to make sure that he understands that he is a part of the UR and that he has to act in the interest of the UR. if he does not wish to conitnue as chile he could still chose another nation G greg e (talk) I honestly thought i was controlling the whole UR except for states with a user i annexed, but yeah . G greg e (talk)
Hello, so i was thinking about the situation i am with the UR and him joining as Chile, originally, I was planning on doing what Hailstormer did, where he controls all the states within it, unless they were annexed with a user controlling them. After thinking about it, with communication hard enough in this game, about asking him to chose another country. As a mod, could you give me some guidence on this. Hindsight being twenty-twenty, I should have done what the Commonwealth, UK, and Bohemia have done placing their name next to all the countries/vassels, in their nations. Something that i admire about your map game and short story and other articles is the effort you have put in. I just dont want to lose control and experience and effort I have began to put into this map game. So please send some guidence my way. Best regards G greg e (talk)
Something has happened to the Night of the Living Alt Hist page. Its covered in a load of coding.Local (talk)
Hey, chile just quit, and his last post seems to be pretty attacking, can he do that? just wanted to know, also a little bit of it seem very implausible, while most of it is pretty implausible. G greg e (talk) 18:18, April 24, 2013 (UTC)
So what would you like me to do about Bolivia, it seems to be a special case, further research reveals that Bolivia is indeed a multinational state already, so division into two or three national states would not be a problem. The Plan was to integrate two cultures already found within the UR into the UR, that being Guiani and its subcultures and the Quecha. Therefore I cut off the drk. orange section off just north of La Paz, and even gave their Bolivia their former capital Sucre. I still need a name for the drk. orange partition, which was to be given Falkland type status. Let me know what you think. Also, why is the US supporting the war on Turkey, wouldnt Cold War ties prevent this because the Soviets are supporting the EHU? Just wondering G greg e (talk) 14:29, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
Also I am willing help create maps, if there is a talk/map change page created that outlines what needs to be done as right now it seems so far behind, I specifically need the Middle East cleared up as well as boundaries of new nations. G greg e (talk) 14:37, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
Hey Mscoree, With regard to your Manchurian Territory article, yes, there are things that need to be changed. China was in fact hit by the Soviets and not the Americans during Doomsday. The rest is factually accurate and I'm not quite sure why Ganon referenced Aliyev as not being the first leader of the new USSR, because he was. I think the main problem is, as Ganon already stated, that the article is a bit redundant.
I'd advise you to write more about the interim period between 1990-95, when the territory was in effect, flesh that period out, while of course using and sticking to all the already written material. My goals for the entirety of Manchuria are, or were, to recreate the Territory from Siberian acquisitions after the Second Manchurian War with Imperial China. That is why the link to the page was red, it was to be a new article regarding the post-war region. However, due to my inactivity and the inactivity of Arstarpool, the war article still is not done. Hopefully, I'll finished by the end of May. I hope my comments helped out. Vladivostok (talk) 09:21, April 13, 2013 (UTC)
A good idea, I was thinking about doing so myself later down the line, but you beat me to it. I'll read the entirety later today and tell you what I think. By the look of things on Imperial China's main page, it seems that, if they did have a role in the conflict, it was minor.
I've scanned the article, and you'd best remove the part about the attack on Dalian, as the Siberians only took control of northern Manchuria. Consult the map of the USSR, or the current world map if you want to add a battle or two. Vladivostok (talk) 17:36, April 16, 2013 (UTC)
I'd just like to chime in and say that the Manchurian Territory is specifically called the Manchurian Territory, and not the Socialist Territory of Southern Manchuria. The name in Russian needs work as well. The article also lacks anything about what happened after the invasion of 2012.
As for the Operation Manchurian Freedom article, as LG stated, the article contains references to Imperial China attacking the USSR, which both the USSR and Imperial China pages refute. Vladivostok (talk) 11:51, May 4, 2013 (UTC)
Ms, there was no involvement whatsoever. We've both made that clear several times now.
You still also vastly overstate the opposition.
You're exaggerating the Taiwan contribution to that war. Bigtime.
Read what he said again. It's even in the same section of this talk page as I am writing in. Imperial China had no involvement. At all.
You're overstating the Taiwan involvement. They did not send "divisions." Not even close.
And, of course, you're still ignoring the main problem both me and Vlad have - you vastly overstate the opposition to OMF.
...I swear, you need to actually read what I'm posting.
I'm saying that you need to remove the word divisions. That term denotes a certain number of men, far in excess of what was sent. And you use it in the plural sense. It also means that it wasn't "volunteers" but troops outright. Nor is it used, whatsoever in the war article. I've said this three times now.
I suggest you read what Vlad said in his other posts. He has clearly said that there was no involvement.
You still miss the point. Imperial China doesn't even come into play with my main point - you give the impression that there was actually some authority in Northern Manchuria by groups. Yet, there was not. Both myself and Vlad have told you this numerous times, yet you've done nothing.
Ms, that is a line that you added to the Operation article. And needs to go, as several have indicated.
You fixed the Taiwan issue, removed around half of the Imperial China bits that need to go, and have done nothing with regards to the authority issue that me and Vlad have. Lordganon (talk) 04:55, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
The Imperial China bits that need removal are still there.
Myself and Vlad believe it to be far too much and far too organized - it does not at all match both the facts on the ground and canon. You need to fix that.
Your word changes have actually made it worse, Ms.
You are vastly overstating resistance, and the forces opposing Siberia.
And, now that I am looking at the page again today, you have a nuked city on there as having some sort of population. The other cities are overstated as well.
Large portions of the Territory article have nothing to do with the area - indeed, the history is not for the area at all until the stuff about the Manchurian War. Other objections to it remain entirely unfulfilled.
A Situation that need immediate review
Hello, concerning the game Night of Living Alternate History Map game Im a little suspicious of two players have just joined, have no other posts other than signing up for the map game, and joined barely 5 mins apart. Also they just listed their names under my country as dependencies and such without saying a work to me or anyone in the game. I was hoping you could take a look at say their IP address and such, as I myself do not want to be accused of metagaming. You can see their changes on the history page, they are signed up as Harvestor and Lord F.
These two new players and Emperor R, just edited a ton of stuff on the Nations part, including changing status of countries and adding them to the UR, with no such notifcation on my page or the timeline. I am highly concerned and honestly do not want even more players, unless I annex them, to be affecting my work.
this copy and pasted from the history guide, please take a look and at the very least i just wanted to record that I am not apart of whatever this might be.
Thank you and with upmost urgancy,
Please send me a note on my talk page
Thank you for your reply. It justs seem like a really odd coinicidence if it is. Also they didnt even message anyone on a talk page or anything.
My two brothers Finn and Harvey have decided to join the wikia but have the same IP: adress as me. Is this OK? Please dont ban me for having 3 users its me , Roman and my brothers. Tell me if they cant join before you ban anyone.
126.96.36.199 20:18, April 18, 2013 (UTC)
PS: WE are new and might make mistakes. Dont blame us for it. I am Chile, Finn (Lord Finnius) hasnt joined YET and Harvey (Harvester360) is Peru.
Yes thanks as well, you can obviously see that metagaming could be a problem, and I just wanted to bring it to the attention of the admins and mods. However, I warn that on some sites, metagaming includes not announcing any real life relationships of anyone you are playing with in the game to the game you join, while I do not know this sites policy on that, it is still the polite thing to do. G greg e (talk)
Yeah, you more or less got it.
Try not to let the talk page get any longer than about two thirds of what it was.
One of my brothers (Lord Finnius) has decided to quit the game. The other one (Harvester360) will now use another computor. IS THIS OK? CAN I NOW INTERACT FULLY AGAIN?
Hello again, hate to bother you but for map games the algorithms how would I go about using that, do I do: Franklin 5, uses defense 4, or put it into details like heavy forts our set up on the border... Thanks for the Help, and sorry I'm a "Newbie." (JiduW (talk) 03:20, April 21, 2013 (UTC))

NotLAH Mod Event Ideas
I've got ideas for mod events for NotLAH.
- The Free/Democratic/Federal Republic of Poland eventually engages in a Civil War with the Communists after a massive campaign of expansion during the winter for the both of them. It's because of the fact that zombies, logically, shouldn't have body heat which causes them to freeze quickly during the winter. This makes it much easier to reclaim territory from them during the winter, especially in Europe. Long story short the Reds lose.
- Because of the fact that virtually nothing has been said about the state of Korea I had the North Koreans be shattered after the deaths of the leader and his heir. Thus the South Koreans take atvantage of the situation by invading and conquering North Korea. They also potentially aid the Manchurians in the relaiming of the infected portions of their country.
- Some people in the remains of Central America declare the restoration of the Federal Republic of Central America as a way to pool their resources. It begins as mainly San Salvador, but slowly expands to take all of Central America.
- Surivors in Sonora and Southern Arizona unite to found the Republic of Atzlan. Zombies are easy to destroy here, as they are slow dessicated husks due to their lack of an urge to drink.
- Vegas mobsters officially establish the Republic of Las/New Vegas. It's a mafia-run city of city that makes Sodom and Gomorrah pale in comparison. The fanatics in Deseret do not like this development and attack, starting a brutal war.
- The Yugoslav government reclaims the area of Dalmatia and fortifies it.

Hi, I'm not a Mod or anything, but I have an Idea for a Mod event. The Giant evil Zombie in Florida's Deep Science, could somehow (Haemorrrhage?) infect a scientist, so that Giant Mutant Zombies spread across the USA? just an idea. Local (talk) 16:03, April 29, 2013 (UTC)
I said small navel base on the coast, not an entire nation. I made multiple requests for the United States to return the occupied teritory, which they chose to ignore. They can keep the naval base, but must return all territory to the United Kingdom. Hailstormer (talk) 19:05, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
I appreciate your request for help on a Roman alternate history but I am not especially knowledgeable on early Roman history (753-509 BCE). What I am most certain of regarding that time period in that place is that the majority of its recorded history is legend. Everything would need to be taken with a grain of salt and it would be most prudent to start looking at the effects of Rome's absence starting around the time of the Greco-Persian Wars. What happens between 753 BCE and that time would simply fill the gaps without being a useful starting point. Most history before the time in which Herodotus wrote is highly speculative (especially concerning Rome).
I don't think I have much to offer in the way of expertise in early Roman history. The most reliable source of such information (albeit to be taken with the same grain of salt) is Livy's History. It's the fundamental text on early Rome in most regards. You'll get some interesting references to the interactions of Rome with the Gauls in the 4th century BCE and the Samnites (South Italian Greeks) before and around the Greco-Persian Wars. I think it is safe to say these interactions are the first major influences of Rome on the world at large.
If you have more specific questions than general advice I'd be happy to do what I can to answer your questions and provide source material to back up any work you base on my answers.

Recently you uploaded a flag of Cyprus, which is a duplicate. This is the second time I informed you not to add duplicates. You will not be warned again. --NuclearVacuum (Talk) 17:55, April 28, 2013 (UTC)
Dude this can become cannon because they are just illagitement claims by Julian Smith.

Rebuild (Map Game)
In the ruins of Rome
I know this might be alot to ask but I was wondering if you, a experianced wiki person and me a new bie could create a really cool map game. the game basically is where you are a person and you create your own kingdom after Rome fell. Will you help me with all the crazy map game stuff I don't get (Algorithum and more insight). --Octivian Marius (talk) 20:14, May 2, 2013 (UTC)
That parody of The First Oration Against Catiline, spoken by Cicero.
LOL. That is the first time I have ever 'LOL'ed something in my life, but it accuratly describes my emotions on reading. Wonderful. Thank you. David Rain (Sometimes...) (talk) 17:36, May 3, 2013 (UTC)
Soviet Union (NotLAH)
I'm going to slowly tear the Soviet Union apart, because I'm pretty sure he hasn't posted in five days (which is the cutoff point as far as I'm concerned). Yank 22:51, May 3, 2013 (UTC)
If I had gone with my first instinct I would have eviscerated those damn dirty Commies immediately. For now there's just increasing anti-Soviet feelings and the Reds are being punted out of Poland for taking too long with their presumed foot-dragging. In the future at least Ukraine will declare independance from the Soviets. Can I ask which nation the Soviets are essential in destroying? Yank 23:37, May 3, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah I hate Turkey too. Those assholes really enjoy sticking their noses where they don't belong. Polan's still had enough of the Soviets. Yank 00:20, May 4, 2013 (UTC)
Are you playing
I imagined the emergence of Scandinavia because there are pieces of Sweden, Norway and Finland that are uninfected and right next to each other. I just thought it'd be plausible that they'd come together against the undead. Yank 02:49, May 5, 2013 (UTC)
The best part is that, unlike most of my additions, Scandinavia is effectively already on the map. Speaking of map, then where is Leavenworth, and Vegas and all the other nations we've added over the years?
The Storm (NotLAH)
I'm guessing that The Storm may slowly gain pro-US sympathies, due to the fact that the position of "Great Satan" may have been taken by Turkey after their recent actions. And your recent Anti-Turkish actions may warm them to you.Yank 23:14, May 5, 2013 (UTC)
That makes sense. The Americans funded the anti-Soviet rebels in Afghanistan and still got the Taliban. On an unrelated note, I want to know what Bohemia's scores are. I don't know how high everything is. Yank 23:53, May 5, 2013 (UTC)
What page do I actually use my scores on? Yank 00:36, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
I was wondering that because we are doubling the spped of the game, whether we could double the expansion rates of Industry and Army and stuff back to 0.5? Plus, would you be able to work out my stability scores? :D Imp (Say Hi?!) 13:12, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
Chan Santa Cruz (NoLAH)
Just posted. Is it ok?
Joining Map Game
I am intersted in joinging your map game Night of the Living Alternate History as California or maybe a different country. But this would be my first map game. Could you possibly give me some tips and such to joining... and also a little tutorial.
Well, thanks... Hope you answer this ASAP

Uploading the correct files
For the past couple of days, you have been uploading several files over from Wikimedia Commons, all of which you have been uploaded incorrectly. If it is not too much trouble, I am asking you to please keep in mind to upload the correct vector files.
So as to not spark confusion, I will explain how to do so. Unlike regular files, you save vector files by right-clicking "Save Page As" instead of "Save File As" (it is the same thing). Also be sure to add the licensing "I got this from Wikipedia" when uploading.
- You uploaded three files from Wikipedia today, all of which incorrectly. Do you require more assistance? --NuclearVacuum (Talk) 03:22, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Recent Mod events NotLAH
Why are the these mod events so anti-me, I ask for negoation with these nations, to which no mods respond to! No nation, especially in these two cases which i will address individually. First, Bolvia is a multi-national state, that means that there very well could be areas the would much rather identify with similar culture and socialiate goals, such as the Quechaya parts or the are of Santa Cruz. They have ties to Northern Chile and Argentina, and Santa Cruz to Northern Paraguay. These two regions would have to easily consider joining the UR, and at least in a protactorate state, which is what i wanted to negotate if I couldnt directally admit them into the UR. So that negotion is plausible since Bolivia is already many nations and cultures. Also the department of Santa Cruz has been occupied and rebuilt by the UR for the last 7 or so years, thus the people in that region would LOVE the UR and its goals and the UR put it backs on its feet. Second, the Brazil had abondand its people, back when Olliethecroom was its leader, and the UR took it upon itself to liberate the major cities and set them back on their feet, also I had already invited them into the UR and funded Pro-UR parties, thus futher increasing their likelyhood to join. And no nation, that much in debt to another nation would dare threaten that especially when all I asked for was to talk to their government!!! Please respond asap! G greg e (talk) 22:58, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
Alright I did overreact a bit, however your wording in the mod-events is very harsh. 1. I am tyring to continue relations with Bolivia, however it is a bit insaine that neither country would talk to me, no matter what i have or havent done. 2. Santa Cruz, the part of Bolivia I was trying to get to join the UR, has had many many independence movements in the past and most recently in 2011 OTL. 3. I am not trying to walk all over any nation, in fact I wanted to talk with Brazil so they could be admitted in LAL, create a trade agreement, a NAP, and all i 'wanted" as their repayment was a Northern atlantic naval base - my talking had nothing to do with not giving back their territories, in fact the opposite (so when i as a player am trying to strenghten my relations with a nation, and in a mod event you take every chance away from, me...thats hardly fair), something that easily could be done, but no mod or anyone ever responded, in fact in the next mod event all of a sudden a Brazil is mad at me? Thats not very civil, and i acted completly pragmatic in asking both nations for negotiations. Let me know, I just ask that you edit the wording in the mod events to be more rational and less aggressive. Also i didnt get a response on my papacy invitation G greg e (talk) 02:52, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
Should I use it for this turn or later? Also Colombia (and its influenced states) pledged to help me in this war earlier, but he hasnt been on. As he gets the provinces north of Lima, is it safe to say he at least sends military support? (being a part of the LAL) I dont think he will be logging on before the turn rolls so im going to do a quick algorythem now...not final. Also since the US sent support in the war on communism before, and this is a continuation I would presume your sending support again? G greg e (talk) 14:41, May 14, 2013 (UTC)
Proposed Nation (NotLAH)
I know that thereare already a few nations in Califronia, but mine would be establsihed around a strip of land around Los Angeles and the Channel Islands.. LA is the capital.
Also, where is the interface site to do my first post? just link me.... Hope you answer ASAP
Can you please give some basic information about Northern Calfornia? I am making a page about it...
Well, can you please name all the nations that occupy the territory of the OTL US state of California? (other than mine)
I already made a post concerning territorial changes on Northern Califronia. It annexed the southern part of the OTL state, making it control almost all the territory of the state OTL. May you please update the map?
Lol, wow. All I did was fix up the map. Although I do like making maps. I will try to get all these changes done, lol. PLus, most of Africa would still be in deep zombie land (as well as some parts of South America and North America). Should I make it so? :D Imp (Say Hi?!) 13:38, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
I got a smarter idea. Why not just make a large black border for areas where zombies roam free? Much less time-consuming and still gives a jist as to where the zombies are. What dya think? :D Imp (Say Hi?!) 13:41, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Mscoree, I ll work on the map a little more later tonight... I propose we keep zombies off of one map and just add them on regional/another map. Second, when was their an event that dropped my stability. I get the war dropping it a little, although in the end the war did create a more stable UR state politcally and socially. Also ive been improving my infastructure, am a highly researched nation, and have many inter-national organizations... so my stablitly should at least be where it was, if not higher, at least in my opinion. Thanks. G greg e (talk) 14:05, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Alright, My troops arent involved in any "forgein" places except for Santa Cruz at the moment. And if this is the case then every other nation in one of those wars needs to start droping. Also i feel by allowing Bolivian Independence that should also positively impact my score. Btw what are the stability ratings of Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, and Colombia?
Ok. So me'n Greg have got different versions. You can check them over and see which one you prefer. Plus, I was wondering with the Tutonic Nights were (ie what areas they held). :D Imp (Say Hi?!) 15:53, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Can i edit the new map...you are missing some nations...
2. British Columbia is apart from canada
3. Whats the decision on Greenland, he said he began colonizing them, and no mod event wipped it out
4. You gave me a portion of Southern Brazil, while thats nice, i do not own it, also Peru should have zombies in it as no one has cleared it out.
5. All nations with a government deserve a color
6. We have disputed Antarctic territory.
I'll modify my post that will instead say reducing those states to vassalage. and also inform me about all the ATL nations in North America, and the process of invasion (maybe i need to read the rules first). I'm a newcomer.
could you get on chat
posted what i have on documents and treaties page...feel free to create your own page for it if you wish... We are meeting in Cordoba, Argentina, United Republics. LAL officals will be invited to advise and mediate the converstations (that means Colombia). Please respond as soon as you can so we can solve this asap. Thanks G greg e (talk) 01:49, May 15, 2013 (UTC) Also, shall propose a new UN this turn and invite people to a summit in Buenos Aires and La Plata. G greg e (talk) 01:57, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Response up, we should be able to agree to the first few section this turn. With the others being the most diverse in what the UR would want and what "Peru" would want However, this should solve all my qualms with Brazil and help Bolivia and Santa Cruz.. Please respond asap G greg e (talk) 22:39, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
I'd like to request Texas being added to the template at the bottom. I know that I haven't made a page yet, but there are nations listed that also don't have pages, and Texas is a larger, more powerful nation that some of them. Also, I've noticed there haven't been any Texas-related mod events, even during the civil war. Was there a particular reason, or did you and the other mods not notice? Doctor Evulz (talk) 20:38, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
I'm like the English professor in the men's room.
I don't write on the walls - I just correct the spelling and grammar.
Wu-Yue war algorithim
P.S. Wu is trying to annex Yue, since both have a Chinese cultural basis. Also, we have a slightly larger population than Yue and we currenty have larger control of the seas.
Japan in NotLAH
Well, seeing as the zombies are now gone from Japan, there's really no point now. However, I do wish to create the Republic of Kyushu as a vassal state since it's still in ruins. It would be for a while until around 2009 when it can join Japan again, if it's okay with you. -Kogasa 2013 May 16, 16:57 (CET)
Turkish vs Turks
You said: "I know you're trying to help, but what I meant was, I'd prefer if you didn't change Turkish to Turks for no reason,"
Ah - but there IS a reason. Some times "turkish" is correct and some times "turks" is correct.
"Turkish" is an adjective. "Turks" is a noun.
Chan Santa Cruz.
Hi. Could you add my nation page to the template please? Thanks,
That pisses me off to no end. The name "Apache Republic" was given to the nation by a new player who basically flaked before he reallly got started. The numbskull didn't realize that the region was already united under a nation named Atzlan, which I think is much more interesting than "Apache Republic". He's been gone long enough for that to be basically wiped clean. Yank 02:52, May 17, 2013 (UTC)
Fine I'll drop it. I still want to re-establish Atzlan in southern Arizona, but I'll drop the mention of Pedro's tyranny. I still think that the survivors of southern Arizona don't want Pedro's Apache raiders to return. Yank 16:04, May 17, 2013 (UTC)
NotLAH map issue (Unnamed nations)
Excuse me, i saw on the map on the map game that there are many countries in what used to be California (NOTE: I played Northern California) Here it is:
I thought that the sicilian deal means that Savoy Naples would control all of Italy. Can I join the CM now? Why did you cross my stuff out on notLAH and why can't I join the CM. --Octivian Marius (talk) 22:27, May 23, 2013 (UTC)
Quoting this directly from my 1983 (OH **** I SCREWED UP THERE MATE.) "Commonwealth: A modified version of the Phlaxicortin is tested on the second Zombie (RNG Failure/Sucess). Dubstep continues to be popular. Continues development and expansion, navy reaches 2.5"
United League of Nations
In the next mod event can you post that all nations are invited to the United League of Nations and ask them to in thier post, post who they wish to represent their region on the permanent council. More details on the ULN page of members and regions, and for you continued support on the ULN the USA is a permanent permanent council member. Also any help on that page would be appriciated! Thanks G greg e (talk) 16:38, May 22, 2013 (UTC)
Can you add this to the mod events?!? please?!? Also rex asked me to post for him on friday to monday as he will be out of town and continue the message of his next and last few posts. G greg e (talk) 01:30, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
The Channel League and Southwest League should apply for ULN membership as one body. At least as an observer member.
World War Z Map Game
Love your Night of the Living Alt History Map Game and your community definitely seems to dig it too! Was wondering if you had any plans to do something similar around the World War Z universe? We'd be interested in helping you to promote it if so. Feel free to reach out to me any time...
Peter 18:45, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
For the Algorithm, I'll need to know the required information (high ground, scores, populations, etc.) of Texas and the New Mexican city-states. I figured you'd know.
Flag Proposal (NotLAH)
Well, i made my own flag for Northern California. It has a green-white-red tricolor (Mexican shades) and has the Eagle of St. John the Evangelist (design is from an old flag of Spain). so here it is:
And also, my nation isn't list on the template, so i respectfully say that please add mine.
i hope you like it. please respond ASAP.
