Alternative History

I do not understand how the "category" tags work.

[[Category:Cambridge Computing]]

This (above) only makes a link to the Cambridge Computing index page when it is on the main Cambridge Computing page but not on other pages like Princeton (Cambridge Computing). ? JWSchmidt 21:44, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

Each article that belongs to a category, v.g. Cambridge Computing, should have, anywhere in the text the code
[[Category:Cambridge Computing]]
this way, in the page Category:Cambridge Computing the article will be listed.

Hello. I'm writing a novel with a rather similar background to this, and was wondering how accurate this was. Could anyone tell me before I spend half a year digging up various facts only to find out that this was rather close? - EMAIL at

That strange language

Supongo que era una forma irónica de decir que me resulta dificil tomar notas en otra lengua que no sea esta que hablamos. --haylli (messages) 16:28, 5 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Ecuador to Equador

What about change Ecuador to Equador, as in Portuguese the Equator is Equador. BTW... the original name of Salvador was Souteropolis, although it was never adopted.

Serbia, Bosnia, Serbo-Bosnian etc. in "Chinese World"

Hello, Carlos. I was looking at your map of Europe and the list of European countries from the Chinese World, and I saw Serbia (where I live) and Bosnia listed there. When looking to the map, I think I could recognize the light-blue Serbia and dark-blue Bosnia, but I also saw some red country between them on the seacoast. Is that Montenegro, or Dubrovnik, or some other country? You could write the names of countries on the map, that would make it much easier. And I saw that your Serbia (Chinese World) and Bosnia (Chinese World) articles are stubs, so I was wondering would you accept some my suggestions about them? And are you going to write an article about the Serbo-Bosnian language? I would be very glad to help you to improve somehow these articles. Best regards, --Ђорђе Д. Божовић 20:55, 15 Dec 2005 (UTC)


Hey! It's been quite some time since I've seen you around. I hope you and your family are well! Louisiannan 03:20, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Nation templates

Hi, Carlos. I created a template which is suitable for describing Celtic Rules nations, in the way I imagined them. That's why it has the {{{royal_house}}} and {{{ethnic_groups}}} parameters, as these are important in this althistory. There I have also put some of my own personal humor (the official coat of arms and the unique state flag captions) as well as lowercase initial letters instead of usual uppercase letters, which makes me feel comfortable in a certain way... (I guess it reminds me of the native Serbian orthography.) So, if you really need to replace it with the standardized template of your own, feel free to merge them... Although that template of yours seems quite complicated, doesn't it? --Ђорђе Д. Божовић (?) 19:33, 27 June 2007 (UTC)


Hello Carlos, there appears to be some confusion about what your "me too!" meant over here ;). Did you offer to become a sysop or was it just a "Hi nice to see you!" kind of "me too!". --Villa Cruoninga (talk) 10:57, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

You're now a sysop. Och jag vetat inte att du tala svenska! Varför talar du det? Louisiannan 01:30, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Good luck ;) --Karsten vK (talk) 16:46, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Strange page

I'm talking about Brasil (Greter Colombia). First, it's a typo, and second, there's also the (I think) correct page Brasil (Greater Colombia). Maybe you should delete one of them.--Max Sinister 15:51, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Your templates

Hi Chlewey,

I saw that you once made two templates you don't use anymore (if ever): Template:Succesor infobox and Template:Predecesor infobox. Can I delete them, or do you want some tips how to fix them? Meanwhile I'm pretty good with wiki templates.--Max Sinister 20:06, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Fixing them might be the better way to go, as I know others may want to use them, however, Chlewey hasn't visited us all that frequently lately, as "real life" (whatever that is :D ) has gotten in the way. Louisiannan 22:09, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks Chlewey, I deleted them.--Max Sinister 22:39, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
