I am making an order of battle for Likatonia https://particracy.fandom.com/wiki/Orde ... med_Forces does this count towards military RP when you guys are doing rankings?
Interested in not responding to ridiculous accusations, namely from Jakania, and Lourania, and now Valruzia

No. It's been a long standing policy to not include those sort of things in rankings and we do not intend to start now.

I posted this on our Discord but I know not everyone is a member. I've seen a lot of people create cabinet pages lately and to provide some uniformity, I imported and tweaked the official wikipedia cabinet template. It took quite a bit of trouble to make it work but here it is: https://particracy.fandom.com/wiki/Temp ... nt_cabinet

Hello all, I have created a new wiki page for a religion that is associated with my party but can't get the coding right, any help would be apprecaited.

The page is here - https://particracy.fandom.com/wiki/Rest ... ay_Hosians, it just shows up as the coding!
The United Ahmadiyyah Salvation Front of the Ahmadi Republic of Solentia.

There is no god but Akim, and Ahmad is his messenger.

What had happened here was that you used the coding into the visual editor - for this one you only need to write your text, while the coding is for the Source Editor. This is now fixed.

The tutorial link on the main game page is not linking to the tutorial.

Not sure what has happened here but it looks like Fandom have it set up such that if you follow a link to a page called "Help:Tutorial" on any given wiki then it will automatically redirect you to the main Fandom help/tutorial page. For this to be fixed, I think Moderation will have to set the tutorial link on the main page to link to a wiki page with a different title and then we can move the contents of the tutorial page there.

I believe that it is time for the community to seriously start considering moving wiki hosts, even if the issues with Fandom (formerly Wikia) have been known for years. Luckily for us there is already a perfect wiki host for the Particracy Wiki's requirements: Miraheze. It's a free wiki host with no ads that has been running for five years. I've discussed this on the Discord in the past but this really should take place on the forum and this thread is active again, so.

https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Moving_a ... o_Miraheze

All we would need to do is have an administrator get the XML dump from the wikia, follow the outlined process for requesting an import, and (this is maybe the main issue) change the wiki links in the game to the new wiki.

I think you also mentioned the fact that images would have to be manually transferred? I'm not doing that, and I doubt anyone else wants to do it either.

The images would always be up on the old Fandom wiki (since they don't delete wikis) for people to transfer as they want. I mean personally I'd be willing to transfer over hundreds of files myself if it means we're finally rid of the Fandom wiki skin.
