Welcome to Wikipedia

Figured I'd be the first one to tell you, but you have your own Wikipedia biography. Just got reviewed and its stayin. Congrats man, you reached a level of notability only help before by Travis McHenry, you achieved the ultimate goal of being immortalized on Wikipedia lmao.

What happened to the font of this wiki?

Suddenly, I came to this wiki and then recognized this was unreadable unless I hover my mouse pointer. What has happened? When I go to my browser settings and make my font OpenDyslexic, then it makes everything but bold text readable?

@Eshaan011: It is an April Fool's joke. The font will be changed to the regular readable font on 2 April. Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  1:10 am (UTC), 1 April 2020

Delete Arkovia, Promatia, Dominus Vilicus

Recent Deleting Policy

Good morning majesty, As of today, I've been in microwiki for two years. I have seen the recent deleting policy. I understand that the site is visited by children but wikipedia is also visited by children and yet it contains many items for adults. We are a free encyclopedia like Wikipedia and I believe that the deleted article should remain.

I wish you a good day and a good reflection.

Asking for you to weigh in

I'm sorry that I have to ask this, but could you please weigh in on an ongoing dispute for the Confederation of Mahuset article. I have tried to be patient and reasonable, and have gone to great lengths to explain where I am coming from. Admin User:Z. Luna Skye even weighed in and said that the red link banner I added is allowed. The other party, User:MinistryOfForeignAffairsEncylopaedicRepresentationProject refuses to acknowledge Admin authority (although initially indicating they would), and I really would prefer not to drag out what has started to become an edit war. All of the relevant info can be found on the talk page. Thank you.--DukeBearPeninsula (talk) 16:53, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

requesting a news source

hi I would like to request these official news source to be allowed to publish news on the front page

The Neuborrnia Times - Neuborrnia-Merientalia


Jaringan Berita /AIM/ News Network - Indonesian Sector/Association of Indonesian Micronations


Sorry for the late reply; I'll put them before the admin team for consideration. Austenasia (talk) 05:51, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

with respect to new territory

Your Imperial Majesty, I am sorry that I cannot reveal the address of my villa. When I thought about it in my own way, I thought my actions were stupid. However, I can reveal the address in a park near my home if you like. Thank you for your consideration. Carlos (talk) 03:31, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

We would still need a postal address for mail correspondence and the like. I'm sorry but you've been messaging me for some time now and we're no closer to a suitable offer. I'm going to have to decline - my apologies. Austenasia (talk) 15:25, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

All right, I apologize for causing you a lot of trouble.Thank you very much Carlos (talk) 10:58, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Why did you block my account from microwiki‽

Sir ,

I will like you to tell me, why you blocked my account "Turk patriot 3000000", and you forbid me to edit to my talk page, or to send the emails to you, and so the only way how I can appeal my banishing is to make another false account and tell the appeal to you with it. Why?

You say that I was doing intimidating and harasing behaviors. I didn't talk to anybody the whole time on microwiki. I did not say anything about any persons. Who did I harass or intimidate ? Who?

Turk Patriot 30000000 (talk) 22:20, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

The inflammatory, extreme, and misleading views expressed on your user page and article were considered by the admin team to be unsuitable for this website. Austenasia (talk) 14:06, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

User:EmperorAdamI consistently and unfairly blocks and reblocks User:OIMGov while having direct interest in having him blocked


This post is written in the assumption that you're a reasonable person and that your interest lies with making MicroWiki as good and accurate as possible. User:OIMGov has now been blocked a second time on false grounds of inserting false information, when all he did was change information to either be more up-to-date or more accurate. I believe that User:EmperorAdamI has personal interests in blocking both User:OIMGov and User:Mahuset (the latter not being blocked because of the fact he hasn't used MicroWiki in months) as both are infamously well known critics of the GUM. Therefore I'd like to pose the following questions:

  • Which parts of the information inserted by User:OIMGov is actually false?
  • Why did this warrant him being banned?
  • What conditions decide who is or isn't a MicroWiki administrator?
  • Is it a possibility to keep biased administrators with a direct conflict of interest from editing certain pages? If so, why hasn't it been done already? If not, why not?

Thank you,

Hello, talk page stalker Zed here. I will let Jonathan answer these questions, but I want to say MissEDconexion (the person who unbanned him) did not consult any of the other admins, and Hasan has been re-banned for his original offence. We are discussing this right now. Flag of New Eiffel.svg/Royal coat of arms of New Eiffel.svg Zed Zarel  My Talk Page  Contribs  3:53 pm (14:53), 1 May 2020 (BST; UTC+1)

OIMGov is banned due to a sustained campaign of vandalism he conducted on this wiki over January earlier this year. He is blocked due to the consensus of the administration; Adam may be the one to have enforced it, but the decision was not his alone. This has nothing to do with the GUM, it's simply due to the fact that he and an accomplice vandalised the wiki so much and for so long we actually had to install new security measures and to this day are still manually approving new editors. There's no way he's going to be let back on to this site any time soon. If he wants information to be updated to be more accurate, then he can ask one of the several friends he has amongst the userbase to do it for him, but he is no longer welcome. Austenasia (talk) 14:55, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

2018 Fesmar page vandalism.

Greeting, Jonathan, it is me Kenneth/Tophatdalek can I ask for a statement by you on the validity of my statement that the Fesmar page in 2018 was being vandalised at such a rate it forced us to ask for the page to be protected. Thank you in advance. The reason btw is because I have reason to believe the Spencer guy who did the edits has pretended to be me on the Microwiki discord in an attempt to get me removed for ban evasion, hence I would like all the evidence of this guy's longstanding attempts at harming the nation and my own reputation. Thank you once more

Yours sincerely Kenneth III - Fesmarian emperor.

I believe this is the incident being referred to. Austenasia (talk) 17:39, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

That is correct although the response was not conducted by myself as my account had been handed over to someone else at the time. Thank you for the help. Wishing Austenasia the best during this pandemic.

May you give all micronation leaders admin‽

I am the great emperor of the Timonocite Empire and since I am the leader of a micronation, give me admin. Also give admin to other users, that are the leader of their micronation. Thanks,Great Emperor Eshaan I (talk-nation) 11:46, 14 May 2020 (EST)

MicroWiki:What not to do request

I think it would be best to remove Kingdom of the Saugeen from the Gallery of What Not To Do. The article has improved considerably since it was placed on there; likewise, there is no {{reallybad}} tag. President Aydan  05:40, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Good Article Protection Confusion

Hiya, so the Good Article nominations page is protected and has been since February? At least, that's what the page edit history says. What confuses me is that there is a repeal nomination that was added on the First of this month and it has me scratching my head. Clarification would be great, if you can spare some. --Billiam Bilson 20:19, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

I'll take a look. Austenasia (talk) 07:14, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

A new Micromedia Foundation (different from the Wikimedia Foundation)

Would you mind if we had a Micromedia Foundation, much like the Wikimedia foundation but about micronations? Here are some wikis it shall include:

Would you please mind making these projects to expand MicroWiki's resources and to make more micronational information free on the internet‽Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite

If there's demand for them, then some of these might work. Most of these ideas could probably be linked to from the Main Page. Austenasia (talk) 19:32, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
If I may intervene, I believe a lot of these, namely Microquote, Microbooks, Microsource and Microdata, would all fit excellently simply on MicroCommons. I know that quotes, legislation, and many major documents are already hosted there. Frix (talk) 22:17, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
I beleive a select few of these are a really good idea. Christoph Von Begonia 22:36, 11 July 2020 (EST)

Articles in The "Other News" Section

How many articles is too many articles for one Micronation? Is there a limit to how many they can post per week, or something of the sort? - Christoph Von Begonia, The Begonian Kaiserreich (10:31 PM EST 5/11/20)

There isn't a limit, no. The only requirement is that they be of reasonable quality. If somebody posts seven or eight "articles" the same day that are only a sentence or two long, they'll probably be removed. Austenasia (talk) 09:53, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

Easily exploitable problem

Hey so, I added the {{GA|revision=123456|date=13 July 2020}} template to a random article's page to see if it would show the green symbol, and it turns out it worked, so any old person can go and at that to the page, creating confusion. If there is some way you can change this system to make it less exploitable, that would probably fix a lot of problems. Thanks! aydan (talk) 08:57, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Zed the stalker here; It is not particularly a problem and there is no way to "fix" it that I know of, however on the main page using {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Good articles}}, it displays the number of good articles. If the number goes from 61 to 62, all I have to do is find that pesky article and remove the GA template -- I have already done this at least >eight times. Anyone who does this on their articles never last more than half-a-day, and there is no real harm if it does stay there for under a day.

Polish version


I would like to create a Polish version of MicroWiki, but I don't know how. Can you help me?

Polish Microwiki is already created. See the community portal. Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite 

Just to tell you something

I have created a Greek version of Microwiki, at https://micronations.miraheze.org. Would you mind creating a Miraheze account so you can look at stuff on the wiki? Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite

I don't understand why you keep doing things like this. You have been told time and time again: you are not an admin, so please stop acting like one. MicroWiki is a website that I personally own: you cannot make a new website with the same name and logo! Please take it down or change the name or logo because this was not made with the knowledge or approval of the MicroWiki administration and has nothing to do with us. Articles in Greek or other non-English languages can already be made on this domain and a new website outside the control of the administration is completely unnecessary. Austenasia (talk) 09:05, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
I have deleted the Greek MicroWiki. However, I think we should move the Spanish, French, Polish and all the other Microwikis mentioned on the community portal to the current MicroWiki host. I also think that all of the languages in Category:Non-English pages should have their own version of MicroWiki. The point is, I think this should be a Wikipedia for micronations. English microwiki (this one) should also be at https://en.micronations.wiki. However, https://micronations.wiki would look like https://wikipedia.org, with links to different languages.
However, unlike Wikipedia, one should be able to request a new language microwiki, including for micronational languages. (however the mediawiki set language will be English, but be written in the micronational language)
Great Emperor Eshaan I - 22:08 2 September 2020 (SGT)
Oh, and please delete Template:Micronation Page and Template:Micronation Page/doc, I was trying to make a template so a page could easily be made however I could not continue editing due to Template:PageTitle it was no longer possible please delete. Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite 

The websites linked to on the community portal aren't part of MicroWiki, but host their own small communities. They're all very small and mostly inactive, and tbh I'd forgotten they exist :P I've deleted the templates you made. Austenasia (talk) 10:49, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
But could they become a part of MicroWiki by the same host? Just asking. Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite 

One thing must be done

May you please change the default wiki language to EN-GB (British English)? The policy states that articles should be in British English, so could you change the default language? Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite 

How do you mean? The default language is already British English, as you say. Austenasia (talk) 10:49, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
But when you come onto MicroWiki, and create an account, and then view your preferences, it says the default language is English (EN). However, British English (EN-GB) is available too, so could you make it default for new users?
Ah, I understand. I'll see if this can be done. Austenasia (talk) 16:45, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
Also, could you place a link to MicroWiki Dictionary after the one to MicroWiki Commons in the sidebar? It'd also be nice if you made a new project called MicroVoyage for micronational tourism and linked to that as well. Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite 

Add Template:Translate to the main page

A user on MicroWiki might not be able to read the thing that says "MicroWiki in many languages" because they do not speak English, so then they could just tap the name of their language on the main page and easily see the main page in another language. This will also make MicroWiki accessible to more users. (For the MicroWiki in other languages, there are other language versions of the main page)(This could replace what I was talking about earlier to you)Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonoucite 

That is a good idea - indeed, I think it's the way Wikipedia does it - and I'll look into how it can be done. Austenasia (talk) 10:23, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Also, can we make a new site from Microwiki called MicroVoyage for micronational tourism? And along with MicroWiki Dictionary, link to it in the sidebar? Timonoucitian Flag.png/Coat of arms of the Timonocite Empire.png Emperor Eshaan I  My Talk Page  Timonocite  04:38, 13 September 2020 (UTC)
