Template request

Hi Alessa, sorry to bother you but is there any way Leresso could get a template page? --Geoboi (talk) 20:25, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

No problem; it is done. I was digging up the flag when you messaged. Enjoy! — Alessa (talk) 20:30, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

State Pages and Control of the Wiki

Having created three state pages and also now having had the three state pages be mercilessly deleted. I am at a loss as to what the reasoning for this "policing" of content related to these pages. If you would be so kind as to explain why they were deleted and what is causing this level of strict control on the wiki to be so tight at this point in time. To me it seems like this would be the sort of thing that would only curtail, frustrate or hinder creators to add new content rather than discouraging BAD content. Furthermore, it seems to me that there is a lot of content that will be hopelessly lost once the old wiki is deleted from the servers.

he pages that you referred me to give only very generalized explanations regarding overwikification. What are the plans for development of any portals to aid in better navigation and use of the content? I am also noticing that very few territories and continental pages have been created.

I would agree that there needs to be a higher degree of quality regarding the authorship of articles around the wiki when compared to the old wiki. However some of the better content that is on the old wiki will be lost for good if it is not saved and or archives. Such as the territories of Gobrassanya, Khaiwoon, and even Latina which are pages and countries that were created by some of our veteran mappers of the past. I too do not want to see the wiki sprawl out into a huge entangled mess but do think that there needs to be some more latitude. I would appreciate your explaination and feedback regarding this. Maybe this is something that other users would like to also know so that they can have a better idea as to what the expectations for quality are when creating pages are. I would like to see, rather than just outright deletion of pages, some guidance and commentary for improvements that can be made prior to just purging content for good. Or at least an opportunity to save such content for a later time when that type of content would be permitted.--Indyroads (talk) 06:22, 12 March 2022 (UTC)
