I want to personally welcome your to the Victoria 2 Wiki ! Thank you for helping out in establishing an up to date Victoria II encyclopedia. I see you registered and started your first article on loans. I'm glad you did because your article keeps on getting improved and will be of much use. I doubt the concept will change much in Heart of Darkness, so it will most probably still be up to date with version 3.1 coming our way soon. --Niptium (talk) 10:12, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Precious Metal

Hi Niptium do you think we need a seperate precious metal page (as it is special) or make it under RGO? General WVPM 18:45, 3 April 2013

I think it could first start as a section of RGO (use the == New section == code) and if the section grows too large, it could become its own article down the road. Thank you for asking and helping out !--Niptium (talk) 16:48, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Tech Schools

Hi Niptium, I copied the tech schools page from the old wiki to this and gave them credit. Is it all alright or are there still copyright problems? Greetings, General WVPM 19:00, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

I see no problem. Good job ! --Niptium (talk) 19:05, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Modding Guides

Hi Niptium, could you make the modding guides page with an overview of all the articles needed there? Greetings, General WVPM 12:05, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Done ! But you could have imported it yourself ;) It's nothing that required Admin powers :) --Niptium (talk) 12:36, 5 April 2013 (UTC)


Would you like to be an admin. ?--Niptium (talk) 12:36, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Ofcourse I would be glad to be an admin :), and good to know about the creating pages. --General WVPM 12:39, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Good! You now are an admin. You can specify it on your User page, and you can look at mine for the code in the user box. :) --Niptium (talk) 12:45, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks and I updated my page with the code. --General WVPM 12:51, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Disabling the intro video

I was looking at your article and it is an information worthy of the Wiki. But I think it might fit better into another article ? I don't know which though, maybe Cheats ? --Niptium (talk) 18:47, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi Niptium, it has nothing to do with cheating, but I agree it would better fit in another article, what about getting started (modding guides)?
Greetings, General WVPM 19:00, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
Well. It may remain its own article until something hits us on the head. --Niptium (talk) 19:27, 5 April 2013 (UTC)


Hi Niptium,
is there a way to show our current amount of members on the main page? It would be best if it updated automatically instead of manually.
Greetings, General WVPM 19:10, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

I still have to discover how to get such a list. For now I use the Recent changes link on the left in a very regular fashion. --Niptium (talk) 19:29, 5 April 2013 (UTC)


Hi Niptium,
Could you add a spoiler template?
I saw one here, but I have no idea how to add it.
Greetings General WVPM (talk) 18:10, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

This is not a common Template. It's a plugin Java template I would have to download and install. I really don't know how it works though. I'm glad you are interested enough to look out for new features though.--Niptium (talk) 23:00, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
To be honest, does the wiki really need a spoiler template? It's not like Victoria 2 is plot heavy. Unless, of course, you are referring to France's illicit love affair with Austria behind Prussia's back. -Lockeslylcrit (talk) 12:41, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Haha, its not for plot things but for large codes in the modding section mainly.
Greetings General WVPM (talk) 12:44, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
You've got a point there. A toggle button for long code can definitely help keep a page clean. -Lockeslylcrit (talk) 13:09, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
This might be a good time to talk about this feature you've been longing for with Meneth --Niptium (talk) 00:46, 17 April 2013 (CEST)
  • Meneth gave me the code for the spoiler, and I turned it into a template over at Template:Spoiler. The instructions are on that page, I can explain them if they are confusing. Ryan Vesey (talk) 20:04, 22 April 2013 (CEST)

Should Jan Mayen be deleted?

Jan Mayen is some type of satirical hoax article, I feel like it should be deleted or moved somewhere where humor is fine. 18:34, 22 April 2013 (CEST)

Yeah, a wiki isn't really the place for satirical articles. Occasional humor is of course fine, but it should never be the focus of an entire article. ~ Meneth (talk) 18:46, 22 April 2013 (CEST)
Why is this on my talk page? Instead of the Jan Mayen talk page? General WVPM
I just checked the recent changes and you were the first admin I found. (I'm the same person as the anon above) Ryan Vesey (talk) 20:02, 22 April 2013 (CEST)
For future reference, I'm the owner of the wiki. ~ Meneth (talk) 20:19, 22 April 2013 (CEST)

Unlocking inventions to test units

Yes, that's what I had to go with. There's no other way to make the disparity in unit stats so high, and you need a pretty big difference to have a chance to see any difference.

The console is a wonderful thing.
