Cultus Task Force

A multilingual project to improve the Cultus Deorum documents on this site.

Salve! Thank you for helping, and please remember to follow all steps of the Fourfold Way:

The Fourfold way is the basic set of steps used for all edits.

Step 1. Click the edit tab to start making your edits.

Step 2. Enter a note in the edit Summary so others know what you have done. A summary might be as simple as "fix typos", "add links" or "add photo". Not leaving a summary is very bad form.

Step 3. Show preview to check your changes. If it isn't right, go back and do more editing. Every time you save, you create a version of the page that will be saved forever. Unnecessary saves create unnecessary load when backing up the database. Be kind to the server and preview before saving.

Step 4. When you have checked everything, click Save page.

Thank you for your contributions!


Carissime Canine! Thank you for working on our website! Please allow me to mention a consideration: our Tribus Category pages aren't intended to show current tribus members, but all members ever of that tribus. Current tribus members are displayed in the album civium surface, for example yours here: Tribe XXIII: Pupinia. My suggestion, if you feel like to do this, add these links to all tribes in the Tribus Category pages, indicating that these links guide the visitor to current members. Thank you again for your valuable work and dedication! --Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus 01:06, 15 December 2012 (CET)

Those lex pages you created

Salve, Canine! I have just realized that I should ask before I go and delete them, why did you create duplicate pages for the laws? While I was deleting them, believing you created them out of error, I realized you might have had some special reason, for example? Please enlighten me, and recreate them if needed. Vale! --Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus 14:15, 11 July 2013 (CEST)

Salve, Lentule! I created a few variations as redirects so when citizens clicked on the links in the emails received through the Yahoo mailing lists they would be directed to the correct page with the full text of the leges. Since they are redirects they do not have a big impact on the Wiki. I have found that this avoids a lot of frustration for folks trying to click on links but unaware that the link is borken - most often it is missing the final paren ')' for the '(Nova Roma)' at the end of many page names. My plan was to make sure you deleted the pages after the election on July 23. --M. Pompeius Caninus 19:27, 11 July 2013 (CEST)
Okay, I have restored them, undeleted them. I will delete them after the voting period. Vale! --Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus 20:05, 11 July 2013 (CEST)

Inclusion problem

Dear magister aranearius, as you may have seen, I have conducted a series of unlucky experiments on how to solve the inclusion problem of archive pages containing inclusions (or as the Wikipedia calls them, transclusions) to current, updated, articles. For example, the "Censor" page is now updated with the current regulations of eligibility requirements, but the same transclusion is linked to dozens of past election pages. Those election pages are kept for archivation purposes (and very well so, since it might be necessary for some to see how older elections were conducted, with what candidates, what was timing, what were the requirements for candidates etc). The problem is that those old election pages now show the current eligibility requirements, not the requirements that historically were in place back then at the time of those old elections. I have tried to circumvent the problem by creating more transclusions on the "Censor" page (see here, at the bottom of the page: ) but it does not work. Interestingly, it works in the Ludi Romani at Szolnok and Plovdiv page, which has multiple such transclusions:

The transclusions in that page appear on the Ludi Romani (Nova Roma) page. The method I used is the following code (example taken from the Plovdiv and Szolnok page):

<onlyinclude>{{#ifeq:{{{transcludesection|PlovdivReports}}}|PlovdivReports| BLA BLA BLA }}</onlyinclude>

Do you have any ideas how to solve this problem? If you don't know a solution, I will manually add the historically relevant older eligibility requirement descriptions to the older centuriata/populi/plebis candidate templates. I hope we can find out something...

Vale! --Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus 21:31, 20 November 2013 (CET)

Salve mi amice!

I will do some testing, too. If the transclusion plugin is working for the Ludi Romani then it should work for other pages. Nova Roma needs to keep the old versions of the magistrate pages safely archived for future reference.

Vale bene! M. Pompeius Caninus 22:05, 20 November 2013 (CET)
