Are these more organisations, or would this be more of a government/political thing that would deem a new category? Madelyne 12:11, 26 April 2007 (GMT)

  • I thought about that and decided that if I was going to do it, I'd do it later (unless someone wants to do it now). There's so much that could potentially go into politics, IMHO. -- Delphinus @ 15:17, 26 April 2007 (GMT)

Shallam Empire? Asara 14:57, 26 April 2007 (GMT)

  • Throughout the entire pre-Seleucarian history of Shallam, the leader's title was that of Emperor. (The traditional title of "Sultan" still existed, though, as evidenced by Caro-Kann.) I imagine that'd stem from the control that Shallam exercised over a good portion of the continent for nearly a thousand years - the same dominion which allowed it to quite literally pave itself in gold. The emperor article mentions it to some extent, if I recall. -- Delphinus @ 15:17, 26 April 2007 (GMT)
    • Perfect. Should we direct the link to a separate "Shallamese Empire" then, as "Empire" is indicative of a time pre-Seleucar and today's Shallam is not usually referenced as an Empire but as a city-state who no longer holds that extent of territory? Asara 18:08, 26 April 2007 (GMT)
      • Which, of course, would lead to a disambiguation page for Shallam (city) and Shallam (empire). Madelyne 21:17, 26 April 2007 (GMT)
        • I don't really see a need to differentiate. As far as is known, Shallam as a city and Shallam as an empire were the same political entity. Seleucar and the Seleucarian Empire, however, were distinct creatures in entirely different leagues. -- Delphinus @ 23:06, 26 April 2007 (GMT)
          • Hmm, they may still technically be the same tangible entity today, but Shallam as a city and Shallam as an empire have distinct territories in entirely different ages. Shallam (city) is today's Shallam. Shallam (empire) is Shallam pre-Selecular. *shrug*. Up to you all though, of course. Asara 00:29, 27 April 2007 (GMT)
          • Or, even better, let's put some sort of mention of the Shallamese Empire in the actual Shallam article? Perhaps under history? Asara 00:29, 27 April 2007 (GMT)
            • Yeah, if there isn't a mention already, there should be. On an unrelated note, what do you think of this bullet indentation thing? Easier to read? Harder on the eyes? -- Delphinus @ 01:52, 27 April 2007 (GMT)
              • Easier on the eyes, yeah. Madelyne 17:50, 27 April 2007 (GMT)
  • Anyway to space the bullets? When it's that close together and that large it's hard for me to read. Corvax 17:37, 28 April 2007 (GMT)
