CivWiki Monday Newsletter for October 2, 2023

Good morning and happy Monday from New England!

Not a long intro today for me because I just have to make this one this week so I don’t fall too far behind unfortunately. Not even that long this week because we’re lacking on content once again, but looking forward to this week and it’s a busy one, I’m sure everyone is having a great time.

Let’s get to the news…

This week’s featured image is of New Callisto, the new capital of the Imperial Federation. It may not look like much right now, but I love the style and rustic feel of both the train station and the factory building that it’s a great start for a country that’s still feeling its way around trying to rebuild. A great start for its (third?) capital of the country, looking forward to more.

Unfortunately, I actually don’t have a featured article this week. It’s not that I had any ideas left (although, I don’t have any ideas right now), but I didn’t give the HCF War, the featured article last week, its right due on the front page the previous week, so it’s going to get shown on the front page within in the day.

Things People Care About

Poll of the Week

Last week we had… wait… 27 responses? What?

The problem last week was that I uploaded an initial version of the poll as a picture, with the actual poll right below that. I suppose a number of people got confused since I use the picture as an editing device since it doesn’t show up on my preferred editor before it goes to publishing. It won’t happen again in the future.

The first and only question, of which the data is pretty much not worth looking at, was **“Would you prefer to have less or more frequent updates?”

I think I can safely say that there are a good amount of people that do care about the updates being good and frequent, but it doesn’t matter how often things get updated. Unfortunately, I asked this because the pace we’ve been going at so far has been very, very slow. That PvP update we have been asking for a while has not happened at all yet. So we’ll have to see whether this will pan out in the future.

So what about the poll for this week? Well…

Please note that all information submitted is anonymous. A red star (

Roughly how long per day do you leave your account inactive on the server? (Botting counts, anything where you're away from your keyboard)

Sunday Night Cry for Help

I have a lot going on this week, so honestly, nothing much to say here besides thanks for reading, and…

Before you go, have a look at tybug’s op-ed this week about reliable sources on Civ. It’s well written and should help editors make CivWiki better! (This was here last week, but I assume most of you haven’t seen it.)

See you next week,
