* Need to add French Guyana to the map. Just be careful though as the current downloadable map has the wrong country- it's got Guyana flagged as French Guyana, when it's really two countries over to the right.
This has already been discussed under TalkAmazonia. We had to edit Guyana to French Guiana and it's references. The map is from Wordman's Sixth World site which is fairly old.--UserYoungFreud 2228, 14 Oct 2004 (Eastern Daylight Time)
YotC p85. Nepal was a hotspot for naturally occuring Orichalcum when the comet was around.
SotA 2064 p15. Pakistan is a nuclear power with development program is notorious for leaks, mainly from corrupt officials selling to terrorists and policlubs.
SotA 2063 p64. Guangxi and the Canton Confederation involved in large border clashes after China breaks up some time in 2018, leading it to become a major mercenary hotspot.
Guangxi is a major smuggling pipeline into southern China.
Target Wastelands p40. Gobi desert used as a weapons smuggling pipeline into northern China.
Corporate Download p116. Yamatetsu has set up operations in Manchuria.
Was the first province in China to break away from central authority in the early 'teens.
Target Wastelands p46. Natural Orichalcum appeared and disappeared with the passing of the Comet in the Taklimakan desert. The resultant prospecting discovered precious gem deposits.
Corporate Download p10. In 2045 when Wuxing was declared double AA rated, Wuxing refused to recognise them as they didn't want to lose control of several key docks Wuxing ran through extraterritoriality. Wuxing complained to the Corporate Court and pressure was brought to bear that forced a regeime change.

== Western China Named RoC? ==
I wonder about the accuracy of this statement in the time line, "The rump nation is renamed the Republic of China" since the Nationalists have always called whatever part of China they own the Republic of China (currently in the real world this is the island of Taiwan + some other small bits of land) so that would make two countries, both called RoC? Unless Taiwan changed its name at some point? Is there a source for this?
Also 'rump' would be pretty confusing to anyone who doesn't think of the geography of China looking like a chicken. Probably should use 'western' instead.

Dragons p117. Seems that the Chinese Communist Party splintered in 2018.
Target Awakened Lands p92. Run by a Neo-Communist government. Invaded and occupied the neighbouring Shaanxi province in 2062 then turned round and prepared to invade the neighbouring Shandong province before the intervention of Lung at Tai-Shan stopped them.
Dragons p114. The province is home to the Shaolin Temple- birthplace of Zen Buddhism, the Zhungyue Temple- one of the earliest Taoist temples and the Shonyang Academy.
Target Awakened Lands p92. Invaded and occupied by the Henan Neo-Communists.
Target Awakened Lands p92. Heavily industrialised. Wuxing, Mitsuhama and other corporate interests have operations in the province.
State of the Art 2063 p64. Imperial Kingdom of Beijing mentioned in passing.
State of the Art 2063 p64. The largest hangout and recruiting ground for mercenaries in the Far East. Main industries are the large casinos since they didn't go for attaracting large corporate investment like Hong Kong. The Yakuza and Seoulpa Rings are the big groups in the underworld since the Triads control Hong Kong although they've still got the local Triads. Major smuggling hub- traffic seems to be Chinese and Russian arms being sold to Guangxi and Vietnamese pirates, and heroin and Indochinese magical compounds heading up to Vladivostok.
Dragons p117. Militaristic, magocratic warlord state located in central China. Run by a General Liang who shot to fame defending the territory from Canton Confederacy raiders in 2042, was promptly promoted by the military to a generalcy and took over the place by 2044. Capital is Chengdu and although it has elections, a legislature, judicial system and calls itself a Republic, Liang runs the place with Lung running him. Unless you're magically active you're informally barred from higher position in the local government.
Although there was the mention of the South East Asia War Zone in Fields of Fire, we've had a number of Third Edition mentions of it and the countries there so we might be an idea to include them back on the map.
Threats p13. Alamos 20K operates a front organization called the 'Army of Light'- a human supremacist, apocalyptical cult based out of Vietnam with their fingers also secretly in the local and international drugs trade.
Blood in the Boardroom p71. Says that several corporation from Vietnam and Thailand are members of the Pacific Prosperity Group, suggesting that they're still proper countires and contradicting Fields of Fire.
Cyberpirates p123. Imperial Japan has a lot of control over THailand and Cambodia, but nowhere near as much as with the Philippines. Chon Buri and Sattahip, just south of Krung Thep (Bangkok) sprawl, are major areas for illegal frugs trade.
You know, I enjoyed Wordman's work, but ''Fields of Fire'' was saying the borders had "''virtually'' disappeared", not that the actual countries and governments on each side ot the borders had ''really'' disappeared. Even nowadays, these borders somewhere in the middle of SEA jungle are already quite virtual, with no patrol or custom posts.

Hey could you not erase my stuff without telling me why I'm doing a project for school and I want credit for this assignment. userLarseeri 1110, 28 April 2006 (EDT)
Larseeri, your contributions are not relevant to the Sixth World Wiki. They are, therefore, being deleted. userAdamJury 1227, 28 April 2006 (EDT)
Hey Adam, is there something off with the templates? I was trying to edit the Tibet page and noticed that the Leaders heading between Capital and GDP in the summary bit at the top right of the page isn't showing. That and if you try to put something in for it, it screws up the formatting. Since it's happening on a lot of pages I'm guessing it's the template or something major but have no idea how you find/fix that.
Also, it seems there's been a a few new formats cropping up, witness the Pueblo Corporate Council page. Are we switching over or what, since different formats on different pages just seems wrong to me? Sticking the questions here since a) I wasn't sure where to put them in-wiki, and b) this kinda falls under the "I guess in some ways, I am in charge of this thing" bit. Sorry to drop all the questions on you. ;)

==Problem with date/time stamps on edits==
Hello. Found a page with an error. So I created a user to fix that error. And have got carried away a bit. )
I noticed a weird thing about the date/time stamps on edits. They are not all the correct time. And their difference from the correct time varies.
Initially I noticed this on the SpecialRecentchanges. That pages were not appearing in the same order that I had edited them. Some times were 30 minutes in the future.
(All times that were out were moved forward in time, not backward in time)
And then I had a problem with 2 edits of a page appearing in reverse order. In the http//wiki.dumpshock.com/index.php?title=TemplateStub&action=history history of the TemplateStub page these 2 edits are in reverse order
(cur) (last) 1443, 27 November 2006 AusRPGer (made the background colour lighter as it was too domanant () and added a lightgrey border)
(cur) (last) 1441, 27 November 2006 AusRPGer (added CategoryTemplates - If you put templates into a category it might be easier to find them ))
Any idea why this is happening?
--UserAusRPGer 0329, 27 November 2006 (EST)
yo. The clock on the server that the wiki is on is a little bit messed up; the wiki should be migrating servers soon, but since it's an all-volunteer thing I can't nag NeuronBasher too much about it.
Once that server move is completed, we should be moving forward with some other software updates, some anti-spam stuff, etc.
--UserAdamJury 0228, 3 December 2006 (EST)
Not a problem. I understand that it is a site run by volunteers. Just noticed the error and thought it best to point out, in case someone else hadn't.
--UserAusRPGer 0323, 4 December 2006 (EST)
If the goal is to make this wiki a reference based compilation, it might help to have a more robust reference system in place. I'd recommend installing http//meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cite.php Cite.php, which is used at Wikipedia and most Wikia wikis. It's pretty straightforward. Cheers, --UserSparqMan 0003, 29 March 2007 (EST)
Could you please add deHauptseite to the bottom of the Main Page? I can't edit it or I'd do it myself D Thanks alot! --UserCornix 0428, 3 January 2008 (EST)
Hello, is this "Sixth World Wiki.png" public domain, gnufdl or which license any way? It is needed for a template that will mark content from Sixth World Wiki, used in the "Shadowrun Wikia" --UserKarel 1152, 15 August 2008 (EDT)

Adam, are there policies on editor contributions that users may be directed to? Some related questions
? Inline vs footnotes etc. Personally I prefer footnotes, but I noticed that the Wikipedia tag does not work here, so cobbled together my own simplistic approach.
? It would allow references to link to them.
I would be willing to work on both, and they could probably be linked together via some sort of template or templates.

==Image upload problem==
When I try to upload an image, I get the following error
"Internal error The upload directory (public) is not writable by the webserver."
I'm guessing that this might be related to the wiki's recent downtime, but was not sure. —UserMJBurrage(User talkMJBurrage•SpecialContributions/MJBurrage) 0047, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
