Hello Citizens of eIreland,
Some of the older players from eIreland and abroad will see the title and think I saw this before and they will be right, this is the second release of the eIreland.me system. I first released this site over a year and a half ago...original article - eIreland Progressing Nicely
Over the past few months I have been working on the Info Centre among other things and believe its ready for the second release, the last one I made had miles less available options site wise than the new one has.
The reason this took so long to do was that I had to come up with huge lists of information, documents, images and stats that will need to be placed on the site. One of the other issues was that at times when I thought I was finished some of the information like tutorials would be outdated and new ones thus needed to be sourced, thankfully that in eIreland and around the globe there is no lack of quality tutorials that players spend a lot of time working on for the benefit of others.
Like the last one at times I have been putting in 8-12 hour shifts to try get it done, which at times made me consider whether over the long term would it be worth having but since I have been paying for it for so long it would be stupid not to. Also the benefit long term for new players and the likes of Ambassadors looking for information on eIreland.
Whats on the Info Centre
Currently we have a lot more information currently on the site than previously and it will only get bigger, below is some of the information.
About - Information on the country, taxes, MPP's, Economy, Geography etc.
Parties - I have every party in the country listed with links to the likes of their forums, wiki pages and in game page.
MU's - Near every MU is listed here with information about them, forum, wiki and page links. Also given is the command listings like Commanders, 2nd Commanders and Captains all listed with direct links to all profiles.
Media - Here lists the important newspapers like the CP and his/her cabinet along with other top writers like Irasian for his guides and John Gormley for the daily jokes.
Tutorials - These are the main reason for the website, currently I have all of Irasians tutorials on the site along with one from Sean Power and some from Ian E Coleman. More will be added soon but can only do a certain amount a day.
Built-In Chat - When Seanan showed me his idea of the IA chat on their site on Monday I think it was, I said why can't we have the same on the site but linking to #Ireland. After a bit of work we got it along with instructions on how to use it for new players.
So What Now?
The website has been completed thanks to the help from Ian E Coleman, so its time for release to the public. Most would have seen the shouts and links on articles from the likes of Ian's latest article - MoE Library & Info Centre, this is the first article I am releasing about it.
With the ever changing game and country this will be a never ending job updating this site and I ask if anyone wishes to help with this please contact myself, it doesn't need to be updating the site itself. It can be linking me to good articles you think should be on it, making banners or logos that would be good for the site and near anything game and eIreland related that you can think of.
The domain and hosting are renewed till next Christmas so it may aswell be used for the reason I first though of the idea...and I said in the footer of the site "Created by Marcus Suridius for the Irish community".
Its for the community so I hope to see it being used, while passing it around to the international channels the feed back on it has been excellent and many nations have said how they would love to have something like this. Some nations have other sites for their country but when I first did this it was a first in the game and got other countries thinking of how they will help their nations in the future so we can say...eIreland came up with the idea for dedicated sites that you see around today.

Have a look, see what you think. When using the site keep an eye out for anything you think it can do with having or any problems or mistakes you have seen and you can PM me and ill get straight on it.
When you use it, you will see for some MU's and Parties they are missing information or banners. This is due to myself not being able to find any, I pm'ed all PP's and MU commanders a while ago asking for the information needed but some haven't so this is why some information is missing.
As a final not I want to thank Ian E Coleman for the work he has put in with myself to get the site live, he has been a great help with banners and articles and wanted to thank him.
Thanks for reading Ireland and hope you like the site as much as I do,
