Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

I already known how to create and add infoboxes to this site now. However, I wanna know to link my previous posts so they can be easier to get to. I mean, I want to link my Thomas infobox post on my Skarloey infobox post to basically serve as a guide to I have done so far.

I already know how to copy and past URLs (that part is easy), I just down want to link the entire page and just a section. Could someone please help me with that?
To link directly to a post, you first need to right click on either the time of the post (in the upper left) or on the post number (in the upper right) in order to copy the link address. Then, you click on the insert link icon (or press Ctrl+K) above the post textbox where you type your posts, and paste the link into the section labelled URL, while you write whatever text you want in the section labelled Text.

The fourth and fifth Presidents of the United States in Forgotten No More:

Clinton, George.png

George Clinton was the first President not aligned with the Federalist Party and there were major concerns revolving the transition of power from Henry Lee III, especially because his predecessor actively sought re-election. Despite these concerns, Henry Lee III gave up the office and civil conflict was averted. Clinton was the first President of the Republican Party and sought to ease the centralist push the Federalist Party had pushed on the states. Nonetheless, his term was largely uneventful and he was replaced by a Federalist four years later...

Lee, Charles.png

After a short, four year absence, Charles Lee won the 1804 election and brought the Federalists back to the head of executive branch. Lee had served as the nation's Attorney General and had a (minor) stint in Congress as a Senator. Under Charles, the U.S. signed the Second Marshall Treaty acquiring Florida from Spain. The only other issue of note during his Presidency was the beginning of a major road and canal network across the country, funded federally, known as the National Road. He rather passively sought re-nomination from his party, but leadership opted for his brother and former President who had a stronger national character. Charles gave up the nomination to his brother Henry Lee III, a rather odd move that led to the only instance of a family member replacing another family member.
 
People have been making really cool Avatar and Star Wars infoboxes so I made one for a modern version of Botw. King Rhoam XVI Bosphoramus and his daughter Princess Zelda the heir to the throne. I might make one for Link and the kingdom of Hyrule as well.

The House of Mannerheim-Romanov
Are the Mannerheims still Finland Swedes? If so how does the public feel about that? Finland Swedes in the real world are often victims of harassment because of their language, being seen by many as upper class, pseudo colonising, oppressors (which is obviously ridiculous). Combining that stereotype with being a literal monarch might make things even worse.

Well yes there is a bit of controversy but when the founder of the dynasty throws the Russians and Swedes out of Finland the people have a very good view of the House of Mannerheim though the marriage to the House of Romanov is controversial.

Just to make sure I understand you correctly, when you say "throw out the Russians and Swedes" you mean expelling soldiers right?

The Jade Revolution was a popular movement demanding political reform in the Republic of China that took place in the summer of 1989. It was part of the global movement of protests and revolutions known as the Summer of Democracy. Dissatisfaction with the Kuomintang regime in China had existed for decades prior to the revolution, starting with the victory of the KMT in the Chinese Civil War. The brutal repression of the defeated communists extended to other dissenters. Under the long presidency of Chiang Kai-shek, democracy and political freedoms were suppressed. His son and sucessor Chiang Ching-kuo introduced minor reforms in order to stabilize his presidency, but did not do much in the long term. The rule of the Kuomintang persisted primarily due to the strong internal control of the two Chiangs. However, with the passing of the younger Chiang and succession of President Lee Huan, the KMT began to fracture. Although Lee had been known as a reformer before his rise to power, his attempts to regain control of the party led to the reintroduction of political restrictions and the increased power of the Bureau of Investigation and Statistics, essentially operating as a secret police.

Political activity among students was heavily monitored and restricted, especially since many students tended to drift towards the outlawed Communist Party. Others were adherents of liberal democracy and sought to introduce such liberalism to China. BIS agents frequently used to play rival students groups against each other, encouraging them to report members of the other groups. BIS agents also used to infiltrate student organizations to sow dissent and gather information. By the 1980s, the third generation of student leaders had emerged, and wise to the tactics of the BIS, operated in extreme secrecy. There was also strong anti-party sentiment in other segments of the population. Urban workers increasingly became anti-KMT due to poor wages and working conditions, and local chapters of unions became hotbeds of radical activity, even though union leadership was typically stocked with high ranking party members. The general public also began to chafe under KMT rule, as the BIS acted with impunity, frequently "disappearing" intellectuals and academics who criticized the party. Urban police were also highly corrupt, beholden to the ruthless criminal triads which terrorized the populace.

The precipitating incident of the Jade Revolution was the arrest of student leader Zheng Xing, who had been working with other student leaders across the nation to plan a coordinated day of civil disobedience. Although students were regularly arrested by police, Zheng was handed over to the BIS without charge and died after a week in custody. The BIS was accused of torturing him to death, while the BIS insisted that he had been grievously ill before his arrest and that his death was of natural causes. After his body was not returned to his family, students began protests of remembrance in many cities, the earliest being the Beijing protest of 16 June. These peaceful protests were attacked by local police forces, which led to the protests growing in number and spreading across China. On 22 June, President Lee ordered the BIS to begin arresting any individuals who were committing "treasonous activities" or were suspected of being Soviet agents. One week later, he announced a national state of emergency and ordered the military into the streets of the major cities to enforce martial law.

Protesting continued through the month of July as a nationwide strike began on 2 July. People began fighting the police in the streets, with American observers stating that the country had fallen into "a state of complete disorder and anarchy." By late July, Lee began withdrawing military forces from other cities and recalled them to Beijing. On 3 August, protesters responded with the March of One Million Men, when approximately 1.8 million people from Beijing and other parts of China marched on and surrounded the Forbidden City. By this point, President Lee was facing immense internal and international pressure to give in to the protesters and resign. The following day, Lee ordered the military to stand down and announced his resignation. In the following week, his successor Lien Chan announced constitutional reforms, the disbandment of the BIS, the legalization of opposition parties, and free elections to the Legislative Yuan to be held within 10 months. The formal end date of the revolution is 24 August, when Lien granted the Five Freedoms Guarantee of freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of movement, freedom of the press, and free and fair elections.

In the elections of 1990, the KMT was swept away, with the Democratic National Party emerging as the largest in the Legislative Yuan. The KMT did not return to government for another 26 years.

Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin (1931 – 2009) was a Soviet politician. Previously a member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, in 1990 Yeltsin founded the first opposition party in the Soviet Union, the Union Party, and led the party to winning seats in the 1990 elections. As the leader of the second largest party in the Duma, Yeltsin became Leader of the Opposition. He held this position from 1990 to 2001 with a brief gap in 1996. After the collapse of the Union Party in the 2001 elections, Yeltsin retired as leader of the party and from the Duma. Facing charges of corruption and other financial crimes, Yeltsin fled the Soviet Union and ended up in France, where he died in 2009.

Born in Sverdlovsk Oblast, Yeltsin grew up in Kazan, Tatar ASSR. In 1950, Yeltsin joined the Red Army, commanded by Marshal Georgy Zhukov, and fought during the Soviet Civil War against the forces of Lavrentiy Beria, his NKVD, and the Soviet Patriotic Army which he commanded. Yeltsin's service ended with the conclusion of the war. After the war, Yeltsin attended Ural Polytechnical Institute. He joined the Communist Party in 1960. He continued to rise in the ranks from there. In the 1980s, he was elected to the Politburo, where he was known to be a part of Gorbachev's reformist faction, although he and Gorbachev did not particularly get along. Yeltsin primarily benefited from his close relationship with Chairman Kim's brother and right hand man Shura Kim. Yeltsin was a signatory of the 1985 constitution. As Deputy Secretary Gorbachev became closer to the Chairman and urged him to push more reforms, Gorbachev also tried to have Yeltsin removed from the Politburo. This did not occur, but it marked the break between Gorbachev and Yeltsin. Although Yeltsin was still a reformist, he began aligning himself with the hardliners because he believed he could out-maneuver them after they removed Kim and Gorbachev.

Yeltsin was part of the planning of the Coup of 16 November 1987. However, Yeltsin drank heavily the night before the coup, and in the morning he failed in his task to arrest and secure Shura Kim at his personal residence. Instead, Yeltsin drunkenly made his way to the Kremlin, where he met with President Gorbachev in his office and confessed his complicity in the coup and laid out the details. Gorbachev promised Yeltsin his "eternal friendship" for confessing. Yeltsin helped Gorbachev plan and execute his response to the coup, and invited the help of Shura Kim and the military. Although the coup was foiled, Yeltsin inadvertently weakened Gorbachev's position by inviting the military back to power.

Yeltsin served in the ministry of Prime Minister Kim as Infrastructure Minister. Yeltsin found Kim's reforms to be unsatisfactory, and after opposition parties were allowed to stand in the 1990 elections, Yeltsin formed the Union Party, consisting of other disaffected reformists. Unlike other opposition parties, the Union Party supported the continued existence of the Soviet Union and was thus approved by the electoral board. As a result, many members of banned parties joined the Union Party. This expanded coalition vaulted the Union Party to second place status following the elections. However, Yeltsin proved an ineffective leader of his party, unable to balance the varied interests within it. The party continued to exist solely because other options were limited and because no one else was willing to wrangle its members. After a health scare, Yeltsin abruptly announced his retirement in 1996 and handed off leadership to his deputy. In reality, he intended to demonstrate that no one could lead the party or even win a leadership election, and he was right. Three months later he resumed leadership.

Yeltsin's time as a prominent leader came to an end with the Pink Revolution and the 2001 constitution. All opposition was now legalized and the Union Party collapsed. The many factions split away to form their own parties. Yeltsin retired permanently after the elections and disappeared from the political scene. In 2005, the federal police investigated him for corruption as Kim tried to defame past opposition leaders in the run up to the 2005 elections. Yeltsin decided to flee the country, traveling to France with the intention of moving on to the United States. However, he ended up settling in France where he died in 2009.

The 1813 American federal election was held in May and June of 1813 to elect representatives to the 5th American Parliament. It was held from Monday, 3 May to Tuesday, 8 June 1813. The Whigs, led by James Monroe, expanded their majority, gaining 18 seats. The minority government led by Tory leader Aaron Burr lost seats. Burr subsequently resigned and Governor General Lord Howe invited Monroe to form a government.

From America's independence in 1798 to the resignation of the Duke of Boston in 1812, America was governed by the Ministry of All the Talents, a national unity government led by the Duke of Boston, the Whig leader and Aaron Burr, the Tory leader. Despite the frequent disagreements between Whig and Tory members of the cabinet, the authority of the revered Duke of Boston, the founding father of America, held the cabinet together and members of the cabinet downplayed partisan affiliation, with the goal of national unity. The fourteen years of Lord Boston's premiership are known as the Era of Good Feelings.

Despite the apparent unity of the cabinet, Aaron Burr and the
Tories waited for an opportunity to govern alone. The Duke of Boston resigned on 30 October 1812 and advised Lord Howe that Burr should form a government. Burr, the long-term President of the Privy Council, seemed the natural successor to Boston. Burr was widely expected to maintain the Ministry of All the Talents. However, Burr decided to seize the opportunity to form a Tory government, believing that forming a stable coalition government would be impossible due to the disagreements between the Tories and the Whigs. Burr formed a minority government, which was short of a majority in the House of Representatives by 25 seats. However, Burr believed that the Whigs would not dare to bring his government down.

On 19 April 1813, Lord Howe openeed the third session of the 5th American Parliament. A loyal adress was presented, however, after several days of debating it became clear that many
Whigs would vote against it. Burr subsequently withdrew the motion and asked Howe to dissolve Parliament. Parliament was dissolved on 22 April. The writs of election were issued on 26 April.

Burr hoped that the
Tories would obtain a majority. Instead they lost 18 seats. James Monroe subsequently formed a Whig majority government. The Tories would not return to power until 1830.
 

James Bartholomew Olsen, better known as "Jimmy" Olsen, was a Delaware photographer, journalist, and investigative reporter. In his youth he was well known for his friendship with Metropolis' premier hero, Superman, and throughout his life he was known for his reporting both on citywide events, and superheroic undertakings throughout the state, county, planet, and at times universe.

Orphaned at the age 3, he spent years living with relatives and grew up in Depression-era Metropolis. As a teenager he was hired as an office-boy by Perry White, Sr. for the Daily Planet, where he would eventually work his way up as a photographer and reporter. There he would eventually meet Superman, being one of the first reporters able to interview the hero. In 1949, Olsen was the one who gave the famous interview where Superman detailed his history as an alien named Kal-El, rocketed to Earth as a baby from a dying planet named Krypton, and how he became a superhero.

At the age of 25, he was kidnapped by Edward Clariss, the original Reverse-Flash and a member of the inaugural Secret Society of Super-Villains. Due to Olsen's known connection to Superman, his kidnapping was done as part of an elaborate scheme to simultaneously gather and murder multiple American superheroes. Due to the interference of Mr. Mind, another member of the Secret Society, Clariss was sent running into the "Speedforce" with Olsen in tow, both of whom were sent hurdling ten years into the future. In the intervening years, Olsen was presumed dead by many despite the claims by Superman and the original Flash, Jay Garrick, that he was alive but "lost" in the "Speedforce".

In 1962, both Clariss and Olsen emerged, with Olsen claiming to have been unconscious throughout his trip into the "Speedforce". After a year spent readjusting to a world that had progressed a decade without him, Olsen returned to work at the Daily Planet, married teacher Linda Lee Danvers (a cousin of friend and long time fellow Daily Planet reporter, Clark Kent), and resumed life, despite the hardships. Many years later, Olsen would confess to having many emotional and mental turmoils adjusting to the new world, including nervous breakdowns and bouts of alcoholism. He credited his recovery to the support of his friends, and especially his wife Linda.

The last major news story that he broke was that of his 1995 expose of Project Cadmus, which had illegally harvested the DNA of the deceased Superman and clandestinely cloned him, without knowledge or orders from higher-ups. This resulted in international outcry, a widely publicized Congressional investigation, the arrest of all members involved, including Director Amanda Waller, and the discovering Project Cadmus' other attempts to clone superpowered individuals, human and alien.

Olsen died in 2014, with the chronological age of 87, but a biological age of 77. He is survived by his daughter, Karen, and several grandchildren.


I know it's a bit ironic to take Jimmy out of most of the 1950's, where he had many of his most (in)famous Silver Age stories, but I wanted to do something a little bit different. Worldbuild further, develop some internal ideas (such as ITTL's initial SSSV, him ending up with Supergirl who also was displaced...in a way, allude to how Conner Kent ended up being created etc.), and so forth. Tell me what you think.
 
Would be interested in seeing your take on Alan Scott. Would be very easy to take elements from his old (engineer and later media owner, forced out of superheroing by the House Un-American Activities Committee) and new continuity (closeted queer man and among the first public superheroes) to blend with real history.

Funny enough, on SLP we were just talking about him for a second. I do have a fair bit written about Alan Scott, nothing yet put into wikibox form, but I know where he fits into this universe.

I dunno how I feel about that retcon. Like, 80 years after he was first published and they're revising something that big about his character (not counting the earlier post-Flashpoint Earth Two incarnation of him who was also gay because his gay son was retconned out of existence). I know pretty much every comic book character was written and coded straight back then, but it feels like an odd change, one I don't know if I'll keep in my thing. Maybe allude to it, with in-universe speculation, maybe not.
 
The seventh President of the United States in Forgotten No More:
Eustis, William.png


William Eustis was a member of the moderate, Whig faction of the Republican Party, and won the nomination as a unifying figure who was somewhat in support of the war effort (Henry Lee III had led the US into war with Great Britain and Spain in the last year of his presidency). The 1812 Election went to Congress after both the Republicans and Federalists saw splinter tickets that garnered significant support and though the Federalists controlled the House, Eustis' supporters joined in coalition with New England Federalists to give Eustis the presidency, a sour rejection of Federalist President Henry Lee III. Eustis would go on to lead the nation through what has come to be called the War of American Liberation. The war resulted in the US' acquisition of most of Britain's remaining North American colonies east of the Mississippi, including what would later become the states of Superior, Huron, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Not entirely an expansionist, however, Eustis also stood firm in his support for the independence of Canada and Louisiane, the former's long-established French community having risen up against Britain during the war and the latter's newer, revolutionary-minded French populace having sought to bring the French Revolution along with their exile. The war, a stunning victory for the United States, also secured the recognition of many of Spain's rebellious colonies as independent nations. Eustis would also be the first President to win consecutive terms of office, being re-elected in 1816. He consistently ranks among the top 3 Presidents in US history in most reputable rankings and is an entrenched, almost mythological figure within the American civic religion. Across the Americas he is also venerated with streets and monuments dedicated to him in places like Nouvelle-Orleans and Mexico City, for his work securing the independence of various countries. Eustis oversaw the re-chartering of the National Bank, the expansion of road and canal networks, and the establishment of the US as the economic powerhouse of the Americas following the war. He is also known as one of the fiercest supporters of electoral reform in the Senate becoming a public advocate for a Constitutional Amendment that would make Senate seats popularly elected across the country, though this effort did not come to pass under his tenure. A face of liberty, Eustis' final act as President and one celebrated to this day was his rejection of American provocateur's in 1820 when a group of U.S. citizens crossed into Louisiane's territory and attempted to start a rebellion with the aim of being annexed into the US. Eustis rejected the group and offered Louisiane support in quashing the efforts of the separatists.

His 1816 re-election is considered the first landslide after Federalist nominee Harrison Otis' campaign was tarnished by the publication of the Otis Letters - a series of writings by the Federalist during the first year of the War of American Liberation calling for New England to secede from the Union.

Fair enough. I liked it because it added a bit more depth to an often overlooked character, but to each his own and won’t bully you about it. You could include a line along the lines of HUAC using rumours about “improprieties” in his personal life to attack him and leave it at that

TARZAN THE UNTAMED
The rise of Michael Heseltine
Michael-Heseltine-04-GQ-1Nov16_rex_b.jpg

CHARACTERS:
- Margaret Thatcher, Leader of the Conservative Party since 1975 and Prime Minister since 1979.
- Neil Kinnock, Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition since 1983.
- John Prescott, Shadow Transport Secretary in Neil Kinnock's shadow cabinet
- Michael Heseltine, backbencher and former member of Thatcher's cabinet


CHAPTER 1:
On a sunny day in April 1991, Queen Elizabeth II received in audience Margaret Thatcher. The prime minister asked the monarch to dissolve parliament. Thatcher had anticipated a new election for years. The long-term prime minister and leader of the Conservative party was plagued by attacks from party members, who were fed up with her authoritarian leadership. Perhaps the most prominent opponent of Maggie Thatcher was Michael Heseltine, the former Defence Secretary who resigned from her cabinet in 1986. Thatcher easily faced off a challenge to hear leadership in 1989. The followig year, Thatcher's deputy, Geoffrey Howe, considered resigning in protest to the prime minister's attitude towards the European Community, but did not do so. Heseltine considered challenging Thatcher, and waited for a senior cabinet member to resign. However, Heseltine decided against challenging her when no senior cabinet member resigned. Thatcher's popularity received a boost in the wake of the Gulf War, which saw allied forces liberating Kuwait. Convinced that voters would reject Labour and re-elect the Conservative government, Thatcher called an election for June. Polls indicated a narrow, but consistent Labour lead. The socialists campaigned against the unpopular poll tax and the growing inequality. Thatcher remained committed to the poll tax, and believed that voters would agree with her. However, on election night it became clear that Labour would be the largest party in the new parliament, but possibly without an overall majority. The Tories were heavily defeated and lost 95 seats. Labour won an overall majority of just two seats, and Queen Elizabeth II invited Labour leader Neil Kinnock to form a new government. Thatcher resigned as leader of the Conservative Party. Many Conservatives openly blamed the long-term party leader for their party's defeat, and her leading opponent, Michael Heseltine, quickly became a front-runner in the subsequent leadership election.

or
I want to die on that big red ball in the sky

This marks a new step for the human race. Almost 50 years ago my father dared to rekindle humanities old dream: of reaching out to the skies. Today, 24 men and women stand on the surface of Mars. A new planet for humanity. A new future. A New Hope. And ladies and gentlemen, they're there to stay. May Earth and the New Hope Base form today a bond that will unite humanity through the cosmos, a bond that can never be broken!
-X Æ A-12 Musk speech following the first successful transmission from the New Hope Base.
1597176890741.png

It is time to break our bonds with Earth. Present times have proven to us that we can survive as more than a collection of semi-independent colonies or financial operations. We are a planet. We're united by adversity, by our pursuit of civilization and life upon the wild and the barren. Our planet has been cut off from Earth for seven months now, and yet we've pulled through, thanks to newfound cooperation. I say we will succeed where the nations of Earth failed. We will create an united planet. A Union of Martians. Subject to no other power, forever more!
- Speech by Alin3R Musk, preceeding the Martian Constitutional Convention.
