Specific information

  • Ikariam uses "s23" in its URL as the server designation for this world, no matter which community / language version you use.
    • Ikariam:
      • Used the Greek Alphabet  wp as names for the first twenty-four worlds(1 – 24).
      • Used Greek Immortal deities wp as names for twenty-two (22) worlds;  twenty-five through the forty-four and forty-eight (25 – 44 & 48).
      • Used Greek Mortals wp and Mythological Creatures wp as names for three worlds;  forty-five through forty-seven and forty-nine (45 – 47 & 49).
  • Ikariam used/uses a few specialty servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (Closed) (not used often / reset after each session) - Special servers for when they need to test changes that occur at higher levels of the game and it would take too long at normal speed to reach them.  These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
    • "Test servers {[ 1  /  2  (Closed) /  3  (Internal use #1) /  4  (Internal use #2) /  5  (Internal use #3) /  6  (Internal use #4)]}," - Special servers for testing the beta wp patches before they go out to the live servers.
    • "War servers [ 1  (Closed - Rounds #1 – #7) (reset after each round - 1 per language group) / 2  (Permanent Round #8 - Open in most communities until 2028)]" - Special servers that run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules when compared to normal game servers.

Statistical information

  • The Active Psi world makes up:
    • 2.0408 % of the 49 named worlds, excluding the specialty (Speed, Test and War) servers.
    • 4.1667 % of the 24 named (used) Greek alphabet servers.
  • Psi is active in 11 communities.
    • PsiC (s23c) was closed in 0 communities.
    • PsiE (s23e) was merged in 6 communities.
  • This means that there would be a total of 17 PsiT (s23t) world servers if none were Closed nor Merged.
    • The active worlds represent:
      • 34.375 % of the 32 grand-total number of communities.
      • 4.8246 % of the 228 total Greek alphabet servers.
      • 2.5346 % of the 434 player accessible servers, excluding the specialty (Speed, Test and War) servers.
      • 2.3504 % of the 468 total player accessible servers.
      • 2.3305 % of the 472 grand total number of all of the world servers.
    • Each Active individual community that has the Psi server is 9.0909 % of the group of 11 .

    General information

    Psi (uppercase Ψ, lowercase ψ) is the 23rd letter of the modern Greek alphabet and has a numeric value of 700. In both Classical and Modern Greek, the letter indicates the combination /ps/ (like in English "lapse"). In Greek, this consonant cluster can occur in the syllable initial position, as in the Greek word "ψάρι" [psári (=fish)]. However, in some languages (including English) this combination is not possible at the beginning of a syllable. In Latin, Greek words beginning with psi are transcribed by ps-, but seem to have been pronounced simply as s-, with a quiescent p. This pronunciation has affected that of Greek loanwords beginning with the letter in several languages. In English, for example, psychology is pronounced with a silent p, and the name of the letter is often pronounced [saɪ] ("sigh"), although this is not always the case. Any person who has learned Greek is aware that the correct pronunciation is actually "see". The letter was adopted into the Old Italic alphabet, and its shape is continued into the Algiz rune of the Elder Futhark.

    The letter may have originated from the practice of writing the sigma over the pi, eventually making the combination into a single letter.[citation needed] Psi was also adopted into the early Cyrillic alphabet. See psi (Cyrillic) (Ѱ, ѱ). This may have also been since the letter, both in lower case and uppercase form, resembles the trident wielded by Poseidon, the Greek god of water/ocean.

    The letter psi is commonly used in physics for representing a wavefunction in quantum mechanics, particularly with the Schrödinger equation and bra-ket notation: . It is also used to represent the (generalized) positional states of a qubit in a quantum computer.
