    Guess who...

    The general policy is that if you write at least a semi-succesful, multi-installment timeline or story, you should get a page because you've already contributed something to the board.

    I've checked and... oddly, you didn't have one, though you were mentioned on the page of DaD... :confused:

    Fixed it for you, our feline friend. ;)

    Do TLs have to be finished before you get a Wiki article?

    I have an article, but I made it myself, so it's about 99% lies. Feel free to correct any of them IF YOU DARE.

    Not at all. Many TLs are worked on for years before they're 100 % finished and they still get to be included (either listed on the author's page or the Stories or Timelines and Scenarios sections). If you think a TL is extensive enough and could grab the interest of others, add it to the wiki.

    My recent narrative about different native monarchies on the Hawaiian islands is in the "Early Modern AH" part of Timelines and Scenarios, even though it's short and I'm planning a much thorough remake in the future. There were few timelines listed in that section when compared to the other ones and Polynesian TLs are rare on the board, so I just thought : "Why not ? It would add a little variety in terms of theme and place..."

    So have you made practically everyone's wiki page?

    Be honest, did you make your own?;)

    Not at all, but I made a lot of basic profiles for members who still didn't have any, despite having written several (mostly very neat) TLs.

    I did. It's not a crime. Don't be affraid to make your own profile, if you want to. No one will be looking over your shoulder, it's your personal decision.

    A personal wiki article is totally overrated. ;)

    Admit it: You're dying inside for one, but are too humble to make it yourself.;)

    Petike, cheer up this poor soul and do your thing!

    I'm a humble Caretaker of the Wiki at best. Insistent terminology, right there. ;)

    Be my guest :

    You've been here long enough and contributed quite a bit (flags, the TACOS scheme, etc.), so I think a personal page is certainly deserved. Frankly, I'm surprised you still didn't have any. Feel free to edit it as you like if you want to add more info about your works and so on...

    I generally figure my TL ought to have a page before I do, and it's not nearly notable or complete enough yet to merit one.
