Timeline Classification Project

Usage and Editing Guide

This is a little “pseudo-database” for timelines and discussion threads in the forum. Its purpose is to help orient oneself of what has been already discussed and considered given a certain time. Hopefully, it will thrive and grow from now on. You are heartily welcome to cotribute!

  • What goes here?
    • Timelines, timeline sketches, and discussions can be included here. Do not include discussions with extremely uncertain time and/or location assignment (e.g. “How can insects become a standard food in Europe?” or “What is the most plausible time for France to become Muslim?”). This also refers to all double and multiple-blind What-Ifs and roleplays.
    • A discussion linked here should have at least one reply.
    • If these criteria are met, positive selection is arbitrary ;). I. e. if you have time to add one more line, just take your pick.
  • How to insert new items:
    • Please sort it into the existing list according to the PoD date. This refers to the actual, “visible” PoD (see below).
    • Do not include too much information. This is only an index.
  • Description of the table columns
    • Type: TL - Timeline, WI - what-If discussion (“What if the PoD had happened?”), How - How-discussion (“How can we achieve that Andorra becomes a great power by 1960?”). Try to find the most suitable of these three; if it is not possible at all, insert “D” (Discussion).
    • PoD (Year or Date): specify as excactly as possible. After this column the table should be sorted.
    • (effective) PoD: What has first happened other than in actual history? Please keep it short, try to give an informative hint in a few words. Also, if the PoD is some personal issue with at first little consequences, you may change it to the first diverging major historical event.
    • Effects: Additional, major developments contrasting OTL.
    • Author/Key Contributors: The author of a timeline, the author of the starting post of a discussion; for a discussion several names are possible, you can include single posters with especially comprehensive and informative contributions. But please keep the list short. If you want, link the people to their respective wiki pages.
    • thread link: self-explanatory. May contain several links if there are multiple discussion threads for a single timeline.
    • wiki link: If a timeline has material here on the wiki.
