Just telling though, but can I hire editors if possible if you're not a staff?
What's on your mind?
Nominations for the 2020 Stirling Awards are open through the end of the month. These awards are (belatedly) being held to recognize the best content that our wiki offered in 2019. Voting will start on October 1.
Hello, I'm Mand'alor the Vault13warrior, Flame of Valhalla and I just discovered the discussions side of this wiki! I've made a few timelines, such as Independent States of America and The Great Southern Fatherland.
I'm thinking about doing a multiverse timeline-basically the timeline diverges from ours sometime in late Middle Ages or early Modern Era, and stays as one timeline until about the late twentieth century, where it splits into a multiverse with several timelines, some where an apocalypse (which varies in severity by which timeline) happens, and some where it does not. For the apocalyptic timelines, I was thinking it could have some Fallout/Mad Max elements.
What do all of you think?
Well team, it looks like the Fandom people have finally replaced our old Forum with the new Discussions. They told us this was coming literally four years ago, and that post explains why the change. I personally find this format much more inviting, and I see some signs that others have the same impression - since the change, people have finally responded to some old posts that were made days or weeks ago. So I see this as a good change.
And of course, we can keep on discussing things on our Discord, as well as on user and article Talk Pages. (Chat also exists for now, but not forever; hardly anyone uses it now, anyway.)
Pretty much what the title says. How do I edit country borders like on this example?
I've googled it several times and found absolutely nothing. At all. Would appreciate help.
Am I allowed to adopt this? If so, can I do it please? A bonus question: Can you name all the franchises by PlayStation that don't exist in Ohga Shrugs?
I've been here for a while (8 years, woah!), off and on. I've decided I would like to start contributing regularly to the wiki.
Now, I've come to this decision before, many times in fact, but I always lost interest. A large reason for this has had to do with creating media to supply my timelines and contributions.
I can't seem to find a good program that allows me to create wiki-quality images, and now that I'm limited to an iPad it's even more frustrating. I've tried GIMP, I've tried SketchBook by Autodesk, I've tired a couple others as well. I'm a visual learner, which helps me construct the worlds I'm envisioning, so it's the biggest stumbling block to being a regular contributor.
What do y'all use? Keep in mind, I'm looking for things that are accessible and have an easy-to-use interface.
a Frenchman who would like to collaborate in 1983 Doomsday, I saw that the article France and what was attached to it lacked a little substance, can I write something or someone already has ideas in mind? Thank you and good day!
I've started to begin brainstorming related to an alternate history where upon Islam does not rise (at least prominently) causing the traditional Bedouin faith to remain longer. The Battle of Mecca is the present POD in this timeline. Without the rise of Islam, and based on my prelimenary research, the Sasanian Empire I think would fragment into several successor states rather then being divided among Islamic conquerors. This would leave a large portion of central Asia Zoroastrian during the middle ages. I speculate that Catholicism and the Coptic Church would become more prominent in Africa.
However, as these are my prelimenary thoughts (and my main area of study is the 20th century leaving me at a bit of a disadvantage) I want to ask for further opinion; "Could Yazdegerd III have fought off the raids of the Göktürks in the east, and Khazars in the west while keeping the Empire together?"
If the answer to that is 'no' then what's the most likely portition of the Empire in such an Alternate history?
Does anyone know how the official aviation identifiers that are located right below the logo can be inserted? I'd do it myself, but it isn't something I'm good at and don't want to make worse... As of now, the one airline in my alternity I've done has the IATA/ICAO/Callsign information in the general text area.
How can I create infobox for newspaper, or how to copy it from classical wikipedia? Is it possible?
Which states best survied doomsday from the worst to the best?
This does NOT inuculde terrtiores.
I'm not part of the official staff, but I would really like to see maps for all continents. Thanks.
Since this year (2019) is the 100th anniversary of Korea's March 1st independence movement, can one of you guys do a English translated version of "In Search of the Epitaph: Keijo, Showa year 62 (비명을 찾아서: 京城, 쇼우와 62년)" (Note: Showa year 62 = AD 1987)? It was Bok Geo-il's very first novel originally relased in March 1987 (And was only released in Korean and Japanese), taking place in an a alternate timeline where An Jung-geun failed to assassinate Ito Hirobumi (As Ito got injured instead of getting shot), which lead to Japan never being a part of WWII, the atomic bomb being dropped in Bremen and Dresden instead of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Japan successfully conquering Taiwan, Korea, Kwantung, Manchukuo, Sakhalin and the Kuril islands. Also half of China was devived ever since The Cold War instead of Korea, with North China becoming Soviet Russia's puppet state known as "The People's Republic of China (中華人民共和国)" (Capital: Beijing) while South China on the other hand became Imperial Japan's puppet state known as "The Republic of China (中華民国)" (Capital: Shanghai). Also the British Raj and French Indochina were never devived during The Cold War.

I liked King of America but i think it might be more interesting if we find another monarch.
George, Prince Regent - Heir to the British throne, wouldn't give the right up to rule some weak kingdom in the New World.
William, Duke of Clarence - Similar to George, but slightly more likely because he is not heir to the throne, but there FIGHTING against the British, so i don't think they would put in a british Prince.
Louis XVIII of France - Possible, france was American ally, grandson of Louis XV (King at the time)
Ferdinand, Duke of Parma - Unlikely, step-grandson of Louis XV.
George Washington - Liked by the people and is American but i am not sure he would accept.
