I made this today. Go ahead and use it if you want. Or don't.

I am desperately trying to re-learn all the Wiki stuff. So don't be too harsh about templates missing etc. Is anyone here a good wiki admin?

I've put in what I think the bones of a structure would be, anybody care to comment? Not a wikipedian, just trying to get a handle on the likely required structure (obviously can't quite follow proper Wiki structure due to the almost-certain clashes between various AUs, but this so far is my best guess at it)

Hi all,

A though on consistency ... one problem I suspect we'll run into fairly soon, with multiple AUs on the wiki, is how to manage the differing versions of, say, the Battle of Midway.

As a provisional suggestion, I'd like to offer this: For event E specific to an Alternate Universe AUa, we'd create a page AUa.E - for instance, "Denton AU.Invasion of the Falkland Islands" - though it should be noted that "Denton AU" is a placeholder until the parties in the AU can agree a better name.

Your thoughts?

Makes a lot of sense. This format looks familiar, and would help sorting articles per AU first and prevent mix-ups.
Great care would have to be given to the consistency of the AU naming across articles.

Battle of Midway (Denton AU)

Categorize it as [[Category:Denton AU]] or whatever it is.

Problem solved.

Yeah, I wasn't anticipating the extent to which we'd go all-in on the categories as that point, which kinda sidesteps around any namespace concerns.

Articles need to be categorized if just to make finding them easier. There shouldn't be pages that don't have a category.

Very impressive effort Colosseum! :)
Btw. just out of curiosity: is there any possibility to put on the main page some (link to) list of the included AU's? I think that it could be perhaps useful.

Hi Eswube,

There's actually already links on the main page to the alternate universes and to the individual AU nations.

Edit: This was a late-night brainfart. You're not talking about the wiki main page at all, are you?

@Apdsmith
Actually I was. :oops:
In that case I'll rephrase my question: could it be made more prominent and more "stand out"?
