Under contruction icon-red The following page is under construction.

Please do not edit or alter this article in any way while this template is active. All unauthorized edits may be reverted on the admin's discretion. Propose any changes to the talk page.

These are the editorial guidelines for the Hitlerland community timeline. Please familiarize yourself with these rules before editing this timeline. Because of the vast universe that Hitlerland takes place in, it is important to maintain continuity and article quality by using a simple editorial guidelines system.

Plausibility

Since Hitlerland is an ASB sandbox experiment, there are several instances of ASB and implausible actions that are allowed. Despite this there are still some general guidelines in regards to this.

  • Regardless of ASB, actions that happen should be physically possible, and related people should be capable of actually fulfilling said actions. For example, you may not have the entire world conquered by someone overnight, and say that this allowed since the timeline is ASB.
  • Do not go overboard, and make sure there is still room for others to be creative and build off your ideas. Don't make a wank for the sake of a wank. Wanks are allowed, but only good ones.

Canon

Once an article is approved by the community, it is noted as canon. All pages that have no major continuity issues are elevated to this status. Canon means that the article in question is an accepted part of the Hitlerland lore. It is deemed appropriate, and fits nicely into the Hitlerland universe. Once an article is canon, proposals must follow its already established lore, not the other way around. If a proposal does not have any objections then it is graduated.

For further understanding of the idea of canon, proposals, and probability read QSS and QAA. It is also recommended that you familiarize yourself with the timeline so you have an idea for the current canon.

Proposals

Hitler This Hitlerland page is a Proposal.

It has not been ratified and is therefore not yet a part of the Hitlerland Timeline. You are welcome to correct errors and/or comment at the Talk Page. If you add this label to an article, please do not forget to make mention of it on the Main Discussion page for the Timeline.


When you create something new, it should be tagged as a proposal. This is done by adding {{HitlerProp}} to the top of the page. This adds the article to Category:Proposals (Hitlerland). It is also helpful to add a note about your new page to the bottom of list of proposals on the talk page.

Tagging the page as a proposal indicates that the entire group has not yet had a chance to discuss, debate, and possibly recommend changes to it. If you feel your article is ready to be recognized as canon, then say so on talk page. If nobody raises any objections to your page, you can remove the Proposal tag after a certain amount of time. After this your article will officially be considered "graduated" and a part of the Hitlerland canon.

Important note: the fact that a page or idea has been accepted/graduated does NOT mean that it is "finished". All of Hitlerland's pages are undergoing constant updates and expansion. The graduation process simply means that what has been written, the essential or fundamental elements of the idea, are part of the timeline's canon.

Obsolete

Hitler This Hitlerland page is Obsolete.

Events in this article are no longer part of the Hitlerland timeline, but the page has been saved for reference purposes. You can comment on this page's talkpage.


Not all articles are graduated into canon, as some might violate or contradict already established canon, or might not be plausible enough to be a part of this timeline. If the original writer or no other contributor is willing to revise the article to an acceptable standard then it is marked as obsolete. This means that the events on this page are not canon, but the page itself is saved for reference, or for someone to adopt and later revise. Once a timeline is marked as obsolete the {{HitlerObso}} template is added to the page, and all references to the article in the timeline at large are removed. If a user wishes to adopt the article and continue work on it, all they have to do is change the article back to a proposal and continue editing.
