    Going to do a couple of OPM country guides this morning.

    Just a general question, but once an article is posted how are you going to prevent 'random-internet-sweaty-dude' from coming along and editing or even deleting it all?

    King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.
    Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    also anyone who knows good mods should put links to them on the mod list page
    Look for this code on the source code of the page : {{Version|1.3}}

    I have explained how the versioning works as follow :

    If you were to write an article for the current (2.31) version of A House Divided, you should use this small code if it works for the Base game (1.3) :

    {{Version|1.3|2.31}}

    But if your strategy/article tested on A House Divided (2.31) isn't working for the Base game (1.3), you would have to use this code :

    {{Version|Unknown|2.31}}
    The page that explains the version compatibly template is here : http://en.victoria2.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Template:Version

    If that happens, couldn't the changes be reverted, like on other Wikis? It will require a bit of vigilance on the part of members, but it's doable, I think.

    Indeed. I first wanted to restrict editing to registered members, but since then I saw a couple of edits done from non members (IP address) that corrected some misspellings, grammar or formatting errors. So I have adopted a wait and see attitude.

    Yes, I would imagine the content authors would get notified of major edits automatically assuming they are subscribed to their own articles.

    You can be notified if some articles you are following are edited : you need to go in your Preference pane once you are registered.

    You can upload images on the Wiki to help visually improve your guide or reference article. If you do, don't forget to categorize the image by using this simple code : [[Category:Image]] in the description of the image. That way, we will have an index of all the game-related images on the Wiki.

    I have finished writing the National strategy guide for the Netherlands, following the numerous playthrough I have done with this country.

    http://en.victoria2.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Netherlands

    Although far from perfect, I think it can be used - for now - as a good model for writing guides in a non personal fashion following the Guidelines I have shamelessly brought over from the Vicky2wiki.

    Using my iPhone today, I also noticed that the Wiki sports ads. I shouldn't have been so surprised though as this Wiki is freely hosted by ShoutWiki. On the other hand, I don't see those ads on my laptop because I have installed Adblock, a plugin for Safari (and Firefox IIRC) that bares your browser from displaying ads. I recommend using this browser plugin if it is made available on other browsers (IE, Opera, Chrome, etc.)

    Last but not least, I want to commend the first crop of fans that have actually created an account on this new Wiki and started work. You guys are great!

    Be careful with not requiring registration for posting things - there's a reason why the old wiki had to do it after all.

    This! and make sure that there are some kind of captcha and email verification. The spambots will go nuts once they find your wiki. Its a Vicky 2 wiki. Not a "where to buy Viagra" wiki.

    I'll admit I have next to no experience with wiki's but the key here seems to be redundancy - in the sense that enough people can administrate the wiki (to change permissions and invite new people) that it should never become an issue if one or several people suddenly fall of the face of the earth.

    For those that do not have any experience with Wiki editing, this Wikipedia page here is good for learning the basics : http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Contents

    I don't know how much time I have, or exactly how skilled I am to make guides, per se, but I would gladly throw in some time and talk about the starting layout/historical positions of the nations.
