[edit] Overview

The TWC Wiki is intended to form a comprehensive evolving reference about the Total War series of games. It can include any subject relating to the whole TW Community, the series of games, the people, mods and modding. Other topics can also be included for instance articles on history, geography and archaeology which might be useful in modding or understanding the games. Articles relating to useful software, links to other useful sites and reference material would also be suitable.

Detailed information is also given about the TWC forums.

Anyone (with an account) can edit existing pages on the TWC Wiki, add new pages and add or amend categories. The success of the Wiki depends on as many people as possible lending a hand to add content and refine the existing articles.

[edit] Editing Advice

Unlike Wikipedia, or other Wiki's, users without an account cannot edit pages. Users must be logged in in order to edit pages. You can create an account on the Wiki very easily with just a user-name and password. You don't have to use the same username as used on the forums but it is helpful. If you have a TWC forum account, the name doesn't contain invalid characters, and you have not yet created a wiki account, you can log in using your forum account. This will automatically create a wiki account, which will be separate from your TWC account thereafter.

For an on forum guide to editing the Wiki see here, questions may also be asked in that thread.

See also the Wikimedia Editing help link in the left hand side bar.

If you are stuck with a specific problem and want to ask other users please use the Help Desk.

[edit] Policy Explanation and Discussion Areas

For general policy and design discussion use the Pub.

For policy advice and discussion related to individual project areas see Project Pages.

[edit] Sysops and Bureaucrats

Bureaucrats can promote and demote users (including other bureaucrats). Sysops (a.k.a. wiki admins) can edit protected pages, block users, protect and unprotect pages, delete and undelete pages, and other things in that vein-this is usually reserved for members of the TWC Wiki Team. The Wiki Editor, admins, and senior moderators are usually bureaucrats. Everything is extensively logged and easily reversible, so abuse of privileges isn't likely to pose a serious problem.
