Recently, I have been assigned the arduous yet eminent task of creating a new timeline index for the forum. I look forward to producing a comprehensive, frequently-updated way for Atlasians to access the grandiose world of election timelines, and hope that this index will serve as a valuable tool for all interested in creating, reading, and analyzing this section of the Atlas.
This timeline index will be categorized using three factors - the date the timeline was most recently updated, the creator of the timeline, and the specific event or group of events covered by the timeline.
1. Date of Most Recent Update - The timeline index is divided into two sections, with one section (the main index) including all timelines updated within the last month and the other section (the archives) including all timelines from earlier dates. The archives will only contain timelines of significant quality and/or length (for example, timelines with only one post will not be archived).
2. Creator of Timeline - Each timeline is separated based off of who has created it. For example, all of the timelines created by Poster X can be found next to each other in the index (with, of course, the only exception being if some of the timelines are included in the archives instead of the main index).
3. Events Covered by Timeline - Each timeline is colored based off of the types of events included within it. Red
timelines cover past events, green
timelines cover present/future events, and blue
timelines are interactive.
Of course, creating a comprehensive and frequently-updated timeline index does require a lot of time
(excuse the pun), so while I expect the main index to be finished very soon, the archives will take a bit of time to complete (going through 137 pages of Election What-Ifs is not an easy task).
If I have accidentally skipped over your timeline and you wish it to become part of the index, please PM me if you would like it to be included. Also, feel free to do so if you have any other questions, comments, or concerns regarding the index or its contents.
