Welcome to Project WSS brought to you by Kronoskaf the virtual time machine!

Project WSS is a knowledge base exclusively dedicated to the War of the Spanish Succession.

As a new subscriber, you might be interested to know the following things:

By default, as a subscriber, you are not allowed to modify pages. However, if you want to participate in the evolution of this knowledge base, just write to us and we will upgrade your account to the contributor status. For such a free upgrade, you just have to send a request to our webmaster at

N.B.: the address is written this way to avoid spamming, just transform it into the usual format to send us an email.

As a contributor, you won't be able to create pages but you will be authorised to modify most pages. Only the main page and some pages used as portals on specific topics are protected.

Please consult the To do list on our community page to identify the current tasks where we need assistance.

Before starting to edit pages, we recommend you to:

  • become familiar with the site, its general presentation, the usual organization of the type of pages that you intend to modify
  • learn about wikitext format, a very easy markup language used in this site (an excellent tutorial is available on Wikipedia Help Page)
  • familiarize yourself with our editing policies, especially the section dealing with respect of copyrights, before publishing new material

Editing Policies

Since Project WSS is a knowledge base, its policies might be different from those of other wikis. For instance, users are not allowed to create pages. Initial stubs are created by the webmaster according to specific templates to maintain a strong coherence throughout the knowledge base. However, once created, articles (other than those classified as portals) can be freely edited by contributors. Subscribers can read any page. Unregistered users (those without a Username) do not have access to this wiki. If you feel that you have the profile to become a contributor to this knowledge base, please contact the Webmaster. When doing so, please explain the reasons why you want to become a contributor and give a brief summary of your expertise.

Avoid bias, keep a neutral point of view when contributing to articles.

Don't infringe copyrights:

  • Material infringing copyrights must not be added. In case of doubt please verify with the Webmaster
  • Kronoskaf has no tolerance for copyright violations in our knowledge base, and we actively strive to find and remove any that we find.

Respect other contributors and be civil to them.

Realize that Project WSS is a collaborative environment so your contributions can be mercilessly edited. All contributions to Project WSS, unless specifically agreed upon before its publication, becomes the property of Kronoskaf and is therefore copyright material.

Make sure that your contributions are verifiable. Cite your sources in the "References" section of any article that you edit.

State precisely your sources when submitting an image to the webmaster to upload it in the knowledge base. Note that only the webmaster is allowed to upload images. To keep a certain unity of style in our Wiki, we publish only graphical artwork and do not use photos (sceneries, individuals, figurines...).

Stick to the basic template for a given type of page.

Always add a short summary depicting your edits.

Sign your interventions in the "Talk pages" but not your edits of the articles themselves.

Preview your edits before saving them it avoids a lots of "minor edits".

Move your discussion to the "Talk pages" when you argument with another user about the content of a given article. Edit the article once you have come to an agreement. Controversial pages will be protected to stop contradictory edits.

Help us protect the articles against any vandalism. Please revert vandalized articles to their previous version and advise the webmaster.

Kronoskaf reserves the right:

  • to temporarily delete or protect a controversial article
  • to block disruptive users from editing for short or long amounts of time
