    Propose very simple mod that allow add any amount articles in ufopaedia in game​
    and own image for article
    and make active in ufopadia scrolling to add big texts.
    also in ufopedia mainpage need aditional button... or also scrolling so there can be more sections

    for start there can be added this two texts
    http://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Background_(Apocalypse)
    and this
    http://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/X-COM_Timeline
    -reports about secret projects before first alien war
    (taken from real life also and reworked or full fiction)
    -reports about secret researches in different spheres
    (taken from real life also and reworked or full fiction)
    -reports about secret goverment and intelegence operations
    (taken from real life also and reworked or full fiction)
    -reports about secret ufo recovers of other possible non hostile alien
    races and fossiles (taken from real life also)
    -reports about possible theory technologies (some of that can be maybe implementable after some hidden move)
    -reports about ancient technologies that comes from vatican library as main place where all gathered thousands years (what was before flood? etc)
    -cultural references like in Fall this can be separate big mod)
    and of course many more...


    also we can open webpage where article and image can be added by any player
    and moderated
    after this article compile in one big file that can be downloaded by mod
    and open in game so each time player will find somthing new...
    and only in game)

    +1 for this idea. Adding the X-COM history to the UFOPedia would be a great thing for Apocalypse, though a monumental task to C&P, Proof and Moderate.
    The main thing is to get the mechanism for this to be done added to the game and I imagine that is where most of the work is going to be prior to any moderation system for the content you propose.
    How to combat bots uploading stuff once moderators start to flow away from the game also needs to be considered... Bots always find a way...
