No worries, you don't need to apologise because you haven't done anything wrong. :p

If you still want to do a Watchmen timelines thread at some point, which I think was discussed, you can just copy it over no problem.
 
Thanks!
Doomsday Clock is not canon?
I asked the same question in another Watchmen timeline post. Aparently both the TV show and Doomsday Clock follow the comic but the two continuations are mutually exclusive between themselves

If and when you add the Watchmen movie to either this timeline or a different one, are you gonna add the ultimate cut (215 mins) or the director's cut (186 mins)?

The Watchmen tv show treats the original graphic novel as canon, not the movie.

Movie universe consists of the ultimate cut, the "Under the hood" documentary and I think the "end is nigh" videogame
