  1. Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    How about "Kuna" (the word for "marten" in modern Croatian and the name of the currency used in today's Croatia) as a name for W-YUG currency? It's true that it would be a clear reference to the ancient Croatian Kingdom (925-1102) which could be an issue in the multinational EFP Mandate, but...
  2. Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    Could the coming IRSDLP(u) congress mentioned in the update be the moment when the party decides to get rid of the (u) in their name? Martov and Bukharin have now entered the choir and the few Bolsheviks who were too stubborn to follow their leader have joined forces with anarchists and the...
  3. Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    The passing mention to Jewish Self-Defense Forces being integrated into the Republican Guards makes me wonder what the latter actually do, now that the revolution is in its third year and the UoE seems pretty secure as the Russian Empire's successor state. I know they're giving a hand with...
  4. Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    Nice summary! Now everything is a lot clearer. The chapter where you introduced allohistorical economic theories and principles (like auto-preference) was one of my favorite updates. I can hardly wait to see how you deal with the new religious landscape in the UoE. I hope Russian Cosmism is...
  5. Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    Thanks! I hope I'll be able to be of help, as other readers have been so far. Otherwise, well, it's still a +1 for your readership. ;) Oh, so the conservative fringe, besides being marginalized (and probably actively persecuted in the EFP mandates where the Räte are dominant) is also...
  6. Feeble Constitution - A Red-and-Green Russia 1917 Timeline

    Hi! First time poster, but after finally catching up from page 1 to page 33 consider me on board this really fine timeline! 👌 There's something that seems missing amid the current uncertainties about the future of continental Europe and adjacent parts of the world: what's going on with Willy...

    In my defence, I wrote that I had just glanced at the text of the update, so my text comprehension skills were only half-functional. Otherwise, I apparently did what the promoters of the "No" option feared many voters would have done on May 12/13, 1974 and didn't understand that you had to vote...

    Hi, Italian citizen here and I have something to say about a paragraph in your latest update that has left me a little disoriented. I start by saying that this is my first post in this thread since I'm still catching up with the TL (I'm currently going over chapter 10 with a fine comb, to be...

    Threadmarks: Interlude III/c - The situation in India

    A concise timeline of events in the Indian subcontinent (1935 - 1970) 1935 - The workings of the Labour government in the UK, busy with drafting the Government of India Act, take an unexpected turn after the Prime Minister starts availing himself of Muhammad Ali Jinnah's advice on the degree...

  12. To discover a flaw in Nature - A "Meet the new boss" spinoff-TL

    Let's see, what's happening at the Lenin Mausoleum? Oh... Well, apparently we're back in business, Comrades! Anyway, I never really stopped working on To discover a flaw in Nature during these last two years and a half, but the amount of material I actually managed to produce was -- not as...
  13. Look to the West Volume V: To Dream Again

    Thank you! :cool: I don't understand how I managed to miss that readily-available translation but that's one less doubt, at least.
  14. Look to the West Volume V: To Dream Again

    Just that? Then I wonder where the "electride" part of the expression comes from, since the word for gas in the LTTW world is luft. After all, mentions of "luftlights" become a feature in almost every chapter after another member pointed out the inconsistency of the term "gaslights" being thrown...
  15. Look to the West Volume V: To Dream Again

    Given the existence of things like Laryngeal theory, there's not enough scholarship about Proto-Indo-European to begin with. :biggrin: @Thande I just realized that I've been bothered for all of Part VI by a tiny, almost irrelevant detail that has ballooned out of proportions due to constant...
  16. Pride Goes Before a Fall: A Revolutionary Greece Timeline

    I infer that butterflies flapping their wings spared young Friedrich Ferdinand from his untimely death in 1847, am I right? Perhaps this divergence should have deserved a place in the last update's notes, just saying.
  17. Hadrian's Consolidation - reboot

    Does that mean that the chapter at post #558 (page 28 of this thread), at least for the part concerning silphium, is no longer canon? :eek: Leaving that aside for a moment, what did you think about my proposal about Ginseng?
  18. Hadrian's Consolidation - reboot

    Well, this the TL where Hadrian prevented that plant (or was it another one? Anyway a currently extinct plant due to overexploitation by the Romans) from completely disappearing, so at least there's that as a precedent against your scenario. It should also be remembered that it would be...
  19. Hadrian's Consolidation - reboot

    First post in this thread for me and going back to what has been written in the last page or so about the trade balance between Han China and the Roman Empire, I have a question: would Roman like Ginseng? By the current ATL time, Chinese medicine was already high on that plant, as miraculous...
  20. Stars and Sickles - An Alternative Cold War

    First of all, good to see you back! Second of all, left-Islamist Iran is something that you rarely see in alt-history, since the general assumption is that Tudeh and the pro-Soviet field is the default winner in any scenario that doesn't end with the regime of the Ayatollahs rising to absolute...
