    I want to share some Timelines in spanish: 'El Visitante' pod: Hitler is killed in an attempt in the paris opera building... that continues with two more threads 'La Pugna'(The struggle) & 'Crisis el-Visitante' (Crisis the Visitor).
    Also the first ever ASB Timeline in spanish: La Fractura or Spain 2016 ISOT to August 1940.

    The Fracture :
    At the end of 2016, just in one of the most decisive moments for the Contemporary History of Spain, the country that is debating between several possibilities of political agreement or the call for new elections, appears at the end of August of 1940. Spain remains the same, (except for the mysterious disappearance of several million migrants and foreign tourists) and will must face the challenges from hers came to a world that is at war.

    On which you are based to state it... Because although these forums has a public, clear and a strong political position... AFAIK the FMG is not hosted there.
    But notwithstanding the hosted stuff, I want to share this forum's TLs that being the start of Alternate History writings in Spanish.

    One of the genre’s best classic science fiction magazines can be now found online for free in Archive.org. That's now it's home to a collection of Galaxy Science Fiction, which published some of the genre’s best works.

    It’s not complete, yet, but the collection contains 355 separate issues, ranging from 1950 through 1976.

    A page for biology and ecology resources

    For those that are writing AH or other stories that also have a focus on nature and geography:
    https://www.alternatehistory.com/wiki/doku.php?id=resources:biology_and_ecology

    I started this resource namespace page already a good while ago, and it still needs growth. If you can recommend any dependable sites with species databases, topics about biodiversity, ecosystems, etc., feel free to share and help that page grow.

    Details can say a lot about differences between various historical periods.

    Given how the topic described in the above video also pertains to footwear, I'll just add that heels start becoming more common by the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. And even during the early 17th century, the shoes with heeled souls of the time usually weren't built as ergonomically as they'd be today. They just sort of gradually copied the shape of your feet as you wore them.
