How to prevent a mass death scenario and bigoted power fantasy from this ISOT scenario?
WI: All European and Near Eastern victims of oppression, slavery and genocide in world history ISOTed to Pacific Northwest, 2019.
ISOT them to safer place and ratherly virgin Earth with enough of supplies to build civilisation. You are not going ISOT millions of people without any mass death scenarios and other problems if you are making that to ours world.
I am not sure where to ask this so I am going to ask it here. So on the writing subfourm I have seen a few scifi stories that have nothing ( seemingly) to do with alt history so I am wondering if I could post non alt history fiction stories there. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask or if it is a stupid question.
I believe you could put the scifi story in the Writer's Forum. However, there are two other Forum options on AH.com for scifi stories:
Alien Space Bats and Other Magic - for alternate history scenarios that involve time travel, magic, alien intervention, anything in the sea of time, and other such weirdness.
Fandom AH - for stories that involve alternate versions of fictional universes, including crossovers.
The stories I want to post are not scifi ( except for maybe one) but instead original fantasy stories set into modern world ( most of which involve magic to some extent). Are those kinds ok.
Assuming they are not taking place in a fictional universe, the ASB forum would probably work for the fantasy stories.
Is it wrong to delete a post and then cut-and-paste it into one post, where it's a multiquote? (I already did this in one of my own threads, to avoid replying twice!)
You put anything in Writer's except current politics and porn. Which are, in many ways, sort of the same thing.
I seem to have broken something on the board somewhere for me when doing a regular bit of spring cleaning on my PC. Mousing over the alerts tab used to cause it to pop up automatically, but or some reason I've got to click it now and the front page of the forum is in some weird extended mode that has all the descriptions of the subforums there that I don't think I've seen since before the current version?
Anyone got any clue what's happened here? I purged cookies and some Chrome cache stuff, but that's about it for the browser. I'm trying to bring back the old alert system with the mouseover, because I get alerts constantly due to my stories (I can wake up with a hundred plus alerts) and having to click each time to deal with it is driving me mental.
Can you do a system restore from a few days ago?
Don't have anything like that, alas. I've tried to do a Chrome reset within the advanced settings, no such luck, but it doesn't seem to be a problem to do with a messed up cookie or anything like that. When I try to visit the site in Edge rather than Chrome, I still get the problem with the mouseovers not working (which buggers up the alerts, the inbox and the search tab) which makes me think it is an option somewhere that I can't find.
