This forum is intended to showcase longer, more developed alternate history scenarios. Especially those that are "finished" or no longer actively discussed, so they don't get lost in the Discussion forum. Debates about the timelines shouldn't take place here - thread creators can post a link to a Discussion forum thread for debate, so that it doesn't happen in the middle of posting more parts of a timeline. Preferably, put the link at the top of your first post. (If you forget to do this, ask a mod to put the link into your post). Each scenario must be at least 2000 words. So when you start a thread, the first post must be at least 2000 words. All new threads are moderated - threads don't show up until they're approved by the moderator. Mods check if it's long enough, belongs in this forum, and so on. ASB scenarios are allowed if they're internally consistent (mods have some discretion). Current moderators are: Chris, MBarry, Othniel. How to move yout scenario from the Discussion forum: Threads will not be moved from Discussion, you need to repost the scenario here (cut and paste it into a new thread here). It's nice to include a link to the original thread, but don't put *just* a link. Multiple posts/threads: Each scenario must stay in *one thread*, don't start new threads to add to the same scenario. Either add another post to the original thread, or PM a mod to paste it into the end of your original post. Editing posts: If you want to edit the initial post of your scenario, PM the new version of the *entire post* to a mod. 200,000 character limit: There is currently a 200,000 character per post limit on this board. So, really long scenarios may be unable to fit in one post. Put as much as you can into the first post of your new thread. Once it is approved, add the rest in more posts. Posting scenarios not written by you: Only in very limited cases should you post a scenario that you yourself did not write. 1. You have the explicit permission of the original author. 2. You are the editor of the website/ezine in which it originally appeared. 3. It was originally posted to one of the alternatehistory.com Discussion forums. Warning on Prose/Short stories: The reason the Writer's Forum exists is so that you can post a story that can only be read by members. If you post it here, it can be read by the general public, so that is considered a form of *publication*. Do not do that if you ever plan on trying to sell the story.
