Where to Put Thread that Spans Before/After 1900 and Future History?

    I was wondering where a proposed thread idea of mine should be placed. It'll be titled something along the lines of, "AHC: Most Capitalistic Civilization Possible", and the challenge itself is self-explanatory. The time period it covers will span anywhere from the dawn of civilization to the far future, so I don't know which forum to put it in. For both that reason and for future reference, should it go in Before 1900, After 1900, Future History, or somewhere else?

    Thank you in advance,
    Zyobot

    It doesn’t really matter. Wherever it fits the best.

    Actually, since capitalism itself tends to be a somewhat controversial topic, I would play it safe and post in Chat.

    I don’t see any reason to do that.

    What about a timeline that begins in 1985 and won’t end earlier than about 2030?

    Post 1900, probably.

    This isn't some type of hard and fast rule, just put it where you think it fits best.

    On top of that, even if you put it in the wrong forum it'll just be moved to whatever one is right. I had a Norse mythology WI thread get moved to fandom once because it got overloaded with squirrel girl jokes. (Of course I technically did put it in the right forum; it only got moved because people dogpiled it with marvel references.)

    The POD is what matters.
