 **[[The Colour Scheme War]]** - //Nearly started// over the board'​s long-term [[resources:​map colour schemes|dispute about which colour to use on]] [[resources:​maps|AH maps]]. A unique war, because it got narrowly averted thanks to diplomatic goodwill. Many AH.commers were afraid of it escalating into the most destructive conflict the board has ever seen. Ideas for an //​**[[stories:​AH.com The Series]]**//​-like work chronicling the bitter paintshed of the war were drawn, but they never materialized due to the war not getting off the ground. Major factions of this short-lived conflict included the "​[[Greensheviks]]"​ (who prefer to colour Russia green) and the "​[[Goldilocks]]"​ (who preferred to colour Russia gold). There were several small neutral factions too (e.g. Petike'​s [[resources:​colour_it_whatever_you_like|colouranarchist-leaning]] "[[Map Marauders]]"​). The Colour Scheme War has been likened to the Trent Affair, the Phony War and (especially) the Russian Civil War - partly because of them being done to death in mainstream AH and on this board. ​     ​ **[[The Colour Scheme War]]** - //Nearly started// over the board'​s long-term [[resources:​map colour schemes|dispute about which colour to use on]] [[resources:​maps|AH maps]].

-**[[The Pony Wars]]** - The latest and most convoluted of the four conflicts. It surpassed even the scary predictions and expectations originally applied to the UCS War. Even poor Ian the Admin [[http://​www.alternatehistory.com/​discussion/showpost.php?​p=5547481&​postcount=204|was forced to get involved]]. It has yet to come to an end and leaves the ultimate question - who will be the victor that writes history - unanswered for now. Please don't confuse it with the/a P(h)ony War, because it's anything but. You. Have. Been. Warned. (Update : The wars ended by early 2012 with an uneasy, but hopefully everlasting armistice.)  ​+**[[The Pony Wars]]** - The latest and most convoluted of the four conflicts.
