Created partly in the wake of the Pony Wars, HistoryAlternate.com was a shortly-lived discussion forum intended to be a more casual and writing-focused place of discussion, essentially a cozy “AH.com Lite”. HA.com, in accordance with its efforts of being a place that avoided heated arguments, generally steered away from political discussions and discussions involving various fandom-based topics.
By 2012, the HA.com forums seemed to have lost their traction and they were eventually abandoned, though the precise reason behind their cancellation by late summer 2012 remains uncertain. While HA.com was active, FletcherofSaltoun served as its main moderator, though at least two more members were eventually promoted to mods as well.
For some time, the site appeared to have been taken over by a Japanese company which exterminates bees.
