-The first incarnation of the [[AH.com Structure|AH.com Discussion Board]], [[http://​www.alternatehistory.net/​cgi-bin/​discus/​discus.cgi?pg=topics|now existing as archive-only]]. It differed from the [[offtopic: New Board]] in several details: For example, the default setting was that threads started with the most recent post (on top) to the initial post (on the bottom). Also, while the Old Board had user-names, it in fact displayed the real name, a fact that trapped most members. ​+The first incarnation of the [[AH.com Structure|AH.com Discussion Board]], [[https://​web.archive.org/​web/​20100104194137/​http://​www.alternatehistory.com/​cgi-bin/​discus/​discus.cgi|now existing as archive-only]].

 It was originally possible to post on the board without registration,​ however on the 27th of August 2002, the Almighty [[Ian]] decreed that from now on registration would be required. This led to some people having different user-names than before, and these are also noted in the list where available. Of course, many veterans now still active hail from the Old Board. It was originally possible to post on the board without registration,​ however on the 27th of August 2002, the Almighty [[Ian]] decreed that from now on registration would be required.
