Created along with the New Board back in December 2003, the Political Chat Forum (“PC”, “PolChat”) is part of the Off-Topic subsection of the AlternateHistory.com discussion board, located right at the board's main page. As its name implies, it serves as a forum where people can have discussions on various political topics that interest them, including historical topics and current affairs topics alike.
Of course, civility in discussions is fully expected in this forum, just like any other. Even moreso than usual, given how heated some discussions on politics can get.
Non-political Chat and Political Chat were once a single forum for off topic discussions, but after Ian and many board members discussed whether to separate political discussions or not (due to the growth of the forum), the forum was split into two new forums, one of them Political Chat and the other NPC.
General chat about things unrelated to alternate history. Political discussion is allowed in this forum but the rules of good behavior are still in effect. Don't denigrate other people's political views.
Only registered members can read this forum.
Political Chat Thread Titles - Jokey stuff.
AH.com Politics - A now-obsolete, tongue-in-cheek form of AH.com roleplaying from the past.
National Politics Index - If you want an overview of some major political discussion threads from PolChat.
Expected etiquette in PolChat - Layed out in a concise post by our good admin himself. While we do have a political discussion forum, it requires the same level-headedness, maturity and decorum as all the other forums. One should never forget that PolChat is not a forum for angry arguing over political topics, or some equivalent of social media spaces flooded with constant arguing. Play things cool while in PolChat, respect others, and everything will be fine.
