Welcome aboard! :) These maps look good to me, can't see whatever might be so offensive in those middle ones that AH.com would have any reason to ban you, but maybe that's the point - they've only been growing more arbitrary & thin-skinned over the past decade, maybe it was that single line about refugees causing the 'European Great Collapse' that mortally offended Ian and his jannies lmao. In any case the Sietch is way cooler about such things than AH.com, I've seen people post far spicier opinions than a few maps and not face any moderator action, so if you're looking for an oldschool forum to post AH and other fiction in without constantly walking on eggshells, I'd say you've definitely come to the right place.

thanks!

what got me banned was that line about the, uh, "preventing blonde hair and blue eyes from disappearing as a result of the Lost Century." or something. Got banned by that guy with the B in his name. Apparently that was a "dog-whistle", since only a "fascist state" is "reverting" this.

Which is dumb. The ad makes it real clear it's a company ad, the same way you may see companies advertise, idk, chest implants, tattoos, what have you. Sure, AngiersGroup is a tad racist cause, well, their CEOs are, but compared to the previous TL where they were committing gamer moments in Africa, this is actually hella tame.

Maybe the Great Collapse being caused by refugees played a lil part in it too, but I got banned before I even made the Italy map lol

Burton K. Wheeler, eh? Yeah, I myself also dislike the AH.com mods for their opposition to free speech; I myself previously got banned from there for expressing openness to the idea that there could be genetic human group differences in regards to traits such as average IQ and citing neuroscientist and intelligence researcher Richard Haier in support of my view.

@sBeeper hey, this is me! I am the guy who contacted you thru DeviantArt.

I am the guy who got banned 5 times.

I might be of interest to you since I am making a map which features a Greater Armenia, Greater Italy, (almost) Greater Romania and (almost) Greater Bulgaria at the same time : Roter Rhein , Krasnyy Reyn - What If The Axis Members Called It Quits In Early 1943? it also featured here : https://www.the-sietch.com/index.php?threads/rejectionist-alternate-history-idea-novel.7699/page-3

Let me know if you are interested in collaborating!

An alternate history from the series of what if the ancient Poles had migrated south. The author admits that he made up a mistake with Konstynapol; instead of calling it Carogrod, he could have called it Konstacin.
A Polish Constantinople would be epic! :)

I can, what is the point?
The map is like this

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/97/Greater_Yemen.jpg additionally South Yemen should own Asir, Qunfudah,Al Bahah, Jizan and Najran that you can see in this map.


Romania should look like this

so really just missing Dobruja like before but not pre-WW2 Moldova they owned.


Ok, Slovenia seems to be missing the whole of Carinthia Brave Search and these 3 :


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Südoststeiermark_District


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leibnitz_District


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutschlandsberg_District


Do you have a recommended color palette for these map? I did a bit of trials and the colors I am using but they seem to almost cover the beautiful cyan and black atmosphere.


For the future, since I want to tackle DE-COLONIZATION (in this timeline of mine it will happen in the early 1980s) would you feel comfortable in the future to help with other borders changes ?

Not very, I've never made such a map.

I can help set boundaries, although don't expect miracles.

Well, fixing the few others. I could simply to like do these base map, put it there and once colonization comes in my TL I will simply save me time and energy and ask around helping someone can help.
