It has been confirmed that Spacebattles is filtering out links to The Sietch.
Discussions with the owner of SB have indicated that they desire a clean break with us and feel that this is a means to that end.
Out of respect for their desire for a clean break we request that our members refrain from violating this unwritten policy.
We have defeated the e-COVID! (we hope). If you are still running into issues with posting, post in the technical support forum about it. If you can't post there, PM Tippy.
Had an "odd" idea from this thread, but because I'm curious, I don't suppose Imperial America could develop something of an "American" language descended from English?
Because personally, I don't think the influx of lots of foreign vocabulary will be the only significant change, as I imagine the language itself will come to accommodate the absorption of foreign peoples and colonial subjects who may struggle with its inconsistent grammar and orthographic rules. (e.g.: The institution of a standardized spelling system.)
Actually, since you wrote a TL on his victory, I don't suppose you have any book recommendations on Thomas Dewey?
I don't much about him, but he strikes me as an interesting guy, especially given the contrast between OTL and what a "special" president he is in IYTL. (Any recommendations you might have for the Fifties in general would also be appreciated, if you're so inclined.)
Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be participating in the Politics section as much.
It’s less monocultural than AH.com, but I honestly don’t have it in me to argue with everyone, or scroll through threads chock full of people arguing with each other. (Yes, I know that’s to be expected on sites like this, which is why I’ll be sticking to less “argumentative” sections. So, please, do spare me the “Oh, poor you!” comments.)
The sky opens up. Light beams over every corner of the Earth, and the dead fly back into the shape of their living selves. And everyone hears a voice older than time, louder than the Sun, and clearer than space. "The first thing that you all need to know is that my pronouns are He, Him, and His. With a capital H."
Have some more creative-writing proposals in mind, and was wondering if I could run them by you via PM?
(Most of them aren't set in the same universe as my Two Empires scenario, though there's a couple far-future story ideas I've been toying with, in which the civilizations of 3000 A.D. or whatever inherit a mix of American and Chinese influences.)
Was wondering what you'd say, especially in light of your already-established views on what's to come at large. In which case, I don't suppose the twentieth century will be considered more of a "mid-Modernity" phase that builds on the nineteenth century, but is dwarfed by the carnage of the twenty-first?
I have enough knowledge to recognize that a swastika isn't inherently fascistic, but now I understand that a symbol of infinity is still very ominous for national iconography. Googol might as well be infinity for all human purposes.
Banhammered ehh? Tens of thousands of whites,latino's,asians,etc get raped,robbed and murdered every year but OH MY GOD THE NAUGHTY NO NO WORD in a moment of very human anger is a problem. I don't know you very well but good luck on you're appeal bro.
p.s. Don't forget to advertise this site to the right people, nothing would piss off the people who wanted you banned more than having new adversaries.
