  • 1. I don't know how to transfer to a blog.

    2. I've got an alternative history. What if John F. Kennedy never got assinated?

    • Okay, I've covered this on your wall, but it would be rude not to answer you here.  I see you successfully moved the story to your blog, apparently using simple cut and paste.  There are more efficient ways using the tools available, but what you did worked.  I went behind you and deleted the blank page you left.

      As I mentioned, you can offer the JFK story line elsewhere if you want.  You can save it to your blog here if you want in the meantime.  The failed assassination attempt on JFK is a common one, so you might come up with a better conclusion and resubmit the idea to me here on my wall.  Read up on JFK and the 1960's to see what kind of changes his life could have made in contrast to what LBJ did, for instance. 

      If you want to rebuild the JFK page from scratch, simply change its name to something like "JFK Lives" (shorter page names are best).  That will become the "home page" to the story.  Beyond that you can put new pages which can be added using "Article title (JFK lives)" format.  For instance, you could make a page entitled Space Race (JFK lives) to deal with how he might have pushed congress to fund the space race differently and thus get further along after he left office in 1969.

  • I saw your post about the Supernova in 1604. Underneath, you said that it was probably beyond reality. Actually, though, I've recently been reading a book called The Exploding Suns, by Isaac Asimov. He discusses said supernova, and actually, it could have caused serious damage to life had it been a bit stronger and a bit closer to Earth- not enough, note, to wipe us out, but enough perhaps to increase cancer rates significantly.

    • Wow.  Well, the premise of that short essay was that the supernova was a lot stronger, assuming that it was the same star but that it for some reason exploded in a different way.

      The affect of the radiation, in the scenario, was to reduce the sanity, if not the intelligence, of all humans exposed.  It still remains ASB, but its a great thought experiment anyway.

    • That would be interesting indeed.

  • You won't mind if I make pages on the redlinks I noticed on the TIAH page, will you? The ones on Counter-factual history, that is.

    • And Points of Divergence?

    • By all means, do so.  Red links are more or less an invitation.  Of course, I would really love some actual articles on the TIAH page itself.  That page is there to encourage readers to read more alternate history and write short "histories" of their own in the form of essays on events in real history.

      For instance, anniversaries of the births of famous people are a time to reflect on what life would be like if they had not been born.  In the process, you have to think of what contributions they have made.  On the anniversaries of great battles, or other events, we get a chance to reflect on them and share those thoughts in a "counterfactual" way.

  • I recently found out about this new wiki (via Imp) and wondered if I could move my Timelines here. On the other wiki, there are too many distractions, so while I don't want to leave there, I would like to work on these in... well, exclusion. Would that be all right with you?

    • I was actually following it. I was even reading your 1983 postings, which I found pretty interesting. Then I guess I just forgot about it. I had a very long break with AH several months ago.

    • Thanks!

      I've read a few of those articles, but I'm afraid not many.

  • Hey South. I have begun work on my (and perhaps the wiki's) first TL on this new side. Called It Just Got Real, it is about the Soviets staying a viable power to compete in the Space Race through 3 PoDs - all of which will affect the world in significant and different ways.

    My editing on this TL may be sporradic, and as such - if it isn't too much - I would appreciate if you could help me create the TL (if you like). Even popping in to tell me about points you think should be changed would do nicely, lol. 

    I hope this can lead to the establishment of the wiki as an attractive spot for users.

    • I like good natured.  I assume you know that I am the founder.

      I am doing better.  Thanks for asking.  I had been having stomach problems for over a month and finally got quite expensive scans done (first bill on new insurance -- not a good time for the large deductable!).  I'll find out something tomorrow.

    • I do you are the founder South - that being the precise reason I used the phrase! XD

      Oh I see. I hope its nothing serious, just a minor bug. Get better South! :D

  • I created the article on the Butterfly Effect as you asked and kept it short and sweet. Let me know if you are okay or if you need anything added or changed.

    • Wow. That's the "home world" of alternate historians. I've noted they have a "wiki" which they created for getting around to the timelines and other articles. It looks "low tech," that is, not in the official "wikia" paradigm. I am not sure that any writers would be interested in what I am doing here, but you can make my wiki known to them.

      Though I am open to original works, the stories on my site are to be sourced by the writers and are subject to quality control (spelling and grammar) to included as full articles. I will not be a tyrant and will enlist the help of others as administrators as the need arises. I hate to say it, but bad selling is a little erksome. Grammar, while sometimes bad, cannot be checked as easily before posting, so I don't see that as much of a problem.

      By the way, the signiture picture is too small to be recognizable. I would suggest using just one of the lunar modules as the full size version which you reduce to 30 px. SouthWriter (talk) 18:23, October 12, 2012 (UTC)
