    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game

    It's certainly not the best piece of media - I'm not too experienced with graphics, so I hope this was a somewhat decent start.

    Chains of Consequences: How William Jennings Bryan Caused A Jeb Bush Gaffe

    I had my hopes up for William Jennings Bryan somehow inspiring the "please clap" incident. I also now want to see an ASB timeline in which an immortal Bryan somehow manages to finally become president in 2008, after more than a century of being defeated.

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    It's already been established that a Franco-German rapproachment began in 1916, and from the way I see it, that would be very hard with the conditions that were in place in 1912. I reasoned that one way to help facilitate that rapproachment would be a solving of the Alsace-Lorraine crisis - if...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    1917 Europe: January 1: Italy officially leaves the Triple Alliance, as it begins to court a relationship with Britain. January 18-19: Grigori Rasputin, a mystic who had gained favor with Tsar Nicholas II, tries to supplant Grand Duke Michael as Regent. However, his unpopularity, especially...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    I'll be claiming 1917. The post should be out today or tomorrow.

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    Right now, no-one's claimed for 1917. If anyone wants to, they're welcome to, but if no-one claims by tomorrow morning EST (around 10 hours from when I post this), I'll claim 1917 and I should have it out within a day or two. ITTL, Roosevelt managed to get the Republican nomination, so he's...

    Germany Fights On, 1919

    I'd think that it's inevitable that the Germans would lose the war - I think the question is how bad they would lose the peace. Something comparable to Versailles would likely be viewed as too light - at this point, Germany may be looking at being forcibly disunified into several states again...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    When I wrote that, I tried to convey that he was received warmly by the general British public, not the government. I agree that the British government would not have been so inclined towards Martov, but I reasoned that in the minds of the British public, he was a hero, and an uninformed...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    Even so, the Duma was the closest thing to a Parliament that Russia had, and considering what happened in England when the monarch dissolved Parliament, I'd say that Martov would have at least some support.

    @Charles EP M., it's your turn. If anyone else wants to join in, they're certainly welcome to!

    1915 Europe: January 2 - British Prime Minister H. H. Asquith remains steadfast on Irish Home Rule, and additional British troops are sent in to enforce the law. April 17 - In attempt to gain itself some international prestige as well as solve the "Balkan Question", Russia invites...

    I'll claim again for 1915.

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    If you want, you can have 1914 (see Rule 1c). In that case, it's your turn. If not, then wait until someone's claimed 1915, and then you can claim 1916.

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    The 1912 turn is complete. It is @Charles EP M.'s turn. I did leave some details out (such as whether Lenin and the Boshelviks split from the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party, whether Scott's expedition survives, or whether Puyi abdicates), for others to resolve. If no-one else mentions...

    1912 Europe: January 21 - Raymond Poincare becomes the Prime Minister of France. May 5 - The Stockholm Olympic Games open. They are uneventful. October 8 - Montenegro declares war on the Ottoman Empire. Bulgaria, Greece, and Serbia will join it. November 28 - Albania declares independence...

    1912 - [A Collaborative Timeline]

    1912 - A Collaborative Timeline Welcome to 1912! This is a collaborative timeline that goes year-by-year, starting in 1912. I've looked through the forums, and it seems like although there haven't been much collaborative timelines, there are no established rules against them. If this isn't...

    SLP 'Telephone' Maps and Graphics Game

    I'm done with mine. As I don't have much experience with designing graphics like this and I don't have the best computer, I wanted to make sure that I wanted to move the process along. I used this to help me out. Sorry if it's low quality. Anyways, I think @Alex Richards is next.

    An introduction to the Misfit Squadron series

    A couple of questions about the world. Some of them may be spoilers, but I'd say that all questions pertain to the background of the story. I haven't read any of the books in the series yet. 1. Did a World War I equivalent ever occur? 2. What's the situation in France and Central Europe...

    Scenes We'd Like To See: Alternate Movies, Television & Other Pop Culture Miscellanea

    I don't know if Roosevelt would be as much of an influence on Lestrade - Lestrade was portrayed as a longtime policeman as well as somewhat incompetent. With no Bell, an American Holmes might be less "rational" than the OTL one. That being said, however, there could easily be some kind of a US...
