It's just that it would be deserving and interesting to see the 21st Century have it's own section for articles on the Main Site, There are plenty of examples of things we could put in ths section, For example I'm currently writng an essay on Radical Islam an it's place in the 21st Century.

I will talk it over with the Admins and see if we should include 21'th century issues in Modern History, create a new thread or leave such discussions for Current Affairs.

I'm talking about a section for such issues on the main All Empires magazine site though.

Is their a method to 'publish' footnotes in All Empires?  In my old forums (Modern War Studies), which are now deceased, footnotes found quite a bit of use (admittedly, the forums were small, new and active members were lacking, but that's besides the point! LOL ).  I think it would be a good idea, and it pushes for factual accuracy.

You could add them under the text.
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.

This can also be done, though I must say it may take some time.

That's true and it may be enough for the purpose of the forum, but it was worth a shot anyways. LOL But, perhaps BB footnotes would allow people to directly access the source by clicking on the '1' (or whatever number).  This method was employed in one of the articles on the main page, and I thought it was a good idea.

The main site has a [ref][/ref] system for footnotes, which I think is a great feature. It links the superscript numbers to an automatic "References and Notes" section at the bottom of the article, where the footnote is. I'm guessing this is what you are talking about Catalan?

Yes, Knights.  It's similar to Wikipedia's reference system, then.  I don't know about the forum software of All Empires, but there is a reference modification for BB code and the php might be the same (dunno, don't know php) ... so it can potentially be based on phpBB's mod.

I would request the moderators to look into the individual ''rambo4'' who I suspect is malingering and pretending to be someone that he is not.

I notice alot of alternate history and what ifs have made it into other areas of the forum. I was wondering if it would be possible to add a more higer profile alternate history and what if discussion to AE?

For example why don't we add an Alternate history discussion section to the main menu of the forum or to the schalorly persuits section?

Hehe. Alternate's so much cooler.

I noticed that too Kevin, especially in the Modern History forum. There exists a fine line between what if scenarios, for example - a different tactical decision in a battle, compared to pirates versus ninjas. The fault is our sometimes in that we don't move those kind of posts over to the Historical Amusement section as often as necessary.
 
I think we'll stick to our current setup, with better vigilance of course,  instead of creating a seperate forum for Alternative History.
