- Trope Namer: This website has named the following tropes:
- Alternate History Wank: There are specific versions for individual countries ("Ameriwank", "Britwank", "Naziwank", "Sovietwank", "Byzantowank" etc.). Over-the-top wanks (usually parodic by their very nature) are commonly referred to as "Alternate History Bukkake".
- Space-Filling Empire : Coined by board member Imajin after getting upset about how all too many Alternate History maps adhere to the lazy solution of All Nations Are Superpowers.
- The Wiki Rule:
- A pretty informative place if you want to get into understanding and writing alternate history. Created in 2006. While it had a bit of a structural and content hiatus at the end of the last decade, it's been undergoing regular updating and improvements since roughly the autumn of 2011.
- There's also the newer and currently less developed AH Tropes Wiki, started by a small group of AH.com enthusiasts.
