Last days to donate before the year ends

Filed under: Uncategorized — Max @ 6:15 pm

We’re always open for donations (and we try to be restrained about asking for them), but as the year comes to a close, it’s worth noting that if you donate before midnight on December 31, you can take the donations off your 2011 taxes.

Please give generously to help us expand our coverage for 2012.

Poll Question, Please Vote

Filed under: Uncategorized — Max @ 11:45 pm

This is the first in a series of polls designed to find out more about how you perceive the History Commons, and how it can do a better job for you.

In Web development speak, a “walled garden” is a site or online tool that is inaccessible — you can’t do much with it besides read the content. It’s tough, sometimes impossible, to interact with others on the site, whether it be other users or the site administrators.

That’s what this poll asks you about. Please vote, and please share this with others who might use, or be interested in using, the History Commons. And please comment on your vote in the comments!

(This poll is replicated on our sister blog.)
