I hope this will take off! There are numerous bloggers and authors here that "hide their light under a bushel" (and some that do not) and it will give them a chance to shine! If it lasts long enough I might enter a thing or two. As it is now I would have to go back well beyond 60 days to show something I am truly proud of.
I also like the fact you are allowing "New Threads on CivilWarTalk" to enter. There are a couple of members that quite often bring good material to the boards but do not have their own outlet for their stuff! I for one am looking forward to seeing our members at work! And as a bonus we all may find some sites we never knew existed!

This can be rebooted, but we would need a new staff member dedicated to making it work.

Mike and I have our hands full as do the current moderators and hosts.
