I never saw this before today, else I would've taken the opportunity to enter it; apparantly neither did anyone else! If it's continued in subsequent months, I'll try to remember to look for it.

Since N&S folded, I sent my article on the Siege of Battery Wagner to The Monitor magazine. I guess that doesn't count?

As I have complained about before, things like this quickly "drop off" or otherwise disappear from the Homepage, buried under all the other "popular" ( ? ) topics like Was Lee A Traitor?; moving Forrest's bones; renaming schools; etc.; etc. ad infinitum et ad nauseum. There needs to be some way of maintaining visibility - as often as I'm onsite I NEVER saw it until after the time expired!

Here's a suggestion:
Since many interesting pieces are already placed in the forums why not just select a few of the best and have the members vote for post of the month?
