I'm prototyping a “This Day in British History” thing on the facebook page. We'll see if it's popular or not. I'm not sure if it makes sense to have it here as well, but if you've got some thoughts on it, I'd love to hear them.
I think it is a great idea. I do something similar on my website although I must admit I don't have a lot of info for it yet and it can be time consuming. I would like to see 'This Day in British History' on the forum mainly because I don't really like or use facebook. While facebook is a good platform for such things I think something equally as good could be incorporated into the forum. I hope a few more people would like to see it here as well.
