as I am not a web site designer, or in fact very P.C. literate, please forgive the following if I am asking for the impossible. Thanks.
Would it be possible to add an "On This Day" section to the site ? This could of course be "live" and "free form" so that people could just post on the day, that which happened "on that day" in history, and it would be posted. Or, if possible, it could be filtered so that it would form a data base (moderated of course) with a search feature that would allow us to dip in to this "ever growing" mine of information ? Maybe - date, location, nation, service - could be a start for the tags. If these tags were then placed both on past and present posts in other areas of the site the potential for research projects would be imense ( I would imagine).
I do realise that this takes time and maybe money, however, I do believe it would be of great benefit to many of us and could well induce more folk to join.
Just an idea......
