0238: /ask.history

askhistory

AMA for places

Every since /history split off from /about, the heavy posters have been looking for a way to keep the quality high without putting people off. They decided to create /ask.history and direct users in /history to put all their questions there.

How did they go about creating a new slash for the global community of history seekers to use?  It’s a two-step process.  First, come to a consensus on a name and a way that the new slash will be used. Second, type the name into a browser.  Localweb.is/ask.history is born.

If you are reading interesting posts at /history and want to go deeper, just put your question into /ask.history and the knowledgeable folks around you who are maintaining /history will enlighten you.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
