How Are You Doing with the New Commons Format?

Dear H-Californians,

I want to check and see how many of you are shifting over to the Commons.  Are you having any problems?  Do you know what you need to do in order to be able to reply to a discussion post?  Did you know that you can now submit links, audio files, and visual materials to H-California?  Bob Cherny and I will still be acting as editors, editing posts for clarity and appropriateness, but you can submit all kinds of materials by scrolling down to the "Create Content" section and you'll see "Create a Discussion Post", once you're at the H-California Commons.
