Re: How to Create and Respond to Discussion Posts On H-West-Africa

Well, Roy and Felix and Niklas,

This was a great post.
I feel like some prehistoric sluggish creature prodded into responding.
Your comprehensive, non-assuming basic and repetitive instructions of the procedure over and over, awakens even social media Luddites like myself into making the seemingly vain effort to get involved instead of grieving the old way, and behold here I am!!

Re: Posting to H-Scholar


As a longtime subscriber to H-Scholar, you remember how much easier it was to post and reply to messages in the old "listserv" days. Now, as you point out, one has to be logged on before replying to a message, and the text of the post to which one is replying does not appear in the "Post a Reply" box, necessitating copying and pasting.
