    Who do you think you are magazine are hosting an online event called Transcription Tuesday on Tuesday 17 January. Basically the idea is to encourage their readers to take part in some of the crowdsourcing projects that are under away, and one of those listed is OWD - http://www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com/transcriptiontuesday

    We may see more activity within the project and here on Talk with new users trying to get to grips with the project.

    That is a good idea and may attract more users as you say.

    I often wonder if it would be a good idea to advertise this WW1 project in Main City Libraries, where apart from reading books etc, many like to research certain things. I have met quite a few people interested in WW1 in English Libraries and told them about this Zooniverse site and projects. It would involve a lot of advertising though.
