As of 12pm on July 12th, account details have been sent via email to everyone who has expressed an interest in signing up and contributing to the project. We now have 244 people willing to document their day, and we’ve even had the first post from Maev Kennedy (Guardian archaeology correspondent) which will go live at 00:01 on the 29th. If you want to contribute, you can still sign up, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
At present, all new users have been set to contributor status, which wordpress defines as:
Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish them
All contributions will be moderated prior to them appearing on the site, so any issues can be fixed before they go live. We have instructions on how to post via the traditional wordpress interface, or you can use the wordpress application on your android or iOS phone. Later today, details on how to post via email will appear on the site as well.
If you’re interested, the map below shows locations of contributors where known.
The day gets closer!
