For valley of shadow we thought we could use the home page style for our site potentially. However, we felt it had too much of a museum feel.
For the French Revolution site was not conducive to how to set up our site. Yet we agreed we need a search bar.
The emancipation project was not with our style.
For the Gilded age site we really liked the interactive map, however we unsure if we could do something similar with the Diaries data.
The Great Molasses flood site had a good concept but very crowded, and slightly confusing. We did like Dublin Core meta data.
Map Scholar we liked the style of the document front and center with transcription on side, and the scroll through.
For the Digital History site we liked the info being present at the bottom in categories, not so much the scroll function.
The Emile Davis Diaries was the site we liked the most. The idea of potentially allowing comments to get better transcriptions was appealing. We liked the annotations, but not the tags function. However we thought it needed a separate about page, and an probably intro page.
The Digital Scholarship lab site was more interactive and data driven then our needs.
The Mapping the Republic of Letters site we really disliked most of it. However the color scheme of red and tan was nice.
The Virtual Paul’s Cross Project, was less our style. We thought it should include info with images not leave them separate from larger image.
Trans atlantic slave trade database did not work.
Imagining the Past had a exhibit like structure, but was too text heavy.
Grad Student DH Projects at UNC were confusing to navigate and the sites were pretty empty. It was also clearly more blog like, which we did not like.
For How did they make that?, it was too a clearly course site, hard to separate from that.
We also came up with the idea of a featured page with a randomly generated diary page on the front page.
