A memory refresh

Mosman Oval, January 1913

In May this year, mosmanmemories.net will celebrate its sixth birthday. Internet years are like dog years and whilst we won’t hazard a guess as to its equivalent human age, the site deserved an update.

Here’s a brief outline of what we’ve done:

  • A redesigned template that will adapt to your mobile and tablet devices – we hope you’ll take this site with you as you walk around Mosman.
  • Stories and photos have been given a latitude and longitude so that they can be browsed on a map.
  • You now have the option to license your stories and photos with Creative Commons. You retain copyright but make it possible for other individuals and institutions to re-use your stories and photos on the conditions you specify.

There are lots of other little enhancements throughout the site and we hope the refresh will encourage you to browse the many contributions and comments… and prompt you to add your memories of Mosman.

Our thanks to the Textpattern developers and community for the open source platform upon which this site is built. Special mention to Michael Manfre who developed the plugins for user submissions and Stef Dawson of Team Textpattern for additional customisations.
