That is very similar to the one I initially suggested, and I think it would look excellent as the site's logo.

So does anyone have any real information on non-European history, circa 800-1700?

Aww no, I'd realised. I was merely pointing it out as it was free and all of these costs add up and so, if wjfox liked it, then he could use it without spending on it.

Yes, it was a good find. That font is what I nearly always think of when I think of old text.

It does make good 'old' text. In primary school, I remember that everybody used to use similar fonts in ICT, as they looked like they were from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

There are quite a few members of my family who have built websites, most of them smaller than this project. I think it will probably be some time next year when the site launches, it's going to take a lot of work gathering the information alone.

Still working on the design/layout. I hope to invite several others to join Mock Flow this weekend, so hopefully we can make some progress.

I'm working on a redesign for FT, which I'll then use as a template for PT.

 

I honestly don't know how long it's going to take... it could be a few weeks, or a few months, but it's definitely 100% going to happen.

 

Once the basic site is ready, the updates will come thick and fast. I have absolutely tons of content to use for PastTimeline.

 

Sorry it can't happen sooner, but I have a full-time job outside this - so my free time is obviously limited. Maybe in a couple of years, I'll be in a position where I'm able to work on both websites full-time.

Sounds very awesome! I think the timeline should start in the year 1999 (where the FT leaves off) and extend all the way back to the beginning of the universe, billions and billions of years ago. The Big Bang, beginning of life, dinosaurs, human evolution, etc. should all be included. Then, Ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece, etc. Then, when we get to the Middle Ages, the Plague in Europe should definitely be included. Then, the expansion of the British Empire, the creation of the United States, the American Civil War, WWI, WWII, the creation of the United Nations, and the Cold War should be included. And yes, I do also agree that the history of non-Western cultures should be included, such as the Pre-Columbian Americas, Eastern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Australia and New Zealand (before European contact) etc.

So does anyone have any real information on non-European history, circa 800-1700?

 

As it happens, I have been working on such timelines recently.  For the sake of clarity, I looked at Asia and Latin America separately. Not in any way comprehensive, but some of the highlights.

I really like the idea as well, although I think the current timeline (about the future, I mean) will stay my favourite. I've always liked both the past and the future, but while I cannot live in the past (as cool as it would be to do a short 'vacation' to see how things were a few hundred years ago etc. and then come back to now), I can look forward to the things still to come :)

 

I know it is quite a pile of work, but if non-Western culture is included, the timeline would be a more comprehensive record of human history. I hate how in school, you learn next to nothing about history outside of our own little box. It's mostly Europe, a bit of America and the tidbits that affected our continent the most in the past centuries (mostly British Empire & colonies). I haven't heard much about Asian history and the like, and it's a real pity.

 

I'm going to wait eagerly for the site to go online - of course, patiently too ;) Don't let anyone (that inlcudes yourself, Will^^) pressure and rush you. It's done when it's done :)

"All scientific advancement due to intellegence overcoming, compensating, for limitations. Can't carry a load, so invent wheel. Can't catch food, so invent spear. Limitations. No limitations, no advancement. No advancement, culture stagnates. Works other way too. Advancement before culture is ready. Disastrous."

There's definitely truth in that...

I'd quite like to see a larger "history" section on the forums as well with the introduction of Past Timeline. The forums could even be renamed 'Timeline Forums' or something like that to cover both the future and the past. Development sounds very exciting, and I look forward to seeing this.
