    Had I thought this through a little better from the onset, I definitely would have made separate threads for each decade with a "Master Thread" linking them all.

    I still may try and tansition towards something like that, although at this point I'm afraid that might ultimately make things more confusing for everyone.

    In any case, I am definitely looking forward to tackling these, the 1890s first and foremost at this time.

    Please keep the new submissions coming, and feel free to continue adjusting any works in progress. And don't be afraid to do other decades well before their respective deadlines! Never too early to get things organized!

    Cheers everyone! I am grateful that so many knowledgable fans are contributing to the project! Thank you very much! May you all have a healthy, safe, and happy new year!

    Rummy - I like the idea of focusing on separate sections for each decade... and then housing them together with a master link. This is such an awesome survey and really looking forward to the end result.

    Thx,
    Joe

    I very much like the idea of creating a master thread and breaking down individual decade threads.

    If I do it, I just need to figure a way to incorporate posts from others into it, because a lot of the lists are still here. So I'm still undecided.

    But sadly, I'm going to have to push the deadline back another week or 2, but I'll definitely cap off the 1890s in January and the 1900s 2 weeks after that deadline.

    I'll write more when I have a chance, and I'll start at least listing the 1890s lists I see to date, and start tabbing those more frequently.

    I apologize everyone. Had to push the 1890s deadline back another 3 weeks.

    My January plans keep getting more and more hectic. Apologies. I want to make sure the deadline extends to the very moment when I can dig in and dive through these.

    The tentative deadline for the 1900s is two weeks later, on Feb 19.

    So 1890s deadline.... Feb 4, 2023
    1900s deadline.... Feb 19, 2023

    Those should be firm, however. And I'll announce the 1910s deadline when I close the 1890s.
