Adding a story etc
I have just tried to simplify the way I add information by writing a story rather than adding a biography as a photo then highlighting the relevant facts. I produced a 1041 word story for my subject for today & attempted to add it to the box which said 'write as much as you like'. Unfortunately I had to remove it as the uploaded story was incomplete as I had run out of characters, so I resorted to my usual way of doing things. I am currently 'Remembering' 561 lives & I am sure there will be more. I have discovered a significant amount of information on each of them & rather think I will not have time to cover them all before the Lives project comes to an end. Will I still be able to add information once the Digital Memorial is handed over to IWM? Look forward to hearing from you, Cynthia Budd
Hello, on the right side of the 'Share a Story' box you can see that you begin with 5,000 characters which counts down as you type. If you require more characters than this, you can save it and then continue as a separate story under 'Part 2' - see this example: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/3156306#stories I hope that this is helpful. You will not be able to add information to the stories once they have transferred to IWM next spring, but all your contributions will remain visible to everyone.
Thanks and Best Wishes,
