Add additional (generic) events to record
My main interest is the men named on the roll of honour for the Surrey Association of Church Bell Ringers. From the ringing newspapers I can find quite detailed accounts of when and where these men were ringing. This can actually be quite revealing of matters of military service - eg footnotes saying that a piece of ringing was a farwell to Fred Bloggs prior to his joining up the following day, or rung while home on leave (often short leaves during training which don't show up even the service record actually survives). It also reveals the personal connections between these men, who actually knew each other in person, despite coming from some distance apart in Surrey. It can also trace movement between censuses form the tower where they ring most.
For other people awaiting the communities functionality I can imagine that similarly being able to record details of particular cricket or football matches could help fill in details and show particular connections between men.
For an example of how I've been recording some of this information within my own project see http://halfmuffled.wordpress.com/the-towers-and-men/a-e/ashtead-st-giles/sydney-reddick/
Hi David - you can actually add generic non-military events in two possible places.
One, under 'Family & Civilian Life' > 'Other Life Events'; two, under 'Civilian Contributions' > 'Other Civilian Service Events', depending on where you think it would best fit.
