In 2008, OutHistory.org set a precedent. [1] The Sun is pretty big [2]

This is a test by Jonathan Ned Katz. [3]

Hello and welcome to OutHistory.org.

Thank you signing up and contributing to the project. Here are a couple of things you may find helpful as you navigate your way through the site:

  • First, we suggest that you set up the correct time zone for yourself by visiting the preferences page. This will allow you see when articles have been posted and edited according to your local time, rather than Greenwich Mean Time. Click on the "Date and time" tab and simply click on the "Fill in from the browser" button to determine your time zone automatically. You can also set other useful defaults on the preferences page.
  • Next, try editing your own user page to tell others a bit about yourself and get familiar with editing. You can access your user page by clicking on your username on the top of the sidebar.
  • Each user on OutHistory has a user page and a talk page. Use your and others talk pages for discussion and communication. Just like on Wikipedia, it's a standard practice to indent your paragraphs one level further when engaging in a discussion. Type a single or multiple colons before each of you paragraphs to indent text (::Like this). Sign your edits automatically by typing four tilde characters (~~~~). If your discussion concerns a single article, edit that article's discussion page instead.
  • Finally, for advanced editing see editing help and above all, experiment on the sandbox page rather than a real article page.

Queer Youth - On Campus and in the Media

Curated by Sharon Ullman

The queer youth exhibit focuses on activism on college and high school campuses as well as representations of queer youth in the media. This exhibit was researched by Bryn Mawr and Haverford students for a class on the History of Sexuality in America. Topics range from GSA’s to GLF to hate crimes perpetrated against at risk youth in the second half of the twentieth century.

Paragraph and Spacing issues

This is a paragraph.

To create another paragraph, I need to type the Enter (or Return) key twice. This gives a blank line in the source. If I type some text and hit my Return key only once and type some more text, it will still be considered one paragraph (see the source of this paragraph and how it's different from the displayed).

If I type the Return key three (or more times), I will be creating empty paragraphs on the page (see how there more space right after this paragraph, again check the source).

There is really no reason for this, Since paragraphs are already separated from on another by a bit of space comfortable for extended reading.
