There are many ways to participate in our Year of the Bay project, celebrating the diverse history of the San Francisco Bay. Here are just a few:
Pin photos, video, or audio (and start your own channel!)
Be sure to use the “Pin your memories” button on Year of the Bay’s homepage in order for your content to appear in the project.
Anything you post through Year of the Bay will automatically appear in your own (customizable!) Channel, which houses all of your content.
If you’ve already started a channel and want to add its content, email Kerri at email@example.com and we’ll migrate it for you into Year of the Bay.
Solve a History Mystery
…or two, or three, or all of them! If you have expert knowledge about a certain place, time, or topic, share it by identifying the location, year, or subject of some photos. You can also help by overlaying photos to the modern day Google Street View. Find these under the “Mysteries” tab on the Year of the Bay main page. Just login to your Historypin account, choose a mystery from the list, and press “Solve.” The original pinner will be notified of your change, and can accept or deny your suggestion.
Suggest more accurate details
If you believe you see incorrect information on a photo, please use the “Suggest more accurate details” feature found on each pin. Anything you suggest will be seen by the original pinner.
Add comments, suggestions, and share your story
You might have a story directly related to some pinned content. We’d love to have you share it under the “Comments and suggestions” tab found on each pin.
Host a pinning event
Get together with friends and family, share photos and stories, then add them to Year of the Bay!
If you have any further questions, contact Kerri at firstname.lastname@example.org.
