As one of the editors of the Chicago Homer  (http://www.library.northwestern.edu/homer) I would like to gather some data about its use. It has been up and running unchanged for a decade. It seems to be a fairly popular site: its use figures have gone up over the years from 500,000 hits to over a million hits in 2012, which—I am told—is quite a bit for a single author site with a distinctly philological orientation.

From time to time I get emails pointing out this or that error, and as a result hundreds of mistakes have been corrected. The site is showing its age: it's late 20th century Web technology and could do with an update. But before I approach the relevant folks about bringing it up to date or adding new functionalities, it would be good to know how people use it or what they would want from it. If anybody on this list uses it or has practical suggestions about what to do with it, I would be very grateful to hear from them.
