• xtimeline seems to be run on a low budget (they do accept donations) and I've gotten reports from other that it can be unpredictable, However, it i a very easy tool to use and makes sense for almost any topic where you might need a timeline. To create my Dominoe version of the story, I had to assign and fudge specific time and dates to get things to go in order. As a timeline, it generally works better for things where the events are spread out in time, rather than occurring at moments in a day, although it does stack overlapping events. - cogdog cogdog Oct 24, 2010
  • Entering content on a xtimeline can be tedious, each involves multiple pieces if data to enter. When I first used this tool, it had a feature that you could set up events in a spreadsheet and upload that to populate the xtimeline. That does not seem to be available any more. - cogdog cogdog Oct 24, 2010
  • The site also offers a "list" feature which is interesing- you can create lists of timelines, which could be a way to group a class or a group of related stories/timelines. - cogdog cogdog Oct 24, 2010
