Welcome to Old Weather!

The Old Weather landing page (https://www.oldweather.org)
has buttons for:
Old Weather: Arctic (http://classic.oldweather.org/)
and
Old Weather: Whaling (https://whaling.oldweather.org/#/)

While a new system of data entry for Old Weather: Arctic is being built, its button on the landing page takes you to the classic Old Weather interface.
You can check here (http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php#c9) for the current status of Old Weather: Arctic.

Clicking DISCUSS on the landing page will bring you to this forum.
