I'm a bit curious how many people active on this site identify themselves as professional historians.
I know there are some statistics available from when the site entered private BETA, but I assume the set of people has grown since then.
If you're willing to state that you are, I'd appreciate it; especially if you list your area of expertise/concentration/research.
When I say "professional historian" it's somewhat loose - e.g. you hold a degree/concentration in History/Anthropology/related discipline, or you teach it, or you have published works that can be classified as historical research.
P.S. It's mostly idle curiosity about the site demographics, no specific purpose in my asking.
One possible use for the info might be to be able to ask targeted questions aimed at areas where we KNOW we have experts, which should generate high quality answers that would improve the site overall IMHO.
Another one would be for CHAOS team responsible for History SE to see if the site would benefit from extra efforts to attract professionals.
