General feedback

“I’m 25. I love being on the same foot as visitors to this site that are half my age and twice my age...” (Matt Troup)

”Your site is like a welcoming oasis in the desert of indifference where many have deposited ancient Mexican wealth.” (Ricardo Esponda)

“Hi! I’m Mexican and just discovered your website. Ironic that I’ve learned more from it than from the History books at school...!” (Darién)

Mexicolore replies: Thank you, Nancy, for your kind words.
Mexicolore replies: Thank YOU, Jay, for this uplifting feedback. You’ve no idea how supportive to us this kind of comment is, encouraging us to continue our work. Congratulations on all you’re doing and all best for the future...
Mexicolore replies: Thank you for pointing out any errors. I’ve written to you separately asking for specific details so we can make appropriate corrections. Our apologies for getting the names/credits confused.
Mexicolore replies: Our apologies for this fault. it’s now in the hands of our webmaster. We’ve noticed one or two other pages in the same section are faulty too... Will send you the info!
Mexicolore replies: Pardon me, but we most certainly include chía seeds in the Aztecs’ diet: please see the feature ‘Basic Aztec facts: AZTEC FOODS’ in our Kids section...
Mexicolore replies: Whilst we have a good article on the Guadalupe/Tonantzin question (in our ‘Aztec Gods’ section), we don’t feel qualified to comment on the tilma itself. Sorry!
Mexicolore replies: Good question! We know the siege of Tenochtitlan lasted 80 days - the longest continuous battle, according to John Pohl, in recorded history. We also know the Spanish destroyed the entire city, razing every building ‘street by street’. But as specifically for the Templo Mayor building, we’ll try and get external expert opinion...
Mexicolore replies: Cheers, Leah! Keep us posted of your research: music is of primary interest to us as a team...
Mexicolore replies: We feel humbled by such generous comments and by this hugely encouraging support for our work. Very many thanks, Professor Sandstrom!

Mexicolore replies: Cheers, Rebecca! Thanks for your support and interest.
Mexicolore replies: Would love to help, but the link you’ve pasted in is a dud! Please send us the quote itself or a valid link and we might be able to help...!
Mexicolore replies: Thanks, Laura. Yours is an excellent suggestion (wish now we’d done it from the start!) and in response we’ve already made a good start (around 40 articles) to upload publication dates, at least with major articles...
Mexicolore replies: Warmest thanks to Dr. Sandstrom, who is a member of our Panel of Experts.

Mexicolore replies: Thank you, Deneen. We share your enthusiasm and commitment to working in the public service domain...
Mexicolore replies: Many thanks, Ben, for your generous comments. We follow your own (research and teaching) work closely and have great admiration for it. Hopefully in future we can collaborate directly on disseminating good teaching resources on these great cultures...
Mexicolore replies: Thank you for your kind offer. We’ll see what we can do... (We should point out that the IOQ referred to above is a Masonic Order, based on the principles of Freemasonry).
Mexicolore replies: Many thanks, Joan. [It was thanks to a recent question from Joan that we added a piece on Aztec Pine Torches in Aztec Artefacts].
Mexicolore replies: Thank you, José, for your support and encouraging words - greatly appreciated.
Mexicolore replies: Not sure which article you’re referring to! Please clarify!

Mexicolore replies: Juan Carlos has uploaded an impressive and beautifully made animation film of the Sunstone (we’ve added links to it and recommend it...)
Mexicolore replies: This is a great idea - thank you for it! We’ve always been open to including this sort of personal story/testimonial, and would welcome contributions. If any of you out there know of a suitable potential interviewee - you might like to interview them yourselves! - please get in touch...
Mexicolore replies: As we always say, Alfonso, it’s feedback like yours that keeps us going... Cheers!

Mexicolore replies: Thanks Scott (This relates to the ‘Ideas for a DAY OF THE DEAD story...’ in our Resources section).
Mexicolore replies: You’ve touched a sensitive point here, Sebastian! No, we don’t think it fair to suggest they were stolen. You can read the story of some of the best known (mosaic) items in our Moctezuma pages, here -

We’ve got a whole children’s microsite based on Tec, a flint knife character. You’ll find more info there and also in our ‘Aztec Artefacts’ section...
