Thank you for taking the time to give us your valued feedback TechKnow. The information you provide, based on your own experience, gives definite food for thought and it is good of you to share your insights with us.
We like the idea of having a live portal in as many prep rooms as possible, so colleagues who have a question can have a wealth of knowledge/experience at their fingertips.
We are currently trialling the lobby. It isn't set in stone that this is the direction we are heading, we wish to find out what fellow Technicians prefer. We have a vision of how we see this area progressing on www.sciencetechnicians.org
in the future but it is early days yet, and we will be guided by the wishes of our members.
We’ve tested the lobby with two filtering systems and it appears to work fine but, as you advise, it might not be ‘plain sailing’ ahead, and we urge any users that encounter problems to contact us, as this will help us greatly.
We hope that people will use the lobby if they need help or are willing to be there to offer assistance to others; some Technicians have expressed that they feel a strong sense of working in isolation and so might welcome the chance to talk to others via the lobby.
We would like to state that it is not our intention to compete with other sites; we are here for Science Technicians and hope their wishes will help shape how this site will evolve in the future.
We are grateful for your comments and hope you will become one of our regular contributors at www.sciencetechnicians.org
