This Month's Introduction - New Forum Features
Discussion Forums are a great advantage of the Internet. NDTnet maximizes opportunities for users to meet and expand their networks of professional contacts. With that in mind, we've added a new "profile" icon in the forum in an attempt to compensate for the lack of face to face contact in cyberspace.
Another change you'll notice is that we no longer have a Panel of Experts. We express our gratitude to all Panel of Experts participants who have served during the last 3 years. That does not mean that we have no experts anymore, they will still stay with this forum as participants and hopefully continue their excellent contributions. Along with their future messages a special 'Author Profile' icon will be shown; that icon will appear for all NDTnet authors registered to this forum. One reason that led to this change was that many excellent answers are been posted by all participants of this forum - most of the forum participants are experts!
We hope that all of you will make use of each profile page and update your own profile by filling out the online feedback form or sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org - Thank You!
This is the first message with the new profile features and hopefully will work error-free)
