Interesting perception:I voted for ditch it, as otherwise never anything will happen!
We like the ChemicalForums, and not a Marketplace of Jobs & Jokes with some Chemistry!
But it mutates there! Where is our Delete button?
And You have much more Guests as Members!
There is 1 Job subforum (board)
There are 16 Chemistry subforums (boards) for area specific questions
There are 7 subforums 9boards) in general Forums Section in this section there is one board for General discussion here there is 1 Humor subforum (board). In this section there is 1 Job subforum (board)..
HHHHMMMM do the math!!!!!!
I find it odd I never am notified of recent posts in the job forum or humor forum....but then I have never requested notification from these boards.
I have requested notifications from: General Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Materials Chemistry, and Analytical Chemistry. I can clearly see I do not get all those notifications....
Now if you are a GUEST....and you are not looking for a job then do not go to the JOB FORUM.
If you are a GUEST...and you are NOT seeking to read new jokes...then do not go to the Humor Forum...
If you are here for help with CHEMISTRY....go to the forum which addresses your issue/question....I guarantee you there is someone there who will help you!!!!!
On the other hand, if you are unemployed, unhappily employed, or seeking to change/advance your career, you may find an employment opportunity posted in the job forum that may interest you. Even if you do not, there is contact information in those posts you may find useful!!!!!!
Now why all the ANGER!!!!! it is a simple process to maneuver this forum...go where you like and avoid what does not appeal to you!!!!
Now what would be UNACCEPTABLE...is that this forum has job popups, it has referenced jobs in posts on the blog like this: http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nj7181-1024a
Other powerful forums such as Separation Science: www.sepsci.com
have referenced chemical forums as a valuable reference and have set a link to this site on their forums....so people can be directed here for help....Well, sepsci has a job board..http://www.lcresources.com/wiki/index.php?title=ChromFAQ:MoreInfo#On-line_Discussion_Groups_.2F_Bulletin_Boards
So if I follow your logic then chemicalforums would have to dissociate itself from any body that supports or posts or touts jobs....in any way shape or form...and only post chemistry questions?
Even the pharma forum here addresses the current employment issues in pharma.....so that would have to cease..
I mean just trying to understand your LOGIC....people come here for assistance with chemistry questions...if they do well in school they graduate...if they graduate they will be seeking a job....a job in chemistry or some related field....and posting some of these opportunities IS BAD BECAUSE?!!!!!!!!!
Please help me to understand what you mean?
So if one does not find a specific board useful or interesting....then one can bypass it...or..OH...set a poll in motion to eliminate it....regardless of whether or not it is useful to others!!!!
This forum is eclectic...that is part of its charm, power, and utility!!!
