Hi, everybody; welcome to “The Soapbox”. Think of this posting as a permanent “letter to the editor” page, the watercooler we can all gather around from time to time and just chat. It’s recommended that you click on the “+Hotlist” tag in the upper right of this article, visible to members; this will create a Hotlist right-column box you can monitor for future newly-posted comments. This the place to come to get the latest updates, news and gossip about ongoing changes to the SciScoop site. This “Soapbox” posting is also to give you a place you can leave the editors a piece of your mind on whatever subject you want.
[editor’s note, by apsmith]This was getting big (and lost) – I’ve updated Ricky’s copy slightly and left links for the previous editions below.
Update [2004-4-15 16:30:26 by rickyjames]: Yep, time to update. Remember, Soapbox is the official letter-to-the-editor page; you can always find it by clicking on SOAPBOX in the navigation links of the SciScoop header even as this post slides down and off the front page. Just a reminder: If you’ve got the previous (Jan-April 2004) Soapbox still in your Hotlist, go to that page and click the -Hotlist tab in the upper right corner to de-list the previous Soapbox page from your Hotlist box.
