Ever feel that the forum is dying? Well, not any more! The admins came up with an idea for monthly topic discussions. Every month, there will be different topics released for members to discuss on. For February, the topic is

Uprooting toxic waste, in a cheap way.

Members are encouraged to express opinions on this topic, be it positive or negative. Whether you are supporting or against uprooting toxic waste through biotech means, your opinions will help to keep the discussion moving. Now, FIRE AWAY!

Happy New Year! From us @ MAAYS

Happy New Year! From us @ MAAYS

Dear valued members,

2009 had been a great year for us at MAAYS, and we are sure it was a great one for you too! The year 2009 is full of memories: happy, sad, surprising events, regardless, we should always keep a positive mind and keep our chins up. The year 2010 will be a promising one, so don’t forget to start planning!

For the year 2010, we plan to expand our online community, aiming for as many as 500 regular members for the forum. Besides that, we are planning to hold some forum-based online competitions, such as the Best Forummer of the Month Award, not to mention that the i2Discovery online activity is currently in the submission period, which means you can submit your entries right now! Take note that after due consideration, the MAAYS team has decided to extend the submission period for the scientific research projects, as to let more young researchers participate in this activity that promises hands-on experience on researching and writing a report. The new deadline for submission of your research papers falls on the 31st of January 2010. You may submit your research papers to the following email address:

We thank you for your support for the MAAYS online e-Research platform. We hope this new year will be a promising one for you, Happy New Year 2010!

Best regards,

The MAAYS Team

Changes to be made

Changes to be made

As this is a multi-user version of WordPress, multi-blogs are expected. Here are a few sneak peeks to what the team is working on right now.

First of all, there will be a forum, which users and visitors can post and share content and experience in scientific research. Besides that, there will also be a lot of fun sections just to keep you entertained! Useful posts will be stickied as reference for all.

User registration will be open as soon as we are done with the testing of the site. Users who are interested in the upcoming blogging competition (more details to be revealed) may register as a blogger and start to post their research works. Rules and regulations of the competition have yet to be decided.
