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.
