Welcome to the first issue of the 'h2g2 POST'. Every week we will be updating our pages to give you informative and interesting articles on what is going on, in and around h2g2. In the main the POST will be a community paper, very much like your Local Rag. Unlike a local paper it will also, to a smaller degree, include world news where you will be able to read about topical issues and talk to people who are on the scene.
This is where you come in...When h2g2 first started the TDV team produced all the Guide Entries to give examples of what the Guide should look like. We, at this time, are in the same boat and
A page has been set up called 'Never Ending Edit' where you can post your reports and views to us. We have a great team waiting for you now, so let us know what you have seen! It could be something that tickled your fancy; maybe an interesting forum you would like to direct others to, a page that you have read and feel others may also enjoy it. Is something happening in your part of the world that you feel able to report on? Don't forget, if it is on h2g2 to include the addresses/links and supply your personal details too, your nickname and home page number. Remember, if you are a Researcher, you are also a POST Reporter and we look forward to hearing from you, no matter how small or large your report is.
All the links on this POST front page open new windows. This has been done because a number of the articles are held off site and, once you have read one, you will only have to close the window to enable you to click on the next one which you wish to read. It is a lot faster for you that way, as the POST front page does not have to be reloaded every time you want to get back to it.
The current editor would like to point out that a lot of the above mentioned features are no longer available as we are now hosted entirely on h2g2.
There are a number of articles and features lined up for you to read... just follow the links and enjoy!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have worked so hard to make this venture a success. A special thanks goes to the POSTresearcher team for a great job - Pastey you have been a marvel for putting all of our ideas into practice. Peta also gets a special thank you, as do the h2g2 team for the help and support given to this venture. It has not been easy!
