Thanks for the feedback Sandy.
One of the reasons for having this thread on here was for people like you to tell us what they think of the sites, especially the bad points so that we can try to improve them.
The Chemistry Connections link has been restored to the main navigation bar, so please explore it and tell us what you think.
The virtual library link has been removed as this is only open to RSC members and many MyRSC users aren't members. Further information on it can be found here
I'll work on getting the quick start updated accordingly.
The status box is really for you to tell other people what youa re up to. Many people use it for asking questions, it's a great way for starting conversations with other users as it is visible to all.
I have also fixed the invite others link- well spotted on that one.
With regards to the other aspects you found irritating, I'll pass these comments on to our technical team and let you know what we can do about them.
Again, thanks for the feedback.
