  4. Simple way to check story has been added

    I added my story this morning, but now I can't find it in the listing. If there's a delay before it appears in the search results, could there be some notice to that effect?

    Or, could an e-mail be sent to confirm that the story has been accepted?

  6. Allow users to edit post titles

    I accidentally submitted a post title with "Laoratory of Life Sciences Electronics" instead of "Laboratory". Can I fix the typo? I can't find a way to to this on the site (and, as noted by other, the lik to the post is not immediately working).

    Thanks very much for your feedback. This is an excellent idea, and I’ll add it to our list of improvements to the directory. Unfortunately we are limited in what we can do and how fast we can do it due to a lack of budget, but I am hoping to focus on improving the directory over the coming months. Meantime, I will see if I can fix the typo for you.

  7. why

    Still having fun?

  9. Fix tag cloud of specialisms on the home page, phrases like Artificial intelligence give no result

    It currently adds a hyphen between words, which means that it returns no results.

  13. Stop moving the date

    It's really difficult to get traction on a holiday if it keeps moving. In the last 3 years, it's gone from Oct 7, to Oct 16 to this year Oct 15. I was hoping there was some sort of logic to this (3rd Tuesday? Nope!) but I can't find it. If I'm to share the day with people, I want them to be able to add it to their calendars and carry it forward year after year. I can't do that now.

  18. Wrong URL in "heroine" form?

    I added myself to the "heroine" database and when I went to edit it, I saw that eclau.ch (one of my sites) had replaced climbtothestars.org that I thought I entered. Browser quirk or weird autofill funkiness?
