New Platform Help: How do I...?

Hi! I can't seem to find the private messages in the new platform. Is it something that's not part of the site anymore?

Hi Ileana, 

Yes, this functionality is coming, it'll be rolled out in the next few weeks. I am actually super excited about how it's working (more live chat than DM system), but we are still going through final testing before we're happy releasing it out into the wild. So hang tight - you'll see message buttons pop up throughout the site and a new icon on your top menu when it's live. 

Steph  

Hats off to your hard work, Steph! The new platform looks amazing. I'm excited to start exploring. :)

Amazing @StephODonnell   Looking great!

But I had a really odd problem so begin with.

I went through the process to reset my password, and it all looked good. I logged off and couldn't login again!!

I realised that I could login OK on Mozilla Firefox, it was just Chrome.  Grrrrr....

Finally after I cleared my browsing history it logged me correctly.  I guess it was not letting go of WIldlabs 1.0 so easily.

Hi Stef (and others), I've been using old Natural resource maps from the 1970's to look at the habitats and resources that are identified within protected areas, most of which we haven't been able to survey in the future to help in a management planning workshop so that we can better understand what assessments need to be done in these areas for effective management of the resources.
some of the data isn't digitized as yet, 

Heya @LindyClydeKnowles - so nice to see you! This is super interesting, thanks for sharing :) 

Some cool stuff happening over on twitter too:

@LiamSeaDickson I bet you did something exciting this week 

— Stuart Negus (@Stu_707) March 11, 2022

I had the opportunity to present my research using #drones4good to MPs at the Houses of Parliament, and talk about the importance of conserving our marine environment! 

I was a finalist in the #STEMforBRITAIN competition - it was an incredible experience! pic.twitter.com/W8cdW3IqCg

Hello!

I have been watching GPS collars carefully as their are nearing their time of drop-off. We are testing burst fixes on these last few weeks of their 2.5 year deployment. So I am keeping a close eye on the battery levels so they will not die before beeing dropped off.

Also, I have been cooperating with Tobias from the Firetail acceleration and tracking visualization software to get support of ACC data from our Vectronic Vertex Plus collars.

Finally I have testing IP security cameras to see if they could be suitable to monitor our arctic fox dens in Greenland.
