Welcome to the new and improved USWBSI site! The site is now using content management software to bring the Scab Community all of the original data from the old USWBSI site and to offer a suite of services that we hope you will find useful.
These new services can be accessed from the left menu under the "Application Menu" header. Each of those links is a small application that runs on the server and is used through your web browser. You simply need to login with the user/password you registered with the site to take full advantage of those applications. If you would like to become a registered user, please contact the NFO at email@example.com. If you are new to the USWBSI, please indicate why you are insterested in becoming a registered user. If you are not a registered user, you may still use many of these applications without logging in but you will only have a limited set of features available.
To those of you not familiar with these applications, below is a brief description of each application:
|Discussion Board:||This is a public forum for discussion on a wide variety of Scab related topics. Messages can be posted to the appropriate category and other community members can add additional posts in reply. This allows for a public conversation about your topic.|
|USWBSI Blog:||This application is similar to the discussion board but instead of facilitating public discussions it is mostly used to post information and updates on various topics that don't need discussion. Think of it as an electronic bulletin board.|
|USWBSI Member Chat:||Use this to chat with other members who may be logged in to the USWBSI site. Members simply click this link to enter that chat room and participate in the live discussion in real time.|
|Photo Library:||We have provided a space for users to post and share their scab related images. The library is broken up into many relevant image categories for you to use. During upload you can title your image and provide a brief description of it.|
|EPS System:||An application developed by the USWBSI to ease the submission and review of pre-proposals.|
Submitters: Click on the 'Submitters' link to upload and edit your pre-proposal files, track your submission progress, and access your pre-proposals and supporting documents.
Reviewers: Use the 'Reviewers' link if you are part of the pre-proposal review team. You will be presented with a list of the pre-proposals you have been chosen to review along with all of the supporting documents required to complete the review.
|My Scab Documents:||This application provides users with personal online file storage. Any type of file can be uploaded to your space or other folders that you may have permission to edit. Your files can be as private or public as you like. By using the options link for each file you can specify users and/or groups to have read and/or write access in any way you want. The default setting for uploaded files is read and edit only by you.|
|My Scab Calendar:||A listing of events that the site administrators have determined to be useful to the community. The calendar can be viewed in a variety of way including weekly, monthly, and list format just to name a few. Logged in users can add their own content.|
