Welcome to the YESS community member platform

The YESS community online communication platform for our members is

  • a non-public, moderated online community network
  • open and free for interested users
  • moderated, which also means that every registration is going to be approved, before accounts can be activated
  • a network platform that enables registered users to create a custom profile and to communicate, network and interact with other members of the community

Please enjoy, post, connect to people and join any group you are interested in!

To enhance connection potential, please ask yourself:

  • Can people find you (i.e., have you updated your profile with a picture)?
  • Are you in your local group (i.e., have you tried out which local group fits best for you or founded one for your region)?
  • Have you looked through your digest settings / profile to see if everything is the way you want it to be?

Some tips:

If you have more questions, feel free to send a mail to the Webmaster (or post a question in the general group).

  • Use the top bar menus to the right  (Howdy, Patti Smith) to navigate easily through your member pages.
  • See the Toolbar at the top? All important things can be found under Howdy, Patti Smith
    • Edit your profile: Howdy, Patti Smith -> Profile -> Edit
    • Change your password: Howdy, Patti Smith -> Settings -> General
    • View your messages: Howdy, Patti Smith -> Messages
    • Log out: Howdy, Patti Smith -> Log Out
  • About your Profile:
    • The Profile tab shows the information you provided at the log-in process
    • Here we distinguish public and internal profile entries. Public are your Full NameCareer StageCurrent Institution, and City, Country
    • your Full Name is independent of your username (i.e., your login name). You can change the former (Patti Smith) but not the latter (pattismith).
    • Try it out and view a profile as logged-in/logged-out user
  • About Groups:
    • Every member is assigned to the default group YESS
    • You can request a membership for any other group with the Request Membership button on the group page
    • Each group member can write a post
    • Only group admins can write emails to all group members
  • About Messages:
    • To send a message to other users go to their profile and use the Send Private Message button. Alternatively you can use their usernames (see URL, e.g., pattismith) when you write messages from your Messages – Compose tab. Using the Full Name does not work!
    • To reply to a message, open it and scroll down to Send a Reply
    • You can mention other users in your message using @username (e.g., “I met @pattismith at AGU last December”). The mentioned user, of course,  gets a notification.
  • Questions? Feel free to send a mail to the webmaster
