Our comments seem to be picking up now. The common theme seems to be students trying to make contact with other students studying a particular subject or living in a particular halls of residence.The trouble is that people can post comments on the Warwick page, but if it is directed at other friends i.e. other freshers, the only way they can reply is:
- Post a comment back – which would result in a massive list of comments; or
- Add the person they want to speak to as a friend and then comment on that persons page – taking the discussion away from the Warwick page.
There isn’t a facility for forum chats which I think is greatly missed on myspace. Can anyone suggest a way that I might improve discussion between ‘friends’ on the university myspace page?
I am attending a webinar tonight which is primarily about graduates associations and how they can use myspace and facebook to maintain a dialogue with young alumni and involve graduates in the alumni association. Maybe I will find the answer there?

Hooray – I have just approved our 100th friend on MySpace.
The page was created on 22nd August ‘06 so for just 24 days I don’t think that is bad going.

Thats (roughly) 51 profile views and 4 (and a bit) friends a day!
N.B. I haven’t added anybody as our friend, that is just from other people adding us as a friend.
Just for continuity purposes, I suppose I should mention what else I learnt on my Netskills training course yesterday…
Positioning with CSS
Positioning: Static, Relative, Absolute, Fixed
Alternate Layouts, Standards and Browser Issues
Why use CSS?
Standards and Validation
To be honest, I had kind of turned my brain off by the last session – my head was starting to hurt!!
However, all in all it was a very useful day, I wasn’t as confused as I expected to be, a lot of it was actually rather interesting, the practical tasks were kind of fun and I was rather impressed by what could be achieved with CSS.

Well I am currently on a CSS course at Nottingham University.
It’s actually not as tricky as I thought it would be given my knowledge of html is very basic.
So far we have learnt…
Internal Style Sheets
External Style Sheets
CSS for Colours and Fonts
< div > and < span > tags
The Box Model
Width and Centering
More stuff about Boxes…
And now we are about to have lunch… phew!
Gah – maybe it is tricker than I thought… just writing what we have done here started to affect my formatting!
You can’t go throwing < div > and < span > tags around!
