>Dear Members of Arabidopsis community,
>
>The discussion about the name change for Plant Physiology is now on 
>the WEB. People who are against it are very active and are taking 
>the time to complete the survey. Melissa Junior is in the process of 
>posting the responses that were sent to Nancy Winchester from the 
>original survey. Over there, many people sided with the name change. 
>It takes time to post those votes that were sent to Nancy, because 
>Melissa has to ask every single person for his/her permission to 
>post the vote on the WEB. So, we do have many more strong, positive 
>votes and they will be posted. However, I know that many of you have 
>not expressed your views and I'm writing to strongly urge you to do 
>so (please, go to home page, #1,below) . I believe the consensus of 
>opinion is that the name should be changed to better represent the 
>interests of the membership, but we can't sit back and wait for a 
>miracle to bring about change. So, whether you are for or against, I 
>hope you will register your opinion.
>Thank you very much,
>Natasha

>Here's an explanation of how the discussion form works:
>1.  Users go to 
><http://www.aspb.org/plantphysnamechange>http://www.aspb.org/plantphysnamechange
>
>
>
>2.  They can click on the link 
>"<http://www.aspb.org/plantphysnamechange/responses.cfm>read what 
>your colleagues have written" or they can fill out the survey form 
>and submit feedback themselves.
>
>
>
>3.  If they submit feedback, it goes into a database and the user 
>gets a little 'thank you' page
>
>
>
>4.  Melissa then has an admin page at 
><http://www.aspb.org/admin/plantphys>http://www.aspb.org/admin/plantphys 
>to use to view all submitted feedback.  For each piece of feedback, 
>she has the option to 'post' it to the web so that it shows up when 
>people click on the 
>"<http://www.aspb.org/plantphysnamechange/responses.cfm>read what 
>your colleagues have written" link.  By default, all feedback is not 
>posted until she selects for it to be.  She can also 'take down', 
>'edit' or 'delete' a piece of feedback.
