I too have found that the really golden nuggets of info have fallen prey to the quicksand of information here. There is a lot of peer reviewed information but it gets buried as new posts drive it down.
I am not sure how that could be solved except some sort of internal ranking system that ranks each post according to usefulness and then somehow filing the stuff in order of relevence (or usefulness). I wanted to do one more slide show style run and document it but my slide shows get buried like others do. Since we tend to disagree on some points it would be tougher to rank these as usefule or not but it also occurred to me that this site has a huge volume of useful facts but it is tedious to track it down despite the overall excellent design of the layout…
Perhaps we can have featured articles/guests that could be pinned and highlight the work and thoughts of another. If such an article was pinned up high for a week or so it might find many more readers and especially if it is cross referenced back to other future4200 posts.ł
This site is great and irregardless of who is participating this site represents peer reviewed information and debate far better than any other site out there. I have read now hundreds of pages, references, diagrams and have exhauahsted all I can fin on researchgate.net, chempub, and the scores of online courses offere now throw universities. I subscribe to a noted chromatography forum as well as a litany of youtube subscritptions to online course from MIT and a slew of others. I have a range to judge.
Hands down this site presents far and away more accurace and useful information than the more esoteric sites. Within groups like reasearchgate.net they are hobbled from making generalizations or speculation or even anecdotal evidence. This means that after a very long time that then information can be vetted. However the difference between folks looking here and folks participating in research papers is the folks here are seeking practical answers for problems today and not endless debate with techno talk which often has no higher quality of data than that shown here. I recently had an emergency room doctor post a comment encouraging me to continue because he had never seen the kind of techniques shown. My point is that it would be nice to see a mechanism to pull out the more complete and “future4200 vetted” information.
