I'm adding a request to address the strict formality involved. Chopped from this
(provided for the Team Leader's input, and responses to errors in research amongst team members. Basically a label to post under for team members,
during a project, for input from other team members, stating information that's relevant to the project.)
I've used HEADLINE tags, as a demarcation for information, as I think it is a good way to denote sub-categories of research.
It would be interesting to see the Errata headline tag used amongst team members, as it would allow them to share information within a project, and
allow for posts that are relevant to the topic. It seems to me, at least, that it would allow a more collaborative effort WITHIN a project, without
detracting from the project at hand.
Anyway, the basic idea is that a member of a research project can comment on another's post, as long as they preface the comment with Errata.
For example, in an imaginary project, say alien abduction:
Participant A: I conclude that aliens are infiltrating my knickers, and I have photos that I took.
Participant B: Errata: Please post those pics, participant A.
Participant A: Errata: I don't know how to upload them.
Participant B: Errata: I'll send you a u2u, to figure it out.
Participant A: Errata: Thanks! Back to the project.
That's a very crude example, but it does indicate that discourse between researchers in a thread could be viable. Of course, it's just a
Please take it under consideration that members on a research group may make comments in their own thread about the topic using the Errata prefix for
posts. It'd be REALLY helpful for the Project Leader to posit comments without disrupting the thread, and we would know it's just a comment or
suggestion within said thread.
Just my thoughts.
