A note on joining: I must know you in person before you can join, sorry. If you would like to join, please make sure to provide a somewhat valid name in your userinfo. This means that you prolly have to go to CHS (how else would I know you?), though a few exceptions exist. Keep in mind, however, that you can post w/out joining, and that you can add the community to your friends list ("watch" it) as well.
Hi everyone. This site is designed to help you with any chemistry questions that you might have. Anything goes, as long as it's appropriate. Some rules:
If you don't already have one, get a LJ username. The process is fairly simple.
upon completion of the process, check your e-mail and click on the link in the e-mail to confirm your email address.
Go to the Edit Info page and provide as much information as you wish. However, at least put your first name and last initial.
In addition, on that same page, make sure that the following items are checked:
Enable message boards
Get message board replies
If you're an AOL user, be sure to add the address "firstname.lastname@example.org" to your Address Book, so that LJ emails don't get marked as spam
If you want, look over the other options and edit them to your taste.
Once you've done that, come back here and click on the "Post question" link on the left side.
For solutions to the electronic HW (Howson's class), all you need to put is the question number and your specific question. For all other questions, please be sure to provide enough information for me to be able to answer your question.
If you see a question that you can answer, go right ahead! The idea behind this is that everyone helps everyone else, so there's no need to wait for me to answer all questions.
Above all, be nice and courteous!
Any problems, reply to the very first post; you can do so anonymously, w/out a username.
Once you're all set up and the note at the top doesn't apply to you, join the community. This allows you to read and comment on "protected" entries and lets me know that you're an active reader.
