Dear OpenWetWare Community,

Thank you for your participation in the OWW improvement survey. We thank you for all your valuable input toward making OpenWetWare one of the most effective tools to facilitate your research.

We are thrilled to announce the winners of the OWW survey:

  • Two $25 Amazon gift cards, at random, to two participants who completed the survey questions:
    1. Marko Dolinar, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
    2. Leanna Morinishi, MIT, USA
  • One $50 Amazon gift card, to a participant who gave the best original suggestion(s) for OWW based on usefulness and feasibility:
    1. Lee Farrand, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea

We will contact you individually to arrange the delivery of the prizes. Congratulations to the three of you!

It has been a challenging process to choose the winner for the top prize due to the high number of great comments we received. Among these valuable suggestions, Lee Farrand suggested that “On the discussion pages, authors could have ‘reputation points,’ allowing us to see who is rated by the community as being a reliable source of information.” Such an approach could contribute to a system for scoring/ranking protocols and other sources of information, a feature that many of you have requested. OWW contributors could increase their reputation points in many ways, including by other users voting their comments as being valuable.

Once again, thank you so much for your participation and valuable input. We wish you a productive year filled with new ideas and discoveries.
