Well at £40k you'd have thought that you wouldn't have to resort to the site search feature to find for example a CSC homepage rather than a 'this is what this CSC is according to whoever wrote the site blurb".
As a normal cynic on these subjects I have to say that I am very impressed with the site. The admin side is very cool, and we have setup our trip to Wales this weekend in the system, so we can pay for our trip online - now that is serious progress...
Thanks for the generally positive comments, the issue with IE has been solved and apologies to those it affected. We can understand you finding it annoying! If you experience any problems please contact [email protected] - we need to be aware of any issues you may be experiencing during the launch of the website.
Whilst I admit that it doesn't seem that the PhysSci website has been updated for a while I think it's a shame that the RCSU logo at the bottom of the front page links to the Life Sci webpage only. Not sure what I'd suggest as an alternative at the moment though - bit of a grey area in the crossover between FLS/FPS/FNS. I gather the wheels are in motion for a spangly RCSU site soon.
That's terrible. Just because they are not 'proper' Unions doesn't mean that they can't have a crest. Really, what harm is it going to do including them - it would look better. And where is the IC crest? I thought we were moving away from the 'corparate' look!!
Look miners, the simple fact is that last year you went from a Faculty Union to a Clubs and Societies Comittee, all be it one with a lot of traditions and a highly active one. You do not get a crest because of that change, in just the same way as the rugby club do not get a crest despite them having a long history and many traditions.
I don't particularly agree with "being more active than the rest of the university put together" What do you guys actually do? Sit around and drink? Well doesnt the sports clubs do that as well as actually doing some activities??!!
The IC crest is not the logo of ICU, which is why it isn't being used on their new website.
The RSMU / CSC was never a Faculty Union although it was once a Constituent College Union (CCU). The RSM Union voted to lose its CCU status in 2001 when the Constituent Colleges were "abolished". At the time of their abolition, CCUs had fewer powers and responsibilities than modern Faculty Unions do.
I very much sympathise with those who are irritated about how arrogant and out-of-touch some miners seem to be these days. Sure, many of them are great fun and aren?t interested in boasting about great the RSM supposedly is.
However; a few rowdy bar nights, a couple of chaotic dinners and an annual rugby match against a third rate team from Cornwall does not make the RSM CSC "more active than the rest of the university put together"!
