The Dipterists Forum group on the NBN Gateway

If you want better access to the Diptera datasets uploaded onto the NBN Gateway then you should join the Dipterists Forum group there. Instead of requesting better access to all of them, one by one, joining the group gives you instant full access to all of them.
Register with the NBN Gateway if you haven't already, then apply for membership of the group.
The datasets in that group are currently the field weeks for 1999, 2000 and 2001 plus the Stilt and Stalk Fly recording scheme.
I'm currently working on the DF Charnwood records from last year and will be adding those in a litttle while.
Please note that Stuart Ball manages the Hoverfly dataset separately.

Would you like to see more DF datasets on the site?
Tell us.

Re: The Dipterists Forum group on the NBN Gateway

Darwyn, I have had a good look, but can't see how to join the group.  I am registered on the gateway and can see how to get better access to the individual datasets.  Please give a hint on group membership to this IT beginner here!

Re: The Dipterists Forum group on the NBN Gateway

There are currently 14 members and 2 administrators (me and Stuart) in the Dipterists Forum group.
My sincere apologies to anyone who tried to join and failed during the period that I have been transferring the DF group from work (where I no longer do) to home.
Please try again, the NBN Gateway requests will now come to my home.

Re: The Dipterists Forum group on the NBN Gateway

Dead simple to join.

1. "Log in" (if you are not registered then this will take you to screens that will allow you to register)
2. Select "My account"
3. At bottom left select "Organisations" "apply for membership"
4. Click on the "apply" text beside the organisation you wish to join (whoah! it doesn't appear on my list smile)
5. NBN Gateway then sends me (and possibly Stuart as well) an automated email request alerting me to the fact that someone wants to join (it also sends me a nag later and after that, if I've still not done it, Oliver Grafton metaphorically grabs me by the collar yikes)
6. If I don't know you I check with Mick Parker that you truly are a member (thanks Mick) 
7. I go to NBN Gateway and operate the controls which add you to the group

Voila!

Re: The Dipterists Forum group on the NBN Gateway

Thanks Darwyn.  Done! It just never occurred to me to look in 'my account' for how to join the Dipterists Forum user group.  I think they could do with some simple instructions like yours for people like me on the NBN website.
