I agree David, and I still want my home page BACK!!!!!! PLEASE

as a computer ingenuee, I have not been able to make the page stay there, other than going through the thing that has been put in its place!!

Very not happy

Jenny Madden

**Moderator’s comment: Jenny, while the AusPharmacist page remains online in its ‘old’ format you can access it here: http://www.auspharmacist.net.au/apcold.php . The folk at APPCo are working on a ‘new’ page to replace it but this is still a work in progress – MD

Re: Pseudo changes: David Haworth

Are the new pseudo regs either/or ? My understanding is dispense as s3 on computerised and online at Project Stop as well. My compatriot has told me the Guild has informed him Project Stop is OK by itself as long as he gives it ref number 123456 or some made up number.

From the NSW Guild.

Real time Electronic recording of all over the counter Schedule 3 sales of products containing pseudo ephedrine becomes mandatory in NSW fromMarch 23. Currently the only approved electronic recording system is ProjectSTOP. Recording in ProjectSTOP meets the regulations. There is no regulatory requirement to record elsewhere, such as dispense software.

Records are retained in ProjectSTOP for 2 years on line and archived after that.

Project STOP fulfils the requirements of the regulations.

not happy either Jan! Reading the Auspharmlist posts was part of my early morning fix along with the coffee!

I renewed my premium subscription to Auspharmlist just days before the changeover. What Am I getting for my $150 subscription fee now? There don’t seem to be any premium articles, or CPD articles now. I tried to follow the link in the AJP Daily which says ‘ log in to the website ‘ using my Auspharmlist logon and password – but that didn’t work.

Also i haven’t figured out how to write a new post from the AJP Daily – but I could see how to post a reply to another post.

Lots of days I couldn’t find any posts in the newsletter either.

Mourning the old Auspharmlist with nostalgia – maybe we didn’t realize how unique and special it was until we lost it!

Help please AJP Daily.

I agree. I was holding off commenting, thinking I will get used to it, it will improve.. but no.

I don’t have time to hunting for the link to get to the forum posts. Not a happy Jan either.

and I thought I was the only one with a problem.

About a third of the daily news have not arrived and many of them are missing the posts. Today’s arrived after 6pm and I have had to use a link supplied by Mark Dunn to access the posts; the link didn’t work yesterday but today it has caught up. On 2 or 3 occasions the link states no posts available.

very, very unhappy Jan

Hear, hear David-I couldn’t agree more about the new AusPharm List and judging by the very small number of posts most pharmacists who enjoyed participating are voting with their feet, given the drastic reduction in posts!

I suppose that you have asked users of the old AusPharmList for their suggestions about improving the new version.

That is me being nice — if you created a feedback option we would pour in plenty of good ideas.
That is still me being nice — and we would tell you about the parts of the new website that could be improved.
That is me holding back — some parts of the new website simply don’t work — essential parts e.g click here doesn’t have a link..
and ever so many MORE like that.
-Peter Allen,
hoping to still be a frequent contributor once you realise that time is running out; Have your programmers sweating! it’s not a small 9-5 project.
Get the forum up and running properly. Because without the active FORUM we will stay away.

The new enterprise is challenging and you will be getting lots of feedback.

Auspharmlist was very easy to scan and quickly pick up things you needed to know or were interested in. Very little hype and unnecessary info.

My suggestion wrt the new format is to urgently reduce all the clicks through and pretty pictures. We serious pharmacists don’t need them!

I noticed some comments today about AJP Daily & NOT happy. I totally understand why they are not happy. Part of it is to do with AJP Daily taking time to establish itself and what it is good at.

AJP BAD: The old version was fuller, more news orientated and stimulated communication.

AJP GOOD: The new version is cleaner, sharper and easier to read except for it needs a means for allowing readers to read the LHS column, see below. There is onloy a small window in which you can read the full text.

I very much like the way the AJP Daily text fills a wide screen. This was a failing in the old version. Compared to the old version having to click a link to read the next story can be a pain. Having more accessible ‘Next’ buttons (with description of Next article) may solve the link clicking issue to get to the next story. The new version can use more stories, news, and blogs to fill the page but please don’t pack it in like in the old version. It wasn’t bad packed in (old version), it just for my older eyes the cleaner look is easier and refreshing. I also find the new version more stable and the email arrives more reliably than the old method. There are some definite pluses with AJP Daily. They just need a way to bring back the fun, surprise and excitement of the old version, while maintaining the authority required for seriousness based articles. They seem to be doing a good job with the latter.
