      Dear members,

      Firstly, I'd just like to request that you give us a "like" on Facebook. Please click the massive button below to go to our Facebook page where you can do this. Every "like" makes a big difference and helps to build our community, and get those difficult mechanical engineering questions answered.

      Secondly,
      there are a couple of brand new features of this forum I'd like to introduce to you:

      1) Blogs: Why not start your very own one right here in the Mechanical Design Forum? Just click the "Blogs" link on the toolbar above and get started. All we ask is, a) please try to keep it relevant to mechanical engineering, and, b) no promotional material!

      2) Groups: I'm a big fan of this facility! Here you can join groups, start (and manage) your own group, invite members to join, have group discussions etc.

      I hope you like these features. Please let me know what you think. In the meantime, below are a few choice discussion topics for you to check out.

      Best regards,
      Gareth
