We’ve updated the Actuarial Science Universities Google Map

Posted under Announcements

Actuarial Science Universities MapThe title says it all. The Actuarial Science University Map is now updated with a new look. We’ve also added our friends over at the University of Florida Actuarial Science Program. If we’ve overlooked your school, send Tom a PM or an email and ask him to include your school on the map. Be sure to include your schools information, such as the name, website, departmental contact along with contact information such as email, phone number, and address.

It’s still a work in progress. The list of schools that is on the right hand side of the screen will be collapsible and if I can think of any more bells and whistles to add to it, you can be sure to see those on there soon, as well.

Help test the new beta version of the Actuarial Outpost’s discussion forum

Posted under Announcements

Actuarial Outpost Forum SnapshotHello Outposters,

You can now test out the new layout for the actuarial discussion forum. You can follow this link to check out version 2 of the forum default, or you could go to the discussion board, scroll to the bottom of the page, and choose “Default Style v2.0” from the drop-down list in the footer. Either way, try it out, see if you like it, and let me know if anything needs to be fixed (or if it just doesn’t look right, or perhaps an idea to make it better ).

Currently the drop-down tool bar has no functionality, but over the next few days, you will notice little buttons appearing here and there as I make changes. If you have any suggestions, you can always add a comment to this post, send me a PM (Tom), or send me an email at tom [the at symbol thing]

Hope you like the new look of the Actuarial Outpost!

Posted under Announcements

Hello there!

After a lot of long hours, cups of coffee, and a few tears this is what I came up with. Currently the Demo Access and the Quick Tour are not available, but they should be in about a week. You can still use our Actuarial Discussion Forum just as you always have, it’s just a new look.

Soon, the discussion forum will follow a similar design, though version 1 of the Outpost will remain as an option for viewing the forums. Keep your eyes open for new things here and there. Though we’ve taken a big step today with the new design, there will be more features added to the Outpost over the next few weeks. I hope everyone enjoys (or at least isn’t too bothered by) the new design of the Actuarial Outpost.
