    Re: Help with the forum

    Yes,the lady asked me ,too.She wanted me to help her transfere a larg amount of money.but I didn't.I said her it was not intelectual...
    Maybe she was lokking for someone she could trust.And who is more reliable than a teacher?But one can not trust everybody to do9 whatever she wants !

    But sometimes you can't find sb. in the forum,you can mail him/her and he/she notices and contacts you.this is a good property,isn't it?

    I'm very satisfied with your forum, in particular the "Edit& writing essay" forum, it's very useful ... All I suggest that need more some teachers to correct a mess of member's essay .

    thank you

    Re: Help with the forum

    Hi

    Can you please help changing my Username (nickname)?

    I would like to change it to "loveenglish".

    Reason for change request: This username "LEMKA" is also used in a number of other forums so I am afraid it may cause confusion.

    Thank you.

    Nothing particular about joining the forum, though I have already mentioned to Tdol my thoughts on adding a new category of members: Retired.

    This thought is rather on being in the forum/threads. It seems to me that a minority of members post their questions in inappropriate places. There is no malice aforethought, but it is mildly annoying to crotchety old has-beens like me. It's possible that such members miss out on answers from people who look only in areas that interest them.

    If you are producing a new guide, perhaps you could consider some additional guidelines on selecting the appropriate place to post questions - and also on looking back through recent threads to see if the question has already been answered AND (my normal fault - I can't stop once I've started) a heavy-handed pointer to FAQs - AND a recommendation to break multi-question postings into separate, aptly subject-titled, posts AND - OK, I'll stop.

    Almost. Just want to add that I continue to be impressed by the quality of UsingEnglish.com. I wish it had been around when I was a beginner and/or I wish I'd discovered it while I was still actually in the classroom. My congratulations, and thanks, to all involved in producing this.

    Re: Help with the forum

    I know what you mean- we can move threads and do, but it's hard to get them all. I am afraid that this is something that is going to be hard to deal with- people don't read FAQs and not that many search before posting. When I see forums that refuse to answer the same question twice, I feel a mixture of envy and dislike- I admire the clarity, but feel there's unfriendliness too. Also, getting rid of the flow of spam always comes first, and we spend a ridiculous amount of time getting rid of it.



    FAQs, RTFM, etc, are all great in theory, but practice does tend to show a different picture. If anyone has a workable idea to get people to read them and comply without being authoritarian, don't post it here because you will be able to sell the idea for billions.
