Tide, who asked you?
- For Teachers
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?
Tide, who asked you?
I'm a new member, English teacher, for five years in primary, one year in secondary school, graduated from English Language and Literature of the university.I like this site very much.I improve my English.I read the threads, explanations almost every day.And I try to write and reply.It's very useful for me. I didn't come upon any difficulties or unexpectedly thing up to now.Thank you very much for everything.
Now, I have no idea, but if I have, I will exactly suggest.
I'm very pleased to be a junior member now.Yupppiiii
teacher can u help me ??
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.
Lemka, please check your email; I have written to you about changing your name.
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.
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.
