subforums for units

MargaMarga Experienced MentorRegistered Posts: 981
hi

i think it would be most useful if under each forum in the students area there were subforums in which to talk of an specific unit , ie in foundation , two subforums with unit 30 and unit 31

in intermidiate subforums with unit 6 , unit 5 , unit 32 , etc....


instead to flicking through all the posts?

just an idea

    yeah agree 100%!! At uni there was a lecturer who had his own site and he had the units split up seperately - makes it easier and also a lot more professional as it tends to be a mess and i dont mean that to sound disrespectful - just you could be ploughing through pages of irrelevant stuff and it takes time and doesnt really help the studying process.

    Thats a really good idea :)

    I think that's a good idea too but not sure what you would do with existing posts. It would be quite a job to go through and move everything to new categories. It's a pity no-one thought of it at the time of the last big re-jigging (to use a technical term) of the site a few years ago.

    Something I've seen on other forums is the ability to tag posts which would make searching for posts on a specific topic or unit easier. Don't know if the vBulletin software supports this but I wouldn't be surprised.

    well maybe just lets say in foundation have three subforums

    Old topics/threads
    UNIT 30 -IAC
    UNIT 31 - Work skills

    Or even divided by the route you are doing

    NVQ
    vs
    Diploma ....


    Old topics can always be collated altoghether in the Miscellaneous forum LOL

    It doesn't help that there are some who feel they have to open a brand new thread each and every time they want to write something instead of just joining existing threads on the same topics. A good example will be to see how many separate DFS threads are started after this week's sittings.

    LOL totally agree.

    I find it impossible to visit all the PEV threads.

    I think it's the 'new' folk that come only at exam time and then back @ results time lol

    Ah yes, those who come twice yearly, often posting overly hysterical comments questioning the marital status of the chief examiners parents, how he should be shot, stabbed and bludgeoned because he dared to set something they hadn't learned parrot fashion and previous papers weren't like that, how they went to pieces during the exam, how they've one million percent failed, how they'll abuse regular forum posters, how they'll become almost suicidal for two months only to find out in approx eight weeks time they passed after all, what a relief, now on to the next level etc etc.

    Repeat ad nauseum throughout all accountancy qualifications, presumably up to infinity and beyond...
  • AK002AK002 Font Of All Knowledge Registered Posts: 2,492
    Yes lol.

    Now just imagine if each and every new person created a thread about said exam they sat, and voilà!

    Just make sure you open up a minimum of ten new threads with a different, single sentence question for each one. Then repeatedly post your question throughout each of the different forums followed by increasingly desperate demands wanting to know why someone hasn't answered any of them even though they've been only there for all of five minutes. Top it all off with an unhealthy attitude by disregarding all advice you've been given alongside lavish helpings of rudeness to people who've taken the time to respond to your queries even though they didn't have to. Hey you've ignored 'em anyway, so what's to lose by questioning their own abilities and experiences even though they may often be considerable? You're right everyone else is wrong and as long as you hold true to that belief you'll be okay, it's always worked in the past which is why you are where you are today, cool.

    Indeed it is. Just casually post lemming-like on the end of every thread and you'll soon be up there with scouse Mark in the four thousands...

    I shall consider it...

    Work vs posting lots of nonsense on the forums.... See work would still win, no matter how boring, I wouldn't keep my job, if I didn't do any work anymore..
