It's definitely going to make navigation easy and will save time too.

Some other ways to achieve the same thing:
1. How about specifying unique colours to subject title for different sections?

OR

2. Specifying rule for posting questions.

For instance, Sentence Correction questions will carry a subject title like this:
SC - Unique_Word_To_Identify_That_Question

for ex., SC - Acid Rain

But the problem here will be to constantly check for violation.

But moderators will face this problem with any method that they finally chose to apply ( if at all it happens :) ). It'll more depend on poster's self-discipline. For new joiners, this general rule can be posted on the joining page.


Regards,
Technext

Open Verbal/Maths quiz

Starting an open weekly quiz in Verbal (SC/CR/RC) or Maths (DS/PS) for all GmatClub members.

This is itself a new and uniques step to make such forums more useful for its members. This will give a reason why GC is the best of best.

We can approach this by:
1. Broadcast an intimation mail to all members for registering for the quiz or flashing about this quiz on the top of all web pages of GmatClub.
2. Fix a certain time period during which members can give the quiz, as per their convenience.
3. Don't show the result immediately rather wait till that time period is over. This will add more fun to the quiz. After the time period publish the result. Members can access their performamnce.
4. Don't remove that quiz online. Let other members, who missed the quiz, and new members to take the quiz and check their performance.

Think about this initiative in terms of:
1. New members to GmatClub
2. Traffick generation
3. Competitive advantage
4. Popularity and Uniqueness

My 2 cents, hope this will be very helpful for all.

We need to have buckets in the site. which means that when I am surfing the site and I Like a particular topic I should be able to add it to my bucket (or cart or Favourites).

Since there is so much material out here I tend to get lost, usually I keep picking and posting urls to my email account. But then again, there I need to search them out of several thousand emails.

Whenever I am on the site for more info. I will look for it, find it and if it fits my need and I would want to review it later, it would go into my favs' bucket so that I dont have to search for that thread. I can go there directly in my fav's.

Later we can allow users to create categories for buckets so that they can organize/collect information in the format they would like to keep. This will also solve problem that I have seen people posting like arranging section in order of difficultly or 600-700 range or Verbal or SC, RC, CR categorizations.

GMAT Club can periodically review everyone's bucket or categorization in buckets to automatically organize content as shown on the club from this information.

I would appreciate if initially we can start with buckets/cart/fav's.

By the way thanks for creating a free GMAT retail store for preparation.

To Whom It May Concern:

Received the email saying I haven't logged in for a while. I do plan to continue to use the site, but I have about a year to take the test and will probably not begin studying hard until I return from Afghanistan.

As it pertains to the site and potential improvements, I found it very frustrating when people did not post the OA and OE for questions. I mostly use the site as a question bank and to have people post questions and then say "Discuss first, then OA" is rather off putting. While it's admirable that people want to have a discussion, it is a fact that some people just want to work problems.

Recommendation: a question can't be posted to the site unless it is accompanied by the OA, the OE, and the source (OG, MGMAT, Peterson's, etc.). This allows people to just answer questions and move on or, alternatively, answer questions and then ask for further OEs in other people words. Everybody wins. Additionally, people can see the quality of the questions they will encounter should they elect to purchase additional study resources. As someone that has previously taken the GMAT, I can say that there's a wide variety of study material out there and stuff like Peterson's is in no way representative of what people will actually encounter on the test. By posting the source of the question people know before they buy what kind of questions they will encounter.

Hello,
I have a suggestion regarding "Calling all fall xxxx AAAAAAAA Applicants" threads

Sometimes I wish to visit the prior years threads to get some specific information and I find that there are like a 100 pages and it's a pain to jump just 5 pages at a time! For example, just now, I wanted to know when the interview calls start rolling for Tuck in the Jan round, but I find that there are 107 pages in the fall 2011 applicants thread and I am having to skim through most pages till I reach the date I am interested in.

I was wondering if we could've either of the following -
The 1st thread be edited such that there would be links to the 1st message about an interview invite, ding, admit, financial aid, admit weekend, etc. (Basically the important milestones in an applicants thread)

Or a way to skip the forum to a particular date I am interested in, like 01/05/2011

Cheers!

Can we change the color of "Admitted from WL" in user profiles/stats in first posts of school threads? Black to me says submitted. I feel like Admit from WL should still be some shade of green :)

So I noticed the chat activity is quite pedestrian at times and I wonder (and apologize if this has been suggested) if it might benefit from being open on the side of any page? So like the white portion on the right hand side of the screenshot attached as an example but you get the idea of having it open naturally for people on various pages rather than a single dedicated room that takes you away from other content.

My suggestion would be have it naturally logged in to once you log into your forum account otherwise have it automatically generate a "guest##" tag. I think the chat is a brilliant aspect, I think it could benefit from the natural influx of users by adding it to the majority of pages on the side allowing people to pop in and out and already be logged in when they log into forum account (assuming this is feasible but I feel like I've seen it on a few sites).

Thank you for the suggestion. We are working on a new version of the chat that is integrated with the forum and we hope it will be more visible/effective. We have not considered posting it on every page but we have been thinking about showing a list of people currently active in the chat.

Thank you for the suggestion - makes sense.
Let me consult with the moderators and Board of Directors to see what will be the best approach to this process and I will be back with you! Anyone has a thought? Chime in!

honestly it will be far easy to navigate if we can have separate forums for SC,RC,CR, DS,PS, or even GPREP Qs
wish you and the forum good luck!!

Nitya34 and Technext, thank you for your suggestions - we are moving forward with them.

Moderators cast their votes and we proceed to user voting. We will start with the verbal forum and give it a try for 30 days. If after that period we do not see complaints or issues with the change, we will start transitioning the math forum to the proposed structure.

Thank you for your suggestions :idea:

I think adding a spell check feature is a good addition. I know most of us might not do a sanity check for spelling before posting. A spell check feature will prevent any embarrassment to the careless posters (like me)

It already has spell check feature. The red underline that shows up while posting, that is sign that you spelled something wrong.

And you have to click submit button twice if there is any red underline in the body of the message.

Hi,

My suggestion is to have sub forums such as Data Sufficiency Questions and Regular Math Questions in Math Section. The reason I am suggesting this is because:

(1) Majority of the people studying for GMAT struggle with DS and it will be easier if we had direct access only to DS questions to practice. We will not have to search thru every page to find a DS question.

(2) I think the sub forums idea in Verbal section turned out to be great. It is a hit. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the sub forums in Verbal. We should have something similar in Math section too.

Thanks

Sorry for taking a while to get back with you.
Thank you for the suggestion - which page specifically are you talking about?

Forum view - list of discussion topics
Topic view - list of posts in a thread


Sorry, I was travelling so could not reply earlier.

Topic View - would be best, you don't have to scroll down each time you want to move between pages (i.e. active topics).

I proposed the same thing some time ago, but it seems I've done it in the wrong place - in the Off topic forum. Now I'll try my luck here.

I would like to propose that we create separate subforum for TOEFL. At present, international applicants ar forced to use some other forums. While some of the forums are good, they just don't look nice and I'm not used to interface. In addition, I preffer to discuss this topic with "familiar" people, people I'm already speaking with on various subjects regarding MBA applications.

I know there is many "cons" to my propsal and that one of the major would be that this is the forum that has GMAT in the focus. That way, I understand you are trying to stay focused and do one job (GMAT) well instead of trying to perform many tasks but none successfuly.

Well, GMATclub has grown up, it has overgrown GMAT and became a real Business school forum instead of just single exam forum. In that sense, I think it would be wise to have everything one needs to enter b-school in one place, instead to have many members that are forced to look for other forums for some important issues. TOEFL is certainly such an issue for ever growing number of international students.

Thank you for the suggestion - this is a very new idea.

Can you please outline what value it will have compared to the current system of one thread per question? I am not sure what would motivate this change.

Also have you seen this done on any other forums/discussion boards (any type, not necessarily GMAT)


See, currently for every problem user opens a new thread. Just after a day or two, it does not have any value. Though, that problem is solved by 3-4 people, after a day or two that thread becomes pretty old & I doubt if anyone cares to check old threads. Most of the people would be looking on threads of Page-1 only.

Now, making a dedicated thread for, let's say, PS section, I can have all PS problems in one single thread. People who have queries can put their examples there. Also, if there are any good questions that help us understand basic concepts, we can put them there.

The discussion & detailed explanation of problems is something that adds value. It will be about thinking process. I guess a lot people can help from this. :D

Also, it will reduce server space required. :)

Yes, I have seen it on other forums. I will PM you the links. I am active member of that forum too. :P
