This Kudos system is pretty cool, I had no idea what it was. I do feel appreciated and now I can also really appreciate the people that are helpful to me. I didn't know I could do that till today, but will start from now.

Hi bb,

I tried doing this - "You can add schools and fill out your GMAT Club profile and that will net you 5 Kudos right away." but there was no increase in my kudos. Thoughts?

Thanks for your post on Kudos and information on getting Kudos "by completing profile". 4 more to go :)

25 is not daunting number! but definitely you have to dedicate some time on the forum - which is very reasonable, for the prize you get :)

BB! I've a couple of key suggestions! :-D

1. In the verbal section there are instances where the same question is on multiple threads. In the Quant section we can often see Bunuel merging similar topics and reminding the users the rules of posting. I'm not expecting the moderators to do this. This would be a tedious task. Can the merging of similar topics be automated?

Similarly before an users posts a topic, can we have a system check to ensure that the user doesn't post an already existing topic? This feature is there in FB. If the first few words you type in a help question is similar to what is existing the user is not allowed to post his/her question. The user is directed to similar questions. This restriction of course would only be for the PS/DS/CR/RC/SC and IR sections. :-D

2. I've started taking the club tests and I LOVE THEM. But, the keyboard shortcuts allowed in the real thing - next question & confirm submit at least - are not enabled. Can we have keyboard shortcuts enabled in the tests?

Further, can we have tests in the format of: Quant - no result pop up - timed/untimed break - verbal - quant & verbal scores along with overall score pop up?

Can we have more verbal CATs too! :-)

Thank you very much for your suggestions and the kind perspective.

1. Yes - we have considered this system a few times but all of those times we found an argument not to do it. Perhaps it is time to revisit.... As to automating the merging, there is a bit more going on there (Bunuel actually deletes useless posts and leaves only one useful thread; he does not merge all posts but instead merges only the best ones and the others are left locked or deleted). Souvik is starting this process, but it is a bit slow starting due to his recent GMAC summit trip. Let me look into this again - it is a good point about the look up system. I will rekindle this project/idea/concept.

2. Can you tell me exactly what shortcuts (all of them) you use? Right now ENTER works for confirm and submit, so double enter is enough to do that).

At the moment, probably can't have the full test experience unfortunately. You would have to time your brake on your own. The tests are not setup to be as a single test... sorry. Could you tell me the weakness or the main issue with taking the tests the way they are now - is that learning your score? or self-timing your break?

Finally, as to the Verbal Tests - we are adding them slowly. About 5 questions per week.. RC is the biggest weakness at the moment. So there are questions enough for about 7 tests... just not enough RC's. They are tricky to create and we have not attempted as the result. I guess we can venture out of our comfort zone sooner or later. If anyone is good at verbal and would like to take a crack at Verbal questions - Would love to hire them. If you know anyone, please let me know.

Hi BB. I am glad you like my views and am thrilled to read your detailed response and action plan for making the club much better! PFB my response inline in blue.

:) My best wishes to the team for all success in this project/idea/concept. I strongly believe this process should be automated to the extent possible though, if feasible. At the end of the day, this is unproductive work for the moderators, moderators for whom the GMAT student community is highly thankful! :) Their time could be used better. :)

2. Can you tell me exactly what shortcuts (all of them) you use? Right now ENTER works for confirm and submit, so double enter is enough to do that).

I was not aware of the enter and double enter. I'll try that. :)

In GMAT Prep I use Ctrl +N for next after I choose an option and thereafter when the pop up appears I use Ctrl + Y to confirm. Here are the other shortcuts available.

Could you tell me the weakness or the main issue with taking the tests the way they are now - is that learning your score? or self-timing your break?

LEARNING THE SCORE. The last and only time I took the GMAT, I felt the quant session to be extra easy. How I remember feeling it then is that "I didn't need the scratch pad for the last 10 questions" (could be hyped due to text anxiety). I felt I did my quant miserably and screwed up in verbal. When the results came, I got the 47 I always was getting in quaunt and my Verbal score dropped from 36/37 to 31! :( How I remember feeling it now is "duh! Quant is pretty easy!"

BB, can we at least have a system, where one can submit their quant test and choose whether
a) they want to see their score right now OR
b) proceed to take a verbal CAT and view both CAT results later?


Finally, as to the Verbal Tests - we are adding them slowly. About 5 questions per week.. RC is the biggest weakness at the moment. So there are questions enough for about 7 tests... just not enough RC's. They are tricky to create and we have not attempted as the result. I guess we can venture out of our comfort zone sooner or later. If anyone is good at verbal and would like to take a crack at Verbal questions - Would love to hire them. If you know anyone, please let me know.
I am very glad to know that you guys are working on increasing the count of verbal tests :-D and can visualize the pain in creating RC questions :cry: . I hope to help the community post my retake and school applications.

BB, just a thought. Since you view that you can venture out of your comfort zone for creating verbal questions and are inviting people to work towards this goal, I believe this should be the headlines in the GMAT Club newsletters and home page for the next few days. I am assertive many would like to volunteer and few will volunteer! :)
