Hi BB,

I thi it is a very wierd suggestion but is it possible to create subgroups in the SC section where question on different topics can be segregated. It will help us to view all question on the topic as soon as we cover that particular topic.....

same can be followed for other sections also..

Thank you for the suggestion - I don't think it is weird and I will be happy to look into it.

What subcategories do you have in mind?

I think the best will be to divde SC Forum into 8 main categories in which SC is devided.i.e Paralleism, Subject-verb agreement, IDIOMS, pronouns etc.

That is a great suggestion. I was stuck on some problems on which I wanted to go further into details of grammar. Referring back to the book sometimes takes up time and yet you still debate over that question. This forum would be a great platform to improve upon the commonly tested skills in SC and discussion always helps remember things better.

I would think about keywords for questions in both quant and verbal forums rather than creating subforums, such as PS and DS for math, weaken and strengthen for CR and so on.

Thank you Walker!
This is definitely one of the options and my feel is that this is preferred but I have not found a good tagging/classification system yet - started this morning and still searching.


Another option is to keep threads like these: 7-t56486 that provide listing of specific topical questions.

I think in math/verbal forums classification should be mandatory. In other words, "Submit" is enabled only if a user choose one of options (PS/DS). Moreover, in some cases you can make this classification automatically for older posts: 5 options - PS, 2 options - DS. Just a thought. You know that I don't like PS/DS separation in math forum... but I'm a strong supporters of tag-system :roll:

I think it will be a tedious job to do the way you have suggested as it has to be constantly updated by some one..... some thing should be there that is automatic, like the one suggested by walker that option will nt be activated untill you select an appropriate tag for the POST. I think there can be drop down menu before the subject line that can have all the tags which will help to differentiae btw different posts. So that way it will be user independent and will have a standard which will also help to search easily.........

I do like Walker's suggestion.
The only consideration is that to find all Probability (for example) questions - you would need to sort everything by name...
The other weakness is that you could not give questions a difficulty rank easily.

Just a thought... Let's each first post in math/verbal would contain tags and difficulty, and every user could change them. Moreover, change processes would be easy, without changing a page, like editing tags in pop-up window and defining difficulty by clicking, let's say, one of 10 boxes in a row that represents difficulty level... difficulty would be defined as an average of all clicks.... So, any person could modify tags/difficulty properties of a first post.

... if a post is defined by tags, its title could be automatically modified like: "DS:700 Sqrt inequality" or "PS:550 Combinatorics". At the same time users would have an opportunity to use filter in math/verbal threads....

i LOVE combinations-permutations-and-probability-references-56486.html thread!!
Wish there were more of these..co-ordinate geometry,inequalities etc..people usually have problems in these..
I also like the CR 7-category suggestion cos that is exactly what I was looking for when I stumbled upon here..:)
