Hi guys!

I do believe that all of us are pretty busy people and all of us want to pass the GMAT as better as possible.
I do believe that most of us want to rise the quality of content: both of the questions and of the discussions. In this way we will significantly improve the GMAT-club and ultimately the efficiency of our preparation will increase.
I do believe that tags increase the number of certain questions, which one may look for in order to improve some of his/her weak areas.

For the aforementioned reasons I have created this thread to kindly ask /inform all people to make the following check-list when they post questions:

0. - or the most important. Did I check whether this question was discussed before? Use search. - Yes, there are high chances that people will not repeatedly explain the question that had been discussed.

1. Did you post OA? - Yes, this is annoying to wait for OA for weeks or not to have it at all.

2. Did I underline SC questions? Did I boldfaced parts of CR Bold-faced question? - it is really disturbing guys.

3. Did I tag appropriately the question? - Doing so you will avail other people search a wider range of questions. For example it would be really nice to find all GMATprep SC weakening questions, or all difficult Science RC passages from LSAT.

So, please indicate (tag) the source and the type of question.
Indicate the difficulty if and only if you are quite sure about the level of the question.


Guys, please let me know whether there is a need to add other points. Share your thoughts and ideas.

Hope this thread will be included to the next GMAT-club issue to inform the majority of Club members.

Thanks!

Here are some other things that might go into your checklist.

One more item:
1. Did you post the OE if the answers are random and off target?

Quote:
1. Did you post OA? - Yes, this is annoying to wait for OA for weeks or not to have it at all

Although I agree that the OA should be posted and members should not be made to wait for weeks. I guess it is OK to post the questions without OA to promote healthy unbiased discussion in the forum. After a healthy amount of discussion is made then the OA should be shared along with the OE.

Appropriate tagging is necessary not only to ones own question but even if you are attempting to answer question posted by others. This would slowly but surely refine the questions and segregate questions based on different tags.

Good idea. Additionally to strictly enforce discipline we could collate all such rules and then mail it to every member when he/she newly registers here. We should also update these items in one of the sticky threads in each sub-forum.

Some questions may not have OE (official explanations) and some people after posting a question may forget to post OA, because sometimes heated debates may arise later.

In rest, I agree with, hope this thread will be alive. :)

Can I suggest something?

If you are posting a question, please add the tag even when your title is: "number properties", or "combination". It doesn't hurt you to do it. Plus, another member searching for similar questions is able to find the question through the search feature and through the tag feature.

For some threads it's possible to add a tag, and for some others not (at a different time than the original posting). I believe that moderators and members with administration rights are able to add the tag to a question. If you find an untagged question and would like to suggest a tag, please pm any of the moderators that are mentioned at the top of each thread. I can't speak for them but I guess they'll be happy to do it since their tasks involve making the forum a better place. But don't wait for them to take the initiative in tagging all the questions since everyone is busy. You can also contribute a little bit at least making a suggestion.
