So the guys were discussing the very important question of what school has the prettiest women. For some time, we also discussed some irrelevant stuff that could be useful for our website.

- More admission consultants

- Social networking capabilities

- Career forum

Sorry if I missed anything. What do you guys think?

thank you to TL, jb32, terp06 (aka agold), maverick, yihwei, ac8706.

just throwing out another idea...how about the ability to subscribe to an RSS feed for any particular thread? for example, I could get an RSS notification when someone responds to the Stanford thread or whathaveyou.

may be a good way to keep people tuned in to the the latest discussions :)

The thing with adding another admissions consultant forum, and even the "Peer Review" forum is that they seem to attract a lot of people who request a "profile evaluation", post once or twice more and then never return to GMATClub.

How could this be resolved?

Most importantly, what was the consensus on the school with the most attractive women?

Glad to hear it. If ASU didn't take that one I was going to demand a recount.

Stuck up at times, not as pretentious as Cali, and very, very attractive.

I think that a lot of this can be self regulated. I'm more than happy to give people feedback on their profiles and for some it might encourage them to do the same as they're going through their own process or after they're finished applying. If you (for example) don't want to give feedback to those who only have a few posts then that's your choice but for those of us who have a few minutes to help out it's fine. (I mean no offense at all Solaris, I know what you mean about being frustrated) For those who request a review and choose not to post again, we didn't like them anyway =]

Also I think it's a good idea to keep the evaluation requests in their own forum because inevitably the regular admissions board will get clogged with requests from these types anyway much like over at BW....

Is this feature not available with the "Notify me when a reply is posted" in the options section right below where we type in posts or via the "Bookmark Topic" at the top page of each thread? This would tune someone in to a particular thread if I'm not mistaken (although not a newly created thread).

You're right...the main difference here being receiving an RSS notification instead of a PM on your GMATClub account :) As far as I know there is no RSS functionality already being used...

Can these chats be archived? I'd love to be able to go over past chats.

I know there was some concern about actually documenting/archiving the discussions from chat...for whatever reason :)

You could always just idle, or as I have started doing, join from a standalone IRC client and leave it open all the time :P

huh. Archiving these would be interesting - I'm not sure I'd want all our chats saved forever and ever. Also, I have no idea what the IRC thing TL was referring to means:

the web chat is an IRC plug-in, meaning you can install the IRC program and just connect to the chat room directly.

plus, based on my observations, connecting with IRC circumvents the "full chat room" issue that has been preventing people from joining lately 8-)

by the way praet, i have a feeling we'll be getting more & more newcomers to the forums as applicants start coming out of the woodwork.

might i recommend clarifying some of the announcement/stickies to help newcomers more easily find information. for example the "pants pooping" thread has some good links (which could be expanded upon, i think) but the title is not very informative.

Organizing and making the information easily accessible is challenging - when we organize in anyway, we assume that the user will know exactly where to look. So we need to do this multiple ways, which means that we need everyone's help.

- Use your signature to highlight the threads/features that you find most useful (use permalink if there is a specific post you would like to highlight.)
- Give kudos if you find some post helpful - it will show up in the "best posts" feature.
- Send us your contributions or participate directly in the wiki project. It has a very easy to use text editor.
- Keep adding links to the knowledge vault.

whenever you want to implement changes, my request is to simply build some consensus and let me know what you want implemented. We don't make a ton of money, but we will gladly invest in your ideas if they require a budget :-). It may take us time, but we will get it done. I highly recommend the chat feature to brainstorm.

As I said in some other thread, the forum is as useful as the members want it to be. Share, be nice and just hope everyone else does the same. 80,000 posts is a lot of evidence for my belief. I think we have something good here. Please help each other and nurture this.

Yes, I am repetitive. :oops:
