***********************I have 2 suggestions ******************************

Suggestion 1
My suggestion is to assign a Level Of Difficulty (LOD) to each question such as Low, Medium, High and tough. Also if we can club LOD with each category, everyone can actually choose which level to start with. From Low level each one can slowly graduate to next higher levels in each category (Medium, High, Tough). our moderators & founders should assign a LOD to each question and it will get categories it self accordingly on forums' active board under a specific topic. I think clubbing this with your tagging system will work really well.

for example : An intern can chooses to enter Critical Reasoning at any level (LOD) say High for any topic say Bold faced question as per his wish (because we don't know how good he is) and starts answering.

Also kudos should have differntial marking for each level; hence a tough kudos will score say +4 and low kudos will score +1.

Suggestion 2
why can't we have standard font as specified by GMAT for all questions, even blue screen with white background. This will give a real feel that one is solving on GMAT test screen. See this is not a eureka suggestion but it wil just make our experience like one in the real GMAT test screen..that's it


Thank you so much for the suggestions. Very much appreciate the thoughts.

Difficulty levels is a great idea even though it was discussed a few times. Your suggestion is better than usual (just let users assign difficulty level) though it comes at the expense of requiring moderators to go through every question. It is OK for math, but very hard to establish for Verbal. Even moderators and experienced members will have a hard time classifying an RC or SC, for example.

Personally, I use the number of replies (you can arrange the questions by number of replies as an indicator of difficulty of the question). It does not always work, but often you will find a lot of tough/interesting questions this way.


As to #2, that should not be too hard to do. What do you feel is the value of having the questions presented in the GMAT-like colors. They are still not timed and still you are taking only one question at a time. Do you think it will add any points?

Dear BB,

I would like to suggest here to standardize our forum:

1- A lot of pictures are too large, it need to reduce width and length
2- It's also with long quotes.

These make a lot of spaces in topic and really difficult to read!


Thank you mrbgam! Appreciate the feedback.

1. I think I can think of something. Let me research.
2. Not sure but will look around - definitely gets annoying when someone quotes a very large topic with a 1-line answer


Best Regards,
BB.

I love this "Tag" way of posting
very innovative indeed!

Few tags which are already there in SC are
"Resources, Subject Verb Agreement, Verb Tense, Pronouns, Vague Pronouns, Modifiers, Style and Usage, Parallel Structure, Comparisons, Hard Question, Verb Voice, Nouns, Adjectives and Adverbs, Idioms, Conjunctions, Punctuation, Clauses, Which/That, GMAT Prep, OG, ETS Paper Test, Debatable OA "

I suggest the following(and will add more if i get any in other sections)

Gerund, use of being, Subjunctive, If-Then, Infinitive , Dangling Modifier,Participle Parallelism .


Also if its not done, pls arrange the tags alphabetically

thanks BB



Thank you! Glad the tags work - please don't hesitate to suggest any others you feel are missing. Adding and sorting is easy.

BB

I was just wondering if we can have a feature like follower or fan of other members ? Example, if member A is follower or fan of member B, member A should be notified of any new posts / activities submitted by the member B in public forums. It would be really helpful in tracking posts of good contributors.



I like your thinking!!!
Will be in touch via a PM.

Hi ,

I recently edited one of my older post regarding numbers. However, the updated thread was not showing in the first list of threads in forum. So i had to post another
message within the same thread in order to make it visible in the first page of the thread list.
My suggesstion is to make the thread visible on the list of actie threads when an original post is edited.

Thanks! We've already looked into this in the past. Unfortunately did not find a solution.
Would suggest you use the good old technique of posting a short post that says "Updated xxxx" and you can link to that post with "permalink" or make the same post or....

Can we add a search capability to search the members from a particular location? eg. I should be able to find the members from Chicago, IL or zip code 60601. So members staying in nearby cities/counties can form local study groups if needed.

Hi,
I've been passive member of this forum, I'm really not so happy with the search function, I tried so many options but always the message comes up stating the search criteria has too common words. I simply wanted to find e.g. test m03's q01 so I tried a.[m03, q01] b.[m03 is x>3] etc but to no avail

Other thing I've noticed is sometimes this site is terribly slow, not that my net connection is culprit because other sites were working fine at those moments

Your assistance will be great

Thanks

For the member profile, can we add GPA as well? This will help members gauge their chances at certain bschools a bit better. It seems that people are only posting GMAT scores above 700. I'm not sure if members are discouraged to post scores below 700. By having voluntary GPA information, it would provide a more balanced view and hopefully boost the confidence of those who has "low" GMAT score but high GPA.


This is doable and will be implemented on Monday.
Any other fields we should add while we're at it?

The good part is that if a person does not fill them out, they don't show up in the profile

Do you think having fields like:

WE (Yrs) 1:
Industry 1:
WE (Yrs) 2:
Industry 2:
WE (Yrs) 3:
Industry 3:

are appropriate?

It allows people to get a quick sense of the main things bschools are looking for, instead having to search for the member in the Profiles/Admits/Dings thread.

Thank you.
Frankly - I have no idea if it will be popular or not, BUT! I am willing to try anything (at least once).
Obviously if it takes away value and overcrowds the profile area, it may be a negative, but we'll add it and if it gets in the way, can always take it off.

Yeah, that's definitely a valid point. I thought about that as well. We'll see how people utilize it. Should we make a temporary announcement on bschool forum page for PR and to get feedback? Maybe even a small poll?

Hi,

First of all congratulations for the really great site for GMAT preparation.

I have registered for the GMAT club tests.

It would be really great if there is an option for exporting results to excel sheet.Currently, I don't see this option enabled.If there exists any then do let me know or please enable this feature.

This will be really helpful.

BB and the core group

Not sure how this works(not an web person) - i log in using different laptops(mac, pc) and if I read a post(say P1) from my mac, everytime i use the forums from the mac, that particular post will be displayed as read but if I use it from my pc, it is displayed as unread. Not sure if that information is stored in the browser setting/cache but it would be of great help for people to check the unread posts from different laptops/computers.


Thank you for the suggestion oldtimer! :)
Sounds like the forum feature. I will research but don't hold your breath. I have a suspicion, this is a cookie or something else that's local.

YES! Somehow it got out. The 8080 version should not be used/available, so if you find a link, just remove the :8080 portion.
