Thank you for the suggestion - this is a very new idea.

Can you please outline what value it will have compared to the current system of one thread per question? I am not sure what would motivate this change.

Also have you seen this done on any other forums/discussion boards (any type, not necessarily GMAT)

See, currently for every problem user opens a new thread. Just after a day or two, it does not have any value. Though, that problem is solved by 3-4 people, after a day or two that thread becomes pretty old & I doubt if anyone cares to check old threads. Most of the people would be looking on threads of Page-1 only.

Now, making a dedicated thread for, let's say, PS section, I can have all PS problems in one single thread. People who have queries can put their examples there. Also, if there are any good questions that help us understand basic concepts, we can put them there.

The discussion & detailed explanation of problems is something that adds value. It will be about thinking process. I guess a lot people can help from this. :D

Also, it will reduce server space required.

Yes, I have seen it on other forums. I will PM you the links. I am active member of that forum too.

Thank you again. My kudos are yours.
I am trying to wrap my mind around the idea and see the core value (besides just being another way to organize posts). Thank you for the PM and links. Help me understand if I am not getting something. I can definitely see that approach as a preference but struggling to see the big value - as you know people resist change (myself included) and there needs to be a clear benefit that will justify the inconvenience of re-learning.

In my mind having 1,000 pages in a thread is pretty similar to having 1,000 threads, though with pages it is a bit more difficult since with threads we can bump them up, keep discussions in one place, and not have discussions on 10 questions at the same time. We can also link to them easier and create threads like these: combinations-permutations-and-probability-references-56486.html

Please - point me in the right direction if I am missing something.

Slightly off-topic:
There are also a few other elements that work better with Threads rather than posts such as Tags. We have plans to add Tags to the forum and tag individual questions by subject and difficulty, so during posting a user will be required to tag the thread. For example they can tag it as "Statistics" and "Medium Difficulty" then other users can add/edit/remove tags. I am not sure how popular it will be but it will allow to organize and categorize questions.

P.S. We are using about 5% of our storage allocated on the server and the difference between threads and posts is not that much

I meant, a thread for each new problem (e.g. - community-activist-81304.html) is too specific. It does not holds value for a lot of users. When the thread topic is off 'Page-1', I doubt anyone cares to check it. So practically, those threads are very unnecessary & helps too few people (if it does at all).

Of course, we don't want to have a thread with 1000 pages. And, you are right, solving 10 problems at a time will be too chaos on thread. Some things we can do to organize things -

As I said in my PM, put time limit to questions. Let me elaborate :
a. We will have only 2 problems active at a time (In 24 hours). Do all the discussion necessary for it in 24 hours.
b. After 24 hours, the problems are closed. And, users are allowed to put new problems.

We can close the thread after a particular time. Say, a year or 100 pages. Put the link of this thread in the new thread.

I know it seems a lot of change, but it is done this way on the links I provided you. And, people are big fans of these threads myself included.

About change - if you stop allowing users making new thread, current users will turn to the 'New Thread'. I assume they will start following that thread from first page. So whenever there are new problems on thread they just go to the last page. Plus, it is easier for them to search back for problems they had referred some time back.

New users, who have not followed the thread can start reading the thread from first page, & solve the current questions of last page at the same time.

Now, we can certainly think on this. Take opinion from Gmatclub stalwarts like rhyme, rivverripper etc. I am sure you personally can ask them their opinion on this.

Thank you again. Sounds like you know GMATClub pretty well with your references to Rhyme and others

Let me think about this - this is not an easy decision. I feel that the new tagging system (coming in a month or so) will help significantly with content classification and create the concept of a single thread, except in addition - will create those threads by subject such as "Word Problems" or "Powers" rather than just PS or DS. If that plan fails, then I will definitely be giving this thought a shot. It is hard to change so much in short interval - it is a gradual process - give me time

Yeah. Even though I am new, I have gone through a lot of threads of b-schools applications.

I actually forgot to mention about Tag system. Yeah, it does seem a good idea for classification. I am still not able to picture how it will look, but I guess we can wait.
Yeah, I get it. Too many changes in a short interval would be irritating.

Anyway, all the best.

Wow, amazing idea. If we can implement this one we don't need the one I suggested.

bb wrote:
1. When you click one of the tags - it would give you a listing of all threads with those tags.

How will the list appear ? Just the list of names of threads or list of 'first posts of each thread'. I think the latter will be better. Just listing tags & thread name will not be helpful, I think.

bb wrote:
2. Every time a new thread is posted, the poster must pick at least one tag for it.
3. Others can add tags and possibly remove. Moderators can edit them
4. Admins set tags - they are not free form, so we can't have all variations such combinations, combination, combnnation, just one tag - "Combinations"
5. Also a comprehensive tag search such as "hard" "PS" "Probability"

Will post if I come up with something on this.

Practice questions posted should have more sub-catagories [#permalink]

When you post a question there should be check-boxes to select from a list of question types. For example:

Question type (check all that apply):

_Geometry
_Linear Algebra
_Number theory
_Square roots
_Subject-verb agreement
_Parallelism
etc....

Now when I search, I should be able to search all geometry questions, or questions with variables in answer choices, so I can easily find a selection of them and practice the area sufficiently.

Thanks!

***********************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

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!

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

Hi, in the tags add an extra tag called 1000 SC's as most of the questions that we discuss here are from this section.
This would help us to filter out....

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.

The forum search doesn't catch short strings like m03. It doesn't regard similar strings with numbers in them as words. I suggest you use the Custom Google search at the top of every forum page. Another idea is to search for a string from the question and not just the question number. Custom Google Search usually does a very good job of searching for a specific string from the question.

You might be able to find some discussions in there too.

The website is sometimes slow but it shouldn't stay slow for a long time though. Feel free to email us at support@gmatclub.com whenever the website is too slow.

Thank you for the feedback!
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

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.

I agree. I found this wonderful site long after I had taken the GMAT. I would like to be able to turn off all of the GMAT forum updates and just focuse on information about schools. Is that possible?

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.

hi Guys

While posting a SC/CR question we have an option to specify which category does the Question fall into.(Ex 600-700 Level,700Level etc........)

Cant we add a new Category (Source 1000SC/CR). By Adding this, members can easily search for the question they require and we need to maintain a separate Sticky Thread for all the 1000sc questions.

Thanks to walker and bunuel and some other members we have math book, prob/comb problems collection and other useful products.
I know it is not easy but it would be nice to have similar thing for verbal part too. For example, grammar book.

HI,
After answering/posting in a particular thread we generally find the thread marked with a black Dot(indicating the that we have already posted in that thread). But since 7th Apr im unable to see it, making it difficult to distinguish between new threads and old(posted)threads
