Love the site.

I've already taken the GMAT and won't take it again. I have found that your RSS feeds don't filter out the GMAT test prep chatter. Would that be possible?

All in all I think the site is very well run. A couple suggestions:

1) Maybe give moderators the right to 'freeze' the first posting of a topic, aka even as you scroll through the responses/go on different pages the original argument/question is always visible. Kind of like how one can freeze the top row in excel if it has the headings for all the columns. Obviously you wouldn't want this for the school-specific threads which start with a big list of the acceptance results but for others it would be very useful.


This has been done

Moderators can now edit the first post of the discussion and check the box that says: "Show on top of every page"


ah, cool. I will try it out on a couple of calling all applicants threads.


I'm not sure it makes sense to do it in those threads. Often the first posts in those threads are massive, so if it's copied to each page there would be room for very few other posts on each page and it may actually make it harder to follow the discussion.

I think this forum is too stuffy to be honest. Jokes and counter arguments are quickly snuffed out by the moderators, and it seems like a herd mentality is all that is acceptable. If someone makes a joke or presents a counter-argument that a moderator doesn't like, the post gets erased and a warning issued without reason.

Like on this thread, people voice their complaints, and moderators like Riverripper, Jerz, Nink and others quickly defend the statis quo. That's not the point of this thread!!!! People need to relax and learn how to deal with varying opinions, even ones they don't like, instead of kicking people off and erasing posts that aren't even that suspect. If the only point of this forum is to hold hands and have a group think session everyday, then it is pointless. Now it shouldn't get to the level of BW, but if someone asks for advice and you tell him/her the truth, why is that bad? It is probably exactly what they need to hear.

Anyways, I think the post count and the community will grow with a little less restriction around here.

Yeah, I came to that conclusion very quickly. I tried just to see how it looked and set it back right away. It would have made updating much nicer, but would've have been annoying for viewers.
