while browsing the threads of this cute forum, i ovserved that there are some topics repeated.
Some have several participations but of a repeated idea.
The admins may delete em or create a sub-forum of repeated topics.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

This is a good suggestion, but please also consider that we are all unpaid volunteers and our free time is limited.Emotion: smile

Best wishes, Clive
I consider that Clive and every moderator can do it anytime he want.
thank u for Ur comment.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I think I had a better suggestion, but... not everyone is willing to change a lot of things and spend a lot of time improving this forum, also because much depends on system admininstrators and the real owners of the forum (Frank? I don't know...)
Anyway, I too noticed that there's a lot of information wasted in this forum, either because there's repeated info, or because some info is difficult to find so it's like it's lost, or because it's confusing (good info and bad info mixed together).
The idea would be rearranging the info in a neat and clear way, either in an online grammar (with hypertext) or a wiki, or wherever you could add neatly arranged info and examples regularly, that could be used as a reference for both learners and teachers.
Hi! The repeated topics usually occur because many members do not use the 'search-button' before posting, I think that each one of us could keep the forums neat and clear if we searched first what we want to know Emotion: smile

Thank u all for caring but this solution heals the coming posts not to be repeated. what about the repeated ones. Are there any other techniques or strategies to make the forum clear and neat??
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
Again, we do this for "fun" as volunteers. It would take many, many hours to clean up old repeated posts, and that's not what I find interesting to do in my spare time.
Repeated topics don't bother me at all. On the other hand, abbreviations like this:
thank u for Ur comment.

drive me crazy! Still, although I am a moderator, I don't go around deleting them all, nor do I ask other moderators to spend their time doing so. (I might complain about them, though, or choose not to answer them.)

Lol ... Really I don't know ... but these damned abbreviations are wide spread nowadays and in chat and MSN stuffs in particular. I have a friend who don't like them too. I call him "English Language Defender".
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
