I really like it, but I think I'll need a map to go around. :mrgreen:

Frankly, when I opened this forum couple of minutes ago, I was confused ... well, think I am still now.
Not sure if I'm gonna like this idea, since already too accustomed with the old form.
But, I'll adjust myself.

For me the main issue is: "Who are all those unknown people, and why I've never met them before?"
I always like to meet new friends, nevertheless I think that having so many contacts at a time could make the relations less intense...

in my case, I love to make funny friends. I believe that among these unknown people, there must be funny friends.

I like the new form. I never undestood why I have to get a pasword for one forum, and another for members forum.
Now is better, in fact there are new members I don´t know, but it will be interestint discover new characters.
There is only one thing I don´t like. The dates of the replies in the index. I find -example- a topic with the las reply in sep 23 2004 and in the next line a topic whose last reply was today. why not put in chronological order the topics?

Personally, I don't like the new forum. I only posted in the Help Desk, in which Teacher Alan answers all specific grammatical questions. But at the moment, many members post anything they like. :twisted: The new forum is too messy. :twisted:

I logged into learning center for a few times. frankly, I dislike it. it was too serious and cold, less fun, and it was unattractive.

sometimes a "messy" forum means that everyone can utter his/her opinions freely and feel comfortable to contact with others. I like the new forum.

Redrose, from my standpoint, I agree with u. Internet is a freedom environment with no ties here. And forums are places u can utter your opinions that you don't afraid to someone harming u because of your words. So we can't change "messy" forums into "unmessy" forums.

I didn't know this problem. [Maybe because I was only on the members forum. :mrgreen: ]

We will simply adapt ourselves.

Why can I not put my smiling avatar ?

maybe your smile avatar is too big. you can modify its size and post it to a website. then you post it here as your avatar with URL

Absolutely agree with you! It's easy to make a forum messy, it's hard, even impossible, to turn a messy forum to a neat one. :wink:

Postby RedRose » Wed Jun 08, 2005 2:58 pm

what do u mean about "neat one"? plenty of rules? everyone has to beware? and as cold as previous forum of learning center?

that isn't supposed to be a club, it is a school, and if it is over-strict then , it is like a prison.

I was shocked when I logged in last Monday to see that all the forums had been mixed together. My immediate thought was "I don't like it". Like some have said, I thought it was too messy. However, I was in a rush because I had to take a train so I couldn't take my time to enjoy the new format.

I think that, despite we like it or not, we should make an effort and try to get used to it.

At first I didn't like it. I was shocked :shock: when I couldn't find any of the old friends in the forums, that's why I haven´t written a post recently but, I think I'll try it again and this will be a new chance to meet other people :lol:

Idalia, that is a poor excuse. We all missed you. If you don't post here, what will become of my fan club??? Don't you ever think about trying to pull that stunt again. :evil:
