Heh nerdy thought

Post by Kings_Mercy » Wed Feb 13, 2008 10:29 am

Well that nerd topic made me think we actually have a lot of intelligent people on the forums that would be quite helpfull with some work at school and the such.

I mean who better to ask questions about a math problem than a rocket scientist mirite?

Anyway my suggestion is a new part of the forum set aside for helping people who might have questions about shcoolwork such as a mathproblem they might not now how to do properly and could ask there for help with it.

I'd like it, but remember, rocket scientists might have too many things on their hands to trouble themselves with our math problems :P.

We have occasionally made topics for this, but it might help them stay alive if we actually have a thread for it. I'll support this idea.

I guess the real question is would it get used. Of course I'd be willing to part some of my expertise to you all to help you out, but I mean, there's no point if no one has any questions to ask. Otherwise, sure, more stuff for me to do. Hopefully I'm not the only qualified person here to help. xD

And it wouldnt have to be a main thread or anything it could be a subthread like console gaming or something. I mean considering we have GW thread as a main and how often its used. Its had more responses in the last month than it has for the last year and thats like 10 responses. So even if it is rarely used its still there you know.

Anyway i gots to be in english comp in like 10 minutes so im out.

I absolutely agree. Typically if there's something I need help with I just get on Bnet and hope there are people around. An actual forum for it here would be very nice.

Maybe it could be just a pinned-up thread in Social Interactions?

So far its looking like good vibes all around. The only damper is the strong possibility of disuse every now and again like the WoW part. But atleast it would be there just incase right.

One problem that I can see is how fast people reply. If I'm going to post something, it's either because I'm stumped for a project/assignment, or I need help NOW. If replies come in five hours later, I wouldn't bother asking for help that much.

That doesn't mean it's still not worth a shot to try to get some help. We also do have some pretty active members on the forum.

Yeah, I mean if it's on an assignment, it'll probably be on the exam? And it wouldn't hurt to know, even if it's after the actual assignment was done. You know what they say, Knowledge is power.
