    Do you mean have the quote function enabled when you "quick reply", because there is an option that allows you to quote?

    In some other forums they a little box at the bottom right of each post, and you can click them so that you can accumulate several quotes into your reply without having to go back and copy paste them all into your post. For example, I could 'quick quote' your post and the three above it, and then when I hit 'Post Reply' they would all be quoted.

    I know this would be massively useful in NCAP where things can get a bit convoluted, as well as some of the faster threads in NS where there are several conversations going on at once.

    Ah, Quick Quote was a great feature. But might be a bit difficult to implement with the "click before 'Quick Reply'" thing we have going.

    if plaigarism is an issue. perhaps a wiki approach to uni subjects can be introduced. i dunno if its too much of an undertaking but a WikiUni thing would be revolutional (if that's a word =P ) where students can add/change stuff, mods/admins can lock stuff and there are bots running to stop stupid ppl messing about with it

    We used to have a "Users viewing this forum" but it was scrapped by the administrators because loading times were really bad.

    Yeah. Same with the buy/sell forums.

    You can change the profile layout. You don't need compulsory parts like interests and stuff, do you? I didn't even like the "new" layout since day one.
    Nuff said.

    Only if they have mod powers in the forum where the locked thread is.

    Re: What would you like to see on BOS 2007?

    I'm not sure how feasible it would be to put in place but would it be possible to make the profile entries for 'Academic Programme' and 'Educational Institution' a tad more structured (similar to what Facebook uses)?

    For example, the student inputs their uni/college from a list and then chooses level of study (SC, HSC/VCE, Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor etc.), subjects(secondary) or major (tertiary). I suggest this because if one were to search using the option in our profiles we often would not produce very satisfactory results (people putting things in just a little bit differently throws the search out) and because rollcalls do seem a somewhat popular theme around here in alot of the forums.

    How about a Careers forum. At least this forum will be more popular than the food+drink forum.
    I see that a lot of the questions asked on both the uni and the hsc forums revolve around careers questions such as degrees required and subjects needed to be in a certain job and questions about pay etc.

    There are some HSC study tips (which could apply for most situations) here and here.

    Check out the News, Current Affairs and Politics forum.

    It's crazy. Everywhere you go there a people posting "essays" on their political opinions. From time to time, there are absurd and offensive comments made and it annoys me a bit.

    ....and why is that these days, it's become fashionable to have user names named after politicians? I'm referring to Stott Despoja and Nick Minchin.

    I'm guessing that the real Peter Garrett and Brendan Nelson must be on these forums too.

    Constructive 'essays' are to be expected and they should be welcomed, and the political accounts have been around ever since the News, Current Affairs and Politics sub-forum was first created. As for the offensive comments, I think that you would be best to report such posts whenever you think that it is appropriate - as you no doubt know the mods aren't always online, and to be quite frank they are much more likely to notice a questionable post when it has been reported by a concerned member of the forum (such as yourself).

    If you don't know how to report a bad post, take a look at the attached picture and then follow the red arrow. Use it wisely, and I'm sure that the mods will thank you.

    Hi Natasha.
    What you were thinking there was that I must have a pea sized brain and you might correct. I forgot that there was a "report bad post" button. Offensiveness won't be tolerated in these forums (I hope).

    I wish your Democrat brothers and sisters well for this Saturday.

    Perhaps under the tertiary education section, an area on international colleges and universities?

    EDIT: Never mind.
    Found it.

    Are there enough VCE people here to actually submit the notes?

    ^^ wow, that was mature...

    i'm sure there would be a fairly reasonable amount of people willing to submit notes. i've seen it mentioned several times in threads - "i would upload notes if they had a vce section..." if we have vce forums, why not a vce resources section?
