Hey guys, i have been "unregistered" since before the last summer holiday, and i have noticed this forum turning from bad to worse. This forum used to be one of my main sources of help acedemically and now its not living up to what it used to be a while ago. Pointless threads are being created such as "best place to find a girl" and other threads that tend to push down threads in which people are needing help.
I am trying to be as respectiveful as possible to these threads however sometimes its just damn annoying that some pointless threads are pushing down some threads in which people need a lot of help in.

So i'm just curious, is this a forum now which is to help people, or is it for people's love crisis and other threads which have nothing to do acedemically, however i do appreciate that some threads that are non acedemic are sometimes helpful.

Well pointed out, but I'm not sure there is too much the mods can do about it.

Thats true, it might just cause an uproar deleting these threads.



To the guy who said not neccesserly acedemia, it says uk-LEARNING, hence educational hence should be relatively to do with learning and educational help.

a suggestion: give options to "sticky" all the threads that require acedemic help for a few hours, shouldnt be too much of a problem then.

the domain name is just an address, and it doesn't have to be indicative of what is on the site. look at whitehouse.com for example. and as the big title at the top says, this is the uk student forum.

The solution might be to create another forum just for socializing, and leaving this forum to be the accademical forum.
