How many moderators do we have got in the forum and what does it take to reach up to become a moderator
May 16, 2006 at 11:32 am #48467
You have their photos, names and bio in the rules. Plus we have Tyson, our very shy and secret admin.
To become a mod? well, first what is needed is the need of an extra mod, and then the mods will contact people they see fit for the job. As it is, those are people who post regularly and knowledgeable.
But the last spot was filled long ago, and our team still works fine…

Hm, interesting idea . . . 😈 😈 😈
Nah, I’ll just wait until this site becomes so immensely popular that you are begging me to enlist in the ranks of the mods.
May 30, 2006 at 1:49 pm #49203victorParticipant
:lol:…actually this forum is already popular…but I don’t know why those people make this forum popular as a forum to answer their homework…:lol:
December 18, 2006 at 6:42 am #63167
^If you are that tired of homework questions, then why don’t you put it in the rules not to do that?

The rules states that no spam shoulld be posted; Does it stop pspammers? Not at all.
And remember those people have usually not read the rules, they usually do not even give the correct title, or even use the right forum for their posts…
December 18, 2006 at 9:32 pm #63243PoisonParticipant
Honestly, how many of you read the forum rules? I bet not many… 🙂
December 18, 2006 at 11:31 pm #63258
I read them. Twice actually.

I’ve read them too. Five or six times i think. I win :p
December 20, 2006 at 12:20 am #63356
Well, of course you did Mr. Mystery!! A mod who doesn’t read the rules….that’s a first!!

Is that mean it takes 6 times to understand them? ❓ 😯 😆 😆

I am guilty, I only scanned through them when I joined 😳
But then the administator posted them again @ human Biology and I re-read them.
BTW when you go to the welcome page for this site it says right on there "ideal for homework: so it attracts people for that reason I think.
"Welcome to Biology Online, a choice source for biological information, ideal for homework, research projects and general interest. The site is currently separated into four main areas, each offering a different way for you to look up biological information. Comments and suggestions about the site at present, or any future enhancements you would like to see are most welcome!"
December 20, 2006 at 5:00 am #63394
I don’t think that i’d ever get tired of the homework-helping stuff. Because everyone could use a-little help sometimes.
however, it irritates me when people post their ENTIRE assigments.. and then someone ANSWERS all of the questions. THAT’s what totally defeats the purpose!
Do the mods. ever say-anything to folks who continuously ‘give-answers’?
December 20, 2006 at 6:42 pm #63465
Personally, It does not matter to me. If you want to give answers, give them. If you don’t, don’t.
December 20, 2006 at 7:26 pm #63471quote Vibrio:
I’m sure that you did not become smart because somone TOLD you all of the answers… You’re smart because you’ve used your own brain-power to research things and answer your own questions. I’m sure that you’ve spent alot of time reading, studying and memorizing biological things because doing well in school/college is important and interesting to you. And you also probably know how GRATIFYING it is to finally figure-out/master a complex concept .. and then using your knowlege to perform-well on exams and in the classrom.
At the same time, the people that come on here and post ENTIRE exams are completely taking advantage of you, and all of the hard work that you’ve put-into your own education. Many (but not all) of them are totally ungrateful and will turn around and totally be rude to you or disrespect you.
In the end, you’re not [/i]really[i] helping them because if you give them the answeres to their take-home exam they’re still going to fail their final!! (and all of the time that you spent replying is essentially wasted, because i’m sure you could be doing something more fun and productive in your personal life)
With this being said, I’m not suggesting that you shouldn’t give answers… all i’m saying is to do it in moderation. Or, encourage them to TRY before you give them the answer … because a little effort goes a really long way!
Surely many of us could spend all day on this website answering people questions while boasting about our smartness … but that’s not what this site is all about! It’s about helping folks who need it… not hindering their progression and growth in the sciences.
anyways.. that’s just my 2-cents… everyone is totally entitled to their opinions!

Thank you, and you are entitled to yours as well.quote :
People have different personalities. some really want to do the work and research because they are interested. These are the people who want to be educated. Others, however, just want to get through school so that they can get a job, not go to college and just live a simpler life. These people are the ones that post their questions exactly. I never said that you have to answer them, I only meant that the people who want to answer them shouldn’t feel like they can’t. Personally, I do not see anything wrong with just getting the answers so that you can pass. of them, its not important. The don’t want to learn the concepts. But if they really want to learn, then they won’t just want the answers.quote :
Well, if they are disrespectful (that is insulting), then they can take a hike. But I have noticed that many of them are saying thank you and please. I think they are being polite. If you feel they are taking advantage of you and being impolite, then there is no need to answer them. Even if they post their assignments as numbered questions, as long as they are asking nicely and not just using you, I see nothing wrong with answering them.
I just think it is up to the person. It is an opinion thing. There is no right or wrong way to answer these students. It depends on how you feel you should do so whether that is answering exactly, giving links, or not answering at all.

Yes, I know of the amandment. But nowhere does it say that you can’t answer the people. If it was up to me, I would not make that amendment. It doesn’t bother me if people don’t want to answer. its totally up to them. I just think it should all be allowed.
December 21, 2006 at 3:08 am #63516LinnParticipant
Just recently someone posted all the questions for a quiz in Botany.
they wanted the answers. I said for them to post what they thought was correct and then I would tell them if they were correct or not.
They sent a PM and we had a nice time going over all the questions, of which they knew all the right answers after all. So sometimes they just need reafirmation.
I believe they got an A 🙂 🙂
I know the panicy feeling the night before a test 😆
When I have more bio classes in the future I am going to ask sachin for help 🙂
December 22, 2006 at 11:42 pm #63681

i do live down under, formally a kiwi, i live in auz now,
its a good thing concidering all uni’s are offering half price on all science subjects till like 2012

Half price ? So how much is it ?
Soem German universities charge 500 € per term, others don’t charge anything.
May 17, 2007 at 9:15 pm #72815
well it means i can do bachelor of science for cheaper
