Journal.. threads..split..feedback

Ok Folks, The ICFAI experience threads have been split. But there is a loss in certain discussions which have been going on in those threads. There were many of us who were not comfortable to reply to the single thread as it would have detracted f...

Hey Manu,

Good to see u back. We were speculating about ur whereabouts in the thread "bschoolers - get ur ranks here". U can go thru it

Ya, Subbu & I also think that a single thread is better. The thread will be started this evening.

How's life at IBS-B ? Write something yaar....

Make it a single thread guys, it wont make sense if someone who might be interested in ICFAI might want to read our reactions etc and sees several threads. Since all our avatars are ICFAI and only the branches differ, it doesnt really matter as long as anyone reading the posts knows who is posting from where!!

For journals can we do like this:
Lets say there is one thread for everyone (his/her journal) when you click on that thread you see his/her postings only, at the end of each posting there is link for replies (post and read) if you click on them you can go to a page where the posting is written on top and all the replies are given at the bottom , chronologically. The poster can reply to the replies on this page too.

Again this format is taken from livejournal.com For a better understanding you can visit that site and on the left hand menu there is a link of reading a random journal click that and you can see what I am talking about. (try reading more than one journal for better understanding)

Yup, good idea. lets abandon the old threads. Can they be locked, so that no one else can post in them , and their sanctity is preserved ?

oh yea.....looks like the splitting had a curtailing effect..... me too was wondering on which thread to post.....but anyways, since the topics dealt with initial xp at our institutes.....we cud probably start a new thread and go ahead with our regular discussions and leave these threads as they are....whatsay pg, manu, anirban??

Cheers

Hey PG & Subbu, I renamed the original thread that I started . Hope u ppl dont mind.

Personally, I would have liked if the thread would have remained intact. This would have saved all from browsing 3 different thread to get the info. Also this would have saved the duplication that Subbu has mentioned.

Another drawback in this splitting is : what if the fellow by the id of Ruskin , who is in Subbu's centre wants a seperate thread of his own ? will we have 2 threads called my experience at IBS-H ? That will be real confusing.

So it would be better if we had a single thread for all IBS centres. It would have certainly facilitated the comparison of the centres by the uninitiated members.

I think we need to have a solid discussion on these matters before the journal/blog thing is started . This will bring about a sort of uniformity and user friendliness to the forum.

Oww... can't do that. We can split threads, but merging them back is not possible. Now you also have one more possibility.

Create a thread from scratch for yourself. Paste the relevant data from the right threads and continue it as your personal journal.

For everyone's discussion we'll do it on a different thread.
