Idea! Separate Forum for Step 1 Questions

Hello Admins,

I was wondering if you could make a section in the Step 1 Forums where people can post just the questions for people to answer. Lately, there has been a lot of activity with questions being posted up so I think it would be better if we have a separate section.

That way, anyone who posts up HY Material or any questions asking for advice, or explanations, the thread would not get shifted down and would have a longer exposure!

Thanks

Smile Thank you for the suggestion

Dear Hope2Pass,

Thank you for your nice suggestion.

Members can access Step 1 Questions Threads by using our tagging system.

Step 1 Question Tag Link is available right from the home page.

Likewise, other tags such as Step-1-Preparation, Step-1-Experiences and others are also available in our complete list of tags.

The list of tags can be accessed by on search and then choosing Tag Search from the drop down menu.

In addition, each thread is tagged at the bottom so that members can read further related threads if they are interested.

Sincerely,

-

Thank you for the reply but that was not the issue I was addressing.

Many people don't use the tag system even though it is a very efficient way to searching the posts related to your query. However, the main issue concerning my post was that when people post questions, all the other posts get shifted down and don't get nearly as much exposure. If someone needs advice on their prep, or would like to clarify something, it gets moved down by all the questions in the same forum.

In my opinion, it would be better to have a separate sub forum just for posting Questions! That way whoever wants to practice answering questions can go on there and those who would like to get some advice etc can just go to the actual main step 1 forum!

Anyways,
Thanks for your reply.
