On the chat a member was saying to write a blog about the two periods of My English Club naming another member .
I gave a solution on the mains that all of us put together can bring it back to the same standard, Hey presto he did not respond and was out in a dash. out of the room for good reasons I guess.
Its a serious thought and for EC to be leading as ever, one should make use of all whats provided by Mr Josef and the team to make this s worthwhile site .
Just advising to write a blog and to analyze then and now . will not help much
You can moderate topics on main with your friends and fellow members .
Please visit the groups created by the admins and members. choose what you like most video audio blogging . and please interact .
Due to unavoidable c circumstances I too am not able to visit daily as I used to . That does not mean I will leave my second place of learning and home ;)
I have been going through the old groups especially Tara Benwells . where she encourages the learner in different areas of learning . Hopefully will try to be active in some such as news reading / challenges etc
Please share your ideas and how you will add in to the club
Mary, I can't agree more with you. Once someone is the moderator, they should be the role-models to those, whose English level is worse than theirs. So honestly speaking to write and post such text without proofreading is just a question of 10 minutes, so why not to give it 5 more minutes to correct the errors?
Anyway, who makes this place active and alive? People!!! How come that all the active people are gone? Maybe they lost interest, maybe moderators should come up with something inspiring to drag their attention instead of saying they all are busy...or maybe I should finally come back :D
To be a mod, being perfect in English is not the qualification. It is the ability to assist the owner in maintaining the the good atmosphere here in EC administratively. It is not a very healthy idea on the part of any member of EC to spread hatred and hostility against any mod. I myself have checked number of text errors in one of the mods (who is not active more now) text (it may be just not paying attention on proofreading like I do), but no one ever pointed them out. Why Nadira is being target in this respect?
Nadira ! I believe that OLD EC was Golden age of EC history , Nice active members , nice effective topics and creative activities by members in a place where there was not any vandal or moron around because of the presence of the founders and moderators around all the times . ( What I really really appreciate for ) .
I remember there were few groups but all of them were really active.
Friendly behaviors of all the members , Native English speakers who help others ( some members like Mrs Tara , Mr. T Mal or Mrs Ali and some others )
I hope I could remember the name of old members some like :
Forget me not
Skoon al Bahr
and so many other that I can not remember because of my weak memory.
Please complete my list with the name of old great members.
Thank you for your kind advice which I have noted. This is a learning site indeed what are we here for
Uhm... as you said in your discussion titled 'Groups', I see you're not "moderator of technical errors", and for what I can read here, you neither can be of grammar ones.
I don't like to give advice about grammar, 'cause I'm not good about it either, but I think you should review your own text and edit it to make it better (at least to make it more understandable). I tell this to you 'cause, being a moderator, people here pay more attention to what moderators write and I don't know what a newbie is going to think if they see how a moderator is not more careful with the grammar of the texts they post.
Btw, in case you're not aware of it, the punctuation marks are also grammatical errors to take in mind. I don't know if you maybe wrote this from a phone or tablet, where is more complicated to write a long text, but I've done that too and, even if it takes twice as long, I try to make it the best I can and I re-edit my texts many times to correct myself. I know that my english is far from being perfect, but I make an effort every time I write something here... My advice here is that, if you wanna improve your english level, maybe you should take more time to re-read your text and correct yourself too.
Thank you for your kind words :)
Neer nalavar mod. Nadira! You are doing your best with the other moderators to make the ship moving. You are one of Mr. Essberger's helpers. Keep up your faithful and good work.
