LQ system


Hi,

Just curious to know how LQ point system works. I have noticed that when someone joins LQ he entitled as a member. Then after 30 posts he becomes a member. And then I have seen some senior members as well. What is this system about? Is there a place where I can find a description regarding this.

Sorry if its been asked before.

thanks

Hi,

Take a look here for general LQ related info and here for your specific question.

Hope this helps.

billymayday, the operative word here is 'could' - once you reach a certain amount of posts, you can chose to be Guru, LQ Addict or to stick with Senior Member. You're not forced into greatness...

"If the student failed to learn, the teacher failed to teach."

Not sure where I heard that, skydiving perhaps?

I'd be scared if my skydiving teacher said that.

My experience as a military technical instructor tells me this:
If one student is having problems learning something, maybe it's the student, maybe it's the instructor, or maybe is a combination of the two. It's the instructor's job to analyse the situation to determine which applies.

If several members of a class are having problems learning a lesson, it's definitely the instructor at fault.

In re questions: there are no dumb questions. It's dumb not to ask if you don't understand.

If it was skydiving, it was in the context of learning to teach it. A reminder of the responsibility involved.

@rob124: Why are you reanimating a thread that's 2 years old??? Leave it in peace, it has earned it......
