    I was wondering about weather you could put in a homework center type thing in here, were people who are totally stumped on an essay (hehehe(like me)) can ask for help and those of us who know the subject can help. I believe it would be benificial to all the members, regardless if they are still attending school or not.

    Well, I wasn't sure where it should go, like in the help, the general area. the only problem is it would be very confusing if everyone just posted all type of problems here. They'd have to be separate threads to make sense and you can't do sepreate threads within a thread.

    Please don't continue in this thread. This section is for suggestions only.

    The proper area would be the General Section. Just start a thread when you need one. People here are usually happy to help.

    No. google is to screw you up on philosophy stuff
    I was only suggesting a homework area, because people tend to ignore serious things sometimes in the general area, or the post gets put on the next page and isn't seen. It was just a thought.

    IMO, the problem with Internet Homework help is that to often the student having problems is expecting the answer to be given to them.

    On many of the Science related forums I attend, it is a general rule to only give out hints on how to solve the question. I'm a firm believer in it being crucial for the student to figure it out for themselves.

    Just my little rant lol.

    Also, the thing I've been always wondering about... why would one base one's homework on a information received from a random forum member instead of looking it up from a trustable site? (or... GASP... a book!!! :eek: )

    Just my two p

    Good points lol. The public library usually holds a wealth of information on any and every subject.

    Part of the reason that your teachers give you assignments and homework is to give you exercise in obtaining knowledge and exploring the topic on your own merit.

    When you grow up and your boss gives you an assignment you won't be able to depend on someone on the internet to do your work for you.
