View Full Version : Personal Development
23-11-2003, 02:16 PM
With the suggestion by Schye, that we could comment on each others' posting without disrupting the flow of discussion, lets set up this topic of forum. silverblue also suggested that we could have a section to find out common errors in English. Do you guys think that this one would be sufficient or should we have another one?
I name it "Personal Development", where all of us would try to help one another to have personal development. We should help to point out the good and bad about one another's forum posting. Lets do it in good nature. If you find out that I have a tendency to misuse a certain word, phrase, or have used a wrong grammer, point it out here and lets learn together.
Any constructive criticism, compliment for everyone's post would be appreciated. Lets take it maturedly. If others comment on our errors, lets take it in all strides and learn together, kay? This would be a very good benefits that we get from forum discussion in Recom!!!

Hi Chen Chow,
Well, I do agree with what Seng Chye suggested but if we put our comments here, it will not be appropriate. There are a lot of topics out there and when we want to give suggestions or comment against one particular topic/reply, we will have to come back here to write. This Personal Development forum seems to be an individual topic and it will be rolled down to the bottom if after 10 topics being replied.
I would suggest that...
1. Can we make this "Personal Development" forum like sticky, which stick on top of the 10 topics in our front page? This will ease members when they wish to refer to their error or some comments.
2. Can we put a link as "Comment" next to the "post reply" in our forum, any member who wish to comment on a certain reply/member, they can click on the link and that will link to the "Personal Development" forum as a new post.
Maybe we should inform the members not to abuse the comment page in the other hand, they should also utilize the comment page wisely. Certain things that not related to the topic title itself, can be concluded as "comment".
I am not sure you can understand what the hell I am talking about... sorry for my poor English.

eliminating false mindframe is one good start..
there are 15 kinds of logic flaws...
I forgot about it... long time didn't read about it...
I guess I shall set up another new forum somewhere... err... Arts..
similar to this.... on personal development but in a different context...

a fantastic suggestion, royston... what do u guys think? hopefully we could do that...

I agree with this idea. I myself make lots pf grammatical mistakes.
But, remember, don't misuse it. !
Other than that, this is the best way for us to improve ourselves.
It's a brilliant idea.!

Thanks ChenChow and Syamsul for supporting this idea... I believe it would be great and ease our members to post their comments.
So Syam, this got to leave to you... heehee...

yeah, bring it on asap.

wwhong, let's try not to give the anchors too much pressure... heehee... I know it is a good idea but I also believe that it is something kinda hard to do... Syamsul have told me that they need time and probably they will get it done by the coming winter break. So, let's give them some buffer... 8)
Again, thanks for your support to this idea too...

royston, if u could work on the code, may be masterofnone, could let u do... and you could modify the code and make it work? how do that sounds?

One thing I am not clear of...
Is this for the purpose of improving our English language or is it also to give comment or feedback on our posts? I feel that these are two completely different ideas... it would be really difficult to mix the two together don't you think?
I agree that the 'comments' link suggested by Roy is a good idea when people want to post comments that are not related to the topic at hand on someone's previous posts. That would eliminate alot of topic diffusion.
However, if we truly want to work on our English and grammatical errors, I think it would be appropriate to open a Forum (just like 'bahasa kita') to solely focus on this. I have already spotted a few common mistakes in English, but I don't know where is an appropriate place to post it. Not here rite? Under personal development? Doesn't sound right lar.. hehe. But I really think we should have a separate English section as it is important we learn from our English errors... :) (myself included)

okie, lets put it this way. This is more for personal development, where we would comment on how one's argument, idea would be. So, anything except grammatical error and english would come into her. So as not to conflate, we would have another thread on Common Errors On English.
Check it out!

hummm.... chenchow, I am not good in that... :P Since syam is busy right now, I don't want him to spend another time explaining again to me the code... haha... :lol:
Anyway, base on what silverblue suggested in the "we are growing" forum, as long as we can find someone to manage the forum, I guess this will greatly lighten up their current burden...
