Where would you like a primary post for approval?

Also, is there a place where doctoral students are hanging out?  I need to find some for a paper I'm writing; preferably drop-outs or re-starts.

Prof Accounting

I’d try starting a thread under the General Academic Discussions forum.

This individual is soliciting study participants for their research (they've just come over from starting a thread on the CHE fora.) They were reminded of the rules there, which I believe are the same here, yes?

M.

You are absolutely right, thanks for catching that. To discuss things with grad students is fine, solicitations seem to cross a line to me.

I agree that solicitations cross the line.

Nevermind then. 

Thanks for letting me know before I get slammed with uglies.

So far, no real uglies on these new fora.

Hello. I am one of you. But I'm not saying who. New start, new name! I haven't been active on the old fora for a few years.

Yep.  That's the only place someone can post without registering so that's a target.  The spam is gone as being not entertaining enough for the people here to play with.

Hello! I've been a somewhat long-term lurker of the old CHE fora. I made an account of the same name on the old site, but it seems I joined at the final months of the fora, right when there were whispers of the transition to a new forum if I remember correctly. However, I immensely enjoyed reading many of the old threads on there, especially the incredibly long and humorous threads as well as the still invaluable advice.

I'll try to participate more as best I can. Looking forward to meeting you all!
