Why???? What's the point of that? No one should be silenced. Everyone has a voice. That is fair and it also keeps things honest. If you have a request about the website, I suppose you should email Doug or one of the moderators, but I don't really see the point in having a thread that is only for "currently enrolled" students. In fact, it even sounds a little arrogant to me. Just my two cents worth.
I think Fukoki has a great idea here. I think this board should be for current students to give their opinions and their perception of things now. All the posts I read on here are either of past students, or people who haven't even attended Pan Am before. I think this forum should be used by current students to show whats going on NOW, rather then what was going on a year or so ago, so anyone who is curious about Pan Am, can read this board and get a more accurate picture of whats going on NOW, and be able to make a better informed decision!
hey Eagle.. I think it makes more sense ( like you said).. to have currrent Pan am students talk about what they think of Pan Am, their experience, the good, the bad , what they love most about the school, what they hate the most... for future students to view.. like Socal from ATP board, and Dakovich form this Board ..
Blocking people out is just going to bring drama... And I think their's enough drama on this board already...
The drama is great, I laugh and cry every night as I read the new messages. /ubbthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif
I agree that it would be nice to have a forum for current students to discuss current issues, but it can't be done here at jetcareeers. It's a public forum and everyone, with PanAm ties or not, has the right to post their opinion.
If we want a private forum, someone could create one somewhere, maybe on yahoo. There we could discuss what to buy at the bookstore, what to buy elsewhere, what books to buy, where to live, our opinions on policies, etc etc. I don't agree with everything PAIFA does, but I don't want to mention that here and add fuel to the anti-PanAm fire.
I'll still watch this forum if we have a private forum. I like reading the drama every night and I'll try to defend my school when I can.
if you had an expereince you want to talk about...POST IT
if you just want to shoot the crap....POST IT
if you want to complain....POST IT
try as best you can to stick to whatever topic the particular thread is discussing. expect the usual comments here and there, ignore them if they don't pertain, and keep the QUALITY discusion rolling. i think that is the premis of this site, and its a good one. wheres the love?
Being that I can barely type, no less set up a discussion page on yahoo, there is no way i could get something like that up. Do yo have the know how to set something like that up? any ideas on how to keep the names anonymous and the administrators out?
