Do you love "Enotes"?

 Do you love site "enotes"? ...

I know I am just a simple member of this site very impressive, I think that it is not supposed to "ask this question."                                                                            I am not an editor or writer....                                        But I love the "enotes" too much,,, ^_^

So I decided to ask this question.                                     Because I want from "enotes" to become the best educational site in the world.

The question is...  ^_^

What would you suggest be found in "enotes"?                  " not found in enotes now, of course"

We want ideas to make the "enotes" more sophisticated and  more useful... ^_^

good luck.

I agree with the above.  As a self-proclaimed "nerd," I really enjoy challenging myself with literature outside of the curriculum that I teach.  I have only been a member and editor for a short time, so my actual in-depth experience with the site is limited right now, but I do like the two suggestions I've seen posted above regarding deleted comments and editing answers once they are posted.  As a teacher, I love the credibility of the site, and I have included it as a link on my own classroom Moodle and blog site.  One thing I have noticed is a large number of student posts regarding literature questions with no title referenced.  I know that we as editors are to send a message to a certain person regarding these when we see them, but they can be so numerous at times, and that also delays the help that the student needs.  I don't know what a good suggestion would be for an alternative method of handling this problem, though.

I really do love eNotes. It gives me an incentive to read and think about things outside my specialties. I also enjoy doing close analysis of practically any kind of literature, so eNotes helps keep me on my toes in that regard as well.  I wish there were a way for those of us who answer questions to edit our answers if we spot a typo after we have hit "submit." We have that ability here on the Discussion boards, but not of the Q&A boards.

Well, I do love enotes! I can think of one thing that I would change; if the editors delete a post, I wish it would disappear entirely. I do not like having to scroll through a bunch of blank posts to find the good ones.

In an ideal world, people would make sensible comments and posts would not need to be deleted, but until that happens I think it would be better if the whole post disappeared without a trace, denying the person who put it there the satisfaction of seeing their name in the discussion thread.

I have to agree with mizzwillie. The site's existence is built around the need for a place for students to come in order to find the answers to academic questions. Too many times, sites like eNotes, lose their focus based upon the fact that some members try to change the site in ways which do not support the original reasoning for its creation.

That being said, the message boards are created for some personal interaction, but need to be limited to explanations and other question which may arise from a posting.

I really don't know what it is that you want with this question.  I understand that you would like to chat with others in the site, but the purpose of eNotes is to answer questions for students or allow people to comment on topics raised.  If chat rooms were allowed here, the purpose of the site would be buried under the burden of too many posts.  Use the discussion posts to express your opinion, or ask questions you want answered. Leave the idea of chat rooms for another site.
