Resurrect the dead

I sometimes go searching old discussions and I am amazed at what I find there. Why not try it, and if you are inclined, resurrect an old thread by replying. You can plop a key word into the search tool at the top left, or you can manually search the forum

How to not be invisible on AP English

  • Post your questions and comments in forums. Find an "old" discussion by searching forums and reply. 
  • Avoid posting questions in a blog post. The blog feature is for people who wish to write longer, essay-like posts.
  • Avoid posting on the wall in a group. I personally wish that feature were not there. Wall posts in groups are rarely read, except by the group members who go there occasionally (or by the group creator who will be notified).
