How to Post Class Assignments

by noid

Okay, let's give this a try. I have been reading past posts regarding the issue of posting class assignments in particular this thread, and I might have been a bit hasty in ruling not to allow class assignments in this site. To solve this problem, and this is on an experimental basis for now, to see if it's effective, I have a created a new content type 'class assignment'. Students who are assigned by their teachers to post their works as a class requirement MUST use this content type (create content>class assignment). Once this content type is used for a particular post, I have designed the site such that that post will not be reflected on any of the Latest Post block or list, and will not therefore bury posts by other members. To make it easy for the students and teachers to find the 'class assignment', I created another block (see 'Latest Class Assignments' block at the bottom right) and Page List (click CLASS ASSIGNMENTS link on the Primary Menu above) for this content type.

Role of the Admins/Moderators 

If the admins see that another content type, say 'blog entry' or 'forum topic', was used in posting a class assignment, the admin/moderator will immediately unpublish the post/entry concerned. members and moderators, feel free to post your comments/suggestions in this thread, if any. 

For now, I will re-publish the class assignments posted before I posted this editorial, all or most of which were published as 'blog entries'. The posters must delete these blog entries and repost them as 'class assignments' within 24 hours (not later than Tuesday, March 29, 4am). I will then unpublish the old class assignments posts.

Thank you everyone for your cooperation.

Just sent messages (via contact form and email -- am only allowed 10 contact form messages per hour) to the concerned students individually for them to move their content to the content type 'class assignment'.

Okay, edited this entry. The rule now is if a 'class assignment' is published using a content type other than 'class assignment', that entry will be treated as spam and will immediately be unpublished (the admin is also encouraged to send the poster a link to this entry on How to Post Class Assignments). I realized that to allow the post to stand for even one second, let alone 24 hours, is too long, and will disrupt the site's normal flow.

I already unpublished the last two entries entitled 'My Life on Paper' (created after the post above was created) which violated this rule. (Also sent the posters link to this editorial.)

Regarding the rest of the 'My Life on Paper' posts made earlier (yesterday and older), I already sent the posters notices earlier this morning (around 3-4am), so let's just wait until tomorrow morning (Tuesday 3-4am) for them to do something about their posts. I will then unpublish the concerned posts if they are still in violation of the site rule on class assignments.

Just found out that I didn't enable the editing of own 'class assignment' when I created the content type 'class assignment.' It's now enabled. Please check.

It's now Wednesday, 4:44am., more than 24 hours after the 4am Tuesday deadline to move the class assignments to the content type 'class assignments.' I have just unpublished the class assignments which were posted as blog entries. Henceforth, all class assignments which are posted as content type other than 'class assignment' will be unpublished.

Sa madaling salita upang hindi mabura ang inyong sinulat na class assignment, kailangan gamitin ninyo ang content type na 'class assignment.' Punta kayo sa navigation menu sa left column, at i-click ang create content>class assignment.
