How to Post Class Assignmentsby 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 FilipinoWriter.com 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.
FilipinoWriter.com 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.
