Quick link to assignments and learning about the beauty of tagging!

Dear Applicants,

You are amazing us with your stories already! We want you to be able to access your peers' assignments quickly, so we're giving you a link here, http://www.worldpulse.com/taxonomy/term/9694.

Additionally, this is a good example of what tagging actually does: It creates a separate page where all the assignments which are tagged with 2010 VOF Week 1, are collected. If you go to the assignments page and click on a story, you will see under the picture of the applicant a small text that says "tags", and then in blue, "2010 VOF Week 1". Et voila! All your assignments are in one place and easy for us to access.

Cheers,

Rachael

Dear Rachael

Hi Rachael

Thanks for your reminding. You also helped me a lot to bring me here. Now I am so happy to visit to many profiles that I can't start to write my assignment .But I have already printed out the material and read them. I will do it on line and offline and I will start it very soon.

With Love

Congratulations on Very Happy Teachers Day through ten years journey!

Dear Ni Ni Aye,

I'm so glad you are here! You also did exactly what Scott suggested: to print out the materials and read offline, to help conserve your online time and costs! I can't wait to read your article, and I would love to hear more about Burma from you!

Kind regards,

Rachael

Please Wait

Please wait Rachael. Now I wonder why I don't see my reply to some applicants. For example I wrote to a lady talked about her six year -old terrible experience and wrote to someone who I accepted friend request. I just wonder and it's not necessary to answer .

Thanks again

Dear Jacqueline,

Try closing your internet browser and re-opening it. Then if it still doesn't work, please let me know. You might also try asking someone around you...are you in an internet cafe?

Kind regards,

Tagging question

Dear Rachel,

I hope you are well. I am busy with my assignment and yesterday I read a very informative and interesting article written by Jade regarding tagging. I am aware that we need to write "2010 VOF WEEK 1" for our first assignment. I am not sure if it would be easier for you and your team to find our assignment if we were to add more tags in addition to the mandatory tag. Please clarify.

And thank you so much for all the wonderful work you are doing, it is greatly appreciated.

Dear Rudzanimbilu, Thank you

Dear Rudzanimbilu,

Thank you for your question, but adding more tags is not necessary (and will make it harder for us to find your assignments!). Good luck!

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
Like a syrupy sweet?
