Quite a few resources are incorrect- there should be a way of getting this sorted

Showing 1 to 14 of 14

I've been doing some of the quizzes for fun and looking through them and other resourcs and it's annoying to see people have made resources and made several significant mistakes.
/i think it would be beneficial if you could alert the admins so they could sort out the resources, instruct the author to or delete them?

/learning the wrong thing is as bad as doing no revision at all!

Yes, good point - we are aware of this. Moderators try to rate the resources but we can't be experts in every subject. We are planning to have a 'report' button for users when they find something wrong. Also some ways of sifting our very best resources.

Please could everyone contact us when they find something wrong?

do you want people to contact using the current report misuse button?

if i came with something(which in many cases did)  that contained a mistake in it, i would comment on the item saying "xyz is incorrect, but its actually abc" and wouldn`t rate it as useful...but its always useful to address mistakes:)

Leah Summers totally agree

I do that as well, the on;y problem is it stays up for other users to use. others who don't look at the comments so don't realize so may learn the wrong thing:/

...hmm so its better if someone i.e. a teacher/GR admin should look at the accuracy of the content a GR student uploads...yeah i agree :)

thats why a button as the admin above suggested would be good - it identifies the problem (the reporter can include detail in report) and the admin can change/delete/sort it.
I think they're looked at already but it would take ages if you aren't already knowledgeable in a subject to check.

@Alex ...i agree! i hate writing on the comments that "abc is wrong"...it makes me sound rude/arogent/brute to the person that has uploaded for the sake of helping others with their work/revision

btw if you dont mind me asking....your profile picture has a horse on it...it makes me curoius why do you have a picture  of a horse as your profile picture?
