Posting Questions

Getting notifications about new posts

You can subscribe to sub forums or topics to get notifications when there is activity. When subscribed to a sub forum, all posts made within that sub forum will trigger an email notification to you indicating there was activity in the sub forum. You can also subscribe to individual posts. To subscribe to a sub forum or post, go to the very bottom of the sub forum/topic page and click on the "Subscribe forum" or "Subscribe topic" link. If you are already subscribed, you will be able to see an "Unsubscribe" link. You can manage all your subscriptions through the Manage Subscriptions page.

What is/who should post on the "General" forum

The "General" forum is the place to post questions/feedback relating to our website, forums and other issues relating to SL2College. This is a good place to discuss potential ways to improve SL2College.

Country I am planning to do higher studies is not listed

Please post your question under the "Other Countries" forum.

If we see that there are a lot of questions for a country that is not listed, we might create a new forum for it.

Can I directly contact a forum member

Please avoid contacting forum members directly. Members are volunteering their time and we do not want to spam them with direct messages.

Questions asked through the forum also help other members, since they will be able to see answers to them.

What are "Forums" and "Topics"

Forum

A "Forum" is a message board where you can post a question. We have multiple forums in the Forums section of our website. For example the US forum can be used for asking questions relating to the United States. Forums can have more forums within them (sub forums). We use sub forums to organize information within a forum. For example, we have a "USA: Visa" forum within the "USA" forum. Users can post questions relating to USA Visa issues here.

Topics

Topics are the actual questions people ask and contain the answers as well. If you want to post a new question, you would find the correct sub forum and create a new topic there.

Best practices when asking questions

First have a look at existing threads. You may find an answer. You can use the search functionality on the forum and try some keywords relating to your question.

If you do not find what you want in the archives, follow these guidelines for posting a question:

1) Introduce yourself if you think that will help others answer your question better.

2) Be as specific as possible. Broad open-ended questions are hard to answer and you will get fewer replies for them.

3) If you have multiple unrelated questions, do not post them on the same thread. Create a new thread in the appropriate forum/category.

How long will it take for my question to get answered

As soon as you submit your question, everybody subscribed to that forum receives an email with your question. Generally you will receive an answer within 24hrs. In certain cases when the question is hard to answer or there is no one knowledgeable about the topic, it might take longer. If your question is not answered within 48hrs, the administrators will do their best to find someone that will be able to answer that question.
