hi all,

it seems like this subforum is for people posting homework problems for other people to do or something? isn't it a bit weird to have someone else to do all your homework problems?

I think it's fine when when someone asks "I'm working on this homework problem, but I'm stuck at one point. Please help me understand such-and-such."

I think it's wrong when someone simply uploads their assignment questions, without showing us that they even tried to solve them.

I think it might be OK if the problem is posed as a general problem from which everyone can learn. But in past week or so I have seen people posting the question with multiple choices (a), (b), (c), (d) -- I think the poster is making no effort whatsoever. I have posted some answers myself -- but I don't know if I am really helping anybody (I guess I am helping myself to 3 points?). I think the situation could be worse if these questions are a part of "take-home" exams where outside consultation is not allowed.

On the other hand >99% of the posts don't fall in this category.

Best regards,
v_c
