    Teacher's Day Special - best forum response

    The schedule of contests for this month mentioned a surprise contest for Teacher's Day. That surprise was selecting the three best responses across five blue-pinned threads that were put up by me from 1st to 5th September 2021, all the topics related to teachers.

    The winners are-
    Venkiteswaran for his response to the thread on online classes etiquette and behaviour
    Umesh for his response to the thread on what is the decisive factor to determine when a teacher should retire?
    and
    DR.N.V. Srinivasa Rao for his response to the thread on who should take credit for excellent results?

    Congratulations! Each of you will be rewarded with a cash award of Rs.25/- and 25 points. A few other responses may also be given enhanced points and cash credits based on our discussions.

    A point to note- As per the quantity of the responses, it seems only if there is a pre-announcement with the attraction of a reward that more members will make it a point to put up responses, as was the case with the August Independence Day contest. Why should this be the case? We even kept all the threads open till the 15th (the last thread was dated 5th so we kept the 10-day closing time frame for all as the same) but no further responses were forthcoming. Disappointing, to say the least.

    This is really a pleasant surprise. I also agree that we should try to post good responses irrespective of the reward element in the background. In fact, that will help us in our own improvement. Anyway, I thank ISC for this surprise reward and congratulate the other two winners also. I wish and hope that members will keep up the contributing mindset as ISC has already provided us an educational platform of this cadre.

    My congratulations to all the winners. I think if awarding the best responses to the forum section becomes a routine, like the TOWs, then the responses may be more engaging and more members may respond to the threads. This is just a suggestion and can be thought of as a way to increase the number of responses.

    Wow!that is really a 'SURPRIZE' to me. I do not even recall having read about the schedule of contests. My response was just an impromptu normal response as usual.
    Let me congratulate Umesh and DR.N.V. Srinivasa Rao for getting their 'surprize' too

    Anyway I liked the surprise element. Thanks to ME .

    A big congratulation to all winners Venkiteswaran Sir, Umesh sir, and DR.N.V. Srinivasa Rao, your responses on different threads is commendable. Responses are as important as the thread itself. I like to wish you all the best for many rewards in the future too.

    Hearty congratulations to the winners of the surprise contest!

    I have always been maintaining that responses are equally or rather more important than threads and so members should be serious about how they conceive and convey a response to a thread. A response must not only add value to the thread but also should be critical where it should be and must question the author where it is so required. We need to realize that a good quality response can also ensure an engaging and fruitful discussion.

    The cash rewards and points to the winners have been credited.

    Many congratulations to winners Venkiteswaran, Umesh sir and DR.N.V. Srinivasa Rao for winning the Teacher's Day Special - best forum response contest. It was really surprising that any such contest was there. Because I usually check the schedule of Contest of the month many times. It was mentioned there that "one surprise" is to be announced on 5th September 2021. So I guessed that Teacher's Day Article writing contest was that surprising contest.

    Dr. Deepali,

    The exact text was "one a surprise, one to be announced on 5th September 2021". See that small comma after the word surprise? That is the separator from the surprise reward program and the one announced on 5th Sept. which was the essay-writing one, the link to which was put in after the announcement. So members have to be alert and smart to look out for some gentle curveballs, especially knowing my love for surprises!!
