Here is an idea for to revitalize the CD forum.
A National Editorial Competition.
it could be like the televised speech contest but for journalists. There would be some cash reward for the winner , as well an official document that students could use in their portfolio to help them get a job.
There could be several threads with topics and the winners of each thread would progress to a final thread where the best editorial would win.
Judges could be from senior forum members or from CD editorial staff, or you could even contact deans of major Chinese Universities from the English departments to be a judge.......lots of possibilities.
I would like to see post graduate thesis level English -With really "hard hitting" topics like
1. Solutions to world pollution of the Oceans, that threaten fishing stocks.
2. How to make the UN a more effective world governing agency.
3. Should Iran be allowed to possess nuclear weapons
4. How to prevent mining accidents.
5. What are basic human rights.
6. Are all people created equal.
7. What is right -evolution or intelligent design.
8. Should there be a world standard currency.
9. Is it right that all foreign countries have no say in internal politics.
10. Should there be limits to freedom of speech
11. What will be the future of the earth be like in 50 years.
12. Should nuclear weapons be banned.
anyway these are just a few topics off the top of my head.........
anyway you could pitch the idea to CD bosses and see what they think......

It would be nice if they promoted the completion on the front page, it could really be successful I think...

"The First annual English Editorial Competition"   has a nice ring to it ....don't you think?

anyway I will start a thread and see what the forum members think.

Why not fook yourself back to Canuck media, you boring wanker?

Chinese posters will be left talking about more interesting Chinese current affair.

Why don't you make some suggestions my xenophobic friend...
PS
isn't the price and availability of fish a current Chinese issue?
don;t you think that what the world will look like in 50 years a relavant thing to Chinese or do you prefer to look backwards???

Well if little miss perfect would stop launching incessant personal attacks against forum members, which is illegal on this forum ,
it certainly would never need to happen........

Piss off you gweilo cunt.

This is a Chinese member forum.

I'm not welcome in your BBC's, so why should I greet you with open arms.


It was ABC who said she apposed vulgarity....so I was only following her advice.....

I'm sure she is appalled by your constant use of foul language, but she is too polite to mention it to you.

maybe we could open a foul language thread or I got it we could call it the "abuse thread" and you could be our judge of
vulgarity and antiquated attitudes........
