Question for English learners: What kind of posts do you like on the discussion board?
With so many posts getting down votes lately on the Discussion board I'm curious as to what topics/discussions people like on Italki. I've asked this kind of question before and even that got down voted.

That one got down voted as well. I guess that people would like to discuss more serious topics, but the rules of italki don't allow that. I saw people down voting your discussions and thought that they do that because you ask very simple questions (What is your favorite food? What did you do last weekend?). But italki is a language forum after all and especially beginners are very happy about your discussions, because they can practice their English. They would not be able to take part in discussions about environmental pollution or rights of indigenous people.
Don't get discouraged by people down voting your discussions!

Firstly, I consider that italki should change the discussion borrd to avoid " I'm looking for a language partner" posts that bother other users -- secondly, serious language learners know that we learn from any resourse in this case posts from the discussion board and obviously never give down votes to discussions we may not be interested in finally, with respect to what topic we like to see, as a learner I would like to see more academic or low frequency words posts...

Thank you @Alice

Thank you Alex. Yea sometimes I just want to throw my hands up in the air and ask, "What do you want?" It's really a roll of the dice.
