I am a college student and i find it difficult to understand some of what some of the members ask :?: :oops: so i think that there should be another section for college students studying A levels where university students can help us in our problems and help us have a better understanding of Biology so they will be able to enjoy it more :D

Nope. If you do not understand, you simply don't have to take an active part on the discussion, or you can ask for explanation if you feel interested. And anyone can ask any question, and we will answer... as long you are not asking us to do your homeworks for you ;)

of course there are. in fact, most of our users don't have english as a native language. I don't, and neither does Patrick. But most people today can translate at least some things into english. and if you can't, there are computer programs that can do it for you. We communicate in English here for unity, and in order for us to be able to keep control of the forum. If someone started cursing in Russian or Chinese here i would not be able to take action because i don't speak Russian. We realize that some users will find this an inconvenience, but i am afraid it is the only way

Personally I like it the way it is now, where anybody can ask a question, and anybody else (from biology enthusiasts or amateurs to students and professionals) can answer.

Latin. :wink:
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.
