Homework Help: Can I get the archive of all the past questions that have asked so far?

  1. Jun 6, 2007 #1
    Is there any place on this site where I can find all the past questions
    (organized by the topics likes forces, ..
    along with direct answers of them rather than whole long thread,
    and a link to the original thread)
    asked on this forum?

    I do not need it urgently, but was just wondering.o:)

    Just click on your name and search "all threads".

    ohh.. I am sorry I cudn't word it properly, but that's not what I am for.

    So, here's what I am wishing to have:
    -An archive
    -archive has different topics like Physics, Math,..
    -let's assume it's just Physics
    -So, physics is further divided into topics like Force, Magnetism, Electricity,..
    -a topic is a thread that contains all the questions that were asked in the past by everyone, and were related to this topic [I do not want to go into details about how this data is organized]
    -anyhow, so each message in the thread has a question, and a correct answer to it, without any details about how the question was solved.
    [and hopefully a link to the original question]

    So, that's what I am looking for.
    Hopefully, it's worded correctly =P

    No there is no such thing. You will need to read the whole thread. Thankfully most of the threads are only 3-4 posts long ;-).

    You can however use the SEARCH feature to search for specific types of problems. Just select "Introductory physics" from the dropdown list or whatever, and search for "force question" or whatever peaks your interest.

    But like if someone has a test, and he/she wants to do some practice questions from, I think it would be really hard to do that.

    First, because answers given in the threads are not direct, and sometimes are not even given.

    Anyways, thanks a lot, I almost ignored that searching way. But I really wishing to have it :shy:

    I am thinking of making something like that if it's legal(perhaps like taking all the data on my computer or distributing it over the net like gmail). But I also need a little code and time :cry:...
