    Hi @google109857301664773812117
    Nourdeen, welcome to our community. Would you please be so kind to create a more user friendly tag name by editing your screen name in your profile? It will be difficult for people to recognise you by that long number (from your G+ account?). Thanks!
    If you need any help, just let me know.

    @salmaan_n wat happened to your profile picture?

  • Headmaster posted an update 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Following some constructive feedback from some of our members, we came to the conclusion that the web-design we used for our “new” website was not mobile friendly enough.

    So we started from scratch and are currently remodelling our online platform here at localguides.academy.
    We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

    Sweet @deneen-brazilleDeneen,
    There is no need to use your own tag, tags are only meant to address a person.
    I am sorry in case we were not clear.
    When you use the tag format to mention somebody, the person in question is being notified that you did. So the tag system is only to alert those people that you wish to read your comment.

  • The “Sorting Hat” is ready, and all new students that wish to enrol in our certification program can now take the assessment.

    While our the first classes of this Academic year are set to start on September 20t […]

    Hi everyone,
    We are getting nice positive feedback from various people, including suggestions how to make this website even better.

    Please make sure to @headmaster (tag) me.
    You can do so on your activity stream or in this group.

  • Headmaster posted a new activity comment 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Correct. Given your comment, am I right to assume you meant this to be a group focused on Social Media? If so, that topic falls under our Community Faculty.

    Do you feel we should give this group a different name @deneen-brazille?

    • I was not meaning social media I was just meaning being social period. I would put a little rule board or something of the sort that explains that this is a place for local guides to connect, collaborate and learn from one another. That the group will be as strong as the team makes it

      That way they have a clear understanding of what the group is…[Read more]

    Welcome @member_briggs-soria
    I hope you like the beginnings of our Academy website.

    I noticed your tag name is not correct. We will take care of it within the next 24 hours.

  • Headmaster posted a new activity comment 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    As we do not allow for social banter on the various forums and study groups, (Academy Rule) we felt that our Academy should have a place to chill and relate to one another when we are not talking serious Local Guides stuff.

  • Headmaster posted a new activity comment 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    P.S. it is best to use @member_deneen-brazille (tags) because I totally missed your comment.
