I was wondering... the anatomy of a study group page could somehow be
related to the verbs 'learn, get help, mentor, get recognition' instead of
the 'long list of discussions' we have today. I mean, find out a way to make
the learning action not being only answering to discussions but contributing
more actively to the subject...

These are some thoughts which need maturing, yet.
