    I'm asking about testimonials from others, not you. That is the point (to which you seem oblivious).
    Can I accuse you of thread drift and ask mods to take action?

    Well Hobbes this new thread is solely due to the toilet do0r being locked in Chess Whatever thread. If I persist in other threads I get censored

    You can but it would be a baseless accusation since it was you who introduced your supposed abilities as a chess coach in post #7. As that claimed seemed relevant to the thread by your own inclusion in that post how can the mere substantiation of the same claim be thread drift?

    The only written testis I can think are of when I was professinally teaching in college (paid good $) and the students had to assess me for the principal, they all made a point of showing me their assessments of 10/10 (actually was 5/5) - say no more and I was hired again.

    Npw you return to that other thread and fight Igor, good little boy

    You were teaching chess at TAFE? Do you have copies of the student assessments?

    They may have handed in to the principal, but the feedback should still have found it's way to you (with identifying information removed) so that you could reflect on (and possibly improve) your teaching.

    After the assessemnt the principal called me in and said that in teaching you either pick it up quickly and survive or sink and that I did very well. When I think of it he came and attended for a while to check me out. You are getting as finicky as your mate KB, hope it is not contageous.
