Outline Database

Postby hawkeye22 » Wed Nov 09, 2011 12:41 pm

Can TLS please start an outline database? It would be very useful for a lot of students, and much easier than e-mailing outlines one-by-one to everybody that wants them.

It still seems like it would be nice to have a good non-commercial alternative. I posted an offer of a few basic 1L outlines and got over 40 responses. Clearly there is demand.

Don't waste you time with trying to get credits. I tried to get credits after 1L for all my outlines and none of them were accepted. My outlines were pretty decent too (I got all A's except for 1)...especially compared to some of the garbage outlines I've downloaded from there.

Another criticism of outline depot is that they just added a new feature where you can pay extra to get the outline all to yourself. That is total BS...talk about cutthroat.

It seems like its almost slimebally to host the site and charge $15 for an outline that, 1. You just host the file, 2. The outline sucks.

I know people who bought them and they are mostly incomplete.

I'm assuming you're aware that this was the subject of a thread a couple months ago and that this was the exact consensus and that a TLSer actually made the database: --LinkRemoved--, otherwise this post is too surreal. The plan didn't work because hardly anybody uploaded outlines.
