You all may find it funny but I would really like to have this feature.

Sometimes, some of the posts are so funny that I feel like saying,"ROTFL".

There should be some icon along with "Thanks" which we can click and we should be able to see the number of people who are "ROTFL" for that post underneath that post with the laughing icon. :) :)

When we click on any of the topics in "Latest posts" it should go to the latest post of the topic(Thread). But it opens the first page of the topic.

ideally the forum is structured to go to the last unread post by you but we will have a look if this feature is having any problems

mate when you look at the "latest posts" options, it goes as:

thread name, views/replies, name of the poster and then the most important arrow appears. click on that arrow and that will take you to the latest post on the thread.

this is not so true once i asked for possibility of few more smiles, repeated the same request thrice but no one bother to answer, what i am observing here that people are working here as in groups and in nexus, a## licking and thanks giving flattery is more practised in DFI then responding to logical threads and posts.

Only especiaals respond to especials or wanna be especiaals.

issues related to structural changes are left to avi to address, he has been busy off late but will be regular from september onwards. in case you have made a suggestion and has not been responded to, then the simplest way of getting the attention is by putting a PM to the mod team or avi (A.V.), what ever is thought best will be replied back to you.

there is a mod around most of the time, there are some mods who work on an invisible mode so if you glance through the online members you will not make out whether they are online or not.

i have not seen any grouping on the forum least that be blamed on members.

by saying thanks you pass on a gesture that you appreciate someone's reply which has in some way added to your knowledge base or to the over all discussion on the thread and if you know all then there is no need to put up a thanks for anyone.

what is of interest for you might not be of interest for others, what is logical for you might not be logical for others, what is intelligent for you again might not be intelligent for others, its all a matter of perceptions, and how you have aligned your thought process, least that be debated, also we are a new forum and it can not be expected that all the members come up with few of the finest posts on each subject that is discussed.

as far as the quality of discussion is concerned, well my friend if you have not followed closely then you do need to follow few of the posters, their knowledge base is tremendous and they raise the bar big time with their contributions on the forum.

I appreciate that you have answered my post. Interestingly, it is typical of you that you have done your homework before answering. But it is not about my personal scores it is about astonishing level of congeniality and affirmation to each other in most of the posts. I am not able to digest the fact that we are making every thing so polished............oh i think i need a break.
thanks
warm regards

why the forum has gone private. How do you expect to increase the members if you don't allow guests to see what's there on the forum. Moreover, if I want to go through forum without logging in on some public computers, how is it possible. Is there any reason for this decision to go private??.

Could someone clarify as to why the Riots in Xinjiang has become a video game and is moved all over the place with new avatars as titles?

From the Subcontinent to Articles and now one does not know where.

Same is the case with Life in Pakistan.

If threads are moved, then one cannot follow the forum.

Sir,
Even if a thread is moved, you can always locate it by clicking new post. It will list all new posts.

You find it under different names.

It is like a merry go round.

Why can't it be where it is?

I am sure there must be good reasons, but what are they?

We like the forum and we would like to be around, but if it is a Jantar Mantar, then we will get lost and lose interest!

DD,

because of the private thing, we have seen a great push in the number of members registering on the forum. there was a time we had some 2-3 registrations/day but the same has increased any where between 7-8 registrations/day.

sir,

yes, this thread was merged with another thread on a similar issue which was posted in the article forum and the concerned mod while merging the thread without realising moved the main thread to the article forum, but seeing that this had been moved to the wrong forum it was moved back to the sub continent forum. we are extremely sorry for the inconvience and try our best none such problem arises again.

It might be true for those who were visiting this forum previously and got addicted and had to register to continue reading . It (more registering) might stop in few days once all those addicted guests exhaust unless you make it open again to attract (seduce :blum3:) new people. My suggestion would be keep the forum open for few months and close for a month or so and keep continuing this cycle. Another way would be, to allow the guests to read 5 threads or so and then forcing him/her to register if they have to read more threads. :D

Can we do away with the Disclaimer on the front page. It looks cruelly tacky. Some sort of small or collapsing one?
.
Also alongside where notices is written I see this :-
.
On both sides.
.
Kindly look into this. The site looks very good but this gives a very non-comforting feel.
.
Also I would suggest that the logo should come on the "tab" of the browser window, instead of a small blank page.
.
Thanks.
