There is no central email address where people who are not members can contact decision makers of this site and make suggestions. Also why are Yahoo email accounts etc not allowed and why are some old forum members are not allowed to register?

Plus, if someone wishes to donate to BR for its continuation, how does one do that?

You probably had some naughty neighbours who tried to 'get' us and got an IP ban.

This i want to say to one and all....admins please move to the appropriate thread if this isnt....what i want to say is here on BR...we keep discussing about various things..,bt we are not doing some concrete work....what i mean is other than increasing people's knowledge we are doing absouletely nothing....i guess we could act as a think tank....i know it requires time bt even now we are spending time here....i say that we should prepare reports and papers about different topics(lets begin with a few)and submit it to respective ministeries....i guess this could be done.....

Mods/Admins,

In the Indian Army History section, while some information has been provided about CI ops in Kashmir, viz articles on Sarp Vinah, CI ops history, History of RR, Crocodiles of Wullar etc,

But little or no information is there on CI ops in the NE. May be we can have a small one page section dedicated to this as well. I know that information might be hard to come by and most imp operations were conducted before Internet and the media boom, but at least a brief mention of Naga CI Ops, Op Bajrang & Op Rhino might be useful.

Even the official Army website makes a mention of these ops.

Posting a few urls which were thrown up by a very basic Google search. Can this be a starting point?

BR's webmasters may want to re-evaluate the practice of making available news sourced from other websites under the BR URL

http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/NEWS/news ... wsid=13809

IMO opinion the earlier practice of also showing the original URL at the top of the page was better. The fact that their news circulating under BR URL means they stand to lose out on back links for their article, may prompt some of these news sources to take action against this practise

Would hate to see BR being troubled because of this

Webmasters,

Links under the section Coast Guard Fleet and subsections “Class of Vessel” and “Vessel Type” are all dead.

The dead links I have mentioned appear on this page:

http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/NAVY/Coast-Guard.html

Kindly Fix.

Earlier on the site the different forces had a senior officers list with their date of commissioning and their date of birth ,this is now not available.Seniors officers keep changing and one doese'nt know who commands what.I propose that u add the list again.

"27 years, 3000% cost hike later, Tejas takes off"

A headline like this has no place on BR. I request the admins to please remove it from the news feed on the main page.

i'm talking about the main page on MARCOS on the same lines of para commandos and garuds articles. it was an excellent article. actually i don't understand why the special forces section has been deorganised so badly earlier u could find all the articles related to sf in this section.

Aaryan,
First of wrong forum. Such topics are in Strat forum. Second of all there is a thread already called West Asian News and discussion thread. So Please put your query there.
Thanks, ramana

PS: Opening such threads in wrong locations invites a frenzy of IB4TL.

Guys, I can't connect to BR main site (and News admin section) but can connect to BRF from my computer. Tried with Chrome and IE and same result. I know it is not a firewall problem as firewall doesn't block specific websites but the exe's. I've tried clearing cache. Any ideas?

Yes. And this is a formal complaint from me. I need to upload more photos onto the gallery and I cannot access the main site or gallery. Perhaps the server is overloaded. Or Cheenis are trying some funny business as they do from time to time.

Everything is up and running now. But, what I found interesting is that BR main site was inaccessible thru some broadband providers and reachable thru others.

Gagan has such a fine series of analyses of satellite photos over Pakistan. Why not dedicate some BR server space for him to put that up? BR has not really put up anything new and unique since the missile pages were taken down.

Hi Mods,

Where is the first "Osama Bin Laden killed in Islamabad" thread... the one that was halaaled after 72pgs? Was it trashed or was it archived somewhere? Some insights from the early hours after the mission would be useful to revisit as things unfold.
