While the world has flattened, the Indian Army has added to its hierarchical structure along with a significant increase in numbers.
While all this has happened, there has been no talk of reduction in numbers ala the western armies. The US, UK and French military training schools are either outsourced or largely manned by civilian employees.
No modern army worth its name runs its own logistics; their logistics is totally outsourced.
Can we have a leaner army that is as effective an insurance for the nationâ€™s future? Arguably, yes.
Notwithstanding this pontification, acquisition of modern military equipment and implementation of latest military strategy in the current geopolitical scenario should have led to a concomitant reduction in the strength of the army

Assuming you know what you're talking about, could you pls provide a rebuttal and instances of these superficialities you just happened to mention in passing. Would be glad to hear a fact-based, logical rebuttal of the points that column made.
Would dearly love to know that our fauj is not falling behind.
Thx in advance.
(Though, admittedly, am not holding my breath either about a reasoned response from your side.)
/Have a nice day.

Forum members are more than welcome to start threads. I create new threads when I see them. Why is this an issue?
shiv wrote:Most of these people are newer members who do not know the history behind this. The idea of changing the thread when it reached 340 posts was yours because any thread changes to page 10 after 340 posts.
shiv wrote:One of the things that I wanted to experiment with (for continuity) was to wait for the thread to reach 339 posts or even page 10 and then split off the last page or half page as the new thread. The old thread then automatically goes to the trashcan where people can look for it - while the new thread has half a page of posts that serve as continuity. This reduces the break in continuity that occurs when threads are changed. It also reduces admin workload because you don't have to find the url of the last page in the trashcan archive and put it on the first page of the new thread you have created.
shiv wrote:One often finds that threads with an animated discussion suddenly goes dead when it is renewed. That can be prevented by allowing it to reach 335 plus posts (well into page 9, or even early page 10) and then splitting off the bottom 5-10 posts as the new thread. But only admins can do that. That of course does not mean that members should not start a new thread which they can if it has not received due admin attention.

yeah the old software was a little buggier. This one is a bit more robust. I installed and played with it quite a bit when I had the cricket threads going on chanakya 4/5 years ago.
I think for lots of threads like lca/sukhoi one can let them go on and on for years without the need to cull. This also serves a good research tool to have so much data handy..
I have seen other forums that rarely delete threads so new users have a easier time catching up with search function. This helps as it reduces admin workload to cull and police threads. Other users can always direct newbies to a similar discussion and they can catch up pretty fast with the rest of the forum.
A lot of oldies have to otherwise keep policing discussions to prevent repeating the same thing over and over and sometimes this sometimes causes heavy handedness which is unfortunate.
