Hello Everyone,

I wont say I am a newbie on BR. I just happened to register today. I am glad I did. I am an enthusiast in defense. I read much and try to accumulate. I am reading BR since 2003 on LCA. Offlate I am following MMRCA and China Military thread and Defence and intelligence discussions. I hope I be some good contributor.

Thanks,

Hi everyone,

this is my first post here although I joined a few weeks ago.
I'm from Australia but (mainly) of East Euro ancestry. I'm interested in military developments and have myself some military experience (in my younger days). I hope to get the Indian perspective on this forum.

Regards

Rahul M wrote:Membership Referrals / Free Email Policy

Over the years, BRF's no free email policy has prevented a large number of people from becoming members. Even a few of the current crop of members were part of that unfortunate group in their early days.

While the policy has helped keep BRF saner than most places on the net, it has also prevented deserving people from becoming members.

To arrive at a balance between these two extremes it has been decided by the mods that people without a paid/office provided email can become BRF members if any existing BR member vouches for him/her.

The Procedure:
The referrer member should contact the Moderator Team about this by sending an email to gentleman.cadet [AT] gmail.com, specifying the new member's details (Desired Username, and a short intro as to how you know the new member, and the new members email id)

We will be monitoring the IPs and posting patterns of the new members so as to ensure that this process in not misused.

Consider this as a Christmas/New Years gift from the mods ! :)

Cheers !

P.S.
1) This announcement would be merged/removed in a few days once it is incorporated in the forum guidelines.
2) "offer is not extended to people previously shahid-ized. so no point in re-applying"

You might want to read the forum rules. One of the first rules is to have a HUMAN SOUNDING NAME when registering. Glad to meet you Jacqueline, may I call you Jackie? :D

Dear Administrations
Some of my friends at IITK who have registered at BRF are not able to login back. They have tried the account recovery, which shows that their email and data is on BRF and a mail regarding their account has been sent to them. But they have not received any mail.
please tell me whom they should contact or what is the procedure to get their account back.
Regards

This needs language and maybe more language. See if we can build a language translation team and BPO in India

Mods,

I had registered using the Mail provided by the ISP. Now that I have switched the ISP will this create a problem. As that Email ID is no longer active.

Hello everybody

I am a French literary translator and fiction writer and this is my third post as i hadn't found/read this thread until now. :oops: Sorry about that.

The reason i joined is for documentation.

For now, as a translator, i am interested in present time terrorism in/from India as i translate a book revolving around the subject. And as a writer, the Freies Indien deserters of August 1944 in France are my subject of choice.

Hello BRFites and trainee's .. This is my first post ... I had been reading many threads (MMRCA, LCA, China Military watch threads, news articles on the home page of BR and most interesting - Military scenarios) since 2-3 years .. and today decided to join BR. Highly likely that I would be posting questions only in 'newbie thread' :)

I remember so many names already - Ajatshatru, Dileep, Naik, Hari, Shiv, Jamwal, Rahul (mod) .. My father is in Indian Air Force (ground duty) .. and hence bit background in defence ..

One more thing before I sign-off from here, I always had been impressed by the professional discussions between BR members (especially the 'black and white' attitude - in a debate I felt like people saying 'See. This is my logic and evidence - either you or I is correct' .. 'No bullshit' attitude is highly appreciable). I am an engineer but I just do my work for salary but people (rather should say warriors) here work for their country with an unbelievable passion .. Hats off to all BRFites and all Indians .. :)

PS - Just attended AI on Saturday. Wish I could have offered a couple of Kingfishers to BRFites. Wish me good luck next time :)

Hi BRites,
Newbie here though I have been following various forums as an unintentional lurker. :D

Dad was in aviation and I am from IITKGP.

Really impressed by what is posted on these forums and I hope I can contribute. And I get a clear view of the a/c landing at HAL from my window.

Cheers

Welcome. :)

PS - Sorry for OT. The writing of V.Ahuja, Shankar and Jamwal forced me to bunk 3 working days of my office. If someone can answer if the book which frequently had been mentioned in the Indo-Chinese scenarios, has been published ?
PPS - I have read one book on Kargil and one book on 9/11 (Can't recall but one of them was written by former Army chief). Currently reading 'Descent into Chaos' (American-Taliban war).
