Please consider spreading the FB BRF page to other members of BR. We are getting on an average atleast 4/5 requests every day, so it is getting popular with each passing day.

Bhatmullah and Murphynullah:

I think in the next stage, once we get a decent slice of BR members on ze FB BR, we should consider deleting the intro thread and creating a few others where we can have some more discussions and as Ramana saar said spread the word about Benis or for that matter some other threads like ze India-China thread that will be an attention grabber I reckon...

Yeah guys, please go ahead and delete the thread. Do put up a new and interesting one too. Sometimes its not possible for me to log in for days together. So during such times, go ahead and do the needful. Don't wait around for my "Tathaasthu" :D

I am starting a BR-IAF feed here on twitter. This is only about site updates, major, minor, misc. so as not to clutter up the main feed. This wont be a discussion feed. No opinion pieces. only site update info.

To the mods both FB and BR...

I think it is now time to open the FB BR page for general populace on FB.

Currently we have around 55 members (BR only). However we keep getting around 4 to 5 joining requests almost every day :eek:

Given the amount of requests coming in I think we have a great chance of making the FB BR really goinng for it.

Bhat mullah and Murphynullah please state your thoughts on this in the next couple of days.

Mods and WBs if you could do the same in the next couple of days it would be great.

BR members if you could also put up your thoughts.

We have now removed the thread that was introducing BR members to each others so until now only BR members know each others identity. Also a fair few BR members have kept their FB profiles very generic in accordance with their needs. Given this I think it is time that we took the next step and start spreading the BR name further.

I am currently under the pump with my final exams, however I am more than happy to try and put some more stuff on the FB Page.

Bhat mullah and Murphy nullah the only thing IMVHO is that we just need to be a little careful when we add people in...thoughts are welcome by one and all.

andy B do you mean an open group as in free for all without mod approval or do you mean free for all with mod approval?
I am not yet comfortable with the former as I would like to hear some compelling reasons. :-?
If we are going for the latter then I may have change my BR handle. :mrgreen:

Sorry for the late reply guys. But i really wonder what that 'sniff test' could be. For the time being, we're asking them to post a message here and then asking them to send the admins a message on FB. So their identity is confirmed that way.

Suggestions regarding newer and simpler ways of establishing identity are welcome.

We have ~ 269 followers for the BR twitter account. We need to spread the word to get more followers. how about each of us tells ~ 10 other folks about the BR twitter account?
