from my experiences, the backup logic will increase exponential times if it is a timed and exclusive backup operation. I don't understand why BRF needs such info sensitive backup procedure. I would redo the whole process by enabling active replication when a thread/post becomes available by condition for backup, where it is a short burst concurrent activity which takes a read-only snapshot of the dhaagas.

of course, I don't know what constraints the existing backup procedures has, but I m pretty positive that whatever approach you have in place now, is going to cause big pain points for bradmins in the near future.

Dear admins,

In year 2002 , I had started a thread on "corruption nexuses in Indian judges" with description of solutions such as JurySys. The thread was deleted later as oit crossed 10 pages i.e. 400 posts. I have that thread with all 10 pages in my disk.

May I upload those 10 BRF pages of year 2002 on my website and post link here?

I need to ask, as those pages belong to BRF and there are copyright issues.

Do we have a thread on news from Indian states? Either individual threads for say UP, TN, Maha, Gujarat, Bengal etc or a combined thread for all states.

Either way this would cover all forms of news- political, social, economic, cultural etc. Presently such news is scattered across various threads such as Internal security, economic and sometimes others..

I assume you asked "WHY" to me.

Many can benefit from questions and answers given in that thread on corruption in judges and solution to corruption in judges. So I want to upload the threads on my website .

So May I upload those BRF threads on my website and make it available to public to see?

Rahul Mehta, we are not really interested in resurrecting 12 year old threads. When you returned here, we advised to you restrict your participation and not spam or troll other threads and increase moderation workload. You haven't really kept your word. So there's no point in adding even more a moderating workload through old thread discussions.

It was merged with the psyops and media watch thread based on moderator discussion. No need for two threads in two different forums for basically the same topic.

I feel that my current avatar gives away too much. Besides everyone here calls me "KJo". This is no different from other names here like "sum", "sibyt" etc.

BRF Mahdis, we need a thread to discuss religious terrorism inflicted upon India. Things like Love Jihad, conversion, Saudi money, Evanjihadis, church planting, anti-conversion law etc. This should not be to discuss the pros and cons of any religion but to discuss how it is being used to subjugate India. If there is one already I request you to post the link (the Islamism one is too specific and is about outside India).

Suraj,

There seems to be some miscommunication. I will put this as my last post on this issue, and take your decision and close it.

If it is burden, you need not reply. I will take that as NO and close the matter.

I am NOT talking about resurrecting that 10 year old thread here on BRF.

I am talking about uploading the BRF thread on my website, and ONLY posting links here.

So IMO, this cant increase moderation load.

I need your permission as BRF has copyright over that thread

1. So may I upload that thread backup on my website?

2. May I post the link to that back up of thread here?

Please take it as a No. We already have enough of a moderation load dealing with posts on current topics in current threads. There's no need to resurrect matters from over a decade ago, regardless of where it is posted, just because you're keen on rehashing them once more.

Mods-the whole business of putting people on the ignore list seems to be lost, when the trolls post page after page of the same rubbish, only to be endlessly refuted by the forum members. Is it possible to add a bit of code that will make the quoted part of those in the ignore list also invisible? Off hand, I can think of an easy way to do this using awk and html, but I am not sure if it easily carries over to the board software.

Mods, I don't know if there is an option on the forum to search for all the post on a *specific thread* by a specific poster. If it's not there then can that be developed? I guess it should not be a big deal from the coding perspective since forum specific search is already there.

Is it too much trouble to ask people to simply ignore quoted entries by those you choose to ignore ? Just how much trouble is it to NOT respond to someone, regardless of whether it's in a post by them or quoted in someone else's post ? An ignore feature is already provided. It's not perfect, but it's reasonable to ask that posters meet us midway here instead of demanding near perfection. If something filters though, well, just ignore them. As you know, it's very easy for material to still filter through, if the quotes are removed, for example.

The software will not allow that. I suggest you leave it as is for now and change it when you have your new ID. We are there in case of any issues. You can simply contact webmasters or the common mod email gentleman.cadet at geemale .

It is possible to have a "lifafa" button like the "report post" button? Clicking the button should immediately remove the lifafa news item and transfer it to a special "lifafa" folder.

That way we could clear up about 75% of the news and related posts on the military forum.

I urge admins to take the help of Allah and give us a lifafa button.

^^ I second this notion, most of the news posted here contains more rona dhona than actual information. And then folks waste pages discussing a few useless points made in the farticle
