A question, just noticed Baidu (bot) in list of members currently online. If I remember correctly BRF wasn't accessible from other side of chini firewall? Do crawling bots get registered on our forum?

I think the board format has become stale. This has been how it is for ages. It will be good to have a refresh.
Maybe have sections for International, one for National, another for nukkad type threads.

Staff Sergeant (60)
Sergeant First Class (70)
Master Sergeant (80)
2nd Lieutenant (90)
1st Lieutenant (100)
Captain (120)

Lieutenant Colonel (160)
Colonel (180)
Brigadier General (200)

We can do ranks of our senas.

Bhyphor 'ahead of the curve..' BRF has no thread yet on AI and its implications (military / strategic / societal / technological...) ??

The fact that Rahul Gandhi and Pakistan are talking about it does not discredit the field itself surely !!

And, no - I am not looking to start one myself.

Actually I was thinking of that a month ago as to why despite having so many software gurus we don't have an AI thread in the strategic forum? There is one on cyber-warfare etc., in Mil forum and all sorts of gadgets, operating systems thread in GDF :lol:
Reason for the icon is we have Technology and Economic Forum!!!! And most of the threads are about the economy!

For a military forum such as us, we need more military specific emojis such as the one above as well as implementation of military ranks instead of these site badges.

0-50 Posts = Jawan
51-100 Posts = Flying Officer/Sublieutenant/Lieutenant
101-500 Posts = Fl Lt/Lt/Capt
501-1000 Posts = Sq Ldr/Lr Cdr/Maj
1001-2500 Posts = Wg Cdr/Cdr/Lt Col
2501-5000 Posts = Gp Capt/Capt/Col
5001-10000 Posts = Air Cdre/Cdre/Brig
10001-50000 (or 10k-25k) Posts = AVM/RAdm/Maj Gen
50001-100000 (or 25k to 50k) Posts = AM/VAdm/Lt Gen
1L+ (or 50k-1L) Posts = ACM/Adm/Gen

5 Sitara rank to be offered as a decoration solely on the discretion of the site crew in recognition of vishesh yogdaan.

What do you guys think?

I'm unable to find a thread where I can introduce myself with the BRF team and member.

Someone suggest me a more accurate thread to do so....
