Bharat Rakshak Forum Announcement

Hello Everyone,

A warm welcome back to the Bharat Rakshak Forum.

Important Notice: Due to a corruption in the BR forum database we regret to announce that data records relating to some of our registered users have been lost. We estimate approx. 500 user details are deleted.

To ease the process of recreating the user IDs we request members that have previously posted on the BR forums to recognise and identify their posts, once the posts are identified please contact the BRF moderator team by emailing BRF Mod Team with your post details.

The mod team will be able to update your username, email etc. so that the user history can be maintained.

Unfortunately for members that have never posted or have had all their posts deleted i.e. users that have 0 posts, we will be unable to recreate your account hence we request that you re-register again.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.

Regards,
Seetal

*******ANNOUNCEMENT*********

During the recent DB issues we had, user ID's of some of the recent members'
(as in those who have registered within last 5 years) have gone missing.

The good news is that it has been possible to resurrect the members' details from their posts,
the bad news is that the user ID's themselves have not been recovered ; resulting in members
with usernames like "member_123456".

Here's the most important bit :-
If you can identify your past post(s), please email 'admn DAWT brf AT gmail DAWT com' with
a) your old username
b) the username under which your post occurs ( it would be something like member_123456)
c) a link to your post. (copy paste your post along with thread link & page no. if you cant link your post)

and we will restore your old username.

1. In the top right corner of the screen, find your username and a downward facing arrow next to it.

2. In the drop-down menu, select "User Control Panel".

3. Click on the "Profile" tab.

4. In the left side menu, click "Edit account settings".

dear venug, this is your fresh account regd. on 15th aug. your old a/c would still have your posts, we can reactivate that if you can locate it.

the tag is simply a function of post count, the board SW removes the trainee tag on crossing 100 posts. it has no other meaning, nor do mods have a hand in that.

I can log in, but just got this on a post from the admin:

"Also please change your userhandle to comply with forum guidelines before August 4."

Can someone help me by pointing me to the guidelines? Can't seem to find them and don't know what I need to change.

Is PM functionality permanently disabled or would admins consider enabling it? If any admins are hovering, could you please enable PM functionality for me? Thanks!

Sorry, PM facility has never been made available to users on BRF. Only mods and admins have it.
