I wish there was some sort of voting/electoral system for new mods. Then the prospects would have to ply us voters with biryani, liquor and TVs. :((

Is that the explanation for yesterday's downtime :)

Congrats to the new mods!

that explains technology used behind it.. perhaps need to look at other free areas of interests.. of course totally driven by the interest group.

Hmmm, Nairgolis disappears for a while and comes back as a moderator , perhaps Sanku saar needs to learn a lesson from that?

Mods why don't you guys test the Ban button and Ban everyone on BRF for a few hours or so? Just to see if the thing even works.
Everywhere there is rona-dhona that India's netas don't have the ball$ to use the N-button.

How about New Mods trying out their version of the button on everyone hain ji?

i don't think they have an N-button that terminates all. They have to go on each avatar one by one. so, if it works one one, it should work for others. :twisted:

^ Nah not neccessary if phpBB (I have no clue about this SW package) which powers BRF stores metadata in tables then one can just update the corresponding field of the table in the backend for all users. :mrgreen:

I think downtime was because they were recycling some services/web server after making some admin changes. :)

Ramana saar, so many from those lists don't seem to be there on the forum anymore. N^3, Gerard, RayC, JaiS etc.. Lets hope their fate does not befall any of our new mods.

Thanks for the wishes Mayo. Staying off BRF has been an interesting learning experience. Innovative solutions (or workarounds) have been found to the same issues that BRF faces.

Although it is not apparent on BRF there are a few BRFites who are dedicated to military tech and news and I see them on other fora and received updates and links from them. Those who really want to stay focused do exactly that and they have not allowed BRFs loss of focus to stop them from staying updated.

Gerard and Jai have been busy but still involved when they can. both have been active in the past week and Gerard was one of the people who decided on the new team. Jai also runs BR's twitter feed.

n^3 and Ray sir are of course welcome to come back and post whenever they want to.

Congratulations to the new Mods ! Hoping there is some change in policies towards some of the threads, in particular the Economic Thread.

Would also like to see the Modi thread removed from GDF and made public (at least in the last few months heading into the elections !).
