    Default New sections on the forum

    As Player suggested having a jokes section ... Could you please list your suggestions aswell. Jokes and what else?

    I am thinking about creating a hardware and software section here which would also have a section for operating systems.
    Another one for stuff like laptops pda's and mobile computing.

    Any others?

    a repository for configuration-help-documents/links/support documents!

    I saw just4kix had prepared wonderful support docs and some others had pasted them as post. These are very helpful guides for peoples seeking for suggestions/help. so if we group and locate them in a single repository, then it would be very easy to direct them and refer to that repository.

    That is correct. A generic how-to section would be great and we could put a sticky note on the home page telling new users where to look first for common issues.

    Yes we will have a how to sections with all the docs prepared by Just4kix and others and all the futures ones will go there aswell.

    Any more section you guys want?

    Would you like to have a seperate section for finance? I have been loosing a lot of money in the stock market lately and I can give you some solid tips on how to loose all your money in one trading session
    Dont know how many of you are interested in commodity and futures and stuff... I was earlier thinking about creating a forum on a new site but then its such a pain to get a new foum going.. do you think a finance section would be a huge mismatch here or shall be just go for it?

    How many members here hate the buy sell section?

    I do.. I dont like these buy rapidshare sell megaupload and all that crap..

    Does that section need to go? or may be a strict policy saying no rapidshare or megaupload type accounts will be traded here?

    What do you guys say?

    Or may be I can put a condition.. only members with xx amount of posts can post in the buy sell section...

    I do not like the buy/sell section. But if majority says "keep it", I will say introduce the restrictions.

    Thanks gardencityboy for all the efforts you have made to help other members here.. I have read several posts of yours and they are all very good reads and full of information.

    -------

    Shall we just delete this buy sell section???
    Althought it was some use for me once.. I sold my laptop there a year and a half ago...

    Dont delete the buy and sell section instead set some eligibility or set some rules for selling rapidshare accounts............i.e. they have some xx post and should contact you first by e-mail giving you some solid proof that they are able to sell or not!!

    I would end up getting a few hundred e-mails every week if we did that

    Lets just keep this fisy rapidshare and megaupload kind of things away I guess..

    I have noticed that those guys who used to offer rapidshare accounts for sale were only active in the buy sell section so if we put a condition that only members with say 50 posts would be able to open a thread there or reply to one would solve this rapidshare crap..

    I will get this done tommorow as soon as I find a mod for that I am sure some one must have created one.. if not will get some one to create one for us.

    I did look around a bit but I couldn't find an option to get unanswered threads... Now this is a brilliant idea but I don't think there is a way to get a list of say something like todays unanswered threads or weeks unanswered threads.

    If any members here have an alternative solution please share with us.

    Sorry for posting my comment so late on this topic...actually i just to suggest a sports section to be added... I have requested a Cricket section earlier but only cricket is not a good idea so I think we must have a Sports Section. What do you think Admin??

    Admin,

    Here is offer I made yesterday.

    A bottle of "Muscat 2006 by Sattui Winery, Napa Valley" for you when you come to Pune.

    Or a choice of one of the following (in my order of liking):

    Johnie Walker Swing, Johnie Walker Gold label, Johnie Walker Green Label, Chivas Imperial, Dimple, Glenfidich, Glenlivet, Johnie Walker Black Label, Chivas Regal.

    And a glass of Remy Martin VSOP or Martel VSOP after dinner.

    My idea of a perfect (western) dinner:

    a) A glass of Sherry to start with
    b) A choice of Italian - Lasagna or Spaghetti Bolognese or Fetuccini Alfredo
    c) A bottle of good red wine Lasagna or Spaghetti Bolognese/ white wine with the Fetuccini.
    d) Caeser's Salad
    e) A small scoop of Caramel Icecream (like Butterscotch) and a glass of fine Cognac.

    My idea of a perfect (Indian) dinner:

    a) A 3/4 cup of Veg Clear Soup or Tomato Soup
    b) Some kababs or a quarter Tandoori Chicken as starters
    c) One helping of chicken Hyderabadi and one helping of Mixed Vegetables with Roti, followed by Jeera/Plain Rice with Dal Tadka. All garnished on the side with Bundi/Plain Raita and Salad.
    d) A small scoop of Caramel Icecream (like Butterscotch) and a glass of fine Cognac.

    Any takers?

    It has been observed that the best deals are made:

    - over a game of Golf
    - over casual dinners
    - over a cup of coffee at a cafe

    I havent had any beer today and I am all set to do some work on this forum. I would like to appologise again for making you all wait for sooooooooooooooo long.

    I dont know how many of you were online when this forum was hacked.. I was online at that time and I had actually made a lot of changes including creating new sections and every thing else which was ever requested and then lightening struck and I will ne have to do it all over again

    I think there were about 12 members online at that time and it was past midnight.

    Any way I am on it now

    The "Muscat 2006" is really good - but the choice is yours.
