Well now, I may sound crazy to few. But, Why not change the forum software to something new? Of course SMF is great considering its free and opensource but I feel this has turned to be retro style and lacking features... If RCI has enough income through ads/donations we could switch to some next gen forum software which also has tons of features for administration, modifications and also user experience. Cheapest as of now is xenforo priced at $140 with support and upgrades for 1 yr. Then on you pay $40 for another yr of support and upgrade if you wish. I guess that would be cheap when even few people on the forum supports RCI with what they can. like is 50 ppl give 160, you could buy out the license.

Else, there is the nulled world... updates getting released the next day after official updates go live! But I wouldnt recommend it as xenforo is such a great software priced low than others... Any admins feeling impressed and want to try the forum features, if you wish I can do a private installation of my license to test out for you Wink

P.S: How about removing the software version from footer? It may be a security risk. Just a thought though Tongue

I am intrigued by Xenforo, I had not done research on forum software for the past 2 years as SMF was good enough (and totally free). Thank you for bringing this into my attention.

Cost is not an issue, can be covered by Google Ads here.

I will find some time to play with it on a test sandbox. I can arrange licenses.

Forum software version being public is not an issue, typically I am on the latest release on the same day, and have additional protections on the server.  Nothing is 100% secure in this world, as we all should know by now.

Xenforo seemed the best to me. I tried IPB, Vbulletin, phpbb and xenforo first with nulled license (except phpbb) and was very much impressed by xenforo appearance and ease of editing and feature rich than others... Xenforo seem to work for the people without having money as their major motive (which isnt the same case with others). Their support is quick as hell. On the whole, I'm very much satisfied with the money I paid for them. Every time they release a major update, there is a new feature in the core thus reducing greatly the add ons. You should indeed try it when possible.

Well yeah. version isnt an issue but if you hide them, at least novice threats would have to do an extra step to find out the vulnerability Wink I always do that as it doesnt take much time. Then at last its upto you to do it or not Smiley

One suggestions for the sales and wanted boards I would like to give is to make a form of some questions and stuff. it would not be possible to post a thread in the sales or wanted board without filling the form completely without leaving a single question. for e.x. http://www.digit.in/forum/pc-components-configurations/179840-gaming-pc-under-40k.html http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1655398/building-730-000-gaming-india.html. I know this is a bit different but we could use the same concept.

A lot of beginners have problems starting in the hobby with no one present to help them face to face. It happened to me when I was starting, but RCI gave me a platform to ask questions and meet Anish(medicineman1987) who helped me a lot.
Just so beginners don't get left out: Can you make a section with all the locations and states and the name of flyers you can contact in that particular area to help you out.
Instead of beginners posting threads like 'Need help in XYZ location' they can directly contact willing and helpful individuals in their area to solve on the field and "Noobie" doubts, even take them out on a flying day.

I would be very happy if I get to be the first to join this initiative.

The thread exists. I wonder how many users actually go through the gems before posting a thread.

@iamahuman- I knew about the thread, forgot to mention it. What I meant was that willing and helpful people come up and give their details voluntarily so they can be contacted directly. It also should be attached as a major topic for beginners so they can start off with some counseling.

Can we have an article section for stuff like this:
http://www.rcindia.org/electric-planes/iyer's-tech-talk-how-much-power/
It would keep all information posted by the Author in one place and then comments/discussion can be added at the bottom, rather than having comments mixed in between posts related to the topic. The author should also be allowed to add to his article any time he feels like.

Now that microcontrollers are becoming an integral part of RC, can we consider having a separate topic under "RC Equipment" dedicated to "RC Electronics and Microcontrollers". This will spawn a new set of activity on the forum and help in aggregating all electronics and microcontroller related discussions at one place.

Mr. Anwar, I have a suggestion. When using the search feature, the search results come in a random order. Can you make it so that the search results appear in order with the most recent threads/posts at the top?

Recently updated threads are already listed on home page, which serves as a daily top-N.  I am not sure there is enough interest in weekly top threads.

Please add some minimum number of post count - must, before letting users straight away going to "sale" page and start a new thread .New hobby stores may be exempted.Just a suggestion. Smiley

No use.
Our people know how to exploit the system.
They will just jump in every thread and post "Nice", "good" etc. to get the post count.

Exactly...

Discussed earlier too : http://www.rcindia.org/rc-india-forum/suggestions/msg100274/#msg100274

A lot of why things are the they are presently is after careful thought and experimentation.  The big leap now is to move to a forum software that has much more social media integration... that has been in the cards for a long time, did not get enough time to handle the migration challenges, especially related to the SEO/"easy to read" URLs that we have been using.

I think in team bhp ,they do not allow oneline replies.Why not same here?That will make things little more difficult for people with only business motives.

Sorry for the mistake Giggle,I meant "oneline" replies or one liners.I have corrected the same in above post from "online" to oneline.What I meant was ,it's not possible to post replies in one word or just smiles ,in forums like teambhp and that will deter people with intention to increase post count and reputation,by shortcut, to some extent.
And I appreciate your policy against "sms lingo" Thumbs Up

This is a cool thing Tongue
I was actually thinking about this thing......How are reputation points counted, What about the bars. The first page of this thread gave all the required answers to me...
This is a great way to inspire people.

I hope on pressing "I disagree" we dont lose reputation points Tongue
