    suggestion??

    I'm a new member here and when i first logged got on your website the first thing that came to my mind was that there are too many
    sub forum options things….idk what you called them.


    like it would be better if you combine a few of them together…
    for example

    in the pakistan affairs sections:

    culture and history??- could be one

    kashmir and pakistans war- can be one

    in the pakistan defense section

    only have
    airforce
    navy
    army
    nuclear forces/missiles/nuclear special forces( the guys who protect the nuclear weapons)
    procurements -(for all branches)
    industrial complex…- with threads on everything that is made by pakistan as far as weapons and military hardware go???
    pictures and videos with different threads for videos and pictures


    in the top section of the forum
    put sports , entertainment , streaming into one..
    you should make streaming and entertainment into one…

    you can have sticky threads for streaming of each sport..

    i am simply just saying because this because it looks a to navigate through
    and the main reason because the forum will look more active!

    just my humble suggestions

    also one section i always wished a forum would have is like a debate section… users can vote on a topic and you would have a set time where a dedicated moderator would over see it as well…
    like users can have debates ECT…. with a moderator present.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    There are reasons why the sections have been broken up into the current categories.

    To answer some of your queries. For example: social and cultural dynamics is pretty self explanatory, this is a section where we talk about the evolving social/cultural dynamics of Pakistani society.

    History is more about the "history"/past issues/topics.

    We like to divide the Pakistani military complex into individual subsections, but till we get more military professionals on board, we could do something about it. Let us see.

    We could also do something about sports, but again, it depends on how many people are interested in it. For example: I am a big fan of football (soccer) and tennis, if we have enough user interest, we could have a separate category for the UEFA Champions League or English Premier League/La Liga, as well as for the US Open/French Open/Wimbledon etc.

    I like the idea about the debate section, and we have some interesting threads going on, in terms of debating. Many of these debates are in the Chai Shop, others are in Faith and Spirituality; and then World Affairs and other sections:

    http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/forums/7-The-Chai-Shop

    Some of the threads are:

    http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/thread...es-against-men!

    http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/thread...al-on-the-list

    http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/thread...-wan-t-and-why

    http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/thread...-of-leadership

    http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/thread...t-for-pakistan

    http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/thread...rn-world-today

    We have debating threads in pretty much every section on this forum. But I like the idea of having a dedicated debating section as well. We encourage all our members here to debate and bring forth their viewpoints.

    Re: suggestion??

    I think for new members such as yourself [MENTION=8597]papa jaan[/MENTION], it would be best of going through the individual sections, rather than the individual threads in "Today's Posts". You would get very familiarized with how things work here.

    Each section (for example: Pakistan's War, World Affairs, US Affairs, Current Affairs, National Politics etc) has a bunch of threads that are created everyday, and there are others (on top of the page) that are "sticky threads". Sticky threads are very important threads, they serve as an "encyclopedia of information", and have a good amount of discussions and news postings in them as well.

    For an active debator the best option is to use 'new posts' button and when you are done, press the 'mark as read' button to clear the list.

    This way you can participate in threads you like and subscribe them.

    i understand…. I'm just saying when we have sooo many different sections… the forum looks dead… not active i mean…

    I'm just saying like to me it would look better and more attractive…. i mean you don't have to do it the way i suggested but something in the lines of it.

    for example the sports bit we talked of do it like this:


    Sports and entertainment-------------


    {stickies} or a sub forum -
    cricket streaming
    football streaming
    so on
    news channel streaming
    b4u streaming
    so on and on….

    {then your regular threads}


    like you don't need to get rid of what i said but like if you can combine forums like sports and entertainment and streaming into one….

    I agree, we need to look at the sections and threads most active, and look to minimize the 'deadwood'. Or make sure it doesn't remain 'deadwood'.

    I have tried to create different sub-sections (dedicated, consolidated threads) in the World Affairs forum, for many countries in the Middle East/Arab world; such as developments in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Palestine-Israel, Yemen, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Libya.

    Let me know if you find these threads interesting, if you like speaking on these topics; and if you want any more threads for any other countries you might be interested in. And maybe, you could also get some other Arab members to post here as well?
