    Default New Roboticsindia !!!

    Hi Guys

    Im planning to move RoboticsIndia to a better platform. Say something like drupal.Current implementation on phpnuke is seriously outdated and lacking in features. Also it looks so Web 1.0 .

    So here is a chance for you to suggest features in the new Robotics India you would want to see. As usual ill start -

    User Videos
    User Galleries
    ARP Course ... A begginer to middle level online course using ARP
    Classifieds ... for the lots of shops online
    Basic Robo Shop ... Sell core ARP platform

    Ideas are welcome on how to make the user stick around more.
    Some Ideas -

    Default Thread subscription - New users never check replies , Now they get notified by default when someone replies.
    Point System - Use the system, you earn points which can be redeemed.
    Advertising Revenue sharing like Digitalpoint forums. Your Ads show on the content you contribute.
    Digg like content/news contribution

    Regards
    Vikas Patial

    I have been waiting for this.

    -An AJAX chat client maybe? for those logged in. This updates on the current page a viewer is viewing. I'm not sure if its possible. Secondary though.

    -Something like "Say Thanks" to a particular person's post. This will push for better answers and higher thread activity.
    Something like this:
    http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php...highlight=n900

    -Common place for files like schematics, diagrams etc..

    That's all for now. For what it's worth, the current site has been quite rugged, except for a couple of times something went really wrong. Anyway good job to the admin/co-admin keeping this up.

    Default KISS

    Hi all
    The Trick is to make the web site more simpler,lighter to load.This will allow people to get what they want much easier and faster and so they will stick around more.
    I regularly frequent this site a lot
    http://www.8052.com
    coz it is simple to use and has quality posts.
    Also think about post ranking where post can be ranked by qualified posters.
    For example
    Give the 10-20 old oldest and prolific posters the power to vote.A poster can get the power to vote only if he attains some points through his posts.
    This helps ppl in rewarding or punishing for there post behaviour.
    This idea i got from this site
    http://stackoverflow.com/

    If we start voting or judging on basis of quality of post... 90% of the posts on roboticsindia will never reach the forums. Most users of the forums here are one time posters. They come , post and leave.

    I think a post related to developing trends in Robotics of all streams, just not hobby would make many people interested.

    There might be other sites giving lodes of details, but something specific to India would be appreciated, like effect of robots on our lives... and so on.

    A forum on job opportunities and education related to robotics if possible.

    Maybe a good chat sytem.To talk to online mebers.We also need a good tutorial for beginners such as PWM,motors etc.I think we all need to improve the wiki section.It does not contain what it should.We all should contribute.

    Regards Akshay,
    Redefine it your way!!!!

    I wanted a NEWS column, where I can fill up recent trends, technical break-throughs and generally things that motivate and tell the kids WHAT is happening around the world, in the name of Engineering. I see and stumble across weird stuff on my daily foray on the Internet and other nets worldwide. These are things that would educate the students about.

    I asked Vikas many times: something - a special News panel that STAYS for some time on the home page.

    but :x :cry: :evil: :twisted: ... fell on deaf ears- nothing happened.

    ....just left with no choice but the forums, where the thing disappears below the noo'b noise level, or gets swamped with '1week' notices of competitions.
