You find it slow now? Since the upgrade I find the speed to be quite acceptable.

Welcome and Thanks.

The speed, well the servers are located in mid USA and it really depends what type of connection you and your ISP have to the internet backbone. It maybe slow in some parts of china and not others, same for rest of the world.

I know when I surf DT from work, its bit slow but when I go home and get on its a lot faster and when I am at my parents home, it is even faster there (all three places have different ISPs).

As far as not being busy, it is busy in sense that people visit it but only those who want to discuss login. We've worked hard to keep this place clean and mean so that only serious people think about participation in discussions and not flamers/one line posting trolls.

Don't forget to invite others.

Enjoy!

Agree the speed is satisfactory (at least from here in Europe), though the other point is true : there are often only about a dozen people for example on the naval threads at any given time, and membership is for the moment mostly Australian and American. It would be better to have wider participation. I'll do my best to spread the word on this very interesting site

cheers

i was looking for some information about tanks and used google search . after that i usualy hanged around and read alot of posts as non member . most of them were unbiased and stimulating. so i decided it is a good site for some good debates . Moreever i belong to indian controlled Kashmir which is one of potential flash points in world today it is better for world to know what a common kashmiri youth is thinking about world events .
i want to add this thing that i dont have much knowledge of contemprory
millatry but im avid reader of millatry history . hope to contribute something here

Just the same here. I googled pictures of the Black Eagle tank and was led to an article here.
I'm collecting pictures of military technology of all kinds, so i think it is a pity that the gallery doesn't allow to download the pictures there. I understand that you want to keep things to yourselves, but i also think that this way the gallery is something inert that is not of big use for people here. But maybe that is just me that loses interest in it because i can't download any of the pictures.

Thanks.

Of course, you can download pictures. Only right-click is not allowed but pictures are downloadable so are the videos (there are not alot of them though). Let's see if we can make it little easier for you?

Usually, in internet explorer (windows XP) once you hover over the picture, it gives you option to save, email, print the pictures. Lets see if we can get rid of the anti-right click feature.

Ah, i see. I'm using Mozilla, so that might be the reason.
If you had a good reason to implement the anti right click feature, it would be asked a bit too much to lift it. But if there is no reason to keep it and if it isn't too much of an efford, it would be great if you would do so. Thanks.
