I found out about it when searching new J-10 pictures. In sinodefence there was a old version and a new version. the new version is connected to this site?

Dong Feng runs a good site. I used to post there but gave up at one point as there were too many kids making silly comments - but he's done a good job at holding it together from the days when he started off with a gmail user group.

It is one of the better Chinese sites.

Thanks folks!

Rookie, welcome to DefenceTalk mate! Well, who do you need to get in touch with? We had to disable PMs for members below 50 posts because of the fact that we had certain members who were registering in order to send PM spam to almost 7,000 members. Sorry, this restriction will not go away.

  1. Google Fu. Searching for information on RAN LHD's IIRC. Whatever it was I searched, I scored a hit on this site.
  2. As long term user of Vbulletin forum I didn't like the custom template in use. Sometimes modification of user interface can inhibit use.
  3. I'm happy to link here from other forums. I don't actively seek to promote though, only provide source of information. If the source is here, I'll link it.

    Aussie Gunner and GF do wonders for this site at least from an Australian perspective. I would totally avoid Stratpage (I can't be arsed joining) if it weren't for those guys - a pity some of the other heads on SP aren't members/regulars here. Then I could avoid that abomination of forum software SP uses.

Google is great! DT gets a lot of hits from google.

vB came out with "new" interface and features so we went with that but recently as you can tell, we've changed to the more conventional layout which you find on 90% of the boards out there so it is easier for the user to adapt.

Gary and AD are just great and have helped us a lot as far as quality of the forum, forum posts and moderation is concerned... cannot thank them enough.
I am sure if we continue the strict rule enforcement and policies, other professionals and serious defence folks will come and they are.
