Google link.

2 Your first impression?

I'm keeping my powder dry. I'm an old ex-service defence professional. And current flying instructor.

So far so good.

well, I apologise for calling you a troll

The problem is that sometimes we are inflicted with comments that lack basic elements of research - and when those comments are definitive and presented as empirical - then naturally a question of motive and style is raised.

in the past - and in the recent past we've had some come in and make absolutely ridiculous comments under the banner of nationalism and patriotic fervour.

it tends to irritate people somewhat. there are a number of people in here who do work in a number of military disciplines. eventually you'll work out who they are. they're worth listening to as they are professionals within their respective fields.

That is understandable sir its not that i havnt done the research its just simply i dont have it to hand, my good friend javier is having a look at what ive got (some items).

Ive been researching submarines now for well a long time longer than i can remember but knowlage on some sonar systems is limited.

Although not millatery (yet) well kind of not i did join the royal navy 2 years ago and didnt get in because of my lack of wieght (wanted to be on submarines either sonar or weapons).

Right now im training to become an officer in the merchant navy.

well, I'm sorry you're not happy, but looking back on your history of posts I don't see too many where you've asked direct questions.

Most of your responses are comments and opinions - just like others within a post. 19 posts in 9 months

In fact I can't see too many posts where someone hasn't provided a response when you've asked a specific question.

It reads like you expect the 'experts' to be at a members beck and call?

DefenceTalk is still a small forum with a few regulars. Since it doesn't have the same traffic that other sites do, it's not going to generate the 50 post in a thread a day response you will find on other sites.

Stick around and pay attention to the what some of the regs have to say and you will be well informed as a result.

Exclamation

Thank you Gary and Supe.

Jezza, what can I say? We try hard to take care of some harsh replies but some do slip by...

Also, as supe said, DefenceTalk is very new compared to some of the busiest defence/military sites. It will turn 3 years old on March 27th, 2006 - still in three years, it has done very well in my opinion.

Currently, we are doing around 4 million pageviews a month... last month it was 3 million and 2 million a month before that and unique visitors increasing as well. Our hosting needs... started off in first year with $60.00 per year, 2nd year it went to $120.00 per year, then we had to switch to Virtual Private Server...cost went up to $1088 per year and few months into that, we had to switch again to DEDICATED server, cost went to $1800+ per year. That is just the HOSTING cost... I think that alone tells us alot about the growth in three short years and what is yet to come.

The small number of posts are posted per day...which is okay. I know, we use to delete 50% of the replies and one-liners because either they were nonsense or just oneline replies.

DefenceTalk offers a professional and mature arena, well moderated, strict rules, no/free of POP-UPs and other highly annoying stuff which other sites put you through.

Stick around and invite others, we will have a better place. Also, give suggestions to improve the site - if it is beneficial, it will be done in no time as it has been in the past.

Thanks and enjoy!

I visit this place daily and choose not to say anything.

Admin: Text deleted. C'mon mate, those comments aren't necessary. You've been here long enough to know whats acceptable
