The State of the Timawa.net
« on: March 29, 2019, 02:49:36 PM »
Hi guys, we're currently in soft-opening mode, I'm working on a few changes and checking on a few bugs.  I've implemented SSL on the site for more security, if your address bar says "not secured" or you see a red open padlock before the address then just change the address prefix from http:// to https://

This should happen automatically but just in case, just add the 's'

Anyway, I have a few more updates and posts lined up for this weekend. 

And oh, welcome back!!

It's good to be back again sir Opus. We are getting altogether again sharing very important thoughts especially in discussing defense-related issues just as before hibernation.  ;D 8)

Nice to be back Opus. Will you be restoring old content and old accounts, or are you going full clean slate on this?

Welcome! I'll start restoring old content, priority to stuff relevant to current situations

Hello Opus,

Here's some suggestions for sub-forums I believe would benefit all members from your revamping the forum:

1.) Foreign Military Developments/International Affairs

2.) Modelling/Hobby section

3.) West Philippine Sea/South China Sea issues forum (mirroring PDFF's own WPS forum)

4.) sub-forums for China section:
     a.) Taiwan
     b.) Dissent in China: (dissidents, Tibet, Hong Kong, Xinjiang)
     c.) Chinese military expansion and economic power

5.) Miscellaneous (movies, humor, Pinoy culture etc.)

6.) sub-forums for Philippine politics
        a.) Charter Change? Federalism or not?
        b.) Drug War/PNP issues forum
   
It's your call, but those are what I can think of at the top of my head.

MS,

Opus has a plan, that I can assure you and all but it takes time- we are always talking about it; nevertheless thanks for your unsolicited advice; there are more variables than what you see in where and how Opus intends to steer the forum to - and in this time and age of too many defense fora and groups of a similar vein, we have declared Timawa as not competing with any group for that matter.   I don't know if you are in the PDD in FB but there you will a glimpse of what and how the reborn Timawa is evolving as most if not all members here are from the old Timawa and current members of PDD; most questions are answered there, FYI.  Opus is kept well abreast of whats going on that would be relevant in what the forum will address, thus his decisions are based on numerous factors that jive into a decision point. HTH  8)

It's good to be back.

We have much to catch up to.

Opus, I doubt you'll be bringing back the Babe of the Day thread with the Me Too and all.

Miggye!
