    Hey, I have not been here for a while and everything has changed. What happened to the old BC where there was a whole section on tips given by Kwun? I was looking for those and I cannot find them. I miss them. :crying: lol Could someone please help direct me in the right direction? Thank you very much in advanced for any help you can provide.

    No no no. I was talking about a bunch of threads that Kwun had written which gave lots of random tips about almost everything in badminton and it was on the old BC when it was not really a forum and more like a normal website. Thank you for your quick reply though.

    You'd do well to use this function.

    I'm sure you'd know your way through it but, just in case...

    With 'kwun' in the username box, choose 'A Year Ago', 'Older', 'Ascending Order' and 'Threads' - you just might stumble on what you're looking for :)

    PS: I'm not sure if this embedded link works for you but you could try.

    It is possible that this wasn't in a thread but in an article on the Old BC homepage.

    I can't seem to find the BC homepage now - All redirects are to the Forum

    after the attack, i think kwun has closed down the articles and reviews section. no homepage for months. no longer able to access into those articles.
    Oldhand maybe misunderstand. the articles that vctrku means are those how to grip, what is important? it is shoe... etc. some other useful articles too. there is review section too. i mean old review section.

    If not mistaken..

    ..that's the same section which Matt was looking for and requesting for an update (regarding how to spot a fake racket by reading the cone code etc.)..
    *Btw, vctrku, welcome back!:cool:

    YES! Thank you all so much for understanding what I was looking for! But, I am really sad to hear they have been closed down. I spent a LONG time looking for that homepage. Anyways, thank you all for your help, I really appreciate it!

    PS. Thank you for welcoming me back!

    Kwun can't win..........Flamed for not updating & modernising the homepage then flamed for closing it down to prevent people thinking it is a dead site.

    There are many threads on How to recognise a fake racket (eg serial numbers) and grips on the forum so these things have not been "lost"

    Looks good. It just needs to be recontructed. The main reason why I kept pointing it out because the link is broken which is misleading and there is not action to take care of the problem which can be fixed in a relatively short peroid of time.
