    I turned on signature as an experiment.

    Right now, it is only available to regular members, which is anyone who has registered for more than 30 days AND have 10 or more posts.

    It is limited to one line, 140 characters, no links, no images. I know. a lot of limitations. ;)

    Let's see how you guys likes it. :D

    I am seeing a lot of "sent from my latest smartphone via Tapatalk". Is it because of the signature experiment?

    Sorry, I'm guilty of that recently too. I think it's due to Tapatalk app forgetting the preferred settings when it updated in the past week.

    The font size for quotes is too small. They are already on a shaded background, Even the same font size as the regular text can provide enough distinction and de-emphasis.

    too much of arguments and bickering at the badminton forum clearly spoils the actual purpose of this forum. Joining this forum is good so we can get the latest updates about badminton.





    Looks like nobody want to lose the arguments and people just keep on arguing. Fights cannot be avoided.




    I wonder what would people around the world say when they read this. I had friends who ask me this question. What is the purpose of the forum? Is it to fight non stop and keeps on arguing? Just remember that anybody around the world can read the things posted here.





    So the best thing to do is think first before we write or post anything. If the things that we write can stir up heated arguments and chaos better don't write it. Also it is pointless to keep wanting to win am argument. Remember we may win the argument but lose a friend.







    So the best thing to do is we need to maintain peace in the forum. No point to keep on arguing. Only write in the forum if we have things to ask or things to write. Don't treat this forum as a place to release anger and stress.






    So the best thing is if you have nothing to write just keep quiet and don't need to write anything. Come on this is the 21st century already. Sometimes when I read the post written in this forum I felt as if world war 3 will start very soon. Of course we want to avoid this.





    To maintain peace on the forum, it is very important for everyone to cooperate and don't stir up sensitive issues here. Since 2 weeks ago I dare not post anything in this forum in fear of getting into constant bickering and arguments and fights.






    If can I also don't want to write this. But then constant bickering, heated arguments at the forum have prompted me to play the role of the peace maker in this forum.






    So please I beg everyone please help to maintain peace in this forum.

    Blabl your commitment to keeping peace in these forums is monk like and you are a real asset here. Petition @kwun and become a mod, since you are usually active during the important weeks.

    During MS final between LD vs LCW and the WD scandal in London 2012, BadmintonCentral was overwhelmed as there were so many people accessing the site.

    just wish it wouldn't happen again.
