    No. I too think that it should be updated. There are many varities mentioned there that seem to be antique at this moment. I suggest that we can divide volunteers into several groups (based on their choice... called democracy ) and then they come up with varities after discussing it off this forum. And then our moderators will
    surely have an easy task to replace the content.
    Any comments???

    #1 - Kwun, I was wondering if we could have a section on 'Downloads' where we could all contribute our own stuff such as wallpapers, screensavers etc, made by BF members themselves. I googled (a verb...)
    the web and found no decent looking badminton wallpapers, or at least those that pleases me...

    With graphics designers, engineers, artists within the thousands, I'm sure we can actually come out with a major lot of quality stuff to post. Come to think of it, BF'd be badmintoncentral for media as well.

    #2 - Photo Gallery contributed by members. The moderators can choose to remove them if deemed inapproriate. Categories could include individual photos while executing a jump smash ala badmintonphoto or a shuttle-shaped hat? Tournament mugshots, highest stack of shuttles, a badminton birthday, photo with players.

    #3 - Akhem, from 'Cupid' thread, perhaps an agony aunt corner? Badrad would be Dr Lurve.

    #4 - I agree with Chewy there, the bio section is hardly... full... perhaps to make thing easier, split to two parts : 'Heroes of Yesterday' and 'History in Progress'.

    Thanks.

    Don't know about #1, probably not enough space and bandwith at present to include that section. Higher cost for more resource too.

    #2 is a great idea!

    #3 is a better idea... question is... will Badrad take the mantle of heavy responsibility for salving our souls?

    #4 is a good idea... but it's gonna be a huge task splitting the relevant threads from Tournaments and General forums.
