Posting messages as a new member?
« on: March 09, 2008, 09:38 PM »
There are over 4,600 members registered to this forum.

Having eaten and cooked curries since my teens (back in the days of Slade & TREX), I believe this to be the best curry forum available worldwide.

Everything about cooking BIR style curry can be found here. Any questions are invariably answered within minutes.

However ...

... I am a little concerned regarding the lack of postings from new members and would like to understand why this is so ... hence the poll.

Regards
SnS  ;D

SnS, I've been a member here for a year and glad to say I'm a n00b and always will be :) I think basically it comes down to just how passionate about BIR curries a person is, this place is fairly technical, which is great if you're a curryholic, but there's not alot to post about once you've said whether you like or dislike a recipe as most questions have been asked and answered many times already on the board, so newbs don't actually need to post. I think all that this place needs is a bit of banter (I know not alot of people might not like it, but it does help newbies to become integrated into a forum.... :-\ )

Just mho ;)

I am a noob and my reason for not posting much is its a whole lot to take in.  As and when I try out the recipes I will and have posted, but to me its a confidence thing, i.e I haven't got a clue what you are talking about with the spices, techniques, reclaiming oil etc ???, it is all new and fascinating to me so I am spending most of my time reading and trying to take it in.  When you were making curries listening to Slade I was eating Vesta currys ;D.  It is a great site and i will be around for years to come.  Each recipe I have tried so far has been fantastic, even with my lack of skills, and a few ingredients which I am still on the look out for.

Cheers

Great post.
I'm one of those that likes to talk, (too much sometimes). But I feel community is everything and getting more people involved creates more interest and thus creates more people trying different recipes out.

I agree Sns. this is by far the very best curry forum anywhere in the world let alone the Internet dedicated to this subject. I hope everyone realizes my words are never light, I do mean that.   I've learned a bundle from this place which has lead to me asking questions locally too and this relates to your initial poll.

It's simple. Get involved and learn. I did, anyone else can too.
Anyone can cook provided they follow the basic principles after which time its really up to them about taste and such..

Again great poll, idea and post.
Regards,

CA :)

Hi Lee74,

Welcome to cr0. 

If you go back to the main menu, and click on the section 'Just joined?introduce yourself'
you will notice a tab to the right, that says 'New Topic'  Just click that, and a window will open up for you to introduce yourself, explain what you hope to achieve, whatever you like really.

I would suggest that you give this a go.  That way, more members  will be aware of you and will be able to offer you help and advice.

Hope this helps matey :)

I am not familiar with forums and at my age find it difficult (impossible ?) to understand all the jargon !  I wanted to 'introduce' myself, but although your site encourages a new member to do so there seems to be no clear instruction how to do this !! Maybe I'm just beyond it ?
Best regards,
