BanglaCricket.com is a ghost town. Why don’t the admins do something? Forums like ICF and Pakpassion has lots of admins that always come up with different things to keep users engaged. Why BC admin happy with mediocrity?

Most of them don’t want to pass on power. Many mods/admins retired. Yet there’s no rush to add new ones, or take the titles away from the old ones. Simply they are letting BC drown. It’s not the members, it’s the top management. Lack of incentives from them feeds off to members.

ICF and Pakpassion do a lot to keep members engaged. BC hardly does anything.

BC top management is turning far worse than BPL committee.
saddened at how they are letting BC die.

For the sake of reviving BC Nasif Should step down from his position.

He does not have a vision for BC. Lacks creativity! Doesn’t have a clue what to do.

Nasif even failed upgrading BC - than he said will try again in the summer or something.
Now it’s nearly one year since the failed upgrade.

The problem is at the head. He should sell BC or find better people to run it.

The only people that tried to keep bc alive from the senior team are

Nightwolf and Jadukor! They have been regular posters here.

The active mods try their best to keep it going.

But when the head doesn’t have a vision for BC what can the mods do?

Time Nasif resigns and gives it to someone with a better vision/skill/ability etc

Yep. That’s why I’m telling Nasif to sell the forum.
He doesn’t have any vision with BC!

Why keep hold of something that your not interested in improving?

Nasif should come out and put BC up for sale. I’m sure they will find the right owner.
The owner/owners that will take BC to a new level and revive it.

Under Nasif leadership/ownership it has been going down.

"Some people stand in the darkness
Afraid to step into the light
Some people need to help somebody
When the edge of surrender's in sight

Don't you worry
It's gonna be alright
Cause I'm always ready
I won't let you out of my sight."

It’s very difficult when the forum is privately owned.
Unless the owners take incentive to change and improve, nothing will happen.

It would be a blessing for all of us BC members if the owners sell BC.
Give it to people that can take BC forward.

I highly doubt this will happen.

Should encourage more Indians and Pak lurkers to register and post regularly. Encounters of different nationalities, lively and often spicy discussions, people with diverse opinions and thoughts are some of the key elements of a popular and vibrant forum. Pakpassion would be a boring place without Indians and Bangladeshis same is true for ICF. I have no issues with the mods here but I think some members can be a bit more tolerant dealing with who they think are trolls. I am not saying you guys are any less welcoming or anything but phrases like "Go back to your own forums" or "you are not welcome here" is what drives the lurkers and potential members away. And of course it would be great if the old members could take some time off their busy schedules and post here a little more often.

User engagement and retention is the main issue.

ICF/PP do a lot to keep users engaged. For retention (cool point system etc)

I received more love and affection here than any other forum and I don't see why that can't be extended to new members here. A little pat on the back can encourage people to contribute more than what they usually do.

Most old members are gone and probably ain't coming back, BC is struggling to deal with that fact. I am sure they were all amazing members and their no longer here is a huge loss to BC but this forum must move on and try to introduce fresh blood. People will come and people will go and BC needs to evolve and keep rolling. I agree with you btw on the user retention point.

Do you want to donate money for the upgrades or maintenance? If "no", then we end our conversation here.

Roy, You get the admiration and true affection here in BC because of your own kind, loving and highly respectful demeanor, the way you engage with people and the way you show respect to the people, culture, history of Bangladesh and also for people's religious sensitive faith (in this case Islam as most majority of Bangladeshis are of Islamic faith and look at the way you wish Eid Mubarak, look at the way you address people here, when you don't come from an Islamic faith background. You are Bengali Indian, I see you as a man who is very modest, yet proud of your Indian heritage, your Bengali culture and literature and everything Bengali and show respect and admiration for Bangladesh as an independent entity, you understand and honor BD people's thought process and very particular sensitiveness) - that is often very rare and superbly admirable.

There are few others Non-Bangladeshi gems like Roy that are active a lot here in BC.
aklemalp - Guyanese - South American Sikh (Paramanand Singh)
Brockley - White protestant Australian
Gowza - White Australian
Horizon - Indian

Roy, without you and the guys listed above BC wouldn't be complete and the way it is today.

Then we also have Bharat, IanW, Padoshan, Pritikul, Zainab, Xaviar, Tintin - they don't post as mush, but always keepign up with BC by occasional posting.

I have been hearing BC is getting dead from the day since I joined. Ofcourse many active members are missing today but new members are keeping it alive. In next coming years more new members will gradually come in to keep it alive. Its a cycle, eventually at a certain point in life people come to realize they can have better ways to utilize the free time to serve.

But I hope in near future there will be more such cricket forums based on Bangladeshi cricket fans.

We use to chat a lot more because there wasn't any streaming. Trying to get any info during or after the match. How did Prince bowl today? Each and every sentence by someone who saw the game, was religiously read. It was different.

Bro.... I meant, marry abroad in the country your staying in. Per se, I live in australia, I'd want to marry someone from Australia.

The thing is, I am gonna get a lot of hits for this. BD girls 90% of the time cannot acclimatize to the change of culture so suddenly. That leads to the stuff you just said above. They try to hard to "fit in" and lose their traditional values and ethics.

That's why you see so many Deshi girls in Western Sydney, completely neglect their heritage.

Here is the thing I learned from Kindle Publishing lol..

You can have the NEXT BEST IDEA... heck you can even write the Next Big American Novel, but if you don't sell a copy it won't mean jack.

These are things you need to aggressively pursue: 1. whether it be running a forum; 2. whether spreading the message of a newly published book; 3. or even operating Nike.

Heck if Nike is soo great why tf do they spend billions in advertising? Heh... life is not that easy.

1. Aggressively spread the word; don't spam
2. Maintain quality, but hey the old adage of 'qualtiy over quantity' is down the drain.. gone are the days of elitism and hating "jodu modu kodu"... in modern day and era, ENGAGEMENT AND TRAFFIC IS EVERYTHING
3. Aggressively spread the word via Social Media like Twitter, Facebook BC page, Youtube etc. I mean FFS look at ESPNCricinfo, they are giant and they are constantly tweaking and improving... I mean now they got the "member post" as status on Cricinfo FB page
4. Spend money either in advertisement or passionately taking interest in the page you love and dedicate time and CONSCIOUSLY have vision to improve and expand empire

Sure members are to blame. But we speak the truth and we speak critically when we need. Last thing you guys need is to shut us down.

It does speak volumes when Admins or Mods take laid back approach and harbor IDGAF mentality. IDGAF? What makes you think we members will then?

You really need a plan and vision to expand. Don't just bicker 'oh oh it's FB... they stole our shctick...oh poor quality posts and threads... oh poor quality jodu kodu modu members..."

Please. Stop it. At least own up that you weren't putting time and effot. I know MANY staffs who didn't put a single drop of ink into editing. It was all myself and Nasif and JD (Zunaid) in the past. If you don't like an article then man up and say it. Instead of being pansy and playing the avoidance card. These same staffs wear the badge proudly and come out of their woodwork when there are articles in the q they "like".

Heck, many times when I knew I won't be able to contribute I even pleaded to forfeit my title.

Man up, take responsibility for your actions and to quote that dumbass meathead Jocko Willinck... take EXTREME ownership.

Frankly to reiterate, if you don't care, why should we?

Members can be half-right as well you know. Clearly y'all don't have all the answers. This idea just cuz y'all got degrees and superior seniority complex and rest of us don't know anything is frankly grossly insulting.

And...lol I like the amount of Dunning-Kroger syndrome some prominent senior arm chair members reeks. If you were the ish.. and had all the answers, clearly you wouldn't spend your sorrya-- on internet forum ripping players' lives apart. Of course I am talking about those know-it-all stuck up "authority figure" minded members only.

90% of the members are cool. Heck if it was like back in the days when the elite ran and ruled, I probably wouldn't be back. Guys like Roy1, Shadow, Yankee, Jadz, tonoy, Tigers Eye, akle, Dinraat... makes me wanna come back.

Cut with the elitism sh--. Treat others like the way you like to be treated, and respect others like the way you like to be respected.

Edit: And also regarding issue of religion, well guess what? Not everybody shares the same view. Not everyone needs to respect all faith and view. Stop being the white sheep and white knight. Goody goody is a disease. In an open forum with different people with different opinions with different views, there will be bound to be different egos. Stop exerting YOUR beliefs on others on what or how should people behave regarding religion. Just cuz it's Islam doesn't mean they get a free pass. Pssh... just go to an unregulated, unmoderated forum like Facebook or Youtube and spout that nonsense. You will get murdered by international community.

I brought up religion because it is clearly a sensitive topic resulting in many bans and infraction and melee.

We come here for the cricket, and in the process, we get distracted by the other colorful topics being discussed across the forum. It's like the tip of the iceberg. You know that it's there, yet you go full on Titanic towards it.

There is only one thing to do: steer clear of the iceberg. You don't want to be a Jack. Even if you decide to ignore warnings, we can steer you off the collision course. You have to meet us halfway though...we have biryani and warm comforter

:floor:

You seriously did not agree with that part ... :big_hug: I expected you to be the last person to agree with this part. :)

No my point being.. Should we respect other people's faith, religion, culture and traditions and even other as humans no matter his status or rank? ABSOLUTELY!

But not because someone tells us or because it is "right thing to do"... but merely because in the deep inside of our heart of hearts we are really good. Humans are good. We humans have humanity. We are all spiritual beings. And we ALL know.. we KNOW what is right from wrong. Deep in our instincts and intuition and CONSCIENCE we know.. we KNOW right from wrong and that we are supposed to be kind, compassionate and respectful towards others. The moment one monopolizes and tries to govern this niche is when things become a little bit more...rowdy.

By the way, Adnan, personally I appreciate all your recent support. You are very patient and matured. Love your growth and hopefully I will be able to take some of your patience and tolerance and learn from you myself.

Thank you for your service. lol..

You seriously did not agree with that part ... :big_hug: I expected you to be the last person to agree with this part. :)

No my point being.. Should we respect other people's faith, religion, culture and traditions and even other as humans no matter his status or rank? ABSOLUTELY!



well thats surprising to know why you would think I am the last person to agree with the quoted part. anyway surprise or not I agree with that wholeheartedly.

we should respect all religion and no its not anyone's duty to shove down Islam or any religion down anyone's throat. A person also can be atheist in my view, he can believe whatever he wants, its his right.

Well, I think for a start mods here and few members need to be more tolerant. There are of-course some very good and tolerant posters like Zeeshan, Mufi, Aklemalp etc but sorry to say most moderators are very intolerant to counter views. Posters get banned here very soon if presented with a contrary view and hence this forum is going down. There is a thread of Dos and Dont Dos and if anyone violate that rule ban him for life but most of the time posters being called a troll and get a ban just for presenting his opinion.

I was banned for 6 months for just saying Ben Stokes has higher ceiling than both Shakib and Jadeja as an all rounder. I was dead serious and was not trolling. Even if you dont agree thats my view but does it justify a ban? Now a seriously good poster Eclipse got banned just because he was pessimistic about Bangladesh cricket. We outsiders think twice to put our point of view here in a fear of getting ban. Most posters don't want to be a yes man (which is never a purpose of any forum) and hence leave.

PP is tough place as well but when you get banned there you do have a match referee room where you can justify yourself and reduce your ban. Also they have so many posters, banning few dont harm them. Its a seriously well managed forum.

ICF is a completely different thing. Unless you absolutely cross all limits of abuse you wont be banned. I have rarely seen anyone gets ban there. There is a BD poster there named Prince_ who trolls there on a regular basis but never gets ban. Infact people loves his troll and most of the time he gets trolled back. But all in good fun.:lol:

In 2018, I request BC mods to be bit more liberal. Your cricket team has improved a lot...so posters will anyway flock into this forum. :big_hug::big_hug:

The best thing to do is stay away from BC, if your views are bit extreme/harsh, different, post it on ICF. No point sharing your views/opinion here, as it may lead to a ban. I have been on ICF forum recently, extremely tolerant people.

That's why I tend to post my views which are my thoughts (even though it maybe extreme/ different to the standard norm) on that forum. Zero Chance of getting banned in that forum.

And...lol I like the amount of Dunning-Kroger syndrome some prominent senior arm chair members reeks. If you were the ish.. and had all the answers, clearly you wouldn't spend your sorrya-- on internet forum ripping players' lives apart. Of course I am talking about those know-it-all stuck up "authority figure" minded members only.

90% of the members are cool. Heck if it was like back in the days when the elite ran and ruled, I probably wouldn't be back. Guys like Roy1, Shadow, Yankee, Jadz, tonoy, Tigers Eye, akle, Dinraat... makes me wanna come back.

Cut with the elitism sh--. Treat others like the way you like to be treated, and respect others like the way you like to be respected.

Edit: And also regarding issue of religion, well guess what? Not everybody shares the same view. Not everyone needs to respect all faith and view. Stop being the white sheep and white knight. Goody goody is a disease. In an open forum with different people with different opinions with different views, there will be bound to be different egos. Stop exerting YOUR beliefs on others on what or how should people behave regarding religion. Just cuz it's Islam doesn't mean they get a free pass. Pssh... just go to an unregulated, unmoderated forum like Facebook or Youtube and spout that nonsense. You will get murdered by international community.

I brought up religion because it is clearly a sensitive topic resulting in many bans and infraction and melee.

I will give you examples of good customer service so that you (as in all) have better understanding where I am coming from.
(Because at the end of the day being a CEO of a company or leadership or managing a forum is all about customer service and making each and every member happy with complete undivided attention to their needs. It's not about "Control" and "Power"; good leadership is all about engagement and being considerate.)

Two times I entered Wisden competition. And each time the way the editors graciously acknowledged my acceptance or submission made me feel like a winner already even though I didn't win. They were courteous and friendly and professional. They made me and I assume everyone who entered feel special. In Buddhism - and I am not bringing religion in here, it's more a way or philosophy- they say that the most important person in the room is the one in front of you. Good leaders bring the best out of you. They make you feel like million dollar person and give complete and undivided attention.

Similarly in many important movers n' shakers type of Facebook pages - such as Lego or Coca Cola- they take the effort and time to personally reply as many comments as possible tediously. Some are complaints, some are thanks..

When Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon was asked: "How do you deal with elitism?" by Google she promptly replied that gone are those and now they listen to public.

This idea that I will sit on my throne and lest I interact with people - the commoners, the mass, the hoi polloi- I will lose all my precious weight, prestige and gravity is outdated, is frankly insulting and speaks more about the insecurity of that person if not a misplaced perception of one's self-importance.

Watch the TV show Kyle XY. If I was God in real life, would I avoid interacting with average Joe Schmoe? No absolutely not. I'd be so much secure I'd engage in everyone's day to day lives and interact with everyone. Kinda like Caliph of Baghdad who played God and tested people.

The point being a self-actualized man has nothing to prove. He has no wants nor needs and engaging or interacting with people and paying attention to their needs and concerns does not tarnish their image least bit...

...instead it makes them even more magnanimous.

Heh... you learn a thing or two when study positive psychology.

Jokes aside the opposite is more justifiable for the Way this forum evolved for a decade or so. And anybody who thinks this forum is drowning need to take a hard look at the mirror and scream to oneself “I hate every single piece of garbage Z posts”. Not so easy really.
On your quip on being enlightened, I will have to admit how lucky I could be if I could avoid this daily struggle through purgatory channel of senses if was born like that, although I find Rousseau more meaningful than Voltaire nowadays. After all we as human species is distinguished not only by reason, but by this singular passion from other animals, which is a lust of the mind, that by a perseverance of delight in the continued and indefatigable generation of knowledge, extends the short vehemence of any carnal pleasure.

^^^Yeah I kinda agree. This forum hasn't gone down the drain. This forum is doing fine. It has existed and will continue to do so with or without member (read: aklemalp participation). Lol people just need something to get triggered to....

But I do stand by about the reprehensible customer service. If they had a Facebook page, I'd have downright written: "Run by bunch of power hungry mods". At least it was when I joined.

The judgmental tone some of them possessed/es is absolutely unacceptable and speaks of double standard who seems to uphold "values" and arbiter of "moral judgment" yet they have a sharp judgmental attitude about people rife with ASSUMPTIONS. I mean FFS they have a "Be polite" thread. LOL! :facepalm:

Something I just posted:

This is not a complaint nor grievance or suggestion. Rather a feedback.

I LOVE how amazingly tolerant the moderators and admins are in general. I know coming from someone who always finds fault.. but that's for checks and balances.

I'd go as far as to say, the mod-ship and the great vibes and the overall quality of members and their posts sets the gold standard and as exemplary as it can get for the rest of the world to follow suit and to model after.

Great job. Keep up the fantastic work. And let's face it... these guys Zunaid, Nasif, rs, RazabQ, Navo, Atimar...they weren't exactly born yesterday. They KNOW what they are doing.

Five stars.

Absolutely agree. But humor me this. Suppose Baby 1 is born in pristine condition. And we blame his parents Baby 2 and Baby 3 and society ... but they in turn are born pristine ... so where does this lead to?

Baby 0?

Adam and Eve? First temptation and original sin? I mean where did everything go hayfire and f-ed up in the first place?

I refuse to believe evil, racism, hate, war always existed and is part and parcel of our daily life. I don't think our 'shristikorta' made us that way. The only reason why evil exists is because WE want it that way. It kinda gets weird, strange and Twilight Zonish, but sometimes I noticed - NOT on weed- that if you expect drama, dramaqueens, negativity... universe doesn't disappoint you. You precisely get just that in return.

Should encourage more Indians and Pak lurkers to register and post regularly. Encounters of different nationalities, lively and often spicy discussions, people with diverse opinions and thoughts are some of the key elements of a popular and vibrant forum. Pakpassion would be a boring place without Indians and Bangladeshis same is true for ICF. I have no issues with the mods here but I think some members can be a bit more tolerant dealing with who they think are trolls. I am not saying you guys are any less welcoming or anything but phrases like "Go back to your own forums" or "you are not welcome here" is what drives the lurkers and potential members away. And of course it would be great if the old members could take some time off their busy schedules and post here a little more often.

Only if you are a creationist and inclined to theology then the answer can be found in all biblical references of major religions.
But if you follow Daniel Dennet you can find the actual answers to this hypothesis.
