Q: Is there any differences from the feel and users from the early days?

A: not really. though we lost a few good ones.

Q: Why did you sign up with the forums?

A: because i was bored.

Q: What would you like to see be improved?

A: not very much. the mods are cool. and it's hard to tell the people who post to change themselves.

Q: What is your message to the younger members (age) of the forums?

A: to everyone in general, don't take everything on the forums as being the Truth, stop arguing about silly things and read Gurbani to understand what sikhi is really about.

Q: Is there any differences from the feel and users from the early days?

Yeah, seemed more relaxed before.. with more jokes.. Remember Kumi? *sighs*

Q: Why did you sign up with the forums?

No youth sangat available down here. I must admit, I've learnt quite a lot from this forum; Such as how not to beleive what everyone says, and be able to mentally filter out them, and ofcourse, about Sikhi. Since joining at December 05, i've changed considerably - Good AND bad - but generally have grown closer to Sikhi - Up to the point of Taking Amrit. Before, i was the average Punjabi Bhangra-remix-fanatic boy.

Q: What would you like to see be improved?

Nothing, its perfect :@ . LOL nah, I mean.. it will spoil the fun if things are improved.

Q: What is your message to the younger members (age) of the forums?

At first its extremely easy to beleive what everyone writes. Before taking account of an issue, ask lot's of users for their opinion, or even discuss the issue with someone in real life.. It helps!

Once you learn to do your own research and find a way of filtering out "wrong" answers.. You will find your knowledge has expanded so much.

O yeah, another thing; Theres nothing wrong in joking tongue.gif - We oldies have fun too!

Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa!

Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!

Q: Is there any differences from the feel and users from the early days?

Yes! In the beginning, there were few users, less controversy, and more SIKHI discussion. I think we have lost a lot of that in the recent bikerings... and now there are many different types of sikhs out there... causing many different types of 'discussions'.

Q: Why did you sign up with the forums?

I was a LOOONG time reader... for around a year, before I decided to join up. I loved everything about the forums. And my name Khalsa4ever... was actually to spite mr. AKJ4ever cause there is no such thing as an akj sikh!!

Q: What would you like to see be improved?

Less telling... more discussing. (most convos are now I'm right, you're wrong, and the blindness of people to even read what the other person has said).

Q: What is your message to the younger members (age) of the forums?

Listen to the truth. Sikhism isn't a blind faith religion. In fact, in reality "sikhism" isn't a religion... its a way of life. Understand why you are doing what you do... because otherwise its just a ritual, and then its fruitless. If you understand why things are done, you will understand the importance of sikhi, rehat, and the code of conduct that binds us all. Its more than just I do this because "someone said so". There is a reason. Investigate... discover... and learn!

Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa!

Q: Is there any differences from the feel and users from the early days?

This forum now feels like more of a community then it did earilier. Back then if anyone had a different opinion, or if they had anything that others didn't like there were automatically attacked. I remember my screen name being a issue for some. But over time the sangat became unified and cared less about the small things.

Q: Why did you sign up with the forums?

I felt that in the earlier discussions, not really now, there were some viewpoints that were not pointed out and I felt it was important to add to the discussions.

Q: What would you like to see be improved?

I think the forum is perfect the way it is.

Q: What is your message to the younger members (age) of the forums?

Try to be more religious by learning from others on this forum and others. That is the whole purpose of the forum. Learn to be proper in Rehit and stay in chardee kala. The reason that this <banned word filter activated> comes on the forum is to learn about Sikhi from the GurSikhs on this forum.

    • I have had this theory for some while  it is harder to abstain nowadays because we get married so late (into our 30s, or perhaps late twenties at best) back in the day Id be a father by 17 lol  not a excuse, just a interesting thought 
    • yeah I once used that point in a argument with some osho bhagat (from a sikh family) who said derogatory remarks on the other gurus, claiming guru nanak was the only enlightened one and that the rest *diluted* and corrupted guru nanak's message enshrined in japji sahib and the rest were all succeptible to emotions and panj chor (referred to "nis pyare seo neho" to say guru angad was attached to the mortal frame of guru nanak and was depressed when guru nanak passed away but I tried giving him a more accurate translation of the words) the guy kept on copying and pasting the same essay on mahantaa of sri japuji sahib in comments so I confronted him if he believed in japji sahib and then he got more osho type philosophical, basically proving he didnt believe in amrit bani but yeah shocker, the very japji he was praising had its salok composed by guru angad who he was belittling     it all started from him asking whether he was a sikh or a nanakpanthi (neither in my opinion, he was parroting his guru osho's words and I woouldnt be surprised that if osho had flipped his views on guru nanak this guy now would have been slandering guru nanak as well), i remember it pissed me off for the two days we went back and forth lmaoo 
    • I thought everyone knew I forgot which source, but I read it somewhere as a kid  At the moment, I can only recount bhai jagraj singh of BoS saying this a couples times, somewhere in his panj bania lecture or the japji sahib katha sikhs were asking guru maharaj for a morning bani, so guru maharaj blessed them with japji (I believe some were doing asa di vaar, at least as much was pargat by then, in addition as well but I may be wrong)  the sewa of compiling shabads into a japuji sahib was entrusted to bhai lehna (guru angad) at the time of gurgaddi divas of guru angad dev ji maharaj, he composed the salok to complete japji sahib (as the maha mantar was given by akaal purakh when guru nanak went to sach khand abode of paarbrahm kartar and guru nanak replied with the rest of mool mantar; I dont know some may differ with me and say brahmgyani and mahapursh are always in the STATE of sach khand but you guys get what I am trying to convey)   that is all I can recall for now but I will try to do more khoj onto this topic
