    COuld you do a screen grab of the new site- just to make sure please.
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    They still have no members...

    They must be trying to compete with here, Boards.ie, Politics.ie and other places which have become the "go to" for people who want information, but couldn't get it from official sources.

    Its a fine looking site, does not look like someone created it for a sixth class computer project, like the old one. It ties in nicely with Flickr, youtube and other soial media.
    Well done.

    Now if they wouldn't mind partfunding IMO and linking to us as the DF forum that would be great.
    It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.

    Finally mangaed to get in.Looks good.cant see the forum really taking off as its DF run.Total freedom of speech/opinion may be an issue.PDFORRA had a forum on thier site circa 2003.Shut down fast when a load of cribs slating DF organisational skills appeared.

    Does anyone ever proof-read that site before going live with it? "Length" not "lenght" and the have a look at what it says under Naval Service - Training.

    Yeah I see a lot of spelling mistakes on the site as well, but that should be worked out in time.

    The main thing I noticed is that after going through every page in the career's section (and other sections) I didn't see a single mention of the recruitment ban.

    Should have been worked out BEFORE going live, as mentioned above

    Ya, went for a look yesterday and the pictures from the last website never made it. In fact there is very few pictures altogether on the site!

    For some reason when I click onthe "reserve" tab the page would not display properly until I zoomed to 125%.
    Its all right now.
    followed the forum link.
    Even looked at registration but it just throws up an error.

    I suppose all you PDF lads will be leaving IMO now that the DF have their own "sanctioned" board??

    I see also that it is all just a media excercise.
    Alledgidly for the RDF
    Tasks are assigned to the RDF to support the PDF in fulfilling these roles. These include:
    • Augmentation/reinforcement of the PDF.
    • Provision of logistic support.
    • Provision of armed escorts.
    • Augmentation of Naval Service on fishery protection patrols.
    • Staffing of Military Posts during periods of PDF deployment.
    • Radiological Monitoring.
    • Ceremonial Duties at national and local events.

    • Augmentation/reinforcement of the PDF. (Barrack Duties on weekends/holiday time)
    • Provision of logistic support. (Truck Drivers)
    • Provision of armed escorts. (to what?)
    • Augmentation of Naval Service on fishery protection patrols. (but not on any patrol where the use of ships armament may be required)
    • Staffing of Military Posts during periods of PDF deployment. (see point 1)
    • Radiological Monitoring. (when the Commies drop the big one...)
    • Ceremonial Duties at national and local events. (Paddys Day Parade unit?)


    Hard to justify the money spent....

    That depends on how you look at it - but that discussion is for the future of the AR thread

    See my above post for the reason why its unlikely we would migrate.
