This letter to you is not to request for Yahoo smileys, but for requesting something substantial.
Of late we have seen a lot of new online players come up who are churning out content and coming up with test series. Today my inbox is full of emails from both insights and iasbaba.
Insights has good questions and IASbaba has good magazine, but beyond that I do not find anything relevant in them. Because of your inactivity, a lot of users are forced to use substandard material or service, which I think with your experience and userbase, you can do much better job.
Here are few things, which even @gks
bhai had written about, but you did not pay heed.
1) In my college, a few seniors had joined your test series in 2013 ( Prelims ) I remember everyone was gaga over your test series initially because of the quality of questions . I remember a lot of my seniors said that your CSAT paper was more UPSC like than even CL. Your GS questions were also way ahead of Insights ( of that year )
But you later stopped all visibility of it. Ads disappeared from ForumIAS. You test was also not postponed twice ( like IAS baba and insights ) Next year you did not do any test series.
My question is why you don't do test series. There are a lot of ForumIAS members who would like to join your test series and you can charge for it.
2) There is 9 PM daily brief coming everyday. It is so comprehensive that if one follows it for 6 months, once can easily clear prelims as well as cover all current affairs for Mains. But 1) no one knows about it 2) there is no way i can get in my email even if I wanted to 3) there is no guarantee that it will continue till Mains 2015
Can you fix this? At least send email at 9PM everyday for the same or provide a method for us to subscribe to it!
3) Why dont you start some ILP like IAS Baba where you provide notes to students. Even fees like 2000-3000 per annum will not be very high , and many people would want it
4) ForumIAS interface has improved in past 1 month, but apart from that I don't see any innovation from ForumIAS.
5) Over all helpful culture of ForumIAS has gone down. There were members like Neanderthal Sir who are now no longer active. Your bakar thread is more popular than any other thread.
6) Coaching agents are everywhere on the forum. Because of advertising lot of people may have come. Please take care of all this.
7) Banking / SSC candidates are more these days and on everything they start being negative - name any test series Vision or GS Score, Sriram or Vajiram, they will start negative things about them. No one is giving proper review anymore.Quote: Some people are born great, some acquire greatness and greatness is imposed upon some.
Other people , also please come up with suggestions to improve the quality of ForumIAS and restore its former glory.
