All India Discussion Threads
Dear OhMojo Users,
We have added a new feature in the discussion forums to allow users across multiple cities to have common discussions with each other. These "All India" discussion threads will be visible to users of all cities across India.
If you would like to create an "All India" discussion thread, select "All India" as the State and City while creating the thread (after you select "India" as the country). This will make the thread visible to all users across the country.
Please do remember that this feature must be used for only discussions that are relevant irrespective of location. Local cruising and other discussions must be posted in city specific forums.
Hope this triggers more interaction and constructive discussions among ohmojo users across cities.

Excellent initiative. But where can we look in for those treads. May be you should also think about providing options for universal discussions. Many of the atrocities faced by the LGBT community are universal. Maybe such a initiative will bring in together the world LGBT community and might reinforce the struggle against LGBT discrimination. It would also help the members to understand the magnitude of the problem in each country.

You see the list on top. Many of the new threads are all India

Thank you everyone for all the suggestions posted in public as well as those who have sent it privately.
To answer a few questions:
1. Where do these "All India" threads and posts appear?
The "All India" threads appear on the homepage of the website along with the city centric threads. These threads get added to the homepage regardless of which city your profile is set to. No extra steps are needed for you to view these.
2. Local Threads are getting less visibility!
Some people have raised concerns that Local Threads are getting lost because of the "All India" threads. The reality is quite the opposite. When the "All India" option was added, the number of new threads as well as number of "latest posts" were increased. The former was increased from 10 to 15 and the latter was increased from 20 to 50! This overall has actually resulted in more local posts becoming visible even though they are mixed with "All India" posts. For e.g if today 35 local posts and 15 "All India" posts happened, the homepage will show all of these. So where earlier only 20 local posts were visible, now you will actually see more of the local posts. This is the typical trend we have seen since the introduction of "All India" threads. Although technically it is possible that you might see more "All India" posts too which will happen in case there are more "All India" posts and less "Local" posts.
3. Why not option for universal threads ("All Countries")?
OhMojo right now is very India centric. More than 95% of the traffic we get is from India. So a universal option would hardly be any different from "All India". In case this changes in the future, we will definitely look at providing this option.
4. Why don't you increase the limit on private messages? (unrelated but the most frequently asked question!)
Unfortunately, the amount of messages sent privately on OhMojo is just too big. If we do not keep this limit the entire server space will get utilized in no time and the website will slow down a lot or will stop functioning altogether. So this is a compromise we have to keep using. We were considering introducing a paid option for unlimited messages but I feel that it will not really give us enough volumes to be able to actually upgrade our servers. Not many guys in India sign up for such paid services.
5. Why are general discussion threads appearing in the "Cruising" section?
The OhMojo forums was originally designed only for Cruising Spots and related discussions. However there have always been demands for allowing general discussions. After many years of resisting, we started allowing general discussions on the website about 2-3 years ago. Unfortunately, we were not able update the design to show the cruising and general discussions separately. We are aiming to take this up soon and hopefully you will see the 2 discussions appearing separately. We are not able to give an ETA on it right now though.
6. Where can we send suggestions or feedback about the website?
Please feel free to send me a private message on this profile (Profile name: OhMojo, Profile Number: 1). Please do note that the Admin is not available for hookups so messages on those lines will remain unresponded.

Kudos!! Good initiative by Ohmojo admin. Also thanks for publishing such detailed FAQ too. Now many of the common topics which are relevant irrespective of which part of India you are will not just be confined to the city group he belongs to, rather gets a wide range of audience and responses! Cool! Many very interesting topics too already!
Only sad part is the very last point mentioned by Admin that "Admin is not available for hookups" :) :) :)
