    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

News Items
.
Can English and Hindi news items be seperated or listed on different links?
I like to flick through the news items daily, but find there are so many Hindi news items, but I can't read Hindi, I'm guessing that Hindi readers would also prefer to just view Hindi news items.

All admins need not contribute to News Forum. But, I regularly visit and make use of postings in the News forum. I do not know Hindi; I find it difficult to scroll through all the posts in Hindi and read the posts in English. I hope that there may be few more like me (Of course may not be majority). What is wrong in providing separate box for the benefit of people like me?

good suggestion but this should happens like a separate tab which could have english news item and main tab should have all because validation for separating English news from hindi or other language will be easy and ease for reader as well.

Sorry that your suggestion was lost. We shall take immediate steps to separate out the Crime/Accidents section into a new tab.
Thanks.

A new News tab Crime/Accidents has now been introduced to separately display such news items. Since these news items are not of direct and immediate relevance to the rail-travelling public, they no longer displayed under the default "All" tab. Admins are requested to edit any existing Crime/Accident related News they see in the main section, and label it accordingly, so that it disappears from All and appears in the Crime/Accidents tab.
Thanks.

Thats a nice feature Sir but with the current facility it is not possible to go for extensive search in the news forum.
A Search Box with multiple search options should be introduced both for main blog and news forum. The current Google Search present in the news forum isnt of much help to the information seekers.
