RU Centennial (29)

Update : June 14, 2020 (Updates are in bold italics.)

Members

  • As of October 21, 2019, there are 6900+ members, 20000+ posts and 60+ albums.

    There are 30000+ members.
    
  • Kudos to the active members, who help the group grow by posting interesting, informative and often nostalgic articles and photos, by providing facts and data in the comments, by sharing selected posts and last but not the least inviting their friends to join the group.
    
  • Members are requested to follow the Netiquette (Etiquette when using networks). For example :
    No spam and advertising
    No link to irrelevant sites
    No flames (e.g. avoid calling names)
    Be courteous (e.g. disagree diplomatically)
    
  • It is difficult if not impossible to read all the posts and the relevant comments.
    However,
    (a) One can save selected posts.
    (b) One can share selected posts.
    (c) One can go to the “Popular Topics” section organized by Dr. Nyi Thet Lwin (Admin of the Group) and select a Topic.
    
  • Due to the transition to Unicode-compliant fonts, one may not be able to read some postings (e.g. using the early Zawgyi fonts).
    For some reason, Zaw Decode (which can read Unicode almost perfectly and Zawgyi with 80 – 90% accuracy) no longer worked on some systems (especially after an OS upgrade).
    It is not convenient, but it is possible to have multiple Burmese fonts and manually switch the “preferred” one.
    
  • Dr. Nyi Thet Lwin (Admin) and his brother U Aung Mon (Moderator) have used Translation Software to convert selected posts (using Unicode compliant fonts) to Zawgyi and vice versa.

    No easy fix for the Unicode/Zawgyi problem.

Albums

  • I have created 60+ albums using the photos from the posts (with credit given to the source where ever possible) and the photos from my archives.
