Ok People! - we need to know!!

Is this website - of any value to you? - does it help you - enhance your life in san diego?

We really need to know - as we considering whether to keep this alive or shut it down.

So obviously encouragement is welcome - but we also welcome critical arguments of how the website itself can be enhanced.

If you don't have an opinion - but heard one - somewhere - share that too.

So go ahead - give us a piece of your mind.

Thank you,

Kudos to the guys who took the initiative of starting this site....!!
Going thru this site u feel that u r in mini-India where people of all religions and culture are trying to come together and form one big chain where we all r INDIANS trying to help and guide each videsh...!!
Way to go guys and 3 cheers to all of you!!

A small suggestion maybe we can help each other on job related opportunities in various fields if possible.
We should make this network stronger if possible.

Thank you!! - ca120 - appreciate your feedback.

Frankly, we were disappointed when nobody answered this question - everybody seemed to be busy talking about being a punjabi or telugu/tamil etc..

Everybody wants to communicate using this platform -but nobody wants to acknowledge it - I suppose thats being a typical desi?...

Anyways, as our appreciation - we would like to offer you a free-lunch coupon for punjabi tandoor - you will receive the details of this offer in your registered email soon...

And to others who might be reading - please take time to write about this website- constructive critism is welcome - and not to forget applaud is ALWAYS welcome.

Thanks for your time.

  aban wrote on 2009-07-18 11:01:34 rocks! Itís very helpful and informative for every desi in various aspects especially for the people who are new to San Diego. I appreciate your effort and I am sure everyone else does it too.

I am new to this site and do not have any comments yet. I am not sure how many desis are visiting this site. I think there should be a counter put on the site so that we know how many people are visiting the site. People talk that there are no events or we should have more events. I posted Independence party event but so far only got one response. These events are good for meeting people from their own states or culture. I think this is a great platform and we should take advantage of it and appreciate all the efforts put to build this site.

ha!ha!..thank you coral_bay for your observation - well, we hope it would be more useful to you in the near future.

Question: do you think you & generally desi's would be interested in non-desi events calendar? -coz, there are tons of events happening in san diego - we will be happy to post them here.

oh! btw, we disabled the pic - bcoz of spammers - but once we have the manual-pic approval in place - you should be able to upload it then - I suppose we need to have a corner for admin to update - site issues -it will be added soon...

Thank you! aban - appreciate you postive feedback - its always good to hear that.

And we hear you hellodesi - sometimes it takes a while to get replies....thanks for your patience.

That said. please don't let this be the last message - keep sending your suggestions - as silly as they might seem - you never know - what really works - unless you try.

And we are more than willing to add more sections - if we have enough encouragement from the community....

Although I visit this website occasionally, i definitely feel its beneficial and of great use. I use it to find out various events going on around the area. When i first moved to san diego, i used this website to search for apartments and to get a brief idea of things around san diego. i was able to connect with quite a few people who offered there valuable suggestions on places to stay/eat. I even found a cricket group :). Places like Dallas/Austin and others all have their online desi website like eknazar. sandiegodesi acts as a similar and a better platform for desi junta in san diego. So, please keep it alive and going :). thanks.

Thanks for running this website - I visit frequently to check out the activities & classifieds - hope to see more entries under the Coffeehouse & Fun categories..

I recently joined this website and will be moving to San Diego in a week. I find it quite informative and would like to add one suggestion.

Is it possible for you to create activity based sub-groups for people to join? For example, a Tennis group, Hiking Group, Road Trip group, Cinemas, etc. just to name a few that I'd be interested in.

The current "desi singles" or "desi couples" or "desi students" seems to be TOO generic.. If people who share a common interest belong to a group, I'd anticipate greater involvement.
