    Siamak Suggests

    Saturday - January 1, 2000     12:04 AM


    I don't know if this has been brought up before or not, but how about having
    a bay area iranian's yellow pages with a list of all the Iranian
    restaurants, bakeries and other Iranian stuff. People can also give their
    feedbacks on the food and service. Going to a chelo kababi is always one of
    the events I am looking forward to every week!

    It would be good to have a list of Iranian-owned professions in the bay area
    as well so you can easily find an Iranian lawyer or an Iranian owned firm.
    Maybe even help Iranians find Iranian employers, employees or investors?
    Kind of like what silicon Iran is doing? Maybe make Ramin Farjad a partner?
    There should be some money in that...

    And (as I said before) maybe even help Iranian students find a school in bay
    area. Which schools have the most Iranian students and professors? How
    should they apply? The cost and etc.

    I also think we should make sure that the web site is very well organized.
    It's kind of inconvenient to go through a long email from farshid ketabchi
    and figure out if there are any movies playing... so there should be a
    "what's playing (movies)" section, a separate "parties" section,
    "advertisement" section and "other events".

    Also maybe later we can have a feature where Iranians could find their
    Iranian buddies in the bay area... And remember I will only make this my
    home page if it has today's news on it (and links to newspapers)! Now all
    this kind of reminds me of other websites (such as payvand)! Still I think
    it would be cool to have one reference for whatever Iranians in bay area

    There should also be a link so anybody could directly donate money to help
    me pay my house mortgage.



    take a look at it has everything (including events per country) and you can add your own event... I guess the biggest problem with that is that it is not always updated. I don't like how things are organized there either. is born

    A Moderator's Guide to Posting Events

    1. First of all, make sure that the event you're trying to enter has not already been added to the system by someone else.

    2. Open

    3. Login to the system using your username and password. [Note: Your username is usually 7rooz-yourname]

    4. Click the "New Entry" under the "Persian Events" box.

    5. Fill out the information:
      = Title: Title of the event
      = Category: Location (or multiple locations) of the event
      Note (example): If the event is both in "Bay Area - South Bay" and "Bay Area - Peninsula", simply choose "Bay Area" option, if available.
      = Entry body: Most important lines of the event (Date, Time, Location, Contact Info, Summary, etc.)
      = Extended body: Any other information related to event

    6. You won't need to change anything else, just hit "Save"

    7. Wait for a few minutes till the system builds the data.

    8. IMPORTANT... IMPORTANT...: On the next page, scroll down and type the exact time and date of the event. This is a very important step to keep the site organized. For example, for an event taking place at 7:00PM of January 24th 2004, type: 2004-01-24 19:00:00

    9. Hit "Save" again. You're almost done!

    11. If you want to add an image from the web, please use this method (replace image URL with yours):
      <img src="{}" align="right" />
