  • Thai Expat Forums. Running away or Leaving in disgust

    I see many familiar faces here from other forums. Some have done the rounds , bouncing from TV to TD and now to TC.

    Why does this happen ? There are plenty of ex pats living in other countries but why does Thailand throw up so many forum junkies ? Why do expats here seem to feel so strongly about the place ?

    On other Thai forums you find plenty of expats from the Phillipines, Indonesia, China etc ........ still posting on Thai Forums ?? What's the magnet ?

    Many of us will have seen Subzero come and go and wonder where Nawty is now I an curious as to why people change forums so often ?

    Clearly, over at TD there have been changes which a lot of the old guard don't like but what is the last straw that makes people leave and start afresh ? And what will you do if all the posters you don't like turn up here and troll the place to death ? Start another forum ?

    What makes you move on ? The idiotic trolls who never have a post deleted or the moderaters breathing down your neck ?

    Just curious .

    PS ....yea, probably done to death already but what the heck.

    Within Thai-expat themed forums, I believe these cycles of jumping around have gone on for years.....

    There has been social [because forums are social] and familiar changes to most of these outlets - just recently.

    Participation has dropped dramatically across the board.
    People are tired of the s_hit.

      TC has become a TD refugee locale.
      Really taken off in the last couple months......after an existence of 2-3 years [??].

      Might be interesting.
      We'll have to see where this goes.

      Good luck to all.

        Hey, I know that avatar! Good to see a quality poster here. For me the answer to your question is the above. I haven't posted here for a while- up to my neck in work- but I expect a number of them are here now as well.

          It's bad enough having a forum riddled with trolls, but when they get onto the moderating panel you just know it is time to move on.

            Yes, it does seem that an impartial mod is a pretty rare breed. For some the ' power ' is too much to handle ..........unless they are following new guidelines from the head honcho.

            I would have thought that apart from LM posts or insulting another members family etc , moderating should be pretty straightforward. I guess the worst part must be wading through pages of drivel when posters get to bickering.

              Nice to see you here. Also up to my neck in work right now ............much to my surprise. Good...getting a bit of much needed cash...........bad ............running around like an ant on a hot skillet.

                      ....the general quality and character of members that contribute regularly.
                      Long gone.

                      Today.....it's a mix of extrmists, nutters, ignorant c_unts, and trolls.

                        Another crowd I tire of are the ones who don't live here, or are only here half the year on tourist visas, getting drunk and whoring around, arguing with members who have lived here for a decade or more.

                          I am curious as to why people change forums so often
                          And what will you do if all the posters you don't like turn up here
                          At least one of them did and that more-or-less coincided with the last time I posted here.

                            Welcome in Z....
                            Unfortunately, the Thailand News/Affairs section at TD has become dreadful and death is at it's door. What use to be a very active and lively sub-forum is no longer......for whatever reasons.

                              On the same token, the news forum here is as dead as a doorknob. Lots of news stories, but no discussion at all.
