    Why does 'Bangkok' appear under my 'name'

    When I registered I did not state in any fields that I am from Bangkok - because I'm not.

    Can someone please explain this old duffer why I am shown as "Mobi Bangkok" and how do I get rid of Bangkok?

    Thanks

    The board administrator "did" something to the forum a couple of weeks ago and doesn't know how to fix it.

    Ahh so it's human error.

    I supose I could say something unflattering about the Admin and question their intellect, they might have forgotten how to ban me

    It's to do with search engine optimisation, so that when people search for, say, Karon Beach, we have loads of posts featuring it, pushing TD higher in the 'Search Engine Wars'.

    When you surpass 1000 posts, you can edit the title to say whatever you like, such as 'Dirty Dog drives a woman's car'.

    thanks for the replies folks.

    At least I know it was nothing I did, and there's nothing I can do about it.

    I feel quite comforted

    It's near Chiang Mai. It's actually called Cardiff Noi and it's a bit like the Chinatown districts you find in many places around the world, only this one is populated by dwarves with funny accents.



    I took this picture a couple of weeks ago. For some reason they all put their hands up when I said I was English. The chap in the middle was actually quite tall for a Taffy. He must've been 5'2" at least. Maybe he was a half-breed?

    Funny lot...

    I was thinking about that too, but then again, i am from Bangkok, so i thought it was some kind of automatic thing where a software would track your ip and then automatically set up the proper location.

    He said he was not from Bangkok, but then again, he might have just moved to Pattaya...

    hmm, now mine says, Karon Beach
