    What would you do if there was no Thai based Forums.

    Whilst forums are great to find info and get to know people in the country your residing, and spending idle hours just having a laugh or in some cases ranting about your life and how unhappy it is.

    I don't get it,some people are members of every forum in Thailand, and spend hours going from forum to forum.

    What i don't get even more, is some members have never been to Thailand or have no intentions of coming but post on a forum.

    What would you do if there was no forums.?

    As some here can attest I pretty much stopped posting on forums between 2007-2010 while living in Thailand. At least that's how I remember it. Will have to take a gander at my posting history.

    Quite right. They can be very useful at times. and they can be fun too....at times. Knowing when to stop is an important part of enjoying forums.....there are plenty of posters who don't know when to step back unfortunately. You can find many of them in the TD jail.....

    This is because they have no meaningful life. Forum fanatics posting in every thread....it must be just another form of addiction. These types usually have very high post counts but never really say anything much, and tend to specialize in short, vapid and meaningless comments on every subject known to man.

    Probably got kicked out of every other forum they tried, and ended up here as a kind of last desperate attempt at getting attention.....these types will engage in pointless circular arguments till they drop.....they will always have to have the last word, no matter what.....

    Same as before there were forums.....we survived somehow, and found things to occupy ourselves....many people still do...
    I blame the Americans......and Thaksin.

    You got one of them 'selfie sticks'?

    Heh...I was 're-gifted' by some 'friends' with one of those and it's yours if you want it.

    Got to get a smartphone first, I suppose.

    Something I aspire to, then there will be no stopping me:
    Stroller having breakfast
    Stroller on his bike
    Stroller in front of his car
    Stroller with his ducks
    Stroller having a cigarette
    Stroller sitting outside
    .....

    Loads of likes and nobody will call me names!

    I'd probably notice a large gap in the forum market and start one.

    Nice friends you have . . .

    Hmm, not a lot different as I post while working, well, while in the office. It's a pass-time and it certainly doesn't impact my time off, in the sense that it stops me doing anything different (important different).

    Anyway one measures it, there are certainly some that take all this forum shit much much much too seriously - regardless of thematic.

    Would not DO anything.
    Certainly Thai centric sites are a valuable resource with a certain entertainment value but at some point they will perhaps outlive their utility.
    Meantime still fun to visit...gotta love the the shit fights..oops light hearted banter...555

    I do not do Forums, I do only one forum TeakDoor being it.

    My main reason for staying is the first hand Information I learn from good posters. I've picked up many useful tips regarding Thailand and met quite a few members now.

    Would never of happened without this forum.
