If You Have Something Random to Say About Khmer440.com

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

As much as many people hated the way KiR ran K440, he WAS K440. Love him or hate him.

Scobie just can't possibly carry K440 to victory. He is too business minded with it and has fully lost the edginess that it used to have. The members and mods seem to be realizing they're just pawns in his game and he has no real interest in leading a Cambodian based expat forum.

You regularly see the old-timers blowing up over there and venting their frustrations over the new Cambodia Parents Network rules and regulations that they ask have to abide by now in Scobie's attempt to turn it into a money making machine, LoL. He bought himself a time consuming hobby, nothing more. I hope he realizes that sooner than later.

I honestly think he'll be less popular than KiR in no time at all, based on the way he operates. No respect for people's privacy, etc.

Buyer's remorse seems to be setting in with him now.

Also, poor Gavin seems bored to tears over there. I even witnessed him deleting the numerous words "fuck" out of a post! Ha! I almost died laughing thinking what Gavin was going through! That's rough! He would have keeled over from boredom this week if it hadn't been for a thread about inviting bar girls to a wedding and an obvious troll that said they were looking for a girl named "Srey" or something similar in Golden Sorya Mall.

The only one that seems to have lucked out over there is PlayBoy, who is now on a Rank changing mission, which is all he wants, LoL!

I agree that they have had a higher post count this week, but it's been stale for the most part.

I think Scobie will soon realize that although KiR seems to have been hated as of late, he carried the site all by himself. Scobie can't do that.

I believe Scobie had 2 goals when he bought K440:

1) To turn it into a money making machine, regardless of what any of the members cared for.

2) He had the money to buy it, and he couldn't resist all the fame/prestige he thought owning it would bring.

He's starting to realize that nobody gives any more fucks about him, now that he owns it.

It's super funny because many people first complained that CEO was too PC/friendly, but now K440 is G-Rated, bland and CPN friendly, LoL. The irony now, LoL.

Yes, we've been a little slow this past week too, but we really appreciate everyone's effort to step it up, like Richard and Soi Dog who have really thought of cool thread ideas, and others. Can't thank you all enough!

We've also been getting a fair amount of new people finding CEO, so that's pretty good too!

The Dragon and I have a lot of random tweaks and changes we've discussed and will implement, and a lot of it is ideas we've gotten from all you guys that have been helpful and offered your feedback, good and bad. That's why we really do like getting any and all feedback from everyone, not just the pats on the back.

And it's flattering when Scobie copies us! He knows we're still onto something good and he's gonna lose everything over there if he doesn't shape up. It's really funny because I remember a conversation with him before CEO was really popular and he was calling us crazy for not letting people flame newbies for a certain number of posts, and now he's realizing that he was wrong, LoL.

Anyways, CEO is a lot of fun for many of us and growing! If I told you how many threads I'm behind in reading, you'd laugh at me.

And I apologize to all that I've been too busy lately to post a lot and get more involved, but jumping around the planet and changing jobs has gotten a lot of my attention this past month! Things are already falling into autopilot here, so I now have a lot more free time to fuck around online again! WooHoo!

So, if Scobie can ever be as dedicated as KiR was, and without his faults, he "can" turn it around over there, but I feel it's unlikely. Good or bad, K440 has lost their 11+ year leader and was bought out by a poster that has never been popular and it seems the posters are waking up to this realization now. Even the mods don't seem as enthusiastic for Scobie as they were before. Can't blame them. Image
GM, you know I've been a fence sitter through this whole thing, and have expressed my enjoyment of both sites. However, some of your comments above just sound bitchy and borderline KiR-esque. Relay facts and provide your opinions, but it's a fine line between that and being catty.

Actually, not. There's obviously a forum niche that's not being met by dedicated Thai forums, so why not? As stated, there's action on both forums in the Thai threads...
Richard, you'll need to forgive SC. He's only been in the country for 4 or 5 months, so not really an expat yet! :whip:
And yet here I am - deal with it. Not like you to stoop to twattery, but I won't lose sleep on it.

SC if u cant find it on teak door or Thai visa.........

There is IMHO no room for another forum on Thailand

You even have patttaya addicts for the whoremongers

Forgot to mention the Cambodian forum that sees a few posts /day http://www.livingincambodiaforums.com/ipb/


End of the day, its the posters that count ( good to see many of the assholes that were here, are now gone or have crawled back into their hole.)

One thing i positively LOVE abut here it that so far the "Nazi Grammar people" have not come over. Just cause sometimes we misspell a word or leave out a comma does not mean EVERYONE does not get it. :thumb:

Agreed, because they have a common interest other than whore-town. I like how those guys and gals stay on topic and never flame.
