Content, or lack thereof

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

^ Good stuff.

Sounds balanced to me. I'm also glad to hear some people enjoy the freedom of expression here.

And I imagine it's a struggle for most boards to try and keep things un-cliquey, but we (CEO as a whole) try very hard to make everyone feel welcome. I think I might off myself if I have to read another insider joke about PlayBoy drinking, Cambod eating pizza or Scoffer's computer skills, LoL. That shit is so 2010. Image



There is a thread going on right now about meet-up at a BBQ place, and I hope that anyone reading that feels comfortable showing up even if they don't know anyone else.

The previous CEO events we've had were a lot of fun, and I was glad to see a few random people show up alone and just introduce themselves (I believe that's how I first met Jaap, Ali Baba, WalkJiveFly, and others for the first time.).

I've seen them several times since. :thumb:

And yeah, content could be pushed a little more, but we've all been very fortunate that several members have really gone out of their way to start up random threads on whatever they find interesting, and some have been a success!

And any member is encouraged to start threads about any happenings around town that they might know of, both good and bad news.

A lot of interesting content comes from a random post by someone who has some info about an event or word on the street, and it takes off from there! So, if you find it interesting, chances are others will too!

Absolutely - I named a couple of couples in that thread (to encourage more partners along) but it should be stressed that any and all would be welcome, just step over Playboy on your way in the door. He'll (apparently) be the one lying on the floor, probably under the table.

Dammit. A PlayBoy and Cambod joke back-to-back.

I'm off to find a bridge and planning my jump. Image

GM,

You don't qualify for bridge jumping. You are not a depressed English teacher that is in a crappy rock band.
