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.

Okay, I see it's back to normal there now. I clicked over there this morning and got a totally different main page showing only a list of articles, with no pictures at all. Must have been a temporary glitch.

Maybe that's it. What now, you ask? Maybe nothing. Nothing now. Moving on....
LoL, again, you do raise a good point though.

When the tyrant was around, all we had to do was be "better" than him, which was freaking easy, LoL.

We are in a new phase and competing with Scobie takes more, as it should.

He definitely has a lot of work to do in order to re-brand K440. Personally, I wouldn't have tried that. They would be like McDonald's trying to re-brand as a health food store. You could do it, I guess, but that's quite a brand with a long reputation to turn around.

And pointing out that we're less than 4 months old is not an excuse, but it's important to remember that. Ranking high on Google takes time, unfortunately. We're doing damn good, but we can't make CEO 10 years old. As pointed out by the Dragon, we don't even pay people to write content yet. 4 months really is young for a forum. That's just the way it is. And we've done a lot in those 4 months as a community, including run off the tyrant, so things are good right now.

As already stated, the admin here are both landing in new counties at the moment, so freely admit we haven't had the time to dedicate here as we'd like, but that's soon changing. Looks like I'll have about 16 hours in the classroom a week, so plenty of time to get more involved here again.

Also, it's taken a lot of hard work behind the scenes to get to where we are now, so I think we both needed a little breather too, which I feel is well deserved. :beer2:

Starting a forum from scratch and scaring off our main competition in such a short time ain't no easy task. It was a lot more work than just throwing up a site and sitting around with our thumbs up our asses waiting for people to sign up and post. As you said, anyone can make a website these days, but it was a lot more on me and the Dragon's end than just that.

If you do, then I'm sure your suggestions would also be appreciated by 'the management'.

What sort of content would you like to see included Stroppy?
Fair question.
  • I'd like to hear some bios and interviews of the long term expats, there are some great stories going to waste out there, and not all of them are about whoring.
    I'd like some sensible discussion on religious issues in the Kingdom without it disintegrating into moronic name calling.
    I'd like more photos of giblet's poultry, and gardening in general, because believe it or not some of us like that sort of stuff.
More to the point, though...
  • I don't want to hear "that's boring, I don't want to read it", or
    "The guys over at 440 currently have bigger dicks than you, you should do something about it", or
    "I don't agree with/like what you said, so you're a/an [Islamophobe | sexpat | NGO worker | pedophile | insert your favourite putdown], or
    "I'm not being entertained, so I'm going to leave soon"
Yeah, a lot of us make flippant comments or post content that not everyone is going to appreciate. But we're not in kindergarten here, surely if there's a post or a thread we don't like, we can just simply not read it. This notion that everything on CEO has to be exactly to my liking or I'm leaving is, frankly, childish. IMO.

After 15 years in Asia, growing up in this part of the world. I've got some stories.

I will write it out one day and give it to the dragon to upload.

Well, I have just back read this thread and I agree there has been a down turn in post rates but this is to be expected. What is more concerning is the fact it is not bouncing back.

Why is this the case, well imho many reasons, for one reason we need to think about how many new members say 'I was a member of the K4*0 but I never posted there' I feel this is due to the venomous retorts by some 'Long Standing' posters there, who seem to feel time in Cambodia makes them a world, unquestionable authority on every possible subject area.

If you want new and interesting threads on here, maybe we should look to the effects of the past and when we disagree with someone's point of view, which is totally acceptable, we should word it in the same way we would if Face to Face and not

'Oh! I can't believe you, you moronic tw** Fu***l, what kind of brain dead wan**r would suggest such a think. I have never heard such c**p in all my 78 years in PP'

Now this is not as pronounced here, yet but you can see the shoots of discord beginning to emerge.

We will see more organic growth, when we allow fledgling shoots to emerge, with out trying to stamp on them, in a vain attempt to make our erection 0.001" bigger !

If your only possible retort is to criticise, condemn and belittle, then maybe you should consider repatriation with the 'Other Forum'

As a result, if we don't grow at an fantastic rate, so be it but we shall grow and that growth will be new and sustainable.

As other have already said, this is a forum not driven by an elite but by its members, we have gone though our forming and storming, it is not time to progress things through norming and on to performing stage, we all look forward to.

You older, more seasoned members can help this process by identifying, and challenging these 5th columnists, who have buried deep in our midst, hell bent on destruction and discord on behalf of an ideology of past forums.

With these and other tactics, we will see the organic growth we seek, imho
