New Articles section...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

New Articles section...

Postby OrangeDragon » Thu Jun 05, 2014 2:41 pm

If you have a look at the top you'll see a new link for Articles. These aren't the paid type of professional publications, it's just a place where people can (if so inclined) post something they think deserves more than a thread in a forum that will eventually be buried. Something more static/etc. They can also be commented on, comments are simply tied in with your user accounts on the forums.

Anyone wishing to submit an article for posting, feel free to PM it to either of we in the Admin group, and once it's approved we'll gladly open your permissions to post it to that section. It uses the same posting/formatting/bbcode/etc that any other post on the forum does, so no special rules in that regard. Please make sure it's more robust than a simple 1 or 2 line topic post, this should be reserved for things like Vlad's How to Rent article, lexus' Buffalo Sister Roast review, etc.

Thanks!

Needs some editing but I think it's worthy
The cedar roasted asparagus has good chew. I don't know how to enjoy it, so I'll Instagram it instead.

I was thinking it would be good to get an article from a ladies perspective to draw in more ladies to the forum. And then had the thought that with a quick edit, maybe the discussion on personal safety would be a good article. Perhaps Sock puppet wouldn't mind as she had such great tips! Just a thought...

I PM'ed him; I see him like once a week so I'll harass him about it.

oh thanks, but I am not a writer and not even a native speaker. Only after I posted my tips I read the articles on the movetocambodia site which covered what I said and had a lot of other very good tips.
The article on the ladies safety would definitely be great!
