New Section Suggestions?

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.

^not so much a crazy idea. I always thought a live chatroom part of the forum would be an interesting idea. Something different, anyway. This allows for live conversation via scrolling text to take place between dozens of members simultaneously. I haven't seen one of these live chatrooms for ages. They could be quite fun back then. Then we could call each other awful, childish names in real time. :thumb:

Do interviews with long-term posters/ residents.

If you look at the top of the page you'll see we just added an article system while you were sleeping. ;-)

I think an IRC channel might be a cool experiment.

How about an OFF-ROAD MOTORBIKE section? This is the Kingdom of Off-roading in SE Asia. THE best in the area. Lots of us have them, and want to get more info on them, parts, rides, routes, etc...

Not sure what you're plans are for a front page but consumer reports would be cool. You could review different phone cos and ISPs and give an overview of different markets and supermarkets. Also comparing different motos and cars.

I think this would be much more useful to long term expats than the musings of multiple short-term residents/ long-term tourists.

Also interviews of old hands. The interviews on 440 had a lot of promise but fell flat.
Scarier than malaria.
