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.

I seriously think that journalistic interviews, written up as magazine pieces, on the old hands would be gold. Others would do it better, but I'd love to interview some of the old dogs over a few hours and write a bio piece on them.

Could be interesting. Depends on who is writing.

Did you read this one.

I have now. Good article, but could be fleshed out more - obviously the word count was a factor.

I repeat my call for a system to select which posters can see your posts and which posters can't. The foe option only blocks me from seeing what certain people write, with messages appearing saying "a post by so and so was hidden from your view by your request". I would rather a two way blocking. They can't see what I wrote and I can't see what they wrote. That is a true ignore function.

...and get rid of some of the clutter above the threads so there are more showing at any one time without having to scroll down. Wax the "ranks, what they mean." and some of the stickies.

I'm a member of a forum that has a "First New Post" button at the top of the thread. Saves you from scrolling through. It also places a note at the top of the 1st new post;

---NEW---

blah, blah, blah

Would it be possible to add this feature??
