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 don't know if this is an option or technically workable but I remember in the earlier days of the internet, we used to have chat rooms. Everyone logged into the same room at the same time delivering one liners. Could / should this be a bolt on to allow a place for the free flow of drivel, thus keeping the forums more on topic and less cluttered. Sometime we need discussion about specific things but other times it is nice just to spend an hour or two bashing the keys, with a beer.

An "about CEO" section could be useful.
If we have specific question or suggestion.

They were shut down by Manila vice squads, Ed.

You should NOT ask for a private show from OD or Cambod. The first is too expensive, the second you'll need a wide-angle lens for your webcam.

lol, I just remember the flow of banter can be better on some occasions. I also think the spirit of this forum and its top self lot, would not feel threatened by such free flowing and open speech

chat is an available mod... but it's then lost. we prefer people chat in threads.

i like... and am working on this idea. i feel it should also come with a well made "about us" actual page (similar to the FAQ page) that can then be linked to/etc.

A rural lifestlye, home and garden type section would be good. Stuff like gardening, building projects, boating, farming, livestock, pets etc. Information on sourcing seeds, timber, tools and so on. Posters could also post any projects they work on that fit within that kind of thing.

To often for me I find it difficult to relate to a lot of the urban stuff you guys are interested in, and threads on these kind of topics tend to end up getting buried under pizza and politics.
There are no letters in the mailbox, there are no grapes upon the vine, there are no chocolates in the boxes anymore and there are no diamonds in the mine.

I would love a section like this. There's an agricultural group on Facebook in Siem Reap and it's full of interesting information.

You can start the section by moving my ducks and geese thread there. :D

One thing I will say though is that there are people that don't check all new active topics, they only check specific sections/subforums. So if there are too many subforums, some people aren't going to see much. (But I still want this one.)

^--- yep. it comes down to if they check the forums they're used to, or just the "new posts" list. i think we'll go ahead and kick in the ag forum.
