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.

Someone else wisely suggested that two weeks ago.

Subliminal thanks Giblet. The Thai boards just recently started clamping down, I thought.

Great minds think ...

Livers would probably be more useful, but we could do a 2-for-1 to make up for the bad buzz in Thailand right now.

How about an Inside Front Page type of thing for people who like to pen articles, trip reports, travel tales etc?
Sorry, my fucking karma just ran over your dogma.

Not a New Section idea, but I can't see anywhere else to post this. But why haven't you set up User Friendly Url's? There's a simple mod available for Phpbb and since k440 don't already use it, it'll give you an extra boost.

Two reasons, one the mod is made for linux servers and mine is a windows server (linux fanboys: it's what i had, because most of my work is in .net. i prefer php to run on linux as well... but i work with what i have). Doing it in windows is still possible but a much larger pain in the ass. Two, it actually conflicts with some other mods we have in place.

It's not exceptionally critical for seo, as google now has a setup in the webmaster tools where i can (and have) define the url parameters for things like f= and t=, which means the main problem friendly urls fixed vanishes without it.

so it becomes a lot of work for little reward and undoing another feature (i can't actually remember which one now though, so it would also mean finding that out).

Thailand section added, and relevant posts moved that way. If you think I missed any please let me know.
