Nice to see how we line up... OUR STATS!!!!

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.

Good to see how CEO is faring! Good job.

Regarding Hotdigr's comment, while it is legitimate for analytics to compare CEO with other sites, I thought it was clearly said that resentment against K440 and its owner would be confined to existing K440 rant threads.
I'm on both sites and I don't hide it, though I'm arguably more active on 440 at the moment. I would really like for grievance to not spill over into non-440-rant related threads. Thanks.

Yeah this wasn't really means as a grievance thread, only a this is how we look next to a site that's been here for a decade... which happens to be them. As I said, I'd love to see how we rank up next to the others like ThaiVisa and CPN... but those stats aren't available.

I'd really like it if this site stood next to it's original intention of being anti-censorship. I could care less what gets posted to what thread; it's this principle that matters and why I believe at least quite a few are here.

There was one comment made about the Draconian Sith Lord in this thread, please get over it and move on.

This. I'm a believer in freedom of speech as long as it's not stomping on anyone else's rights. The 440 flaming is not harming anyone, so let it burn itself out. If you're looking for a forum that only posts or discusses what you like, all the time, you're going to be horribly disappointed. Personally I'm well past flaming 440 but I accept that others are still angry. For those who actively post on both sites, learn to balance that for yourself rather than trying to shape the contribution of others. My 20r worth, take it as you find it.

Actually, looking at the CPN homepage they give "some" stats. Looks to be about 800 posts to their yahoo group per month.
We've had 8426 in one month... I feel ok about that... lol.

I'm pointing out a blatant double standard that was discussed in another thread.

While people said they are free to rant because freedom of expression, I replied that I'm free to rant about being annoyed by those rants because freedom of expression.

To which I was told that it was limited to the ranting threads and that if I didn't like it, I just have to stay away from them and not read them. And that's fine, I stayed away. But when the animosity seeps through to other threads, and I point it out, I'm being told to get over it.

If you're gonna uphold freedom of expression and transparency, you're gonna have to uphold it for everyone.

And I'll be out now. Sorry for contributing in derailing this thread a bit, OD.

There is a lot of enthusiasm from "founding" members. Regarding posts count, your true test will be the year-on-year increase, OD ;)

Very true. But I'll say that in this generation of FB/etc where forums in general are sort of becoming a lost art... it's nice to see it grow so much so fast.

As it is, we have nearly exclusively previous/current 440 people here, and it's one of the largest and longest forums for this country. It's going to come up in conversation... just as CPN,ThaiVisa, LIC, etc come up in conversation there... usually in a slagging tone. Though I seriously doubt you'd chastise the users there for remarking on them, or even talking shit on them... I know in the past I've never seen such chastization. And... people are free to talk shit on those two here as well (from what I've seen, there's plenty of shit to be talked about both from time to time). Just now there's one more, and more relevant to the member base, that's going to come up for a while. We're working on getting people NOT from 440 on here as well, to thin this out and help to decrease the instance of it... but SOME is likely inevitable. We do try and curb it, and keep it there, but sometimes a statement is relevant to the topic at hand (by the posters perspective) and so we let it slide. Worse is when such comment gets so much attention that it becomes an entire completely unrelated page of the topic.

There's a lot to be enthusiastic about! Even the point that we can disagree, yet share the same space quite happily...

While I completely see your point, this thread really had nothing to do with K440 in particular.

Personally, the fact that we're using them as a "benchmark" is nothing short of a direct compliment to them. Seriously.

They have done a great job over the past 11 years, so it's the biggest site to compare it to.

This definitely wasn't started to insult them in any way, and i thought it was clear that OD pointed out they're obviously ahead in numbers.

Anyways, he only posted it to show people our numbers who might be interested.

Point taken, but I definitely don't see this as a double standard.

Hope you understand.
