How to make CEO a really friendly forum?

Post by Samouth » Sun May 24, 2015 10:48 pm

I have been on CEO quite awhile and really enjoy being apart of it. Apart from improving my English, i have learned about what i was clueless before. I have never felt of being discriminated or attacked as a local, but received a lot of appreciation from my takes and contributions. I am thinking what can i ( as well as you all) do more as a member to help make it a really friendly forum for everyone? I will talk to my friends to join and you guys will have more inputs from local beside just me and little salary.
បើសិនធ្វើចេះ ចេះឲ្យគេកោត បើសិនធ្វើឆោត ឆោតឲ្យគេអាណិត។

If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.

Hell yeah, that will be awesome!

You better prepare them for the harmless banter, LoL, because it's not easy getting used to everyone teasing everyone. It's all lighthearted, but I know most people are too easily offended at times.

In general I think most CEO members are welcoming and helpful. It's pretty rare we have to edit posts and stuff, and 99% of the time it's people from the old forum that forget we have a different way of doing things over here, LoL.

:good:

Right, this is important. I will have to prepare them first. However, i think they will not have much problem with the language since most of us have TEFL degree. :)

I agree samouth, I would love to see a few more Cambodians posting here. Do you have any friends called Jessie ?

I would also love to see more Cambodian posters as well. I think there's a large gap between Westerners and Cambodians when it comes to actual discussions, so it would be very nice and refreshing to see a place where both can "meet" and chat.

I support your idea, Samouth! I enjoy being in CEO . I like to read debating because people give reasons when they dont agree with any idea. And many things lern from here, technogy and my country too. I have few foreigners friends but I didn't know what did expats think about us, but here gives me the clue. Btw i think many female members here but I know only 3 include me who post here. You guys have louder voice than women.sometimes I feel strange and wonder why not many women comment or post here? Am I a boy? :please: :please:

Perhaps CEO should have a '' Personals '' column . I'm sure hundreds , if not thousands of Cambodian girls will join just to find a rich barang who will marry them and rush them to a overseas country and live happily ever after.

i guess you didn't meet your wife in a forum, otherwise you wouldn't live in Cambodia. You might have brought her to your home country and perhaps are living happily over there. :lol: :lol:
