Khmer440 is shutting down

This is where our community discusses almost anything! While we're mainly a Cambodia expat discussion forum and talk about expat life here, we debate about almost everything. Even if you're a tourist passing through Southeast Asia and want to connect with expatriates living and working in Cambodia, this is the first section of our site that you should check out. Our members start their own discussions or post links to other blogs and/or news articles they find interesting and want to chat about. So join in the fun and start new topics, or feel free to comment on anything our community members have already started! We also have some Khmer members here as well, but English is the main language used on CEO. You're welcome to have a look around, and if you decide you want to participate, you can become a part our international expat community by signing up for a free account.

That's a mass of interesting threads going away, always sad to see data going extinct...
Should be available for as long as the server is running. How long will that be, I dunno. Ask Alexandra.

Apart from that, it will be forever archived in the internet Wayback Machine. >> https://archive.org/web/

I doubt that. Where they would get sued? In Cambodia? Forum like that shouldn't have nothing to do with Cambodia physically even though the topic is about Cambodia. I mean the site should be hosted on a server outside of Cambodia and so on.

It sounds like they're saying it will be totally shut down, but I would suggest to them that they just freeze it as is.

Can we, then, expect an inrush of people who previously openly despised this forum, as they will have nowhere except maybe the Kampot notice board to spill their vitriol? And of course Facebook.

I think Alexandra was referring to those who openly despised CEO when he said "forums attract a lot of people with mental illness".

I guess we can look forward to Jenny threads every week going forward.

The owner has a chronic disease, maybe that's the reason for closing it down.

Now now, we are a haphazard community where many of us have contrasting viewpoints/opinions, so all are welcome. (Ok, "most" are welcome, maybe not "all.")

Congrats to everyone here who has ever contributed on CEO, as this community isn't going anywhere, thanks to you all, and a special thanks to those who help (and who have helped in the past) with crucial things behind the scenes, like the news and moderating, as it's a team effort to keep an online community up and running for years and years.
Your welcome, and thank you for acknowledging my tireless efforts to ensure clean on this patch, and maintain a smooth-running operation.
It's nice to be appreciated, and thank you for the gift, in advance.

..and I'm here! Straight from khmer440. Distinguished veteran of several keyboard wars. Absolute tosser. I missed out on all the hatred though.

From Denmark. Been living in Cambodia for some 8 years or so. Mostly in PP, Kep, and Siem Reap. Now staying in PP.
