Thaiga - I noticed this line in your reply 26 of this thread :-

''A big shout and a merry one to roger for producing 1,557 posts since 2012, most of good content.'' Thank you for that - praise indeed !  :spin

1557 seems a lot of posts and I do remember some lively discussions !  :evilgrin

I saw a weather report for my new location (Chantaburi/Laem Sing) at the bottom of the homepage - technology eh ? Impressive.

Happy New Year to you and all here.

Morning Thaiga - yes I sold the Korat Resort house at a good price but it took 2 years or more - used 'Century 21' - Ron the Boss speaks English. If you keep the pressure on, he does a good job. Found an excellent buyer who spent a bit on the place, fell out with the Gal and put it up for sale again ! Now where have I heard that before ?
The house and garden used to keep me busy and I do miss that.

Chantaburi / Laem Sing is a super place but I miss Korat and Friends.

Sorry the Forum is quiet atm - you certainly put the effort in ! It'll pick up I'm sure.

BTW the range of moticons here is 'wicked' - in more than one way ! 

Love these  :cussing and  :punch

Take care, Roger       :cheers

Did put the effort in roger, but not no more, i get more appreciation from my charity work, which i will give more time to. but there is enough content to look at and sometimes people need time to read so i'm told.

be lucky Thaiga  :cheers

Hi Thaiga,
I just wonder what your thoughts are: There always seems to be loads of farangs in the Mall and T21 but this does not seem to translate into activity on here.  Maybe they are not interested in forums or have never heard of koratfart?  Should we send Nan out in her best frock to leaflet the farangs in the Mall and T21?

Korat forum wars

Hey Ian you mentioning the mall, you'd ave laughed years ago when the korat forum wars was on,  fighting for the top place. There was a member on the old koratfarang name Typhoon, arranged a sort of get together at the mall, where they could get a t-shirt to wear with the name of the forum on, so the farang guys would know who was who when in korat. 

The insults on Koratfarang were really bad even threatening each other, once a couple of members arranged to meet in the makro car park to sort their differences out, but ended up having a beer together, as being face to face is a different ball game. if you was not in the click of friends you got insulted, the admin could not or maybe could not be bothered to control the forum.

even j/f i think got banned, then i believe opened this forum, he could tell you more on that

I was one of the mods from the beginning. two months into the forum's existence I deleted an extremely bad insulting post, for what I was heavily criticised by the admin. In hindsight I think the admin had made that post himself, using an alias. But I was banned mainly for telling the admin again and again, that he'll cause damage to the community by allowing the bullying and attacking. I felt responsible, as it was me who suggested in a discussion about a Korat Expats Club on t/v to open an own forum for the farangs in Korat. KF's admin himself seemed to enjoy the bullying, took it as harmless game. Later he even joined this forum, but here his actions as admin on his own forum were discussed, he was asked to defend his decisions of banning the victims instead of the attackers, so he deleted his own account and showed up again only shortly under an alias, playing troll until he got exposed.

I think it's of no use repeating over and over, what went wrong at Korat's first farang forum. Good intentions by many of the initial members were there, but it became too much of a battlefield without guidance or restrictions. I guess the damage can't be redone anymore. Just let those who're still undamaged by what was going on there get on with their lives. It's a bit like WW II. Everybody knows what sh*t went on, but it can't be redone. It was a system and many were just dragged along, were mislead or had no better choice than running with the crowd.

I Joined koratfrang in its dying days and remember Typhoon and some of his posts, it was unfortunate as there was a lot of good info on that site that once you got through the bs stuff, then I found this site and joined latter on the "other" korat-farang site too.
Invaluable info I have gained from these forums in regards to life and living in Thailand, without these I would be very much in the dark and only relying on what Mrs KC would know about farang's.........

Thanks j/f, well i thought i new it all but obviously not, so that's why you got banned for trying to keep the peace.

Hey K.C. i think many would all be in the same boat (without these forums we would be very much in the dark and only relying on what the Mrs. tells us)
here's an old thread you might of missed (2009) and a few names you might remember.  R.I.P. those who are no longer here.

Future of KoratFarang, GrumpyExpat, and KoratFart?

I thank you for the reply mr. jf, what other forum would the admin reply to your post, only here at the number one spot KORATFART.COM might not be the biggest forum but certainly the best advert free forum around.

The link / Future of KoratFarang, GrumpyExpat, and KoratFart? / why are expats so bothered about survival of another expats venture, are they jealous of the success of others. a guy opens a bar the first words are, oh he won't last long,don't like the colour of the decor,does he go to stare at the walls,might do.

all i can say is they are not happy here,always having a moan :salute
