In his majesties secret service
« on: July 27, 2009, 07:53:49 AM »
One of the chess boards in Korat has seen the introduction of three new pieces. Their firing lines and powers still need to be seen: bishops firing very far and diagonal using what they were told in the confessional, rooks also firing very far but straight with flame throwers or knights with the dignity to jump over insignificancies? But I bet they all do have passwords as uniform as their nicks, like "hoover-x", "hoover-y" and "hoover-z".

The second prize is if you can name two mods you get a pub at real real bargain basement price.

The third prize name one mod is a night out in a dark place with the donator, hacking the website of your choice with a huge amount of alcohol.

To win your prize all you have to is, within the next 72 hours, post the results on Koratfarang, with the heading i Like to spread sh-t around Korat. ;D ;D ;D

What's the fun in exposing who they are? They'll do themselves by the time by posting when not aware as whom they're logged in. ;D

And if you already know who is who you can just play a little with them. ;)

Frank, the state of the art game is "make them expose themselves without me having been offensivley curious". Best I remain undercover myself. ;)

I agree with Fartie. Most of us know who at least one of the Mods is but it's more fun to watch them at work and play without revealing our knowledge.

As for the deteriorating content, well that's just a reflection of what the contributing members want, is it not? Who are we to complain? Doggie posts might be boring to some but note also some of the underlying inappropriate attitudes to other people - anti America, British and European comments and nasty, unwarranted rants about ex-bar girls. There's no other forum like it for those who want that kind of atmosphere so I guess it's serving a niche market.

A big change happened around the time that a few people either left or stopped posting frequently. The reasons for all that have been discussed at length so there's no need to go over it again. However, like it or not, those livelier members did stimulate, provoke even, some discussion. Those who remain, as I said, have got the forum they want so good luck to them. Fine by me - there are other places to go.

Mr Franklyb,
My secret inside informer tells me the three mods are Bigbus, Dereklev and Dutch - but don't tell anyone. It's a secret.  :D  I also heard (but can't confirm) that they are under strict orders not to reveal their identities, so if they come on here and deny it, you have your evidence (according to fuzzy wuzzy logic v.2.1)! 

But please do not insist I take the prizes fantastic prizes on offer. I missed the deadline. Please donate them to a worthwhile charity instead.

I am aware one of the above mentioned is a news copy paste expert but I haven't heard of another fairly new website in Korat or of any translation skills. Is the new website linked to this one?

heres a cryptic clue, you live in the place, and if you go on a trip, that you do not know  were you are going you may need one, the translation part refers to someones language skills, yes it has a link here.

Sicho come a man of your intellect must have guessed which one by now, if not who was the news poster on KF and not the poster on whats happening at the mall. ;D ::)

heres another little part of the puzzle the same person says he is not friends with the admin of the board does not see him have anything to do with him, though indirectly set up the board, opened a real estate business with him, and defends the person on numerous websites, and hands over information regarding persons.

all these comments are Franklybs they have nothing to do with anyone else here or any other board, they are ,my observations and research, of a man who wants to drink with you, get to know you and is willing to sell his soul. :-[ ::) ???

Who is the secret poster on Grumpy?

I bought some X-Ray specs at Save One yesterday and now I can see there's a poster who posts - even this morning - with invisible ink and an invisible name. His/her posts don't even register in the stats. You won't be able to read these posts as they're impossible to read without X-Ray specs - and I bought the only pair available. Thankfully I don't need them to read posts on this forum.  :D

I'm sorry if it's all too secret to discuss. A secret chess game. Interesting.

Definitely is, if you're using your own content. as to copying/pasting we have that experience from the Bangkok Post all of a sudden not being happy with tv copying/pasting their news anymore. Of course it can be understood that the Bangkok Post doesn't want their competitors The Nation and Phuket Gazette use the articles they paid reporters to write. What effect will this have on smaller websites copying and pasting articles from the big news sites rather than writing their own?

And what is with the discussion of news events reported by another news site on forums? Since every news site is interactive itself that would not give you a right. In my opinion it is still permitted to relate to and quote news stories reproducing their essentials and giving a do-follow link to the original and full story as "fair use". But a website based primarily on copied articles on its front page is probably not covered by "fair use".

What i find astonishing about copy/paste news articles is most of the time they our from the BKK Post which i find at the best of times to be biased anyway, if the news comes from a international site, theres  more information and not one sided points discussed, theres also other sites in Thailand that post the same articles and can be seen in English most of the time.

I have no problem with websites that inform and enrich, the reader though if you go to a number of forums,Boards and its the same BS whats the point, postings are to gain interest in your site, and to possibly make the guest, member want to come back. i skip the news articles now.

Thats why i enjoy this site its not the same BS.

Sometimes it is necessary to copy and paste an article to alert to a certain point or start a discussion. But copying articles about the most common news topics that can be found just everywhere doesn't serve that purpose. Copying articles into already running threads to illustrate a certain point or give background information etc. is something else again.

Copying whole articles from the Bangkok Post instead of just giving links is usually motivated by them changing the urls after one day. So giving the link only will end up in the link broken after one day. And you cannot find that news story in their archive, unless you know the title or content.

Thaivisa was just going a bit too far, copying just about every article and so taking the readers away from the Bangkok Post. As to discussing news articles from the Bangkok Post on a forum one can do that on Bangkok Post's forum as well. I can fully understand Bangkok Post's position on news articles copied on the tv forum.

Usually forums are circles based on specific common interests and with more or less identifiable members . Thaivisa on the other hand by its size and commercial purpose is not a smaller circle with identifiable members. It's far too general.

Part of the issue might also be advertising revenue. TV is taking potential customers away from Bangkok Post advertisers.

Koratfart, you are right about the links. The Bangkok Post archives their stories fairly quickly. They can be retrieved later but I believe at a cost.

BTW, does the Bangkok Post really have reporters write articles?  :o

Sorry Frank, the judgment about stupidity I leave to the lawyers.  ;)

If I have to choose between Bangkok Post and The Nation, I rather give the award of government and especially military dependency to The Nation and therefore would look at the headlines of the Bangkok Post first. But RSS feeds enable me to see the "breaking news" of both at the same glance. If at all in case of conflict I read the article of the Bangkok Post.

The Nation does mention the letter sequences Isaan or Nakhon Ratchasima more often in articles and therefore keeps popping up in the Google news alerts to these words; that's why it is copied to local forums and other local sites more often than the Bangkok Post. Not because somebody actually had a look at its website and found an article relating to Korat: because Google found the query "Nakhon Ratchasima" in an article and send the copier/paster an email with the link. Ain't that convenient?  ;)

Thank you koratfart for your reply i note it is well informed and sure it is reliable, though i must point the Bkk post, as i am sure you are aware, are and have been very pro democrat,my short time residing in Thailand has made me wary of most things, and my suspicion about the Post.i would like to say the post has been and still is attacked in its forums by members,to be biased in its views regarding certain issues i have no direct evidence to say that they are directly connected  to the military, though i would say they are a wolf in sheeps clothing.

Are you expecting a letter from my lawyer? under which grounds would you like me to sue you ;D, you name i will do it, could do with a bit of extra money at the moment, the lawyer i have in mind specializes in Extortion and is very good friend of mine.

Koratfart may i propose you that you install a spell check as no doubt persons from other forums have attacked my grammar and spelling it would help me in any future court cases.
