New Forum in Korat
« on: April 27, 2011, 11:42:43 AM »
Some offers for koratfarang.com but none accepted. Question is, why buy it? Just start a new one! Like this,,,, korat-farang.com   ;D
More choice for the expat community.

Hope you don't mind the link, JohnnieF.

Link deactivated by admin on 7/19/2013 due to the criminal activity directed at this site by the owner of that linked site.

Interesting, Jazz! But you should have named that folder "board" instead of "forum", so moving from that "site on sale" to the new alternative were easier. So one just needed to insert a minus between Korat and farang rather than having to type the whole address again

Are there really 800 plus guests viewing this site at this moment? It seems an awful lot. Why don't some more of you join - there's safety in numbers!!

The number on the index page below "Users Online" always refers to the time frame set for that in the control panel. For this forum it is set to 24 hours. You can see from what it says there right now : "392 Guests, 9 Users Users active in past 1440 minutes". That means in the last 24 hours visitors from 401 different IP addresses (+ 51 spiders/search engines shown to me only) have visited this forum. The other forum for example has set this to 15 minutes. So there you can see how many different IPs have visited in the last 15 minutes. If it says there 10 for example that does not mean in the last hour 40 had visited, or that in the last 24 hours 960 had visited, because they could have been the same 10 only that did connect in the last 15 minutes. There is no further counting and differentiation. I prefer to know how many look up this forum in a day instead of 15 minutes only.

When you look up services like Alexa you can see how many visitors who have installed Alexa toolbar in their browser did connect to certain domains. That gives you a faint idea for comparison.

For the last month these comparative numbers of "Reach" are shown there for the Korat forums (in parenthesis difference to one month ago):

0.00072  (+40%) for korat-info.com (German forum, no Alexa toolbar in German available, actual value should be higher)

0.00076    (+5%) for koratfart.com

0.00065   (-20%) for koratfarang.com

0.00057  (+40%) for grumpyexpat.com

0.00039   (+30%) for isaan.com

0.00015   +600% for korat-farang.com (still new)

Now I hope DD doesn't rant about the restriction of the Alexa values again; I do know they're only good for webmasters and to give them only a faint idea about their site's performance in relation to other sites.

If you want precise and reliable figures all admins would need to run the same statistics software and openly reveal the results. Don't count on that!

That's very technical, but I get your point.

At the end of the day the other forum appears to be going downhill and does not seem to be thriving - which is not surprising when it seems impossible to join.

As someone pointed out somewhere recently, each of those forums has a different slant. You pick what suits you best. And, why contribute to only one forum? Do we talk only to the same people in the same place when we go out to socialise?

There's no point in someone complaining that there are few posts if he doesn't post himself. Forums are influenced by those who post so we all have a chance to make a difference. I accept, of course, that it's difficult to post on a forum if your application isn't approved!

Maybe just his legal adviser to whom he forwards all membership applications for a thorough check hasn't had the time to compare your emails with his dossiers, or he became suspicious upon not finding anything about you.

Or maybe he saw that I was posting on another forum and being (somewhat) negative about the brotherly forum?

Nah, I think that there is simply a lack of interest on the part of Admin of the brotherly forum. Shut the door to newcomers? Recipe for a slow decline!!

How can you say that? To me it more looks like the forum is lacking "interest" for him. He offered to sell it even. But nobody seemed to offer enough to him. You probably have to buy the whole forum. ;)

Unable to open the brotherly forum on the browser - have they decided to pull the plug or is this just a temporary glitch?

We got some new comparative figures now, all a bit lower and for three months average. Well, there was summer vacation in Europe and the US.

0.00046    -24% for korat-info.com

0.00048    -32% for koratfart.com

0.00033    -49% for koratfarang.com (lotsa fans seem to hope for a reopening, checking quite often)

0.00030    -40% for grumpyexpat.com

0.00024    -   ? for isaan.com

0.00007    -    ? for korat-farang.com (James Bond himself must be keeping that figure down.  ;D )

That's a lot of undying love for a forum closed! It doesn't fit to the stories told in Korat, JF! There are people asserting all or most of the old KF members had moved to the one with the minus in the middle.   ;)

Don't forget that's the figure for "Reach", the share of unique visitors surfing the internet. It's possible that now they all do read and post from just a few computers. Think of something like a collective, just sharing one or two computers in a clubhouse exclusively for reading and posting just on that forum. ;)

Get this on my screen since yesterday. Does it mean they have been hacked? Is it really dangerous to open that site now? What could happen to me or my PC? :o

No problem here! Try restarting your router to see whether it's IP-related. Some IT-Specialist might be playing games with you, intercepting and redirecting what comes from you.
