    I hope that since you've posted this that Ajarn Forum has been linked prominently on your site....

    Added after 2 minutes:

    Ok...I see you have....another Thailand site using the Fontok font. Glad I didn't use it now.

    Not much to check out - didn't take long!

    Rather like opening a bar with no girls!

    Check back regularly for updates. They will happen often.
    Let's hope so - long way to go to fulfill the description above!

    Send us material for the site. We need: Articles (one time, and recurring), Reviews, Your Experiences, etc.!
    What about? What's the angle? Why should I write articles there when I can happily post here or elsewhere?

    p.s. Not trying to be negative but it's late and I'm tired :smile:

    p.p.s Don't shout at me for flaming a newbie - it's just that I was so impressed with the grand opening announcement and now I feel kind of deflated :sad:
    Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....

    What's the betting that dick Ian Trimble is the 'mastermind' behind this wonderful site?

    Well, not wanting to slag off yet another wannabe Thailand lifestyle masterpiece, but now the front page consists of a Yahoo RSS feed, which suggests that he doesn't actually have much content of his own. I'd look at writing your own material before you start asking others to contribute theirs for your benefit. Set the example maybe.

    Aside from that the design is awful, most content links are just lists of links, so what the links link is for is quite beyond me. I see a fledgeling phpbb forum has suddenly sprung up too. As a newcomer in an already quite crowded market it needs an angle that isn't around already, and frankly I don't see it.

    Agreed. How would any of you like to moderate this place with the bunch of eccentric crazies we have. Plus you have to keep an eye on the young riff raff as well. LMDA is doing an admirable job. My hat is off to you.

    Jesus Gents, why have you got to knock the poor guy down?

    That was my exact thought after reading this thread. The guy needs a bit of support and all he gets is kick in the teeth.

    I may have started it! I didn't really mean to.

    I just saw a spectacular announcement with nothing behind it! The OP was asking for some substance for his site and I didn't really know what he wanted?

    Importantly the OP has not bothered to respond to this thread. Maybe he doesn't care what we think, or maybe he is busy writing something for his site (Or maybe he's been in the pub all weekend :chug: )

    A bit of Internet sleuthing reveals that the site is registered to one Jonathan Semenick of 1240 N. Broadway #102, Indianapolis, Indiana 46202, USA.

    The guy, with his partner, also runs a site http://www.cemenuk.org/ which is for a boarding school that allegedly cares for victims of child sex trafficking.

    And just to continue the sleuthing, Semenick has also written an ebook about Thai amulets, sells amulets on eBay, and runs an amulet-related site at
    www.phrasomdej.com.

    I don't know how to develop a site - I don't know how to help improve his site because he still hasn't been arsed to come on here and tell me what he would like me to write for him!

    He clearly isn't very interested in this site or its opinions and it appears was only using it for free advertising - which is fine by me!
