Fewer Posts on ThaiVisa These Days?

It's a long time since I've looked at the forum. Yes posts seem to be down, but the quality seems to be up, with a lot less of the right wing hysteria and anti Thai bigotry that infested the forum in the past.

really?

that's pretty much all i see.

I tried, once!
The adds overwhelmed me.
Try Tapatalk App in Playstore, there are ads but they aren't too obtrusive

Only my opinions - here goes:

 

Change of ownership lead to changed rules/priorities.

Lots of Ads - Delays for those with ad blockers

Enforcement of rules too strict

Removal of daily News Broadcast

Removal of weekly opinion pieces

Infusion of more 'anti-Thai' stories

Infusion of 'left-wing' stories (anyone see a positive story about Trump?)

Pandering to a minority of Users

Failure to remove trolls - some seem to be 'protected'

Lots of apparently deliberately provocative news stories

Very few positive news stories and items 

Enforcement of a narrow view of Thai and World events 

Discouragement of opposing views and opinions

Failure to gain new members

Failure to keep old members

Other forums far more lenient and easier to use

 

Just my opinion/s.

Sorry to inform you, but...

 

Bad news is usually what makes news, whether in Thailand or elsewhere.

 

A bus from Bangkok to Udon arriving safely with 40 passengers onboard doesn't make news. A bus from Udon to Bangkok that crashes enroute and kills everyone onboard makes news.  Sorry if that spoils your day.

 

Still, I do share some of your concerns.  But every time I start thinking that the current ThaiVisa isn't quite the same forum I knew years ago, I just start thinking and salivating over what the next Dan column will be... And suddenly, the world is a much brighter place!   :cheesy:

I haven't come across the Dan column yet, but I always look forward to Rooster's "The week that was in Thailand" (or something like that)

On the same theme forums who cull members with many thousands of posts as this one has done recently fail to see the time and effort invested by such posters into their forum.

 

When other posters see many such people disappear into the void they are less likely to have an affinity to post and so the forum loses its momentum.

 

As has happened here with gusto it would seem.

In many organizations the problem lies in that which cannot be discussed. 

Yes its a shame it can't be discussed

Do give it a rest about the moderation on here , all the other similar forums are full of posters who cannot speak without being abusive and(who cannot post here any longer)just spend all day calling each other names .

   Its the moderation here that keeps the people away who cannot speak without being abusive and threatening  that keeps this place going .

  *U said what , dats B******s , ill kin hit you* blah blah blah

the other issue is being personally attacked by total strangers. look at this response to my comment on a thread:

 

"Yea, course you did. If you had everything in the US, was happy and successful, loving family and friends, there's not a chance in hell you would have decided to emigrate to Thailand. Makes ZERO sense. Not sure who you're trying to kid fella."

 

Really? As if this person has any clue about me. Here he calls me a liar and a total failure.

To whom does the anonymity give the greater power?

 

If you ignore the majority of what goes on the internet its better for the blood pressure.
