One of the fastest growing websites dedicated solely to independent travel in Southeast Asia.

Actually I hope it's not the fastest growing, and prefer that content is kept down to question-answer based as much as possible on facts and direct experience, with opinion kept 2nd and heresay kept further down the list. Not used to "socialise" like Facebook or Thorn Tree.

Posted from within Vietnam.

I've become a travelfish nerd, reading forum posts that have absolutely no relevance to anything I am doing, automatically typing in the website when I open mozilla....

Not sure about the "fastest growing" tag -- we actually saw about a 30% drop in traffic courtesy of the chaos in Bangkok earlier this year (though that is starting to pick up again). Agree with both #2 and #3: we're hoping that the new site (which should be opening very soon) will better facilitate more Q&A, but also encourage more travelfish nerdydom :)

Cheers

Will the general layout of the site be changing, or are we just going to see minor tweaks? When are these changes going to happen?

It is a substantial redesign. The new site looks pretty much completely different to the existing one.

The site was supposed to launch end of July, but with the site attacks that have been going on this month, along with a three week trip to Sydney means it will be happening sometime in August - most likely towards the end of the month.
