Thoughts re dodgy posts

Posted by somtam2000 on 18/12/2012 at 01:39

Hey all, Just canvassing for opinions on posts that are thought likely to be fake. Generally I just delete them if I get them fast enough, but if a conversation follows before I see it (like the Sorya mall Phnom Penh thing which is almost certainly a fake) I'm a bit more cautious of deleting it. Just to be clear I'm not talking about advertorial/shilling which I just delete immediately regardless of commentary. Basically I have three options - leave it, lock it, or delete it. Thoughts? ...

Site deleted

Posted by somtam2000 on 24/9/2012 at 20:20

Hi all, SO this morning I managed to delete the entire website. Not a good morning. The blogs are still gone (working on that) but it would be a great help if you could post any URLs that are broken if you happen to find any. Just pop the URL in this thread. Thanks a lot Stuart ...

goodbye

Posted by eastwest on 28/8/2012 at 08:29

So this is it. My last post and start of a self imposed exile. Coincidence has it that this will be my 700th post. I haven't posted for a while now after a few years of contributing. The reason? I don't agree anymore with many things here. - In my opinion travelfish started of well (at least since I "discovered" it) but for me it has lost its relevance. The listings in several sections haven't been updated for years (3 and counting for some areas). This I find unacceptable for a trav ...

Changes with the Travelfish blogs

Posted by somtam2000 on 9/6/2012 at 02:15

Just a quick announcement to let everyone know I've just finished a reorganisation of the blogs from what was destination specific blogs to countrywide -- we've also shutdown the islands blog and transferred the posts to whichever country they belong to. The new blogs are: Cambodia http://www.travelfish.org/blogs/cambodia/ Indonesia http://www.travelfish.org/blogs/indonesia/ Malaysia http://www.travelfish.org/blogs/kualalumpur/ Singapore http://www.travelfish.org/blogs/singapore/ Thailand http: ...

All Nepal traffic blocked

Posted by somtam2000 on 4/6/2012 at 09:12

As regular readers may have noticed, there are a few cretins in Nepal that seem intent on letting Travelfish readers know about their Nepal tour offerings over and over and over and over again. As a response, as with China, we've blocked all traffic from Nepal. Apologies for any inconvenience. ...

Updates?

Posted by shutupbecky on 24/5/2012 at 09:16

When I first visited Travelfish, I was pretty excited. It was like discovering a treasure trove of information. However, that initial excitement is gone because I've noticed that much of the information is very old. That's not to say that the information isn't useful -it's better than nothing- but it makes me question how reliable the information is. What's happening (or not happening) to this website? ...

Busy times?

Posted by tezza on 15/5/2012 at 01:44

I returned from a March/April trip to Thailand and wrote at least half a dozen LOCATION and ACCOMMODATION reports/reviews. To date only one has been published. Having just returned again from different Thailand places I'm wondering whether it is worthwhile spending the time on more reports/reviews? ...

No For Sale Section?

Posted by jammac on 7/5/2012 at 13:39

Hi all, this has probably been talked about before, either that or I'm blind, and I did search for this before posting. So no for sale section? I have a load of stuff from my travels that someone else could benefit from now I'm done with mine Thanks, James ...

A note on manners

Posted by somtam2000 on 11/3/2012 at 07:13

Hey all, I've been distracted to say the least with some non-Travelfish stuff going on for the last month or so, and as a result some threads have got a bit, well impolite. I have mentioned this in the past, but I'll just mention it again for those who missed my earlier notes on this matter: a) If you feel a question is stupid, or the person asking hasn't searched for an answer that is already here somewhere, please ignore the question. You're under no obligation to answer anything on TF. b) ...

The Site Generally

Posted by lifemagic on 7/2/2012 at 07:54

Not sure if this is the right thread to talk about the site generally. I'm grateful for it, the info, pics, occasional maps, user reviews, and it's all free of course. I travel around a lot and like to take part, so leave reviews.I'm careful to let you know of good experiences as well as bad, and when negative, I stick to the facts. But my reviews, recently, don't show up. I'm just back from Surat Thani. I went and looked at most of the places there. The guide (on this site) is really outdated ...

Any additional insight on Thai-Cambodian border crossings?

Posted by damil1234 on 2/12/2011 at 23:39

Hello, My boyfriend and I would like to cross over into Cambodia from Thailand's Surin province. I've listed our loose itinerary along w/ plenty of questions below - can anyone lend their insight? Starting on/about Dec 10: From Chiang Mai , take train to Ayutthaya (if it's not flooded); if it's flooded, take train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. From Ayutthaya (or Bangkok), head east to Surin province (bus? train?) to cross down to the Cambodian border. - Bus or train from Ayutthaya or Ba ...

Travelfish guides for Kindle and other ebook readers

Posted by kibatonic on 31/12/2010 at 01:13

Hi Travelfish people, first of all, thank you for this great website!! I'm planning to travel to South East Asia for 6 weeks from beginning of March on and instead as I did the few times before when I had a chance go on holiday, I'm not going to carry 2kg+ in printed books with me, but instead will use my 6" Kindle 3. And now I found your Free Guides feature... OMG, what a great idea! That's the perfect addition to my Kindle, just create books for all the destinations I'm planning to see, ...

New server: problems here please

Posted by somtam2000 on 3/11/2011 at 07:54

Hiya, Many apologies for the downtime today - things well, didn't go quite as planned. If you come across any problems in the coming days - doesn't matter how minor, please post here and I'll look into it. With this new server we should dodge the frequent down times we have been experiencing and it should generally be a good deal faster. Wait and see ...

Server issues

Posted by somtam2000 on 28/10/2011 at 23:45

As you may have noticed the Travelfish site has been a bit erratic over the last few days -- especially between about 5pm and 9pm GMT +8. We have no idea why this has been happening, but, as at wit's end have just ordered a new shiny server with a fresh stock of hamsters which we'll hopefully be able to migrate across to over the weekend. I realise this may be a bit inconvenient given everything that is happening in Bangkok, but we're worried the whole thing is just going to role over and die, ...

I've just realised that I haven't been receiving email notifications of replies on threads for the past 2 or 3 days ......... Has anyone else had this problem? I double checked my email address (altho it was working previously and I haven't changed it) and other emails are receiving fine. And, yes I do remember to check the box! ...

Travelfish newsletter

Posted by somtam2000 on 6/10/2007 at 16:12

You may have noticed the sign-up blurb on the top right of most pages for the Travelfish newsletter. Yes, that's right, we're bringing our newsletter -- the fondly named Burp! -- back to life. Travelfish old-hands probably recall the old newsletter, and the new Burp! will be a similar product. Travel news, gossip, special deals and lots more. What this means is if you're signed up via the Member Centre to receive the newsletter, you need to re-sign-up via the box up top. Sorry for the inco ...
