Thanks for sharing some historical aspect of this community. You guys must be so close in real life. Probably had some gatherings, look like most have been here for a long time. Some long milestones of existence here!Long story. Many of us (and all of the moderators) used to be members of a different expat in Indonesia forum. The owner of that place wasn’t taking great care of the forum, so technical issues began to pile up. When people openly protested, they got banned en masse, so they started this forum. This site is populated by pretty much the same set of folks, minus the old owner.
I did finally read the community guide page, I like the one encouraging members to be friendly to newbies. I assume this is due to the old forum? Not many were friendly to newbies and exclusive? Just a guess....
