Chiang Rai Member Search Doesn't Turn Up Much.

If a member doesn't put his location in his profile it won't show up in a location search. It's up to the members to place the information there.

I understand that. I was just wondering why people don't and thought it might be nice to see who is in the Rai.

Maybe some don't know about how to do it, maybe others have more specific location in the profile, etc. Perhaps you have now started an initiative to get them going. :o

You could lead by example and add your location.. :o

For example your location > " villagefarang > From: Northern Thai Village" wouldn't show up on a search of Chiang Rai members. So other members with perhaps their local village within Chiang Rai wouldn't show up.

I actually did show up on the search as my profile does say Chiang Rai further down the page. Hopefully by adding Chiang Rai to my Norther Thai Village location it will make it easier.

I fully understand not giving out village name or address except in PM as who knows what evil lurks out there. I would, however, like to know how many of us are out there even though I can't yet envision actually meeting anyone. Just curious I guess.

I revisited my profile information and noticed two different location lines. I have notice some members have filled in the top line but not the bottom one and thus do not show up on a search of members in Chiang Rai.

I'm curious about this comment.

This is as good an example as any. In this environment how am I supposed to know how to take your remark.

You could be genuinely interested in an explanation. It could be purely rhetorical or you could have taken offense and made assumptions as to what I meant. The point being there is no way of being sure about anything in a place like this.

I have never been the type to buddy up to the bar owner or befriend some guy on a barstool. Over the last 20 years or so my best friendships, have for the most part, been established and nurtured on a squash court. It is extremely difficult to hide ones true nature in the heat of battle on a squash court.

I'm also a believer in the economics of relationships. Both sides have to gain or share something for a relationship to flourish. What that might be has little constraint but must be there not the less.

With newbies I found the relationship too one sided. They often need a reference source, a guide, a translator and perhaps a mentor to teach them the ropes. There are people, who may gain some sense of self-worth out of a relationship like that but I'm not really that guy.

I prefer to be around people who I find interesting, though that can be a difficult task at times. Entirely my fault for being too picky. I have lived a very fortunate life here in Thailand and credit it in some part to playing my cards close to my chest and having a healthy skepticism when dealing with others.

Thus my innocuous remark about not being sure that I want to temp the Peter Principle by meeting online entities. Some things work at one level but not the next.

Perhaps this is exactly why people who live in Chiangrai don't indicate it anywhere......have you accidentally stumbled onto the answer to your original inquiry?

Pretty much the same way I should take your's, I guess. You seem quite interested in who is around Chiang Rai and on TV, somewhat as a vouyer rather than a social participant .. it would seem .. after reading your latest post.

You could be genuinely interested in an explanation. It could be purely rhetorical or you could have taken offense and made assumptions as to what I meant. The point being there is no way of being sure about anything in a place like this.

Which is why I asked.

I am not a bar owner and seldom adorn a bar stool as I don't drink. Bad assumption on your part?

Over the last 20 years or so my best friendships, have for the most part, been established and nurtured on a squash court. It is extremely difficult to hide ones true nature in the heat of battle on a squash court.

Never played that game either. But I would suppose that squash courts are a bit rare out in the village.

I'll just let that one set there and simmer.

Sound's like you are valuing yourself pretty highly. FWIW, I'm relatively comfy with my fractured Thai and have driven 75 of the provinces in Thailand.

I prefer to be around people who I find interesting, though that can be a difficult task at times. Entirely my fault for being too picky. I have lived a very fortunate life here in Thailand and credit it in some part to playing my cards close to my chest and having a healthy skepticism when dealing with others.

So far this sounds pretty one-way.

Thus my innocuous remark about not being sure that I want to temp the Peter Principle by meeting online entities. Some things work at one level but not the next.

Fair enough, I suppose .. if you want to live your live that way. Up to you.

When I wrote my response to your post, I was genuinely interested in your motivation for phrasing your response in that manner .. not to get an invite for a cold brewski. Now I will ask a presumptuous question.

Did you want to find out who is around C'rai and on TV so you could snub them/us in a way so we would know we were being properly snubbed?
