Communithai Magazine

Recommended Posts

Hi bchcomber,

Thanks for your words of encouragement. The idea behind the CommuniThai project

and its magazine is to build community. From some of the posts here and the responses

I feel this can be a real challenge - moreso than I thought. Some people are already

conscious of focusing on the good and supporting others with constructive yet

realistic criticisms. Others seem to be almost spiteful. I don't mind Chiang Rai Guy

posting on this thread: piggy-backing or not. I think the spirit of what he is doing will come out

in his future posts and actions. I choose to give him the benefit of the doubt for now. But my

reaction was the saame as yours, at first.

About the magazine helping out newbies in town, I think it will be a few more issues before

we have a real strong offer in this department - but it is our intention.

:D Very good response to Chiangrai Guy. Why couldn't the guy just start his own thread? :D Possibly because he wanted to get into the lime light of yours? :D (athetic) The fella! or maybe not?as his picture seems to steer more to the other side of the fence? Anyways-I am new to Chiang Rai and have been having a heck of a time finding things. I sure hope this Magazine will help people like me? I took the time to read the responses to your thread on the Magazine and it seems quite positive. Don't fret yourself over people taking pot shots at your work, it comes with the territory! Good luck with the Magazine, printers in Thailand are a NIGHTMARE 5 days can turn into 20 :o 19:15:35']

Let me be perfectly clear on this issue of starting a new thread. I had no intention of stealing anyone's "limelight", nor do I believe I did that. It wasn't posted to garner support or take it away from communithai. In fact, you probably won't hear anything about this new veture until I'm confident it will be available for all, in which case I will start an new thread if necessary, or not at all. Have fun boys.

I think very few of us, if any, would accuse you of 'stealing the lime-light'. On the contrary actually.

This is a tread about magazines in Chiang Rai.

I have a very strong feeling that your magazine will connect closely to an earlier discussion on this forum about the possibility to set up a magazine with relevant general information about Chiang Rai and Thai culture (and this not exclusively for expats or with the usual, commercially inspired approach towards tourists).

I am sure I speak for an overwhelming majority when I wish you succes with it! I am also sure that you can rely on the support of everybody who had the pleasure to meet you.

Limbo :o

PS. Mr. Bchcomber:

Your first postings as a newcomer to town give a strange impression.

You introduce yourself by attacking CRG, one of the most respected expats in town and this in an unjust manner by insinuating that he would be a person who would need to hide behind others.

May I assure you that this assessment is completely ridiculous.

The reason for your sudden engagement in this matter remains unclear.

That you don't know CRG is clear to me, but that you spontaneously 'embrace' the still unseen magazine of Mr. Thomas and Mr. Ozark makes me wondering if you possibly know them.

Please refrain from personal attacks on fellow members of this forum.

I think the founders of the Chiang Rai Magazine can be grateful for the hospitality granted to them by the Chiang Rai Forum of Thaivisa.com. It will be interesting to see if this forum, which is the greatest English language forum of Chiang Rai, will be mentioned in their magazine as well.

There is a tin line inbetween giving information and advertizing.

The magazine got the advantage of the doubt.

From now on however the promoting of the magazine has to be seen as advertizing.

The topic is now definitly closed.

Limbo.
