Nanaplaza.Com Message board FAQ

 

If you are new to this message board attached to the Nanaplaza.Com website, you should probably browse the public areas of the website first. If your main interest is the nightlife, we would also like to suggest you buy a membership. This will not only answer a lot of your questions, it will also contribute to the maintenance of both this message board and the site.

 

Before posting questions to the message board, it is also recommended to browse through the old discussions or use the search option (see below) to see if your question has already been answered before.

 

If you are new to UBBT (the software used to run this board), you might want to read the UBBThreads User Manual before proceeding.

 

Topics

 

This board deals with 'Sanuk' (or fun) in Thailand, but this is not really strictly enforced. Basically any subject dealing with Thailand is fine, with a few exceptions.

 

Some of the topics that are NOT allowed on this board (and will result in instant deletion of the thread and possible banning of the poster) are:

 

- child prostitution; if you are into little kids I would recommend euthanasia

- disrespect towards HM the King; I have the utmost respect for His Majesty the King and will not allow any disrespect towards Him or other members of the Royal Family

- drugs; doing drugs is stupid, and in Thailand it could also get you into big trouble with the law (see below)

- politics; we are guests in this country and as such I wish to prevent any comments that may be taken the wrong way

- racism; racists are NOT welcome here, and derogatory remarks on someones race, sexual preferences, etc. will result in you getting banned.

- advertising; if you want to advertise, contact us at sanuk@nanaplaza.com to sponsor a forum

 

On a related note to advertising, it is not allowed to post URLs to your own website, unless it is in answer to a specific question. Posting URLs in message signatures is also prohibited.

 

Finally, this is a Sanuk board that primarily deals with the 'fun' side of things Thai. All measures will be taken to ensure it remains so. If you have political, religious, or other 'issues' of a controversial nature that you need to preach about, there are more 'serious' boards out there that can accommodate you and your message. Our goal here is to keep things light and fun.

 

Drugs

 

Drug use in Thailand, by both Thais and Foreigners, is a serious issue. As such, it is important to make crystal clear, what is, and is not, acceptable on this board. Discussions related to over the counter medications are allowed. Threads endorsing illicit drug use, where to buy, how to use, and the enjoyment of use, are banned, and will be deleted.

 

We will allow discussions that caution other posters as to the destructive effects of drugs as they relate to Thai society, and sanuk travel. If, however, these discussions degenerate into the above banned subjects, the thread will be locked and deleted.

 

Privacy

 

Posting information which could lead to the identification of individuals is forbidden.

This rule extends to girls in the scene as well. So, no names, numbers, or identifying marks of the girls are to be disclosed here. Associating a particular girl with a particular bar is also restricted. There are a number of reasons for this, and this rule will be very strictly enforced, so do remember this when composing your posts.

 

With this in mind, please don't ask for, or give, recommendations about bargirls or massage parlour girls.

 

On a related note, people are considered to be innocent until proven guilty. The word of one poster is not, and never should be, enough to start a witchhunt. This board will NOT be used to seek revenge.

 

If you feel wronged or victimized, take it up with the police.

 

Flaming

 

Flaming is NOT tolerated! It is an absolute certain way of getting banned from the board.

 

Definition of flaming; An abusive or personally insulting message. This includes insulting or inflaming remarks concerning the character, or personality, of another poster. It also includes innuendos, snide remarks, and any overtly negative connotations towards a fellow board member.

 

You can disagree with a posters message, but an attack on the poster him/herself will result in a deleted post and/or banishment from the board, depending on severity of offense.

 

There are very likely posters on this board with different beliefs than your own. Please respect those beliefs, even if you don't agree with them.

 

Trolls

 

Trolls will NOT be tolerated.

 

Definition of a troll; A troll is someone who starts a thread, or makes a post, in the hope that it will incite an explosive response from its readers. Often a troll will post untrue information to accomplish his/her goal of disrupting the board.

 

Moderator decisions

 

Any board moderator's decision is final. It is not to be questioned. If you have issues concerning validity of a moderator's actions, then feel free to PM the moderator with your concerns. Failure to immediately comply with any moderator's request could result in your termination from this board.

 

A moderator may be easily contacted by clicking on the far-right 'Notify Moderator' icon that exists at the bottom of every post's Post Extras section.

 

In the event you do not receive adequite resolution to your complaint, through the forum's moderator's, you are then, as a final resort, free to contact the board owner, at sanuk@nanaplaza.com .

 

Attachments

 

For security reasons, as well as to conserve bandwidth, attachments are not allowed.

 

Categories

 

In order to try to keep some kind of structure to the board, several categories were set up. Please post in the appropriate category.

 

The different forums are moderated by one or two moderators. These moderators have often written forum specific FAQs, or Readmes, which can be found at the top of the threadslisting for said forum. These Readmes will also be used to mention any current information / changes.

 

Language

 

The language on this board is English and posts in other languages are not allowed. The reasons for this are that we are sharing information, and people could easily be left out because they can't understand the language it is written in. Furthermore, moderating something you can't understand is impossible, so we err on the safe side and delete the post.

 

There is one exception to this rule and that is Thai. Posting in Thai is allowed as long as the post is small (preferably only a few sentences at most) and a translation of the text is given in English.

 

Search option

 

Since this board has been around for a while already lots of questions have already been answered. So, in order to keep the amount of posts down, as well as keeping posters from having to repeat themselves, it is recommended that you do a search first, before posting your question.

 

The search feature can be accessed by clicking the link 'Search' at the top right of every screen.

 

Payment

 

The board is completely free, it is 'paid' for by the Nanaplaza.Com website, as well as by our sponsors. Signing up to the website, even though not required to participate in the board, would be greatly appreciated, and will help assure that this board can stay free.

 

And, of course, we would like to encourage you to check out our sponsors. They might very well have something to offer you.

 

Copyright

 

Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, we will assume that we can use any information and stories from the board on the website. You remain the owner of all content you create but you grant to us a license to use it in other forms, without compensation, unless you tell us differently.

 

Conclusion

 

Please don't be overwhelmed by the 'rules' of this board, see it as a pub, behave yourself, act politely and you will make friends, act like an asshole and the bouncer will throw you out.
