BACK TO THE BASICS : A WEBSITE FOR EXPATS, BY EXPATS

Hi,

Expat.com defines itself as "The living abroad website, by expats, for expats"

We received too many complains these last days about locals systematically hijacking treads, posting ads (when they should be posted in dedicated sections), advertisement, and many, many active users became very frustrated.

We decided to temporarily block writing access to locals on the forums and are doing our best to find the best solution for everyone.

We may opt for an invitation system... (or something else)

Kind regards,

Julien

website free of scammers would be nice !

Julien,

That is indeed good news, we will see if the membership approves and improves the posts.

That would be great,

Can I suggest (if possible) that we can select people who we do not want to see posts from.

The house and land forum is the worst one, locals constantly over inflating prices, saying that they have land to sell when they are just an agent.

We had this on the Vietnam forum, the problem getting worse by the day so we had a crackdown and cleared out all the spammers.
We put a lot of effort into that one and we were successful so we hardly have any spammers any more.

Hi Julien,
Not sure if you are up and running again. I'm planning to retire in Cebu City next year, and would like to get some ideas on what to do and what not to do.

regards

Mark

Can only ask if you come across a suspicious post or advert you report it pej1111
