Phuket’s largest readership base brought to bear on expat forum

PHUKET: Phuket’s largest online community just got bigger this morning with its merger into the newly launched Phuket Forum Dot Net. Powered by the Gazette Online, Google’s top-ranked website for Phuket (Source: Google Analytics), the new forum draws from a current daily readership base greater than all other local news outlets combined.

All stories appearing in the Gazette Online appear also in the Phuket Forum, and all comments posted in the Phuket Forum appear automatically in the readers’ comments section of the Gazette Online.

The Phuket Forum is also powered by the Gazette’s longstanding partnership with Thailand’s leading national Web board, Thai Visa Dot Com, where our news reports are re-published on a daily basis.

Readers with an email address and password for comments in the Gazette Online may use those same credentials in the new Phuket Forum, meaning that they will not need to register in the Phuket Forum to post comments there. Simply log in one time and opt to ‘stay logged in’ (unless you’re using a public computer).

For some readers, the Phuket Forum will offer advantages over the Gazette Online. Comments in the latter can only react to stories, but in the Phuket Forum contributors can go pro-active and Start a Topic – and even post a good-sized photograph to go with that topic.

So if you wish to ask, praise or complain about Phuket tuk-tuks or Patong nightlife, or get views on Phuket’s best beach, haircut or hamburger, simply click here.

A second key feature in the Phuket Forum is the classification of Gazette news reports into 12 Phuket-paramount categories, including tourism, environment, property, business, crime, corruption, public transport, road safety, etc.

The new story classification system enables forum users to search both by story category and, as soon as our data migration is complete, on words or terms in the body text of more than 12,000 Phuket reports going back 15 years.

The sleek new Phuket Forum is fast, intuitive and clean as a whistle. Bookmark it and let Phuket’s largest online community know what’s on your mind.
