TA Member Interview

Been reading all the interviews in the forum here and it was fun. Thanks Beedzu for the great idea.

It would be a waste to let these interviews to fall off to the bottom of the forum. Why not edit the Top Question about Bali and link up all the interviews? It would be great for any newcomer to read up a bit about all the Baliholic in this fantastic forum.

Only a DE is able to edit the Top Questions....i would love to do it but i'm not from this forum although i do log into this forum for my Bali fix.

Whats your opinion on this?

Hi MK - while I agree that the idea was (and is) fun, I would suspect that the TA Mods wouldn't like this as it's not a "Top Question" strictly speaking. Top Questions are about the Visa On Arrival, Weather, Money Changers etc. We don't often however get forum members asking where Linda52 buys her bamboo underpants on a regular basis. I know that a few of the Bali DEs have toyed around with the idea, especially since Helm0 compiled them all on his website, but just on the basis that it is fun, I would anticipate that TA wouldn't allow such fun and would want to keep the forum pretty business like and travel focussed rather than turning the site into a social network/chat site.

I've not been in communication with the Mods about this, but this is my reading of the situation based on past dealings with the Mods. I've surprised actually that they didn't close some of the threads down.

Absolutely right though that it's been a nice way to get to know some of the regulars a bit better.

yes i agree with happynoodles,

i think that alot of people looking at tripadvisor want TRAVEL info on Bali.

JBRs are also informative for a more detailed story of ones holiday, face book is enough isn't it for chatting/social site.

JBRs are in my experience can be very informative, fun & interesting now if they could be put into a group that would be helpful ...maybe

At least the website that helm0 created collates the interviews, which is an alternative of sorts. I started this with the intention of keeping it mainly Bali focussed (in the hope that we could get it sticky-ed), and it still is to a certain degree. However I understand that not everyone is interested in the interviews.

A forum search comes up with them I think.

Yes i would love to have it pinned but am sure Noodles is right, it is not a thread that answers travel related questions so am sure it would not be "allowed".
