Re: Problems at the other CBF?

To be fair re CBF because it was specific to the Fethiye region for those of us in that area it got into much more detail and information and so was very much the " go to " site for problems/issues solely in that part of Turkey

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

Ah, this brings back some fond memories..... Here is a little history lesson for anyone interested.

I visited Fethiye whilst looking for a place in the sun, I couldn't find much information on the internet about Fethiye the only two sites I came across was CBF and a small bulletin board called Degaliyan.

I was in touch with both site owners and got interested in Forums when Scunner (CBF) had some technical problems with the forum and I offered to help fix it.

The other forum was just a kind of mailing list at the time, very primitive, I offered to build it into a real forum based on the software CBF were using, so I completely redesigned the forum, the agreement was that I would do all this at my own cost but earn any revenues from adverts.

After a while couple of senior members thought it unfair and started to cause problems between me and the forum owner.

I was pushed out, and as the forum was my creation I refused to give it to them, they rebranded and started AA, I started my own forum and TurkishLiving was born.

I purchased AA few years ago as the owners had moved to Spain, I have since redesigned the layout but mainly leave it to run for the members who prefer a smaller group.

TLF has had it's ups and downs, we have been through a few coup attempts, even assassination (character) attempts, rip off copies.

Thankfully we have survived and I hope to continue providing a platform for members who want to engage and people just looking for information on Turkey, I don't have a political or religious agenda or do it for any financial gain, that was my original goal and still is.

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

I think its just a sign of the times, many of the original members of the forum are now sadly no longer live or in love with Turkey, since we bought here 15 years ago most of the people we met in the early days who " moved here for life" have either returned to the uk or bought somewhere in europe. Turkey is a changing, and in my view not for the better. I do love Turkey warts n all but life is not easy here. We have just sold up, and are about to start a new journey in Northern Cyprus, will we love or hate it? who knows but we've enjoyed most of our time here, but its time to move on to our new adverture. I will keep visiting the forum to see whats going, and being a member has been very helpful over the years, and whatever happens l hope the forum continue to be active,

Sharon

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

I know exactly what you mean Sharon

Personally a pet hate of mine is the type of idiot who after enjoying Turkey for years then continually slags it off after they decide to leave

Turkeys a beautiful and fascinating country. Like you I had quite a spell there and enjoyed the overwhelming majority of my time and experience there.

For various reasons new challenge etc we moved on but I will still visit there and would have no qualms in recommending it to people to try

I can say definitively there are aspects of Turkey which I do miss and won’t better in my new area Valencia.

You have to make a judgment in the round and it’s always exciting moving on for better or worse but Turkey and it’s people will always be great memories for me

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

A first post from me. I have been a member of CBF for a few years and seen the decline tbh. I agree with what Jaycey has wrote.It is honest and to the point.It certainly was very cliquey and has been for a very long time Certain members that were totally protected from any remarks against their post but were allowed to post whatever they wanted no matter how nasty and without any warnings from modererators at all.It was tbh a form of bullying that even the boss Scunner encouraged as if he i'm sure got a kick out of it.I have seen a lot over the time I was a member and could name many names but tbh if it never opens again I won't be sorry.Come on anyway. Why say its read only. Come on close it and be done with it. Turkish Living Forums is here.

Re: Problems at the other CBF?

Does anyone ever post on this forum or is it going to be a read only forum like CBF.
