      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is not down - just running very slowly due to the task of reindexing the millions of posts in the database due to an upgrade of the server software. Unfortunately it is difficult to predict how long this will take to complete so all BM's are implored to be patient. You can all help to speed this process by refraining from posting pointless stuff and please avoid uploading photos till it is finished.    Sometimes users are experiencing very slow page reads or error pages and this is caused by server load.    Please note that many of the old features are not available atm but this because they cannot be reinstated until the reindex is complete - so don't be too concerned about missing bits as yet. However .... please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.   Current Progress as of 8pm Bangkok time 20 March 2017     Current Progress as of 2:30pm Bangkok time 21 March 2017     Current Progress as of 1:00pm Bangkok time 22 March 2017     Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. Wish you luck, but have to be prepared to hold on for a long time to come. Bottom for condo sales in Pattaya not yet reached. Could get really ugly. Joe
  2. Yeah , that's because you post as newbie (when you are not ) I gave that advise ..... , "old cargo" hiding under "newbie .. You can say that. (21 years working in Thailand before, got 3 times married and than divorced. Now, for the last time, married to Pinay. Joe
  3. Thanks David for your advice. But some years ago I was owner of a View Talay 1 condo and know the market. I only like to check if there is an owner which can offer a real good deal. I know plenty of condos available all over Pattaya, but actually I prefer Jomtien. Joe
  4. Looking to rent a nice condo on a one year contract, starting 14th march 2017. Price range 8 - 14000 Baht. Must have swimming pool. Joe
  5. Yes, its expensive, but if you dont have the funds or YOU DONT WANT THE FUNS TRANSFERED TO THAILAND, then not a bad option. Remember, you also can avoid the visa runs.
  6. wrong, here how it works exactly: you must have at least 20 days on your current visa, which will be converted in a Non O visa, this will give you a 90 days visa. Then they will provide you with a 12 months retirement visa extension, giving you a visa of total 15 months. And now the important fact: THEY WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THE NEEDED 800,000 PESO IN THE BANK (MUST BE BBL, they will assist you in opening the account. My friend paid for all this 25k and is now happily living in Pattaya. Joe
  7. Ok, interesting, as Goolabert said, works yes, legal no. I wonder how many retirees are using this easy option. (Available since ever, costs between 16 - 25 k) Joe
  8. Some lawyer offices advertise openly that they will take care of the needed funds to obtain a retirement visa. So one has to assume that this option is legal (and really works at least for one of my friends). Joe
