      Post editing time   31/08/18

      Hi folks, please note we have reduced the time you can edit a post to 30 minutes. The ability to edit a post is there for you to fix up things like typos and grammar before the Grammar Police descend on you or to clarify a point you where making that, on seeing it posted, you think could be worded better. Unfortunately, the length of the previous editing window has resulted in several posts being totally changed or deleted which can result in the resulting replies, and indeed the whole thread, being totally nonsensical (over and above the usual that is ) and shows disrespect to the BMs that participated in the discussion. If you wish to clarify a post you made after the window has elapsed, you can easily quote the relevant part of your post and do so. If it is a serious issue, as per current practice, report your post, giving a justification as to why the change is needed, and the mods will deal with it. Just because you made an arse of yourself in the post is not a valid justification. Remember, pause and think before posting re adherence to the rules, legality and the "Nice to be Nice" ethos.

      Nude or not nude, that is the question   01/05/18

      An inordinate amount of the Moderators Teams time is spent on ensuring inappropriate images are removed from the forums where necessary as per Rule 29. On investigating why people have posted nude images in a non-advanced area, the vast majority of the feedback we've had has been "I didn't realise where I was".  Therefore, we have added a visual indicator to help you quickly identify whether you are posting in the advanced or the non-advanced area. If you are in an advanced area you will notice the page background is now a pale green - green for go.                               If you do not see the green background it is your responsibility to double check where you are on the site prior to posting any images/videos. This is doubly important for those using Tapatalk due to the fact we have no control over the Tapatalk theme (i.e. Tapatalk users will not see this visual indicator). Offenders will be sanctioned.

My drivers license/IDP doesn't have my passport number on it.

Every trip I take a side trip to Sa Kaeo and over near the Cambodia border and sometimes up to Buriram and back to Pattaya. There are several road blocks and check points going each way from about Kabin Buri and on. When I'm not just waved thru, and have to stop, they always ask to see license and passport.

Although TT always have a sign up saying show passports they've always accepted photo driving license as ID.  Have they changed policy since January?

Refused my car licence in February. Tried 2 and then just went and got my passport from the hotel.

I am the opposite. I get stopped at various checkpoints outside Udon Thani, several times a month for the past few years, and all they have been interested in is my oz licence and IDP. Never been asked to produce my PP.  Recently organised a thai licence which they now glance at and wave me on.

The US has what they now call a passport card.  It’s essentially a credit card sized version of a passport but no the official passport.  I wonder if that would work if asked?

I've been speaking to an African girl I 'matched' with on Tinder. I've never met her but she just told me she was stopped a few hours ago on WS by the cops. They didn't accept her passport copy so a friend had to get the original from room.

 

Obvious caveat being she's black, and there have been operations to clamp down on 'people of colour' lately, although it's still worth noting a copy wasn't accepted. If you're caucasian Chris from Essex you'll likely be alright.
