      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.

this will end as of April 1st 2019 that came straight from the horses mouth. But SS direct deposits will still be allowed

If SS deposits will work, I would guess a federal pension would work as well. But good to know. Thanks.

Unsure if this is "more official" or not, but at least they contacted the Thai Immigration.

Well done to Billyboy294 for his early indication that this change was coming.

But it really is disgraceful of the BE that such important news about a discontinuance of the Income Confirmation letters had been advised to others (Austrian Consul + others?), possibly on the 'Cocktail Circuit' before notifying those who are directly affected.

Even worse that the decision seems to have been pending since May and an announcement delayed by some 5 months. In the knowledge that such a change will mean a review of the financial  situation of those affected. Particularly where a need to build up a cash deposit of B400k/800k might be the only alternative given the uncertainty as to whether Immigration will accept the income option without any Embassy letter. That still being the situation as Immigration have not made any comment on this decision by the BE.
