Timog Forum is 1 year old!


08-22-2005, 06:51 AM

Today, August 22, 2005, Timog Forum turns 1! Take a look at the very first post that started Timog Forum (http://www.timog.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1).

I remember the time when we were just starting out, there were only a few members and even fewer posters, you could leave and come back several days later and there would be 0 new posts. In fact, we were desperate for new members, we even had a referral contest, which no one won because nobody referred anyone! Yes, I know, it was pathetic.

So we’d like to thank all the very first members who signed up and was active from the early days of Timog Forum until now. Dax, daddy_b, goldhorse, cyclops and kalypso comes to mind. There were those who registered but didn’t have time nor inclination to actively participate in the forums; we thank them, too, for their silent support.

Of course, aside from the very early sign-ups, we’d like to thank every member who made Timog Forum the active, diverse and helpful Filipino Community that it is today. Registration is still quick and anonymous, and the forums are open for everyone to read so even unregistered guests can get something useful from our little website.

So, as Timog Forum turns 1, we hope that with the help of our members, Timog Forum will become much more active, diverse and useful for the years to come. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.

Happy Anniversary to Timog Forum, and to us all! I think this Forum has come a long way from the time when there were only a few participants to unitl a few months ago when there was quite a noticeable jump in active posters. This of course is a result of the efforts of nick and the other moderators to make this Forum a warm and friendly place for not only Filipinos but for people of other nationalities as well who are in Japan or who have an interest in Japan. May our community continue to expand, and may its members become more active in its second year.

Omedeto Gozaimasu!

Dear Nick and Reon,

TIMOG Forum has turned into one big ambivalent crowd, may be hard to maintain, but I guess that`s your calling :slight_smile:

I just hope your energies never peter out.

Ima made hontoni arigatou!!!

And thanks also to all the pithy contributions of Paul, Pointblank and Andres. Hey, am just mentioning the names of those who buoyed TF during its doldrum state, ha.

But of course, I also thank the new but active and entertaining members!

Yours truly,

Thanks for all the nice comments from everyone! It’s nice to think that we deserve the credits, yet the members deserve it more, I believe.

I hope that as our community grows, we’ll continue to get along with everyone else and try to make every member feel welcome in Timog Forum.

(@makulit: Yes, attachment is disabled for all members; let me fix that. By the way, stanfordmed’s image is not an attachment; the image is stored in the Gallery and displayed by inserting its url in her post, by clicking on the “Insert Image” icon on the menu bar of the message editor.)

btw, bakit pala Timog Forum ang pangalan nito? :confused: curious lang po.

bakit hindi Silangan (Land of the Rising Sun), or Hilaga (nasa may north ng Pinas ang Japan :smiley: well more accurately NNE)?

Dax-san, sa palagay ko, iyan ang tawag dito dahil nasa may Timog ng Japan ang Pinas:D Para ito kasi sa mga taga-Timog(pinoy&pinay). Hindi ba?:wink: Hula lang po…


08-26-2005, 11:30 AM

Ah, ang point-of-reference ay Japan, hindi Pinas! Hehe. Baka nga iyan ang dahilan Teddy-san.

Oops. Mali ang choice kong smily…:stuck_out_tongue:

hello dax at teddy,

noong wala pang timog at napag-isipan na naming gumawa ng website, lumabas siyempre yung issue tungkol sa pangalan. ano ba’ng magandang pangalan para sa isang website ng mga pinoy sa japan?

noong panahon na 'yon, may mga domain names ako na hindi ginagamit at ang pinoy-sounding lang ay “timog.com”. gusto ko itong pangalan na ito: madaling matandaan, madaling sabihin sa mga tao (“punta ka lang sa timog.com”) at madaling i-type sa url address.

wala namang koneksyon ito sa mga pinoy sa japan. wala rin namang ibig sabihin. parang maganda lang pakinggan ang “timog forum”. personally, pag sinabi mong timog, ang naaalala ko ay timog avenue sa quezon city. :smiley:


08-27-2005, 10:30 AM

personally, pag sinabi mong timog, ang naaalala ko ay timog avenue sa quezon city. :smiley:

Iyan din naman ang pumasok sa isip ko nung una kong malaman itong website na 'to:D

Medyo off-topic, but… may alam po ba kayo dito sa TF kung saan meron ng magagandang restaurants/bars na may :thumb: reggae bands na tumutunog sa gabi sa Timog Ave. or Quezon Ave.?:band:
