Philippines Forums The Evolutionary Stages
Over the years, Philippines Addicts has evolved into one of the best resources for foreigners in the Philippines with topics on every subject you can think of and more. A lot of hard work, research and time have been given by thousands of different people throughout the World sharing their first-hand experiences so that others may benefit. We hope this has resulted in making the best possible Philippines forums experience with the most information from a wide audience of both younger and older people. This is a huge difference as all the older message boards contain topics that are useless to a person new to the Philippines. They also do not have a constant stream of new memberships like Philippines Addicts with at least 30 new members a day on average. This is done using the social networks to drive additional traffic, making other filtering websites that bleed referral traffic from other sources on a daily basis, a fast 2 server array with updated software, constant backups and new equipment based on the backbone of the Internet in the United States. Philippines Addicts has a loyal following which reaches throughout the Philippines especially places like Cebu, Boracay, Palawan, La Union, Mindanao, General Santos and all points North, South, East and West. We maintain a staff of professionals to help moderate and keep the board as friendly as possible. Our basic motto, “if you don’t have something good to say, please don’t say it all” holds up mostly but we do have an excellent section on common scams, alerts, and tips to help you avoid trouble in the Philippines.

Once Philippines Forums or Message Boards reach a certain age, they tend to become shells of the earlier days of building up a community. These communities tend to grow an ego or “a life of their own” becoming a good old boys club which alienates newcomers. The turns a helpful resource into an exclusive club leaving anybody new to the “scene” feeling left out. The same holds true for any large community if things are not constantly changed and a steady stream of new members join and add new fresh perspective to the conversation. Look at any longtime forum community or resource and you will notice clear differences. Those differences are generally because the core number of posts are made by the same people. This makes for one-sided talking instead of fresh outlooks and more updated information. Along with the interesting dynamic of younger people and older people clashing with their widely different views on life in general. This makes for a very interesting discussion on every level
Fresh Ideas New Partnerships Philippines Forums
Philippines Addicts is constantly building new working partnerships with other webmasters makes for an atmosphere of growth, vigor and forward thinking, not insider talk and good old boys mentality which leads to stagnation and exclusivity making the casual reader feeling left out or afraid to view their opinion. Philippines Addicts also has a very unique and personal dynamic no other Philippines Forums has and that’s a regular person showing them the ropes with several other fellow board members from around the World. At the end of the day, most people want variety and no egos or back slapping but conversations with deep universal meaning. A warmer atmosphere also breeds more people revealing things they normally wouldn’t tell anybody because others inspire them to do so.
Philippines Addicts is a collective Philippines forum dedicated to providing up to date information for the seasoned traveler, expat and new traveler to the Philippines in a friendly civil fashion. It has taken over 6 years of hard work to get to a point of over 4,500 visitors a day, 1.3 million monthly page views and yearly page views of 14 million page views.
