... the indonesian paying forum. I have noticed that there almost none of it in the Indonesia, a paying forum which support Indonesian language only. I was thinking of making one, but I really don't have any idea of how it would be promoted or how it would be protected. What do you think about that? I really need your input. thanks

Sorry, pake bhs indo aja ya...biar gampang nih. Coba promo dimana aja, cause Indo people gak cuma surf di lokalan aja. Mereka lebih tertarik yg LN punya. Jadi jng cuma promo lokalan, karena kurang efektif juga... met mencoba....

I am so sorry, but you're not allowed to post with other language than English here. Please read the guidelines. Thank you for your input, but there are lots of people in Indonesia who doesn't want to go to international forums because they have to use English which they couldn't do that. I would like to open opportunities for Indonesian only. You know that there are lots of programs which only available for US and Canada, or UK only? Why can't I make something for my own country? And again, siauwming, please use English, though I can understand what you're talking about, I don't want my Indonesian fellows got banned and couldn't earn money here.

Are you serious ? If you create a paying forum, many people from Indonesia would join in your forum. you know Indonesia has 8 million internet user and all of them can make your site have high traffic. About promoted you can promotion at Indonesia local forum and about protected I don't know I hope your plan can be reality soon. and I will be first or pioner member on there GOOD LUCK !!

Thank you, Srikandi. I really want to make this come true. But first of all, I need to assess what in people's mind about what i have to do about the forum. The rate per post and all. And of course I need to get some money to get the forum set up and to pay the members. I don't want to make a scam. I want to be the first and the legit one. Do you think IDR 100 per thread, IDR 50 per post would be too low? I want to make a forum which cover all issues and interests. So you would be able to post as much as you can and in every forum. What do you think about that?

I am aware of detik.com and kaskus.us. They got money from the traffic but never give something back to their user. They are free forum. If only I could make something like that, I would probably able to make lots of making money opportunity to people around me. 8 million internet users in Indonesia, not mention Indonesian people living in the other country and our neighbour country, Malaysia who can speak Indonesian as well.

hi klaudine, im sure that this discussion draws lots of attention from indonesian. i didnt realise that there're lots of our fellow indonesians here. sorry for the late reply, but i really like ur idea and i hope u can fulfil it soon. be sure to count me in too. for the referalls part, i believe as indonesians, the spread of mouth is the best way. so first thing first is to make it a reliable one. and of course, u have to commit in it if u started it. so make sure u have enough time to set aside some of ur time in it. some of suggestions from me, i think u should create pretty strict rules before launching it, for instance the copy paste function from mylot here. and i think the most important thing is to control the content of the discussions post which might be a tough job for you, since you should know that many times, from just an unintentional opinion may turn out to be racism mark in other people point of views. really proud of you to think of this idea, u have my support :D

Thank you neztin and for your and other indonesian fellows' information, the paying forum I was talking about has been launched almost a week ago and started to grow. I know it was slow but yeah, it is growing. The rule was strict, indeed but I didn't know how to make the functions like what he have here in myLot. Thanks so much for your input and your support, I would love some comment after you have joined the site as well.

Hi all. Wow just found out that there's alot indonesian in mylot. Your idea is really really good. I think IDR 100 is enough just like in here. I'm sure going to be the member n ask people to join in, coz you know there's alot of indonesian know how to speak n write in english but they're not confidence to do it. So, plz let me know if it really happen:-)).

Thank you keykan. I am trying to find the best way to make the forum and I am trying to gather some money to realize it. Once it is realized, I would surely tell you and all Indonesian fellows in myLotters about the forum. I know that there were lots of indonesian people who actually know how to make good discussion, but some of them are troll in free forums. The paying forums would limit their freedom a little so that they would not spam nor flame in threads. I would need lots of moderators to control the forum. That is what I am working for now.
