Q: Do we need a pinned post?

So after yet another skin colour related post it got me thinking. Wouldn't it be easier if there was a pinned "So you've just arrived in China" post, where skin colour, visa and other topics that crop up every month by someone new can be covered?  These are pretty obvious issues with China. Do these people really think they're the first person to mention them?

it seems that some sort of Admin is needed: maybe having one is an expensive luxury.

I notice that the 'answer of the week' is almost 3 months old, the 3 questions on the main page are almost as old, and articles and news are either re-posts of re-posts or just lazy posting of someone else's terrible blog.

 

Some of the 'new' posters seem to be trolls posting under different names in the hope of stimulating extreme comments.

As MissA says, there is an element of 'venting' but when a new poster launches straight into extreme general 'questions' rather than genuine specific queries, and they so obviously fail to contribute with answers or any follow up debate, i would question the level of moderation on this forum.

 

true it is summer now and this means fewer new issues are being raised, but that is no reason for feeding trolls.

I think they're just venting half the time, not looking for a real answer.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
