Photography in Malaysia Community Section:
The respective Message Boards are some of the HARDEST hit section of the PIM site, if at any one time, the traffic is high - the table/content may take a while to load the data, just be patience. If it stalls, just click on the 'Reload' or 'Refresh' button on your browser menu once to re-attempt. Thank you.
Share common knowledge & exchanging experience with your views on photography. I know the original Free Trade Zone section may has some restriction imposed on its content (only Buy/Sell Stuffs), but as requests are pouring in to create another section for other subjects other than buy/disposal of equipments, so, as much as I can offer, I have used the template for other existing message boards to create another section for all of you to use. As this is a non-profitable section, so I didn't ask our programming staffs to creste a dedicated thread-like format. I am not sure if this has served its purpose but nevertheless, it is a channel for all of you to utilise to express other thoughts on photography-related issues. A few volunteers have been appointed to edit the content as it requires. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views. Enjoy.

WARNING!! DO NOT make any payment into these accounts: Maybank -514114225451, 111177084801(lynx Tiong), Lee Cheng Kiat - 112111391219. Mobile: 0142871238. He is a CONMAN and have cheated quite a number of people so I take this as a serious issue and I hope other will do the same. I think ftz should come out with a ban list of account number, names and hp. That at least could save some cash!
p/s: Why my warning posts at ftz has been deleted? I was trying to warn people from getting cheated.
A NOTE from the Co-maintainer: Although we dislike what we read with the occurred incident. But We have to delete your posting on the market place (FTZ) on the ground of of avoiding repetitive posts IF not, the FTZ will be simply flooded by comments/postings relating to this issue. HOwever, we have added a note and ask the concerned party(ies) to contact you for more info and/or resolve the pending issue. IF you think the case has a basis and need some basic info as evidence for lodging a polis report, we will do whatever we can to assist. But in the mean time, we also allow the seller to defend himself here if he likes to. But from a perspective of an independant observer. The SMS exchanges between buyer and seller are more useful and probably with the Police report, you may be able to seek further help from the respective phone provider(s) to retrieve the exchanged text messages.
OH.. Reminder for other FTZers IF WITHOUT PRICE AND SPEC CHANGES, please DON'T makes repetitive post(s) of the same item, once we have spotted you, we will have to exercise our right because of that specific reason). Further, we will be "INCREDIBLY SENSITIVE" with your name/email used in the future).

Thank you to Francis for highlighting this issue. I needed the item badly so I told myself to take the risk. Well, I was right... I was shocked to receive some mails from this "Lee" victims. I think that we should have a list of con-man email address, account number and other details to avoid this kind of crime to spread. Not healthy for us!
Btw, why my posts were deleted while I was just being nice and care to warn people? Where should I post it then?

My posting here on 18 September 2006 was, unfortunately, not read by a FTZ poster named NR. He was struck by the same "Lee" who tried to play a fast one on me. Read today's posting on the FTZ.
Granted that it is not the business of MIR or anyone else to protect reckless and sometimes pre stupid buyers who fall prey to conmen lurking in the FTZ, I am wondering aloud whether we can put up a BEWARE OF FRAUD warning sign at the FTZ.

I am quite Happy to see the new FTZ for computers (and others) http://www.mir.com.my/MPUG-FTZ/index.php3 is also picking up in it usage. As for some of you who runs your own businesses, you can also use here to promote your business as domestically things is getting slow, we need to go outside to explore possibilities: http://www.mir.com.my/MIR-FTZ/index.php3 (I noticed The Chinese enterprises are more aggressive than our own Malaysian Companies). Wondering where the hxxxll did they managed to find this new FTZ-Business spot.
In the near future if these two new FTZ extensions are picking up steam in traffic, I might have to invite some of you to co-maintain the two new boards. Thanks.

I also think we cannot entertain [item Sold] placement. Imagine every poster post one [Item Sold] ads later, then 50% of the posts will be the [Item sold] post. If every poster put up 2 posts to announce their items already sold; then 67% of the post will be [Item sold] posts. Keep it clean, please.

I support the move to delete all (Item sold) ads in the FTZ board. It is neither a SELL nor a BUY and serve no purpose except to litter the board. If a poster cannot handle the hassle after the posting; think twice before you post. I noticed the board is much cleaner these days, and I don't find as many (Item Sold) ads on the front page. Great efforts by the maintainers. TQ

Dear Francis:- Points taken. We will be more careful on that. But please bear in mind, each day, there are a couple of ten Spammed postings (The FTZ is clean because there are Eight volunteered co-moderators helping to monitor the content). But the incident could be coincidental, we are sorry and will be more careful in the future. Ooi .... Co-Maintainers: JAGA JAGA next time if not we will kena DART again !
Johan2: Personally, I think this board is quite under-utilized as compared to the trading section. May be it can/should be converted into a Photo Discussion area. We cannot force users to use it so, up to the FTZ-Kaki Kaki to decide if it is useful. Cheers.
