Default Good luck guys ...

Hi guys. Glad to see the new digs here for keris collectors. Just dropped in for a free cuppa joe and see who's hanging out.

Nice roomy space you've got Rick and David. Hope you guys have a great series of discussions.

Stay cool.

Ian.

Question

Good luck from me too.

Keris threads were always strong dominant here on the board, so I believe creating separate Forum was just what many users needed - but... isn't it the first step to split the main Forum in the future - this is just what we decided to avoid in many discussion earlier!?
Aren't you afraid of such conclusion, or maybe moderators decided to change policy of this place ?

regards!

Michael:

Yes, we had a long discussion before going forward with this. Rick can fill you in better than I can. As you say, the keris crowd are a strong group (and strong-minded ).

Ian.

Smile A Little Different Here

Hi Michael ,
Please don't worry about any further fragmentation of the Ethnographic forum; that will not be happening .

The keris is unique among edged weapons and I strongly felt that we needed a place for in depth discussion of the subject . This forum will touch on the effects of the different belief systems that have swept through the area of the keris and their effects upon its development . We will range far and wide on the subject and hopefully into new territories .

The study of the keris is so complex and sometimes controversial that a separate forum with a freer atmosphere to express opinions and yes, argue constructively and apart from the general forum rules was needed .

Keris threads can get problematic at times and we felt that they needed to be moderated by members with a certain amount of insight into the subject.

There are only two moderators here and this forum will be our only responsibility.

Everyone of course is welcome to participate; we're only a click away .
Feel free to share a cup of Kopi with us anytime you wish .

Rick
