Update: The forum is now live, and the competition running.
When we first started the Qatar Visitor website in July last year, we discussed whether or not to have a forum. We decided against it, at least for the time being. There were other forums out there, we didn't think we had enough visitors at the time to make it work and we didn't see the need.
We changed our minds.
One reason is that we felt the need to make the website more interactive. At present, there is no way for people to give us any feedback, ask us any questions or just discuss matters with us. This is just one of the ways we hope to change this - we are also in the process of adding a comments section to the articles.
We realise that there are tonnes of good chat and social sites out there - Facebook has a huge Qatar group, and many local users also favour Qatar living for their online chatting. However, the majority of our users (who now number about a 1000 a day) are coming to Qatar Visitor to look for jobs or for information about moving to Qatar - we often get emails when visitors don't find answers to their questions on our site - and we hope to specialise in answering their questions on the forum.
Finally, the best forum in Qatar has started a Qatar guide section - so we thought why not start a Qatar forum section for our guide :)
We will be officially launching the forum on Monday 5th May. At the same time we will be having a competition to celebrate its launch - details and prizes to be announced!
As always, any suggestions will be gratefully received!
