    Just wondering how people want this to be like in this forum. Just the same old FT but with more social networking or something more different?

    For one these forums seems more "swanky" in the sense they just seems to offer so much more a bit like fb in a forum i guess some might say.

    In respect to what could be different, you can post differently here so i think the differences in how people people will set the two forums apart.

    Are you planning on double posting everything?

    I will wait and see how things go. I plan to stick with one in the long run. But in the mean time, I guess double posting is the solution :p

    There's a pressure to be nice on this forum because of the "like" button. Maybe I should stick with FT so I can be as mean as I want :p

    I guess we will wait and see how this forum develops over the coming months. I love the look and feel of it already!

    But I will try to give MP some limited time exclusive contents, say my HND lounge report will be posted here before posting on FT :p I will give this a chance to see how it goes with that trip report.

    Sounds like a good idea. Are you coming to Japan soon?

    Well unless Fumitani or someone chips in here soon it will just be us replying to each other. Why PER?

    Lets hope the JAL part of this forum is just as active or more than on FlyerTalk.

    Well I don't want to follow two forums. So hopefully only one will be enough. Unless they are reasons to do so. But I still couldn't find one :(

    There will be an exhibition in 2012 that I want to go to but just like most of my plans, most likely I won't be going. :)

    One thing that should be easier is organising our meet ups as we have calendars as all sorts of fancy software at our disposal here.

    You never know. Although it all seems terribly familiar with all the same people hanging around...

    I think I will stick to MP after the official launch. I am starting to like those new features, esp the alerting feature :) Hopefully there will be more people joining after the official launch. The last thing I want to do is to double post everything :D

    I see you still haven't mastered consolidating multiple replies into one post though! The new features are pretty cool, I agree.
