    Everyone the JMB Forum Diamond Premier Lounge is open for business :)

    As a tradition of the JMB forum, people like going OT all the time :rolleyes: and therefore we have this lounge thread. But since this is an upgrade of FT, our conversational thread has been upgraded too from the Sakura Lounge to the Diamond Premier Lounge :p

    Let the OT conversational begin :D

    But one request though, if there's a specific thread on your topic on this forum, e.g. Meet up related discussion, please try to use that thread instead. Thanks!

    This is the uber OT thread :p

    Although this is the JMB forum, most of the time we talk about the airlines too. So I guess we will continue the same here. Hey there are only 5 contributors here. We can set whatever rules we want as Randy suggests :p

    I still don't get why I get English ads when I am living in Japan. I get the same ones on a Japanese computer when I view this site too which seems like such a waste.

    Well I think the reason are

    1. Google / Doubleclick ad delivery system : when they see you on an English dominant site it tend not to show you Japanese ad
    2. As mile point is still in beta it may not attract enough attention to ad provider....

    The banner ad system on google is quite different from the basic adword system......

    Simmo, are you going to apply to be a mod this time if they open up?

    PS: Sorry I get used to that name. Nic and I like that name more because It's way "cuter" than Simon although in no way that you are cute in person :p

    What's Ahead

    So Japanese version is coming (and Chinese partner too)! So there will be a more active JAL forum coming? And a few of us can't understand it :eek:

    Guys, if you want to use the IM feature, you need to follow each other. I believe only your followers appear on your contact list

    JALPak, you know you are a second-rate JMB member if you live outside of Japan [​IMG]

    It's to make up for all those ridiculous credit card deals we don't have access to. Some Karma thing, apparently.
