Sitemap - We Are Now International! - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

With the recent acquisition of the domain name, RF Cafe is now officially an international entity! This is so because in order for me to own a .eu domain name, I have to have a business representative in a European Union country. That is provided by the registrar, Network Solutions. Like so many other things, there are ways around just about every requirement set forth by rule makers. It is kind of like in the U.S. you can establish a corporation in a state other than where you actually reside (e.g., a Delaware or Arizona corporation) as long as you have a formal business partnership in those other states.

I know from watching website statistics that about 20% of visitors to RF Cafe originate from outside of the United States. Most of those come from EU countries, Japan, Korea, India, and Canada. When scanning the Web for daily headline articles and other items of interest, I bear in mind my international audience and try to provide a mix of topics that reflects everyone's needs. Most articles of interest to RF Cafe visitors are by the very nature of today's marketplace international, so finding relevant information is not difficult – just time-consuming.

For now, is sitting idle, as is I am open to ideas for what to do with the domains, other than merely creating mirror site of the existing – although that is an option. Thanks.
