It appears that the "Services, Work, etc." section may have been set on a short fuse self-destruction just like the "Buy & Sell, Rent & Let" one and many past exchanges of village wisdom have been lost.

Kind of unfortunate that the mojo of the forum search has been so dramatically compromised.

Good suggestion, Pit.
I've just disabled the 30-day autopruning of the Services forum. This had been enabled several years ago due to the volume and short shelf life of the messages in there, similar to the Buy & Sell, Rent & Let forum where topics still expire after 30 days of no new posts added to a topic.

For our Bilingual Yellow Pages, see the left column of the home page where all kind of Lamma-related Quick Info is linked, including the very extensive bilingual list created and still online in our Chinese forum:
http://www.lamma.com.hk/forum-OK/viewtopic.php?t=2202&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=39

The Yellow Pages are a bit out of date as they rely on people telling me or the forum about their services and contacts which hasn't happened. Send me your contacts to be added to the list. Any help to get our Yellow Pages updated would be most welcome.

I've also just added mouse-over pop-up titles to the ...of the Week pictures at the top of these forum pages...
Any more recommendations to improve this forum further are always welcome.

That's a pretty unusual and inefficient way of keeping up-to-date with new posts, I think.
The Recent Topics box at the top of the forum main page is just an add-on MOD I added a few years ago, mainly for new or occasional forum visitors and non-members.

The usual way for forum members to see the latest posts would be to click on View posts since last visit in the upper right corner of the forum home page.
You'll get a personalised page of just new posts you haven't seen yet, totally customised for you, and it's several times faster that loading the forum home page. This link has been there since the beginning of the forum 10+ years ago.

This direct link is my browser's Home button and major bookmark. It's also where you get to straight from clicking on the "Forums" link at the top of the Lamma.com.hk home page and ALL Lamma-zine pages. I very rarely visit the forum home page as it's much slower to load than any of the other forum pages.

Anybody willing to help updating our Yellow Pages? We could crowdsource it and get everybody submitting their own favourite local services and contacts. I've got the local bars & restaurants covered comprehensively in the Bars & Restaurants Index. But to collect and proofread all these small local contacts needs some help. Maybe somebody could check out the current Yellow Pages and help to update at least the existing contacts, please?

Edit the current info, fact-check the current contacts, delete the ones gone out of business, and add new ones you know about from your own list of local contacts!

Every Lammaite has name cards and a list of handy local contacts, like plumbers, repairmen, shops, etc. Share them!
Name cards would be ideal and I'll scan and publish as many as I can get, adding them to my own extensive collection. Local businesses might be eager to get themselves added to a free and public Yellow Pages, much more comprehensive, informative, attractive and up-to-date than any of the other few local directories, like the very poor PCCW Yellow Pages above or the seriously out-of-date OpenRice Lamma restaurants index.

Post your contacts here, please:
