The answer is: LBR's superior software ! .... but I would like to go on full record with my life's history of online ladyboy boards: My first exposure to a ladyboy board was the old AsianTS porn website that had a very crude forum area for the paying members. At the time (mid-2000s), I was using cracked passwords from the internet to get in for free, so I knew better than to post at all ... After only 2 or 3 years, AsianTS stopped making updates with new models and it just fizzled out in membership and traffic, including the forum... Circa 2006 I was going a lot to Pattaya where I hung out at the now also defunct sissy ago-go Stringfellows (soi Yamato) that had a website with its own mini-forum where every week the owner shared bikini photos of the sissies on staff and customers like me would check them out and gawk in anticipation of forthcoming visits. It was not the kind of multi-topic forum we are used to now and I only posted there once about one of their ladyboys (Nan the star) who did a runner on me and made a scene when I refused to pay full price. Somehow in 2008 or 2009 (?) I learned about LadyboysPattaya (aka Pyongyang/PY) upon its inception and I must have been among the first 100 BMs there. At the time, I did not actively check it other than just before my trips and I never posted anything of interest. Then in 2012 Jimbo and his C&D groupies posted some harsh crap about one of the C&D ladyboys who had a breakdown while at work and quit C&D in a very heart-breaking face-losing manner after 5 or 6 years of working there even before Jimbo came into the partnership. I cared a lot about that ladyboy (more than I have ever cared about any other) and posted in her defense confronting Jimbo and the groupies with her side of the story and with their own ganglike bashing of a younger person in predicaments... They were all very dismissive of me at first but it took me only 2 or 3 posts for them to realize I knew far more about that ladyboy and ladyboys in general than they did and to cast as jerks the lot of them. That's when the crossdressing mod intervened and hoovered me away. But one of the advanced BMs took interest (pity?) on me and PMed me to advise to go easy and try to win BM hearts and minds with content contributions (stories and pics) such as the ones I had made in defense of the ladyboy that had been interesting to all despite the confrontational context. I had a trip coming up in 2013 and decided to do a TR which was an instant box office hit for the Game of Thrones theme I used and of course for the abundant pics of naked sissies. And the rest was History! as I became the most viewed contributor at PY until I was banned in 2014 for using a sidekick account I had created to interact with myself with humorous posts (and could not resist giving myself some extra likes). But since that sidekick account was not banned I stuck around PY just not contributing much until 2016 when I became an even greater box office hit because of the Hitler videos and a 007-themed TR I did on an impulse in honor of Roger Moore right after he died. Despite the time and effort I put, they never let me back in Advanced BMs and in April 2019 they banned me again out of sheer spite and jealousy spurred by a whiney cunt BM who had just become a mod and by his rabid ally who took advantage of the incompetence (or disingenuity!) of another mod that had slandered me. That's when I decided to give myself a 6-month break from ladyboy boards while looking for a new one. There were only 3 choices: (i) TLF would be the more obvious one as banned PY BMs tend to regroup there to vent their resentments, and it has the most action after PY; (2) the ladyboyforum.com that used to rival PY in traffic but began to be eclipsed in the mid-2010s; and (3) LBR which had even less traffic but to me had the best zeitgeist of our field, including allowing guests to see most of the content which I had done over the years without feeling the need to be a BM. In making my choice, I took into account not just the sites' popularity but also their user-friendliness as for me it's important to have an on-screen interface conducive to creativity, quality editing and media sharing. TLF has a very limited and outdated interface that is not visually appealing to me at all and the supporting software would limit the editorial quality of my contributions. LBF's software is a little better but they set up the website with a black background that personally turns me off when I look at the screen. In contrast, LBR has the best board software there is (Invision) which is also the software they had upgraded to at PY just prior to my banning. But what I really wanted out of the Invision software and LBR was the option to start clubs, which I was familiar with from other non-ladyboy boards. I felt that, unlike at PY where some of my unique contributions would be lost forever as soon as the respective thread got bumped to p.2, if I could concentrate them in a club of my own they would be indexible and accessible much longer. Being the club's mod, I would also be able to protect those contributions from haters which had been a big problem at PY with BMs seeking to devalue and insult me. So in December 2019 I joined LBR with a view to getting a club of my own. I had long seen the clubs tab at LBR but since there were no clubs I was not sure they were allowed (like at PY where they are not and you can't even see the tab). So after I joined LBR, the first thing I did was see if I could start a club and went through the motions all the way to the "submit club" button, which I did not do right away as I wanted to wait to be in good standing with the mods. Apparently they were not familiar with the clubs option, and encouraged me to try it to see what would happen. And that's how the Romscars club came to be the first BM-managed club in the History of Ladyboy Boards. Other clubs have since formed here at LBR, and a greater share of the posts is being made at the clubs than in the general areas of the Board. I am sure at PY they are now also aware of the clubs option, but they chose to continue not to offer it which tells a lot about the editorial decentralization (FREEDOM) we enjoy here relative to PY's centralizing totalitarianists. The other 2 boards' softwares, as far I know, can not offer that option. And that's why I joined LBR. How about other BMs? What do you find here that you do not at the other boards?
