5000readerssubmissions4 - Stickman Celebrates 5,000 Stories

A massive cult following makes Stickman’s Guide To Bangkok the most widely read website of its genre on the Internet. People may criticise Stickman’s controversial style, but nobody can deny his success in terms of volume of visitors. Today we look at one aspect of Stickman’s enigmatic, but highly popular website…

Back in 2001, the very first Stickman’s Readers’ Submission appeared. When Stickman published, “You Saved My Marriage,” it was the start of a new section on Stickman’s very popular website. Over the years, Stickman’s Readers’ Submissions has flourished into an extremely popular section. March sees this special section celebrate an incredible 5,000 articles. Unlike chat forums, these are articles written to a minimum length of 800 words. Some are thousands-upon-thousands of words long, which contributes a HUGE amount of content. So what’s it all about? Well, it is an enormous repository of encounters and observations, many of which are about Western man and Thai woman relationships. The ‘east-meets-west’ stories range from highly hilarious, to terribly tragic, to downright disasters!

Thousands of contributors send their Thailand-related stories into Stickman every week and some individuals have submitted over 200 articles. Stickman commented, “To everyone who has contributed to the readers’ submissions section over the years, many thanks for your support and for making this section so worthwhile.”

New Year’s celebrations turned deadly in Bangkok’s Thonglor district, when a horrific fire killed over 60 nightclub revellers. Although some foreigners died in the blaze, the majority of the corpses were thought to be Thai women. Over 200 other Thais and foreigners were injured in the ‘Thai-ring Inferno.’ A ring of fire suddenly engulfed Santika nightclub in Ekamai, Bangkok. Many people were unaware of the fire until it was too late. British survivor Alex Wargacki, 29, tells how he was saved from death by the ‘hand of an angel’ after collapsing and falling unconscious…

 “I woke up and heard this voice saying, ‘Come on this way’,” he recalled. “Then I felt myself being dragged towards an exit. A crowd of people parted in front of me and then I was out in the open air. Had it not been for this voice with the hand of an angel, I would not be alive today.”

It is truly horrific to think that this happened during New Year’s celebrations. The special party was named ‘Goodbye Santika.’ The house band are called ‘BURN’ and there were crosses and coffins on the walls. This was a popular venue with Hi-So Thais and foreigners alike. Forensic specialists from the Thai Police are currently investigating the cause of the fire.
