Work permit criminal record

I am interested to work in vietnam and have been looking into the requirements for work permit and one of the requirements is to be free of criminal record. How strict are they on this? if you have any previous offence is it a dead end? I have a minor theft offence from 16 years ago when I was a teenager that i just got a small fine for. Will this cause me problems?

Puff

I've noticed an increasing tendency lately among the reviews and some 'answers' to questions to be basically puff pieces (propaganda) for someone's business, e.g. fantastic cheese products bring the latest example. 5-star 'reviews' of the business by the business. I realise things slip through the net, I guess I should flag stuff more but I mostly goggle, no google. Is it just me imaging this trend? Shouldn't the mods punch more people, virtually?

Why is the New Hanoian becoming a forum for put...

Why do so many members of this site take the time to critique and put down peoples legitimate questions?


























I enjoy perusing the New Hanoian while I have coffee in the morning and before bed at night, recently a majority of what I see is negativity towards new-comers posted and belittling comments.





















































Why do so many of you feel the need to put down others?

I have 4 new spots to this site but after checking I find that all of them are still in the mode of "unverified" even though some of them were added months ago. So what's the criteria for a spot to move from Unverified to verified? How long does it take? Is unverified spots not listed in the Top Spots search? I can't find the spots I added by searching for it in Top Spots.

Japanese Pull Saw and Western Finishing Product...

I spent two hours in the old quarter recently searching for a Japanese (style) pull saw to no avail. I find there is no substitute for cutting precision dovetails. Can I find a Japanese pull saw in Vietnam or will I have to order it from abroad? Any tips on where I might find one would be much appreciated. Secondly, I am looking for finishing products such as amber shellac, brushing lacquer and boiled linseed oil. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find these products? ...

Classified got deleted, what did I do wrong?

I’m a bit confused about the rules for the classifieds after reading the overview and would like some guidance after having two posts deleted. My questions are this: 1) Am I using the classifieds section incorrectly? If so, what can I do differently? Or, is what I have posted just too inappropriate for the classifieds section? 2) Does anyone have any advice on how to post what I want without it being taken down? I’m an English teacher who happens to be interested in hypnosis / NLP and...

TNH Front page is messed up.

Within the past 24 hours, TNH site has gone incredibly wonky on my iPad, so I'm curious if it is my device, or if it is the site. Oddly, the only page within TNH where I am having trouble is the homepage. I'm not having issues on any other site, just this one. Banners are a mess, and icons are in incorrect places- like words where "star ratings" should be. Any ideas?

Near-enough useless activity stream

I find the latest activity stream ridiculously uninformative. Half of it is stuff I couldn't give a rat's about - and I have to spend 5 minutes deleting notifications to get to what I want to know about, ie. who's responded to my thread/answer or given me props, or what people I'm interested in have said on threads I'm following. Can't there be some kind of weighting system? If here is, it's badly out of kilter. If someone commented on your post, surely that should goes to the top of the ...

A problem with the reviews around here

Why are people allowed to review establishments even though they have had no direct experience with them? I was looking at the reviews for Singapore International. A guy gives the place 1 star because he had some kind of road argument with the driver of one of the school's buses. Another reviewer throws in another star simply based on what she has heard from other people. These are just examples, plenty more can be found (VIP bikes has a few if I remember correctly). Since there are spe...

Wouldn't it be good if we could review products...

We all know it's possible to rate spots. However, what if I want to warn others not to buy the crappy model of motorbike I bought, or extol the virtues of the marvellous Truc Bach beer? Would it be possible to have a new section that reviews products? I think with some regulations as to what can be posted*, this would be a very useful section of the website. It could be categorised to make it an even more valuable source of information, and users could add outlets or shops that sell the produ...

Banner Blindness and the New Hanoian

I have been noticing a large number of the new posts to this section have been breaking our sacred rule of not asking questions that have already been thoroughly answered elsewhere on the site. I believe that the answer to this phenomenom is three fold. The first cause is due to the still inadequate search feature. Here is an example; after seeing a news story about the one year anniversary of the junk boat tragedy in Ha Long Bay, I tried to find the ANH thread about it by searching "Ha Lo...

Ask ANH

... is TNH's Q&A forum. If you've got a question about life in Hanoi that you think you should pose to someone in the know, here is the place to do it.

Search before you post! Many of your questions have been asked and answered before. If you need additional information on a past post, or want a more recent update of the information, add your question to that thread. Doing so will return the thread to the top of the list. Try to avoid posting duplicate questions whenever possible.
