@mamser...yes, but if you look around, usually on the dash near the meter, you will see a notice that all meters are -10 PHP. Chris is exactly correct, you are entitled to deduct 10PHP from the meter reading.

@  mamser : (29 May 2015 - 02:21 AM)

seriously Chris? in all of metro? i've taken at least 10 white taxi rides this past month and all of them started at 40...

@  Mentalist : (29 May 2015 - 02:01 AM)

@Kinky Kiwi no but she gave me one of her cooking funnels after I said how effective it looks.

@  Chris in Makati : (29 May 2015 - 01:52 AM)

The initial flagfall fare for white metered taxis in Manila was reduced from P40 to P30 at the beginning of March. If your taxi hasn't already had it's meter adjusted you are entitled to deduct P10 off the fare if you want.

Did you pull out your bag of toys Mentalist and show granny what you use them for in the Philippines :P

@  Gibson 1959 : (28 May 2015 - 01:02 PM)

No doubt she did some mongering there in her early days ...

@  Mentalist : (28 May 2015 - 12:57 PM)

she started talking about Dumaguete or something so I let her run with it :WinkGrin1:

@  mamser : (28 May 2015 - 12:52 PM)

so what did you tell her Mentalist?

@  mamser : (28 May 2015 - 12:50 PM)

i definitely didn't pay 1,200 last month to take yellow taxi from NAIA to Makati. it was more like 400 give or take.

@  Mentalist : (28 May 2015 - 10:58 AM)

Fuck, my church going grandma asked me "so, tell me about the Philippines?" Ummmm, yeahhh. She gave me $50 for birthday which is a solid ST. Thanks Grannie

@  FurryFriend : (28 May 2015 - 09:59 AM)

it was around 2am, some guy could have put in his own rates

@  FurryFriend : (28 May 2015 - 09:58 AM)

come to think of it, ur probably right

@  fieldsguy : (28 May 2015 - 09:50 AM)

LOL anyone can type up an official sheet.

@  FurryFriend : (28 May 2015 - 09:17 AM)

the official sheet said P600

@  fieldsguy : (28 May 2015 - 07:47 AM)

Yes the so called coupon taxis. Although I thought they were p450 to Pasay. Furry must be furious.

@  PhillySteak : (28 May 2015 - 07:29 AM)

Yes they do like i said they start at 70p instead of 40p. They do have set rate taxi TICKET rates which may be what furry got screwed on

@  fieldsguy : (28 May 2015 - 07:21 AM)

yellow taxis have meters, there is no official rate. You were ripped off big time furry

@  FurryFriend : (28 May 2015 - 04:30 AM)

I can definitely tell you 4 months ago that the flat official rate from NAIA to Taft/EDSA was P600. I could have walked it in 30 mins if I didn't have bags. Those yellow taxis are a fucking rip-off. What a way to welcome new visitors with 4 times inflated taxi rates.

Help Topic: Viewing members profile information


To view a member's profile, you can click on their name from nearly anywhere in the board. If you'd like to view your own profile, you can click on your name in the Login bar underneath the board's header.

In the main profile view, there are two semi-static areas, then a tabbed area in the middle.

Personal Information
This area, to the left, contains a variety of the user's profile information. This includes the personal photo (if they have uploaded one), the user's rating, a variety of options (such as finding their posts), the user's personal statement, along with some more details about the individual, such as their age, gender, and location. Further down the left, you'll see their statistics and post count, along with their personal messenger information.

In the center of the profile are a series of tabs. Here, you can find their recent posts, a listing of their comments, and a listing of their friends (you can view the friend's profile information by clicking on their name). Also, if the board has the Invision Power Gallery or Blog components installed, you will see two additional tabs. The Gallery tab will show the last six uploaded images, while the Blog tab will show the last five blog entries.

To the far right, you'll be able to see who recently visited the person's profile, any recent comments left, and a listing of the users recent friends.

Adding Comments
You are able to leave comments about other users. When you bring up their profile, on the far right you will notice a section of recent comments. If you click on the "Add a Comment" button, you will then be able to leave a comment.

Moderating Comments
If a rude or otherwise offensive comment is left to you by another member, you can delete the comment in two ways.

First, you can click on the "Comments" tab, scroll to their comment, place a check in the box, then choose "Delete Selected Comments" from the dropdown list at the bottom. Secondly, you can click on the small "X" button next to the users comment in the Recent Comments area.

You can also approve and un-approve comments in a similar method. Unapproved comments will not be displayed, while approved comments are displayed to the public. Instead of choosing "Delete Selected Comments", choose Approve or Un-Approve selected comments.

Rating a User
The profile supports a user rating system. This will let other users rate down users that cause problems, or value the rating of good users. To edit the rating, bring up the member's profile, then click on the stars to choose the rating.

Editing Your Profile Settings
When viewing your own profile while logged in, you'll see an additional tab in the middle called "Settings". Choosing this tab, you'll see some more information to help edit the settings for your profile. Here, you can upload a personal photo (like you would any other attachment) or choose to remove it. If the remove box is checked, the photo will be removed when you click on Save Settings. Also, you edit your personal statement. This is very similar to your signature, but is tied directly into your profile rather than to your posts. A little bit further down, you can choose how you'd like to be notified of people adding you as a friend or leaving comments. You can choose not to be notified, or notify by email or Personal Message (PM). At the bottom, you can choose to approve comments before they're posted to your profile, and also choose to approve a user adding you as a friend.

On the left hand side of the profile screen, you can edit your personal information. You can set your gender, birth date, location, and also edit your Personal Messenger information.
