Anyone using this forum service for the first time!

Firstly, I'd like to point out that Forum posting is great fun! You can meet some wonderful people online who may become lifetime friends or even more; and if you're learning any language, it's a great way of using and improving your knowledge of your target language.

Everyone has a right to an opinion - particularly in the Discussions forum. You may share your own but never belittle someone else's opinion. Please think about your comments before hitting that 'submit' button. Take a second to imagine how it may make others feel. Any comments which could be seen as insulting or racial will result in a ban - without warning.

All members must be respected. This forum is open to members all over the world (and very proud of it) and it’s very important that each and every member feels important - because you are!

No personal publicity allowed here at all either!! If you have anything to be S*O*L*D, here it's NOT the place!!! Do it privately and on YOUR OWN risk, not inside the group!!!

If you are participating in any topic about SWAPS or PEN PALLING , please let's share to each others ON THE RESPECTIVE TOPIC, or you can OPEN a NEW TOPIC. ((( don't forget to tell us what are you talking about!!! hehe )))

So NOBODY can get confused about what we are talking about here,ok??

However, it is possible that people looking for e-pals, pen pals or pen friends online may encounter some problems.

By knowing about these potential problems one can try to avoid some of the traps, which may await.

Therefore I have put together a few of the most important things anyone looking for any kind of friendship online should consider before adding an address to a site.

Addresses must never be given on a post as this is an 'open' forum and can be viewed by non-members. Addresses can be given via PM at your own risk.

Most free Forum websites have a large number of people using the service, and when a large number of people are involved with anything, not everyone is going to be either honest or nice.

Some people visiting pen pal sites do so in order to find people to try to scam. Please be aware that many scams on the Internet do exist. Most scams involve people asking for money or saying they have large sums of money that they wish to invest or that they need a bank account to transfer the money to.

My advice is to avoid anything that looks in any way similar and immediately contact admin or moderators.

Because of this sort of thing, I offer the following warning or guidelines to consider before placing your details on the Internet.
  • When placing an ad consider using a free email address service, especially for pen pals. Doing so protects your own email address and your personal information.
  • When composing your ad, give only general information about yourself, nothing specific.
  • When you start getting responses to your ad use extreme caution whenever someone brings up the subject of money. Anytime someone on the Internet starts talking about money be very suspicious.
  • However plausible people might be, NEVER GIVE ANYONE YOUR BANKING ACCOUNT NUMBERS, ID NUMBER, HOME ADDRESS, and PHONE NUMBER OR CREDIT CARD NUMBERS!
  • Think very carefully before arranging to meet anyone in person, you have met online.
  • If you are approached about money from anyone on this site, please PM admin so that this person can be tracked and monitored.
Sorry for all the rules, but we kinda need them. Nothing really needs to change, but apparently we need to have this here to cover this forum!

If you follow these guidelines, pen palling will be great fun!

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.

I keep seeing that people are posting strange things in the intro section.
I am fed up and now simply delete that post....

Take your time to find the place where things should go... If unsure please leave a foot note and I will gladly move it for you....
