Posting your introduction - please read first!

Welcome to the forum. If you are about to post your first message then you are in the correct section. Please take a moment to consider a few points about the purpose of the introductions forum, and observe the following points.

1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself. Some suggestions might be why you are here, where you are from, how long you have been here, etc. You may also wish to update your profile information under "my settings" so people can know a little more about you.

2. Please do not use the introductions forum to ask specific questions, ask for help etc. Please post your questions separately (if unrelated) in the relevant sections of this system. For example, if looking for an apartment then post a question under "Apartments", or if looking for information about insurance then post your question in "Help and Tips". The reason is that any replies to these questions will be kept on their respective threads, making it easier for other people (as well as google) to locate specific information they are looking for in future.

We thank you for taking the time to help us preserve some structure and order in this forum - thereby making it a more useful resource for everybody.

Re: Posting your introduction - please read first!

Please also bear in mind that it's worthwhile doing an introduction as:
  • it's polite
  • it gives a little background about you to suppliment your profile (which you have of course filled in )
  • and thus allows those replying to your question(s) to perhaps offer something a little more specific and helpful to you

Think of it a little like real life; you'd not barge in somewhere and demand information, help and so on - so try to apply the same social ruleset here

  • Please don't post using TXT SPK. If you do and are warned about it, please accept the advice - it's for everyone's benefit that the English used in posting is UNDERSTANDABLE.

Re: Posting your introduction - please read first!

Please post your introduction in English which is the common language of this forum. If at any point you use a language other than English then please provide a translation so that everyone can understand.

Re: Posting your introduction - please read first!

There recently have been some patronising and innuendo-laden answers to introduction threads. They can put off new users and don't represent the aims of this community. Posts of this kind won't be tolerated, and deleted without notice.
