We have new members joining on daily basis, usually because they have a question to ask or looking for information on Turkey.

A lot of time new members are not computer experts and maybe it's the first forum they have used so don't know how things work and how to find the information they are looking for.

So my request is that if you are a new member, browse the forum first, read the FAQ (links at the top menu) and use the search facility also at the top menu to look for answers, chances are your question has been asked and answered in the past, if you can't find the answer then go ahead and introduce yourself and ask your questions.

Existing members, please be gentle with newcomers and guide them with your knowledge and understanding, don't forget the time when you didn't know your google from your url.

Finally the forum is based on a very powerful database system, there is a lot of information stored here so please use the search facility to get the most out of it.

I'm more of a watcher than a poster but I agree this forum is one of the best; it's a mind of information. A credit to you Mustafa.

You all do a fantastic job on this Forum.
Thanks to everyone including members for the continued helpfull info and tips on "Life in Turkey"
The experiences on the Forum have encouraged an improved "Trust" of people from all nationalities.creeds etc and is a great information "Bridge" between holidaymakers and serious potential Turkish Residents.
Thanks to all concerned with the Forum

Is it possible to tell me why a very good friend of mine is been denied access to this forum, she lives in Turkey and is a very nice lady. I just don't get how or why she would be refused.

Any clues?

Please note that a requirement of membership of this forum does NOT include the ability to write perfect English or a spelling and grammar test.

It is apparent that we do have a number of people who post here who have difficulties in English spelling and grammar for various reasons. Some of them might feel intimidated by their problems being mentioned in a negative way even if not directed at them personally

But it is refreshing to read a post from someone who DOES have the ability to write in a legible style - even if only by way of introduction!:clap2:

Thanks for those very kind words Fendouglas. If you click on the link below you'll be able to read the rest of MY well written post, from 25th February 2009, that's been copied and pasted by the "Spammer" grarudspi. :roundgrin

I am proficient in balderdash, doggerrel and gibberish, unfortunately English and Turkish elude me.
