Hi Martin and welcome to the forum!:)

It's not an email site, and although it doesn't have "live chat" like MSN, it can be incredibly active at certain times of the day....so all you do is join in/contribute/post on a subject of discussion on any thread you care to choose, or start your own thread with something you'd particularly like to discuss/receive opinions or information on. Usually someone will respond anyway to your posts - and they're a good bunch on here!

Happy posting!:)

....I suppose it's something inbetween - although I don't know what the technical jargon for that would be!!:confused::D

Just found how to post a "Thread" you have to go into the expat forum market place and click on NEW THREAD, think that is how it is mentioned, then you can put you questions say Hi to all and away you go. When you learn anything new let me know. Someone sent me a private message but don´t know how to do that yet. To answer a thread all you do is click on "reply" and then type, "submit" and it goes through, really great!

Hello Betty to you too!

Yes, for those of us who aren't technically minded it (like me!!) it's a bit of a faff at first getting around the place, but you'll soon pick it up...

If you click on the top right of the page where it has your username on the "private messages" bit, it will take you right to it - then all you do is open it up...and reply if you wish!

Hi there Betty!
You know, to post a new thread you don't need to go to the" market place". You just need to go to the opening page for spain expats, here
Spain Expat Forum for Expats Living in Spain - Expat Forum For Expats, For Moving Overseas And For Jobs Abroad
Then, go to the top and scroll down a little, look on the left hand side, past where it says marketplace and expats lounge and there it says New Thread.
Got it?
The thread appears on this page :)
