Marhaban (Welcome) on the forum,
Before opening a new topic, please take a few minutes to read some pieces of advice below
You have been reading the forum for a while and you really would like to post something, whether because you have an interesting story to share or because you have some questions to ask....
don't be shy and go ahead ! ^^
Do not forget that the members who will reply to you will take time to share, exchange, help and participate. So I hope you will remember that when you will be here all settled and you will then be the experienced one who can help
Before writing :
- Take time to go through the previous posts to make sure that the subject wasn't already covered. Reviving an old topic helps restart the discussion and avoid to multiply the threads on the same subject.
- Smartly select the title of your topic. It has to be clear enough to attract all the persons interested by the subject to participate and answer.
- Ask one question at a time. I know that when you want to expatriate, you have ten thousands questions popping but it's more easy to reply to one issue at a time than to have to write a novel just to reply to a post. One could find it intimidating!
You are free to come with more question later.
- And please don't forget to introduce yourself a little!
First because the replies will be more personal whether you will come alone or with a family, whether your kids are babies or teenagers, whether you(re employed, looking for a job or free lance, whether you already came here or not... Etc.
It's also much more pleasant to talk to someone than to feel like you are just an information desk.
Finally, remember that a forum is a network of human beings.
Behind each nickname, you will find people, reacting with their own views, filters, knowledges, education. Even with the best will, one can be wrong or have a narrow perception on something, or even have personal opinions.
Don't forget to always put everything into perspective !
