hi how can i send a question in forum

You can open a new thread on any section of the forum and ask your question.

Thank you

Dear sirs
Of course am not intending to send spam  i just would like to go to the country but as you know people are always hesitating in such a step. That is why I tried to send to more than one participant as i expected few may reply (people every where are busy and might not have the time to communicate).
And there might be a mutual benefit for me and the person  i contact there.
Thanks

I m not making cpy and paste but , I cant send any message anyway could you help me please ?

Help yourself by reading and following the rules laid out for new members in post#1 on this thread.
By following these protocols you will have your message system activated.

The idea would be to go to the specific country forum and open a new thread there or read through posts there for the information.
That is a much better way to get a range of information from different people rather than one person's views.

Hi,

in order to ensure quality to our users, and to considerably reduce the number of spam sent by private messages, we decided to set up a few new rules.

But we'll start with a few explanations.

Our definition of spam ?
Unsolicited emails or private messages.

How we detect spam ?
90% of spam is sent by new users
90% of spam are "copy and paste messages"

Please, please...
Don't send the same message to several users without taking the time to explain us how we could help you on the forum.

If you are a new user and if you post more than 5 copy and paste messages, your private message system gets blocked.

Stop asking us to unlock your PM system
You can unblock your private message system by yourself. How can you do that ?

Please take the time to present yourself on the forum, to participate to a few discussions (with real answers), and your private message system will be unlocked. That's it !

I'm sorry, i was ignorant about the term and rule here.....
i wish my messages can be unblocked..

I am new user.

@ZYA

As this section of the forum is not the place to post your request on, I suggest that go onto the correct section of the forum and post there.

And you possibly have not learnt anything of the requirements / protocols of being a member.

You used cut and paste on your previous post. If you did understand that post, you would have known that cut and paste is not allowed on this forum.

Until you follow the rules regarding membership then you will never have your pm system activated. The last paragraph tells you not to ask to have your system unblocked.

It is of never ending surprise and annoyance to myself and other members as to how new members immediately complain when they cannot send messages to complete strangers, feign ignorance of where to post on the forum yet have sufficient grey matter to post complaints on this thread.  :dumbom:  :whistle:

How can send message to others or even to start a forum

You can start by reading, understanding and following the rules in the post you so nicely cut and pasted here (cut and paste is not allowed !!!)
You have to earn the right to have your pm system activated. This is not a forum which you can simply join then start sending out unwanted, unsolicited messages to total strangers.
Simple really !!

Why I still cant send a message to other members??
Thread starter said that I can unlock my account by myself
Please explain.

Thanks

No explanation needed on behalf of the forum.
You very obviously have not taken the time to read and understand the rules regarding membership and the requirements to have your pm system activated. Try reading post #1and the many other posts here on this thread that explain it all.
Who would want to receive an unwanted message from a complete stranger ??  :dumbom:
Good luck. :whistle:

Hi ! My mistake pasting the similar messages in order to avoid typing too long. Sorry for that.

Ok, I understant it now :D

thanks

good description, thanks!

I was blocked, but I think it is not due to the copy/paste of messages! Has anyone faced with this problem?

You need to post on other sections of the forum to have your pm system activated. Posting here on this thread will not count towards having the system activated.
You have to posts a number of times. This is done to prove that you are a committed member of the forum.
No silly one line posts. All posts must be informative and topical. Nothing of a religious nature.

Read the many posts here on this thread that explain how things are run on this forum, especially post#1

Ramis_1 :

Hello, is that fine for now?

No, posting pointless rubbish on this thread won't help.

can you unblock my messages
i have not done anything wrong for my messages to get blocked

Only you can unblock the system, please read and understand the very post on this thread.

Hi.
I can't send message to my friend.
Why is that??

Im sorry. i didnt know that.

I understand your policies, and was not aware of them. Wanted help from Indian expats in Oman, so filtered them and sent them what information I wanted. Anyway I have posted a forum post before sending the requests. See the following for reference :-

http://www.expat.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=759991

Request you to please unlock the PM. Thanks.

These posts were removed as advertising and contact details are not allowed on the open forums.
Perhaps I may request you read the posting guidelines before trying again.
Your advert in the correct section doesn't appear to be a problem, but your PM system can only be unblocked by you.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Please advise how to unblock my PM?

There are no step by step instructions.

You need to read, understand and follow the protocols laid out in post #1 on this thread along with the hundreds of other posts here that explain it all. Read through these posts.

You simply cannot join up and start sending out unwanted messages to complete strangers.
To prove that you are serious about becoming a contributing member you have to abide by these rules.

This is done to stop spammers and scammers from joining up and then overloading the system sending out unwanted unsolicited messages.

oooppps I got blocked!
anyway, Im eya a filipino looking to live in France to be with my boyfriend. Would go there on a tourist visa, but would have to make plans to be able to stay longer. I would like some information on how other expats did it. thanks!

Hi Eya, you'll be better off if you go to the French forum and ask your questions there.
You get better response than here.
