The new system is a complete overhaul of
It has a brand new look, is easier and faster to use and has lots of new
features to make your penpal experience simpler and more enjoyable.
1. No more complicated UserId numbers!
the new system uses just your Nickname (Handle) and your Password.
2. If you forget your Handle or Password, the system will email them to you
on request - no more waiting 24 hours for an administrator to find them
3. New online help screens
Until you become familiar with the new system we suggest that on each
screen you look for and click on the HELP button for a detailed explanation
of what to do on that screen.
4. Automated Profile Creation
Many penpals have told us that it is hard to think what to say in their
profile. The new create a profile program has a number of preprogramed
interests and activities that you can click on or select to have them automatically
included in your ad
They also have a rating system which ranges from "Essential" to "No
Thanks". (Use the extreme ratings ("ESSENTIAL!" and "NO THANKS!") sparingly,
since they will narrow your field of matches considerably. They are to be used only if
your matches either must have, or must not have, a certain interest.)
NOTE: only answer the questions that you want to answer.
Of course no simple collection of traits and interests can really define
a person. So the create a profile ends with a free format comment box where you can
give a little information about yourself, your interests and what you are
looking for in a penpal. This section is where you can quote your direct reply
email address if you have set one up. (See Mail for more details on how to have
a special email address for penpals.)
5 Automatic Matching
When you create or update your profile, the system will compare your
answers with every other member's answers and give you up to 6 matches of the
people who most closely match your interests. It will also notify those people
Members can view profiles of their matches, and interact with each match
via a private message board. Each private message board is accessible only by
the user and the match.
6 Greater Privacy Protection
When some one posts a reply on your private message board you get an
email notification telling you to login and view your board. This prevents
snoopy friends and family members who share your computer from reading your
messages, which they were able to do on the old system when the entire
message was emailed to you!
7. Photo Upload.
We now have a very simple means of uploading your photo into your ad.
As long as the photo is stored on your computer and you can tell us
where the file is, we can upload it instantly.
Now it's time for you to try it out!
