You may already be a member, you may have thought about it but been put off for some reason, you may not have needed it, but maybe now’s the time to log back in and have a browse around, or to sign up and take a look and get chatting about Symi, Greece. There’s lots to learn, lots of nice people to meet, helpful tips from regular visitors, and Symi residents alike, and it’s more specific and focused than many of the Symi Facebook pages – and not everyone has a Facebook addiction. It’s also friendly, positive and poses no technical challenges to those who are wary of being online.
I am talking about the Symi Visitor Chat Pages, as they are sometimes called. It’s actually the Symi Forum now, as the following information from the Symi Forum community outreach press and publicity department officer explains:
“Symi Chat” the internet forum run by Symi Visitor has moved to a new home: symiforum.com
Over the last eight years its 820 members have made more than 31,000 mostly Symi-related posts on the site.
Much has changed in the internet world over those eight years and the creaky old software running the forum was well past its best-before date, causing no end of bother. So, a new forum was set up, running on fancy modern software and after a lot of faffing about, most of the posts from the old site were copied over.
The user accounts were copied over too so members will be able to continue using their existing username. Passwords have been changed though. Most members will have been sent an email with their login details, including a new password, so should be able to log in to the new site. Anyone who wants to continue using their old user name but didn’t get their email (the email address list is very old!) should contact email@example.com for help.
Anyone who had the old forum symivisitor.forumco.com bookmarked should change their bookmark to symiforum.com The links on the Symi Visitor home page will soon be changed to take you to the new forum automatically.
Me: So, I’ll leave you with this and their link [Symi forum] and the suggestion that you might like to a) renew/refresh/use your membership and see what’s new, b) sign up (free of course) for a new membership and start browsing and chatting, c) pass this post on to others who may be interested, or share this post around Facebook, and d) pop in to the new-look forum and wish everyone a happy Christmas. See you back here on Monday though, don’t be late!
