THIS WEB SITE

Q: Why do you show the text of searches that have been made on your Lost Relatives page, but you don't show replies that members of the public have sent in?

MEMBERS' AREA

Q: Looking at the map of your members' area, it seems you have more good stuff in there than the rest of the web site. Why not open it to everyone?
Q. How does the joining mechanism work?
Q. How do I get in touch with other members by email?
A. After logging in you will find a new link, List, at the bottom of the screen to the right of MEMBERS AREA. Clicking on the link will take you to a full current list of members - you may have to wait ten seconds or so for it to form. We don't give out postal or email addresses, to prevent spam. However, members who are on email will have SEND EMAIL next to their name on the list; click on that, and a text field will appear in which you can compose a short message to introduce yourself to the member of your choice. Members who receive such messages - identified by the words at the top "Message from the Britain-Burma Web Site" - can then, if they wish, reply by normal e-mail, which will tell the sender what their address is.
I am afraid we must require members who send messages from this page NOT to send what amounts to advertising material. If anyone receives spam or abusive mail through this route, please let the Secretary know.

The same membership list contains brief self-introductions from many of our members.

Q. If a member leaves the member's area, does he or she have to log in again to return?
