I sent off a request for the password to post in the penpal forum, but haven't heard anything back. Does anyone know what the typical turnaround time is for this?

TIA,
Carolyn

Um, I'm starting to think that it involves meeting during a full moon where new members are invited to sacrifice a pair of their favorite shoes by hurling them into a roaring bonfire that's surrounded by marshmallow-roasting long-term forum members. If you bring just the right number of Hershey bars to finish making the s'mores, you get the password. Maybe. FWIW, my calendar shows 2 more days to go....

A lot of times for some reason requests end up in our junk folder. Have no clue why they do it, but they do. And 99.9% of the time we catch them, but occasionally....
If you are a new member or a member that has never posted, you will be required to do 2 posts with 1 of those being an intro post.
If you are a member who has posted numerous times, you can get the password without an issue.
Sorry if you sent it and one of us admin's missed it. As much as we like to be 100% on top of things, sometimes when multi-tasking as we homeschooling Moms do....stuff slips through the cracks.
Re-submit a new request via the Contact Us as you did before and one of us will check your membership and contact you ASAP with either the password or reminding you that you need to do posts prior to getting it.
Under normal circumstances it takes 24-48 hours for us to respond to Contact Us. If it has been any longer than that, feel free to contact us again....like a little whap upside the head to make sure we are paying attention!
Thanks everyone!

Thanks, Ms. Admin! I got your email with the password this evening. I'm not much of a head-whapper cause I really do understand how crazy life can get...I hate to be a pest. Most of the time. :-)

Thanks again! BTW, looks like my full moon guess wasn't too far off. There's a big honkin' bella luna out tonight!!

Could we get on this bandwagon too? My DD is interested! Also, do any of the grownups here do the penpal thing? I love the lost art of letter-writing!

Check your PM box!
And as for adults, if there is enough adults that would like to do this? We can open a section just for adults! Feedback anyone?

Me too! Something to liven up these dull winter days would be lovely. I have fond memories of the volumes of letters that my best friend and I sent to each other in college.

I sent the online request but didn't hear anything. We would love a password. Our main interest is pen pals and holiday card exchanges.

Thank you for the direct response Admin, much appreciated. Unfortunately I couldn't reply to the message for some reason or send to you directly. I'm hoping you see this here. My family is seeking a password for the children's pen pal forum.

Many thanks. This is such a great site! I'm finding so many ideas just from browsing old threads.
