    While this pertains to the entire Travelfish forum, this is particularly common on the Companions branch so I'm posting it here.

    Please do not post email addresses or personal telephone numbers anywhere in the forum. Posts that do so will either be edited or deleted.

    To contact other people, please use the Private Messaging system. Yes, it is basic, but it works.

    It is not enabled by default. To enable it, do the following:

    * Click on "Member Centre" (top right of page once you are logged in)
    * Select Member Profile
    * Edit Profile
    * Enable "Private Messaging"
    * Make profile "public"

    Save and you're done.

    Note the other person you want to contact also needs to have this enabled.

    We release this is less convenient than having it enabled by default, but we thought, because it means you'll be emailed whenever someone messages you, it is better to be opt-in rather than opt-out.

    Thanks

    Wise advice, as always. For the record, I met up with three people using this section of the forum back in Feb 2012 and we hung out for just over a week, Bangkok to Koh Phangan and the full moon party. We had a blast and most importantly, found that we had a lot in common and had similar desires for our travels. I had to return to work otherwise the week would have turned into months. Thanks to Somtam and the Travelfish community!

    Too bad you had to go back to work!
