Welcome to 'The Watering Hole'

Postby Reditor » Wed Feb 14, 2007 5:23 pm

Across the plains of Africa, wildlife gather to drink at watering holes. Likewise, friends congregate at their favourite watering holes to share good drinks and good food. Like elephants who can recall ancient watering hole locations from years gone by, we encourage you to share your memories and wealth of travel knowledge. Welcome to our Watering Hole - a refreshing stop before, during or after your travels.

This is your community and your opportunity to share stories, swap travel tips, solicit opinions, make new friends and re-connect with long-lost travel companions. We encourage you to register, to participate and to share your knowledge and enthusiasm.

Discussion Forums evolve over time, shaped by the user community and a group of volunteer moderators. If you have questions, comments or suggestions on how we can improve this forum please post them in Website and Forum Feedback or email us at forum@gap.ca.

Thanks again and we look forward to meeting you online!

Hi Bsonschi,

go to the "Departure Lounge", choose the month you'll go (in your case obviously October) and look for your trip. If no one of your tour has posted yet you can also create a new thread. You have maybe more luck to find your fellow travellers there.

Good luck and have a great trip :D

Hi Laura,

It could be that yours or their mailbox is full. If yours isn't full maybe post a quick note asking them to check theirs.

If you continue to have problems, please feel free to send me a PM and we will get it sorted out!

Cheers,
Sinecure

My understanding is that messages stay in the outbox until they have been read by the person you've sent the message to.

Confused to how I can change my username...can't seem to find it anywhere and this long number has been assigned to me.

Can anyone help? I'm probably missing something obvious! :roll:

Administrators - Please help these new members to pick a user name instead of random characters. We'll all appreciate it. At the least, if someone is working on this, they should be acknowledging that there is a problem.
