    Greetings and Welcome to the Beginnings of Month of Letters 2018. The site we use to connect with penpals is being maintained by the admins and moderators! Ask us any question here,  and we would love any positive suggestions our users have! The act of Letter Writing to people you connect with here, should be a smooth and secure process, streamlining your path to interacting, not just by letter, but by common topics and activity! Post anything here, within reason, and we are happy to give feedback or add your idea to the list!
    The Lettermo Team

    So excited to see LetterMo gearing up! Being inspired by other corresponders is my second favorite thing about LetterMo. I am not particularly web savvy when it comes to the big picture webmastering stuff, but if there is anything I can do to help, I am really good at following directions. 😀

      Hi Carrye! I certainly am the same and can dedicate time and motivation to keeping this place going for 2018. If you would like, i would make you a Moderator here in the Forums. Allowing you to keep watch and edit any spam posts or questionable material. No time is required, but a few trusted eyes there will help us! I am also familiarizing myself with the WP site functionality, security and plug ins (most are default) – Thank you!

    Thanks, Cooksterz. Appreciate the efforts to sustain LetterMo!
    Regarding site interaction: Direct messaging was very handy in the past, allowing participants to query one another.
    Spam suggestion: WordPress published this article on “The Best WordPress Anti-Spam Plug-ins for WordPress 2017” https://www.wpblog.com/anti-spam-plugins-for-wordpress/
    Finally, how about highlighting the admin team?
    Thanks again!

      Hello bardbooks! Yes that feature was handy. Problem recently occured where spam hacks got into it and alot of you recieved odd personal messages. I believe it was disabled, although im not sure if that was wordpress or a previous Site Editor. One of the things on my list for the week! Modding you, for the Forums as well, as you are active and a trusted eye for Forums. Let us all hope Good traffic will arrive, and we continue to motivate more folks to write letters!

    What about doing a swapping/exchanging thing here on the forum I know most pen pal sites do that sort of thing so it would be great if this site did it as well.

    Also please note this site is not for posting or sending spam messages so please don’t send this type of stuff there’s been a lot lately on here and it really needs to stop

     Hope my spelling was ok

      Hi Natalie. Yes the “swapping” ideas posts (within the Forum) have been shared and discussed in years before. Towels, socks, stationery and the like. We are soon opening the newly styled Forums all the way, which will include more categories for Talk, Discussion, and Letter Events. So be on the lookout in the next few days. Discussion, Intros will have their own spot for interaction! We have disabled the messaging and are currently dealing with spammers, while we work! Thank you!

    I miss the little status updates we were able to do.

    I’m glad Mary found some people to take over the reins. I don’t envy the task of spam deletion.

      Hi Mia! There are so many lil features that can be activated here. Th e issue is always WordPress Plugins – the ones that are free, are often BUGGY and unable to to be modified. We hope to get something operative soon. Was that you requesting group entry on FB? Im trying to keep a Group together there, with approved members… checking name on request: Mia Griffiths – if so ill approve immediately – Cooksterz

        It’s possible to see the status updates of all people you are friends with by choosing “friends” under the “Howdy [name]” profile header. Choose “friendships” and you are given a list of all your friends with their status listings.

    Hello there brave new Admins! I have a suggestion. Since we have “activity logging” on here, what do you think about removing participants that have not had any activity in the last 3 years? I went to the end pages and there are a ton of folks who don’t have bios and no activity in six years.

    Just a thought since we’re in clean-up mode.
    Makes it easier for us to find new friends too!

    NATALIE! That time has now arrived, in this late night hour! Check out the forums now. A few Mods and Admins will soon be placing posts within the 3 Categories we have this year. Updates are still happening! – Thank you!
