1. Add photos - each member can add a maximum of 5 photos per day, however these will not be displayed until approved by the moderating team (the photos are sent for approval automatically so you don't need to do anything).
2. Add your own personal blog to your 'My Page', however again these will not be displayed until approved by a moderator.
3. Send other members private messages - please note in order to do so, you must have made that person a friend - this can be done through their 'My Page'.
All we ask is that you treat each other with the respect they deserve .We want people to enjoy coming here and it will be closely monitored and moderated for the comfort and safety of all.
