Website Q & A



Q: I posted an ad, why don't I see it?
A:
There are several reasons possible; Your ad broke the website rules mosty likely. Friendship ads only, ad can not be in all CAPS, ad posted in wrong age group, ad said something not appropriate for my site, you may be under the age requirement of 18, posted a mailing address or phone number, didn't give a valid e-mail address, no spamming, complicated to read (i.e. mixed text in caps and not), or maybe you advertised something on your ad.

Q: Why aren't kids allowed here anymore?
A:
This was very hard for me to do as at least 1/2 of my guests are under the age of 18. I recently found out about certain child protection laws I hadn't known about and was not complying with. This is for the safety and well-being of everyone. Also there are inmates posted at my site and kids don't need to be exposed to them, again for their safety.

Q: For whom is The Mailbox intended for?
A:
Anyone ages 18+ willing to follow the rules of my site and respect others wishes while looking for friendship only by postal penpalling (or e-pals in our new e-pals section, by popular demand).

Q: I want my ad removed, how do I do that?
A:
Email me at the_mailbox_2000@yahoo.com letting me know what age group book AND what page # your ad is located on, your name, and your email, and the reason you're leaving my site. I will delete your ad as soon as I can and let you know when I have done so.

Q: Can I link to my website in my ad?
A: Yes, as long as your site is family friendly.
