Costa Living - Spain forum Home 
Costa Living Forum
This forum was started to help people who want to move to Spain or already live here. It was originally an open forum, but as time passed there had been issues with this system. So now it is a closed forum, mostly viewable for 'members only'.
Except forums marked VIEWABLE.
We welcome any newcomers to join 'free'. Our rules are simple but strictly enforced. This is a NO HOSTILITY ZONE for people who wish to share or gain knowledge of Spain. (That said, we do have members from around the world as well here) Meet & make new friends. Share experiences. Chat in our chat room. Generally join in with the community here. We are not interested in large membership numbers, just a helpful active community

PM's (PRIVATE MESSAGES)


The PM facility is a privilege we grant to people who are established active users, ie who have been frequent contributors to the forum for a reasonable length of time. (This also safeguards our members from people who sign up just to SPAM other members using the PM facility. For this reason, we do not disclose the criteria for which the granting of the PM facility is based.)

PMs are for private and personal messages that you don't want others to see and that others would have no interest in anyway.

Please avoid using PMs unless it really is something private and personal that doesn't belong on the forum.

Above all, please don't PM Site Admins, moderators or anyone else to ask a general question, eg about property or how to go about planning your move etc etc. The idea of this forum is to share information that's likely to be of use to other users. So questions of this kind belong on the forum.

Also, please don't PM Site Admins/Mods with a "what is..."  "how do I..." question. Check the FAQ first, and if it isn't answered there, then post there and ask your question.
Someone may be able to help.

Anyone found advertising themselves or soliciting via PMs will have PM usage removed and may be banned permanently.

Pictures / Photo's
