There is no WhatsApp group formally associated with Singapore Expats. When you use "Singapore Expats" you confuse people by using the name of this website on a chat group that has no formal affiliation.

If you think you'd like to set one up, contact the board admin at admin@singaporeexpats.com

Yeah, bgd, I reckon I am. Heck, I doubt if you even know what a rotary dial phone is. Or a party line. Or for that matter 28.8 :tongue: :devil:

28.8? I can remember when 14.4 was fast, it replaced my 2.4.

I remember visiting a friend in the country and the phone number she gave me was something like 139U. The phone box had the rotary dial phone without the rotary dial. Bit of a surprise for a city boy but I figured it out - I'd seen Green Acres :wink: . This was early 80s.

Understand Admins...

But by joining WA they know they are already giving away their contact no. So this is for the members who are ok with that. Members who wish to be anonymous can still continue to use the other avenues that are already available for us.

Kindly consider opening this up. We can add these disclaimers explicitely and see for some time... if the adoption is poor then we can formally close it as well.

Pls let me know what you feel on this.

Best Regards,
Jason

Hi Admins,

I would like to open up a whatsapp group for expats to collaborate better.



There were few forums on the same topic, so I hoped there was one and was trying to reach them via PM. But there werent any responses.



So I went ahead to set up one and published the link in our group.



I understand that it might have misled people. My whatsapp contact no is +65 8314 7540. If someone from your admin team ping me there. I will be more than happy to add you and grant the admin access. Then you could remove my admin rights and govern it as you deemfit.



Best Regards,
