More of: pretty much anything. I like hearing different POVs and learning about things from what others ask about. :)

Less of: unnecessary hateful comments. It’s not fun reading a thread and seeing it turn into a passive aggressive fight. :(

I’d like to hear from more new genuine people, it would be nice to hear from people who have paid a profile here or paid for someone. Agree with opally about the negative but unfortunately your always gonna have someone that wants the attention or can only express themselves through negativity it happends everyday in many situations.

The contents of the forum are fine by me. I just wish that we would get back a properly functioning forum without spam and with all the features that we used to have (pm, mark forums read from the main page, etc)

Less stupid arguments about crap please....

Yes I agree...arguements should lessen and would if opinions were respected..to each their own..
I'd like to see more genuine PENPALS on here...as in those of us who DO actually write to someone that we found on here...not a brother or whatever....and also not have the entire forums as personal blogs/ claiming ownership of said forums..

I’d also like to see more honest people here so when people actually PAY for a loved one to be here they don’t have to see people make up story’s about who they are and made up relationships just to bring penpals down or prisoners, oh if you take offence to this as no names you know I’ve got your number and I know exactly who you are :-)

I’d like to see less spam on here. But I’d also like to see less arguments too haha and more stories of peoples’ experiences and whatnot. I think this forum is a wonderful place and I do think it’s a good place to find support and others who are all going through similar things with this whole pen pal experience :)

@Annemarie nada on the photos yet. I’m starting to actually worry about him now, usually by now I would’ve heard something from him but nothing. I know he’s been going through somethings mentally because he’s been in solitary for so long, but I don’t know what to do? He doesn’t get JPay, I can’t call and letters take ages to get to him! Not sure how to reach out to him to make sure he’s doing okay :/

Less ppl complaining about being spammed after they decided voluntarily to send money

Less relationship/possesessiveness drama

Less ppl violating the points of service and other rules

An ignore button to aviod certain ppl and their comments

A PM function like we used to have

An info corner info point where no personal stuff is posted only "how to do" information

More newbies! I was a lurker on here for years and thought I didn't have anything to add - like I was in stuck in sponge mode. But hearing new voices and different perspectives is what it’s all about, I think.

Less (or zero, ideally) mudslinging. I think every point of view is valid, and folks can argue or disagree about things ‘til the cows come home, but there’s a civil and respectful way to do that without resorting to all the nonsense.

@Cleo..he's in Browning right? Have you not heard from him at all...Browning are meant to be getting jpay/tablets but I think round christmas, it's a slow process I can tell you. Mitch was meant to have got a tablet 2 weeks ago and we're still waiting..

Block button, no spam, a better system to search archived threads.

Talking about emails I emailed you @st4s using my real email as I figured that all emails can be deactivated or deleted or simply not used so I guess that makes all emails burners mmmmmmm :-) @northern if my dude gets the email and sents it on I have some information for you to look into could or could not be of some use.

I'll keep on the lookout for it @Been. Thanks

I agree that this forum needs a PM function. I would also like to see more open mindedness to the users here, their penpals/friends/family/significant others and their journeys that led them here. I don't usually venture outside of this forum so this might already exist, but it would be fun to have a football or American football predictions game. I might have to check out the Games forum lol.

I'd like to see less belittling and condescending behaviors.

Hey @Been, might want to double-check the address. There’s nothing from you in my inbox.

Also, this might just be me being ignorant, but is there a better way to get back to the forum after posting a reply? I find myself having to go back to the top menu, and go back thru the list of prison forums.

@lamorena..nope.no easy way..there used to be a PM function I tinink it was removed to stop people not using the open forum which I'd like to see not being public

@Anne Marie- Thanks for confirming. It would be useful to have a link that routes right back to the forum. 

Anne marie HH

@lamorena...or at least on our profiles..a " latest activity log" toggle so we could at least get back to stuff..don't you think? But wap rarely takes any notice of anything anyway..lol....

@Annemarie Yeah, he’s in Browning. I have considered it, but I’m too chicken to ask haha, I feel like if he wants to talk on the phone, maybe he should bring it up? Plus, he’s in solitary, can they get phone calls? Also I hate speaking on the phone lol, I’m way to used to texting that I feel so awkward thinking about it. But it would be nice to be able to check up on him now and again! I’ll wait to see if I get anything from him soon and if not, I’ll send a letter and just maybe drop hints? Idk haha, but thanks!!

Also that so sucks for Mitch! I swear, I’ve noticed how nothing runs on schedule and everyone seems to drag their feet taking their sweet time to do anything when it comes to inmates. Makes me so mad. I know another girl who’s got a pal in Browning, and she said that the delays with the tablets being rolled out might mean that Browning might not get theirs until mid 2020! I hope not, I’m so impatient lol. Hope Mitch gets his soon xx

Probably just a block button.

I don’t expect or ask the people who have no tact, call names, accuse others, try to control people or threads, insist they’re better because they do this or that differently, or get into people’s personal business to change, they’re going to fight over everything no matter what, but a block button so I didn’t have to hear them at all on here and focus more on the people who give useful advice would be nice.
