    Want to leave the forums?

    Which, David, is why we encourage the members to familiarize themselves with the Forums' posting Guidelines. Saves a everyone lot of grief! Paul M. – Forums Moderator ==
  3. For very long term/permanent. 2 BR, 2 full baths. Furnished. Thanks in advance.

    Want to leave the forums?

    Even a "tangential reference" (in the eyes of some (one, actually)) can get you booted.

    The easiest way to quit this forum, is to praise the activity that is considered to be " not illegal, but not legal". Works every time.
  9. So, many people are getting rather complacent about going into San Jose on the day their plate prohibits them from doing so. Enforcement has been almost non-existent for quite a few months, until last week. There was a line of over 10 cars on Segunda Avendia, with every available Transito officer writing tickets. They couldn't get everyone, they were so busy. I tend to obey traffic laws, although at times I 'do it the Tico way'. Other times, I've just forgotten it's Tuesday, until I'm in the middle of San Jose. Also, never park in the yellow zones - you may get away with it for a long time, but, as another current thread indicates, eventually, your number comes up (and removed from your car).
  10. I haven't given up, Eleanor, I've just been really busy lately. I'm more than happy to discuss/share about the issues of the day here. Let's give it a go in another thread or two. I think what Carlos et al have been trying to do is really interesting, and important. Oh and I could give a rat's culo where to eat in Chepe, but that's just me.
  11. Well, I wrote a long and erudite answer (haha) to your reply but then decided "Why the hell am I bothering." and didn't post it. I've learned a lot of things from this forum over the years but if there is so little interest in discussions about "all things Costa Rican" or how things elsewhere in the world affect us in Costa Rica, then I'm out. I can take only so many, as you say, repetitive questions about how to acquire residency and where to live and how much does it cost to live. And where's a good place to eat in San Jose. 🙋‍♀️

    But there is a way for the Administrator or Moderator to cancel your membership in the forum, right?
  13. It's not lack of interest, just lack of time and energy at the moment. And yes, this forum probably needs to evolve a bit, but I think there may be a more fundamental problem. It seems to me that there are many N Americans that really don't want to know anything about Costa Rica other than how to get by. These folks mostly just want to talk to other folks like themselves. These conversations often turn into semi paranoid complaint fests that are beyond tedious, and generally end up violating the rules of the forums. The other large group are the generally well asimilated who speak Spanish, have Tico friends, and who don't care much any more about other gringos per se and their self inflicted problems. And then we have the newbies who come here for information, and some for "like minds", who can jump into either group, or give up and go back. The first group is tedious, at best. The second are all busy living their lives. So, only the newbies are generating any new posts, and these are often repetitive. The way forward is to get group 2 more active, but I'm not sure how you do that.
  14. Well, with the lack of interest in this forum in all things Costa Rican, I have to wonder just why I check here every day. No one has any interest in any of the 10 topics concerning Costa Rica that I posted? That's just unfortunate.
  15. Because at the time, Eleanor, it appeared that no messages were getting thru to the Forums and that none had been for about a week. And that, simply put, was the reason for that post: To hopefully atrract some posts to see whether any of them were getting thru. (Terry's did.) And that as the story goes is the News From Lake Wobe . . . . Cheers! Paul M. ==
  16. Paul, if you are "anxious to make a post" then why not start a discussion about some of the things swirling around Costa Rica and inside Costa Rica? 1. World Cup 2. Keylor Navas - Costa Rica team and Real Madrid 3. Situation in Nicaragua and how it affects Costa Rica 4. Is there more tourism this June? 5. Hurricane forecasts for 2018 and effect on Costa Rica 6. Costa Rica relationship with US 7. Costa Rican boy found alone in the Arizona desert 8. Will prices go up in Costa Rica now that so many trucks are stuck in Nicaragua? 9. What will happen with my gasoline-powered car now that Costa Rica is heading towards not using fossil fuels? 10. What do our forum members think is the biggest headline about Costa Rica in the past week? Come on, people. There's more to life than acquiring or renewing residency and questions about the Caja. 😁 Bonus question: Any good wildlife sightings this past week? (Yes, including snakes....)
  17. Too bad. You can't! The forums are like the Hotel California. You can check in but you can never leave. Now for all of you living in the USA and who have lost your sense of humor or are so goofy with political correctness etc: That was a JOKE!! Sort of. In the often unexplained world of programmers, those good folks failed to give you a way to leave the forums. We almost never get requests to leave but we do get questions how to stop the notifications. So... here is how! In order to remove all subscriptions, do the following once signed in as them. Account setting>notification settings - Uncheck the top 3 items This is the one people usually miss. Go to "manage followed content", select all items, and delete. That's it. You will never hear from us! TG
  18. My first post. To see if it goes through. MCL ==
  19. Your message got thru to on here & I can see it, Terry. Maybe they're all watching soccer right now with a grim determination. Paul M. ==
  20. I did also ..... with a single . and it disappeared. Was wondering if we were still able to post as it has been so quiet!?!?!?!?

    Forums Broken?

    Your Forum Master... that would be ME, may have broken these forums not allowing new posts for the past few days. This is a test post to see if I have fixed the prob. Thanks to T&VSmith for bringing this to my attention. Sorry for any inconvenience! TG

    Realestate law?

    I totally agree. You could get some answers here or some guesses or some experiences but a lawyer is the only one who can really answer your question.
  24. Tom and Marcia

    Realestate law?

    That's a good question for a lawyer. T

    Realestate law?

    Does any one know if there is a time limit on perusing fraud on a land transaction?
