As most of you know, we got hacked. Over 1000 bogus accounts were created and thousands of SPAM posts created. While not "cured" we are close. That means the SPAM has been deleted and most bogus accounts have either been banned or deleted. I say most because there are still some out there that will be dealt with when a bogus post is made.

Security measures have been added but some bogus accounts were still being created. For now, the ability to create new accounts has been turned off. If you want an account, send an email message to staff@gt4us.com and include the following information:

  • email address
  • preferred login name
  • temporary password (you will need to change it when you log in)

We will set up your account and email you the information. Once you log in, besides changing your password, we encourage you to fill in your profile information.

Sorry for the inconvenience but that seems to be the way the world works right now.

Internations

Internations is an organization for expats who want to connect with other expats. They seem like a good place to make both social and business connections. In Guatemala, they have various face-to-face events (primarily in Guatemala City).

Let me contrast what they do vs. what we do on this site. They help facilitate person-to-person connections for expats. Thus, they make it easier for expats to integrate in a new country. What they are not has helped inspire this site.

Here we try to help you find "things". On the social site that can include a school, a club, whatever. But, the focus is much more about the "How-To" of living in Guatemala. A recent post is about how to pay your IUSI (property tax) on-line for real estate in Guatemala City. Finding products and services is another big area that we hope to address.

The site is young and small. It will require more participants to really be useful. Chip in. Email staff@gt4us.com to set up a login.

Note that we do not share your information with anyone nor sell anything. (While we currently have no advertising, some could be added in the future but, once again, we would not make your information available to advertisers.) It is up to you who you connect with.
