    NEW CHAT ROOM ** Please Read **

    By HawkesburyCouple

    NEW CHAT ROOM   We have now decided on the chat room that we feel will work best with our site and have now fully installed and configured the new chat room software. We are well aware that most people in general that once they have become used to and familiar with something do not welcome change or having to get used to something different. As we mentioned in previous posts and announcements on the site, the company whose chat room we previously used will be turning their chat service off on the 1 May 2017 so we needed to find something to replace it. The previous chat room was hosted with us paying a monthly fee to use it while with the new chat room we purchased and own the software.   The new chat room has a great many more features than the basic text only chat room we previously used.  It is integrated into the site and references the sites database which means that once you have signed into WSS there is no secondary sign in needed for the chat room and your Display name as it appears on WSS will be displayed in the chat room.  There may still be one or two minor things we need to configure a bit differently but overall as far as we can see it is all working very well.   We will list just some of the main features here but we are sure you will discover the others as you use the new software,   CONTACTS – Displays a list of everyone signed into chat. Click on which ever user you want to chat one on one with.  Apart from just one on one you can also invite others for a private group chat.   GROUPS – Displays a list of both permanent and user created rooms.  Click on the room or GROUP you wish to join.  You can have as many rooms open simultaneously as you wish.   CHAT – Chat privately one on one by clicking on the CONTACTS tab and clicking on who you want to chat with or click on GROUPS tab then click on the room or group you want to chat in such as the Site Room which is the main room for the site. To see who is in any of the GROUP ROOMS click on the room to open it then click on the arrow “>”to the right of the room name. You will see a number of options listed one of which is “VIEW USERS”.   CREATE YOU OWN ROOM – Everyone can now create their own rooms which they can set to PUBLIC where anyone can join the room and chat or INVITATION ONLY where only those you invite can join for private group chats or share video streams or files.   VIDEO & VOICE – Has the option for voice and video whether one on one or to broadcast to all in any of the rooms.   STICKERS – The new chat room now also has stickers that you can use in addition to smileys.   SHARE FILES – You can send files directly to other members.   SHARE YOUR SCREEN – You can now share your screen with other members.                                              LIVE SUPPORT – We have added a Live Support room so that anytime we are online as an option to messaging, anytime we are online you can talk to us in real time about your problem.  Should you have any problems at all anyone can always call us at any reasonable time on 0488 765 531   There are other features but we are sure you will work them out without too much trouble as you become familiar with the new chat software.   We hope you all enjoy the new chat room and the features it has.  Once you become familiar with it we are sure you will find it a big improvement over the previous more basic text only chat room.

    CHAT ROOM FURTHER UPDATE

    By HawkesburyCouple

    FURTHER UPDATE TO NEW CHAT ROOM   **Please Read**  We have been checking the various features of the NEW CHAT ROOM in addition to just chatting using a Windows desktop PC (Win 8.1)– Windows Laptop (Win 10) – iPhone – iPad and Samsung Tablet.  We have chatted both one to one and in the WSS Room with other members including those using an android mobile device and we can find no problem with the way it is all working nor can we find anything that would prevent anyone from using the new chat software from using it to chat.   We have also checked the video/audio function chatting with each other HawkesburyGirl using the laptop and HawkesburyCouple using the desktop and it worked without problem. We have also tried the video when chatting one to one with another site member as well as in the WSS Room and again it worked without problem.  When opening the video chat a separate window will open displaying the video feed. This video feed window can be resized from a very small window that you can place out of the way in a corner of your screen to full page or anything in between (see screenshots video-1 and video-2). On the bottom of the video window you have the options of END VIDEO CALL  - TURN OFF VIDEO – TURN OFF MIC.  When another joins the video call the main part of the video window will show their feed while your own feed will be shown in a small window in the bottom right corner (see screenshot video-3).      We appreciate that most people in general do not readily accept change once they have become accustomed to something being a certain way. We have no option but to move to new software, as previously stated the company who provide our current MEMBERS CHAT ROOM will be PERMANENTLY TURNING OFF THEIR CHAT SERVERS on the 1 May 2017.  To try and ease some of the resentment of moving to new chat software with a whole new look we have set the new chat room up so that it can be used in a variety of ways so hopefully most of you should be comfortable with either one version or another.  Regardless of which version you prefer to use, each has all the same options and functionality.  Within the next 3 to 6 weeks we should also have a WSS Chat app for both Android and IOS mobile devices. The app will enable you to chat directly with other members, share video/audio – etc via your mobile device.  You will also be able to invite others to chat with you via SMS.  We will also have a similar Desktop app for Windows and MAC. As mentioned previously the new chat room has a great many features that we did not have with the Members Chat Room which we hope you will all enjoy once you get used to the new chat software.  Some of the new features available are Video and Voice chats which can be broadcast to all in a room or group or one to one – Everyone will be able to create their own rooms and should they wish restrict access to only those they invite – share files – share screens and more.  The best way to get a feel for the new software is to have a play with it. Apple users wishing to use the video and voice service option of the new chat room, there is no support of webRTC to date for audio/video calls via the internet using the Apple Safari browser.  There is however a work around which you can find on the SITE BLOG.  We have not as yet tried using another browser such as Chrome on an Apple device so have no idea whether that will work or not.  Either way we hope the app is available soon so there will then no longer be a problem for those wishing to use the video option.

    INVALID EMAIL ADDRESSES - NON ACTIVE MEMBERS

    By Admin

    CAN YOU ALL PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR PROFILE HAS A VALID AND CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS   We are in the process of working our way through the entire member database checking email addresses to ensure that all email addresses are current, valid and working, IE: not out of date, no longer valid or FAKE. We hope to have this completed within the next couple of weeks. Anyone whose email address BOUNCES - IS UNDELIVERABLE - UNKNOWN will be moved to the STANDARD MEMBER Group so CAN YOU ALL PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR PROFILE HAS A VALID AND CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS.  This check of email addresses will not be a one time thing either.  We will be periodically checking and moving those who email addresses for any reason bounce will be moved to the STANDARD MEMBERS Group.     Apart from going a long way to keeping FAKES and SPAMMERS from the site what it will do for is that if you have Email Notifications ENABLED in your profile settings, anytime another members posts to your profile or you are sent a Private Message or get a reply to a Private Message you will be sure of receiving the email notification. We also plan to re-commence bulk emailing a monthly Newsletter with reminders of upcoming WSS Events. If you have OPTED-IN by having this option turned on in your Profile Settings as with the notifications it will ensure that the email reaches its destination. Should you NOT WISH to receive any notifications or bulk emails from us you can OPT-OUT at any time by turning off the various options in your profile settings.   NON ACTIVE MEMBERS.   We have been and will continue to check for NO ACTIVE MEMBERS, being those who have not SIGNED IN for 2 years or more. We have created a new member group called STANDARD MEMBERS. The Standard Member group as far as privileges and access goes is similar to the Bronze Member group but with restrictions on the number of posts/comments and PM's that can be sent in a 24hr period.  In addition to Non Active members anyone who we find has an email addresses that bounces when check will also be placed into this group.   SHOULD YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE STANDARD MEMBERS group and would like to be upgraded back to BRONZE or the group they were previously in, once you have updated the email address in your profile settings or have again become an active member, if you contact us via the CONTACT US link or PM Admin, in the case of a member again becoming active on the site we will upgrade you or in the case of an invalid email address,  after checking that your email address is not bouncing you will also be upgraded.

    ** CHAT ROOM - All Please Read **

    By HawkesburyCouple

    The company with who we have our MEMBERS CHAT ROOM will be discontinuing their Chat Rooms on the 1 May 2017.  Between now and the 1 May we will be looking at various alternatives. We will be considering what each will cost and for the cost what each has to offer and how well it will integrate with the forums software we use.  Whichever one we choose we will also be making sure that it can be configured to work with our database to link with the user accounts so that no secondary sign in is required for the chat room.  To this end we may need to turn our present chat room off from time to time but it should not be for any longer than a day if we do while we check out new chat software. If we do turn the current chat room off for a day from time to time we will post a notification so that everyone is aware.  Keep in mind that at any time the Members Chat room is turned off there is always the LOBBY that everyone can use.    We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause but it is better than getting to 1 May and having nothing to replace the present chat room with.  Due to the cost of purchasing new chat software we have discontinued the Lobby live video and voice streaming.  As we fund everything out of our own pocket and with the purchase of new chat software we will not be renewing our ParaChat service (The Lobby) when it expires in January 2018 but it will continue as it always has until the contract expiration date in 12 month’s time.

    SITE AND MEMBER PROFILE UPGRADES.

    By HawkesburyCouple

    We have recently installed a couple of software updates.  You won’t see much of a change in the way the site appears but there were a number of security updates and other updates which will make the site operate a little more smoothly and hopefully a little quicker.  There were also a few user features added as well such as the Leader board -  Popular Contributors - Popular Now.  After having a look at the member profiles we also decided to make a few changes there as well.  We have added some additional fields which we hope will give you a better insight into person or couple you are looking at and what it is they are looking for.  We have made the additional fields below compulsory when registering with the prompt that if you would prefer not to say to just enter “PLEASE ASK ME”.    The fields we have added to the Member Profiles are:-           Turn Ons           Turn Offs                Wildest Fantasy           Favourite Position(s)           Favourite Place(s) For Sex Turn Ons and Turn Offs appear on the side bar while Wildest Fantasy, Favourite Position(s) and Favourite Places For Sex appear in the tabbed area of your profile where the About Me – Albums – Blog Tabs are. We many change it around a little later on depending on how it goes.   We have completed these fields for our profile if you would like to see how they appear. View HawkesburyCouple’s Profile.   CAN YOU ALL PLEASE SIGN INTO YOUR PROFILE AND UPDATE IT AS NECESSARY even if only to put “PLEASE ASK ME” in each field. We are very much looking forward to reading what each of you add to your profile and once again we would both like to WISH EACH ONE OF YOU AND YOURS A VERY MERRY AND SAFE CHRISTMAS and thank you for your support over the past year.             Our Kindest Regards Michael and Debbie

WHAT HAS BEEN KEEPING US BUSY OF LATE

We recently had a look at our blog and noticed that it has been a little while since we have posted anything so thought it was about time to update it again.   We have been fairly busy of late.  We have been backwards and forwards down to Tassie with family things a fair bit as well as travelling all over the place up and down the coast looking at boats whenever we had some free time. We also purchased a new caravan earlier in the year which we mentioned in another post and have been getting away in that for the weekend when we have had nothing else taking our time.  Our most recent weekend away was to Ettalong where we were able to catch up with a friend who lives on the Central Coast which made for a very enjoyable weekend.   We have also purchased 2 boats and in the process of selling the yellow and white boat that is in a number of our photos.  We purchased a Quintrex 530 bow rider which is a considerable down size from “Y-Not”.  We wanted something that wasn’t too big or heavy that Deb would be comfortable towing so that when we go somewhere for a weekend in the van that is near the water we also have the boat with us.  It is also not too heavy or big for one person to launch and retrieve on their own while still having the seating and comfort for a social day out.  The other boat “Good Times Ahead” is a 33ft Sea Ray twin shaft cruiser.  It is 6 berth with a queen bed + double bed + a lounge that converts into another double bed. It has an on-board generator and hot water service so there is a hot shower and a full galley with microwave, stove and fridge.  We had it on a casual mooring while we organised and had our own mooring put down at Tascott near Woy Woy on the Central Coast where it is now moored.   Even though we have not had it that long we have had some great weekends on it finding it very comfortable with lots of room to overnight on = lots of room to play with friends.  During the coming warmer months we are very much looking forward to having some company we can take with us who we can spend the days and nights naked and playing with out on the water.     This year is the first since 2006 that we have not organised meet and greets just about every month.  With everything that we have had taking our time this year, not just the caravan and boat, while they have taken many of our weekends there have been family commitments that have also taken a lot our time and with our son doing year 12 this year and hoping for Sydney University entry, we stepped back hoping and expecting that someone else might step up and organise something from time to time and depending on where it was and what else we had on at the time come along, but sadly that has not been the case. Instead it has been more some members making comments criticising us complaining that we were not organising meets for them to go to rather than just using the site to do it themselves.   Hopefully in the coming months we will have a bit more free time allowing us to organise Meet and Greets as well as Play Nights.  As far as the Play Nights go, as we posted previously, we are considering including some select males but that will mostly depend on what the couples and ladies concerned want and are comfortable with.  We will most likely put a poll up in the near future and work it out there.   With everything that we have had on we have not really had much time for playing lately either but have managed to catch up with a few of our friends.  With hopefully having a little more free time from here on we are looking forward to having more time to play making up for lost time and as we say above combining some of our playtime's and getting to know new friends with weekends on the boat.  We are also looking forward to getting away to some of the regional areas of NSW and maybe interstate if we can in the van and combining that with getting to know and having some fun with new playmates.                                                                                                           gta-3.MOV   gta-1.MOV   gta-2.MOV

BRONZE MEMBER PERMISSION SETTINGS

BRONZE MEMBERS   We were just this afternoon alerted to a problem by a Bronze Member of not being able to view various posts in the Forums.   Last night we applied a security and version upgrade to the Forum Software.  For some reason following the upgrade not all the permissions were correctly re-set.  This problem only occurred within the Bronze Member group with none of the other groups being affected.  If you are a BRONZE MEMBER and experienced a similar problem during the day today that is the reason why.   We have re-set the permissions for the BRONZE member group so this problem should now be fixed.  We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused any of you.

CHAT ROOM UPDATE *Please Read*

While we work at sorting out some issues with the new chat room we have re-installed the previous chat room we had, MEMBERS CHAT which is one of the chat options that can be found under the CHAT TAB.  Please also keep in mind that there is also the LOBBY CHAT ROOM that can also always be used.    APPLE USERS PLEASE TAKE NOTE Those apple users wishing to use the video and voice service option of the new chat room,  there is no support of webRTC to date for audio/video calls via the internet using the Apple Safari browser. This problem can be remedied by using the temasys plugin. PLEASE REFER TO THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE. https://confluence.temasys.com.sg/display/TWPP/WebRTC+Plugins    The old MEMBERS CHAT is only back on the site temporarily while we get the new chat room sorted and can not be put back on indefinitely. The company who provide this chat service will be discontinuing their chat service permanently on 1 May 2017 and concentrating their efforts on other services they provide. Between now and when they turn off their chat service on 1/5/17 while the chat server will continue to operate they will not be putting in the time to maintain it as they have previously.

ANOTHER UPDATE.FROM US

We are slowly coming to realise that we are not as young as we would like to think we are. Each time we go to the ski park on the river (Dargle) it seems to be more like hard work setting everything up than we remember it being with the knees and back not being what they used to be. Then it is the same when it is time to pack up and it seems to take us longer to pack up each time, so we have decided to move away from the camping at the ski park and go in another direction.  For now at least and while we still have this boat we will still have the weekends at the ski park only without all the setting up and packing up with the tents.   Our first choice was to sell the boat we have now and buy a second hand, recent model 32 – 36ft cruiser (Bayliner – Sun Runner – Maxum or similar) with hot and cold showers - loo and full galley with microwave and preferably twin diesel shaft drive which we would keep on a swing mooring at Brooklyn.   We also like the idea of not having to have the expense of a diesel 4wd capable of towing a minimum of 3.5ton plus rather than having to tow the boat to wherever we want to use it, just driving to Brooklyn and getting on the boat, starting it and off we go to where ever we want when we want and from time to time taking friends with us and overnight on the boat for a night or even a week it we wanted.  Much like a really big caravan on the water and instead of camping at the ski park head up to Port Stephens or somewhere for a weekend or whatever on the boat.   We had a couple of boats we were looking at and really keen on. We were on the verge of buying the one we both really liked which had an oversize queen bed in the forward area, large double in the stern plus 2 X single berths with a large sun lounge on the upper deck the size of a large queen bed.  We were also looking for a cheap second hand van for just the 2 of us and while looking at one we ended up browsing through a couple of the new vans while we were there.  There was a Franklin which had only just been delivered to the yard from the manufacturer over the Christmas break that caught our attention.  The more we looked the more we liked it.  It is set up with solar and deep cycle batteries and has everything we wanted, full size stove with oven, double door large fridge/freezer rather than the usual small caravan fridge, microwave, large shower with hot and cold water, loo, washing machine, air con, TV, roll out awning, full canvas annex, etc etc.   We had arranged to go up to Lake Macquarie the next day to decide yes or no on the boat we were looking at and arrange settlement but instead we ended up shaking hands and doing a deal there and then on the van.  We pick it up and bring it home on Sat 21 – Jan and we are biting at the bit to get it home. We are planning our first weekend away in it the first weekend in Feb up to Patonga on the Central Coast which we are very much looking forward to.  We will also be taking the smaller boat with us so we can also enjoy some fishing. We have also talked about that now with the van it would be nice to combine a weekend away staying in the local Caravan Park with meeting someone we may be talking to at the time.   We will still be selling the boat we have now and getting a larger boat we keep on a mooring that we can overnight on with weekends away on the water but it won’t happen until later in the year due to buying the van which was a spur of the moment thing, not that we have any regrets at all.   PLAY and DRINKS MEETS. Once things have settled down here a little as we were all over the place for a while both up and down the coast looking at boats we will sort some play meet dates and drinks nights meets and get them posted.  With the play meets, as posted elsewhere on the site we are considering inviting a few selected males provided the couples and ladies would like that.   With us now having the van we have also been talking about having some of the meet and greets in regional areas such as Nowra – Orange – Coffs Harbour or where ever, staying in the local caravan park and making a weekend of it.

SITE AND MEMBER PROFILE UPGRADES.

We have recently installed a couple of software updates.  You won’t see much of a change in the way the site appears but there were a number of security updates and other updates which will make the site operate a little more smoothly and hopefully a little quicker.  There were also a few user features added as well such as the Leader board -  Popular Contributors - Popular Now.  After having a look at the member profiles we also decided to make a few changes there as well.  We have added some additional fields which we hope will give you a better insight into person or couple you are looking at and what it is they are looking for.  We have made the additional fields below compulsory when registering with the prompt that if you would prefer not to say to just enter “PLEASE ASK ME”.    The fields we have added to the Member Profiles are:-           Turn Ons           Turn Offs                Wildest Fantasy           Favourite Position(s)           Favourite Place(s) For Sex Turn Ons and Turn Offs appear on the side bar while Wildest Fantasy, Favourite Position(s) and Favourite Places For Sex appear in the tabbed area of your profile where the About Me – Albums – Blog Tabs are. We many change it around a little later on depending on how it goes.   We have completed these fields for our profile if you would like to see how they appear. View HawkesburyCouple’s Profile.   CAN YOU ALL PLEASE SIGN INTO YOUR PROFILE AND UPDATE IT AS NECESSARY even if only to put “PLEASE ASK ME” in each field. We are very much looking forward to reading what each of you add to your profile and once again we would both like to WISH EACH ONE OF YOU AND YOURS A VERY MERRY AND SAFE CHRISTMAS and thank you for your support over the past year.             Our Kindest Regards Michael and Debbie

2017 MEET and GREETS

Our social Meet and Greets are the ideal way for everyone to meet other WSS Members in a social zero pressure environment. If there is someone whose profile you like who you would like to meet, why not suggest to them to come along to the next meet where you can both chat and get some idea of each other.   We can all appreciate that people can differ from the opinion we get from their profile so should that be the unfortunate situation there will be others there to talk to and at the VERY LEAST it will be an enjoyable night out which has the real likelihood of leading to much more. Also worth considering particularly for the ladies, is that it is a safe and secure way to meet people being a public place with other people about. In the case of any of the meets we host, if you have any reason at all to feel uncomfortable we will never be far away.  We will soon be posting next year’s Meet & Greets and looking forward to meeting and catching up with as many of you as can make it along during the course of 2017.   We are looking at making some changes for the coming the year.  One of the changes we are considering is rather than all the Meet and Greets being Saturday evenings to have a Saturday lunch meet every other month with each of the lunch meets being followed that evening with a Play Meet.  With getting back into the warmer weather we have also been talking about getting back to a Sunday BYO BBQ some of which could be at the Ski Park we frequent at Lower Portland on the Hawkesbury near Windsor (See some of our camping photos).  We would probably do these on the same weekend we would normally have the lunch meets with the Play Meets being on a separate weekend. ANYONE is most welcome and ENCOURAGED to use the site to organise any kind of meet they wish. Whether for a particular age group - singles only – couples only, something purely social or something of a more adult nature it is all good. The ONLY thing we would ask is not to organise your meet for the same day plus same or neighbouring suburb resulting in the meets competing with each other.  Same day but some distance away is fine.

PLAY MEETS - Update

To keep everyone who is interested up to date with what is happening in regard to the PLAY MEETS.  Starting next year, which is not far off, we will definitely be going ahead with the play meets that we mention in various posts about the site and posting them on the Calendar.  With the exception of the meets which will be a Sunday BBQ, the play meets will be the same evening as the Saturday lunch meets.  We will have them either at the Novotel at Rooty Hill where we will book one of the larger double queen rooms or at Vineyard. Depending on numbers we will book either a Deluxe Cabin or one of the larger Spa Villas.  The Vineyard Hotel is just down the road for the meet and greet earlier and has an excellent Bistro.  If we go to the Novotel, we can have the lunch time meet and greet at the RSL which adjoins the Novotel where we have had many meet and greets and has a fantastic bistro as well as other fast food outlets.   The number of additional males invited will be determined by the number of couples and ladies attending with 1 additional male per couple or female. We will select which males are invited from the list of those who have expressed their interest via the posts and polls already posted.   COST We will not make anything from these meets.  With the exception of our share we only wish to cover our out of pocket expenses so have considered various options from the additional males sharing the cost of the room/cabin between them to everyone, couples and singles sharing the cost.  As these kinds of meets are a very different thing for couples as they are for the males we have decided upon FEMALES = $0.oo – COUPLES = $30.oo – MALES = $60.oo.  Using these prices whether it is a smaller group with us booking one of the smaller cheaper cabins or a larger group with us booking one of the larger more expensive cabins the contribution will almost exactly cover the cost of the venue.

Keeping Up To Date

KEEPING UP TO DATE   Campbelltown Meet & Greet We would like to thank everyone who made the effort to get along to the Campbelltown Drinks night on Saturday evening. We had planned on being there but unfortunately we had something come up which prevented us being there.  After chatting with a couple who were there, going by what they say it was a really good turn out with everyone very much enjoying the night.     The next Drinks night is in a couple of weeks time at Windsor.  We appreciate that 2 drinks nights in the same month might be too much for some and not something we usually do, but those who can make it to Windsor on the 29th, we will be looking forward to catching up.     WEBCAM UPDATE
Due to the VERY positive response we have had in regard to adding webcams to WSS we will be going ahead with it.  We plan on doing it either sometime this month or early next month. As we will be paying an additional fee per cam per month in addition to what we pay for the chat room we will initially add 7 or 8 cams and see how much use they get and go from there.     The Cams will be added to the existing LOBBY CHAT room.  For those who wish to broadcast it will be on a first in first served basis. Should all the cams be in use and you wish to broadcast you will have to wait until one becomes vacant.   We will let everyone know as soon as we have set it up and the service is active.   WE HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY USING THE CAMS AND THAT THEY ADD TO YOUR ENJOYMENT HERE ON WSS     ALL WELCOME WSS PLAY NIGHTS We have created a POLL SPECIFICALLY FOR THE COUPLES & LADIES .  We would like to get an idea of how many Ladies and Couples would be interested in attending WSS Play Meets.  We are also interested in hearing your opinions about these proposed Play Nights as well as certain aspects of these nights.   We have had a poll up to get an idea of how many of you would be interested in us organising WSS Play Nights that would be open to ALL WSS MEMBERS. As expected we have had a very strong positive response mainly from MALE Members.  Before we go ahead and start spending money and booking venues we would like an indication of how many couples and ladies would be keen for these Play Nights.  Depending upon the response we get from the COUPLES and LADIES on the site we will set dates, book a venue and make it happen.   For more information regarding the nights themselves and contributing towards the cost of the night, if you have not already seen it we have posted a BLOG POST

ALL WELCOME PLAY MEETS

WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN BEING PART OF A PLAY MEET? OPEN TO COUPLES & SINGLES - Male & Female We have been talking about organising WSS Play Meets in addition to the Couples Play night that we have each month. Before we go ahead and start setting dates and booking a venue we would like some feedback from those who would be interested.  What we are looking at doing is booking a venue with the cost of the venue being shared by those involved. We are looking at covering costs only and making these nights a FUN night for all.  Any WSS site member will be welcome to attend, couple or single, male or female.  What we have discussed as numbers will be limited, is that first preference will go to couples and females.  Then from the list of males who have replied, we will invite 1 male per couple or single female so that we do not end up with a situation of a room full of males with just a few couples or ladies.  THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE MAIN RULE - NO means NO – No argument. There will NEVER be any obligation for ANYONE to play with anyone else. Just because you are there does NOT automatically mean that anyone else who is there is required to play with you.  In other words you DO NOT just start touching or doing whatever with someone unless it has been made clear to you that they wish to play with you.  If you want to play with a particular person but not another, that is fine and NO will ALWAYS be politely accepted.  ANYONE not abiding by this will be asked to leave and may also find themselves permanently banned from the site.  Pushy or overbearing people will not be tolerated.   COVERING COSTS ALL your opinions in regard to how the cost of the room or cabin should be divided.   OPTION -1 Each member pays an equal share which means the share per couple will be the same as that of singles as the share will be per member. The cost per member should be $30.oo or less.   OPTION -2 Same as option -1 where the cost is shared by member and not the number of persons resulting in couples and singles each paying the same share only with the exception that all LADIES are FREE.   OPTION -3 As single males are there for themselves only and not bringing a partner to the event and if it were not for the couples and ladies attending they would only have each other to play with, so the cost of the venue be shared equally by the single males attending.  The cost in this case should be no more than $50.oo and probably less.  So that we do not end up out of pocket by having to cover the share of people who say they will be attending and then don't show up we will be asking for those attending to pay their share of the cost prior to the night.  Once each person or couple has confirmed they will be attending we will send each an online invoice for their share of the cost of the cabin or room.  A secure online payment will be able to be made in a variety of ways via Credit or Debit Card  - PayPal or credit or debit card via PayPal as a PayPal guest (no need to be a member of PayPal) or Direct Deposit.   The address, cabin or room number and further details will then be provided to you once payment has been completed.   WHAT DO  YOU THINK?? & WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED??

WEBCAM CHAT ROOM – Yes or No.

We are always looking at ways we can improve and make the site more entertaining and FUN for everyone.  One of the things we have been considering adding a Web Cam chat room to the site.  The Webcam room will be in addition to the current Members Chat room and The Lobby. We would upgrade our level of service for The Lobby so that the Lobby would become our Webcam room.  We will then set up a separate room like the Lobby that guests are welcome to use so that should you ever want to chat with someone who is not a WSS member and you are not yet comfortable giving them your email or skype details you will have a place you can chat by giving them the link to the Guest Chat Room.  Before we go ahead with the expense of setting up and then maintaining a Webcam room we would like to get some idea of how much it is likely to be used.  It we have a good indication that it will get plenty of use we will happily go ahead with it, however if it is likely to get little use with the majority preferring not to use a webcam room we don’t see much point it spending the money to set it up.  So YES or NO.  Would you like to see a webcam room added to WSS and if so would you use it?

WSS July Drinks Night

Once again we would like to thank EVERYONE who made it along to last Saturday nights get together at Blacktown making it the success it was.  We both very much enjoyed the night and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did and that we see you at more meet and greets.  When the weather warms up again we will have to organise a few BBQ’s in addition to the drinks nights.  We had a great night. We didn’t get to spend as much time as we would have liked chatting with some of the newer members who we had not previously met but we are looking forward to catching up at future meets.  Our very sincere THANKS to both all the new members as well as the not so new for making it a very enjoyable evening.   SEE YOU ALL AT THE NEXT ONE
