On the beginning of a New Year we would like to give you some information about "mymerhaba" community. We are online since March 2003 and our community expands everyday. We have almost 1500 registered members as of the end of 2003 and the number of daily unique visits is above 1500.

· Most of our members are US citizens. British; German, French, Canadian and Australian members follow. Our Turkish members are quite active as hosts.

· Two thirds of our members reside in Turkey, mostly in Istanbul followed by Ankara and Izmir. We have also members from Bursa, Muğla, Antalya and Marmaris,

· The number of male and female users is almost equal. There are only 50 more female members than male members.

· Most of our members are employed in Turkey. After that come the self-employed, diplomatic staff and students.

· The main age range is between 25 and 35. The age group following that consists of members between the ages 35 and 44, and then comes the 45-54 group.

· The education level of "mymerhaba" members is quite high. Most of them have bachelor's or master's degrees.

We enrich the content of "mymerhaba" everyday with your feedback and we offer more than 3000 pages to our visitors.

We have had great pleasure in having our members participate in the "get-together-meetings". Those were exciting events. Well, you set foot on the site and you don't know anybody and read the names from nametags pinned to collars… The most beautiful scene was the farewell: a group composed of people coming to Turkey from several foreign countries for various reasons with only one common point - that is, living in Turkey - wishing to meet again as soon as possible. Naturally the friendships continue after the get-togethers and enjoy Istanbul. This subject is mostly a paparazzi subject therefore we'll skip it! Unfortunately we could not manage to meet our members residing in Ankara last year. However, it is among the top items of our agenda.

"mymerhaba" hopes to reach you with more services in 2004 and is trying hard to make the interactive sections more user-friendly. We thank our members for their contribution to our site with their articles and interviews and hope their contributions continue to increase.

Sub-interest groups on "mymerhaba", such as golf or bridge players or nature lovers, will be created along with the expansion of our community. We are waiting for our members' leadership on this subject.

Our site statistics show us that most of our members have reached us via search engines. Then comes the group reaching us through friends and advertisement. The most valuable way of recognition for us is our members' recommending "mymerhaba" to their friends. Our members always please us in this area and we hope your support continues.

We hope the "mymerhaba" community fellows enjoy more of this beautiful country during their time here. Stay in touch and give us your feedback... Your input will find its place in the pages of "mymerhaba".

Wishing you and your loved ones all the best in 2004,

The mymerhaba team

Hello i am a Turkish expat living in Moscow. there is a huge expat community here and a very professional website www.expat.ru i just checked your web site, it looks great but i guess if you make the forum pages more active, it would be more helpful. in moscow every expat posts any question and the forum is so active that many replies comes in seconds. just take a look at the link above and you´ll see what i mean... thanks

Hello to all of the team,i live in england, but have recently bought a villa in Belek, Antalya.I am eagerly looking to spending lots of time in Turkey this summer. I was wondering if you have ever covered any areas of the Antalya region in particular Belek, as i have not yet come across any? Are there any expats out there who live either in Belek or Kadriye. would love to know if there are. Thank you.

Happy New Year to all. I just joined the Mymerhaba last Nov.03 and have been very pleased with the useful info readily available on site. I was wondering if there will be more get togethers i.e. happy hours or meze nights.. planned for the year? Is there a directory of members wherein we can exchange contact details or how does this work? Congratulations on the great work you are all doing.
