Family Christmas Online™ Discussion Forum Application

The FamilyChristmasOnline.com™ Forums are a place for Christmas-lovers to discuss topics related to Christmas, including Christmas traditions, decorations, crafts, stories, and more.

This page allows you to subscribe to membership in the discussion forums. Please review the forums and decide if you want to belong to them, and if it's worth a dollar a month to belong. We have added that nominal fee because keeping our discussion forums free of the thousands of scammers, spammers, trolls, and other bad people who try to get into the forums every week is turning into a full-time job. Also, such evildoers almost never join forums that cost them money, so this will hopefully reduce the amount of time we spend "gatekeeping" every month, so we'll have more time to keep providing useful content.

Consider it the price you pay for having a safe, moderated place to discuss topics important to you with other likeminded people, knowing that rude behavior will not be tolerated. How many places like that can you find on the internet, really?

That said, we get a lot of questions through this form, so we have posted a brief "Frequently Asked Questions" list to address the most common questions we get every holiday season.

Frequently Asked Questions


Note: We get so many fraudulent contacts every day that we automatically delete any form that does not have all of the required fields filled in with real information. This form software sometimes allows incomplete forms to get through, so please doublecheck your form before you send it. And if your name really is "IgetziggywhenIdance," please explain that in the comments area so we don't delete your mesage automatically along with the thousands of other scams and spams we get every week.

Seriously - the vendor we were using to support this form broke it, so I fixed it, and I started getting spammed in SECONDS.

If you have trouble using this form, or would rather set up some other method besides PayPal to may your monthly fee (say Patreon, please use our Contact page to let me know. However, I must receive notice that this has been paid within 24 hours of your application, or I will delete your application with no notice. (I know this sounds harsh, but I receive a hundred or so incomplete or fraudulent application every day, and I litterally don't have time to follow up on every one. Again, please consider this the price you pay to have a safe place for discussing your favorite topics on the Internet.)

I do apologize for what may seem like a lot of inconvenience at the "front end" of this process, but I've discovered that it's a lot better for the community to have a rigorous entry protocol than to let scammers or just plain rude people in and try to clean up the mess they cause after the fact.

Hoping to see you in the club soon, I am
