I'm sorry for the hiatus, but admin has become very busy and stressed with real life...she has not shared any personal information of that the members have given, and hopes to revive this group in a couple months! Notes will be sent out to confirm whether or not you still want to participate in this group when activated again! Thank you for all the support everyone!
Our mission is to help connect DeviantArtists from all around!
People have too much access to the internet and electronics, that I'm afraid that the future generation might forget completely about sending traditional mail--handwritten ones
I'm quite frankly surprised at the enthusiasm of everyone, and how quickly most of you applied for this!
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me support such an idea!

What you can do with your DA PENPAL:

-(It can also be your chance to become closer with an admired artist!)
-No complaining with who you get paired up with!

If I give you my address, will it be kept private?
Yes, it will be kept private, for all, except your assigned PENPAL.
Is this safe? You aren't gonna stalk me are you?
The only thing I can't promise you, is the mental state of your PENPAL. He/she might be in a very depressing state in real life, so rethink about joining this, when you click the join button, because THERE'S NO GOING BACK ONCE YOU DO IT!
I live so far away; I'm from the other side of the world; I doubt anyone lives anywhere close to me...am I still eligible to join?
What are you saying? Of COURSE you are! Join, join, join! The only problem is that you might have to spend extra when buying your stamps, but it won't be to dramatic!
Is there a deadline for when I have to apply to join?
Yes, there is! Go look in the 'Affiliates' box, which is located at the top-right section of our page.
IF WE FIND THAT YOU ARE ABUSING YOUR PRIVILEGES WITH YOUR PENPAL'S ADDRESS, YOU WILL BE REPORTED BY BON'S ARMY, BANNED, AND BLOCKED.
