Welcome to the new Qatar Living
By now you've probably noticed some significant improvements to Qatar's biggest online community platform. We've been working very hard to upgrade the website from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.
Unless you're a geek, that probably means nothing to you. What you will be happy to learn though, is that the upgraded back-end of the site now allows for better performance and optimisation - which in turn means a better user experience for you!
Got a question? Need help?
The new help tab on the right of your screen will be continously updates with FAQ's, and it will also allow for a quicker response time to help with any issues you face.
Can I still post FREE classifieds ads?
Yes, of course. But in an effort to eliminate spams and scams, you will need to verify your account with a local Qatar mobile number. This means that only people based in Qatar are allowed to sell through our site. Once you receive the SMS verification code that will be sent to your mobile phone, your classified will go up.
And can we still have discussions and ask for advise in the forums?
Yes, of course. Once you log in and browse the forums and comments, you will notice a little heart icon, and an exclamation icon.
The heart icon is basically a like - click it when you like or agree with a valuable comment or contribution. This will help us separate the quality from the rest. And the exclamation is pretty much the opposite - click it to flag anything that you believe requires further attention from the moderators.
But this is only the beginning. We will continue to continue to roll out improved versions of old features, and also many cool new features:
- upcoming improvements to groups, private messages, user points and other functionality,
- new events section to be launched in the near future,
