i've read your response to similar inquiries. i would truly accept this at face value if i saw my postings even a week later or received a response from the administrator after asking the questions more privately. i have not been registered as an RPCV and don't know why. the courtesy of responding would be nice, but maybe this won't get posted or received either....

Dear Mr. Bursten,

Thank you again for your comments. Your original question was posted here.

This web site is one family's contribution to the Peace Corps. We consider it a continuation of our Peace Corps service to the third goal.

Keep in mind that "Peace Corps Online" has no connection with and no contribution from the US Peace Corps or any other organization and that it takes thousands of hours every year and thousands of dollars every year for us to maintain this site. Due to time constraints we are unable to give a personal response to every message we receive. There is much else that we cannot do because of financial and technical limitations and we realize that there are probably many RPCVs who could do a better job at running a web site such as ours.

We are truly sorry that you are dissatisfied with certain aspects of our web site and we suggest that there are other avenues that you can use to contribute to the Returned Volunteer community. In answer to your specific question, we try to post new registrations once a month at the end of every month. Here are some suggestions that we have for how you and other returned volunteers can contribute to the RPCV community:

If you are not already a member, please consider joining the NPCA or becoming a member, a contributor, or an officer in your Country of Service Group or Local Returned Volunteer Group. Please consider contributing to the Peace Corps Fund, the Peace Corps Museum, or the Fallen Peace Corps Volunteer web site. Please consider starting your own web site like Jason Pearce's Third Goal web site to continue your contributions to the third goal.

Thanks again for your constructive criticism and we will keep it in mind as we continue working for the Returned Volunteer community.

Best Regards,

Hi, just surfed in. I enjoyed looking around your web site. This site has been very useful to me so far and I have barely scrathed the surface of it.
