For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

I have experience writing for my Uni paper and would love to contribute some pieces. Let me know how I can be of assistance... Interviewing foreigners playing for Changchun teams is a great idea, Vinz, I would read that.

It could also be interesting to cover the different sports results of the month : Changchun tigers, Changchun Yatai...etc

My colleague Sebastien might be of some interest to since he has been here for ten years and has a very particular hobby miniature wargame. He is planning some events soon as well.

A new private school in Chaoyang district just opened. It`s called l'amour international and it's ran by a chinese man who is married to a french women and lived in France for ten years. I think their story is worth an article!
