For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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.

If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.
