For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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.

"Additionally, all foreign workers must now provide fingerprints and other biometric data when applying for residency permits to work in China. It is unclear what this biometric data is, but it is beleieved it will include DNA. Other laws seem to imply that these requirements will be extended to all visitors, including tourists, at some time in the future. All visitors to China are now subject to body searches when entering or exiting the country."

And if other countries did this, China would be up in arms over it.
