About the achievements..

You guys must have noticed the presence of the achievements, and we’re very happy you liked the idea of being able to get points as a reward for them.
To make sure you all enjoy this new feature, here’s some facts about them that you should know:

  • We won’t make public a complete list of the achievements, to avoid cheating of any kind but
  • in general, you can unlock achievements by: posting in the forum, getting friends, posting messages on your (or other’s) wall, liking stuff, sharing etc.
  • All the premium members get a special achievement and 25 extra Karma points.
  • Every month, the winner of the monthly challenge gets a special achievement and a variable number of extra Karma points, as well as 2 runner ups.

But what to do with them and the karma points? Well, every month, the leader of the board (i.g. the person with the higher number of karma points), will get a special treat from us!

(And also some healthy competition never hurt anybody :P)

If you have any further question, please feel free to ask!


A new beginning!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Postal Society 2.0!

We’re really excited to finally have a site on our own, and we cannot wait to get it started with you!

Before starting with fun though, let’s see what’s new with us, shall we?


  • First and foremost, as you might have noticed, we now have our own snazzy domain name! How official, right?!
  • The forum is now better organized in different sub-forums to suits all your needs, and we also implemented threaded comments to make replies easier to read and find.
  • You can now add friends, comments on profiles, and send private messages, so that joining a swap or simply exchanging addresses will be much practical and easy.
  • Adding an ‘@’ in front of a name, will now notify the person that they’ve been mentioned!
  • The site now works on mobiles, so you’ll have your Postal Society always with you even on the go!
  • Unlocking achievements is now easier. Whenever you’ll make a certain action, a pop up will appear to let you know an achievement has been unlocked! We will have special achievement to unlock for challenge winners and more, that will be unlocked by a special code, too. Every achievement will give you a certain amount of points, and we’re thinking of something special for the highest rankers in the leaderboard *wink wink* (Stay tuned for more info about this).

Who’s excited to get started? Here’s a handy link to the forum to start diving right into it 🙂

Please feel free to let us know what you think of the new site, we’d love to hear from you!
