Grecia-Sarchí Web site makes changes

With eight months under its belt, Que Pasa (, the free-membership community information Web site serving the English-speaking residents of greater Grecia and Sarchi, announced two major changes for its subscribers.

First, Que Pasa has added a private-access, subscribers-only answer page on Facebook. “We felt that as a no-cost community information Web site serving English-speaking residents of greater Grecia and Sarchi, many of our subscribers could benefit from the local knowledge of other subscribers who have lived in the area a little longer,” said Debi Gedling, Que Pasa editor and co-founder.

“We hoped that newer members of our Que Pasa Web community would not have to re-invent the wheel anytime they encountered an obstacle that more-seasoned subscribers may have previously overcome.” Subscribers will now be able to post questions on the members-only Que Pasa Answer Page on Facebook. Other members can offer answers and solutions to the question and the “asker” will be notified by email when an answer to their question is posted.

After eight months, Que Pasa also was able to learn how to better organize the site to make it more intuitive and easier for its subscribers to find the information contained on the site. Site content oriented to “things to do and see” (restaurants, entertainment, events, and tourism sights) can now be found in a single location; “activities and classes” (such as pet spay and neuter clinics, Zumba dance and yoga classes) in another; and “services and resources” in a third.

Other information on the Que Pasa site such as: real estate and items for sale; rentals; pet news; recipes; contributed articles, lost and found; and miscellaneous remains easily accessible as before.  Subscriptions to the site are free.
