Are you wondering about the organization or team behind SwanWaters? You can check out our About Us Page for some more info. Or are you looking for more practical advice? Well then the FAQ Page is probably your best bet.
All that aside, we have assembled a few answers to membership questions we have been asked. And if you have any more, just add them in the comments below.
Why Do I Have To Pay For A Membership?
SwanWaters is a membership site, and our reasoning is simple. We wanted to create a space where you can feel safe to share your story. By asking for a membership fee, we can create a private forum, away from the prying eyes of bullies. In order to do that, we need real-life people to be in the site monitoring what is going on.
Free internet community sites are free—typically because they are gathering your personal info and selling it to outside advertisers. We will not do that.
For people who struggle to make the financial commitment, we are happy to provide a scholarship. All you need to do is get in touch, and wrte to me about how the scholarship will help you

I Don’t Have A Credit Card. What Now?
Well, that is not a problem. We have set up the site so you can pay with PayPal, too. And it is easy to set up an account if you haven’t got one already.
If you have applied for a scholarship, you will be able to sign up for the site using your Scholarship Code. In that case, you will not need a credit card at all.
