Additionally, before using a direct service, please search the main site or message boards first for answers, as we have a very small staff for our level of service. Longer or more complex topics are best for the message boards rather than for our chat or text services.Message board posts are public, so if you're not comfortable having your questions or conversations be seen and kept public, even when your name and no identifying information is in them, you should not post on the boards.
Use for: Almost anything, be it simple questions or in-depth, involved discussions over time. Hablamos español: Tenemos voluntarios disponibles para los usuarios de habla hispana.
This service is also best for when you want both staff and volunteer engagement AND discussion with peers, or primarily peer-to-peer discussion. The SMS (text) service is a question and answer service available for those with mobile phones and the capacity to send and receive text messages.
You may text a question, and it will be answered, and only seen, by our staff or volunteers.
Pollen Chat is the new hyper-local messenger, where you can chat anonymously.
Anonymous chats with anyone across the globe using built in nickname feature When you meet a stranger in real life or online and want to chat with him/her, but you are reluctant to share your phone,email etc.
In that case, you can just exchange the Pollen Nicknames (PNs) and chat anonymously. This is how, you start conversation even without telling your name.After chatting for sometime, if you feel, you can make further conversation with the person (stranger), you can continue.But in case you find him/her annoying and you do not want to chat anymore, you can either block him/her or change your nickname (in case you feel ,if he/she will tell your nickname to others) …Once your nickname is changed, he/she is left with nothing to find you …..Please remember or review our user policies and guidelines when using our direct services.We cannot serve anyone under the age of 13 (due to United States COPPA policies), advise users about unlawful activity, nor replace the services of a healthcare provider. You can ask simple questions and have them answered quickly, or can have ongoing discussions over time -- be that hours, days, weeks or even months -- either with staff and volunteers, peer users, or both.
