SpaceShare Partner Match Instructions
For More Information:
Planning an event with carpooling and other travel matching opportunities.
Environmentally friendly advice for people traveling to festivals and conferences.
SpaceShare sites can be configured for finding carpool partners, searching
roommates, or a matching people in many other ways. The sites will
work in a similar manner, which we hope is self-explanatory. However, if
having troubles or want to understand how our system works in more
detail, please contact us or read on:
- Enter a user name (one word) and an easy-to-remember password. We
will not distribute your email address.
- Then, enter your post, describing yourself and what you are looking for.
- Next, you will see a sorted list of people who have already
entered their self-descriptions. If you find people you are interested
you can send them emails through our website. You will not be
able to see their email address, unless they send it to you.
- If you do not find the match you are looking for, please be patient.
Hopefully another person using the system later will find you.
- If you do find a match and are no longer looking, please be sure
to cancel your account. You can always come back and re-activate it
if you need to.
How it Works
We have added a number of features to make the Logistics Search efficient
for you. You can close your account
when you are no longer
looking for a partner, either with a single click from an email you receive,
or through the web site. If you change your mind and wish to
restart your search,
you can do so at any time. To prevent you from receiving too
users will not be able to email another repeatedly, unless the recipient
replies to the
We hope users will use the search, and not send too many emails:
we may include the number of people that you have emailed as a note in
all the emails you send, helping people not waste their time with individuals
who are likely to pick someone else. Users can lock out other entries:
you will not see those entries again, they will not see you, and you
cannot send each other email. We hope these features allow people to
use the search efficiently. Please remember to cancel your account
when are no longer
There are ways to change the order that the search ranks people.
This can be done easily from the search page. In addition,
if someone emails you, or you email them,
then they will appear at the top of your next search.
If you don't find someone in your search, especially likely if you sign
up early, perhaps a later user will find you.
You will receive emails,
but to protect each user's privacy, return addresses will not be included.
Instead, the email will have links to our web site. If you are not
interested in someone's offer, with one click on a web
enabled email client (most are), you can instantly lockout that
contact and we will send them a post that you are not available.
To reply to an email, you will need to click on the appropriate link
in the email they sent, opening a browser window. Finally, the email will
include a link to indicate if you have found someone or are otherwise
finished using our service.
Please make sure that your email inbox accepts email from the SpaceShare domain,
or you will not be able to participate.
Email Windows and Popups
There are many ways to configure your browser. If you block all "pop-up",
even "requested" ones (not just automatic pop-ups), then the email window
(the window to send an email to someone else) will be blocked by your browser.
You can copy the link location and open it in another window yourself.
Please do contact us if you have any difficulties: there are some problems
that we are looking for test cases as we write the next update.
Your Email: We will not distribute your email nor send you unrelated
We need your address for one purpose: to allow other searchers to email you,
using an automated process that will
prevent them from seeing your address. In some cases, we may send a single
follow-up letter asking for your feedback.
You can click on links such as "Lockout this user" and
"No longer interested in a search" with any browser, even a very simple
one such as Lynx for Linux/Unix. Even if your
browser is too simple to easily see our regular site or return an email,
these instant one-click features
should work fine.
