Hi Susan and everybody,
There are no rules governing who can access this site, the only requirement is that contributors to the forum treat others with kindness and courtesy.
Although the content of the site is biased towards mahayana buddhism (which I follow) there is certainly no requirement that anyone contributing to the forum subscribe to any particular view. Anyone, buddhist or not, who wishes to take part in our community discussions is welcome, we only ask that they bear in mind the stated purpose of the forum as outlined in the intro at the top.
And Susan, there are no rules on how often anyone can contribute! I've noticed that people tend to contribute in cycles, and of course, as nothing is permanent, people come and go (although there are quite a few "old faithfuls" who have been around for a long time and make invaluable contributions!).
[Mind you, as a little tip, it might be an idea to lay off the CAPITAL letters a bit, that is usually regarded as shouting in net conversation!]
I hope that you continue to play a part in the Buddha's Village community for a long time, whether you choose to be heard or to be silent...
BTW, there are quite a few people here who are familiar with Nepal and Buddhism there, so it would be great if your friends decided to pay us a visit!
May the Dharma be with you,
