Dear Ghostvillagers,

Welcome to Version 2.0! Some very big changes have recently taken place. The good news is that we have grown, and to accommodate the growth, we have upgraded our servers and redone our entire site!

Here are the highlights:

Free Ghost Mail: Now you can have free email for life!  Imagine,  Sign up at Check your email anytime from Town Square: The Town Square holds all-new threaded message boards. You do not need to register to use the new message boards--you may view and post messages as a guest. But if you do register, you will have features available to you such as instant messaging to other registered users, the message boards will notify you of new messages and replies to your posts, and you can set email notifications on specific topics.

I’m really excited about these new message boards. They are very impressive and took a lot of effort to implement. The only way to make the new Town Square a success is if YOU use them regularly. Start some discussions, give your theories and opinions… remember, this is YOUR community. is now seeking suggestions for new topics and moderators to ensure the success of those new topics.

Note: We have manually moved many of the old posts from the old “forum” to the new message boards so you can continue your discussions. If you see something missing, feel free to re-post your message.

Ghost Chat: The all new Ghost Chat can be found in the Town Square section. We have purchased the Volano Chat software, which is one of the best chat applications available. Click on “Ghost Chat Now” from within the Town Square, enter any nickname you wish, and begin chatting. is still seeking volunteers to organize and lead regular chats or special chat discussions.  Regular Ghost Chats take place Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 9 P.M. E.S.T.

Ghost Search: has been reviewing and categorizing other paranormal Web sites for the last year and a half. As you can imagine, this was a daunting task.  Now we have launched “Ghost Search,” a Web directory that enables you to search by keywords and section headings. This search engine also enables users to register their own Web sites and keywords, which will help make the service grow much faster.

Remember, this is your site, too!  If you have suggestions or want to help, please contact us:
