No-shows

Hi,
I'm a brand new as a host to Warm Showers and am wondering, as I read the forum about hosts who have cyclists who don't show up and don't receive an email -- is it inappropriate to exchange phone numbers once contact and arrangement has been made?

If a cyclist is unable to email, why can't the host just call them when the cyclist hasn't arrived as planned? Or is there a rule on warmshowers that you can't exchange phone numbers?

Thanks, and I look forward to being part of this community.

Hello, Gaia,

My phone number is on my profile page. I usually get a call or a text as well as an email. Once they send me their phone number I send a text to say hello and prompt them to respond.

I've never had a no-show this way. I have had messages telling me of a change in plans, which is just fine with me. I'd rather know someone isn't coming than just wait for no reason.

What about the person never

What about the person never arriving? i stepped two hours out of my way and it was confirmed they(the cyclists) would txt when they arrived in the city. And a No-Show occurred. i'm assuming everything went well, but it makes me not want to offer any more. i am active in Couchsurfing and BeWelcome and am familiar with these happenings, but there no recourse on this site for it.
Thanks for any help.
