I can see weatherzone becoming a virtual ghost town, i can't see too many people coming back here just to check the weather once the forum is gone, they will go elsewhere, same as the people with paid subscriptions. I can't see too many renewing them either? Well i guess if it is all about time and money, then Weatherzone (fairfax) will loose out on both acc. No one will have the time to come here, then they will take their money elsewhere.

I never used Weatherzone except for the forums. But wouldn't there still be a lot of people who use it who never bother with forums?

I don't think Fairfax really cares. Just incidental in their bigger picture.

They are owned by channel 9 which is chaired by none other than Peter Costello. This has been coming for a while and is zero surprise to me.

I contacted WZ on Wed about the fact that my WZ Pro membership is paid to late August,- well after the read only deadline, asking them for a refund of the remaining time paid for, as I'll be giving WZ a big miss after 28 July and deleting their bookmark.

Got a receipt with a number to acknowledge the lodgment of my query, but as yet no reply has been received. Just what I expected to happen, really.
I'll see if anything turns up on Mon. Maybe it's been put in the 'too hard' basket. smirk

Never used weather zone for anything other than the forum so it's no loss from me.

I'll probably look in to the other forums when I get a chance. I'll keep the same username.

Ski is so easy to post an image just copied and pasted and bam it was there. I always linked an image here via imgur.

RF - I'd keep my user name too, or a recognisable variation of it. With WZ I liked the fact that we all know where we each live. I'm unsure of doing that elsewhere, unless it's a new forum built by us. Living in a small town like this it is too easy to find me. Not that anyone would get very far along the last sections of the road...lol.

Vinnie, I do like the idea of Ski's ease of posting a picture. Technology has changed a bit since the days of photobucket.

Cdweather uses the same method for image posting.

Well that news is a bit of a shock, Some of the info posted here over the years has been very helpful in educating more people of what drives our weather and how to read it. A lot of very valuable input will be lost.

I've always been interested in the weather, right from dad showing me the daily chart in the paper each morning as a kid. Then finding this forum taught me oh so much more than just to look at the MSLP, different layers , troughs , ridges , MJO , Rossby waves ECT ECT and not to take any model run or outlook too seriously.

The community we had here was like a family and checking on each others totals and conditions has been a link in both hard and good times.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed and special thanks to the Mods..

If we find a new home I'll see you all over there , if not well it's been nice to know you.


Cheers

PS, 6mm this morning from a couple of overnight showers .

I've joined The Australian Weather Forum
http://www.theaustralianweatherforum.com/forum/

Name is "28degrees" (@ symbol not allowed).

They have a banner on the main page welcoming new members from Weatherzone, and apparently making changes to accommodate us. smile

You don't need to be.
Their weather forum section is exclusively about weather.
Hmmm, just like WZ is.

A very welcome 29mm so far overnight in Cairns northern beaches. Perhaps this is the last hoorah before the dry actually kicks in?
