As for ski, I joined whirlpool for tech info, and they have all kinds of unrelated stuff these days.

There's someone from WZ on whirlpool at the moment discussing starting a section there. But - WP is anonymous, and I don't see much point in discussing weather if your location isn't known.


Agree. ...and CD Weather wont show posts unless you are a member. I guess we might all find ourselves somewhere common in the future. I'm too old to tolerate FB.

Facebook is out of the question. I'll start off with AWF. And stay there if there's enough of us. It will be what we make it.

Damn. Just read this as well. frown frown frown
Sat on that side for years following all the great info you guys have shared over the years. (Previously Clearskiies and Coastncountry)
lived on the Sunny Coast for over 25 years and moved up to FNQ 3 years ago. Now not far from Dormant.
I too am not in favour of a more southern based forum, and I see that ski.com has posted up a welcome to WZ folks.
But as noted earlier, there is so much data posted on these forums that it would be a great loss to all if gone to the past, as are all the people behind the posts.
Although I haven`t talked or met in person, you feel like a close family.
Hopefully something can be worked out on an alternative before the closure date.

I just wanted to say it's a shame that these forums are closing.

I found them, and the people who contribute to them, to be an absolute fountain of knowledge, and I have learnt so much over the years.

Critically, in times of disaster (Larry, Yasi, the floods this year to name but a few) I found this to be the best-informed source and interpreter of knowledge, certainly better than mainstream sources.

Cheers

Yep, you sure did. Hope Simmo gets here in time too.
At least these wonderings and ramblings will be here til November, for people to see where we all disappeared to.

Simmo checks in on the site regularly.
He's just decided not to post anything, that's all.

Bit disappointing to find out we are losing the forums after all these years. I have registered for Aus Weather too. Same user name!

Where are most members moving too?

Me and 28 have already hooked up on Aus Weather Forum, Don't know what is taking the rest of you so long.
It's not like WZ is going to do it all for you anymore.
Most of the Locals here can now be found on https://www.theaustralianweatherforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=94&t=2474

Life Changes People, WZ no longer appreciates our input. Hopefully we can all continue to observe and communicate at
a new location.

I was a member of WZ long before my current 2006 member date, even though that date is going back 13 years now.

And what do you end up with after all that ??? All the contributions made by everyone, the efforts of the mods, the discovery through discussions, Community's connected, the education passed on ?

You get a shutdown due to profit margins.

I might not have agreed with everyone I met here on WZ, but at least I had a chance to disagree with them and them with me.

I guesse that does not matter any more.

It's not unlike Photobucket, the way they pulled the plug, and literally destroyed extensive sections of mant forums.

Maybe some (slightly) warmer nights after tonight. Thank f**k.
My scotch whisky bill has gone up big time trying to warm my innards.
I'm thinking Marakai might be feeling the chill up there too. Poor old fella.

I've joined up on AWF as well, not so much as to post but to be able to keep up with what's happening in the Qld tropics as that's where most of you guys have gone to.

I'm mainly posting on ski.com.au as there are some familiar names on there from my neck of the woods.

Must travel up your way again sometime. The last time was in 2012 for the total solar eclipse.

The two equivalent day to day threads in the tropical forum on Ski have about four times the posts of AWF.

Yep, way more people have migrated from WZ to Ski than any other weather site.

Ha, thanks for the heads up guys. Guess I (will mostly) read you over at TAWS/SKI then :-)

PS: was just coming online to see how everybody was doing with the cold up here on the Tablelands. Living here for 10 years now and originally came from Germany, Thuringia.. was used to -10 to -20 deg winters.. I'm freezing at 20 degrees plus nowadays. :-)
Stay warm.
