Actually..... its one thread that has got bugger all posts in it. There's been much more in the last week in the CD weather thread.
Please quit the pro-ski propaganda that you are perpetuating throughout.

With all due respect, I have no allegiance to ski.com other than reading it for 14 years (without ever posting until last week) and noting that it is a far more user friendly site with a better culture than other sites I have seen. IMO. There's no propaganda involved here.

My only motivation has been to try and keep as many WZ'ers together as I have always read posts from all states.

I like your motivation Homer and like you, I have also always read posts from across Australia. When I read about the observations from different places, I try and form an image of the conditions, in particular if I have been to the place in question. I have been to a lot of different places over the years.

It's a bit sad to see the familiar names from WZ going their separate ways, but everyone needs to find a new site that works best for them.

There are quite a few familiar names on ski which is where I currently feel at home with. I may check out some of the other sites when I get some time.

I've been on WZ since 2001. I don't know too much technical stuff about the weather and mainly post observations, in particular my rainfall readings from my trusty Nylex 1000.

Anyway, catch you around the traps.

You sure will. On one trap anyway.

I joined back in 2008 and while I haven't posted much on here in recent years, I will miss reading the weather observations made by you all. Special mention to TS and teckert for your weather forecasts and helping us to better understand weather dynamics.

Yeh, most people in Sydney know where it is. Not so much people from other states. It's in the Hills District, mainly full of expensive 5 acre properties but a few small pockets of residential, where I live.
Most of it is around 200 mtrs asl. Full of plant nurseries and market gardeners. Lots of deciduous planting in the district so a beautiful area in autumn. Also, plenty of large pockets of native bushland, so very susceptible to bushfires. Controlled burning happens too regularly though for my liking.

Looks good - hopefully we can get plenty of WZers on there! I'll probably wait until the last day here though - old habits die hard!

Yer, it does look promising, feels more like "home".
I also joined everyone, SKI not too bad, but this looks more Aussie Weather like, and friendly, and what we are all used to.

Hey all.
Just wanted to say my goodbyes. Thanks to everyone that's contributed on here over the years. Been a part of the community for most of its history, and its been a great ride. Some good friendships developed and some interesting debates and conversations had.
I wish everyone the very best, and I hope to see you on www.ausweatherforum.com where many of us are going to continue.

Beautifully said. I never posted much, although I lurked a lot and for a long time and learnt much. I looked upon you guys a sages of weather wisdom and always came in to check for a write up on a suspected big event. I'm on AusWeather forum too and trying to be more sociable there ;-) See you around people.

P.S. Some of the old South Aussie names I haven seen for a while, Helen comes to mind for one, is anyone in contact with them on social media? Maybe they could give them a heads up about AusWeather?

Yes, this will be my goodbye post, but on here only. I hope to keep in touch will everyone who has ever been a regular on here elsewhere, but like Tim said, AusWeather is the place. (Not discounting others, but).

I'm glad that SA posters are heading to AusWF, I think most of the Vic crew will post there, ....would be a shame to get "lost" to each other given the weather similarities not to mention losing the expertise of those in SA.

We are doing well with Victoria, SA, Tasmania, and NSW. Tropical areas have gone for Ski (bit ironic hey)

A special thank you to everyone who has contributed to the South Australian threads over the years.

I found this forum relatively late in its existence, at the end of 2010 literally 1 week before the epic December 7 event many of us will remember well. I already had a great interest in the weather for many years before this but had no idea that so many other people shared the same passion for weather that has come to define my life.

I have learnt an incredible amount about the weather and climate of our state as a direct result of the countless contributions to this forum, I have no doubt without its existence I wouldn't have learnt half of what I now know.

This forum was born around the dawn of accessible digital photography and it was the amazing images of lightning and storms from so many talented people in this state who posted to this forum that inspired me to buy a DSLR and take up photography as a hobby. Years and hundreds of thousands of images later, I am ever grateful for that inspiration.

Thanks again to everyone for the memories and the friends made along the way.

I will dearly miss this forum.

One last one from me as well, I should give a shoutout to Weatherzone for providing the forum in the first place, little did they probably know at the time how much of an effect it would have on building and bonding the Australian weather community, it was always my number 1 go to place every day for nearly half my life.

It's great we will at least still be able to read back from time to time on all the great events and systems as a useful historical resource.

Thanks to all the posters who have made the forum what it is, it's been a pleasure to share it all with you along the way.

I've joined ski and CD boards but now the ausweatherforum and I think that might be the best of the three to stay on so, catch you all over there.

Over and out

TS cool
