Can I just say...

Dark theme ftw.

This is actually a huge thing for me and WZ's software was so out of date it barely had any customisation options.

Also (and this has been mentioned before) but for all new members here who aren't quite used to the new format, I'd advise to use the 'Watch thread' feature on any thread you're interested in keeping up to date with. You'll get a little red notification on the top right corner every time somebody makes a new post in the thread. You can also easily view those threads you're watching only by clicking "Watched threads" along the top bar of the forum. Trust me, it's not rocket science and once you're used to the new format you won't ever want to go back.

Welcome!!

Your username won’t be so welcome around here r**n is a dirty word on this forum. Tends to wash the snow away ;) ain’t no one wants to ski in r**n.

Maybe try Snowdammit!

HAHA! Once you see how variable Townsville's rainfall can be, you'll know why I have that name. Having said that, my property 200km further North at Bilyana averages 2700mm a year (Townsville is less than half that).

G'day you mob.....another Weatherzone escapee.....Not a huge poster per say, but I have a lifelong interest in the weather and climate. 40 year Darwin resident so yes I have all the 'social issues' that entails.....barramundi, beer, swimming in croc infested waterways, driving through flooded creeks, total disregard for personal safety on Cracker Night ( yes, we still have one ), camping, 4wdriving and oh, did I mention beer ?
Born and bed in Victoria and went to school in Albury, learned to ski at Falls Creek ( not very well ) and knocked around the Vic mountains a bit before leaving for the Tropics.
Work has taken me ( heavy project construction hence the username ) all over Australia and some off shore islands.
Played footy in the snow in Armidale, worked in 49.4c heat in Roebourne, experienced 3 or 4 Cyclones, a few ECL's, watched 1100mm fall in week at home, and slept without a bedroom aircon for 35 of my 40 Darwin years.
Always been a bit of a 'stats' man.... enjoy seeing records broken ( mostly heat ones nowadays... sigh )
Looks like a good site and I do admit to lurking in the past, especially so when I make a winter trip down south visiting my Mum...always liked a bit of a snow chase west of the Blue Mountains...
Cheers, Dougie.

Just arrived on the latest bus over from WZ. Looks like it's still a great community here. Used to lurk on here a lot about 10 years ago. Looks like the place has grown into quite a nice community with a solid management team running a tight (but fun) ship!

Thanks for being so accomodating to new members and new topic creation that's outside the traditional realms of this forum.

Looking forward to getting involved.

Cheers.

Welcome.
Jump into the BBQ thread (alpine Weather) to get up to speed with all the WX natter. It’s a good overview and tone of things these days.

Great to be here, don't let the Government know you're letting refugees in! You've even got a climate thread...love to see you guys jumping straight into the deep end :whistle:

There's also a 'gloves off' climate thread in Bear Pit that has been going for years -- you won't see it until you have posted 50 times - but if you would like your access unlocked.. just let me know.

Hi Everyone,

Although I may have joined the forum 12 years ago :eek: I believe this may be my first post.

I tended to spend most of my 'forum' time on Weatherzone, which tended to be not so much in the last few years, as I'm just so busy. But as my 2 teenage kids are at the pointy end of school, I may soon find a bit more free time to stalk/read/chase/photograph/throw snow balls etc.

Quite disappointed to see them close. I'd met some wonderful friends over there in the past 15 years :emoji_astonished:
