I am an Aussie (NSW) who has been having a love affair with New Zealand for quite some time now. I visit the South Island every winter for a holiday and hope to one day have a holiday home there.
I am not into the ridiculously stupid Aussie v's Kiwi crap. I think we both have incredibly beautiful countries and wonderful people who dwell there.
I am married with two kids and work as a professional photographer (another reason I love to visit NZ) as well as run the clerical side of my husbands contracting business.
I am also heavily involved in dressage (my daughter is a professional dressage rider) and I breed warmbloods.

This group is very new.

It has been around for a couple of weeks (being put together), but it only went public about a week ago.

The mad buggers have posted around 2,000 messages since then. I think they're like kids playing with a new toy!  Roll Eyes

I actually like the format of these groups. They are going to be a good replacement for the msn groups.

Actually, I just went and took a look at the group Stats and the message total is way more than 2,500 in the first week!  Shocked

Yeah, you can do a lot with this type of format.

I've been taking a look around some of the Aussie groups hosted by Simple Machines Forums (SMF For Free) and I don't think the administrators of those groups have quite yet worked out the full possibities of what can be created, or the features you can take advantage of.

We've even banged a Chat Room in this group, although it's still largely experimental at the moment.

The chat room is BITEBACK! (see the link in the menu up the top).

SMF don't offer a Chat Room themselves. One of the administrators installed one in the group as an experiment. It's working but is probably open to all & sundry at the moment (including non-members), but we'll probably change that with a lot of tweaking.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body.

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...

WOW, What a Ride!"

Please note: IMHO and e&oe apply to all my posts.

Welcome jodes. I especially like your maturity about the stoopidly childish Aussie vss Kiwi putdowns. It never ceases to amaze me how childish some can be.

I agree with your sentiments here 'I am not into the ridiculously stupid Aussie v's Kiwi crap. I think we both have incredibly beautiful countries and wonderful people who dwell there.'

Thanks for the welcomes.

Benny ask away, hopefully I can give you some tips which will help.

Sir Blodsnogger,
I've spent a bit of time in the South Island and apart from some very good natured ribbing, I have found the people to be lovely and they us. We shouldn't be rivals...we are both the lands from down under after all.
My daughter works in hospitality and meets many Kiwi's. They share stories about how they come here for holidays and we go there and again, there is never any animosity. Of course both countires do have those who are Kiwi haters and Aussies haters....I just see them as intolerant twits with no clue. Smiley

I hate cricket with a passion. It bothers me not who wins or loses. Smiley

Hi Jodes

I'd much rather sit and watch paint dry than watch cricket nowdays.  Not as much fun as it used to be in the days of Hadlee, Border, Chappell, Crowe, etc. Sad

I just find it incredibly boring and wankers like Warne only make it worse.

A person can well understand a ferocious rivalry between NZ girls All Blacks  team and the magnificient Springbok South Africans - but not between NZ and Australia.  Grin

Thank goodness some of us still have faith in the sporting prowess of NZ.
