Hi ExplorOz Reader, here's the latest news and updates from the ExplorOz Team, we hope you enjoy it!
Photos shown in
Places are now displayed using our new photo viewer, which also includes nice new features such as:
- star rating based on audience votes
- screen name of photographer
- link to profile (if active member)
- link to Member Message (if active)
- date of photo
- active edit icon for photo owner/site administrators
The highest rated photo from any Place page will be automatically selected and shown at the top of any Place page, so the control is in your hands!
Handy New Way to Store/Share Your Memories
Each Member Profile page now provides a list of "My Places" - based on uploads that member has made to the Places database. For people such as Member - Warrie (NSW) who is a regular contributer, this shows over 300 Places. This features means your profile will automatically create the list so now its super easy to store/share your photos and comments on Places you've been.
TIP: the easiest way to add Place photos & comments is by mobile phone/email during your trip.

Turn your Trash into Xmas Cash
We all know Christmas is a hard time financially, so why not take a look at what you can turn into cash using the ExplorOz Trader. Sure you may not have a large ticket item such as a vehicle, camper or trailer ready to sell, but anything you no longer use is worth advertising if you can turn it into a bit of spare cash. So dig out that box of parts & spares, camping gear, or fishing tackle, take a few photos and create a NEW LISTING in the Trader and watch it turn into Xmas Cash! We have 13 categories including Miscellaneous and an Australia-wide audience of 1 million viewers per month. Listing fees start at just $19.95. Doesn't that sound like a good deal?
