Edition 235: 9th June 2011
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
Major Prize Draw Announcement
Anyone who was an ExplorOz Member on the 31st May was in the Major Prize Draw, which meant 2804 people stood the chance... but there was only 1 winner. Congratulations to Member - Tom M (VIC), who wins a Battery Isolator, a Battery Charger, and a Battery Management System donated by Redarc Electronics and worth $2,255.
Add Events direct to Outlook
A new icon has been added to each Event in our Events Calendar, which allows you to instantly add any event to your calendar. Works with Outlook and iCal compatible calendar systems. Go into the Events system and click on the iCal icon and see it for yourself!
Yes there is a Forum Edit Feature
A common complaint we hear is wanting an edit feature in the Forum. But there is one already - all you have to do is click the PREVIEW button instead of SUBMIT when you first write your post - this will allow you the opportunity to check and edit your post. Once you're sure its ok, then click SUBMIT. Too easy!
Get your Winter Warmers from ExplorOz
We have a good range of practical travel Apparel including cosy winter items such as the ExplorOz Beanie and the Polartec Hut Booties, plus our Outdoor Gear range has everything you need to keep dry from virtually windproof Trekking Umbrellas to Waterproof Map Cases. Shop with ExplorOz for great customer service and convenience.
Why Membership is Important
Because ExplorOz aims to provide the best online content in the market, we have tried to ensure that access remains open to all site users. However, the reality is the very thing that is so "successful" (our huge audience), creates our greatest cost. To help buffer the reliance on sales and ads, we think it is only fair to ask people to pay for site use via the Membership option. Member features are extensive but whether you value these benefits or not, the small annual fee of $50 can make a big impact on how the site operates.
If you desire a less-commercial site, then we ask you to please join as a Member.
If you continue to gain something from what we offer - be it facts, fun, or friends... then keep your Membership active each year, or buy a Lifetime Membership.
