David - why don't you have a "member since" feature on the rig profile.

I often see a member post but wondered are they a newbie, veteran or just changed there call sign. I can't keep up....

It might motivate a few visitors to join up to - bit like the RACV or RACQ do - but then you'd have to offer some incentive for longetivity..... say free lifetime membership over 2 yrs............when did I join? :)

Makes no difference how long you been a member, there are some ex members here who have masses of experience in travel, outback, tips hints etc.

There are some newbys that are the same, there are some LONG term members who dont know bovine faeces... so, it doesnt really work.

YMMV

Geesus Bruce... really....fairdinkum - never would've thought....
read post again - not my point - open z mind.

I see someone post I've never seen before - maybe I've missed something. e.g Doug T - what's his story?

Join up anyway you slacker. You should be setting an example.....

Ozdyssey,
Having read your post I would like to say that any thoughts to increase membership are very welcome as it amazes me that with such a great site there are only just over 1000 members in the 6 years or so it has been going.It seems that at any set time there are nearly twice the visitors using the site against the number of members.I am not denying that visitors don't have genuine helpfull input, but surely if you are going to use the site the small membership fee can only help to further improve the already great facilities.Maybe David and crew should consider placing a time limit (say 1 year) on visitors before having to join.Don't intend starting a s***t fight as it is only my opinion which I am sure some other members will share.

Ozdyssey,

On your Rig/Profile page where you have the description of your vehicle you could put it there at the top. I am going to include it now on my profile.

Good looking Troopie.

Cheers Wayne - the trucks coming together well - just building the rear storage & bed and she's done - ready for life on the road.

'Member since' in the rig profile.
Why didn't I think of that.
Have done same - this could catch on.

Earning increasing credits in the shop with each years renewal might be an idea.

Good idea - I will add it to the system. We know record the date in the system when the membership is created so all I need to do is output it on the screen. Do not adjust your profiles I will have it done today.

I remember you changed your name from Wherethefugawi to Wherethehellawi on 29 May 2003, Richard.

. . . and then along came the Emu that hated Puddleducks.

You've been a busy boy.

Richard,

These records are automatically loaded when each member record is added to the system the startdate is automatic. I do remeber you had two at some time for some reason so it would be attached to the record that you ended up with. Do you happen to remember the past member number?

I thought at first that the idea of time limiting visitors had merit in encouraging people who regularly use the site to become members

then I realised that while I became a member in 2002 I first came across this sight when planning a cape york trip in 1999.
Didnt exactly rush to sign up myself.
I think it was the constant improvements as the site developed and the additional
features that eventually saw me part with my $30 at the time.
still believe that site gives me more than $1 per week in entertainment value so I maintain membership.

cheers
Howard
