    Thanks Euan

    Saw your post on the nzastronomers list and decided to try it out...without realising I already had an account here that I hadn't used!

    There's a couple of things I noticed that might not go down too well with people transferring over from the nzastronomers list though - mainly some of the requirements for users to have a certain number of posts (5) before they can join a group, or comment on a group post (11), or private message people (30).

    Other than that, I do like it!

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Thanks for the welcome Billy! I wish I could send the clear, dark skies mate. I got about 2 hours viewing in tonight and then the cloud silently slid in and spoiled everything!

    Yes, I think the proposal will be a bit controversial on nzastronomers, but I'm also sure that the software is better here and that there is much to be gained from being associated with astronomers world wide. The atmosphere on this forum is really good, as it is on nzastronomers, and we could retain the same moderator for any sub forum or group we set up for NZ astronomy.

    Cheers,

    Hello Mike. Glad to have you with us on here. I think that it is great that you can do that kind of astronomy outreach to the public. A late welcome to the forum, and keep up the good work that you do.
