Welcome WZ'ers!

I made the jump a couple of years ago, I don't understand the anti-AWF rhetoric on WZ, I've had quite the opposite experience.

Love it here, hope you all enjoy it too!

Finally I might get to lurk on a few more threads. Came over here a long time ago now, I'm not that knowledgeable so I generally just read.

I don't get the negativity from the WZ forum, I wonder if it's people with an axe to grind or just trying to push their preferred site?

Regardless hopefully this place takes off, be good to see some non Vic content - even though I live in Melbourne.

I been here since day one. Most of us were refugees from the Weatherzone forum as that site got a bit, well, ummm so far up itself only its feet were poking out. In fact this site was started by a kid, who loved the weather, and is now a professional weather forecaster. Well done Karl.

The difference here was is and always will be, that is is a site to have fun, Not try and prove you are smarter than anyone else.

The highlight of this site to this day, and it is a sad thing..............it was the go to place for info on Black Saturday. Thats why some of us still have the yellow ribbon as out Avatar.

Have fun all you new people. Its just like voting.....

POST EARLY POST OFTEN.

Yes I was following Karl on Weatherzone during Black Saturday. I thought he was fantastic in his updates. After Black Saturday Karl was given a holiday by Weatherzone for some reason or other. I really missed Karl's insights after that so I wrote to him and said I could build him his own forum. He was reluctant at first but then we sat down and built The Australian Weather Forum together.

So proud of what Karl has achieved since that day back in 2009.

Welcome to all the people that have come over from Weatherzone. We are not nearly as big but we have an awesome little community here. Jake Smethurst is the owner these days and does a great job.
