    What the robot hell? Do you know how long it's taken me to find out that there are australian and new zealand boards here. How do you expect people to find them easily?

    Maybe they were registered before, under a different name?

    I suggested a little tagline explaining what countries are in Oceania a while back. Sort of like Europe's FanForce Europe - European fans, meet here!, but ours would be more like FanForce Oceania - talk to fans from Australia, New Zealand and Guam. I think it was put up for discussion in the old folks home, but I haven't heard any replies on it.

    Welcome to the region! ;)

    I thought you had to have a certain number of members to maintain a FF forum?

    Hence the fact the board is being deleted?

    a tag line would be a good idea, I had to ask on another section if there was a place for aussies to post.

    I hope you guys are just joking around with me because so far I haven't been made to feel real welcome in the general forums. :(

    Don't worry Bender, you're always welcome in VicFF, where everybody knows your name. And says "Huggard" a lot.

    I move a motion that we get rid of the "Oceania" title and change it back to "Australia & New Zealand".

    All those in Favour?

    Nay. I'm sorry, it's not going to happen. There was a reason for the change and it's still in place.

    Did anyone ask the people of Australia & New Zealand?

    Why not make up a seperate section for the other places?

    Because when/if more FF chapters come in, they just come here. How does it affect what you do here? ?[face_plain]

    I don't like the name either but at least adding a tag line would let people know that there are Australian and a New Zealand forums.

    I told you my plans for that a while ago - they're still in place, I just need approval for one or two things I want to do to make it more fun. ;)
