Hello from your old administrator!

Postby DiveDiva » Sat Jul 18, 2015 3:26 am

Kia ora!

My name is Rachel (aka DiveDiva) and I am the founder of this lovely diving forum! I am so pleased that it's still going strong and also to see some familiar names popping up!

For those of you who don't know me, I moved back to the UK just over 5 years ago to start a family and sadly, haven't really dived since (I did a series of 'Seal Team' sessions in my local pool last year but that's it!)

I'm going to spend a bit of time reading up on all your news and probably making myself quite jealous in doing so!

Anyway, I just wanted to say "hi". It's been too long and I hope to travel over to NZ in the not so distant future and maybe join you for a dive!

Hi Rachel,

Great to hear from you! We miss you here in New Zealand. Get in touch if you come for a visit. Would love to dive and catch up.

Sadly the New Zealand scuba forum is as good as dead these days. Almost no interaction. Makes me a little bit sad as I do think this was a great tool to reach divers around the nation beyond your own little diving circle. Sadly none of those divers are on here anymore so while it's a great tool it's not very effective.

I check the site from time to time using Tapatalk on my mobile so that makes it really easy to touch base and say hello to anyone passing through.

I just put together a little video - I'll share that now and see if anyone pops up. But don't take it personally if you don't get other responses. I just don't think anyone is on here anymore. :-(

Cheers,
Ali

I think most people have moved on to Facebook for discussing diving and the like which is a great shame. It is very difficult on there to meet other divers you don't already know.

Welcome back DiveDiva :)

Hey guys!

Yes, I took a little look the other day and it looked more populated than it actually was (there were about a million unread messages - oops!)

Where's your video Ali? I would love to see it!

Maybe when people get board with Facebook (I know I am a little bit and that is saying something!) Might do a shout out on there and get people back on here :evil:

Lovely to hear from you both!

Welcome back :)

Lately it looks like Ali and I are the most prolific posters (and that is saying something) and I must admit that I have a slight ulterior motive - the promotion of freediving in a safe environment where the risks are managed.

'ello!

That is a very honorable ulterior motive in my book ;)

Glad you're still here!

They colonised quick and are still spreading. I sure do love them! :-)
