Some years ago we started awarding gold Memberships to NZ members who had been with us for more than 5 years. This was not the case for Australia and in agreement with the HomeLink board we now have the same system in place for Australian Members. Have a look and see if the profile photo on your Dashboard has changed.
We believe this enhances your opportunities for Members seeking prospective exchanges in Australia & New Zealand
Quite amazingly 48% of AU Members now display the ‘Gold Medal’ and even more amazing is one member has been with us since 1988. 16 of you have been Members since the 1990’s .
Searching the world
If you are ‘Open to offers’ here is a quick way of seeing the possibilities
- Click any country on the main page. This takes you to the ‘search page’
- Remove ‘Your destination’ and leave it blank. Put in ‘Location of your home’. Click ‘Search’. NB Best to put in your country rather than a suburb.
- Result……..All Members seeking ‘Your Location’ plus ‘Open to anywhere’
- Check ‘Exclude Open to anywhere’ Result………. All world members wishing to come to ‘Your destination’
Use the map to click the Numbers and see where they are or click ‘List view’ to see their listings. (hover over icon if in doubt)
If you are not set in your plans this is a great way to find a surprise. One of our very best exchanges was found this way at somewhere we had never thought of going.
When I click the folder in my messaging, why can I only see Archive & Trash?
Valerie’s answer – See our personal listing below. You must first ‘Create Folder’ (Europe 2018) As many as you like!
