The site is growing big time at the moment. :clap:

We hit 2 million page views on the forum yesterday. The first million took 11 months to reach, the second million took only 4 and a half months  :heeha:

We also had a record number of new members joining last month (Jan 08) with 243 joining the MyMove section and 160 joining the forum. (So far the average has been 185 and 60 respectively).

Doing a little bit of maths - Most registrations are probably 1 per family, say 3 people per family, then 243 registrations = 730 people = one school less in SA eventually just from the "class of Jan 08" O0

A special welcome to all the new members, especially those that may still be too shy to post.  ;)
Don't be shy to say Howzit, were a cool bunch O0 and besides we wanna hit 3 million page views in 2 months this time  :whistle:

Thanks to everybody for making this the friendliest immigration site on the net, I think we have all shown that the "helping hand" spirit that we all thought was gone is still well and alive among those in and going to NZ :clap:

But it is not really the stats that speaks the loudest. The truth lies in the evidance..........

I would not be here if it was not for this forum.

Thank you Nolan and all the rest of you guys for saving my family's life

and for giving my children a future....  :flowers:

A very, very big thanks Nolan and all the rest who post their experiences on this forum. I've been on for one month now, and have two family members in NZ now. Been just a few days, so they still need all the info they can get. And the encouragement too.
And by the looks of it, every SA'n is latching onto this now...... This is turning out to be the biggest 'help-line' ever. And we can SEE the results.

Well done Nolan. May I add my thanks as well. I do not know what it was that inspired you to start this forum but it really has been life saving and life changing for me. That sounds really soppy but true. Here's to the next 2 mill. :drunk:

Goodness, I am truly amazed!!  Yeah, thanks Nolan!  As Didi said, if it weren't for this site... who knows where we'd be?  Would we have gotten out of the USA in time?  I know my hubby didn't have the guts to do the cowboy thing, even though we were in Texas!  When I see how many of our fellow Saffas in the USA are struggling with the very unfair system there, and how many of them land up being "out of status" without them trying to be illegal, I am just so thankful to this site, that helped me get all our ducks in a row, and get here with time to spare! 
And I have so enjoyed seeing the people here become a community of caring people! :smitten:
lekker sweet as, y'all
