Here is a breakdown of the member ratings on the site :

Ratings are based on the number of posts you make. Everytime you post you can see your rating under your name. It is shown as gold stars or diamonds as well as the title of your rating.

As a web designer I spend most of my day in front of the computer, so I pop in here whenever I want to take a break - it has been less lately as I have been busy with renovations as well which eats up HUGE amounts of time.
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: Johan01 on June 14, 2007, 01:53:10 pm
Hi Nolan enjoy the renovations ... hope it will make the house sell for more. I see house prizes are going down due to the possiblilty of another interest hike ....
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: nazmahomed on June 14, 2007, 02:26:19 pm
That seems to be the case. I am really glad to have got mine sold before the interest rate hike. I am sure this is not going to be the last this year iether.
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: Nolan on June 14, 2007, 09:46:36 pm
I am not so sure - the Rand is closely tied to the USD and they are talking about a drop in interest rate, so ours may stay put for a while - I hope  :-\

I better get my price for my house - it forms a huge part of the money we have to take over.
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: Johan01 on June 15, 2007, 02:16:38 am
I see the exchange rate between the NZ$ and Rand is getting worse .... Oil is over 70$us again ... surely petrol will increase once again ... inflation will then increase and of course the rand will drop and interest rate will go up. There are many other factors like credit spending which all are contributing towards the possibility of an increase in the interest rate. It will also be from an economic point of view be wise to increase the interest rate, to curb credit, to check inflation. The strike did not help either. At this stage there is not much that is positive in the economy to keep away from an interest hike. My humble oppinion.
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: Sandramiles on June 15, 2007, 02:17:26 pm

About a month ago it was at 5.00.  The few cents makes a big difference if you take what your house is going to bring in you in the pocket. 

What do you guys think.  Would it be better to sell now or wait until 2010 when the rand may be getting stronger during the world cup and then sell?  The dollar (US) is weak now but with a new president it may become stronger and then the rand will slide.  Also depends if other countries starts buying oil in Euro's in the future.  Sounds like a big gamble to wait till 2010 to me.

Post by: Cameleon on June 16, 2007, 07:09:45 pm
I would sell as soon as possible if I were you, Badprop. Did you see on news24 yesterday, that the goverment is planning in changing property taxes. From the first of July next year they will implement taxes based on the MARKET value of your home. I can't think that this will impact house prices positively!?!  :confused: Makes me mad  :knuppel2:

I agree, don't hang on to your SA money any longer than you have to, get it out asap because it can only go down long term. The Rand does seem to be regaining it's losses of the past few weeks. I reckon it will stay around R7 to the USD - I hope  :o
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: Johan01 on June 19, 2007, 01:35:10 am
Wheather you go USD$  then NZ$ or straight NZ$ there is no difference. If only the rand can pickup some so that when w convert it is on a better scale than 5.3

I agree with selling and getting everything out that you can, even though it isn't much at the end of the day. Still battling to sell our house, we have already dropped R 300k on sale price. The longer you hold on, the more expensive it becomes, the less you get out. Not only is property going to be market related valuation determining rates and taxes, we are already being charged double, as Sydenham has double stands (has had forever). Howick, KZN, has had a 700% increase in rates this year. During the strike, the whites in deeds office in P'Maritzburg registered double the number of titles than the normal staff had done from Novemebr 2006 to the start of the strike! Says something hey? Furthermore, the new credit law is creating major problems and will only worsen the future outlook. Johan's advice is extermely sound, SELL AND GET OUT WHAT YOU CAN. Even if you have to start with less, your future in NZ has bright light at the end of the tunnel......and No it is not a train coming the other way! :-\

last night there were gun shots closeby, Jolene woke me at 2 .. went to bed at 11 ... the rest of the time I stood Watch so that she could sleep. This is our life ... how we will adapt in NZ ..

In one of Pretoria's afluent suburbs, that's why it's like this, has given away most of our dogs ... the ba.....s know that, so they target, another reasons is we had a business with a lot of PC's and that's what they after. Had three robberies in 1 year. nearly been taken to the cleaners the previous times. Lost thousands ...

I honestly think suburbs need the old "pass" laws. If you dont live or work in an area then you have NO business there. If you cant produce a pass, especially at 2am, then you are shot, no questions asked.  :clap:

I am appalled at how some of you guys are living.

I sleep so soundly from 2-4am I never used to hear anything. I was living in a prison complex though, and my bedroom door was locked so they would have to bash it down to get in.

It is AWESOME living here, just to feel safe all the time. You guys will love every minute of it.

I agree on the tears of joy. Got a response from NZ Embassy today. They want copies of Pathology report for missus and I. Our GP says that the reports are fine, no problems. Hope this means something positive. Just need to sell the house and away we go. In that regard, Nolan. How's this for a suggestion prior to your arrival. Plak about twenty of the stickers you've made (surviving Kiwi camp) on the plane. That way we can identify you on arrival and those who can be at the airport are. For those who can't they can still identify your plane from the ground and wish you the hearty welcome you deserve after all the help you have given to so many. :heeha:
Title: Re: Member Ratings

i will see you in Auckland for sure Nolan. Just let me know when and you will definitely have a welcoming party. You really have no idea how much it means to me to have support on this forum from people who know what I am feeling and can help in so many ways. For this I have you to thank

C-ya, SAKB.
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: Nolan on June 27, 2008, 09:13:55 pm
Hi Nico, there are still the normal categories, eg., if you look under your details to the left of your posts, you will see your name, then buddy migrant (for those who have joined), then your member level (in your case Hero), then your stars / diamonds / or 6 buddy logos if you are a buddy, then your actual post count.

So you would still progress up the ranks as normal

Title: Re: Member Ratings

....or 6 buddy logos if you are a buddy....

Don't you think a buddy could also have moved from 1 to 6 the longer they were on?
Meaning you could get from a "newbie" buddy to a whatever buddy. My 2c worth. SAKB

Post by: Saturn_Moon on July 30, 2008, 06:35:07 am
Thanks guys.

SAKB. No worries. This is one of the few places that keeps me from not going insane with all the stress. Just typing and getting positive feedback or just general support helps so much. (thanks everyone).

We are still so scared that we get to NZ and struggle to find jobs, run out of money and have to go back to the hell hole called SA. I know we can do it but we get so scared sometimes because my OH would be quitting his job and who knows the chances of him finding work again in SA as a white male when he can't even get another job currently when he is already employed.

And to top it all off - say we get work, what if something goes terribly wrong with the medicals (my OH is type 1 diabetic) and we can't get PR?  Damn it! I need to stop stressing but this is such scare stuff (as I'm sure you guys all know first hand).

Lidi - I envy you guys so much - leaving for NZ in just a few weeks and you already have PR. Wishing you guys all the best.


Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: noodles mom on July 30, 2008, 07:33:44 am
i feel exactly the same way as SM -

this site is the best place for support and advice and just generally venting

OH leaves next friday on LSS and we still haven't sold the house or cars...  - what if he doesn't find a job quickly ?  no ways we are staying in SA - not a chance in hell

and the medical business, this scares me the most - it is so unknown and anything could happen

aaarrgghh !!

Schalk I'm the same as you. Normally only post if I have something to contribute of quality.  Seldom post congrats or anything like that as there are so many that need doing and so many of those types of posts.

But we love this site :-)  regardless of how many or how few posts we make or their contents.  It's my second family....... would be seriously lost without them.
Title: Re: Member Ratings
Post by: Nolan on May 05, 2009, 02:04:36 am
I wouldn't bash the little "good stuff" or "congrats" type posts, they are often just what a person needs to keep you going and motivated when you feel like your back is to the wall or after you have won a hard fought battle with NZIS, etc.

I have to agree with Nolan on this one - when my DH and I were going through a really tough time, all the short messages of good luck or hang in there was all we needed to keep us motivated.

I know you "vos only choking: Schalk. Don't always have the time to post, let alone worry about content. Just need to make it known, that this site was and is the inspiration for me and my family, and very much the reason we are in paradise - NZ. We are hoping for our PR soon, submitted all the required 'proof of relationship' docs last Thursday. But throughout the process from SA, to here and the current status, the kindness, helpfulness and guidance was and still is unbelievable.  Please all you kind people that have the time, keep up this sort of stuff that helps those still wanting to come over. You really do help and provide assistance inmany ways from decision to execution. Good on you all (especially Nolan for creating this haven), for all your concerns and help. O0 O0 O0 O0
