Not only have we had our home forcefully moved, we have lost the name of it too.

Change it back please!

For once I agree with you.

I think you might be F**ting against Thunder.

I see Fragrant Harbour still keeps its name.

Old name back, please

Yes, I would beseech the mods to give us our old name back.

I live Dununder and I was born in Godzone, so I believe I am entitled to make the request

These are names our nations have "earned" over decades. I think both names may have come in to use roughly around the time that aviation began.

Please bring them back

It's unaustralian to call Australia its actual name, rather than its nickname
Please stick with the original

And, give the New Zealunders their own forum!

Don't lump them in with us.

If there were no Kiwis around, who would make us feel better about ourselves?

There is a reason for the change of name. Since the forums were rearranged and Dunnunda forums moved to the top, we are continually getting rather odd threads, presumably because no one outside this region knows what Dunnunda meant.

Here is an example from today, a UK wannabe asking about a UK medical: http://www.pprune.org/nz-p-general-a...estion-uk.html

Isn't that a clear message that the new format is confusing? PPRuNe Worldwide, but there is no UK, US, German or many other European threads.

Which is why Tail Wheel we should have our forums moved back to our own zone and be done with the rest of them.

If its not broken, don't fix it.

Bring back D&G!

I thought it was kind of appropriate that D&G was almost at the bottom of the page- kinda like being 'Dunnunda'

The place for students, instructors and charter guys.

With a description such as that........ (apart from the title which means nothing to nobody)

Now you will get all the stuff you keep deleting "Which is the best flying school in whoop-whoop....!"

So even with the new name people are confused as to what sections they should post in. Looks like the name change has had the desired effect then, NOT!!!!!

Cool

The way some of you carry on you could believe it is OUR forum not PPRUNEs

In spit of my tag, I was in at the beginning late 90s when it was a broadsheet only.

Like it or leave,
suck it up princesses,
it is no where as good these days anyway, too much me me me and crap answers to silly questions, far to many for sensible debate.

Since the site was sold out to the yanks who then started giving out user details it all went to shit. What a shame that a once great resource is now just useful for random time wasting.

Ouch, that could be a minimum rebuke or a maximum ban.

Good luck!

It is 'our' forum.

Without our participation (by the rules) and our continued visitation the site is meaningless and worth nothing.

I think we need a poll for D&G
