    Correct. He and another jumper had originally planned to jump from much higher than the main load, and jumped 10-20 minutes after the main load.

    Family and friends advice

    If their opinions are important enough to go to the trouble:- Invite these people to spend a day at the DZ. Let them chat to other 'family and friends', as well as other jumpers. Perhaps walk them through the various areas - training, packing, manifest. From the ground, talk them through a jump - show the aircraft running in, the exits, the openings, the pattern, the landings.

    Whats it like running a dropzone?

    Surely this belongs in General and not Q&A?

    Probably the wrong place for this, but no account I have read anywhere mentioned someone who elected not to jump? Three jumpers were pulled off the load because of weight issues.

    Agreed. One is very unlikely to accidentally click on the "mark as read" button, given its position, therefore making the 'are you sure' box really redundant.

    Image links broken in forum posts?

    I can now see pics and was able to attach one no problem. Cheers.

    Image links broken in forum posts?

    I have a similar problem but with new posts in the new forums. I don't see any images, inline or attached. Is there a setting I missed?

    Dropzone Site Launch & Bugs Megathread

    I have reported this as well and thought it had been fixed. Alas, it seems it appears intermittently. Currently there is none.

    Dropzone Template Upgrade

    Two clicks and half a rotation on the scroll wheel and I could see all 24 AADs currently being advertised in Classifieds. You must really struggle with Google searches?
  10. Not functionality, but an observation: The tab for the "Dropzone" page at the top of my browser just shows an "empty page" icon. Any plans to put something prettier there?

    Thanks. Works a charm.

    The new forums do not appear to take me to the first unread post in a thread, as before. They all point to the first post in a thread.

    Where do Skydive Melbourne loads normally take off from?
