[ Info ] Wannadive is safe! Hi,
Firefox and Chrome users may experiment some difficulties in accessing Wannadive with their web browser. An ugly screen is telling Wannadive could provide malwares and not be safe!...
Our ad server has been attacked Sept 15, and we did fix the problem a couple of hours later. Wannadive is now 100% safe.
What still happen? Firefox and Google uses a database to track websites where malwares were detected. We ask Google to remove Wannadive from this database but it can takes a few hours/days? :-(
Waiting for Google update, you can use a different web browser to access your favorite dive site atlas and community: Internet Explorer or Opera. Those browsers don\'t check Google\'s database.
All the best,
[ Info ] Facebook friends of Wannadive I've setup the website to embed the new "Wannadive Facebook Page" like box. See the new block at the bottom-right of any pages on this website.
Like Wannadive; join the new Wannadive page ;-)
[ Info ] Wannadive is beschikbaar in het Nederlands! Albert has very quickly translated all Wannadive messages from English into Dutch. I\'m sure all divers from the Netherlands, Aruba, Belgium, Netherlands Antilles, Suriname, Benelux, etc. will enjoy having the atlas in this language. We would warmly like to thanks Albert for his contribution.
You can visit Albert profile (search for username=Albert) in the Wannadive community. Don\'t hesitate to congratulate him with a message if you like his translation.
Other languages? Spanish, Portuguese and German is currently in progress. If you are interested in participating in translating the Wannadive interface into your language, do not hesitate: contact us by email at email@example.com.
Hope you will enjoy this new translation as much as we do.

[ Info ] Server migration Dear all,
To increase our websites response time, we will migrate this month our web server and database server to two brand new powerful servers.
The database server will be migrated first this week. The websites will be unavailable for a couple of minutes.
[ Info ] Map your dived sites Hi Folks,
Your 'Dive Sites List' has now a new column named 'GPS' with an icon:
- A black & white 'antenna' if the dive site is already geo-localized (meaning the GPS localization for the dive site is set, and this dive site is plotted in your Dive Sites Maps).
- A green 'plus' icon if the dive site has NOT been geo-localized yet. In this case, this dive site will NOT be plotted on your 'Dive Sites Map' (Both the world image with red pin, and the interactive Google Map). Just click the 'plus' icon to localize the dive site using an interactive Google map.
Once all of your 'Dive Sites' geolocalized, your maps will display all your Dive Sites!
Remember you can embed your map into your Facebook, MySpace, Blogger, iGoogle pages... See http://www.wannadive.net/help/gadgets/ for help.

[ Info ] Invite your Friend(s) - Build your Network Huge News....the 8th menu-item on the left (on the Registered Users menu) has changed from: "Invite Friend", to "Invite Friends"
oh yes, there is an extra "s" for free: we worked out that some of you have more than one friend...
OK. actually we have changed the system to allow you to Select and Invite your friends directly from your existing address-books GMAIL, HOTMAIL, YAHOO, even OUTLOOK - without having to type in all those fiddley addresses.
Why invite friends? well; not only will this build your network directly (since accepted invites are automatically logged as Friends) but it will also increase your community Karma...
All is explained here with screenshots to walk you through the process...
We will also open a forum-thread for questions on this feature.
Lastly, we are mailing you as a registered user - normally we should use the Newsletter feature but for this to work you must sign up for it (again, via your profile). We encourage you to do so as future communications will eventually only be sent out to users who have accepted to receive the Newsletter.....
