Hi everyone, we suddenly have availability to do a swap this summer. Is there an area where we can post jsut for last minute exchanges?
Globes will be PLU's new system of tokens for exchanges. 🌎🌍🌏 The system will start in August but to get a Globe for free at the start of the system, list and activate (press the button that says Activate) your home by the end of today. If you've already done so, you don't have to do anything. More information to follow in about a month.
New on this site, I have just finished to describe our family home in Strasbourg! Don't hesitate to look at our proposal... Helene, Jacques & Alexine
A number of people have sent me emails to ask if homes that are already on the site also receive a Globe. The answer to that is Yes! 😃 Other people asked about what "activated" means. An active listing can be seen on the site. If you inactivate it, you can see it but others can't. Globes will be allocated, one per active listing, to all homes on the site as at midnight Sunday. If you have more than one listing in your member profile, you will receive more than one Globe. If you are already listed and activated, that counts, no matter how long ago. The home must stay activated though. They will be allocated around the end of July or beginning of August. If they are no longer active at that time a Globe will not be allocated. I hope that helps clarify things.
Our home in Kiama Downs NSW Australia is free 27.6-6.7 & 13.7-27.7 Take a peaceful, relaxing break to the coast. Cosy up by the fire and share long walks on the beach or in the rainforest. Enjoy warm coffee breaks at the local amazing cafes or join the winter festivals at our nearby wineries.
Drew, What to do more ? My home is on the site, do the globe will be allocated automatically ? Regards
A mid-week reminder that we're introducing a system of "Globes" to assist non-reciprocal exchanges at PLU. You will be able to use a Globe for an exchange anywhere in the world. One Globe will be good for one stay. 🌎🌍🌏 To receive a Globe in our initial allocation when the system starts, LIST AND ACTIVATE YOUR HOME BEFORE MIDNIGHT SUNDAY. More information soon but get in now! www.peoplelikeus.world
Hi friends, I've taken a few days to think about it, talk to people, take some advice and here's what we're going to do. For a start, we're going to call them Globes. 🌎🌍🌏 I will likely introduce them in August or September. One Globe will be awarded to each home listing that is active on the site by the end of next week, 16 June. "Empty" listings i.e listings without proper descriptions and photos will be inactivated and excluded.
Token update The previously announced intention to award a token to new members who had activated a listing before 30 June will be scaled back. I realise now that this will create an imbalance in the number of tokens in the system, and potentially encourage people to register a listing before they are ready. I'll reconsider the way in which we'll award the initial tranche of tokens and make an announcement about it soon. System Update today In one hour's time, the PLU website will be shutdown for a software update which will introduce improved desired destinations and reverse search, and other smaller changes. The system will be down for 1-2 hours. Following the update, it will be necessary to review your desired destinations. This is a major update and requires conversion of a...Afficher plus
Counting the votes that I also received by email directly from the website, we received 421 votes, 355 (84%) for, 46 against (11%), 20 undecided. Respecting this, I will go ahead to build this system as described previously, something that I hope will both assist those who need it and can be ignored by those who don't. There is a lot to do so it will likely not be up and running until August, maybe September. I intend to award one token to each member who has registered and activated their home BEFORE 30 JUNE. Let me repeat that: you must activate your listing before 30 June to receive a token when the system starts. A vote for a name for our token will take place on Facebook in the next week. If you'd like to, please email suggestions by replying to this email.
