Globes: What happens now?

Thanks all for the overwhelming response. The date and time you activated your listings is recorded and you don't need to do anything else. The Globes system will start in August. Until then, just use the system as you have in the past. Your Globe will be visible when the system starts but you won't see anything different until then. If you're not on our Facebook group,, please join us as this is the best way to advertise your listing and discuss your plans with other members. Thanks again.

Last minute

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?

Last day, last reminder: Globe PLU offer closing today

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.

PLU Globes to be allocated to all homes registered by midnight Sunday

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 If they are no longer active at that time a Globe will not be allocated.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.

PLU tokens will be called Globes

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 and Scheduled Update today

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...
