Congratulations teamaustralia! I will be rooting for you in the first steem Olympics!

Seriously, I wish you luck in helping your community to grow. I know under this team's leadership, you will help steemit to thrive in Australia.

And when one community thrives, we all do!

Hello hanshotfirst (he did, I agree, but Greedo 'drew' first - so according to Mos Eisley laws, Han was merely acting in self defense)

Thanks for popping in and your kind words. Yes had considered Steemit Olymics or similar - leave it with me ;)

Oh yes, we shall thrive - just keep sharing that wealth of your mate.

Thanks for the heads up on Wonder Woman - will wait for the DVD. I agree, new bird has nothing on Linda.

Seeing you are a movie buff, you might want to check out the Tribute I made to Predator in case you haven't already - if you are feeling real generous - give it a resteem. :)

https://steemit.com/movies/@sirknight/a-tribute-to-schwarzenegger-s-predator-1987

Please drop in to Team Australia from time to time and say g'day.

SirKnight.

·
·

So you guys really say g'day? I though I would look like an idiot American if I dropped that on you. (LOL)

Han could have used you as his lawyer... not sure Jabba would have cared but it could have helped with the local government.

I LOVE the fist Predator. I was 16 when it came out. Right in my wheel house!

This is great sirknight, I just posted in life section about drinking with my friend while building mounts for his goKart. a typical aussie saturday evening.

·

Hi stocka - great to have you on board mate - see you a teamaustralia. SK.

SirKnight.

·
·

Hello Sir Knight, Thank you very much. Pumped to be part of the team! Born in Sydney, live in the Central Coast, NSW now.

And cheers, I was pretty happy with the result :) Hope he comes back soon.

Happy i posted something about it. At first i thought it was me or my laptop... Im still working steemit out. That was a pretty epic post, so a typo or two is understandable.

Regards Mike

·
·
·

Know the Central Coast well Mike, thanks.

·
·
·
·

Ah Nice. Yeah, its great spot!

Sir knight, we have one of your aussies in Virginia, USA. He is a great friend. His name is Marc Leishman. A pro golfer. He was kind enough to mention me in a NY times article and called me his brother. Thus I have great appreciation for aussies. Great job.

·

Hello Nedspeaks - any friend of Marc's is a friend of mine. Tell me mate, I have been looking for a Virginian to to act as Ambassador to Australia - would you be interesting in taking up this Honorary role? It would provide you with all the same TEAM AUSTRALIA membership benefits and responsibilities as all other members. Let me know - SK.

·
·

I will be honored to take that role but First look at the article and see if you would Still want me to do that.

Google " Wife’s Illness Leaves Marc Leishman With New Outlook"
This was published in NYT. I am mentioned towards the end.

https://www.sentara.com/findadoctor/healthcare-provider/inayet-nadeem-8839.aspx
Here is my more link about me from my job.

You will then get to know me well and if you reoffer, I will happily accept.

·
·

I await your response SK

Fellow Melbournian here, just dropping by to say g'day. This is a great initiative.

·

Hi @naquoya - I have added your name to the members register. Good luck with the cancer mate - and yes 'power to the people through crypto'. Following. SirKnight.

·

Was hoping you would be thehomestead life, but didn't want to seem presumptuous. Will update register later in the week. Please resteem this post and go to TeamAustralia to support. Where in US are you guys again?

·
·

Thanks for that : )
I'm QLD and building a homestead

·
·
·

Sorry about that mate. For some reason I had the US in my head. Will be back to your blog tonight. SK.

·
·
·
·

All good mate. Im am one of very very few homesteaders in Australia thats not just dreaming about it : )
Any thing or help I can give you just let me know

·
·
·
·
·

Right thehomesteadlife - I'm back I originally thought you guys were @mericanhomestead - assume you have checked them out already. I know that many of us here are into sustainable living, gold, silver, prepping and Australia in general - you should be able to contribute quite a lot to TEAM AUSTRALIA - updated member list will be sent out in the next day or two. SK.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Sweet thank you very much...You may like to know...I was the guy that started Bullion stacking on you tube back in 2008... when I lived next door to the Perth mint . I went by the name The Omega Man back then, even became a dealer ( Omega Bullion ) and moved about 40,000 oz of silver and 5000 oz of gold , mostly to Europe and the US ....arrr those where the bullion days. I may make one last video on bullion
Cheers and thanks again

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Timing is good now I reckon - anyone left in fiat at the end of this year is in a bit of trouble I reckon. Maybe not so much Australian fiat though.

·

Easy - vote up, resteem, let me know where you are from - head over to the teamaustralia tag and leave a few comments and you are in mate. SirKnight.

·
·

sweet as done, im from broome wa

What a privilege to be a founding member of Team Australia. I am honoured and have resteemed and tagged posts accordingly... I just put up an introduction and followed all team members. Feel free to take a look! Thanks for your support: https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@scooter77/introduction-mark-2-a-taswegian-adventure-to-the-gold-coast

·

Hi Scooter - I checked out your post and upvoted. A could of things:

  1. @krystle is great isn't she - incredibly helpful
  2. You are too hard on your home state of Tassie - my family spent a week there last year - beautiful countryside and people - would gladly go back.
  3. I have used the introduceyourself tag about a dozen times now - introduceyourself every second day if you think you think it adds value to STEEMIT and your wallet.

Glad you decided to return - SK.

Awesome! RESTEEMED :]

·

No msg768 my fellow Sydneysider - YOU are awesome!

Kudos @sirknight for spearheading this.

Love Australia's topography (only been to VIC and NSW), its people and culture. Nature is amazing, the Australians generally polite and compassionate.

Happy birth day and congratulations Team Australia!

·

Hi Dreamiely - thanks for the comments - I have made you the 2nd honorary Ambassador to Australia for the Philippines - come to TEAM Australia and share the culture. Also gave you a few up-votes whilst I was checking out your blog. SK.

SK.

·
·

Yay! Thanks @sirknight! It will be an honor to be a part of your group.
Am-BAD-ASS-dressed! Oops, meant to say ambassadress :)

·

For sure irfo1 - green and gold all the way.

Congratulations - Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!

·

Must be my lucky day - we don't yet have a State Ambassador to Australia from Colorado yet either. Seeing you have shown your support for the movement here imagin8orr - let me know if you are interested. SK.

·
·

Thanks for the invite, unfortunately I'm not Australian. (Just a fan) I might be interested in designing he group flag tho...

I started following you to know you better. Feel free to connect with me @lulita 😀

·

And I want to get to know you better too lulita, though I still think we should see other people. ;) Following you andI have appointed you Florida's Ambassador to TEAM AUSTRALIA - hope to see you there. SirKnight.

·
·

I hope so too. Australia is on my traveling plans.

Congrats guys, I feel like this is something every country should do.

·

You bet they should - where you from?

·
·

Yeah I think it could be great for the community, I am from South Africa, but I haven't really seen a lot of South Africans on here, especially witnesses.

·
·
·

Well congratulations dewallenband, you are the new South African Ambassador to Australia - @themagnus is the Ambassador for Cape Town - so I do now one other South African if you want to say g'day.

·
·
·
·

Great :), what is our responsibility as Ambassador? Ps the link to @themagnus seems to be broken.

·
·
·
·
·

Hahaha sorry again @themagus

Same as any other member mate - as I outlined - but as an ambassador you can report also on how things in South Africa might effect Aussies etc.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Got it, thanks.

Oi! You left me out??? BWAHAHAHAHA how do I sign up for #TeamAustralia?

·

You are in for sure PoS - where you from mate?

Hey buddy! So happy to see your success on Steemit. I like to think I pushed you in the right direction :3

check out @contemplate , he is australian with reputation 25 and just wrote a great article on the australian education system.

TGD

·

whoops thought im on my private account, it's me TGD :D

·
·

ROTFLMAO - mate, this is serious cloak and dagger stuff - have learned a lot from you of course -appreciated. I will follow both of you now and will be sure to spice up your life with capitalism, liberty and freedom. Don't forget, you are the German Ambassador to Steemit Australia so you will be expected to drop into teamaustralia from time to time. : ) SK.

·
·
·

I will definitely help you to make Australia socialis... I mean great again! ;) But my contribution to #deutsch is also mainly to inform people about the community and inform the community about new people.

I can do that for #australia as well , if you do it for #deutsch ;)

·
·
·
·

Could I catch you in stemit.chat mate?

Thought it'd be worth another comment to say that I've just made my first ever witness vote for @ausbitbank. Thanks guys.

·

And I've given you a follow fellow team member!

·
·

Thank you @scooter77, ditto!

Great @sirknight. I'll endeavour to uphold the constitution and rules layed out and contribute quality content, as always.

·

Thanks mate - see you round teamaustralia. SK.

Is this where I start shouting "Aussie aussie aussie, oi oi oi!"? ;) Great job, and it's nice to see more Aussies on steemit. I think I might have been left out of the foundation list though!

·

Sorry mate - you are in - will ensure everyone knows about you in the next day or two. SK.

..constitution:
point 1 done......
point 2 will follow when i have "46"....i was thinking that,when i started with Steemit about a bit more than a week ago....to introduce myself when i have 46...

·

I just meant introduce yourself in the comments to other Aussies - have a little chat get to know one another - like we have done. Cheers SK.

·
·

ah i see...i know what you mean....
i will do an intro when i reach 46.....my age this year....and its so much,cant really write to everyone on the first day....dont want to be a douche bag,or something like that.....
time will come ,people can come towards me too....im easy going.......
Rome wasnt build in one day.....

im sure everybody here is thinking the same and we all gonna see how this little tree will grow to a huge Boab...and gonna stay for good....
well done...


NSFW (maybe)

is there something i should be doing for that

Just to clarify, are you all of the flag waving right wing white power Pauline Hanson supporting Aussies, or regular everyday happy go lucky easygoing Aussies?

·

Oh God! Waving the Australian flag and supporting Pauline Hanson makes Australians a certain type @azurejasper?

Do you mean like, proud Australians who want a safe and secure Australia with heaps of efficient coal power generation so poor Aussies can afford to pay their electricity bills?

Is it those Australians you despise?

·
·

Hear, hear ozmaga! A fine and suitable reply sir. It is this type of passion that belongs in TEAM AUSTRALIA - would you consider becoming a member? SK.

·
·
·

I'm mainly into politics and my views and facts will probably upset a few @sirknight. I think I'd create too many waves. Thank you for your support and welcome though. I just came here to see who else was here.

I'm following you already!👌

·
·

Despise? Don't have a crap attack there fella, just wanted to understand what this whole thing was all about.

·
·
·

Well you were alluding to the "horrible" Australians.

I'm just asking you to point out exactly why Pauline Hanson supporters are bad!

Instead of denigrating and disparaging Pauline Hanson and proud Australians, point out why they're the bad Australians, as you alluded to initially.

There's no crap attack @azurejasper. I'm not an emotional snowflake. I like to deal with facts. If you have no facts, you should take back what you initially posted.👌

·
·
·

Here is a photo of Pauline Hanson with two White Power racist Muslims @azurejasper. One of them is drinking a glass of white milk.

Can you see it?

·
·
·
·

There is something green behind Pauline, on her shoulder, I think it is ... wait.... it's PEPE, praise KEK.

·
·
·
·

I think everyone fears extremism... not sure why you're so aggressive though. Despise .... Horrible Australians..... These were your words.... I'm gunna leave you there cause I'm really not following. Steem on

·
·
·
·
·

Well you accused me of being a white power racist @azurejasper.

There are low IQ ANTIFA morons engaging in violent attacks against anyone they think is a Nazi.

So, of course I'm legitimately very angry at the aspersions you have cast.

·
·
·
·
·
·

No accusations made. Not sure how you felt I accused you of anything. And as I said, everyone fears extremists (eg fanatics about anything). I know I do. No aspersions cast. Either. Steem on

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

You actually did accuse all Pauline Hanson supporters of being Nazi's @azurejasper.

Just to clarify, are you all of the flag waving right wing white power Pauline Hanson supporting Aussies, or regular everyday happy go lucky easygoing Aussies?

And what happens then is low IQ ANTIFA goons go out and violently attack peaceful patriotic Australians, who proudly support One Nation Australia.

You are fomenting violence!

·

I'm the happy go lucky type.

·
·

Me too :)

·
·

We are all happy go lucky types here aren't we jeff. Hope you are well mate - thanks for popping in with an early deflection on this one mate. SK.

·
·
·

Indeed, as you have said and from what I have seen so far all the Aussies on here are the happy go lucky type.

·

Of all the wonderful and amazing things Australia has to offer - your first comment is 'flag waving right wing white power Pauline Hanson' - and then you wonder why @ozmaga gets defensive - trolls are not welcome at TEAM AUSTRALIA. But you might be if you can be civilised @azurejasper. SK.

·
·

Steem on sk

·

Thank you tomekk - you looking to be an Ambassador mate?

·
·

Would be a privilege sir.

Just stumbled on this via @shellyduncan's post and want in. Batemans Bay, NSW here.

Good initiative. As a fellow Aussie happy to support.

·

By the powers vested in me as Secretary of TEAM AUSTRALIA - welcome @speda - you are officially a member. I will notify the team of your membership over the next few days. I am already following and I am looking forward to your first post mate - where in Australia you from? SirKnight.

·
·

Thanks, but as far as posting I prefer staying under the radar. You guys will receive my support in the form of up-votes

·
·
·

I saw you didn't have any articles and wanted to thank you for your up-vote earlier on my Roof Hampton article :-) Cheers!

·
·
·

He mate! Thanks heaps for your upvotes. I came here to thank you and also let you know that your voting power is down in the red area! It's best if you maintain it above 75%. If you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to help! :]

·
·
·

Can I ask you to check out my blog?

·
·
·

gday mate,it wasnt easy to find you in the first place and where to look.
i want to say thank you so much for your upvotes and support.i hope you enjoy the posts and not get bored.
