Hi Everyone,

 

I think it would be nice to have Tom's photo on the top right of the front page, maybe in one of the add spots... Click on Tom's image and it would open to a history of Tom and AVSIM. A lasting tribute to a man who dedicated many, MANY years to Flight Simulation.

 

 

RIP Tom, my condolences to the family... You are in our thoughts and prayers.

A good idea.  We will consider it.

Yes, just to say the picture is really nice - looks very fitting and appropriate.  A good tip of the hat to our fine leader emiritus.

It was a great idea by Michael Swannick for Tom's photo to be on each AvSim page. It's a constant reminder to us that without him AvSim wouldn't exist and we wouldn't be able to chat about our favourite hobby. We owe him a great deal.

 

I hope it remains for the foreseeable future. Thank you Tom. :Applause:

I think it should be a permanent fixture. Just having Tom looking at me from his photo is enough to make me feel like I need to behave myself!

I agree. For those of us who have been around for a few years, it is nice to still be able to have coffee with Tom every morning. :Cuppa:
