I'll chime in here too!Being a spankin' new painter (just celebrated my one month anny), its painful not to have the SS forum I'm so comfortable with.As most of you know, I'm a refugee on Flightsim's forum (But its great over there too...don't take that the wrong way please), and would love to take my shots of my creations "back home" to the AVSIM SS forum!Hope to have a few more new 737's for you guys to post inargural screen shots at AVSIM when it reopens! :)Regards,Steve Drahttp://www.sgair.net/images/member_name_ba...steve_small.jpgDownload my repaints at:http://ftp.avsim.com/library/esearch.php?D...abek&CatID=Root

We will consider the reintroduction of the Screenshot Forum at some point after our new Library Server is commissioned. This process involves us physically installing the server at our colocation facility, and then moving around 100GB of data between several of our servers. This will then allow the server you are currently using (which is right now serving both the Library and Forums) to be dedicated to the Forum system, which, we hope, will provide faster and more fluid access to the entire forum system.Watch the front page for news on the new server.

I can't believe that every small and big fs site has an SS forum and the big and mighty AVSIM cannot support one.I miss the SS forum sooooo much.Lets hope that it will come back soon.Cheers

A fair answer to that will be "We will see". Personally, I hope we will, since it will reduce administration and increase reliability.--M

The fact is that AVSIM's forums are the busiest in the hobby, and, right now, we are finding that the forum software, while it has scaled reasonably, has been suffering growing pains in attempting to deal with the load. Given the amount of resources the Screenshot Forum uses, it was the logical candidate to remove until such time as we could support it properly.Note, I said "consider the reintroduction of the Screenshot Forum". That particular choice of words is deliberate.

It would be a shame to not have the SS forum return. Just out of curiostity, why is the Avsim staff considering it's permanent removal?Tim13
