AVSIM Announces System Wide Redesign

Recommended Posts

The management of AVSIM is pleased to announce that a total system redesign is underway. Our first priority is to do a complete remake of the file library system. That will be followed with a front page, and major functions redesign. Our goals are simple; clean up the library, add functionality and increase reliability. As we are sure that most users have noticed, the reliability of the library and the speed at which is serves our users are decreasing. We know that this is a function of outdated architecture and a reliance on backend systems that are much more hardware intensive than they can be by updating to today's latest technologies. We plan to implement similar changes within the AVSIM web site as well. Modern, fast, and reliable are our goals. Another significant goal is to converge user ID's and passwords. We want to have a user database that allows access to all functions, library and forums as the two most prominent examples, with one User ID and Password. Most importantly is reliability and speed. We know that of late things have been a bit "flakey", and our intent is to solve those issues and bring AVSIM into the 21st century in terms of design and ease of use. We will be keeping you up to date on these improvements over the coming weeks and will most likely announce the opening of wide area BETA Testing in some areas soon. Stay tuned for more news on this effort.

Thank you Tom for the news. I'm sure I speak for many when I say how much we appreciate the service AvSim supplies to us.It's easy to take for granted but were AvSim ever to go we'd miss it (and your good self) enormously. It's nice to see the service is soon to become even better. :(

Thanks Ray. We are working hard behind the scenes to make it a better experience. We'll eventually get there.
