Hi Matthew,

Read Stephen and Alain reply s to this post http://forum.avsim.n...erent-approach/ no ranting there at all and I think you could have added your thoughts to that topic than make this new one.

 

They both sum up the current state very well.

 

But anyway Cheers to you also Matthew. Good to see you here.

@yztpilot -

 

Not sure if you were responding to my post (linked above). If so, I basically agree with you. You'll note that I expressed some hesitation about posting, and went ahead only because I thought that an example of reconciliation might be... ah... constructive.

 

But yes, I agree that things are unlikely to change.

 

So help us out. What are the other ways in which you'd like us to be constructive? It might be constructive of you to provide a little more detail about what you'd prefer to see.

 

Thanks and all best!

 

Alan

I'm not sure I understand what's going on here....WE have to be constructive?? Please clarify it if I don't understand.

 

What did we default on so badly that we have to amend on.....guys who are here have been kicked out or decided to come here because of the treatment they received at the other faculty....and WE should move on...from what??

 

I've always praised Orbx products for being some of the best scenery for FSX.

 

I wish nothing but the best to Orbx but the facts are the facts and I am not welling to sweep them off under the rug just because some peoples maybe worry about their future.

 

Reconciliation is fine with me, I'll be the first one back in line to buy their products if they (he) is welling to say he screwed up, but guess what....the ball is in his camp not here.

100% agree,

but the big Stumbling block is....

 

"Reconciliation is fine with me, I'll be the first one back in line to buy their products if they (he) is welling to say he screwed up, but guess what....the ball is in his camp not here."

 

Lets hope "he" can be sensible and we can all "move on" and all be in the same place again, that would be nice.

But you know, in your heart of hearts, that ain't gonna happen. What would be nice if WE (the sensible, forgiving and moderate ones) could let it go. WE all know that it's getting very boring.

Cue "If you think it's boring, don't read the threads" posts.

My 10c :Peace:

Let go of what??

 

Please can somebody explain to me what I (some of us) have to let go of.....I'm serious, what do I have to let go of....just don't say "Let go of" and not explaining what I (others) do have to let go of???

 

Well, I think I did let go of something as I am not spending one more dime (10c) at the other faculty, is that what you are all talking about....letting go will mean that I have to spend more money at the other faculty....hell no, good luck with that.

 

I will never hold it against somebody if they want to spend their entire pay check on Orbx products after been banned or else for no good reasons, I respect everybody's decision as far as buying Orbx product or not, as for me I chose not to.

 

How does it goes again... You make your bed, then you lie in it.

I do agree with the general thrust of this thread, but I think to start hinting at what people should/shouldn't post reminds me rather too much of a certain Antipodean website that was the raison d'etre for this forum appearing in the first place.

No disrespect intended but anyone here thing they are about to receive any form of apology or acknowledgement of wrong doing is quite frankly living in a dream world.

 

The only possible way you will get any apology is if ORBX are being hit in their back pocket by all the bad publicity and I am pretty sure that ain't happening.

 

The person responsible for starting this whole furore has quite likely forgotten all about whom he banned and for what reason.

 

I don't agree with the sentiment that people should just "let it go" it may just warn people that dealing with this company is fine until you get on the wrong side of them and then you may regret it.

For everyone here who is not banned and doesn't like us.....go away! And comeback when your banned for saying 'but I thought the last sale ever was last year in April'. Then tell us your thoughts and opinions.

 

Matt over here we have all been banned because we don't want to be JV and his B-Team's puppy dogs.

 

I like the scenery but won't spend another cent on them, which leaves me with one option :Nerd:

 

I haven't been banned. I've probably come pretty close, but so far... So less of the 'all been banned' please. :smile:

Of course everybody is welcome here, banned or not.

 

What Hendo is trying to get at (and he can correct me if I'm wrong) is the fact that some Orbx's customers unfazed by their new policy and the way they threated their past faithfull customers are trying to convince some of us (ex-faithfull customers) to let go of something (what ever it is) so we can start buying Orbx's products again, so if we the ex-faithfull customers start buying Orbx's products again the unfazed customers may start feeling better about Orbx's future....

 

The ones who may need to let go of something maybe the ones trying to convince the ex-faithfull customers to go back to Orbx...

 

As Bryan said..."I don't agree with the sentiment that people should just "let it go" it may just warn people that dealing with this company is fine until you get on the wrong side of them and then you may regret it.

Count me among the not-banned. I just prefer the ability to express myself freely, so I've settled over here and no longer visit the ORBX forums.

I just find it sad that I have to filter my self when trying to share news of exciting releases or announcements with fellow simmers. So what if a Carenado release is announced in the "general" forum at FTX. FTX releases are announced over at Carenado, PMDG and many more forums with great fan fare and excitement. I have avoided posting/replying over there as freedom of oppinion and sharing news between fellow hobbyists is clearly frowned upon. I am getting tired of the "any posts containing images of products other than ours, will be deleted with out notice" disclaimers. If all developers ditched this need to baracade themselves from the rest of the "competition" they could benefit from this hobby as a whole. Oh..... Right...... It's all about the money! Not the end user.

I saw that Hendo. You stand on a snakes tail, it will bite you. As those two posters found out.

And they seem to have an endless supply of padlocks.

Well let be constructive and look at them 3 posts and the replies.

EDIT:

Ooooooo within the last min all 3 have been deleted from there forums. Must have seen your post Hendo.

 

Well it's like this...

 

It's his forums and his rules, one of his replies stated the new "2012 terms of use" where given to all MOD's to in force, sort of... end of story no "if's or "but's".

They are his forums and he can make the rules as he feels. Posters can like it or lump it.

 

This is right, and he has every right to have his forums run how he likes. He pays for them.(well not true customers do though profit Orbx makes)

 

 

 

In the top post he did not get banned and Ian PM'ed the guy to warn him and we do have to give Ian credit for taking the time to do that. Nice one Ian.

The other two Jay did as instructed by the rules"term of use" he sets, that's jay job to do so again end of..

 

So thats it..... like it or don't post on his forums.

 

Simple.

 

Moved on......big time.

But I will never put one penny of my money in his pocket again and he can like it or lump it because that's my right. Orbx lost around £300 of my money this year, FSDreamteam gain.

 

Simple.
