Guest Use of AVSIM Contact Us System

Recommended Posts

There has been many abuses of the AVSIM Contact System by Guests visiting AVSIM.  Guests are using it to spam AVSIM with malware and spam advertising.  Some are using it to send "nasty-grams" to the staff with threats of violence or death and hide their name, AVSIM username, and e-mail address (a sign of cowardice).  This makes it difficult to turn these threats over to law enforcement agencies.  They also are using it for requesting support for commercial products even though the form clearly states AVSIM does not provide support for any commercial or freeware products.  If you need support for a product, you need to logon or create an account and submit your question(s) in the appropriate forum.  Some commercial developers use a trouble ticket system for official support and use the forums on AVSIM mostly for user-to-user support.  I have provided a link to most of the commercial and freeware developer's website where you can submit a trouble ticket.  This is located in the description of the commercial or freeware forum.  Just click on the link and you are there!!  Register for support on their site and submit a trouble ticket.

I have removed the capability for AVSIM Guests to use our contact system as it is being abused.  Guests should logon or create an account and post your question in the appropriate commercial or freeware forum.  Thank you for your cooperation.
