Why are screenshots being deleted in a screenshot thread?

Recommended Posts

firstly I would drop the attitude. they arent welcome around here.Second thos epost you found are most likely expired. there is a time limit on how long the pics stay on Avsim's server.Gary HayesLevel-D Simulations Development TeamNo im not a "real" pilot, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.P4 3.0ghz w/HT & FSB..Radeon X850XT 256MB..1 gig PC3200 DDR RAM..Sound Blaster Audigy w/5.1 THX

As Gary says, can the attitude. Even this post is in violation of screenshot forum rules--I've moved it to Hangar Chat in case you're interested in discussing it after you cool the attitude.The main reason jpgs disappear, especially in a search, is that Avsim doesn't host the screenshots indefinitely. Imagine the bandwidth. Less common are screenshots outside of the forum guidelines--either too big in dimensions, too big in size, or posted by commercial vendors or beta testers prior to an NDA release.In the MSFS forum, I will delete screenshots that are merely placed to show off a product. You may have noted that you included one in a recent GE thread that I let stay, since you were also helping to answer a user question.It's a fine line, and sometimes we make mistakes, but generally I hope that answers your question. Remember, Avsim is providing a great service on their own dime. Please ask your questions respectfully--Avsim doesn't ask for anything in return.-John

Thanks Manny,Sorry for the late reply. I've seen some have taken the thread as the opportunity to make their own agenda, so I have deleted that post and have locked the thread.-John
