Thank you to AVSIM and mods

Recommended Posts

Avsim,I Just wanted to say thanks and I mean it sincerely, for deciding to clean up this forum by tightening your rules on trolling or flame threads. It was definitely getting old trying to make my way through dozens of useless posts with the intent of simply trying to find threads that benefit those who use and enjoy FS. Thanks again to all of you at AVSIM.Respectfully,Jeff

I haven't noticed anything unusual myself. What cleaning are you referring to? This place seems like the usual forum to me??________________________________________________________________________________________________Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' | Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.20Ghz | 2 GB Super Talent DDR2 800 | Big Typhoon VX | eVGA 8800GTS @ 565/900 | Seagate 2x320GB SATA RAID-0 | OCZ GameXStream 700W | Creative X-Fi | Silverstone TJ-09BW | Matrox Triplehead Setup

Astrodave, as I see some topics were locked and will move down soon, so this may be considered as cleaning.I agree, there were too many long threads here on the same subjects. Thank you, AVSIM.

Ditto on the yakity yak thats goes on here, seems like you cant get info without a whole lot personal opinions in here . one of the reason im looking for another forum site that truly wants to help without all the junk with it.i love this site and dont get me wrong, but i cant tell you how many times i wanted some info and the thread went from needing info into a whole completely yakity yak session.when i log on to this site its like logging onto a political site, and all im needing is simming info, tired of digging through potatoes to get to the meat. im sure in time it will get back to what it was created for and that is simming.my humble opinion only...Robert

I'll add my thanks as well. I enjoy a good debate but it was turning into the Jerry Springer Flightsim Show.Ian.

I agree. I was somewhat relieved to see my inflammatory comment removed. Glad you guys are cracking down.

When there are passionate simmers there will be "disagreements". And there are no milestones with the latest round of bickering. Nothing rivals the Pro-Pilot war back in '97 here. There is still a small group of "survivors" from that war who live on an e-island called the Pro-Pilot Forum. I hear they refuse to surrender and they have a 99 year lease. LOL. But it is the Internet and a few simmers take comments and issues waaaay to serious. Serious is the doctor telling your wife it is stage 3 breast cancer. Have fun, lighten up and watch history repeat. LOLThe AVSIM moderator's are great at clipping the lows without controlling the content. Good job guys! :)Bob...

>Bob, ah yes, those were the days, weren't they? :)Your welcome Geoffrey. I wonder if many members are aware that besides being a private pilot you are also a world class violinist? What a wonderful community we have! :)It is amazing Tom that so many simmers have been here for ten years or more. And I still remember the excitement and anticipation of the Pro-Pilot version that offered a bar raising feature. Imagine, flying through a cloud with volume! Ah..... pop... I just opened a Tawny Port. :) Bob...

I threw a lot of the stuff that was garbage out but couldn't part with Pro Pilot for some strange reason. I think I may have actually purchased a Vodoo 3D just to play it. Or it may have been one of the others....just can't remember.

I can certainly understand cleaning up some of those threads, and I admit I added my fair share of manure to the pile.But I am confused about why one of my posts which was nothing but a simple thank-you to Phil for his latest update was singled out as well. Am I that hideous that all of my posts are targets for deletion regardless of what they say? If so, why not just ban me? (and while you are at it, there are some other posts of mine you missed...)

Not sure how I've missed this, but you're welcome.I may be newer to the community than some, but I've certainly been simming for a long time, and I'm happy to give back in any way I can.One thing I'd like to do is to keep better track of the original posts that may have gotten changed in some way, so that I can specifically respond to any questions on content.

You hit it on the head for me Bob! I was diagnosed with cancer last year, went through 6 months of chemo and bought FSX and a new PC to help me to "escape" through all of that. FPS/Vista/Bashing didn't mean squat to me. Well, it's over now and doing fine and had a blast flying FSX...of course I was on some pretty heavy drugs at the time .Wes:-scatter

Amen and three Hail Mary's!I started to drift off the forums. Got Fsfx and dual core, and am getting fun out of it.I know not all of us are as fortunate, but some of the 'hate' stuff was way out of proportion.I have said before, that I am an educator and could sense 14 year old males starting to play mischief!!Ok we may be all 14 year old kids with our toy, but those of us around since early C-Serve forum days, have mostly learned that we are great at breaking what works, and mostly fixing what is broken, all with this excellent forums help. It was done with humour!e.g. I 'just' discovered that keypad moves view around vitual cockpit with shift spacebar resetting view.What will I discover next year???

I have also just discovered that FSX allows you to place free waypoints, a substantial improvement over FS9 as you can now set up Lat/Lon waypoints e.g. when plotting NAT tracks. Maybe this is old news but it's a significant improvement IMHO.
