GMAX Support Forums - Where Did They Go!!!

Recommended Posts

The GMAX Support Forums seemed to disappear. Yesterday they were off-line. Today, there is some new website that has an Administrators side and a Personal WEB page side.Went through Discreet, but they don't seem to have a pointer to the forums either.So much for help from GMAX Support!!

I swear sometimes it's like I'm talking to myself! 0 views, 0 responses, yet doesn't this thread look familiar...http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/DCForumID9/2084.htmlMan, I sure hope they haven't lost the archived forum posts. It'd be a real shame if we have to start over from scratch -- there was a lot of great information there.

>I swear sometimes it's like I'm talking to myself! 0 views, >0 responses, yet doesn't this thread look familiar... Bill, the message counter won't register any 'hits' at all until at least one response has been made. Your message may well have been 'viewed' a thousand times, but until someone responds, the counter remains at ZERO... :(It's a "still-not-working-right-yet" feature of this web forum package... :(I agree with you as far as the archives at gmaxsupport.com!!! If those are gone, a whole lot of us are gonna be lost.Has anyone seen if the website has been spidered by google lately, or one of the other 'history' archive websites?

That makes me feel better, Bill! I didn't know the forums didn't register views until a response was posted. Good idea about the history sites! I'm going to check right now, but I'm not sure if dynamic sites such as forums can be cataloged easily. We'll find out! In the meantime, at least it looks like the poor frazzled web admins at gmaxsupport.com are working to get things going again.thanks,

Note that many web sites use a robots.txt file to exclude their forums from crawlers, especially if their forums are large (e.g. AVSIM's forums). So, if you don't see it archived anywhere, that's why.Peter http://bfu.avsim.net/sigpics/PeterR.gifBFU Forums Moderator[table border=2 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=1][tr][td][table border=0 cellpadding=8 cellspacing=0][tr][td bgcolor=#540000]http://bfu.avsim.net/sigpics/logo75t.gif[/td][td align="center" bgcolor=#FFFFF6]Bush Flying Unlimited"At home in the wild"Looking for adventure?
