    AVSIM Donation

    That is exactly correct. When we set the system up, we inadvertently set the auto renewal to "on" and that was not the intent. So we started to get cancellation notices and decided that we had to go in and cancel all the future renewals that were about to occur. If you get a auto renewal now, please let us know ASAP and don't allow the renewal to take place.
  3. It is indeed a pleasure to announce AVSIM's 18th Birthday today. We have had our share of sad news this last week, but with the bad also comes the good. 18 years! Happy Birthday to AVSIM and all of our community members! Please head out today and celebrate in your traditional fashion! This post has been promoted to an article

    Words I need to share with our Community

    This comes in two parts; my health and the future of AVSIM to the community and our team of members, forum owners, etc. First, my health… To state it directly; I am dying. I am dying from a carcinoma that started as a tumor in my stomach cavity that enwraps my stomach feeder vessels, kidneys, liver, the major blood vessels of the area and which are so embedded and wrapped around the maze of blood vessels and nerves that there is no cure except that of delay. The carcinoma has spread to most of my major organs. I have been given a pessimistic short 90 days of survival up to a lifetime number of 365 days. Second, and most importantly, the future of AVSIM… The staff and I with others in the community are looking at the alternatives that will keep AVSIM alive and prospering for years to come despite / in spite of my missing good looks and glowing positive daily participation. We will be expanding information on the future of AVSIM in the coming days. This post has been promoted to an article

    As it was said in my first response; it is a matter of our selection when we set up the forum.

    No, that is a master setting controlled at the forum setup level, not by individual users.

    It is not an "odd" issue. It is a matter of selection; we do not provide guest access to all of our forums. If there are some forums that you want access to, asking you to log on using your existing account is not too much to ask.

    Thanks for the US Navy P-8a Poseidon. :)

    As a retired Northrop Grumman dude, I have a particular attraction to this plane... Thanks PMDG guys for bringing it out.
