Alphasim Forums Gone

It was pointed out by readers that the New Zealand based Alphasim has taken its forum off-line. There are no further indications as to why, but speculations run high in the (military) flightsim communities on various forums. Their ‘Coppermine’ based photo gallery is also off-line. Aphasim has had its share of forum ‘discussions’, from both sides, and recently published a first product through Flight1. Their website is still on-line.
Update: it is now confirmed that indeed Alphasim has given up on supporting its users via their forums and they are closed now.

Try sending an email to “alphasim [at] alphasim1 [dot] co [dot] uk”, the published email address for Alphasim support issues. It will come back as undeliverable. (And yes, I did put it in the accepted format of “xxxx@xxxxxx.co.uk”)

i think it is a good decision, reading many forums, usually they are the favourite places for bla bla bla people and people talk badly about others, developers and more….the closed alphasim forum is another proof it’s better stay aways from “some” people….occasionaly there are good people but often old blatering people only. i am sure many will discuss on this but as someone says…Everyone who is incapable of learning has taken to teaching.. i know at least ten people talking on all flightsim forums that show they are all professional all perfects, very satisfied of themselves and always ready… Read more »

Frank,

Read the ENTIRE statement – which includes “Alphasim has given up on supporting its users via their forums”. “VIA THEIR FORUMS”…..entirely true, no speculation or interpretation required!

The reason for that decision is of course what causes the speculation, and Alphasim obviously can’t/won’t disclose that business decision.

Too bad, really, since the forums were an outstanding Alphasim feature.
