Avsim Not Running

simflightlogoIt is not our habit of aluding to the competition, and least of all Avsim, but we’re getting so many emails and messages asking us about their forums that we decided to touch on the subject. No, we do NOT know what’s going on, but their forums are stil not accessible for many readers. Maybe they got swamped by panicking Avsim posters after the news of Aces. Or Avsim should have gotten a new tech guy before the old one left (there’s a call out for one). Who knows. We are certain they’ll get things back running again sometime in future. Meanwhile, all the news you need is on simFlight.com of course, and we even have excellent forums ourselves for you to discuss things on. Now, over to more pressing news……

i noticed a lot of folks are commenting about the forums and how AVSIM forums were not good or is not the forum out there etc… For a lot of folks, its not about the forums.

I have never considered avsim and simflight rivals for my custom. I have different needs from each and don’t think I ever made a forum post in avsim. That’s where freeware downloads come from, this is where I enter the screenshot comp (when I get time) or read news and sometimes reply to articles like this… I have to say that I also use flightsim.com from time to time as well, but it’s years since I posted there. My posting needs are fulfilled here… Thanks to all on here for making what it is.

I don’t go there often because I could never get the hang of that “threaded” forum system that they used.

When I went there just now to see what all the fuss was about I see a new forum format and that it is working (again?).

Hey, come on over to FlightSimX – we’re MUCH better than everyone else 🙂 Only kidding and the comments do raise a fair point. It’s time for the troops to rally. I think there’s a place for all of us – we all offer a slightly different take on our hobby – none is better or worse than any other. I attempted to create a web ring earlier, to link us all together, but there was little interest. I think some site owners are worried that by belonging to one, they’re sending visitors away from their site, without considering that… Read more »
