As I said several months ago, we have a ton of members but only a few dozen are regular forum posters, others write only when they have a problem. Also, the greatest members have left the forum.

its not about the number of posts....its about who posts them, granted they may not be positive post, but those of us that are still here are whats keeping this forum together, and if we keep loosing valuable people we are loosing the forums integrity. right now we need to worry about keeping who we have.

I'm a newbie here and to FSX and I read/post on various forums. I have tried various sites and visit the ones that I like. One of the first things I looked at was how old were the last post. On some forums the last post was a year or two old, so I didn't go back. I don't like sites that take forever to load, are hard to find your way around, etc.

i know we did spend hours at a time, we would answer each others questions, share info, experiences, or just shoot the breeze. i just think flyaway is coming out of a hole, it cant be good and grand all the time, everything needs to balance out, flyaways time will come again, im sure of it Wink

OK Gents, enough of the forum dieing out. A forum is only as good as it's members,yes, a lot of the most experienced and respected members moved on to elsewhere and that was their choice and they are missed here, and the forum is a lesser place without them but we have to live with that! But it's up to us to make sure that FlyAway carries on, i know i have'nt been posting as much as usual but that's for personal reasons only and that stands for everywhere else i'm a member of.
This is the first forum i visited (as a guest) and was so impressed i had to join, the help and advice i recieved was second to none and although those people are now elsewhere(apart from Tailhook,who is deeply missed Sad ) we've got to keep it together!
I know that we have'nt got the core strength we used to have but there are still some excellent experienced members here who's expertise is invaluable, for example RadarMan who still mods the site although he has his hands full elsewhere, but still does all he can to help here, we should be grateful just for that because without him it would be total madness and full of spammers!
Belgeode is another one that springs to mind, i know he has'nt been around a lot lately but he's trying to hold US Air Virtual together at the moment so is a bit busy, but his FS experience is without question and is another asset to the site!
There are also others like Cheeks and VegasFlyer who have also been here for a long time who's help has been invaluable to many struggling their way through their first experiences of FS.
I almost missed out Warlord40, there, sorry about that, he's been around a while too and helped a lot of people Very Happy .
So gents, it's up to us to keep Flyaway a great place to be, i think it still is, but if we keep posting interesting stuff, then "If you build it, they will come" Very Happy
Ps those that remember Tailhook please PM me !

Not going anywhere... granted I am a little busy of late with USAVA and real life (in a new band)... but I still find time to stop by and check things out. My day would not be complete without Welsh's and Spider's posts... and everyone else of course, since I do look at everything!

Razz hiya welsh mate Smile I know I'm not a regular like I used too, but still drop by now and again to check up with the gossip lol. Last thing I read was that Microsoft are making another flightsim (no date set as far as I know) but I'll probably be here a little more often as no doubt I'll need help, and also might be able to offer help with it's upcoming, but anyway's, good to know your still frivolous in the forums hahaha Smile

Hey Warlord40, i'm like a bad smell i never go away Very Happy ! You may think it's gone but then..........bugger, it's back Razz ! There are a few of us that are still here but not as active as we used to be like Cheeks in the post above,hiya Cheeks good to hear from you too Very Happy , Tailhook is still here too but he's been very quiet since before Christmas. I have'nt posted any shots for a long time because..well..there's nobody to see them Rolling Eyes . As for Microsoft Flight, well, we'll see what happens with that, i hope it's not another FSX that nobody could use when it came out. If it's a supercharged FS9 with FSX water (not the rubbish land the world is a desert textures) it might be ok Very Happy .
Don't be a stranger now!
