One of my screenshots has been commercialised--It's now on your pages with an 'X-Plane' logo slapped across it--Anyone know anything about this please?

Hardly answers the question. If you press the American flag at the base of the opening page of yourm forum you will find 3x Pic'/screenshots with FSX--FS2004 & X-Plane labelled on them.
The X-Plane pic/screenshot is mine and was submitted to your Screenshot display some time ago and to several other forums. I have the copyright, no one has approached me for permission to use it, and it appears on your forum pages as a commercial adverisment. Explanation please or direct me to the source. Thanks

Not answering the question was his point.

I really doubt that anyone will be doing anything about it, sorry.

Not to mention that claiming ownership to a picture is nearly impossible.

Don't know about that, it's one in a screenshot sequence of 60 consecutive shots (which no one other than I have) & run through a high preformance editor which brings the total screenshots in graded stages to around 210.
Can't imagine it was taken by anyone in X-Plane--some 'Toe-rag' in between at a short guess. Thanks for the reply--I'll check it out at X-Plane-Have a G'day

And tell me Clever lads--who in this world apart from me--can take anyone else in this world to the spot where the shots were taken?? EXACTLY to that spot?? With or without a GPS??? And the Judge as pillion passenger!
Lets leave it Lads--it's getting pretty silly---& see what the X-Plane boys have to say--It's their Logo thats been hijacked too--to appear in a so called Sim Forum site of all places.

Dubious activity of this kind is not out of the norm for Flyaway as has been indicated by past events.

They won't care, it's free publicity.

Here's the part that's making me angry, your accusing us, the community members, of the wrongdoing, Cheeks and I, or any other forum member here, have nothing to do with how the website is operated. Or what kind of logos/screenshots the webmaster uses.

If you really want an explanation, contact a FlyAway administrator.

Do not accuse us.

I do not think , nor have I suggested that either of you two are in Cahoots with whoever did highjack the photo. Read through this topic again boys and have a quick 'looksy' at your attitudes from your very first replies!! They are a bit 'Bullshie' to say the least & thats coming from 'No Flippin' Angel' as far as Bull goes.
One thing I can commend is the forums tolerance towards 'Free Speech' as others would have nipped it in the Bud a long time ago.
I'll get to the end of it--it started off as 'No big deal' but you've got my Goat.
Nothing personal I assure you--Take care Guys & Cheers

Should have posted it in the X-Plane topics it would have been the longest running subject in that side of the Forum for a couple of years now!! Cheers

(One last question on the topic) How come they've removed my brilliant photo from the X-Plane add???
