Hi folks,
Currently - there are 403 Visitors on this forum - compared with 37 members. I suppose that if a statistics expert made calculations he/she would come to the conclusion that hardly anyone in the world, cannot to afford to spend $5.

Just think all of you visitors - what added advantage you would recieve, by being a member.
Where I reside, that $5 dollars, would just about purchase one pint of beer.

I would add, that I am in no way connected to the administrators of this excellent flight simulation web site.

You are right. There are more visitors than members here, but I think that this happens in every webiste. There always more visitors than members. The visitors may think "Why should I pay $5 to be a member if I can just be a visitor and read and write posts freely?"

And if they want to download some aircraft, they just can crate an account is Avsim.com for free and download stuff there. However, if you want to download some aircraft or scenery (etc) here, you have to pay to be a member, and then download the aircraft or whatever you want.

But being a member is more like a "respectful" way of being here. It's much better and it shows that you care about this website.

Guest

you have to realize, you are asking people to spend money on stuff that is available for free everywhere else. You have to have something unique before asking people to pay. my 2 cents...

I haven't found a site that is more helpful than this one. Yes you can get the help without joining from the friendly posters here and there are better sites for downloads, but for me this is my Flight Sim home and that's worth the five bucks to me.

One thing a guest can't do is private message. I just sent a file to a member by getting his email through PM. That is at least one advantage of being a member, I know I won't post my email address on an open forum and get a bunch of spam for my trouble..

The guest that do post there email address are opening there front door to the spammers.

This is probably one of the best flight sites that I have registered. This is a very diverse culture and people here from all over the world. The stuff that I have learn't plus the no-cd crack is worth the $5 (about 3.00 in english money). IMO that is great value for money.

This is the only flight sim sight I post on. As I said in an earlier post, this is my Flight Sim home and the caliber of the members is one big reason why.

I agree. I may post on support forums for products I have purchased, but this is the only FS forum That I hang out on. I don't consider myself an expert even if I've been using FS since version 1.0, but occasionally, I can help someone who is stumped.

There are many others that provide help here, as well. So, if anyone feels that it isn't worth five dollars, I feel sorry for them.

The best $5 I ever spent was joining this wonderfull community. Ever one is friendly and very helpful with passing on there knowledge.

I totally agree with you.

Me too. I am a member of the FTG community of Virtual Airlines, and their forum is very friendly too, but I don't post too much. In fact, I only look at the people's questions and screenshots. Sometimes I go to check the Avsim, iFDG, and FS2004 forums, but I'm not a member of any of those webistes. So, this site is where I hang out the most. I'm 98% in the Fly Away Forums and 2% in other forums, where I'm just looking at questions, and not asking anything.

roger123,

Only 37 members on-line, you mean. The home page shows that as of today, there are 62,091 registered members. That's a pretty healthy number. I don't think Fly Away is hurting for members.

Here's my take on it: The web page states that I can post without being a member, and that's all I want to do. That's the intention of the website owner. I figure if it's okay with Mr. Fly Away, it's okay with me. I drop by here to see what's being said about FS09 and to share my experiences. I never download anything, and I don't want to. I answer a lot more questions than I ask.

I would suggest that if no one was allowed to visit and post without registering, a lot fewer people would visit, and even fewer would register. And these occasional "members-only" diatribes make the place a lot less friendly to visitors.

If you want to donate $5 to this site, good for you. I donate my money to a number of charitable causes and my blood to the Red Cross, and I hope all of you will do the same. But I won't think any less of you if you don't donate blood or money to charitable causes; I don't want to know if you do or if you don't-- it's none of my business.

Just like it's none of your business if choose to accept Fly Away's invitation to post here for free. That's between me and Mr. Fly Away.

Get over yourselves, guys. It's a free website with a voluntary donation for access to some areas and functions.

I don't think anyone suggested it was any of our business if you posted here for free, at least speaking for my self I think that is your choice. I think you will have to admit questions by guests are answered just as quickly here as those who are members. I don't see anyone saying oh that's a guest, ignore them.

Get over our selves? All I seen was members giving the reasons they were members, my self included. Just as you have reasons not to join we have reasons we joined. There is nothing self centered or egotistical in that, we simply found value in joining. We have a common interest and we share it.

I've seen your posts and you are a good poster. Lets leave it at that instead of creating something out of nothing.

Warkawk,Guest and all Others......
I did not expect this thread to extend to two pages. I assure you that I did not intend to "stir things up."
I just thought that it was a point of interest.
No offence was intended.

Roger123, none offense was taken. I understand the purpose of your post.

Now, I want to make an statement about Guests, and I hope no one takes this as an order...it is just my opinion.

As we have seen before, many Guests wrote posts insulting or telling the members that they were completely right about something. I don't want to say who did that and what was the purpose. Nowadays, there are still some Guests that insult the members. Those members are, generally, the ones that don't want to pay because they say it doesn't make any sense paying to be a member if they can easily post and read messages from members too. There was a huge discussion about this before, and some members decided to leave Fly Away for good, because of the Guests insulting the members and insulting them.
From that day, we members, learnt that some "Guests" are the "bad" guys in the Forum, and we ignore them. Guests are now not allowed to posts in the Screenshots Gallery because of too much cursing coming from their mouths. If you check the "Site Bugs and Errors" Forum, lots of people helped to clean up the Screenshots Gallery because they were infected with bad words coming from Guests.

I, personally, know that we have many Guests that are very helpful here, and they don't insult the members because of some reason.
Those Guests that do insult the members are not adults, I'm sure. Why? Because they posts with an immature tone. Young people are entirely welcome here. Moderators and Fly Away don't want them to be immature by insulting the members.

Again, this is just my opinion. Every single person has different opinions.

There are two types of guests. The ones like Guest Ed that actually contribute to the forum, substantially. Then there are those who only want free help from others and contribute absolutely nothing.

Just being on this website helps due to advertisements on it. $5 is nothing, the owner of the website more than likely earns (much) more than that due to the advertising.

It's not a question of how the site makes money. There are guests who make a positive contribution and provide a lot of useful information. I think they are great.

The ones who post the following are the ones I can do without.

1. Where can I download <payware> for free?
2. Can someone send me disk 4 of FS?

I don't think there is anything in your post that should stir anything up. Personally I don't read a post based on whether it's a member or not. It's the content of a post that counts. All honest questions that I can answer I will. As with any site there are always a few who will abuse it and those I mostly ignore.

I have been posting on web sites for over ten years, it goes with the territory.

I don't want to run-off anyone from becoming a member, and not to be the sour egg, but most of the same stuff here is avaible at other FS websites. But the forums is still well worth the $5. I think it's a little cheap actually.

Did you click on that link they told you to go to? If not then you may have to ask flyaway to send you another e-mail.

Good question, you know on the main menu for flight sim you have create a flight and all that sort of stuff i think, you go to multiplayer and it should come up with an option saying host'client setting and if you wanted to you could host which is what i am going to try and do or you can join (enter i.p. adresse where it says.

Once i get it up and running if i can do that then i will give you the ip adresse.

Pro Member Trainee
Nathan (Natty) Trainee

I dont know if this will work but try it any way,

IP adresse (hell boy)
connection port (23456)

Airport- heathrow (EGLL- LONDON)

Password- you dont need a password.

I have it up and running now and you just go to join on the session saying hell boy and you should be in but dont count on it beens as it is my first time that i have established a multiplayer connection/host.
