No ugly banners today, maybe if we explain to them in a mature way what's best for the site like Alex did, maybe they ll listen.

Re: Forum & Database Update

I continue to repeat (and this will be my last post here, because we are still talking about everything and nothing waiting for what will really happen) that an excellent Forum is made by the members.
Not only if they are competent and have a collection of one million aircrafts or one thousand scale dioramas or if they have posted ten thousand photos on airliners.net and jetphotos.net, but also (and especially) if they are polite, nice, friendly and they have the right passion to manage the forum of their own. The owner is who has bought everyhting, but the members are the real power of it.
It is normal that, if all the members that i respect and admire, the members who i love and of which i am a friend (even personal), the members who are my family, the members who have the real passion for our hobby... if all these members are starting to go away, i will not remain in a forum where who argues all the time, who always finds a way to try the dispute, who wants to be a court jester will be the only point of attraction!
Ciao to all.

Nice too see that my petition to MAS was heard and the ugly banners are gone. Still there on DAC!

I have also been quietly stripped or my Administrative powers here and on DAC today after my posts in this thread.

Well they didn't have to technically, as I resigned 2 months ago.
But in the mean time I did help a few members and posts when they needed me as a friendly gesture.
But yes! A notice would have been nice-er.

Re: Forum & Database Update

Respect is a two way street, members expect the new management to be respectful and management also expect the members to be respectful.

Too bad some of the key members quietly rode their horses off into the sunset, I'd pay a dollar to hear their side of the story.

Bravo, another great update from MAS Media and co
Are there even any admins now other than the new owners?

Wings900 is turning into a shambles. With no decent management, it's all going to go badly wrong.

The new owners clearly don't believe in right of speech, no wonder we're seeing people leaving.

Alex kindly helped me and authorised some of my posts as the Wings900 team was not quick at authorising, although I am paying for the service.

Re: Forum & Database Update

I agree, they could've dropped you a pm or something.
If you click on view forum leaders, you're still under the admin section.

Well, Thank-you!

And management if you're reading this, Alex did an excellent job keeping the site going.
He's always been fair to everyone and He's a reasonable guy, please keep him in mind when you need help, advice etc. with the site.

Re: Forum & Database Update

Before anyone suspects I had died-i can confirm I am alive and well despite the Aussies kidnapping me for three weeks and forcing me drink copious amounts of Crown Lager!

Now I'm going to admit this thread was a bolt out of the blue-but i also think some of us have been taking the hysteria pill. Alex made a good point-this happened two months ago and none of us (not in the know) noticed it! Can i suggest we see where the site goes and then if we are unhappy and not being listened to-we talk with our feet...and walk!

I have to agree with an earlier post, the new owners seem clearly interested in the database which is concerning that this is the focus. My concern is that they are looking to make money from it (as businessmen/women rightly should). This however goes against what the site has been about since I have been a member.

I'll admit alarm bells are ringing at the loss of several key characters/moderators. What the new owners may not realise is that W900 was unique in that it largely self moderated. The lose of these guys makes me feel there is something we may not be aware of yet. Fingers crossed I am wrong.

Outside moderators who are not aviation nuts may be a poor choice. Time will tell.

For my part i'm going to watch and see what happens. I'm a bit disappointed that the users weren't made aware of this earlier. It would have been courteous i think but what's done is done.

For now i'm going to wait and see what happens and take it from there. And if we have to leave-i'm sure we will find another outlet
