I was about to say something here that might actually get me banned.

Re: Petition to bring back the previous owners - Please Read

Well, despite all the hate towards the site and its new owners, there's no denying the fact that this is probably one of the best model aircraft forums out there. Over 17,000 members does mean something, believe it or not. Yes, the database may have issues. Yes, the current owners may not be the best in the world. But I still believe this site is full of fantastic members who will continue to positively contribute to this forum. I hope this site will continue to thrive and hopefully push past the issues that are being discussed so we can return to the glory that this wonderful site once was.

I have to say, I'm purely amazed at the small revolt that has popped up in the last day. I spend about 32 hours straight on campus, and this is what happens.

I didn't realize that people had grown that jaded towards MASmedia.
Soooo... um, whats wrong with masmedia again?

Never said they didn't have their issues. I'm not happy about the Profiles being broken, and one of the pop unders had tried to put up some crap on this machine.

But the whole situation really escalated far more than I expected it to. That's pretty much what my post is referring to (unlike some folk, who don't understand that Sarcasm doesn't translate well via text formats...)

Sometimes I use machines where I can't add them, since I don't have the permissions to do so (i.e. School computers and such.) Also presents itself as a problem when I use wings on the phone (though I'm sure there is Adblock for that, I just got my first Smartphone last month, so still getting used to things.)

This presents a problem for other people too in similar situations.

All 50 of us sit around a table and drink a beer. (Root beer for the younger folk)

On a side note, we're only 7 away.

I just signed it, hope it makes some difference. I remember when I first joined here the airline logos were there and I added planes to my collection etc., but since late 2012? I just haven't bothered with it because I'm not really gonna use it without logos.

I just registered for that forum - I looked at their model database system and was very impressed .

Just tried registering myself, but apparently I already have an account. I'll probably start using it more now and you can import your Wings900 collection to DiMA which will save a lot of time

Re: Petition to bring back the previous owners - Please Read

OK, this thread got very long, very quickly, so I'm sure some of you believe things were better in the past. TBH though (and I know I'm a controversial figure) I'm not sure why people are so flustered? Forum's cost money to run and host, so having adverts etc. isn't surprising. The 'new owners' may be making money, but then so (hopefully) do most of the airlines we all collect miniature models of, business is business, it makes the world spin, so are the owners not entitled to make some money? Did the old owner SELL the forum? If so, he sold it to make money and he sold it knowing that in order for someone to pay for it, they'd have an expectation to make money, so he was already commercialising the site himself and therefore no saint in this field.

Maybe the old owners used to send boxes of chocolates to members each time they had an anniversary, is that the difference? I'd sign in favour then! Otherwise I'll relish in the fact we have a free forum, that is kept free by the adverts, and I'll accept that the cost of licensing for the database pics is very high and that I'll have to live without it.
