Quite often these days I find that even after reading the forums for two or three hours I can't find a topic where I have anything to contribute.

They're out there. For the most part I'm flying FSXSE and Prepar3D now. Too big a PITA to maintain and fly DCS, although I do own several aircraft as well v2.0 (still in beta).

Back in the day, with the weekend that just passed, we would have wall-to-wall coverage of E3 and the just-completed FlightSim Expo 2018. But, I guess people are more interested in talking about Fallout, weight loss, and stock tips.

This site ain't what it used to be at all.

Well, I have a suggestion... wave

The members could all agree (unless SimHQ wants to enforce it) that for a set amount of time (say...3 months?) that there'll be no OT, only discussions related to gaming and simming. Just see where it goes, it doesn't *have* to be a permanent condition. The site will either become more active (and I think some believe that it will) or less active, in which case the OT stuff can be allowed to continue.

Weird idea coming from me, I know. But I'd respect it (assuming I'd have the choice).

I want the credit if this idea takes off. smile

EDIT: Anything military should still be allowed, as most sims are military related.

"Community Hall" has always been a forum where discussion about any topic (except PWEC stuff) is allowed. Nothing has changed as far as that forum goes for the past 18 years or so.

Concerning the E3 coverage, Luke makes a very valid point and my only answer to that is that it's simply not a priority under the current website management. Online forums change over time and sometimes they change a lot. It's just the way it goes.

Almost minute by minute. I miss those days... Hell, the front page hasn't changed in almost a year! (July 2017)
