I notice than now more than ever, the FSX forum is flooded with "HELP" threads on how to do this and that, how to install a plane, where the root directory...and many other really basic questions of people just being introduced to FS or with little computer knowledge (actually knowing directory structure and a drice C is really required).
Some other have basic help requests on flying lessons, navigation, ils or vor not working (meaning how do you use it) etc...
In ealier versions of flightsims, it was a hobby for people already with some knowledge of aviation. Popularity of the game makes consumers buying FSX and wanting to fly overnight.
But really in the past the FORUM was more interesting, with many contributions, ideas, deep tweaks, uncommon details of the game revealed, news on add-ons, experiences, etc.
Experienced programmers and editors or developpers actively participated, it was rich conversation...
Now the Forum is very boring sounding more like "babies crying that need help"
I notice that a Begginers Forum was created but people (begginers) dont seem to use it.
So I had the idea of suggesting a Forum called something like "Experienced Users Forum" where you could exchange all sorts of interesting things on the game on a high level of understanding, and politely advising readers that this Forum is not a Help, Tutorial, or Please this and that Doesnt Work, but a place to give information rather than to take.
It would make a place of interesting reading as was this forum in the past.
