Well summer is back again. For those who have been gone at school for the past year, welcome back. And for those new comers welcome to the Flightsim.com Forums.
As most of you are aware, this summer is a bit special as the newest installment of MSFS is being released most likley sometime in mid July. So we should probably expect a bunch of newcomers to these forums.
In recent days, there has been a general problem with people not following the forum guidelines, and staying on topic. These forums are very versitile, as there are many topics for discussion. With this, I, ans I am sure the rest of the mods, admins, and users will keep everything on topic, and it should make everyones lives easier, and the forums a fun place to hang out and discuss things...
Ok...Forums and what they are for.
Outer Marker Forum..aka OM: Aviation discussion not neccecarily related to flightsimming,or other flightsim versions..ie FS2000, 98, 95, Pro-Pilot, FU series...etc..etc..etc. AND user feedback or concerns about the Flightsim.com site, or the forums.
