We could, but we have to probably have different competitions for each version. X-Plane looks different from FS2004, and FS1998 looks different than FS2002.

"I would if only I knew how to make a screenshot."
I'd recommend downloading FS Berlin's "Screenshot Manager". Run it, minimize it, press "PrtScn" (times however screenshots you plan to take), go back, and all your screenshots are there!

Well alright I somehow need to get a hold of one of the admins to see if they like the idea? Maybe I can be the host or something and we can have different sponsers from payware companies?  Smile

For those wanting to take screenshots, try this:

Screenshot competition could work, but like SA006 said prizes could be more difficult. Good idea though  Smile

I think in general it is an interesting and good idea. Firstly, I don't think that the crew would get involved here. We could keep it unofficial, and just have a thread where everybody votes. We could make one person in charge who posts each month all of the entries which are emailed to him. Secondly, I agree that we don't need a prize, but rather do it for pride.

fellas, might i just recommend you look at other places...

Airliners.net is NOT a Flight Simulation site, and several other sites DO run monthly FS screenshot contests. I personally run the one for ProjectAI, and i can tell you its not as easy as it sounds. Just getting prizes is a chore and people ALWAYS bitch and moan about not winning.

It's the key above 'Insert', which is above the 'Delete' key.... which is above the arrows! Big grin ("Print Scrn")
