Where's the vote taking place? What are the reasons for voting no? I think it's nice to have the choice of posting here or elsewhere. Anybody who votes no has the choice of not posting here. Sounds reasonable to me.

Captaingomes,

The vote is taking place on the main Airliners.net page.

Well I give Johan enough credit, not to put to much into a straw poll on the front page.

And I trust that he remembers all the clutter problems he elimated from the General Aviation forum when he created this forum and the others back in 1999.

If he gets rid of this forum, he will be back with the clutter problems he had four years ago.

That won't do him or any other user any good.

I wonder how many voting against, where here in 1999. I don't think too many.

The other thing about this poll is that I don't recall Johan making an anouncement he was taking a poll. Therefore a lot of people, including myself where not aware that it was going on until you you brought it up, Alessandro.


I think that may have skewed the results somewhat and is an indication that this is not a drop the hammer on the forum if it loses survey.

I dunno about that Jwenting.....

It is kind of nice to be able to refer back to earlier posts.


It would definately save Johan some hard drive space though.

If it does go, there is nothing to stop one of you starting up a newsgroup on Yahoo or wherever. Just ask Johan for enough time to direct everyone (who only use the non av ) to go there.
Myself.... where will i put all my jokes...

And if that isnt enough reason to close it i dont know what is!!

While I agree that it gets pretty pathetic in here at times, it does serve a purpose in keeping drivel off the civil av forum.

It will be amazing to see the number of posts that drop by people if this forum goes. And we will see who actually posts in the Civil Aviaton Forum etc.. But I would rather keep this forum. Some of us actually have worth while things to say. But if it got shut down, I would not be very upset at all. Life goes on.

uh... Was it something I said???

Seriously, though - I'm curious to know the reason behind the poll in the first place. If I were to guess, I might think there's a concern about overwhelming the server(s). Perhaps, the feeling is that many topics (...and some of the resulting responses) are probably somewhat meaningless and it's becoming difficult to justify allotting so much resources to maintain this forum at the expense of other more relevant aviation related areas of this website... Contrary to the initial idea.
Personally, I'd like to see it stay. However, I suspect this poll may give some of us something to think about before we start a topic or post a response.
As a member who sometimes post silly, light-hearted responses, I know I've opted to refrain from posting to a thread because I felt doing so may offend some, or, be viewed as inappropriate. Although, there have been times when I digressed. For that, I offer my apologies :-]

Regards

If it goes then there will just be loads of non-av posts in other forums, mainly Civil Av I guess.

I don't know one forum on the net that doesn't have an off-topic forum. I know a lot of forums. Why do they all have an off-topic forum? Obvious. That's why this one needs to stay.

Instead of getting rid of this forum, why not just make the rules tighter to stop people causing trouble?

I voted for it to stay. I wonder how many people clicking on that poll have never even been to the non-av forum (or any of the forums for that matter). For a long time, when I first started surfing a.net, I never even read the forums. It was about a year after I started surfing here that I started reading the forums. It wasn't until about 4 months ago, when I had a post moved from Civil Av to non-av, that I started reading this forum and found it entertaining (to use Heavymetal's phrase, "Sport-bitching" can be fun sometimes, while still getting your point of view across).

Not to sound elitist or anything like that but, since the First Class memberships help Johan pay for this site, then maybe he should poll us separately to make his decision. There are many paying First Class members who post in this forum and would not be happy if it were to disappear (I know I got my First Class membership because of this forum)!

I say get rid of it. All the trouble on this website is here and most of the trolls and flamers reside in this forum and no where else. There are plenty of other websites dedicated to politics, religion, and the other topics that some here must flame as soon as they see.

My thought exactly. There is an old saying that makes as much sense now is it always have: If you don't like it don't use it. It really really is that simple. I cannot see how this forum can harm anyone who never visits it in the first place. Asking for something's removal that in no way affects you is just plain stupid and very egoistic.
