New Forum Idea

Thu Aug 24, 2000 6:50 pm

Hey all!
I think that with all the new forums, there is still one forum missing to make this site complete. An Aviation Humor Forum. A forum where we can write jokes, have quizes, post altered plane pics and stuff like that.
Sure, why not just post it in the general aviation fourm? Traffic there is so dense, so some posts just dissapear in a matter of hours...posts like those with jokes and other less aviation-related stuff. A humor forum would be great, with a more relaxed atmosphere...that's what I think at least.

What do you guys and gals think? Johan?

Thanks for the support guys! Anyone else agrees with us that this place needs a humorous place?

Hmmm, the boss (Johan) is usually pretty fast in replying to posts, but he seems to have missed this one...what's up, doc? No, really, what do you think Johan? Isn't it a good idea?

I agree. It could replace the trip reports forum.

Hi all

I don't think that this idea warrants a forum of it's on.

These could easily be incorporated into the Non-Aviation Forum.

Yes, non aviation may be the wrong wording for this.

As for digitally enhanced shots, I personally don't think Johan has the hard disk space for this.

Maybe someone could set up their own site for this?

As for the Trip Reports. This will stay as it is doing well. Again, if you are not happy with trip reports, just bypass that particular section.

Regards to all

I think we need a general forum. This could incorporate everything from the non-aviation to the humorous forum that we all want. Regarding the altered pics, I'm not sure if it is such a good idea because once in a while somebody that wanders across this site will think that WestJet operates the 744 or that Air Canada has a concorde. And I'm not sure if the airlines would be terribly impressed or not.

I don't know, there's so much...I won't call it bullsh*t, but there's lots of STUFF in the non-av forum. Messages are posted here all the time. It's very easy for a joke-post to disappear very fast. It's way easier to make a new forum, hell I can do it in five minutes! As for the enhanced pics, I thought we could try to upload them to the net on our own spaces. There are lots of sites where you can upload stuff and use on the net. My pics are on www.stas.net. They offer you unlimited web space. It's very easy to upload things from your hard disk to their servers. This way, Johan's server won't have to be used at all.

So...? Come on, you can clearly see that we want a new forum...and if you can make a t/r forum, why can't you make a humor forum?
