P.S. Apologies - I hadn't realised how many pages there already are in the thread - maybe this is already answered. I will check

No, it's really not. On the old site, what you entered in the "real name" field had text next to it indicating it would not be publicly displayed. People posted things relying on that anonymity, often involving sensitive information from their airlines. Now, I can find out the real names of several of these people, including several prominent current and no longer active members of the site (some of whose identities surprised me). Even those folks who haven't been on here in years have their names out there, and because they don't come on here any more, they have essentially no way to fight back against this. It's pretty easy to see a situation in which a breach of the previous promise not to reveal someone's name publicly could result in damage to that person, such as some of those folks getting fired from their airlines. Frankly, if that happens, DM deserves the lawsuit it would quite likely receive.
The fact that they went live with an update that reveals people's real names and doesn't provide any copyright protection for photographers tells you all you need to know about their attitude towards users' contributions to driving traffic to the site. Enjoy the 13-year-olds yelling about whether the 757 line might be restarted, folks, because that's soon all you'll have left.

It is with great honor to introduce you to the new Airliners.net which has been a long time in the making and something you've been asking for over the years. It's finally here and we're pleased to share it with you and we hope you'll enjoy it just as much as the previous site.
You'll notice the new homepage layout which contains all the regular features you're used to such as the Top 5 photos of the day, Photographers' Choice, banner news, Top photographers', Right Now in the Forum and the latest news. Search can now be accessed via the drop-down photo menu.
We've upgraded the Forums to operate off phpBB, which should make the forum experience a lot better for you especially when it comes to searching for topics. You'll notice also a like button for a photo now and you can also follow your favorite other members and friends.
As this was such a large task there maybe some bugs and no doubt you'll have questions about the new look site so we would like to use this thread where you can discuss the changes and any issues you may encounter. Our developers are monitoring the thread 24x7 and will resolve any bugs that are raised.
We are committed to maintaining our position as the #1 aviation photography site, and to continue introducing our talented photographers from over 171 countries to aviation enthusiasts around the globe.
Many thanks to the engineers and crew for their support and dedication to redesign. We could not have done this without you.
Lastly, We'd like to thank you for your continued support of our photographers' and the site and we trust that you enjoy it.
Enjoy the new site and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter!

The old forum had its faults (expansion of some posts was bad, esp the last two in each batch etc) but at least one could read lots of content on one screen. Now one can barely get one post onto one page needs to scrols and everything is just horrible to look at. Not agood change. Please bring back the old forum.
