Hey everyone,

Just thought of a question after visiting the new PL created by cowace2 et al....

How do you think the creation of a 3rd party PL will affect the official IL2/FB boards?

- do you think that fewer IL2/FB users will frequent this site?

- do you think if the new board is successful, that UBI might consider trying to "win back" the PL?

- And will you be frequenting the new boards? And if so, will you still check back here?

Tell us what you think!

It wont.

-- do you think that fewer IL2/FB users will frequent this site?

No.

-- do you think if the new board is successful, that UBI might consider trying to "win back" the PL?

No.

-- And will you be frequenting the new boards? And if so, will you still check back here?

No. I will not have to "check back here" since I will still be here.

- Tell us what you think!

I think that some people are suddenly taking themselves a bit too seriously.

Remember: you asked.

I think the UBI boards will always be here but people will go there. A few months ago maybe not but with all the ....changes..... I know I'll pop in on a regular.. I just hope UBI does the right thing and puts a link on the site...at least in the fansites section say at the top since it is a forum.... although on the main page would be better.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif An OT place is good to have..it was one of the things that initially attracted me to this forum. But for the tech stuff and comms from Oleg...whenever thewy become regular again...this is the place and will remain so .

These forums will remain here.The pilots lounge was closed IMHO due to a handful of people who could not carry on an intelligent conversation without flaming /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Most of the tech stuff I have learned about this game. I learned at SimHQ.

We set it up because of the lack of an OT forum. There is not competition between forums. We have nothing to gain by hosting it, other than having a PL again.

With any luck UBI will support our forum and this one can return to IL-2 speak again. If not, no big deal, the forum exsisted before the PL "reloaded" and will remain up even if UBI re-starts the PL.
