Hi All http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It seems that since the boards are getting a much needed overhaul, we will all be banned from the forum for 24 hours. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The question is: How important a part of your IL2 gaming experience are these forums? Since I mostly game offline these days, well, these boards have become very important to me. Its my lifeline to other pilots and their experiences.

So, your last chance to post for 24 hours to say how much (or how little) these boards mean to you . . . . But you better hurry http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Well it was suppossed to go down the 25th.

Well the 25th is half over where I'm located, and the other half of the world is 6 hours ahead of me, so when is this going to happen?

Like any of you guys would know http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

The Boards are very important to me. It's a humorous getaway from life for 1/2 an hour and also a place to connect and share.

Truth is - though I hate to admit this: I check in here every hour at least. That is when I'm not online at HL... Go ahead - mock me - I'm a geek but who here isn't? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I hope they keep it down until they make all the required fixes and updates. Personally, if it takes 3 days, so be it. Now may be a good time to visit and join the airwarfare forums if feeling chatty the next day or so.

Cya on the other side.

Well, I kinda hate to admit it, but I am pretty much addicted to these forums, just like I am to the game. Hell, I've tried to get into BIA and SH III--both look great and the little taste I had of them on and off the last month or so shows a promised indulgence with them at some point in the future, but right now I'm having too much fun with IL2.

I've been at the game and on these boards everyday single day since about two months before I registered--about Labor Day '04, even at Christmas and when I had the stomach flu last week(!), so yeah, I'm a IL2 game and forum geek/junkie.

Funny you should say all that, Steve. I registered at Airwarfare today so that I could post there instead of just lurking http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif


Aero_Shodanjo, yes, posting at 2 am is a good sign of an addiction http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Quite honestly, I don't care if it takes a couple of days . . . providing they get the search features working again.

I highly suggest the Airwarfare site as a temporary fix for your posting habits. Great site, and great forums with alot of familiar names http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well I must say that I will be most satisfied if we are talking about 24hrs. Remember last time?

IIRC it was 2-3 days. And I enjoy to visit the forums every day, if not to post, then to read.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Anyway. it's not that long.. and then we should, I hope, get more than facelifted forum http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif.

Not for me, BC http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif. However, the pages do seem to load faster.

Searching is even WORSE then before (now comletely out of work).
You now, a board without searching is like cippled beast... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

It seems alot more speedy for sure.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif But maybe that is because not so many people discovered its up yet? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I certainly hope they fixed the slowness, that is even more important than the search function to be honest.
