I think, certainly for people that don't visit the forum so often that there's significant potential for confusion between what is POSCON, and what is ADX, and where the line (if any) is between the two; it's not that clear

I apologize in advanced if there is a confusion between ADX and PosCon. This is not by design but a side effect of the situation. 

A complete refurbish of ADX required substantial resources and capital. PosCon provided both of those. So the line is naturally gray today but will become more evidend and segregated once the PosCon network goes live later this year. Instead of only having the ADX forums to the registered users, we also granted access to the general PosCon forums which are hosted by the same server in order to allow you guys to witness the pricess of creating a completely new network from scratch. However, if this creates confusion, we can always remove those priviledges and only have the ADX forum accesible. Is this creating a confusion?

i also wanted to touch on another issue. You have simmers that love flying online, simmers that hate it, and users that would love to but feel overwhelmed by the experience. The issue with the current networks is that they expect everyone to know everything without actually spending the time to train new pilots. 

Very few controllers actually walk beginers through the process without eventualy losing their patience. This a situation that I always understood but at the same time thought it could change one day. 

So by granting all of you access to the general poscon forum, we want those new pilots to experience and become comfortable with the great experience of flying amid busy skies with “real” ATC without ever feeling like they dont belong there. 

I hope this is clear but I be happy to address specific concerns.

This is all really cool and I think the status quo isn't something that needs to be changed around, but that's just my humble 2 cents.

At the same time, here's where I think the confusion comes in from my particular point of view... I joined this site because I was told about POSCON by some friends of mine. I went to poscon.net, clicked signed up, and was directed here. Because this is still "forums.poscon.net", the difference between POSCON and ADX was a bit blurred... I hadn't heard of ADX in my life before then. Of course, reading @Andrew's announcements right up the top of the page, that swiftly quelled any confusion I had. I suppose if this can be explained a bit more directly to people who came here like me there won't be any blurriness at all... not that the blurriness is a particularly huge issue anyway :)

Holy crap, sorry guys but so far the whole new site is horrible!  Don't understand why sometimes things are better left alone.

I wish there was a working RSS feed. I use a homepage by Protopage.com where I can use feeds to show new content when it's posted. It worked perfect with the old ADX website but not with this one. When I select the RSS feed icon I get a "Best airdailyx feeds" with a blank screen and a comment of "No matching results".

If I try to use the URL https://www.airdailyx.net/news/, it doesn't work either. Perhaps because of the secure aspect of the URL.

Cheers, Thad

Hi Thad,

I forwarded your email to our developers. Hopefully we can come up with a solution.

Thanks,

Andrew

Using the ADX URL as the feed works now Andrew, thanks!

I am a fan of the site setup in general, but it does seem to be a bit of a ghost town.  Maybe users of the old site just can't accept the new site?  It is not just lacking users, it seems to be lacking in the back end.

For the first time ever across both sites I submitted some news the other day which I thought was quite relevant (release of FSX3D Gap Tallard which has been in development for the past year) and this was totally ignored.  There was no news at all for about 3 days.  If that is going to be the case I won't bother reporting anything again.

It has been lacking, and we apologize for that.

What is really needed is more back-end editors. Are you interested in helping out?
