I think the forum ebbs and flows..sometimes there are many new posts sometimes not. Personally I think its no longer the ubizoo because most of those posts are no longer even started because we all know its IBTL.

I don't know about the rest of you but times for me are harder than they were when I first started flying this sim. I started like most of you with the first release, then was away for 2 years, and have been back for 2. Since the start I've moved twice (chattanooga to atlanta to cincinnati), gotten married, then divorced, now engaged again, changed careers, took a significant hit to my personal income, started a business, got a dog- then got another dog to keep the first one company, bought a house, then a pool...etc. etc. etc. I'm a very different person now, and what I post or reply to is different than what I would have in the past.

I really enjoy reading this forum and thus I´m able to learn from friendly people who can REALLY fly. Playing IL-2 is the most satisfying sim experience that I´ve had since Sub Command and Dangerous Waters. I´m very glad that I´ve found this game and this forum.

Been flying the sim since December of whatever it says at the bottom there. A long time. I have grown a bit tired of the game. I was hoping that 1946 would perk my interest, but after the "new" wore off, it was the same old planes being used by the same old people in the same old way.

In essence, I'm bored with it all. So, I'm taking a break by driving a sub around the Pacific in SH4, and playing ArmA as well.

My HOTAS is still connected, and I'll put in a rare appearance from time to time on HL, but I'm waiting for BoB and Gennadich's WW1 sim.

Need some proper manly dogfighting. All the BnZ that everyone does now a days has grown tedious. It's no fun at all.

And IL2 still is no good offline.

with no updates from the development team there is no buzz. there aren't even any posts that say we aren't or are listening to you, the community. 46 injected a small bit of life into the game, but without implementing community suggestions the product will die. think how much of a boost it would be if new maps were added and the missing planes were put in or even generic cockpits for the external planes that already exsist?!?!

also, to you offline players; stop being shy hermits, get online and fight some real pilots instead of the stupid AI. i would be sad to know that i missed the opportunity to meet the people that i now call my friends. I now have an "underground railroad" of couches to sleep on all across the world. these online people have the same passion for WWII aviation as you do and want to share it with you. So go online with "ALL SEEING EYE" or "hyperlobby" and find a server that suits your level of immersion from arcade servers with icons on or full difficult ones that are historical. you're gonna get out of the cummunity what you put into it.

Agreed 100%

Obviously certain people may define the difference between 'History' (worthy of discussion) and 'Political Garbage' (shhhh!) as a period of around 60 years.

I guess everyone has their own perspective. Personally, I see the pages of history being written as we speak. Maybe that's because I'm young enough to know that I'm going to see the consequences of decisions made today by people who won't.

By discussing history and applying the lessons learned we help prevent repeating the mistakes of the past.

In theory.

I found this article about the GD community.

Scientist Closer to Understanding Simmer Behavior.
AP or PA or something like that.
April ??/07

For years scientist Dr. Semour DoLittle has been trying to unlock the mystery of the GD community's cycle of behaviour. Dr DoLittle claims to have discovered the source of a condition many simmers suffer from.

"The key clue came to me after I got calls from Copperhead and Tagert. They were asking advice on how to clean an oily substance from their keyboards,....that's when it hit me." said DoLittle in a recent interview.

"Musth is a state or condition of violent, destructive frenzy occurring with the rutting season in male simmers, accompanied by the exudation of an oily substance from glands between the eyes and mouth."

Pronounced the same as must

"Recently I've suspected some posters get annoyed when this oily substance gets on their keyboards."

"Besides that, when a simmer is in musth the glands just behind the root of his tusks swell to the size of volleyballs. This creates a lot of pressure on the brain and therefore a lot of pain".

Indian simmers have been known to drive their tusks into the mud to relieve the pressure. It's kinda like pressing your gums when you have a toothache.

As previously mentioned this community has it's ups and downs. The following historical document is evidence musthing has occurred more than once during the life of this community.

http://s11.photobucket.com/albums/a198/FritzFranzen/Spanking.jpg

Although to date no cure has been found the mods have shown a great deal of patience. Dr DoLittle's advice would be to take a break from the forum if you suspect you might be coming into musth.

Here's some serious questions for our forum experts:

Seems like 95% of the topics we discuss today on the IL2 forum would be off-topic on a BOB forum, and I don't see the IL2 forum surviving long after BOB comes out.

What is the BOB forum going to be like ? Will it have the same format as IL2's ?

Will it have new moderators, or will our IL2 mods be transferred over to the BOB forum ?

How can BOB become more popular than IL2, when the scope of the sim will (initially?) be much more limited than that of IL2 ? (a niche subject within a niche gaming category situation)

What an interesting topic.

I joined this forum in 2003, then joined a squad and altered my name in 2004. I've certainly had my ups and downs with it, but for some reason, I've never really left it for long.

I read much more than I post. Many of the regular posters I feel like I know, the way that one thinks they may know an writer of editorials in a newspaper or magazine, except that writing here is much more personal at some point. Many of the links that folks place here to humorous content and video's I don't think I'd get anywhere else, as I don't frequent many forums.

I have a hell of a day job, lots of stress - the sim (yes for me, it's a sim that I mostly play as a game) and these forums have provided me with welcome and interactive diversion from that stress.

I played BF2 for a while, mostly to attempt to do something fun with my son, however, that foray did not last long. During that time, I attempted to follow some of the forums and learned what a load of utter rubbish that a gaming forum typically is.

The worst days here are infinitely better than the best days that I ever observed on any BF2 forum. If you think it's bad here, and you have not had the chance - go check out some of the FPS forums.

Although I've strayed a few times into a political statement or two, it was always related to my own life experiences or history. These forays into the political, I regard as mistakes - reactions to others political posts.

I agree with Tagert and Faust, politics (and I'd add religion too) have absolutely no place here - they serve no purpose but to divide and cause friction - ultimately taking away from that one common issue that brings us here.

I've made quite a few very good friends, directly or indirectly through this forum. These good friends I've been "flying" with on comms for years - some I have met in person and had dinner with, and even went to one's wedding.

On the other hand, some of my friends don't post on this forum, or even read it much. Many "old" hands have started their own forums - or gone off to "exclusive" Il2 related endeavors. While I participate in some of those "exclusive" endeavors, I believe that this is the most important forum in the genre. I do read and check SIMHQ weekly, but for me, it's a much more "stale" forum than this one - that's just my personal take - I do find things of value there occasionally.

This is the one place where you can find all the news - events - moans and complaints - praises and insights - validated Maddox current and future developments - testing - all in one place.

Plus - all the humor and **** that makes life interesting.

I'll go out on a limb and predict that this forum will last well into SOW - and maybe longer.

Two things that I would wish for here:

1) I wish the Moderators would enforce the rules of conduct with an Iron Hand - this would get rid of most of the truly inane posts. We are in a upswing right now of thread hijacking. New people come here and ask very valid, sincere questions about fairly straightforward issues - and get 6 to 20 pages of BS from a handful of guys who have been arguing for two years over the same thing.

2) BRING BACK THE SEARCH ENGINE! There are things I can't get to.

Please pardon the long post, I'd never really thought about the life of the forum before.

I find it rather strange that on this forum discussion on current affairs often get so nasty. It's like a whole different bunch of people appearing when certain type of topics come up.

I think this is sad. WW2 aviation and this sim are of course the main line, but after you discover that most (?) people on this forum are intelligent adult persons capable of arguing their cases you would like hear their views on other issues too. I know, there are other forums, but still.

I agree whole heartedly with your post but there are one or two individuals here that seem to take delight in being totally obnoxious while still remaining on topic.
Someone, whose knowledge of a particular subjects' technical details is lacking, may post what he or she believes is correct information.
Instead of being advised as to where to find
the correct information they are subjected to
an unfriendly and confrontational sentence by sentence tirade by some "no it all" jerk who has probably just cost us another recruit.
It's ok to know it all, but it's not ok to belittle other people because they don't have a

I for one, pray that such is the case. I know I've ruffled a few feathers here and there but I hope it's nothing "personal". I don't think anyone comes on this board to deliberately "piss people off". But trolls exist and I'd hate to see them do to this place what has been done to others.

Hey guys,

what I've found that really works well is using PM for contraversial topics. I've been involved in threads ranging from politics to homosexual behavior in whales. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Even threads on religion was a blast. The best thing about using PM is that the flamers don't show up simply because their audience isn't big enough.

What I've done is open a thread announcing a PM discussion atleast a week in advance. Those interested will psot "I'm in" and they get invited. The majority enjoy just following. It really works and makes GD look like a barrel of monkeys.
