Biggest german flightsimulation forum destroyed?
« on: June 10, 2020, 03:40:14 PM »
Hello

I red a time ago that a big flightsimulation forum, called flightx/flightxpress, was destroyed in late 2018 after a server update.

Is that true?

The forum was used also by many developers and publisher like aerosoft members.
Does anyone know what exactly happend and if a new forum was founded?
I red long time ago that before the site went down, the forum was attacked a few times. One time by a user who was blocked.
But i cant tell if these are rumours or not.

Yes that is true. But "destoyed" is a little too hard word. It went offline in September 2018. After a server update it was gone and Marc, the owner was not interessted to get it online again.

The german speaking flightsim friends split up and came together again in different forums. Most wellknown is the Eulenforum: https://www.forum.eulenandfriends.de/forum/ and we FS9ers have established our own FS2004-Forum in juli 2019, where we don't need to read, what an outdated sim we are using  ;) : https://fs2004.team/forum/

Please contact me via PN if you want to know more..

I red that the german flightx forum is going to be online soon.
