Today let's see a somewhat difficult topic: Recently, there have been more and more release discussions in the forum. Basically, requests for a release date or the progress of a project are not welcome in the community; they lead to frustration for the developers and the users.
We disable negative reactions
We have decided to disable negative reactions due to the ongoing problems. However, all previous reactions will remain.
From now on, we moderate also reviews in the filebase, after numerous problems and complaints in the past. This means that all reviews are manually checked by a moderator and activated. In this article we set some things right regarding reviews and give a short guideline.
Review of the year 2020
2020 will go down in the chronicles of the OMSI WebDisk as a year of changes. The closure of the official OMSI Forum (OOF) demanded a lot from everyone involved, especially the technology. The team was expanded in May to include the experts who provide quality support and take care of the Wiki. The next big change followed in October with the departure of Tatra and the formation of a new team. Finally, there was an Advent Calendar again after a year's break. Probably this year will be the one with the most and biggest changes in the entire history of the OMSI WebDisk.
Mail addresses, double accounts and VPN
We get a lot of messages about returning e-mails and double accounts. Please make sure that your email address is up to date and inform the team if a second person in your household has a WebDisk account. We also noticed that many of you use the VPN provided by the Opera browser. The use of VPN is not allowed in the WebDisk.
The pre-Christmas raffles and the advent calendar are back!
The Christmas season is approaching and the Advent mood is also returning to the WebDisk: in 2018 there was already an Advent calendar with raffles in December, now, after a year's break, the promotions are back! Every day in December an exclusive download is hidden behind a door and there are also raffles with many prizes by AEROSOFT and HALYCON!
Filebase: English descriptions
From now on all rules of the upload conditions, especially the English translation, will be enforced in the filebase.
Activation obligation for uploads
From now on there is an activation required for all uploads in the WebDisk. This means that uploaded entries must first be checked by a moderator before they are available to the public. You don't need to do anything . Please be patient that an upload cannot be activated immediately.
Changed rule: File structure
Today a new rule comes into effect that simplifies the packing of archives and provides clarity about the folder structure that is required of you when you upload files. We want to remove the confusion about different OMSI paths.
Information about changes in Team
Tatra, previously co-project manager, is leaving the team. We would like to express our thanks for the work of the past years and look forward to a great future with the new motivated team members r2d2_2, Lµkas and Schleswig-Holstein. In the future we will try to enforce transparency and equal rights for all at the top of our agenda, but we still have to work through some incidents of the past months.
