A few words about this website

The relaunch of vatsim.net was a big challenge (and it still is). Since the last vatsim.net was written and set up in late 2001, it certainly needed lots of changes and new content to get the pages up to date.

A couple of trys have been started, and now the new look and new content is alive. As project-manager, I would like to thank a real big bunch of VATSIM-members and a couple of men and women from around the globe, without their help it would have been an endless task.

First of all, my thanks goes to  Kasper Skaarhoj, who started back in 1998 to develop a content management system, called TYPO3. His idea was to differ between content and layout. Today, TYPO3 is maybe one of the best wCMS around. Not easy to setup but it offers tons of possibilities. Aside of Kaspar, i would like to give three cheers to the developers around the world, who've spent their time to create lots of tools and plugins for the system, which are also built in on our website. Of course, VATSIM.NET is not running on a standard system. Therefore, my next cheers goes to Mike Evans, who did a lot of programming in the background to let typo3 work in "our world".

And then there is the editors team: Terry, Luca, Alex, Steven, John, Stuart, Wycliffe and so many more. Thank you very much for spending a bit of your free time to fill up the empty pages with ideas and letters.

The VATSIM.NET Web Site will carry on, will have new areas to discover within the next weeks. The information are coming from our hands, but also from yours. If you would like to share a moment, a procedure, a tool, some snapshots around our hobby, the online flight simulation, don't hesitate and bring yourself in. This place is for you, the VATSIM members, the Flight Simulation Community.
