Hi All I would like to take this opportunity to thank all site users of their continual support of Recreational Flying .com, you all have made this site an extremely valuable resource for everyone in the recreational aviation community. It is now time for me to focus on other things and thus take a step back from here. So with this in mind, and in keeping with the spirit of being a valuable community, I would like to form a Recreational Flying .com governing body. This body will form a type of member board who would like to help the whole recreational aviation community in the running of this site/resource. I think a group of 5 respected individuals/contributors will bring a new focus for the site and drive it to even greater heights than it already is. These 5 board members will control/enhance the site for the benefit of all and whose placement will be through a user voting system. Once the board is established they will look at ways to enhance the site, find ways to generate income to fuel the site's growth, explore extra functional services that the site can offer to all etc... I will maintain the site's development to the boards requested enhancements plus the administration of the server. Also I need to maintain an overall veto otherwise we could end up with a cohesion of ulterior motives in the site's existence...imagine getting a board with an agenda to just close the site or make it a personal advertising place for one specific aircraft. This is of course only if there is enough interested individuals out there who would be interested in being a contributing part in the direction and future success of Recreational Flying.com. If you are interested please put your hand up in this thread and after a couple of weeks, if there is enough hands, we can hold an election. Also part 2... I will be focusing on further developing the Whats Up Australia site. Any developments in that site can also be included here if the board wishes. I have started from scratch and you can see it being developed, add your suggestions, comments etc plus even test it out as each part is developed. It is still very buggy and there is a lot of work to do but through your help it will end up what YOU want. You can find this at www.jackaroo.com.au so jump over there and register and keep going back there adding your thoughts to the development so it ends up exactly the way you want it to be...it's all up to you and YOU have the say so please, please take an interest in it so we can all hit the nail on the head perfectly...thanks for your time.
