New Army Aviation Site (AGAIN)

#1
Many of you will know that three of us Army Aviation chaps have been building a new web site to help keep Army Aviation minded folk in contact. Especially after the AACA forum fell over........

Last week I set up a thread in here and asked for your ideas at Ideas Thread which helped us immensely. Thank you.

Although we have only placed a 'Temp Holder' for the ‘AAC WOs' and Sgts' Mess’ and ‘Links’ pages, the Main 'Member’s Area' is all but complete.

We are therefore please to announce that Army Aviation Co UK website is now open to yee all. It is in its infancy and will grow.

Usernames used within ARRSE will not be permitted, as we do not whish to give away your ARRSE ID. As it is a closed shop’ all registrations will require manual acceptance from the admin staff.

May I say many thanks to the MODS at ARRSE for steering us in the right direction, and allowing us to use ARRSE.

Bobcarwillie, The use of your real name or a nickname is entirely up to you. I use my real name on the new site because I have nothing to hide. I served for 20 years, 13 in the Corps, pilot and QHI. If I can help someone with flying matters then I will. If you like me you like me, if you dislike me you dislike me.

Who cares.

Fred it can be avoided, and I have this evening asked a few folk to change their username with our Admin assitance.

We do however feel that if you are known by a nick (as I am [ ch@nn]), then that will work because your mates will try and find you under that name.

We looked at this point long and hard, even to the point where I altered the code to make it compulsory to enter your full name. This can now be seen in any users profile. In time real names will also be shown in the members list, I have the code for it, and just need to write it into the site.

Like this site we are not .mod or .gov and do not wish to be so yight with regulations that people will ignor us.

If you feel strongly on it, we are open to suggestion.

Why not start a thread on the site.

PS it was my ID that I refered to, and lets be honest, if you had not worked it out then you really should leave the keyboard alone.

Sven - I believe they've sorted the problem now. I too had the same problem with the Opera browser. Looked at the address line and it was trying to redirect to (what Opera thought was) a false address. It wasn't and a bit of editing in the address line sorted the problem.

Anyway - like I said, I believe the problem's all sorted now :wink:

Just thought I'd say, the new site is excellent and those that created it, should be proud of their achievements.

It is still looking for fresh blood so if you haven't yet made it 'across' then please make the effort.

And an added incentive for you, I'm not allowed to tell long boring stories.
