FlightAware Discussions Upgrade Announcement!


#1

As part of FlightAware’s efforts to improve the social experience for our user community, we will be converting to a new discussion forum the week of Aug 14th. The new discussion site will be hosted on the Discourse platform.

We will be fully migrating the existing content to the new platform to provide a seamless experience. Additionally, the new platform offers a variety of new features and enhancements. In particular, you will find that sharing images and code snippets is much easier. You will continue to have single sign-on from FlightAware.com (so, no separate login/password). The mobile web experience is also much improved over the existing discussions site. While the look and feel will be significantly different, we are excited that our new platform will offer a much improved overall experience and improved usability.
We would like to invite you to take a look at the https://try.discourse.org/ to get a feel for what to expect at the new FlightAware Discussions page.
