And it's nice to see some old, familiar names too. Still, I need to read through the rules and topics to get back in the swing of it. Maybe I'll even toss out a mesh or two.
And I'm not satisfied with my new name, but when was I ever decisive, heheh...
I hope all is well, I'll see you around.

Welcome back! If you want, you can have a name change (...but only one, choose wisely). Talk to one of the admins! :)

Thank you, that's a fine solution. I suppose I'll go with my old name. I will eventually speak with a red shirt, though I really should've given the choice more thought when I began this account.
On that note, I don't see TF58 on the staff list anymore, though he suggested YSFHQ to me over FB.
Is he under a different name?
It's great I see so many players from YSTK/YSP now with staff positions. You've all come along very well.

Taskforce58 is still under the same name as he was on the previous YSFlight forums. He was never part of the YSFHQ staff. He was offered the opportunity to be on the staff, but declined for personal reasons and he is always more than welcome to join the staff if he decides to change his mind.

Ah, see? Had I given it a thought, I'd've searched for him...

Welcome (back?)! I've only been here for a year and half. I came after YSPilots so I don't know anyone over there except those who moved here.

Had you the same name on YSP?
There are so many old names I remember, every one of them fondly.

And thus, Canada is one member closer to owning the place.

Haha, at YSTK we had two or three out of three or four admins from Canada.
These guys'll do fine though. I remember their names from YSP. Some I bumped heads with, but it was becuse they had so much potential and I was an overbearing rule and grammar-nazi, lol! It's nice to see them on top now. They deserve it, and all the support us members can provide.



Yah, I'm still too wordy, heh...

Oh hey dude, Sera had a special private chair reserved for me at her cafe in the dorm, and you can join me there. Let me fetch you a seat. Sure feels nice to be retired from being an admin and just enjoy life as a regular forum user.

Didn't someone mentioned about creating a special user group called "retired YS forum admins" or some such? I think we can go ahead with that idea now. :lol:

Ah, another veteran enters the den we all know that is YSFHQ. *stands up in front of PC and salutes*

Although I don't recall you back in YSP*, it's always a pleasure for someone making a come back to the YSFlight community. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

*which is a shame for me

Hi, Shutter. Yup, I was Skyline. Could I beg and plead and cajole and trade to have my name changed to that, if convenient?
Hiya, TF. It's great to see you. I suppose I've taken enough time off, and it's time to get back to playing. Are you more relaxed now? No more YS-influenced grey hairs?
I can't say it's nice to be home, I dunno this place, but let's see if I can squeeze myself into a wheel-well somewhere.

It's got all the good from YSPilots with an over populated Staff team with a 0 tolerance for Bullshit. So any trolling is stopped before it become a problem. Plus we face that we turned the YSP trolls into the YSFHQ staff, and we all put too much hard work into the forum to troll it.

And forget another Canuck... The Empire is striking back...

Hope to see proof that you haven't lost your modeling abilities.

I gave up modelling along with being a control freak and grammar nazi, but I may have a Boeing 314A, HE-111, or 727-200 kicking around in my projects bin.
My fave genre now would be kitplanes, like the Van's RV7, Velocity XL-RG, CH-701, or Rutan Q200.
And I might take up the virtual hammer and chisel again.
BTW, TF, I can find no way to view YSP, even via the wayback machine.
How might I get my old avatars and signatures back, or the few solo releases I posted? I don't even have my login for the FTP now, though the storage is likely long-since vanished.

PS, I can't find anything from the Shadow Hunters. Most of my addons were posted there. I'd like to get some of those back to play with.

PPS, thank you for changing my name. Fits a bit better than KitPlaneFan.

Good day to you sir. Remember me, the retarded "Mjr Jmcbob" whom requested the Blue Angels paints way back when? haha.

Nice to see you again chap.

They are both different people, Skyline was a member on the YS community long before you or toxic even showed up.
