Thank you for this u2fly. I can't speak for the press team, but I personally believe we should try to get a in depth review of YSFlight in its current state. We should also bring light to our community.

All these people are downloading YSFlight, but where are they? Fishie and I were talking and he mentioned he had no idea the english community existed until he looked for servers. In my personal experience, I found YSPilots back in 2006 because I was looking for addons for the game I had just found on suclaro.com (fs9 mods)

There's still a decent player base out there, and there should be even easier ways to find HQ. We need to let them know we live.

Whenever i show someone YS they usually say something along the lines of

'Oh, wow, looks fun. I'll grab my pentium 4 and Voodoo 3 (90's PC Components) and join you'

Nice to see someone organized this material. should give us some feedback on what needs to improve.

I'm writing a bunch of papers right now, and this one is sooo bad.
The comparison table on page 7 is amusing. It's inconsistent, poorly calibrated so as to be misleading, or outright wrong on a bunch of them. My favourite being of X-Plane 10, "Few control settings available."
Uhh.

I mean, it's neat that YS was mentioned in a scholarly article, but come on guys. Eight authors.
And it cites Wikipedia. Twice.

Nice to see you alive Waspe :)

For marketing purposes, we need some sort of press package, not sure if one has been made yet. We need better quality reviews.
