PMDG to open own Customer Forum

On 02MAR18, PMDG informed AVSim of our intent to move our support forum to a company owned site.
PMDG has been a part of AVSim since 1998, when AVSim founder, Tom Allensworth first broached the idea of hosting PMDG’s forum as a way to grow traffic for both of these young, new enterprises.  PMDG has retained our loyalty to AVSim through occasional ups-and-downs in the relationship but the time has come for us to move forward and unify our customer support forum more closely with our ability to support customers around the world.
This move is being made to ensure that PMDG and our customers retain the ability to communicate freely, directly and candidly with us and with one another across a wide range of issues affecting the global community of PMDG customers.   
We notified AVSim today of our intent to move in order to facilitate a discussion on how to make this transition as smooth and seamless as possible for AVSim users and PMDG customers.   
Shortly afterward, the PMDG forum was apparently removed from public access at AVSim, we presume accidentally.
We have reached out to AVSim and the forum staff to alert them to the issue, and we hope it will be returned to public use while we transition our official operation to a new home.
We will post more information on the official opening of that new forum location just as soon as we have it ready for customer use and we look forward to welcoming you there.  There are exciting times ahead!
