Why is it that I seem to be seeing a whole load of "NEWBIES" ? 

 

I'm sure that Nick - Doug and Jon have noticed it as well -:D

 

Would it have something to do with Orbx etc. being quick off the mark with

stuff for MSFS - which - with well over 1 Million downloads - has increased the 

potential Market for new Orbx customers.

 

I also noticed a number of them already had quite a few Orbx P3D addons as well and 

yet they were classified as newbies - where have they been hiding ?

Not everyone wants to chat on the forums. Some join just for support. They're not all social butterflies like you John :)

Cheers

Graeme the social butterfly.

Now you don't have to creep and fly low level across the border to do your butterflying in my backyard:rolleyes:

Forum newbie here, but been a flight sim enthusiast a good 30 years at least now, started on Amiga 500 with FS2.

I think MS FS2020 is responsible for a surge in interest in civil flight sim in particular, one gaming forum I visit it was rare to see a flight sim topic, but since release and even in anticipation of its release, MS FS2020 has been a hot topic to this day.

Hardware peripherals and controllers seem to be enjoying a boost in sales since MS FS2020 too.

These are good times we live in FS wise, long live newbies LOL.

Am I still classed as a newbie with only 20 or so posts since January 2008? 

 

No, you are a "member".

Just check your profile for your rank.

Newbie > Member > Advanced Member > Senior Member > Life Member

 

 I do not know how many posts are required to be promoted to the next level.

 

 

Edit: had overlooked, that there is something like a senior member.

Newbie here. Kind of.

 

MSFS brought me back. I got so sick and tired of tweaking FSX and having 1001 add-ons of different flavours, I tossed it years ago. Been flying DCS since then, which I really enjoy. But MSFS is irresistible (and no tweaking) and Orbx is the place to be for good add-ons, so here we are in the forums.

 

Just bought "So Fly". Really like it.

With the speed Iain managed to post his 68 k, he did not have that much time to loose hair.

I’m playing sim games since 1998, using Orbx addons since Prepar3D v2 but registered on this forum maybe a month ago.

And that is the probable answer: Just entering this lovely forum makes one a Newbie, irrespective of flying or purchasing experience.
