I've just landed on our website for the first time in a while. I thought I had made a mistake and landed on a FlightSim Pro, or whatever it calls itself this week, website: "sophisticated, professional, open-source" is just the strap-line the scammers use. What happened to our logo? The adverts are more prominent than our own content, and in particular the download of "PDF Creator" is more prominent than our own download. The whole thing looks half-baked, or even broken.

That said, once I had got over the shock and disappointment and explored a bit, the content is actually satisfactory.

Flightgear might be described as "sophisticated, professional, open-source, but it is NOT the impression that our home page gives.

Totally agree with vivian and evilslut.

I add that FB(i) makes surveillance to all users that visit FG even they have no account in Facebook.
Maybe it helps fighting against ProF**ckSimulator.

But in my opinion FB box is not a good idea, totally opposed to the FG's sense.

Design is important, message is important, foreign relations... important, strategy... important.

FG is High Value's free software and has to looks like, with freedom, culture and independence among it's great virtues.
