Regarding the "shutdown" of the "Upcoming Events"-page: is the new https://my.vatsim.net/events - website the final form or just a temporary thing? Unfortunately, the new site still has a few flaws and is missing essential features, in my opinion (when not logged in to my.vatsim, but then its a similar view): 

  • Website Responsiveness
    • On my monitor (27", so nothing out of the ordinary like a crazy 100" tv or so) I only have about 1/3 occupied with the box in the middle. Why not use the space? Because...
  • Clarity / Simplicity
    • In many entries, you only see what it is actually about after clicking on it and opening a new page. On the old page, you could see the time, event name and even part of the description including a small picture.
    • Like todays event: I can see "17:00 Welcome"... thats it
  • No consistent CI
    • The vatsim-homepage looks clearly different from this event page, and this page also looks different from the actual page on which the new event page should be located (https://my.vatsim.net/)

The old page was just like: Open: see all events on one view, no need to login from time to time... great!

I think the work of the vatsim team is great and I don't want to badmouth anything here, but give my constructive feedback 🙂

Hi!

This is in no way a new and updated site, it is simply a temporary placeholder, as the legacy system we used for posting events to the vatsim.net website stopped working some time ago. Instead of displaying inaccurate information, we put up a temporary calendar view until we develop a new system.

We're sorry for the inconvenience, and we hope to fix this soon!

Ah okay, I'm glad to hear that. Thanks for the quick answer. Perhaps my points can be considered in the development 🙂

would be nice to have CPT highlighted in a different color. same perhaps for VA events held on vatsim.

it's still a WIP, and does not reflect the final website.
