Thx EDB excellent explanation.
Managed to make the donation using Explorer 11 no probs.
Key was action 4.
The donation form is PayPals note field. The plus sign only visible after total amount has been entered.

I don't soar a with a 16 bit simulation :) I do soar with a 64 bit operating system running 32 bit emulation to make the sim work though ... best to not worry about what goes on under the hood :D

On topic, Bobs correct the box appears after you log into Paypal etc.

Maybe sent a message to the top 100 pilots of last SBC?
http://www.condor-club.eu/comp/globalscore/0/?id=172

I know it's spam... but it is spam for a good cause... :D

And maybe change the rules.
Only people who donated can do requests and ask questions to the organizers. :wink:

y&y
I fully agree with Robyfly. Maybe you should change/enlarge your communication channels for your survey.
All of the current CONDOR Forums are more or less death, especially the german one.
A short brief information/request on the main Condorsoaring page http://www.condorsoaring.com/ should help to get a clearer and more realistic feedback.
Also the suggestion of EDG (more support for the donators..) is good and finally I am voting for a small "competition fee". Its better to fly with 150-200 motivated pilots than rachieve new participation records before starting the competition and loosing more or less 300 pilots before the end of comp.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your suggestions.

As the communication guy of the team, I am aware that a larger communication can be made. Regarding a news on the condorsoaring homepage, let's just forget it: Uros does not answer anymore to emails/requests as he used to do a couple of years ago. The time when community initiatives received support from the devs seems gone.

Most importantly I wanted to see the natural feedback of the community without massive communication.

We are happy :D to say that we know nearly all of you who posted in this topic.

If we make the decision to organize SBC2015 a mass emailing will be sent from Condor Club to inform users.

Our decision to organize or not SBC2015 will not depend only on this "poll" but also on motivation and availability of the team members. To be honest we are a bit tired after all the competitions organized in the past years plus we also have been managing the french community condorsim.fr for nearly 9 years. On the other hand we are aware that SBC is a key event/gathering for Condor pilots during winter time and maybe it contributes to maintain the community alive since there is no communication or vision of the devs for the future.

In case we organize SBC2015:
- I want to raise your attention on the fact that we will spend very little time on claims or requests especially from pilots who did not comply with the rules or did not follow advices given in the tutorials.
- We would also be grateful if the seasoned pilots can help to answer the questions of new competitors.

Regarding the entry fee, it has been suggested already in the past (we remember by whom :wink: ). Our team debated the option but so far disregard it.

Last but not least, let's remember Andreas and Stefke who launched the first SBC in 2007 http://sbc07.speedbattle-cup.com

Outside is dark, wet and cold.
Could we hope to start under the warm sun in the Condor-Saison with SBC2015?
