  1. This happened due to a change we did on the forums and homepage yesterday. Try booking though this link :) http://old.vatsim-scandinavia.org/book/rt/
  2. Hello everyone, We're pleased to announce we're ready to launch our new homepage! Due to the new homepage being an integrated part of the forums, we'll need to take down both sites for a period of time. We estimate 1-3 hours, depending how smooth the transition plays out. The maintenance period will start at 17th March at 18:00z. Regards, Web team
  3. Hello there, just another update from the Web department! We've now finalised the new version of Handover - our centralised login service. This one uses OAuth2, which is the same authentication technology as Google uses when you click "Sign in with Google". Each service which want to integrate and pull VATSIM membership data through VATSCA, will need your explicit permission. Handover is designed to not be intruding, so it'll always redirect you back to the original service you came from. However, you may also at any time login to Handover itself here: https://handover.vatsim-scandinavia.org/ This is where you can see which services you've authenticated, and also given the ability to withdraw the permission. It's probably easier for you to check it to understand. Try logging out of the forums, and logging back in. You'll then be presented with the new Handover. For starters the new Handover is only available on forums, but all new services used by us will use this to login, so you'll probably notice it more in the future. TAS will still run the legacy version of Handover, as we're not maintaining TAS anymore - this means that you might need to accept the privacy policy twice, and TAS won't show in the new Handover website. The work of Handover has unfortunately drawn some time away from SANTA, but we had to prioritise the development of Handover to ensure a more modern and robust login infrastructure which will be used in SANTA and other services onwards, not to forget the GDPR requirements. However we earn a lot of time now, as the OAuth2 technology will allow us to very easily integrate with all new services without writing a custom plugin for each one, as it's a standardised protocol. A special shoutout to VATUK who has some open source code which helped us a lot in this update! With this release, our Data Protection Officer has also released a new updated version of the Data Protection Policy, which can be found here: http://vatsim-scandinavia.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Data-Protection-Policy-ACCSCA.pdf This update requires you all to accept new policy when logging into Handover.
  4. You might be right, because I never got RDF to work, and I always sit in multiple instances
  5. Hi, Last night we performed a domain transfer to a new company, which should've gone smooth with no problems. However, as you might have noticed some or all VATSCA pages don't work anymore. The issue is fixed, but it may take up to 24 hours for the changes to propagate and display correctly again. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
  6. I misphrased, I ment that "Climb via SID, FL210" does not cancel restrictions, and "Climb FL210" does So there's no point of saying "Decend via STAR", as "Decend .." means the exact same?
  7. In Norway I've been taught to say "Climb via SID, FL210" and "Climb FL210" to cancel restrictions. Same with "Decend via STAR, FL90" or "Decend FL90".
  8. Merry Christmas to everyone Before the dinner is ready and presents get unpacked, I thought to share an update from the web team, as last time was October. Handover (our centralised login system for member data) is still to be implemented on forums, as currently it only exists in TAS. You'll probably not notice the implementation at all once it's done, as the only visual difference is that you might be served a Privacy Policy to accept upon login, if you haven't already accepted it when logging into TAS. Development of SANTA (Our successor of TAS) has started and the progress is currently a bit slow and steady due to lack of time. SANTA will not come home for Christmas, but Christmas lasts to easter, right? But on a serious note, we don't have a time estimate of when it's done at this point, but we hope it'll be ready for release VATSOON™. Lately we've worked mostly on the design, login screen, and the application form for training. We still have quite a lot to do, but we hope the current vacations might boost things a bit as well I've attached some screenshots of the current state. SANTA is currently our top priority, and Handover a side-objective. Otherwise we have a lot of other things and requests we'd like to do, but we're unable to prioritize at this point, but I'll wrap it up here to keep it short. Happy holidays, and a happy new year Best regards, the Web Department
  9. This downtime affects our login systems, making it not possible to sign into our systems like Forum, TAS etc due to SSO being a part of the affected services. We've not received any notice of when to expect it back and running.
  10. If you or someone want to make sure these pictures are taken, then you're more than welcome! I'd be very helpful Just make sure there's some traffic on them, and send me the raw pictures without editing or putting/collaging them together, then we can display a random country FIR for each time you load the page.
  11. I've tested the pictures, and it's close. Though what I need is a picture like this, but 1440p and without all windows. If someone manages to take a picture of their scope with the correct resolution and remove all windows, post it here! Perhaps your scope will be the front of SANTA
  12. This is great! I’ll crop it and see if we can use it! Thanks a lot!
  13. The deadline has passed, unfortunately with no entires. If someone still want to create a entry, please message me ASAP. If no one are able to contribute, we’ll do this ourselves, but we will not guarantee that the solution will represent each FIR as thought initially. As we’d rather focus on developing Santa
  14. Just upload your scopes in 1440p, with traffic and no windows and your scope might be the face of SANTA login SANTA is the new name of "Scandinavian Training Administration", also known as the successor of TAS. The development is in progress and we need your help for our front-page where you click log in! Therefore we're creating a small competition, if you may call that - where we use the best fitting entry in our front page of SANTA. The prize are virtual hugs and contribution to the community! ? This is the current login screen of SANTA. The competition is in two parts, you may do one or both. 1. The background image. We need something that represent Scandinavia (right now we stole VATUK's as an example). Preferably we don't wish a collage of images, but we do want to represent all our FIRs - so there's a technical possibility to randomly display a country for each time you vist the page. 2. The logo/icon of SANTA. Right now it's a sleigh, perhaps something else? You may submit your entries in this thread as replies, until October 15th 18z. Please remember to keep your original project files if you do some edits, as sometimes we might be interested in doing some tweaks afterwards. The picture should preferably be in resolution of 2560x1440. Remember to not have too much details in the picture, or diffuse them so it does not interfere with the logo and login button.
  15. New version released, v.1.2! @Kristian Oedegaard contacted me today asking on how to update after the new norwegian sector file came out. I honestly though no-one used this "addon", so I never bothered updating this thread. But since there is apparently are some people, I've now released a update compatible with new norwegian sector files etc (check changelog). If anyone using IES could just gimme a "Thanks" rating, I'd love to know how many actually use IES, so I know if I should maintain it
