Default Database Trade Available Issue

While I was searching for people with certain aircraft models available, I noticed that 90% of the available trades showed up as false.

When it says "Available: Yes" for a model, and I click on it, I then see "We're sorry... Currently there are no users that have this model marked for sale/trade.
Please try again in a few days or sign up for our automated weekly search in your preferences."

So yeah, my search is gonna take a lot of time with this bug.

Hey there,

Just to clarify some things, are you using the DAC MOdel database or the retailer Database?
Can you let me know what terms you are searching so I can test this on my end?
I tried a few within the Model Database without coming across the same issue, but clarification and guidance on how you came across the issue will help us get to the bottom of this.

Richard.

I'm using the DAC model database. The terms I entered are manufacturer (Gemini Jets), scale (1:400) and remarks (sample).

When I click on any model with "Available: Yes", usually there are no users with that particular model.

The Database is somewhat riddled with glitches at the moment. Not much that can be done with it at the moment.

It comes up as you describe because is available on the sister forum WINGS900!!! if you check the same product over there, it should show! found this out loads of times!! but its a WASTE of time contacting the owners as they have all long left the forum or hobby. unless you can find one still active. you will also find you will hardly EVER get an answer. did this loads of times when I started collecting. very very few replied. but good luck anyway.

probably best to put a WANTED ad in the relevant trade section.

.... I have experienced the opposite. I have a database of models I'll part with. Once in a while I get a message that so-and-so member is interested in one of my models. So I run off a reply giving them a reasonable price or ask them for their best offer. Never once had a reply. So why do they want a model, but have no interest in obtaining it given an opportunity to do so?
..... Chalk it up to Human nature.

Hey guys,

We're aware of the database issue. It seems to be acting up on the sibling sites too so we have the development team looking into trying to get that back up and working. This was a feature that the old site developers crafted and have since left with their secrets on the fixes. Case #2466664 We'll keep you updated as we hear more from the development team.

You need to know the rest of the story. The people you bought the site from DIDN'T know either. The original developers know how the system was written and how it operated. After the first buyer shot themselves in the foot and ran out cash, they then sold this site to another owner, who you then purchased it from; by that time all knowledge was lost.

I know the person who wrote the code; he knows the full story and is disgusted in the way the entire system (and wings900.com) has been treated over the years. Now over 7 years: 3 owners, hundreds of empty promises, support ticket numbers, and nothing to show for it. And no, he will not work with you to fix it.

Kids there are other databases out there.. time to move on...

Different person, the original coder of this site is not involved with you guys at all. He made an attempt, prior to you purchasing it, to buy the sites so everything could be fixed but the owners/admins at the time saw $$ not helping users.. Sad

G'day,

Would actually be good to share the whole story there, Todd... How originally Gordon developed DAC and then sold it on to you guys at wings900. Then becoming an independent web site run by an open group of collectors, that DAC/Wings900 team decided to create a new company with someone from outside the aircraft hobby and you guys joined in hook, line and sinker. (or is that stinker??)

How wonderful you guys thought it would be to allow an outsider to join and pump new money into "promoting" the sites. And... how it all backfired and the original (times once removed) owners, including yourself Todd (Flight Director aka AeroPro) lost the whole lot. Then that new owner in desperate need of money to expand his hobby site, sold the forum onto MASmedia, who in turn destroyed much of the site by deleting alot of the info and threads and broke much of the rest. They then passed on the site to current owners VS-admin.

I also remember how you kept saying to members on here, that you're willing to help, however every time I asked for that help, I was pushed aside. Instead, you left here and went to work at DiMA... no surprises here, except that you're peddling that crap again about there are other databases out there.. time to move on... - to the one you're involved with huh..? 7 Years and bugger all people bother with posting threads on DiMA, most members just use the database there, to keep track of their collections.

Yes I know you co-wrote the original script on here. Todd, least be honest about who you are. I know the person who wrote the code is you. And you're pis-sed about how you and the others were pushed aside. However the current owners are actually finally doing something. I guess this scares you the most. the possibility that soon this site will actually be working again to its fullest.

Thankyou VS-admin for all your continuing work at fixing the various problems on wings900/DAC. Things are certainly improving.

Lou

You can also send me a PM and a simple check will tell me whether that seller/member is still logging in regularly onto DAC/Wings900. Either way, I will happily PM you back with the answer.

Cheers Lou

Keep drinking the kool-aid Lou.. tastes good doesn't it? VS has done NOTHING to fix your database that is now so far behind... 6 months ago you said this, and 0 to show for it. Nothing you or the owners can do will bring it back. Face it, its dead... All those involved had their chance to keep this site what it was, but in the end, greed took over and you know it.

This is an ongoing process and as noted before, a difficult one. We continue to look into and attempt to resolve this.

Said the admin now...6 months ago..1 year ago...2 years ago...3 years ago..
Said the previous admin...
Said the previous owner....

If the previous 3 owners had listened you wouldn't be in this predicament... the core of this site and Wings900 has been left for rot....
