Finnair Virtual - A Discord-based VAM Airline
« on: April 08, 2018, 01:16:26 AM »
I am pleased to share the news that a new VAM-based airline, Finnair Virtual (https://www.finnairvirtual.fi/) has launched and is inviting pilots to apply.

The focus at Finnair Virtual is on the flying: we want to simplify the process for pilots to manage and book flights, track their progress and engage in operational activities such as submitting manual PIREPs.

We want the focus to be on the flying and not unnecessary complications such as financial management or complex web portals for pilots.

Most significantly, we are seeking to innovate in the area of the tools we provide our community to interact with the airline.

While our airline management backend is VAM and is used to manage routes, fleet, ranks, hubs, and so on, the user interface we present to the public and pilots is not. Our main Web site is built on Wordpress using the VAMwp Wordpress plugin (https://github.com/likeablegeek/vamwp) recently announced in VAM forums.

We have also adopted the Discord social gaming platform for managing all airline operations from communicating with and between pilots to allowing pilots to manage their operational activities. Through a simple Discord chat bot, pilots can manage all their pilot activities in a simple series of chat messages. All engagement between the airline and its pilot community is through the Discord platform rather than by e-mail or Web-based forums.

This Discord chatbot will eventually be released to the VAM community once it is considered sufficiently mature and complete.

We welcome you to visit our site and learn more about Finnair Virtual and hope to see some of you in the air.

Hi Adanesh,
I am Herve M. CEO of All African airways VA.
I have tried the Plugin you created, it is a nice plugin. and it will definitely help for people like me who are using Wordpress.
Unfortunately, when i setupped and download the plugins. it create somelatency on my database.
At the end of the road, it throws me an error message.
Error trying to run this query.
once it throws me this message, i cannot access anymore the admin part of my VA to make the changes.
I am obliged to disable the plugins through FTP in order to access again my admin side of my wordpress installation.
Any idea why?
My Wodrpress Database and VAM database are in the same cluster, and are separated database.
all the help i can get is welcome.
cheers

Hello I have a similar issue where as the plugin messes up the wordpress system. I had installed the plugin and started to create webpages with great pluggins from my vam site and database. But then when trying to log out of wordpress and was given the message 403 forbidden access to this server is forbidden. So i closed down the webspage and reloaded wordress login from a new page yet again to be shown the forbidden 403 message. this messed up my wordress install and i had to revert to a back up as i was no longer able to log into my site. This was allot of hassle for me. From what i had seen of the ability to put vam elements onto my wordpress site i was very impressed and it was communicating with my database ok. But the issue is with something going wrong with the wordpress dashboard and throws up loads of errors.

Can any one shed some light on this. I see the developers site has the plugin in mossion and i am woundering where i have gone wrong for it to create such issues with wordpress.
