It appears that Calforums has now changed policies and the boards are open only to guys currently on the CAL and XJT seniority lists. In addition, the board is no longer anonymous, and all posters will be required to sign their names to their posts.
They say they did it to cut down on abuse, which is understandable, but it really stinks for those of us who liked getting information on the company ... I have a lot of friends who work over at XJT.
For those who are interested, before outsiders were cut off I did learn that XJT's newest system bid resulted in a net gain of 170 positions, so it seems that recalls are likely in the near future at CoEx.
Well, I'm a posting addict on Calforums and on the senority list and I havnt figured out how to get back on the site. This s*cks.
I like the idea of everyone posting with ther name as I always do on that site, however I don't think the site should be avaliable to CAL & XJT folks only. We'll see what happends.
BTW, I also notice that there is rarelly threads on this board about Express, but I think that is because we are not hiring YET. Once we being to hire I think there will be more chat about the comapany. Hiring should begin soon I think, 5 jets a month (8 in OCT) and somethings got to give.
I would like to see some more stuff about XJT in the future. I am instructing and flying C402's for a Part 135 company. I am considering XJT as an airline that I would like to fly for. Hopefully you all get called back soon.
I don't know too much about cookies, except that chocolate chip are my favorite. So if the only place I've ever input my employee ID is when logging on coair.com, and maybe the MEC website, what sort of barf tasting cookie tells calforums.com what my number is?
Hell, if it's that easy why don't they just snag my SS# and open a few bank accounts...
They took company information (from COAIR, available to all pilots) and made some kind of database from which they derived a password and login. They didn't know that you were "onetaco". Or that it corresponded to your personal info from COAIR. When captjim said "cookies" he was referring to the text files saved on your computer that allow you to log in to CALFORUMS without having to enter your login and password every time.
