Excuse me, but I don't think the 15 year old CTO was the issue. That kid knew his stuff and did a heck of a job. He knows a lot more than some of these professionals. If you read the email sent to you, you would know that it was not having a strong enough staff. I'm going to miss them

Is this going to be a bashing thread?

Reasons why I see that VA closing:
1. As Mike pointed out, not enough staff (reminds me of another organization...)
2. NW flights are no longer listed, so what would be the point of maintaining a VA without its schedules?
3. As with ANY other site, too busy to keep up with it.

Look, first of all, there is a demand for a new United VA, and not so much a Northwest virtual.

Now, what makes him a jerk? You haven't given us any evidence to support your argument. How are we supposed to believe you?

wow...pretty deep stuff...i was at nwava for a while as the former COO. Wes was a great guy. You do know that he kept NWAVA alive back in June? The other domain died and he spent a whole weekend after returning from a trip to Taiwan working on the site. That kid BARELY slept. Anyways, wanted to point out that he was one great guy. It wasn't his choice to close down the VA. He just started United because that's his fav VA. And like DMM said, there is a need for a new united :D
