- Merge ORR, GD and PF GD into one General Discussion only about the game Thread to make the forums more active. It would be much easier for all the moderators.

- Open up a OT pilots lounge again which this whole place seems to be anyways now. A place for mods to release their banhappy anger at.

- skinners forum, Have stickies for each plane type to keep skins at least somewhat organized.

- Data Charts Forum, similiar to the skinners forum having a sticky of each aircraft type, but having data charts, device link plots only allowed to be posted there. Fake charts get removed by moderators, not a forums for fm discussion about charts but a collection of all nations sourced data tests.

- remove all spammers posts not lock but remove completely with a pm saying the reason.

- any moved, deleted or locked thread gets a pm and shown the rule it broke in the forum user agreement.

- banning users should require the community managers approval and the whole mod teams choice.

- Get more news on whats being worked on and dev screenshots that require no less then 3 minutes of time to get and update webpage.

- Skin update patches, between the next official patches release skins patches coded into the game, these would be optional patches that do not affect game version. Appoint someone who has the ability to add these type of patches limiting to 50-100m each one. Since skindownload is non existant online and would make the transition time between patches seem much shorter.

and no i do not want to be a mod but just some suggestions on improving this place a bit and get the old cwos crowd back and simhq crowd.

BAN YOUR A*S.................. then ban it again.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


For what its worth I think you are confusing the roll of the Mods, they do not have a say in the rooms we have, thats a UBI thing and the Mods we do have are very balanced and I can't fault any of them........

I like the idea of an aircraft type sticky thread for emprical data. That would turn the forum into a resource.

Agreed Been requested several times


- Open up a OT pilots lounge again which this whole place seems to be anyways now. A place for mods to release their banhappy anger at.

Sort of agree, I don't think any of us are Ban Happy. I'm not for sure. I've only Banned three or Five in over a years time.

- skinners forum, Have stickies for each plane type to keep skins at least some what organized.

Not a Bad Idea, I skin I might just try this over there.

- Data Charts Forum, similiar to the skinners forum having a sticky of each aircraft type, but having data charts, device link plots only allowed to be posted there. Fake charts get removed by moderators, not a forums for fm discussion about charts but a collection of all nations sourced data tests.


Not a bad idea but who is smart enugh to know for certain they are all legit?
- remove all spammers posts not lock but remove completely with a pm saying the reason.

- any moved, deleted or locked thread gets a pm and shown the rule it broke in the forum user agreement.

This is my Practice, but some times I grab something inbetween work and can't finish it till later

- banning users should require the community managers approval and the whole mod teams choice.

Hard to impliment, we are not in contact on an instant notice. Some Bans require immediate reaction

- Get more news on whats being worked on and dev screenshots that require no less then 3 minutes of time to get and update webpage.

Agreed

- Skin update patches, between the next official patches release skins patches coded into the game, these would be optional patches that do not affect game version. Appoint someone who has the ability to add these type of patches limiting to 50-100m each one. Since skindownload is non existant online and would make the transition time between patches seem much shorter.

This one is for Oleg or 1C to answer

and no i do not want to be a mod

This is a wise choice

but just some suggestions on improving this place a bit and get the old cwos crowd back and simhq crowd.

That would be fine, No problem with any of them aslong as they try to fit in and not start the Tom Foolery

A sticky for each plane would fill the first couple of pages of the forum alone... I don't think that would help to be honest, just my opinion..

Personally...i like the boards the way they are..because..it gives people a chance to peruse..for instance...the Rookie/novice to remain on the front page long enough for someone to reply, also the boards are quite at the moment because most are on holiday...just wait for the next patch...why do you think there are so many wonderful patches...because Oleg and crew have us in their wonderful web..keeping us interested for BoB...i'm here by choice...because of the great talents of the community and 1c

And also GD is for General discussion...IE:i dont think this should do that
PF: praise,insult...i want this
ORR: found a bug/fault...please rectify..heres my proof/evidence/opinion(where theres no evidence)...btw, i think 1c are the best for putting up with us

I like the plane skin sticky Idea. To many planes as TT said, but the most popular planes could get a sticky. Spit, Mustang, T-bolt, 109, 190, Zeke. If anything it could be Stickyed by theater. ETO, PTO, MTO, EastFront.


Who would want to be a MOD, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

You've got some good ideas there Leadspitter http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I don't want to merge the rooms. PF seems to be mostly on topic where GD has reverted to a General Aviation Lounge. I like the PF room as it is the place to find game info and ask questions. A good source for newcomers. If you water it down with general aviation (GD), it becomes not so n00b friendly. The Pilots Lounge of old has no place on a game forum. There are plenty of general BBSs to visit for that.

The issue with the Mods, if you call it an issue, is simple. Don't mess around and you'll never lose your privleges. If you don't know how to be civil or can't understand why you were banned, then we probably don't want/need you here anyhow.
