PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

          Daniel,

          Please check the forum guidelines that you are required to accept upon signing up. We require a signature.

          Thank you for your cooperation.

            Nah. Let's see if you ban a paying customer over something so completely trivial; because I've always suspected that the lot of you are wound way too tight and my interactions with you and your staff back that assertion up because they have been universally negative so far. I've fully identified myself to you so the ball is in your court now.

              Well you’re also choosing to pick a fight over something trivial. In fact it sounds like you want drama. In your very first sentence you bring up a ban and then you make an accusation against PMDG backed by what you claim to be universally negative interactions. There are far more civil ways to make your case if you truly just felt a username with your full name could take the place of a signature. Respect goes a long way...

              Also, side note, getting banned from the forums doesn’t stop you from using your purchased products. It also doesn’t stop you from getting support because PMDG uses a support ticket system. Usage of this forum isn’t that closely tied to the cash you spend on PMDG’s products. Case in point, people who don’t own PMDG products could make an account and post here if they wanted to. If anything the use of this forum is a privilege more than anything else. And like any privilege, it can be taken away.

                PMDG have a history of very rude behavior toward anyone who are critical of their products. I dealt with this over on the AVSim forums too.

                But let's pretend for a second that I don't have legitimate grievances. Let's isolate this particular issue in a vacuum, I've already identified myself by name. Yet I get a condescending attitude from RSR and the mod staff about it. All because I'm not technically in compliance with the rules; even if I've made a good faith effort to be in spiritual compliance. Respect is a two way street. They want it from me, then they need to give it to me in return.

                  You keep arguing. Rules are clear. You agreed on these as a requirement before you sign up in the forum. First rule requires to sign your post. Using your name as forum username identifies who you are but technically you are not following the rules you agreed and being folowed by the other forum users.

                  I really do not understand why you keep going. Setting a signature is simple. You do it and that's all

                  1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum.

                      Well, at the very least - it will certainly be entertaining and interesting to see how your stance plays out - considering all other customers of PMDG including myself - agreed to the rules governing
                      use of and participation in this forum when we signed up. I do see the point you are trying to put forth - alas, good luck with it - but I foresee a future where you may not be permitted to stay and use these facilities - unless you adopt a new tactic whereby you provide the information required in the format and area required.

                      PS: I don't see the condescension from RSR in his request - this is standard prose for all and a first and final warning to all who perhaps were not aware of the rules. No Mod has responded to you here either (mod Im guessing you meant Moderator) - another user Ausflight responded to advise you of the rule regarding signature. This is standard procedure.

                      You do mention "All because I'm not technically in compliance with the rules" - seems clear to me and quite possibly all other users here too (including staff).

                        Dear Daniel,

                        I don't know you and I have no axe to grind with you or anyone on a personal level. I am not employed by PMDG and therefore I hope you will accept what I have to say here with the same good Intentions in which it is posted.

                        You may not be aware or appreciate the fact that all commercial companies that acquire personal data are required to act lawfully at all times; especially when it comes to compliance with government legislation, such as the recently introduced General Dara Protection Regulations, otherwise there can be severe financial penalties imposed on them for any breach.

                        You obviously object to what you believe are rules, but they apply equally to all those of us who wish to make constructive posts in these forums. Captain Randazzo has obviously made a perfectly reasonable and respectful request here and if you still cannot appreciate and understand why there should be no exceptions to his request then you will only have yourself to blame if you are no longer welcome to post in these forums.

                        I wish you well!

                              Gents,

                              No point lecturing him, as he has been removed.

                              In case anyone digging around at some point in the future reads this post and thinks, "Oh, that b*&tard Randazzo banned him for not signing his name!" That was not what got him into trouble.

                              While eventually, yes, he would be required to sign his posts here just as clearly specified at the time of signup, he was quite deliberately confrontational with the moderators and fellow users who merely asked him to adhere to the norms of the forum.

                              He made it clear that he had no intention of doing so, and he did so in a manner that was disrespectful to all of us who take the time to help one another, offer encouragement, and generally try to keep the place peaceful.

                              So I took his ball away and sent him home, as he seemed to intuit I might. I don't take any joy in such a thing, but I'm not going to waste my time in such exchanges as they offer no value to the community.
