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.

    I see it differently, it would take them 10 minutes to let us know if they can do it or not. And 1000 people could stop hitting F5 on the shop page or visiting the forum for the hundredth time hoping for news.

      They're certainly failing to communicate adequately right now. They might be good at talking rubbish when not needed, but when things actually need to be said they bury their head in the sand.

        Updated the store item again. The brand was changed from "PMDG FOR P3D" to "PMDG FOR MSFS".

          I'm sure I am reading entirely too much into it, but it doesn't seem like something they'd be fiddling with if the release had been delayed.

        Yeah - hang on guys - we are accusing them now of stuff and for all we know they might be uploading that plane to the store as we speak. Im also very hyped for this plane, but we need to take a step back and maybe go watch a movie or go do something else to get our minds off this . . .

                As much I'm looking forward to the release, some people need to; grow up and get a life. There is more to life than flight sim. There are much bigger things happening in the world than a PMDG release. It will come when it comes. So many self entitled people in this community, its toxic.

                Go outside, get fresh air and enjoy family time, be around people you love. Be grateful there is a developer willing to put the time, effort and dedication into delivering a quality product.

                It will arrive when it arrives. No one owes you anything! You need to realise that. Your life is not ruined by a short delay or a percieved lack of communication because it's what "YOU" want. Quite frankly its disappointing and disgusting.

                Enjoy what you have and be grateful of what's to come when it does!

                  It was, I never voice on forums. I've been a PMDG customer since FS9 and bought the original 737NG on a disk! I never post, but the whole thing just grinds my gears now . Popcorn is the go to, but I just couldn't hold it in any longer

                  I think the best thing people in here could do right now is stop posting until the 737 is released.

                        I would agree with you, but unfortunately, once it's out a whole other set of complaints will emerge. Best to just ignore them and keep checking for the announcement.

                        even though I know I will get bored after 1 week. I still want it out. and rsr communication in forums absolutely terrible. no update and when there is update a false estimated release date.He predicted millions of times and each time he was wrong about release date maybe he should stop teasing his buyer

                      There was an update 6 days ago, the hope was a release for this weekend, no update was promised, the wording was "Stay tuned. We shall keep you posted.". You see how there's no timeframe attached? They'll be an update when RSR decides to give an update, what would you rather have, an update of "sorry no release this weekend" or "sorry no release this weekend but we have now identified the issue and we are 99% confident of a release date"

                        I think they were victims of their own staunchness of never speculating a date until they were certain. Randazzo gave the community the most news about a potential release date with this update than he has given in the last 6 months, so it’s natural for people to run with it and get excited. Hell, there’s been news articles about it.

                        FlyingInFocus - yeah in hindsight, saying the hope was for this weekend was probably the wrong move, it is a bit of in-between a rock and a hard place, people complain for a lack of information and complain for information that doesn't pan out,

                        I’d rather have an update of sorry no release this weekend and I’d like it at the earliest possible opportunity. There’s no way on this earth the guys at PMDG do not know if it’ll be released this weekend or not yet, so they could at least give us the heads up.

                        Don’t forget we were supposed to have this bird a very long time ago. But thus far, many excuses have been thrown at us.

                          Not true, anything can happen and change at the very last minute in the development scene.

                            Oh I agree this dev cycle hasn't been the most smooth sailing for either PMDG or us as customers, I'm just hoping issues from this cycle have been ironed out so we don't see repeats for the other NGs and the heavies.

                            As for an update, we're different - that's fine, for me I'd prefer the next update to be the release update, even if that's another few weeks off

                                You can still see it in your basket if you added it before they removed the test listing

                              Ya'll have gotten so crazy about the release of the 737 for MSFS that you have failed to correct each other when someone does not post their full name at the end of their message. I see countless messages that have forgotten to do this. Please PMDG Forums, get back to your usual ways. 😆

                              Yeah, it is my first post, and yes I am excited too. But I miss the old ways! C'mon, we need more users correcting others for not stating their first and last names like the good ole days.

                              We have so many great aircraft (Milviz 310, A32NX, BAE 146, MD80, Concorde, etc.), so many great new sceneries from Aerosoft, Pyreegue, Flightbeam that there is much to explore while we await this aircraft. I haven't even gotten to half of the aircraft and sceneries I have downloaded yet. Do some exploring, enjoy the beauty of MSFS for what it is and this aircraft will be ready for us soon to enjoy as well.

                              We all need to remember that this is absolutely hands-down the best time in our lives to be flight simmers. The level of immersion, detail, and graphics is outstanding. And if anyone needs a hug, go watch FlyingFabio. He's just the best there is when it comes to streaming MSFS.

                                Sorry, but in this day and age, first and last name on a public forum is archaic. You don’t need to know exactly who I am, just like I don’t need to know exactly who you are.

                                    Its nice to see the community is so hyped about this, as we get older, the excitement tends to fade away on most things, but not for a digital 737! RSR is online by the way!

                                    I won't be too disappointed if it doesn't arrive this weekend, but I am a little disappointed in PMDG's failure to read the room here. I'd have thought it would be obvious that there is a huge number of people almost desperate for some info and also obvious whether or not it's happening this weekend. But perhaps they are more agile than I am giving them credit for.

                                          They’re selfish and don’t care about the stress and anxiety they’re causing the vast majority of their users.

                                          The amount of wonga we spend with these guys really means we shouldn’t put up with such bullshit.

                                            I personally don't think it's that TBH.

                                            I'm am wondering why though. Might be just that they are so close that they are still reluctant to make the call. Dunno.

                                            But I'm sure there are thousands here who would appreciate knowing where we are at and what we can be planning to do this weekend. XD

                                          So for those getting messages about internet connection needed, don't worry, your nic is not dead, Microsoft in thier infinite wisdom pushed out an update to your built in win defender and firewall, you just need to disable live scanning, and also go into quarantined list and remove the quarantined file that is linked to msfs and your in. took me a few to figure it out, but hey. Also I do think an update is warranted, by now they know if they can release this weekend, and a simple I am sorry, but maybe next week message should be warranted if they can not do it. does not indeed have to be a long explanation, we all understand.
