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.

    Killing Trolls

    Folks-

    We have had an influx of trolls over the past day or so that appears to be part of an effort by an individual to whom we gave the boot for engaging in identity theft, among other behaviors.

    I normally don't comment on threads that we take out- but I just eliminated six threads on various topics, as well as all of his associated replies in other threads.

    If you guys see anyone acting in a manner that is overtly aggressive, just plain offensive or clearly looking to "Start something" just report the thread and one of us will review and either leave it be or kill it off.

    I'm sorry he got a few hours of uninterrupted time today. We were working on other things this afternoon.

      I would buy the 747 for $500 if they would drop it by end of June lol
      Too bad we won't see it till mid/end of 2023... we'll be actually super lucky to see it in 2023 I think...

    It's a sad state of affairs when someone has to knock a fantastic product and it's team, it's the we want everything now mentality, personally can't stand people like that, good job for booting them

      Wayne-

      It has always been this way. I worry more when what we are doing is so unnoticed that nobody bothers to pay any attention whatsoever.

        Trolls. They've moved out from under bridges and now have internet access. What is this world coming to? ;-)

          Captain, I use the PTO shaft from a Viper (F-16 to those who were just confused) to knock those trolls senseless. The splined end that goes into the ADG fits well in the hand and provides a sturdy non-slip grip, and the 3-bolt flanged end that bolts up to the engine gearbox provides good damage all around - nasssssty trollses...

          Anyway, thanks for eliminating the threat so that you can continue the mission.

          Cheers!

            Good.

            The fewer trolls there are, the easier is it to assume people are arguing and posting in good faith.

              Good comment. I agree totally as long as we don’t call good faith comments trolls just because we don’t agree or find the question uncomfortable.

                Speaking of shafts. Did anyone find pogo stick or segway yet in MSFS?

                  A pogo stick was found, but not where you would expect.

                    I guess every Captain has this problem, do we divert to the nearest airport to throw off that troublesome passenger?

                      Maybe - only people with a certain amount of posts will able to start a new thread. Right now any dope can post anything.

                        It's fine in theory but you have influx of newbies coming in from MSFS and most of the time they need legitimate help that this forum can provide. Comes with a territory I didn't see that many whackamoles. around either admins are really good at swinging pogo stick or we have manageable amount of them.

                        Chris, would you really take an outdated 767 over a brand new 787?

                          It's a trap men. Full retreat. This topic was created to draw in last remaining survivors of the great purge.
