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.

          Wow...you thought that was not polite?

          Re-read what he said. He simply said "no update" and "there will be a post when an update is out" and then he said "thank you".

          What is so impolite about that?

          All because he gave you an answer you didn't want to hear doesn't mean it was impolite.

            😂

            how about using the search for „update“ so Chris wouldn‘t have to write the same sentence every second day?

            the latest update regarding an update was on I think April 14th.

                      I meant as in things are broken so until a possible hotfix comes we users would have to wait. I’m not saying this is the case but a possibility

                          Scott,

                          You'd be amazed how fast I can talk when going into a sector with a good controller who moving metal like a pro.

                          But I can also talk slower than a west kentucky alfalfa grower with a xanax habit if I feel i'm getting slapped around for no good reason.

                          I'm not proud... but I have had to go and done stood out in the alfalfa field a few times in 25 years of this flying thing.

                            Now that's funny! and true. I've been flying longer than I've been controlling. I've heard it from both sides of the mic. I still love (And I've seen this on both sides as well) "Have a great day" un key the mic "Idiot" :-)

                              I can relate. I retired 3 years ago after 35 years including 5 at van Nuys (AKA The Zoo). The things that were said when we unkeyed the mike would make for great comedy. Once told a foreign student traffic 12 o'clock 2 mile a blimp (he had him bore sighted), his reply "Looking". Those were the days

                            Robert,

                            I can remember being sequenced into KORD where the controller never stopped talking, no one was to read back a clearance, and if the controller saw that you were not doing what he instructed, the next clearance was a vector to last. Professionals working with professionals.

                              That phrase is used on initial contact loosely speaking.... come'on, there is nothing more impressive than a GCA back in the day when the fighters were so unstable one could not shoot an ILS if you wanted to. I've seen F-4 Phantoms all over the Rhine-Phalz on GCA approach to Ramstein in the 70's.

                              When I was in Vietnam there was more than once when I was on a GCA approach to minimums and 10 minutes into a 20 minute light. Fifteen hundred hours of those kind of adventures will give a person gray hair at 24. ROFL

                              Just wanted to correct the “initial contact” statement. Words have meaning , specially in aviation. The first GCA controller will set up on a circuit, if needed, then hands you off to the final controller close to or on final. He’ll let you know when to stop further acknowledgment.

                              There is nothing more humbling than doing a GCA down to minimums, specially when there is no other approach to back it up on fast mover. (This is more rare nowadays with RNAVs approaches). Got a bunch of white hair doing that.

                            When I flew in the areas around NYC, the controllers went on like auctioneers and since the majority of pilots were pros, it was normal and you learned. I do remember one, however, when I was in a C152 who slowed down enough to warn me that a flock of geese was gaining on me.

                              Avid user of PMDG products for over five years, I have been a frequent visitor to this forum but never needed to register. Today I did, to voice an opinion.

                              PMDG, regardless of its position at the apogee of flight sim add-on aircraft, remains a business. In business, the customer is ALWAYS king. Period. The OP asked a question, very repetitive and possibly pointless I will agree, but justified nonetheless from the perspective of someone who has invested money in your business and has not received an update in a while (considering how fast this field and its news move, what was once done monthly or sparingly should now be done almost daily to quench modern thirst and expectations, it's the social media, over-informed world we live in, better embrace it).

                              The reply was dry, grammatically poor, borderline rude and did not offer an ounce of sympathy or empathy.

                              I very much appreciate the resulting avalanche of old-timer replies who saw a chance to brag about pushing tin or flying it back in the days, but this is not a pissing contest and real word experience means nothing in terms of dollars spent. We all look forward to flying our PMDG beauties in v5 and in these days of confinement and worry, a few words of encouragement and progress report, or the honest lack thereof, from the powers that be, would do wonders.

                              Respect.

                                Wrong. And I have watched customers who decided to push that point as hard as possible find out the hard way that there is a limit.

                                  Of course! This is meant from the business' perspective, not the customer's!

                                  If a business owner yourself, you're probably not very successful, are you. ;-)

                                    My friend,

                                    Trading/marketing via mind/mentally is something else , there is no issues..., it is completely different to trade by building walls on the side where the customer is right.

                                    Best regards

                                        So if a customer asked for a product for free, are you implying they should get that?

                                        Do keep in mind, though, that PMDG does have staff around the world, so English might not necessarily be their native language.
