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.

    Methinks there'll be an intermission to let the crew recover after all that hard work on the 777 update and -200ER expansion, then full steam ahead on GFO. As the next CTP will be on the 24th of April, that should leave plenty of time, assuming that all goes well with the development and finishing. I hope it'll be out before then.

    Seconded!

    It's about time more progress on GFO is made, so I'd expect energies to become more focused on that in the coming weeks.

    Well, Robert did hint at a megalodon of surprises, so you never know that it might be true.

    I‘m pretty sure there will be some people who won‘t like it just for the reason not to like it. ^^ those who don‘t like it because it simply doesn‘t appeal them won‘t care much and just move on ^^

    Well there’s a 30 minute long presentation of it on YT, so that gives a pretty good impression about what it is...

    In my opinion it should just say on the website: "when PMDG GFO is made live" instead of "when PMDG GFO is made live in late 2020!"

    It is never a good idea to mention a release date/year, which PMDG is usually good at.
    assuming that it will be ever released

    Until then I wish you all a happy new year 2021. Stay save

    I personally believe that was an educated guess that slipped into the shops page.

    Anyone who's well clued-up would know that it's still taking time, but a casual customer who isn't familiar with the matter may still see the bullet point and think that "late 2020" is the case, when we know it's not.

    It says on the 737 page "PMDG Global Flight Operations compatibility (when PMDG GFO is made live in late 2020!)". On that page, the wording of it doesn't indicate an expected release date for GFO, only that it will be made available in late 2020. It would be a different story if it said "when PMDG GFO is anticipated to be live in late 2020".
