IFATC Tags

I think all IFATC should get tags on the community saying so, so people can easily tell who they are in the incident of ghosting, and other problems. This would help immensely when contacting controllers, etc.

A much easier method would be this;

🤔simply put NO. I don’t even like people using it in their display name in app. If you’re controlling on the expert server isn’t that already implied.

This would be easy with an IFATC badge that could be made a title.

Could clean up some of the “Name-XXXX IFATC” posts.

That’s quite a lot of menial labour. If the aim is to find the controller easier the database is a much easier and cleaner way for everyone. Perhaps, Discourse’s Groups function could be utilised as I’ve never seen it being used

I think that would be a good idea. Either that or a group.

There’s “groups” already. You just have to be in one and it’s not public…

Yes I know that but I’ve never seen it utilised for a public reference directory

I’m sure this has already been said by Laura and co somewhere…

If we letting xxxx group get a tag then where does it stop, ie if IFATC get tags then why not IFAE ( Editors) if the editors can then why can’t IFAE group. I’m would like to think its an avenue FDS would not go down, but these days who knows what they will decide to do ¯_(ツ)_/¯

IFATC would be getting tags for the purpose of being able to easily get in contact with IFATC members for complaints, comments, etc. Everyone getting tags would be pointless, but there are many other groups that could use them.

And that’s the issue. If one group gets them everyone wants them, It would eventually cause such a headache for FDS it wouldn’t be worth it & it also creates a “status” issue. “We have tags & are therefore much better than eveyone else”

What’s wrong with the current system, if I have an issue with IFATC Joe Blogs, I see his display name & some screenshots and the issue gets resolved by Tyler & the ATC thing. Why try and fix something that’s not broken.

I see where you are coming from, however, anyone can become an Airport Editor. IFATC is much harder to achieve, and users must go through a rigorous process to get in. I do agree, however, how when you give one person a toy, everyone else wants it too.

Ignore me, I just realised this was posted in meta and is for here not in game. In which case, do as you please, I could care less.

Obviously I can’t even read the whole first sentence of the post lol :/

Adding onto what you said, the people with the tags (such as IFATC, or IFAE) would have earned their tags for working hard enough to achieve membership in one of those organizations.

He’s implying this on the forum not the game. I think it’s a great idea and it would be very useful in many ways.

Yes, I would like this on the forum.
Then you don’t have fakes on the forum.

I don’t believe that’s been an issue at any point.
