Over the last few months, we at IFVARB feel that due to not only the usual effect of time, but also the lack of it amongst our members, that standards have slipped a little on our part. With it being summer, many of our members now have much more free time, and we felt it was time to get things properly organised and back up and running. So we’ve had a little refresher, with some minor changes as shown below.
a.) A user who wants to start a virtual airline will contact an IFVARB Admin via PM - who will confirm the availability of the VA, and whether or not the user is eligible to claim it. Only 1 member should contact the IFVARB, and no one should be invited to the PM, without permission.
b) If so, the user will (be asked to) send a brief mission statement detailing routes, fleet, ranks, staff, and telling us why you’re a good candidate to lead a VA, as well as what is going to make your VA stand out.
c) Upon acceptance of the mission statement, the user will then provide the admin with a website, if ready.
d) This will then be graded within two weeks and will be handed back to the user, containing details for improvement if need be.
Users that stop and start a VA may only apply to make another when the admin team collectively feel that it would be more beneficial to the community this time. This has changed from the old, 30 day wait; we felt this disadvantaged users who had legitimately been planning on transitioning VAs in an effective manner for a while beforehand, but could also be too soon for others to return to the stage. This can now be determined specifically for each individual.
All posts in the #VA Category require permission from the admin team beforehand, please.
Any virtual and fully established group in the community will be considered a VA. e.g Plane and Pilots. Slack/Discord only groups are not supported.
Virtual Airlines should not have any users currently suspended from the IFC as either staff or regular members in their VA - if you have, please contact us for further clarification.
The application of a user may be suspended for as long as needed if they are in bad standing or have behaved in an unreasonable at any point throughout the process.
VAs should avoid mass advertising via PM, unreasonably long and/or unprofessional topic titles, and should only bump threads within reason.
We may require a presence in the public areas of your slack/discord.
VAs are expected to be respectful and act in an educated way on the the Infinite Flight Live Servers, and take both preemptive and post incident actions to ensure a good representation of their virtual. More to follow regarding this for VAs on the IFVARB Slack.
Thanks for all that you do to make this community an increasingly enjoyable place to be!
