I think upon creating a live account, new users must (somehow) also be given a linked account to this forum, and some help pages etc that must be viewed prior to flying.
Every single day, every single hour I fly, there is atleast 5 users who are just useless and have no common sense whatsoever, or regard for other users. They destroy the LIVE experience over and over again.
I’m not talking about minor infractions, I’m talking about planes blatantly taking off in the opposite direction to myself and the wind, after I called inbound twice (after he announced that he was taxiing to the opposite runway) then base, then final. Then he announces take off directly against me, then I call final again. Then I’m on a 1 mile short final and he just takes off straight at me?
I’m that sick of it that I decided to start naming and shaming and contacting users directly - but as I expected, NOT ONE of these idiots is on the forums trying to learn or enjoy the experience in an orderly fashion.
I paid (can’t remember exactly) around AU$70 for my subscription, and I’ve literally purchased a licence to play airborne Mario Kart with 10 year olds.
Either hurry the F** up and train more advanced ATC like you keep saying, so the people who want to fly on a realistic simulator can do so, or force new users to read forums, or have an account where they are contactable, even if we have to go through moderators with screenshots etc.
The system at the moment doesn’t work. 99% of the people on this forum (whether or not they did before and have now learnt) comply with rules and fly realistically in consideration of others. These other people don’t, and THEY need to be the ones on here.
