First, let me say that in the short time I have been a member of the IFC community I have met some great people, enjoyed some interesting posts and opinions, and I am looking forward to continuing to do so!
There is, however, something that’s beginning to irritate me…
Whilst having my morning coffee I was happily scrolling through the new and updated posts, and was amazed that the first three I opened were most replied to by ‘Mini-Mod’ and ‘Post Police’ comments. I’ve noticed a lot of this around the forums in general.
I appreciate that as fans of a simulator we are keen for realism, and by our own nature, like to follow a clear set of rules. However, when everyone jumps on a post for being ‘in the wrong category’, ‘has a mod approved this’, to the point that it takes over the thread completely - that’s just negative.
The whole point of an online community is to share and communicate about a common interest. It shouldn’t be to criticise others for poor category selection, and to convince everyone that a post is not allowed unless mod approved prior to it actually being posted!
The mods we have in IFC do an incredible job, and I for one appreciate the time they commit to making the place a friendly and open community. To those who post replies regarding post approval and placement, that are not appointed as mods - please let the real mods do their job and…
…”If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”
Let’s keep IFC a friendly place that encourages communication, support each other in our learning and generally be positive to others 😊
