Missing ATC commands

So I recently took a hiatus from IF, and I come back to a new ATC interface. There are two former commands that seem to be missing: “please follow instructions” and “check forum tutorials”. Were these removed or now only available on expert? These were helpful commands for aircraft who would state commands that had nothing to do with their actions or who were unsure of what to do (ex. holding short when told to line up).
Thanks!

They were removed from the training server so currently and indefinitely it’s only possible for those commands to be utilised by IFATC.

Thanks! It sucks they got rid of them though…

The “please follow instructions” command was followed by “or you will be ghosted”, which doesn’t make much sense since controllers on the training server are unable to ghost anyways.

It’s a real shame that they were removed. Now there is no way to inform pilots that what they are doing is wrong and thus they may bring bad habits from TS1 to Expert since it was impossible to tell them what they were doing was wrong.

For approach there is a “disregard flightplan follow controller instructions” command, but it’d kinda be nice to something on tower/ground

This subject was brought up a while ago, the answer was worth giving a go, but it’s not working, without these commands or something like them, everything is stacked against the person acting as ATC, not everyone wants to aspire to the expert server but still wants a pretty realistic experience, by having the ability to tell a pilot they are not doing as asked is not helpful to him/her, these commands also alert other pilots that someone is not playing ball, so they can avoid or ignore them.
